Publisher Description

The Vintage Classics Europeans series - with covers provided by textile design firm Wallace Sewell, these are must-have editions of European masterpieces, celebrating the warp and weft of a shared literary treasury.

In 1999, journalist and historian Geert Mak criss-crossed the continent in the simple yet monumental quest to trace European twentieth-century history as the world slipped into the twenty-first. In Europe is a dazzling account of that journey, and combines the larger story of Europe with intimate, vivid detail. It is also now a poignant reminder that the European project was then and is now a unprecedented experiment; that we still have 'a great deal to tell each other and a great deal to explain.'

TRANSLATED FROM THE DUTCH BY SAM GARRETT

'A wonderfully rich journey through time and space' Independent on Sunday

Review

An ingenious geographical-chronological structure... It's impossible not to get drawn into this book - Sunday Telegraph Part masterpiece... breathtaking invention -- Jan Morris The Times His genius as a historian is his instinct for human stories... At moments in this monumental work... Mak is the history teacher everyone should have had Financial Times A broader travelling history of the whole of Europe's 20th century Economist Fascinating, informative, sometimes exhilarating, often painful, and quite impossible to summarise... This is a splendidly panoramic picture of our common European home, a book to read through and then to dip into frequently... I thoroughly recommend his book -- Allan Massie Literary Review
