From the Treaty of Paris to the Treaty of Berlin
The Franco-Prussian War was a breakdown of the Concert of Europe which had failed to prevent its outbreak, had no part in its settlement, and no say in the final incorporation of Rome into the Italian state. But, as indicated before,1 it was otherwise in the case of Eastern affairs. The Near Eastern Question, as there have been a number of occasions to see, provided the most permanent ground for the concerted action of Europe. This situation was the result of the Powers’ persistent failure to agree on the consequences of the demise of the Sick Man, whom instead they collectively kept alive.
