The narrative is well ordered and interesting.The book contains maps and genealogical tables, an exhaustive index and a bibliography which the students will value as n aid to interpretation of the whole period as well as a clue to any part of it. By far the best and handiest account of the international politics of the nineteenth century, the book is a book to students and a serviceable work of reference for the cultivated general reader.
