The Outbreak of War in 1914 Revisited- Lecture at LSE on January 22nd

Professor Christopher Clark    A new free public lecture has been announced by the London School of Economics which i should probably attend.   I have never really understood how a single gunshot in the Balkans started a World War……

According to the LSE “Few episodes in the history of modern Europe have attracted such intense and lasting historical interest as the July Crisis of 1914. The chain of events that led to the outbreak of World War One still offers one of the most dramatic and intellectually enthralling narratives in modern history. Yet the size and sophistication of the existing secondary literature poses a challenge: how to generate fresh insights into a crisis that has preoccupied historians and generated controversy for nearly a century. This lecture revisits the crisis of 1914, reflects on trends in the recent and older writing on the outbreak of war and examines some new angles of approach.”
