Originally published by D.C. Heath and Company in 1964, this volume emphasizes interpretation instead of narrative, thus offering an introduction to the problems of the war, but not the war itself. The editor challenges the adequacy of the traditional German-centered view of the international conflicts which took place between 1618 and 1648, the period of time from the outbreak of the Bohemian revolt to the Peace of Westphalia, which is commonly referred to as the Thirty Years' War. This volume examines that catastrophe from a wide variety of perspectives.
