520    This is a major biography of Clemens von Metternich (1773-
       1859), perhaps the most important European politician of 
       the first half of the nineteenth century. Metternich held 
       the highest civilian posts in the Austrian Empire without 
       interruption from 1809 to 1848, helped determine the shape
       of post-Napoleonic Europe, and established the system of 
       international congresses (the Metternich system) that 
       dominated international relations up to 1918 and set a 
       precedent for the League of Nations and the United 
       Nations. His influence on international affairs in the 
       first half of the century was so profound that the period 
       is sometimes called the Age of Metternich. He is usually 
       considered a stubborn conservative and an enemy of 
       liberalism and nationalism, which then went hand in hand. 
       For many, he represents everything that the 
       revolutionaries of 1848 opposed. In this biography, 
       Wolfram Siemann argues that the conventional view of 
       Metternich is wrong. He writes that Metternich idealized 
       Britain's liberal constitution and aimed to make as much 
       room as possible for liberalism and nationalism as was 
       consistent with his overarching aim: the preservation of 
       peace in Europe, a commitment arising from his horror at 
       the death and destruction of the Revolutionary and 
       Napoleonic Wars. Drawing on previously unopened archives 
       belonging to the Metternich family, Siemann also presents 
       in full his subject's active personal and social life. 
       Metternich had many mistresses, one of them Napoleon's 
       sister, and counted almost everybody with power in Europe 
       as a friend or enemy.--|cProvided by publisher
