Editorial Reviews

The backgrounds and interests of the coeditors reveal a great deal about the core focus. The writing skills and knowledge of diplomatic history of Margaret MacMillan, author of the widely acclaimed Paris 1919, are often in evidence. Her particular interest in the period surrounding the First World War is complemented by Francine McKenzie’s grounding in the interwar years ... Scholars are indebted to MacMillan, McKenzie, and the other contributors to this volume for assessing the twentieth-century background so carefully. - Sylvia Bashevkin - University of Toronto Quarterly, Winter 2004/05
