Product description


"It escapes from the stale paradigms of the Cold War, places the European Union in perspective, and has fresh and provocative things to say about every aspect that it touches." (Michael Howard Times Literary Supplement, 'Books of the Year')

"Judt's brilliant study of Europe after the Second World War is unlikely to be surpassed... Tony Judt has written the standard reference work on European post-war history." (Misha Glenny Irish Times)

"A masterly survey of how today's Europe rose from the ashes and exhaustion of 1945." (J. G. Ballard New Statesman, 'Books of the Year')

"For me, the most impressive books of the year were two weighty historical tomes. Postwar, Tony Judt's magnificent history of Europe after The Second World War, covers vast tracts of ground with extraordinary skill, weaving together the stories of West and East in a single, compelling narrative." (Dominic Sandbrook Evening Standard, 'Books of the Year')

"A superb work of synthesis, analysis and reflection." (Timothy Garton-Ash Times Literary Supplement, 'Books of the Year')

Book Description

A magisterial and acclaimed history of Europe in our time, by one of our leading historians.
