Norman Davies' seminal biography of a whole continent; "it brims with learning, crackles with common sense, coruscates with wit and abounds in good judgement." --Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, Sunday Times
From the Ice Age to the Cold War, from Reykjavik to the Volga, from Minos to Margaret Thatcher, Norman Davies here tells the entire story of Europe in a single volume. It is the most ambitious history of the continent ever undertaken.

Finally Eastern Europe is back on the maps, so to speak. No longer is European history the histories of France, Germany, the UK, and Russia almost exclusively. Now we also read of Ukraine, Denmark, Poland, Hungary, and all the other countries of Europe.

A fantastic achievement. Mr. Davies stuffs thousands of years of European history into one massive volume in "Europe: A History." Its greatest accomplishment, however, is its inclusion of the history of Eastern Europe that the majority of popular European history books tend to exclude. If you need exposure to the workings of medieval Hungary more than the intricacies of (once again) feudal France, this is likely the text for you.
