...indisputably the most detailed and authoritative single-volume account of European international history in the fifteen years following the end of the First World War...[the work] affirms Zara Steiner's status as the pre-eminent historian of inter-war international affairs. Martin Conway, EHR 494 Zara Steiner has produced a splendid volume, chock full of detail and with many thought-provoking insights. It will remain a classic for many years to come. For those studying international business history it will serve as an excellent background reference manual to the period...If one were to ask for more it would be the second volume in the same vein.
