    DescriptionFinalist for the Pulitzer Prize Winner of the Council on Foreign Relations Arthur Ross Book Award One of the "New York Times"'" "Ten Best Books of the Year Almost a decade in the making, this much-anticipated grand history of postwar Europe from one of the world's most esteemed historians and intellectuals is a singular achievement. "Postwar" is the first modern history that covers all of Europe, both east and west, drawing on research in six languages to sweep readers through thirty-four nations and sixty years of political and cultural change-all in one integrated, enthralling narrative. Both intellectually ambitious and compelling to read, thrilling in its scope and delightful in its small details, "Postwar" is a rare joy.

    Review quote
    ...brilliantly detailed account of Europe's recovery from the wreckage of World War II presents a whole continent in panorama. ("The New York Times Book Review")Remarkable... The writing is vivid; the coverage-of little countries as well as of great ones-is virtually superhuman. (Louis Menand, "The New Yorker")
