Amazon rating: 5.0 “It provides a detailed but comprehensible account of the Westphalia negotiations” (Journal of Modern History)
“Here is everything one might want to know about the Peace of Westphalia” (Choice)
If you need to know something about one particular aspect of the peace — a country, an issue, an ambassador, or something general such as “public” or “newspapers” — this is a good place to look.
Amazon rating: 4.5. “[a]n indispensable aid to anglophone scholars” (International History Review)
More detailed than the other two books listed here. It is especially useful for its discussion of military campaigns and their relation to the negotiations.
