This 229-page hardcover was published in 1985 by the Yale University Press. This is an ex-library edition, containing typical library stamps. Otherwise, this book appears to be read very little, if at all, and appears to be in like new condition internally. The very nice dustcover continues to be protected by a mylar covering. The hardcover appears to also be in great condition. The binding is like new. Overall, an outstanding conditioned used book.

This book certainly will become the new standard account of the subject, though it does not entirely supersede Samuel Flagg Bemis's The Diplomacy of the American Revolution (1957). Bemis gave more attention to such topics as neutral shipping, Newfoundland fishing, and western boundaries; Dull devotes more space to diplomatic events in Europe. In particular, Dull indicates how French fear of Russian and Austrian expansion at the expense of the Ottoman Empire was a factor in the final peace negotiations of the American Revolution. He also views Dutch and Spanish aid as more important for the American cause than did Bemis, and Dull's treatment of French foreign minister Vergennes is much more favorable. The book's many footnotes and its annotated bibliography provide a rich survey of research in the field. Specialists as well as students should profit from this work. Highly recommended for public and university libraries. Thomas J. Schaeper, History Dept., St. Bonaventure Univ., N.Y.
