Product details

Product description


This book is a readable, traditional diplomatic history in which scholars will learn something new about events both well and less known. Summing Up: Highly recommended. (G.R. Sharfman, Oglethorpe University, CHOICE)

'Miroslav Sedivý has convincingly demonstrated that he is an expert on European diplomacy and has skilfully and persuasively demonstrated his revisionist case that Metternich's Congress System was in decline as a result of self-seeking policies of Britain, France and the Italian city-states. I can hardly say enough in praise of
the author's extensive multi-lingual research.'

(Robert D. Billinger, Jr, Emeritus Professor of History, Wingate University)

'A masterpiece on the subject of the search for greater security in a precarious world. Anyone interested in international politics in the period between the Congress of Vienna and World War I must read this critical revision of the mainstream view of history.' (Wolfram Siemann, Emeritus Professor of Modern and Contemporary History, Ludwig-Maximilians University, Munich)

'This tour-de-force will become required reading for all students of nineteenth-century Europe.' (Mark Jarrett, author of The Congress of Vienna and its Legacy)

Book Description
