A Hall of Mirrors for Our Own Times,
By A Customer
This review is from: Peacemakers Six Months that Changed The World: The Paris Peace Conference of 1919 and Its Attempt to End War (Paperback)
This book offers an amazing insight into the post-war times of 1919 and our own. The complexity and hope in trying to find a lasting peace is wonderfully presented. The writing is rich in the description of the very human attempt to resolve conflict with all its anxieties and expectations. How little the challenges of war and peace, terrorism and assassination, idealism and pragmatism have changed since 1919. Margaret MacMillan's book is a must read for anyone even slightly interested in understanding the times in which we now live.
