"A valuable, stimulating and enjoyable book. It combines the essence of Taylor's views, considered judgement upon them, plus a useful summary of recent research on the subject...the contributions taken as an entity constitute a masterly overview and review of the major issues of the interwar period and of the origins of the Second World War."
