The Illusion of Peace: International Relations in Europe, 1918-1933
Palgrave Macmillan Limited, 2003 - 214 ページ
"Strongly interpretive and archivally based, The Illusion of Peace examines the emotional, ethnic and economic factors responsible for international instability, as well as the distortion of the balance of power, the abnormal position of the Soviet Union, the weakness of France and the uncertainty of her relationship with Britain, and the inadequacy of the League of Nations. In so doing, the study clarifies the complex topics of reparations and war debts and challenges traditional assumptions, concluding that widespread Western devotion to disarmament and dedication to peace were two of several reasons why democratic statesmen could not respond decisively to Hitler's threat. In this new edition Marks also argues that the Allied failure to bring defeat home to the German people in 1918-19 generated a resentment which contributed to interwar instability and Hitler's rise." "This study has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the latest scholarship."--BOOK JACKET.
