Description
(Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and one of the New York Times Book Review's Ten Best Books of 2005) Almost a decade in the making, Tony Judt's singular portrait of Europe in the six decades following World War II is that rare thing, a brilliant historical synthesis and a page-turning narrative, "acclaimed by historians as one of the best works on the subject" (BBC).

"As [Tony] Judt movingly draws it, the picture of Europe at the end of World War II is pitiful almost beyond bearing. Some 36.5 million Europeans are reckoned to have died between 1939 and 1945 because of the war. Tens of millions more were uprooted by Hitler and Stalin. In the immediate aftermath of Germany's defeat, the continent was scarred with violent retribution, purges and outbreaks of what in some places—like Greece and Yugoslavia—amounted to civil war. As Judt notes, the war in Europe did not really end in 1945 at all. Neither did the persecution of Jews end with the closing of the death camps."—NYTimes

"Judt is an astute thinker and polished writer who brings extensive cultural knowledge about film, music, and literature to bear on his daunting subjects: the Holocaust, the Stalinized East, the tide-changing 1960s, the implosion of the Iron Curtain, the policies of the European Union, and the new European way of life. Some critics attribute his clear-headed approach to almost two decades in America, where he founded New York University's Remarque Institute 'to support and promote the study and discussion of Europe.' Trans-Atlantic biases and assumptions aside, it's clear that Judt has written the book on Europe, for the moment at least."—Bookmarks Magazine
