about

The Versailles Settlement, at the time of its creation a vital part of the Paris Peace Conference, suffers today from a poor reputation: despite its lofty aim to settle the world's affairs at a stroke, it is widely considered to have paved the way for a second major global conflict within a generation. Woodrow Wilson's controversial principle of self-determination amplified political complexities in the Balkans, and the war and its settlement bear significant responsibility for boundaries and related conflicts in today's Middle East. After almost a century, the settlement still casts a long shadow.

This revised and updated edition of The Consequences of the Peace sets the ramifications of the Paris Peace treaties-for good or ill-within a long-term context. Alan Sharp presents new materials in order to argue that the responsibility for Europe's continuing interwar instability cannot be wholly attributed to the peacemakers of 1919-23. Marking the centenary of World War I and the approaching centenary of the Peace Conference itself, this book is a clear and concise guide to the global legacy of the Versailles Settlement.
Alan Sharp is provost of the Coleraine campus at the University of Ulster and an internationally recognized expert on the Treaty of Versailles.

Editorial Reviews

"As a glance at the table of contents shows, there are always more and interesting things to be said on the perennially fascinating question of the Paris Peace Conference. Sadly, too, there is much that is still relevant for our own troubled world."
