Europe's Last Summer Who Started the Great War in 1914?

Hardcover, New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2004. First Edition. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. "In a gripping narrative that has eerie parallels to events in our own time, Fromkin shows that not one but two wars were waged, and that the first served as pretext for the second. Shedding light on such current issues as pre-emptive war and terrorism, he provides detailed descriptions of the negotiations and incisive portraits of the diplomats, generals, and rulers - the Kaiser of Germany, the Czar of Russia, the Prime Minister of England, among other key players. And he reveals how and why diplomacy was doomed to fail." Ships same or next business day. Spine is slightly skewed and loose, minor edge wear, small bumps on spine ends, two small water spots on back board. Pages are tight, bright, and clean. Dust jacket has minor edge and shelf wear. ; B&W Photographs; 1.24 x 9.76 x 6.52 Inches; 349 pages. [Item #54329]
