No period of European history is as widely studied as that from the Vienna settlement to the Treaty of Versailles. Yet few periods are so widely misunderstood.
Provocatively reinterpreting the events from 1815 to 1920 in Europe, "From Vienna to Versailles" dispels the myths that obscure much nineteenth-century history. Seaman reexamines the notion that middle class-discontent fomented the 1848 revolutions, that Napolean III overthrew' the Second Republic, and that a condition of international anarchy existed in the decade before 1914, among others. Emphatic and challenging, "From Vienna to Versailles" interprets events rather than simply enumerating them, inspiring its readers to have opinions about history, to take sides and debate, to take part in history's writing.
