Reviews

"Most impressive... Postwar, Tony Judt's magnificent history of Europe after The Second World War, covers vast tracts of ground with extraordinary skill, weaving together the stories of West and East in a single, compelling narrative" * Evening Standard, 'Books of the Year' *
"Masterly and exhilarating... Judt has a fine eye for telling detail... This is a splendid book to which no review can do proper justice" -- Geoffrey Wheatcroft * Spectator *
"Truly superb - a magnificent achievement. It is hard to imagine how a better - and more readable - history of the emergence of today's Europe from the ashes of 1945 could ever be written; I can't think of another work on the latter half of the 20th century that comes close to matching it... All in all, a real masterpiece" -- Ian Kershaw, author of Hitler
"A superb work of synthesis, analysis and reflection" * Times Literary Supplement, 'Books of the Year' *
"With Postwar... Judt moves up into the ranks of the grand simplificateurs. He dares to expound the sum total of Europe since 1945 in a seamless narrative... This is history-writing with a human face, as well as with brainpower... It is most unlikely that Judt's achievement will be superseded soon" * Guardian *
