Most of the eleven essays in this book, issued in 2000, originated in a series of lectures organized by the editors and delivered in 1994 at Yale University to commemorate the eightieth anniversary of the outbreak of World War I. Leading experts on the Great War like Modris Eksteins, Holger Herwig, Michael Howard, John Horne and Zara Steiner discuss its causes, character and legacy. Not only the dissolution of the four defeated empires – Russia, Germany, Austria and Turkey – is being dealt with but also the collapse of the optimistic assumption of progress that had defined the nineteenth century. The book draws together military history, international history and cultural history to offer “a wide-ranging summary of current knowledge and debate regarding the First World War”.
