The causes of war have tended to attract more attention than the
causes of peace, yet the two are intimately related. Indeed there
was much talk of war during the unprecedentedly long periods of
peace between the European great powers in the years 1815-1854 and
again in 1871-1914, the Near Eastern crises of 1878 and 1887-8
being only two of the more notable examples. In the case of the
latter, there occurred a spell of fatalistic and belligerent talk
in both Berlin and Vienna which in many ways anticipated that which
gripped those capitals by 1914. This valuable book will be welcomed
by anyone wishing to understand the nature of European state
relations in the nineteenth century. Professor Bartlett examines
why major wars did happen and did not happen, with particular
attention being paid to the events of 1914.
