Table of contents
Geoffrey Wawro, University of North Texas, USA
'[This book] has the hallmarks of success stamped through it: breadth of scope, incisive analysis and a lightness of touch in the writing.'
Professor John Keiger, University of Salford, UK
'This is a model of a good history book. It is very well written with a sharp analysis interwoven into the detailed narrative. It is also very accessible, with chapters broken down into distinct sections with a very good index which includes a separate section for key individuals.'
New Perspective - For History Students
'Solid and up-to-date in scholarship, clearly and engagingly written, factually accurate and comprehensive.Anything but a stale re-hashing of the old, well-worn facts about European diplomacy and wars. It is rather an interesting, skilfully woven account and analysis of political strategies and tactics over a whole rich century, full of penetrating judgments and insights and studied with apt quotations from original sources. The first requirement for understanding the nineteenth-century European International system, the history of which is still relevant today, remains knowing in reasonably concrete detail what actually happened and how the international game was played.'
Paul W Schroeder - University of Illinois, USA
