HISTORY."A work of almost Toynbeean sweep... When a scholar as careful and

learned as Mr. Kennedy is prompted by contemporary issues to reexamine the great

processes of the past, the result can only be an enhancement of our historical

understanding.... When the study is written as simply and attractively as this work is,

its publication may have a great and beneficient impact. It is to be hoped that Mr.

Kennedy's will have one, at a potentially decisive moment in America's

history."Michael Howard, The New York Times Book Review"Important, learned, and

lucid... Paul Kennedy's great achievement is that he makes us see our current

international problems against a background of empires that have gone under

because they were unaible to sustain the material cost of greatness; and he does so

in a universal historical perspective of which Ranke would surely have

approved."James Joll, The New York Review of Books"His strategic-economic

approach provides him with the context for a shapely narrative....Professor Kennedy

not only exploits his framework eloquently, he also makes use of it to dig deeper and

explore the historical contexts in which some 'power centers' prospered....But the

most commanding purpose of his project...is the lesson he draws from 15 centuries of

statecraft to apply to the present scene....[The book's] final section is for everyone

concerned with the contemporary political scene."Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The
