Until now, it has been accepted that the Turkish Straits--the Russian fleet's gateway to the Mediterranean--were a key factor in shaping Russian policy in the years leading to World War I. Control of the Straits had always been accepted as the major priority of Imperial Russia's foreign policy. In this powerfully argued revisionist history, Ronald Bobroff exposes the true Russian concern before the outbreak of war: the containment of German aggression. Based on extensive new research, Bobroff provides fascinating new insights into Russia's state development before the revolution, examining the policies and personal correspondence of its policy makers. And through his detailed examination of the rivalries and alliances of the Triple Entente, he sheds new light on European diplomacy at the beginning of the twentieth century.

Review:

""[Bobroff’s] organization is tight, his writing crisp, and his source base massive, thorough, and meticulously documented. His book is an excellent addition to the historical literature on early twentieth-century Russian foreign policy, for which the Turkish Straits, as well as the Austro-German Alliance, the Balkan cauldron, Central Asia, East Asia, and the military and naval arms races proved to be such difficult issues."" - David M. Goldfrank, American Historical Review

""...thorough...Bobroff’s work breaks entirely new ground...This is a very good and interesting book that adds considerably to our knowledge of Russian foreign policy...It is essential reading for anyone interested in international diplomacy of the period."" - Keith Neilson, Russian Review
