Israel Mauduit Bibliography

Considerations on the Present German War 1761
A famous pamphlet published in Dublin on the Seven Years War. According to Peter Langford, it “belongs with Swift’s Conduct of the Allies as one of the most influential tracts in the history of diplomacy and war. Mauduit argued that Hanover had never been at risk; it had only been attacked because France knew that Great Britain would defend it. ‘They always will go thither, as long as the English councils resolve to oppose them there.’ (A Polite and Commercial People: England 1727-1783, p. 347)
