Summary

Summary

A New York Times bestseller

Recipient of the 2003 Arthur Ross Book Award Silver Medal

Winner of the Samuel Johnson Prize, renowned historian Margaret MacMillan's best-selling Paris 1919 is the story of six remarkable months that changed the world. At the close of WWI, between January and July of 1919, delegates from around the world converged on Paris under the auspices of peace. New countries were created, old empires were dissolved, and for six months, Paris was the center of the world. Bringing to vivid life the individuals who participated in the great Peace Conference--including Woodrow Wilson, Winston Churchill, Lawrence of Arabia, and Ho Chi Minh--Paris 1919 is a landmark work of narrative history.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The history of the 1919 Paris peace talks following World War I is a blueprint of the political and social upheavals bedeviling the planet nowA wealth of colorful detail and a concentration on the strange characters many of these statesmen were keep [MacMillan’s] narrative lively.” New York Times Book Review
“Beautifully written, full of judgment and wisdom, Paris 1919 is a pleasure to read and vibrates with the passions of the early twentieth century and of ours.” San Francisco Chronicle
“For anyone interested in knowing how historic mistakes can morph into later historic problems, this brilliant book is a must-read.” Chicago Tribune
“MacMillan’s book reminds us of the main lesson learned at such a high cost in Paris in 1919: Peace is not something that can be imposed at the conference table. It can grow only from the hearts of people.” Los Angeles Times
