Falk, Eduard

Resource Toolbox

German publicist died in Paris July 7, 1863. Originally destined for a mercantile career, he later turned to study, and after having passed his examination at the gymnasium, entered the University of Berlin, whence he was graduated in 1858. He then entered the service of the state as assessor, and began at the same time his career as journalist, writing for the "Magdeburger Zeitung." He wrote a number of pamphlets on questions of the day, as "Brennuszug und Moskowitenthum, Mahnruf an das Deutsche Volk" (1859), in which he advocated the cause of Austria against Napoleon III., and on the suggestion of the Duke of Coburg, who took a great interest in his writings, he published this pamphlet in an enlarged edition under the title "Die Despoten als Revolutionä re." He also wrote: "Preussen's Aufgabe in Deutschland: Rechtsstaat Wider Revolution," 1859 "Deutsche Federn in Oesterreich's Doppeladler" "Gallischer Judaskuss, Antwort auf Edmond About's Schrift: Preussen im Jahre 1860," 1860 "Mä nner und Maassregeln," a defense of self-government "Der Entlarvte Palmerston," 1861 and "Die Verfassung England' s," 1862, which a year later passed into a second edition and an English translation. He then went to Paris to prepare himself for a new work on the development of political law in the European states since the French Revolution, with which he had hoped to enter upon an academic career in the University of Heidelberg, but he was killed in the French capital, being run over by an omnibus.
