Ian Kershaw follows his magisterial history of Europe 1914-1949 To Hell and Back with this new volume which brings the postwar world into sharp relief. Starting with the divided Europe of the Cold War, overshadowed by the nuclear threat, this book charts economic revival, the disintegration of the Soviet bloc, the reunification of Germany and also the more recent challenges brought by accelerated globalisation. This is a wonderful and timely book that makes us reconsider Europe’s recent history and what it means to be European today.
