5.0 out of 5 stars A classic diplomatic history of 19th Century Europe., 19 Jan. 2000
This review is from: The Great Powers and the European States System, 1815-1914 (Paperback)
This really is the best book I have ever read on international relations in the 19th Century. Bridge and Bullen argue that States conduct foreign policy to pursue their vial interests in a selfish way. This means that policies are predictable, stable, easily understood and therefore compromises are negotiable. Only when States are run by mavericks or attempt to have "ethical" or "moral" foreign policies do problems occur. It is a book that Robin Cook should read. F.R. Bridge I knew as my tutor at Leeds University in the 1980s. I remember his sherry parties with great nostalgia.
