Genre/Form: History: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Steed, Henry Wickham, Antecedents of post-war Europe. London, Oxford University Press. A magisterial and acclaimed history of post-war Europe, from Germany to Poland, from Western Europe to Eastern Europe, selected as one of New York Times Ten Best Books of the Year.

Europe in was drained. Much of the continent was devastated by war, mass slaughter, bombing and chaos/5(). Postwar: A History of Europe Since is a non-fiction book written by British historian and scholar Tony Judt who specialised in European book examines six decades of European history from the end of World War II in up to The book won considerable praise for its breadth and comprehensive approach.

The New York Times Book Review listed it as one of the ten Author: Tony Judt. As Tony Judt shows in Postwar, this sense of self-satisfaction was at least partly based on false consciousness. The Second World War left Europe divided. The half of it that ended up under Soviet.

Savage Continent is the story of post–war Europe, from the close of the war right to the establishment of an uneasy stability at the end of the s. Based principally on primary sources from a dozen countries, Savage Continent is the chronicle of a world gone mad, the standard history of post–World War II Europe for years to come/5(20).

Judt’s book is a comprehensive history of the whole of Europe from almost up to the present day. What makes it so good is not only the scholarship that shines on every page but also his wonderful writing style and his ability to take difficult and complicated issues and summarise them in a way that is easily understandable.

Tony Judt's 'Postwar' makes one lament the overuse of the word 'groundbreaking.' It is an unprecedented accomplishment; the first truly European history of contemporary Europe, from Lisbon to Leningrad, based on research in six languages, covering thirty-four countries across sixty years in a single integrated narrative, using a great deal of material from newly available sources/5(16).

The chapters therefore focus on the role played by international institutions - the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the European Coal and Steel Community, the European Payments Union, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade - and weigh the relative importance of domestic and international factors in Europe's postwar recovery.

Europe in was drained. Much of the continent was devastated by /5(). This well-respected text provides a lively, comprehensive, and authoritative account of the emergence and evolution of the European Union from the aftermath of the Second World War to the uncertainties of the present era.

It explains the forces, events, and individuals that have shaped one of the most unusual and controversial political entities in history.

World War I brought about the end of the centuries-old monarchies and empires of Europe and the reorganisation of European borders and sovereignties. Post-war treaties led to the formation of an independent nation-state of Poland, the dissolution of Austria-Hungary and the formation of Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia.

Keith Lowe is widely recognized as a leading authority on the Second World War. He is the author of Inferno: The Devastation of Hamburg, and Savage Continent, which was a Sunday Times top ten bestseller and won the PEN Hessell-Tiltman Prize.

He has spoken often on television and radio, both in Britain and the United States, and his books have been translated into 20 languages/5(). The decades immediately after the second world war must have felt like a strange time to be alive. The French economist Jean Fourastié called them “les trente glorieuses”, the 30 glorious years of growth, reconstruction and cultural flourishing that brought France back to the world stage.

The post war world was not a tapestry so much as a tangled knot of yarn. Untangling the mess was the job of the victorious powers after that bloodiest war in history to date.

Sorting out things among the rubble was going to be nearly as ugly as the war itself/5. Germany (jûr´mənē), Ger.
