Reichstag Compendiums 1867-1938

Georg Hirth established the precursors of the Official Reichstag Compendiums (Amtliche Reichstags-Handb├╝cher) in 1867. They contain short biographies of all members written in the style still common today, as well as laws and bylaws. The Official Compendiums are particularly suitable for the analysis of the evolution of different types of politicians and the social structure of the Reichstag and individual parties.

The Reichstag Compendiums form the basis of the Database of Reichstag Members (Datenbank der Reichstagsabgeordneten).
