st is to immerse yourself in David King'sVienna 1814, which reads like a novel. A fast-paced page-turner, it has everything: sex, wit, humor, and adventures. But it is an impressively-researched and important story that it tells. There was much frivolousness in the Vienna congress, but it did bring peace to Europe and shape the 19th century; and while the deliberations of the Vienna statesmen took place, the fate of the world hung in the balance.'' -David Fromkin, author ofEurope's Last Summer ''Deftly paced and engagingly written.'' -Publishers Weekly ''King does a superb job of evoking the bedazzling social scene that served as the backdrop to the Congress of Vienna.
