Len's Summary: Breaks no new ground but still an important contribution to scholarship on the Great War. -- Part of a flood of new and revised writings examining causes of the Great War. This one is by a premier Canadian historian who wrote an acclaimed history of the Paris peace conference Paris 1919: Six Months That Changed the World. See also James Joll’s compact study The Origins of the First World War (Third Edition, Pearson, 2008) which sets a high standard for such analysis.
