Sleepwalking into war

The New York Times has a very interesting review of two books that are indispensable to our understanding of why war broke out in 1914: Christopher Clark's The Sleepwalkers: How Europe went to War in 1914 and Sean McKeekin's  July 1914: Countdown to War. I hope both books get the publicity they deserve in the run-up to the commemorations of the outbreak of the First World War.
