At times this led to co-operation and at others to downright opposition. Therefore the Centre Party deputies could not be taken for granted and the imperial government dared not ignore its views. Social Democrats As referred to on page 13, the spread of socialism in Germany went hand in hand with the creation and rise of the SPD. 8: The major political parties represented in the Reichstag 1890–1918 Party Description German Conservative Party (Deutschkonservative Partei, DKP) The party of the landowning farming community.

The lack of effective civil control over the military had important consequences for domestic and international policies: most significantly (and unfortunately) was the drawing up of the Schlieffen Plan in 1905 (see pages 73–4). In one sense the aristocratic dominance in the army was beginning to wane slightly by 1914, as most of the lower officers came from the middle classes, rather than the landed aristocracy. However, they tended to model themselves on their upper-class colleagues so the mentality of the army stayed very much the same and the majority of the highest ranks were still ‘chosen’ by birth and class, not by merit.

However, the gradual decline in their electoral fortunes, combined with the strength of the Centre Party and the increase in the popularity of the Social Democrats, only served to worsen the problem of finding majority support for the passing of legislation. By 1914 this situation showed no sign of being solved since the constitution did not permit measures to be taken to allow for changing circumstances.
