About the Author:

David Fromkin is University Professor, Professor of International Relations, of History, and of Law at Boston University. He served for three years as chairman of the Department of International Relations and director of the Center for International Relations. He has been a member of the Council on Foreign Relations since 1976. His shorter pieces have appeared in The New York Times, and other publications. He is the author of seven books, including The Question of Government, The Independence of Nations, and In the Time of the Americans. His book, A Peace to End All Peace, was a national bestseller, was chosen by the editors of The New York Times Book Review as one of the dozen best books of the year, and was short-listed for the Pulitzer Prize. His most recent book is EuropeÂ’s Last Summer.

From AudioFile:

Professor Fromkin uses four biographies to tell his story: that of Edward VII of England; Edward's mother, Queen Victoria; his nephew, Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany; and Theodore Roosevelt. He ties the principals together by weighing their influence in a 1906 conference at Algeciras, Spain, convened to determine the fate of Morocco. The events of this period presaged WW I. Narrator Paul Boehmer shows his linguistic skill with the occasional French and German he must perform. He chooses a relaxed tempo that allows listeners to assimilate the abundant historical detail, and he uses a conversational style to add some spark to an otherwise dull rhetoric. Unfortunately, Boehmer misses many opportunities to use an appropriate foreign accent to distinguish the abundant quotes by non-native English speakers. J.A.H. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
