Reviews

this is a provocative, well-argued, and very readable synthesis that surely will inspire more debate on how to make sense of the second half of Europes twentieth century. * Frank Biess, European History Quarterly * absorbing and provocative * John Connelly, American Historical Review * Compellingly written. * Internationale Spectator * A well-researched and academic volume. * Birmingham Jewish Recorder * ... a good historian must, on the basis of detailed knowledge and sound judgement, define and present the important issues, leaving "a lot of things" aside. The past six decades of Europe's history, full of complexities and transformations, imperatively need this sort of treatment, and they get it in Dan Stone's illuminating and stimulating book ... One of the book's admirable features is Stone's ability to devote serious attention, decade by decade, to both Eastern and Western Europe. * Times Higher Education * ...have no fear. Dan Stone is far too fine a historian to see the past as unlinear and neatly packaged. * Arne Westad, BBC History Magazine * Dan Stone,[is] one of the finest historians of Europe working in Britain today * Arne Westad, BBC History Magazine * Dan Stone has written the first serious history since Tony Judt of the continent after 1945 * Robert Gerwarth, Irish Times * ... the book's innovative take on the postwar period ... is thus a worthy companion to Tony Judt's magisterial Postwar (2005). Stone's emphasis on the centrality of memory politics presents a new way of thinking about the connections between disparate phenomena, along with a new set of tools for explaining Europe's troubled present * Central European History * A valuable contribution to the historiography of the post-war period. * H-Net *
