The Art of Peacemaking

István Bibó

Yale University Press

This chapter addresses the balance of peace and power in Europe. It discusses, in general, the jerks and shocks that accompanied the progress of the greatest enterprise of Western mankind, democracy. It also describes the establishment of modern nation-states. It then looks at German hysteria, which disrupted the balance of power in Europe after 1914, and examines the hysterias of the countries around Germany (Italy, France, Hungary, Bohemia, and Poland). It explores how the interaction of these hysterias brought about the collapse of the European balance of power and the outbreak of future crises.

Keywords:   peace, power, Europe, democracy, German hysteria, Italy, France, Hungary, Bohemia, Poland
