During Kaiser Wilhelm II's reign, nature gained a role of central importance to the German national experience. From medical cosmologies and reform-initiatives to consumer practices and lifestyle choices, the appeal of nature transcended individual differences of class or political party. In this pioneering study, Avi Sharma shows how nature, health, and the body became essential ways of negotiating real and imagined social and political problems. Using interpretive methods drawn from the history of science and science studies, Sharma shows how popular health and hygiene movements shaped German ideas about progress and modernity, nature, health, and the body.
