Editorial Reviews


"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."

The Economist

‘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. ‘

Joel Mokyr, EH.NET

From the Back Cover

In the early twentieth century brutal nation-states such as Mussolini¿s Italy, Stalin¿s Russia and Hitler¿s Germany came to the fore and the twin evils of dictatorship and war ensured the rapid destruction of liberal democracy, market economics and the international order. In contrast, the latter half was concerned with re-thinking and re-shaping these core values which still guide political life after the millennium.

Harold James analyses the failures and achievements of the twentieth century.

The demands of the post-war period, namely the place of Europe in a wider international order are also examined. Features include:

  • Boxed Case Studies
  • Maps
  • Plates
  • Figures
  • Short Biographies
  • Chronologies
  • Statistical Appendix

James lucidly argues that European societies today are dominated by the trend to converge around the principles of democracy, market economics and international integration. He shows that the stability brought by the gradual unwinding of the nation-state and the end of left-right politics have created a Europe ¿reborn¿.

Harold James is Professor of History at Princeton University. He is the author of The End of Globalization; Lessons from the Great Depression and The German Slump; Politics and Economics 1924-1936.

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more

Much more A than The ... seems to be written more to impress knowledgeable colleagues than to provide an instructional and well-structured introduction.
