Histoire Diplomatique De 1919 à Nos Jours
Histoire Diplomatique De 1919 à Nos Jours
By J.-B. Duroselle
Dalloz, 1953, 744 pp.

Though designed as a manual this history of the period from 1919 to 1951 is a solid and useful synthesis. While confining itself to the traditional limits of diplomatic history, and content to develop the narrative and to leave speculation to others, it is based on wide reading and acquaintance with the sources.
