* peace talks after the Korean War
* the Paris Peace Accords of 1973.

Editorial Reviews

The Vienna Congress of 1818, the Treaty of Versailles, the peace settlements of the Second World War, the peace talks after the Korean war, and the Paris Peace Accords of 1973 are among the post-war peace settlements of the 19th and 20th centuries that Towle (international relations, U. of Cambridge) analyzes. He finds them to be of intrinsic historical importance for revealing how the development of democracy, nationalism, and secularization impacted the process of peacemaking. Before 1789, he says, peace treaties did not contain provisions about changing the loser's government, nor the self-determination of populations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
