Review

Review of the Previous Edition:

"The general reader, after deep gulps of prose, will wonder why they were ever led to think that history is a dull subject. Stone's fellow professionals will only be able to take his narrative in small doses, needing frequent pauses to think, snort or wriggle with envy." The Spectator

'This is a facinating book, elegant, witty, original, informative and many-sided...The general reader, after deep gulps of prose, will wonder why they were ever led to think that history is a dull subject. His fellow professionals will only be able to take his narrative in small doses, needing frequent pauses to think, snort or wriggle with envy... There really cannot have been a teacher like Norman Stone for many years, and his readers will now jealously compete with his pupils for his time.' John Keeganm Spectator

Book Description

This book provides readers with an introduction to the complex era from 1878 to the end of World War I. The 40 years before 1914 were a period of extraordinary peace and prosperity but this world came to a dramatic end with the start of the First World War. Stone explores the political history of the period running up to the war, setting events in the context of social, economic and cultural changes. Norman Stone makes sense of this complex period of political and social change by exploring common European themes and establishing a political and international chronology for readers to follow. He reveals the individual character of the European countries, discussing the five Great Powers in essay rather than narrative form. He treats war and revolution in a separate section and concludes by considering the cultural developments of the period.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Stones, Eastern Front is a major marker in that theater and in this book he again lays a lot of top notch ground work. However I believe his heart lies east of the Vistula and this is where the book really shines.
