MEDIA REVIEWS
What this book offers is a wealth of detail on an interesting choice of subjects. The research is sound, the interpretations are thoughtful, and the writing is clear and sometimes elegant ... a major contribution to our understanding of how two communities with much in common have endeavoured to overcome the powerful forces keeping them apart. -- John Hilliker * International Journal, Summer 2003 *
The backgrounds and interests of the coeditors reveal a great deal about the core focus. The writing skills and knowledge of diplomatic history of Margaret MacMillan, author of the widely acclaimed Paris 1919, are often in evidence. Her particular interest in the period surrounding the First World War is complemented by Francine McKenzie's grounding in the interwar years ... Scholars are indebted to MacMillan, McKenzie, and the other contributors to this volume for assessing the twentieth-century background so carefully. -- Sylvia Bashevkin * University of Toronto Quarterly, Winter 2004/05 *
