Dark Continent : Europe's Twentieth Century
This history of 20th-century Europe expands the frontiers of Europe outwards to include not only Portugal and Ireland, but also Eastern Europe and the Balkans. It overturns the conventional myth of Europe as the safe haven of democracy and liberal values and shows how fragile they are.
