The Coming of the First World War

Edited by R. J. W. Evans and Hartmut Pogge von Strandmann

A Clarendon Press Publication

This book, based on public lectures given in Oxford, contributes to the debate about the conflict which transformed modern European history. It presents readable and judicious accounts of the events and decisions which directly precipitated the outbreak of war in each of the main countries and assesses the role of public opinion and popular mood in determining and responding to the "July Crisis." Published on the seventieth anniversary of the 1918 Armistice, The Coming of the First World War will appeal to anyone interested in how wars begin.
