1. What motivated Bismarck to enact reforms in Germany? 2. What kind of reforms were inacted in Germany and Britian?
My answers: 1. Bismarck wanted Germany to be more united and when nationalism spread through Germany it helped Germany become a leading industrial power.
2. I know that workers started to form unions but they were also offered better work conditions by Robert Owen.
I need to know if these answers are correct but I also need a little more information because I have to answer these two questions in a 2 to 3 paragraph essay.

I think you should add that Bismarck was a loyal Prussian and as such made Prussia a strong part of the unified Germany.
