9781330250846: Modern Europe, 1789-1914 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Modern Europe, 1789-1914

The object of this book is to describe the main lines of development pursued in European politics since the beginning of the French Revolution in 1789. To do this on a really adequate scale would require a work of immensely greater dimensions, and I have attempted no more than an introductory sketch. One result of the Great War has been that a very large number of people is seeking, for the first time, seriously to understand what are called "foreign affairs," the relations in which England stands to other States, and the causes which have helped to produce the present world-convulsion. It is a commonplace that the causes which bring states to hostility or friendship can only be understood when something is known of their respective histories, of the manner of their growth, and of the forces which have conditioned that growth. I have tried, therefore, to produce a book which will assist such students as I have described to gain a foundation of knowledge upon which they can build by further studies.

The modesty of my purpose has conditioned the method pursued in writing the book. I have consistently endeavoured to show how the internal histories of the European States have affected their external relations, and how these in turn have influenced domestic development.
