The origins of the First World War by Gordon Martel( Book )

41 editions published between 1987 and 2017 in English and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Origins of the First World War deals with the policies and the issues that brought Europe to war in 1914. The position of each of the great powers within the international framework is concisely explained. The problems confronting them are also carefully analysed, as is the influence of political and economic structures on the decision-making process. Professor Martel shows how and why the confrontational alliance system came into being and considers the impact upon it of the series of crises that brought the major powers close to conflict in the opening years of the twentieth century. He outlines the terms and obligations that these alliances entailed and discusses the extent to which they were responsible for the outbreak of war. First published in 1987, The Origins of the First World War has proved itself an invaluable aid to students. For this Second Edition Gordon Martel has completely rewritten his original text in the light of recent scholarship. He has also updated the bibliography and added a number of useful reference tools which will help readers to grasp the details more easily. Thus, the main text is now supplemented not simply by a chronology of the principal events, but also by a biographical guide to the personalities mentioned in the book, a glossary of terms, and five maps."--Page 4 of cover

"The Kennedy journals provide new and interesting insight into the relationship between The Times, the government and the Foreign Office during the 'age of appeasement'. This selection from the journals focuses on the period 1932-1939, and recounts his discussions with Ramsay MacDonald, Arthur Henderson, John Simon, Anthony Eden and other leading British politicians, his meetings with Bruning, Ribbentrop, Dollfuss and other leading European politicians and diplomats. The inner workings of The Times is revealed through his relationships with Geoffrey Dawson and Robin Barrington-Ward, while the relationship between the newspaper and the Foreign Office is recounted in his renderings of Robert Vansittart, Reginald Leeper, Arthur Willert and others. The journals are a remarkable record of his attempts to make sense of Hitler and Nazism, Mussolini and Fascism, and to determine how Britain ought to respond to the challenges they posed. Students of journalism and politics will discover in vivid detail how a journalist attempts simultaneously to understand and to shape 'public opinion' and fresh information concerning the unique role played by The Times in influencing government policies."--Jacket
