Challenging the common assumption that the Treaty of Versailles led to the opening of a second European war, Zara Steiner provides an analysis of the attempts to reconstruct Europe during the 1920s. She examines the efforts that failed but also those which gave hope for future promise that are usually underestimated, if not ignored. She also shows that a degree of stabilization was achieved even though it was fragile, incomplete, and did not last through the
1929-1933 period when nationalist remedies replaced international strategies on both the economic and political levels of European relations. A second volume,The Triumph of the Night, will examine the period from 1934 to 1941.

Martin Conway, EHR 494 ...indisputably the most detailed and authoritative single-volume account of European international history in the fifteen years following the end of the First World War...[the work] affirms Zara Steiner's status as the pre-eminent historian of inter-war international affairs.

Derek H. Aldcroft, Business History Zara Steiner has produced a splendid volume, chock full of detail and with many thought-provoking insights. It will remain a classic for many years to come. For those studying international business history it will serve as an excellent background reference manual to the period...If one were to ask for more it would be the second volume in the same vein.
