Appeared in Choice on 1989-01:
A sequel to the author's France and Her Eastern Allies, 1919-1925 (1962), this book is a carefully researched study of the evolving political, economic, and military relations between France, Poland, and Czechoslovakia in the decade following the Locarno Pacts. Wandycz treats the forces at work that led to the disintegration of the French eastern alliances. The book is not a study of the Little Entente. Rather, it documents the lack of cohesion in France's eastern alliances, the absence of solid economic bases from which a consolidation of those alliances could proceed, and the absence of a consistent and inspired French leadership as the elements in that process of disintegration. The book is admirable in its detail and exacting scholarship. It is essential to an understanding of the larger European issues of the interwar period, and of the complex tapestry of relations between Paris, Prague, and Warsaw in the critical decade from Locarno to the Rhineland Crisis. Upper-division undergraduates and above. -R. W. Heywood, University of Michigan--Flint
