Struggle for Mastery in Europe, 1848-1918 by A. J. P. Taylor
Book DescriptionThe system of international repression ended with the fall of Metternich in 1848. The conflicting ideals of international revolution and collective security came into being with Lenin and Wilson in 1918. Nationalism, tempered by the Balance of Power, dominated Europe in the intervening seventy years. Drawing on a wealth of diplomatic documents, A. J. P. Taylor examines the relations of the Great Powers, when Europe was still the centre of the world. Written in characteristically vigorous prose, this is a challenging and original diplomatic history, that also considers the political and economic forces which made continental war inevitable.

Debunking what were accepted truths about the Second World War, the author argues provocatively that Hitler did not set out to cause the war as part of an evil master plan, but blundered into it partly by accident, aided by the shortcomings of others.
UK Kirkus Review » This is a reprint of Taylor's masterwork. In it he explains, with his usual radical clarity, how the interactions between the great and small powers of Europe developed in 1914 into a great European war, which brought Russia to revolution and came to involve the USA: whereupon 'Europe ceased to be the centre of the world.' Diplomatic history at its forceful best. (Kirkus UK)
