What a thoughtful, delightful book. We go from one end of Europe to the other, traveling in time and space. It's like a tour of Europe with a beloved history professor and, therefore, it's a "must read" for Americans who want to understand the current realities of Europe. Geert Mak is foremost a journalist, and it shows in the details he lovingly captures in the book.
