Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Formidable ... one of the most impressive and stimulating studies of the period ever published (Max Hastings Sunday Times)

Easily the best book ever written on the subject ... A work of rare beauty that combines meticulous research with sensitive analysis and elegant prose. The enormous weight of its quality inspires amazement and awe ... Academics should take note: Good history can still be a good story (Washington Post)

A lovingly researched work of the highest scholarship. It is hard to believe we will ever see a better narrative of what was perhaps the biggest collective blunder in the history of international relations (Niall Ferguson)

[Reading The Sleepwalkers], it is as if a light had been turned on a half-darkened stage of shadowy characters cursing among themselves without reason ... [Clark] demolishes the standard view ... The brilliance of Clark's far-reaching history is that we are able to discern how the past was genuinely prologue ... In conception, steely scholarship and piercing insights, his book is a masterpiece (Harold Evans New York Times Book Review)

Impeccably researched, provocatively argued and elegantly written ... a model of scholarship (Sunday Times Books of the Year)

Superb ... effectively consigns the old historical consensus to the bin ... It's not often that one has the privilege of reading a book that reforges our understanding of one of the seminal events of world history (Mail Online)

A monumental new volume ... Revelatory, even revolutionary ... Clark has done a masterful job explaining the inexplicable (Boston Globe)

Superb ... One of the great mysteries of history is how Europe's great powers could have stumbled into World War I ... This is the single best book I have read on this important topic (Fareed Zakaria)

A meticulously researched, superbly organized, and handsomely written account (Military History)

Clark is a masterly historian ... His account vividly reconstructs key decision points while deftly sketching the context driving them ... A magisterial work (Wall Street Journal)

This compelling examination of the causes of World War I deserves to become the new standard one-volume account of that contentious subject (Foreign Affairs)

A brilliant contribution (Times Higher Education)

Clark is fully alive to the challenges of the subject ... He provides vivid portraits of leading figures ... [He] also gives a rich sense of what contemporaries believed was at stake in the crises leading up to the war (Irish Times)

In recent decades, many analysts had tended to put most blame for the disaster [of the First World War] on Germany. Clark strongly renews an older interpretation which sees the statesmen of many countries as blundering blindly together into war (Stephen Howe Independent BOOKS OF THE YEAR)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The pacy, sensitive and formidably argued history of the causes of the First World War, from acclaimed historian and author Christopher Clark



SUNDAY TIMES and INDEPENDENT BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2012



The moments that it took Gavrilo Princip to step forward to the stalled car and shoot dead Franz Ferdinand and his wife were perhaps the most fateful of the modern era. An act of terrorism of staggering efficiency, it fulfilled its every aim: it would liberate Bosnia from Habsburg rule and it created a powerful new Serbia, but it also brought down four great empires, killed millions of men and destroyed a civilization. What made a seemingly prosperous and complacent Europe so vulnerable to the impact of this assassination?



In The Sleepwalkers Christopher Clark retells the story of the outbreak of the First World War and its causes. Above all, it shows how the failure to understand the seriousness of the chaotic, near genocidal fighting in the Balkans would drag Europe into catastrophe.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The Sleepwalkers:How Europe Went to War in 1914 18 février 2014
Par Margot
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Ce livre est une description approfondie des causes multiples du déclenchement de la Première Guerre Mondiale. Les nombreux politiciens impliqués dans cet imbroglio à échelle internationale ne pouvaient se fier entièrement à leurs homologues étrangers. Les diverses "Ententes" (cordiales ou non) européennes masquaient les vraies intentions et craintes des gouvernements concernés à tel point que au fil de quelques mois l'assassinat de l'héritier de l'Empire Austro-Hongrois en Bosnie Herzégovine se transforma d'incident local en motif de guerre à échelle européenne.
L'auteur de garde bien d'inculper un gouvernement plutôt qu'un autre d'où une approche bien différente de celle souvent adoptée d'une Allemagne "agresseur" et cause majeure de ce cataclysme effroyable.

How a bunch of around 30 egotic persons, each enclosed in his own office, started the worst human made catastrophe in history. How they have eluded their responsabilities through the largest history falsification. How first world war started a chain reaction of catastrophes still rolling today.

A masterpiece of research and presentation. Chris Clark is able to tell a fascinating story, but at no point is there a trace of doubt that the facts could not be true and rather fiction.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 livre étonnant 7 août 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Ce livre déroute véritablement le lecteur. Basé sur un documentation abondante, l'auteur montre de façon très convaincante que
personne ne voulait véritablement cette guerre. On peut en conclure qu'un manque de procédures rigoureuses et une mauvaise perception des intentions des partenaires de l'époque ont conduit à la tragédie. D'où le titre de l'ouvrage.

Par Marounov
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Very detailed account of the events and circumstances that led to the WW1, well-written and breathtaking. The author's hypothesis - the occurrence of the war due to a sum of bad beliefs, coordination failures and prevailing uncertainty - is plausible and his arguments convincing.

Je ne suis pas historien, mais ce livre me semble très intéressant. Il est très bien documenté et se lit plutôt facilement.
Un grand bémol : l'annonce indique qu'il s'agit d'une édition reliée alors que le livre est thermocollé ! La qualité est donc bien inférieure à celle attendue !
