From the Inside Flap

National Bestseller
"New York Times Editors' Choice
Winner of the PEN Hessell Tiltman Prize
Winner of the Duff Cooper Prize
Silver Medalist for the Arthur Ross Book Award
of the Council on Foreign Relations
Finalist for the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award
For six months in 1919, after the end of "the war to end all wars," the Big Three--President Woodrow Wilson, British prime minister David Lloyd George, and French premier Georges Clemenceau--met in Paris to shape a lasting peace. In this landmark work of narrative history, Margaret MacMillan gives a dramatic and intimate view of those fateful days, which saw new political entities--Iraq, Yugoslavia, and Palestine, among them--born out of the ruins of bankrupt empires, and the borders of the modern world redrawn.

Magisterial stuff with a wonderful eye for the illuminating anecdote; even in the most obscure corners of the diplomatic world in 1919.

I ordered two books at the same time. Both were as described. I haven't yet finished reading A Peace to end all Peace. The part I have read is quite thought provoking considering the present problems in the Middle East. I look forward to reading the other book, Paris 1919.
