The Fall of the Dynasties: The Collapse of the Old Order, 1905-1922 is remarkable account of the early twentieth century that uncovers the origins of the First World War as well as explaining how European power was dramatically different in 1922 to what it had been in 1905. In the aftermath of World War One four of the most powerful royal families had been deposed and the sprawling empires that they had once ruled over lay in tatters. In this fascinating account of the period from 1905 through to 1922 Taylor examines how these opulent dynasts existed upon a tightrope of power, where they were increasingly concerned with petty diplomatic squabbles between themselves and ignored the rebellious spirits of their subjects.
