Description of Paris 1919 by Margaret MacMillan PDF
“Paris 1919: Six Months That Changed the World” is a great book for anyone interested in knowing how historic mistakes can morph into later historic problems. Margaret MacMillan is the author of this book. Margaret is a Canadian historian and professor at the University of Oxford. A leading expert on the history and international relations, MacMillan is a commentator in the media.
In this book, MacMillan traces the theory of German victimization back to arguments first made by John Maynard Keynes at the time of the Paris peacemaking process. The Western powers, according to Keynes, placed such a crushing financial burden on Germany that the defeated state and its people were doomed to failure. Yet as MacMillan points out, Germany ended up paying a fraction of what had been required, and all payments were suspended as early as 1932.
The Treaty of Versailles was never vigorously enforced, and Germany had more ability to wiggle out of obligations then has historically been espoused. But perhaps most significantly, the catastrophic intervening depression between the two wars set much of the world into an economic tailspin. In summary, it is an excellent book on the personalities, negotiations, behind the scenes intrigues and tragic long-term ramifications of the Treaty of Versailles.
