This is the only modern study of European international politics to cover the entire timespan from 1763 to 1848. Paul Schroeder's comprehensive and authoritative volume charts the course of international history over this turbulent period, in which the map of Europe was redrawn time and time again. He examines the wars, political crises, and diplomatic opportunities of the age, many of which--the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, the Congress of Vienna and its aftermath--had far-reaching consequences for modern Europe. This book is a worthy complement to A. J. P. Taylor's classic The Struggle for Mastery in Europe 1848-1918
