Read full description of the books:



The best book on the causes of World War One that I've read. I perviously most liked Keegan's one volume account of the war, but this book only examines the causes. So basically, Joll allows for the impact of individual leaders and their decisions. However, he ably demonstrates how those freely made decisions were constrained by the constructs of that time period. Each of the following factors gets its own chapter: alliances and traditions of the old diplomacy, militarism and the arms race, domestic politics, international economy, imperialism, and finally a chapter devoted to attitudes about war pro and con. The writing is engaging, thorough, sufficient detail to fully develop his argument without being tedious. He demonstrates that there is enough blame to go around, and that each of the players caused the war in their own way. One aspect brought up by Keegan is over looked by Joll. Keegan demonstrates how communicating by telegram often caused confusion about intentions, and that often military leaders were sending out messages that differed in tone than from the diplomats creating further confusion suggesting that if they had communicated either by telephone or held a conference that the war may have been avoided. However, Joll tended to see the war as more inevitable than avoidable.
