Review

Praise for The Global Age:

"The sunnier, postwar tale frames The Global Age, the second volume of his expertly crafted history of modern Europe . . . he has produced an accessible scholarly synthesis, panoramic in scope and sound in judgment . . . The Global Age is a heavy but elegant book." -- Wall Street Journal

"The history of Europe over the last 70 years--as traced and explained brilliantly in Ian Kershaw's magisterial The Global Age: Europe, 1950-2017--should give at least some credence to the argument that things are not as bad as they seem." -- The New York Times Book Review

"Kershaw directs his considerable talents to the fall of the Berlin Wall, reunification of Germany, and the 'global exposure' of newly vulnerable Europe . . . this is a terrific roundup by a trusted historian, featuring an extensive bibliography for further reading." --Kirkus Reviews (starred)

". . .brilliant . . . Writing a 67-year history of a continent with more than 40 countries is a monumental task, and Kershaw has done so with unflagging narrative drive and fine prose." --Publishers Weekly (starred)

"Nearly 20 years after Francis Fukuyama proclaimed that the collapse of the Soviet Empire meant "the end of history," Kershaw shows in this capacious account of Europe since 1950 that history continues to gyrate and perplex . . . An ambitious and thought-provoking chronicle." --Booklist (starred)

"Likely to be the basic text on European history for some time. It's a plus that it's well written and tells a fascinating a tale." --Library Journal (starred)

Praise for To Hell and Back:

"Magisterial. . . . Kershaw handles the dark materials of his story with extraordinary grace, weaving his themes together with admirable analytical clarity. . . . Kershaw's account is illuminating precisely because it tightens the focus of the analysis, allowing us to see the continent as a diagram of contending forces, like the storm fronts and wind barbs on a weather map."--Christopher Clark, The New York Review of Books

"Remarkable and eminently readable. . . . Kershaw's book will deliver a jolt to American readers."--The Boston Globe

"Mr. Kershaw has written a fair-minded, deeply researched and highly readable book that will serve as the first point of departure for anyone wishing to understand Europe's most terrible decades."--The Wall Street Journal

"Magisterial."--The Economist
