Editorial Reviews


"...White has injected a fresh element into the debate....[his] erudition is clear as he writes authoritatively about the policies and personalities of all the great powers, weaving them into an impressive, if complex, whole." The International History Review

"...this is a useful book in that it widens the nature of the discussion pre-1914 diplomacy....This is a book sure to generate discussion, and a worthy contribution to its field." Keith Neilson, H-Net Reviews

"This is certainly an outstanding addition to the literature on pre-World War I international history....enlightening and highly profitable." Richard Langhorne, American Historical Review

Book Description

The agreements concluded in 1904 and 1907 by Britain, France, Russia and Japan are defined in this study as a Quadruple Entente, a more complete description than the commonly used Triple Entente (which omits Japan) and an acknowledgement that Japan had become a nation of considerable significance to Europe. This wider perspective on the crucial pre-war years shows how, in its political context as well as its geographical terrain and its general impact, the First World War was a world war in every sense.
