Synopses & Reviews
Norman Davies' seminal biography of a whole continent; "it brims with learning, crackles with common sense, coruscates with wit and abounds in good judgement." --Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, Sunday Times
From the Ice Age to the Cold War, from Reykjavik to the Volga, from Minos to Margaret Thatcher, Norman Davies here tells the entire story of Europe in a single volume. It is the most ambitious history of the continent ever undertaken.
Davies' epic was a massive seller for OUP in hardback last year. To tell the story of Europe in one single volume is no mean achievement and the plaudits earned by the author are a testimony to this. "A brilliant achievement, written with intelligence, lucidity and a breathtaking width of knowledge" "Financial Times".
