Summary
The first truly European history of contemporary Europe, from Lisbon to Leningrad, based on research in six languages, covering 34 countries across 60 years, using a great deal of material from newly available sources. The book integrates international relations, domestic politics, ideas, social change, economic development, and culture--high and low--into a single grand narrative. Every country has its chance to play the lead, and although the big themes are handled--including the cold war, the love/hate relationship with America, cultural and economic malaise and rebirth, and the myth and reality of unification--none of them is allowed to overshadow the rich pageant that is the whole.--From publisher description
Summary
Covering 34 countries and 60 years of history, Tony Judt chronicles the rebuilding of Europe after the devastation and havoc of World War II. Here, Judt takes listeners through the Holocaust, Stalinism's spread through the eastern continent, the dramatic changes of the 1960s, and the fall of Communism
