Origin of the First World War
More than one
hundred years have passed since the beginning of the First World War, which
contemporaries have christened as the Great War. A huge amount of literature
dedicated to this war has been published in the world, and continues to concern
the minds of people from various countries. In Soviet Russia this war turned
out to be forgotten. They simply crossed it out of the historical process as if
it had never existed. A few pages in history textbooks and popular pamphlets is
all that was dedicated to this event, which changed the modern world beyond
recognition. Over the past few years the growing interest of readers and
historians in Russia in the issues of the First World War bears witness to the
fact that this theme is beginning to emerge from a state of oblivion and
gradually take its rightful place. However until now, none of our native
authors have examined the origins of the First World War i.e. they have not
seriously studied its causes or looked at the historical course of the
countries that unleashed this world war prior to when swords crossed.
This book is the
first and to date only comprehensive examination of the causes of the First
World War in Russian historiography. It has been based on multiple sources and
studies, introduced for the first time into the academic environment. In the
book not a single word is written about the war itself and military action. It
describes how politicians and diplomats from European states stoked the fire
causing it to rage into a war. The distinguishing feature of the book is that
the author studies the path to war of each major European power. The
narrative unfolds for the reader images of many leaders, politicians and
diplomats involved one way or another in the development of the First World
War. Some of these names and figures are unfamiliar to the Russian reader. This
makes the book even more alluring.
This publication is aimed both
at specialist historians and a wide readership interested in the poorly studied
issues of world and national history.
