An Excerpt From The Preface:

 

The present volume, the third of the series, concludes our studies of the social side of the Reformation in Germany. Anabaptism was essentially a German product and did not take a root in the Latin countries.

 

But the importance of this great movement in all lands possessing a strong Teutonic element, not even excluding England, has been little realized by the average historian. The latter has been inclined for the most part to dismiss this tremendous upheaval of the disinherited classes at the close of the Middle Ages with a few paragraphs of abuse and often misrepresentation.
