Behind the Diplomatic Curtain: Adolphe de Bourqueney and French Foreign Policy, 1816-1869
Because of his role in significant negotiations, his residence in French embassies in major European capitals, and his friendship with important diplomatic figures, Bourqueney is a worthy subject of an extended study. Historians of France as well as those interested in foreign affairs of several European countries might usefully consult this book. —Sylvia Neely, Penn State University
This work describes Bourqueney's career with persuasive examples because it draws on an unusually rich collection of family letters and diplomatic reports.The author uses this material to convey the complexities of Bourqueney's work. —Lloyd Kramer, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
