A History In Fragments: Europe in the Twentieth Century

 
9780349112695: A History In Fragments: Europe in the Twentieth Century

The problem with the history of twentieth-century Europe is that everyone thinks they know it. The great stories of the century - the two world wars, the rise and fall of Nazism and communism, female emancipation - seem self-evidently important. But behind the grand narratives, the politics and the ideologies, lies another history: the history of forces that shaped the lives of individual Europeans.

That is the thrust of Richard Vinen's magisterial survey of this uniquely destructive and creative century. It argues that there is no single history that encompasses the experience of all Europeans, but rather a multiplicity of different, partially interlocking, histories. Some of these histories are told here in a book which seeks to root the generalisations of large-scale analysis in the concrete - and sometimes incongruous - details of individual lives. Challenging, informing and revealing, this is history writing at its finest.

Book Description:

Fascinating and immensely readable...often sums up key moments in soundbite phrases that imprint themselves beautifully on the memory. ( GLASGOW SUNDAY HERALD)

Beautifully written, and can be confidently recommended to anyone seeking to make sense of our recent history. ( DAILY TELEGRAPH)

A master of telling fact and illuminating insight, Vinen somehow manages to be both opinionated and objective. ( Andrew Roberts)

I admired [A HISTORY IN FRAGMENTS] very much indeed. It struck me as a tour de force, as impressive in its collation of little-known facts as in its presentation of fresh and always intelligent interpretation. ( Anthony Howard)

Book Description:

* A significant contribution to our understanding of how politics affects real people, and a

brilliant blend of sweeping narrative and detailed analysis: this is a major and potentially prize-winning work
