  • "The Great Powers and the European States System, 1814-1914 is a full analytical narrative of the functioning of the European states system over the nineteenth century between the fall of Napoleon in 1814 and the outbreak of the First World War just one hundred years later." "At nearly double the length of the first edition, this book is a very major revision and update. It includes not only the results of the latest research, but also a body of additional information and a number of illuminating maps that will make the subject even more accessible to readers."--BOOK JACKET.
