Continuing the story of Europe in the nineteenth century, we see how Bismarck in his later years sought to maintain a balance of power and how his successors, and Kaiser Wilhelm II, upset this through policies of naval and colonial expansion among other things. We also consider how France’s desire for “revenge” on Prussia, Russian and Austrian uncertainties and conflicting nationalisms in the Balkans contributed to bring about the cataclysm of 1914-18.

Tutor – John Stevens
A lawyer by profession until my retirement in 2013, I have a lifelong interest in history and an enthusiasm to communicate and share this interest by both the spoken and written word.
My interests are wide and include in particular the Stuart era in Britain and nineteenth century English and European political history.
I have also published work, and lectured on, aspects of Bristol history in the period 1800-1850.
