  • René Albrecht-Carrié
Part of the Documentary History of Western Civilization book series (DHWC)


It was pointed out in the introduction to the preceding Topic that the period of the Second French Empire was one during which the chief foundations of the hitherto existing law of Europe, the settlement of 1815, underwent a substantial revision to the accompaniment of wars that involved all the major Powers of Europe at one time or another. Once these adjustments had been made, a new stability prevailed, or at least a period during which no two major Powers found themselves locked in open conflict.
