Book Summary:

An Economist Best Book of the Year “Sweeping . . . an ambitious synthesis . . . [Evans] writes with admirable narrative power and possesses a wonderful eye for local color . . . Fascinating.”—Stephen Schuker, The Wall Street Journal From the bestselling author of The Third Reich at War, a masterly account of Europe in the age of its global hegemony; the latest volume in the Penguin History of Europe series Richard J. Evans, bestselling historian of Nazi Germany, returns with a monumental new addition to the acclaimed Penguin History of Europe series, covering the period from the fall of Napoleon to the outbreak of World War I. Evans’s gripping narrative ranges across a century of social and national conflicts, from the revolutions of 1830 and 1848 to the unification of both Germany and Italy, from the Russo-Turkish wars to the Balkan upheavals that brought this era of relative peace and growing prosperity to an end. Among the great themes it discusses are the decline of religious belief and the rise of secular science and medicine, the journey of art, music, and literature from Romanticism to Modernism, the replacement of old-regime punishments by the modern prison, the end of aristocratic domination and the emergence of industrial society, and the dramatic struggle of feminists for women’s equality and emancipation. Uniting the era’s broad-ranging transformations was the pursuit of power in all segments of life, from the banker striving for economic power to the serf seeking to escape the power of his landlord, from the engineer asserting society’s power over the environment to the psychiatrist attempting to exert science’s power over human nature itself. The first single-volume history of the century, this comprehensive and sweeping account gives the reader a magnificently human picture of Europe in the age when it dominated the rest of the globe.

Book Summary:

The African dictator - a tyrant and an embezzler, or was he a visionary, a martyr? Eyes on the Prize - The Pursuit of Power in Africa is the story of 20 African leaders. Their political careers are, in many ways, the story of modern Africa. For many, tyranny and misrule are about as African as endemic poverty and wildlife . It is a persistent question: just why is Africa so poor? There is, of course, no clear answer; but the question itself is rather telling: it shows how global public opinion is both frustrated with Africa's performance and obsessed with its own progress. This is exactly how African politicians throughout the 20th century felt: frustrated that their continent was being held back and obsessed with the call to forge a brighter future for it. Along the way came the perils of Cold War politics and disaster economics. We may scoff at some of these fabulously corrupt rulers and cringe at their unchecked cruelty - but they got only as far as they were allowed and encouraged to. So who were the enablers? And who, ultimately, paid the price?

Book Summary:

"This book aims to introduce the general reader to these celebrated documents and to draw from them a political and social portrait of Europe in the age of Philip II as it was seen and understood by some of the period's most skilled and experienced observers. It is, then, a kind of reconstruction by means of selection and abridgment, an epitome, a distillation of the ambassadors' understanding of their world. The Venetian ambassadors were intrested chiefly in the way power was held and used by the great European monarchies and empires; the pursuit of power therefore looms large in this reconstruction of the way the ambassadors viewed Europe in their time." [Introduction].
