Sovereignty at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919

Leonard V. Smith

The Greater War

  • Offers a new perspective on the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, not as a failed experiment in peacemaking, but as an instrumental factor in the creation of a new kind of international cooperation
  • Gives historical context to key elements of International Relations theory and international law
  • Deals with all five treaties produced by the conference, as well as the Treaty of Lausanne of 1923 with post-Ottoman Turkey
  • Considers topics within sovereignty as diverse as the criminalization of Germany and the other defeated Central Powers, the unmixing of lands and peoples in drawing borders, the influence of revolution, and the formation of a new locus of sovereignty in the League of Nations
  • Takes a broad geographic approach, considering not simply Europe, but also the Middle East, Africa, and Asia
