His next book, Metternich's Diplomacy at Its Zenith, 1920-1823 (University of Texas Press, 1962), won the Walter Prescott Webb Memorial Prize from the University of Texas. His third book, Austria, Great Britain, and the Crimean War: The Destruction of the European Concert (Cornell University Press, 1972), was described as the most important American contribution to European diplomatic history of its decade. His most recent book is The Transformation of European Politics, 1763-1848 (Clarendon Press, 1994), and was a History Book Club Selection. Dr. Schroeder has won senior fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Council of Learned Societies; has been a Fulbright Scholar, a fellow of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars; a visiting fellow at Merton College, Oxford; and a Peace Fellow at the US Institute of Peace.
