From the Publisher"This is an outstanding book. It provides a clear and careful synthesis of the author's very wide reading, but it is also written with a distinctive tone and point of view that will force even well-informed readers to rethink some of their assumptions."
Richard Vinen, author of 'Europe: A History in Fragments'
"Harold James, an eminent Princeton historian, deals expertly with Europe's past century... [explanatory boxes] break up the author's elegant narrative with succinct accounts of the main political ideas... This is not history as seen from a well-mounted telescope; more as glimpsed in a rear view mirror."
‘brilliantly-written and richly-informed… James displays an enviable combination of factual knowledge that is both deep and broad and an economic intuition and social understanding that makes him look in corners others have missed. ‘
