Summary

Outlining the long-running rivalries that shaped international relations into the mid-nineteenth century and beyond, this important new edition provides an up-to-date survey of the decisive events and changes that gave birth to the European state system. Unusual in extending across the divide usually represented by French Revolution of 1789, the book demonstrates how events both before and after this great upheaval merged to produce the central political development in modern European history. For undergraduates studying Modern European history.
