With Europe: A History, University of London professor Norman Davies has undertaken the near impossible: a synthetic one-volume overview of Europe from prehistory through the present. Remarkably, he has succeeded. Europe: A History is a conventional narrative, proceeding forward in time at a gradually decelerating pace. (The beginning covers millions of years of prehistory, while the final chapter discusses the 46 years between World War II and the book's publication.) But Davies's writing--vigorous, incisive, and confidently knowledgeable--carries the reader along, while the steady sweep of the main narrative is broken up by "capsules," boxed passages examining particular places, customs, or issues that cut across chronological lines. Davies, who has written two books on Polish history, also gives the eastern part of Europe its due coverage, unlike many of his predecessors, and manages to include commoners and the persecuted or ignored in his story along with the mighty and the royal. Europe: A History won't please everybody, but it's a highly intelligent, superbly readable overview that is certain to become a standard text. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

Pressestimmen

"Books of real quality and importance are rare. Norman Davies's history of Europe is one of them. It is a brilliant achievement, written with intelligence, lucidity and a breathtaking width of knowledge... This is a book everyone should read" (A. C. Grayling Financial Times)

"A noble monument of scholarship, and all the more noble because it is so full of surprise and feeling... There are superb assessments of vastly daunting subjects" (Jan Morris Independent)

"Monumental, authoritative... A book for enquiring minds of all ages, it will answer hundreds of enquires and provoke thousands more" (Noel Malcolm Sunday Telegraph)

"No history of Europe in the English language has been so even-handed in its treatment of east and west... Strong characterisation, vivid detail, trenchant opinions, cogent anaylsis all make this tremendous reading" (Times Literary Supplement) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
For anyone to write a book on a topic as sweeping as the history of Europe is bound to be a monumentally daunting task. To write such a history that attempts to be balanced and inclusive is even more difficult. Davies' book is the best European history that I have come across, and I can't see how one could write a better history without covering multiple volumes or including multiple authors.
There are several features of Davies' book that, to me, make it stand out from other histories of Europe. First of all, he begins with, if you will, a "history of European history", describing how the subject has been viewed and written about in the past. He describes how various historical schools of thought have come and gone over the years, thus describing the larger context into which he introduces his history. Davies attempts to write his history without some of the biases that he believes exist in many previous works.
Secondly, Davies tells the story of Europe along several threads, understanding that "European" history is really several parallel and interacting histories of peoples, nations, states, etc. It is only relatively recently that one can really say that there has been a coherent and truly "European" history.
Thirdly, eastern Europe is finally given some due attention. Too many European histories have tended to dwell on northern and/or western parts of the continent. Only someone such as Davies, whose specialty is Polish history, could adequately include the more neglected parts of Europe. I especially liked his telling of the Soviet liberation of Warsaw during the last years of WW2 as contrasted with the Allied liberation of Paris at about the same time. It was definitely an eye-opener.

Norman Davies has produced a first-rate history of Europe, the most outstanding characteristic of which is its very inclusiveness. The focus of most traditional histories of Europe lies mainly on the western nations of Europe - France, Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain. Davies, the author of several works on the history of Poland, has managed to create an historical overview of Europe that encompasses all the nation of this most heterogenous of regions.
While one may quibble on fine detail (as a Dane, I naturally looked for fault in the material on Denmark - and found a few), the errors remain trifling and the work itself falls into the category of "must-read" history. The sheer volume of data one must wade through to write convincingly on European history ensures that no work of this character will ever meet with the approval of all readers, however, even if one does not agree with Davies on all points, this book is a solid achievement, massive and well-crafted.
I heartily recommend this history of Europe.

Norman Davies is clearly confident that his view of history in general and history of Europe in particular is more interesting and probably more valid than many others who have approached these topics. I surmise that his view of history is that it is an argument to be waged, about the larger patterns and the more subtle threads, rather than a simple telling of the episodes and icons which later political entities have enshrined into myths that serve the ends of governance. On this score, Davies would not be unique. But in telling the history of Europe with this approach, he has undertaken a topic of so enormous a scope such that the scholarship would have to be breathtakingly manifest and the arguement would have to be breathtakingly persistant and persuasive. And he pulls it off. What emerges is a wonderfully constructed version of European history that seems connected across time and space. I found myself both stimalated and inspired.

The idea of a one-volume history of Europe is thought of as a unheard of among academic circles. However, it is only unheard of among those who have not seen this book. It is an amazing broad sweep of the themes of western civilization. Granted, it doesn't contain EVERYTHING, but its still an invaluble source for anyone researching European history. The sidebars are helpful as well. It is also printed very nicely, in a very contemporaty typeface that is easy to read. NO EYE STRAIN! Is this an academic reference that does not cause eye strain? YES. College students, by this, you'll need it. Professors, buy this, for 27 dollars you can't go wrong.

Von Ein Kunde am 29. Juli 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I acquired this book with no knowledge of European History. I read almost all of it before finally giving up. I would not recommend this book for those with no background in the subject. I believe the author's expertise impedes his ability to communicate the subject to the novice. The level of detail seemed to overwhelm and confuse the big picture. As a novice, I had a hard time sorting out salient facts and assembling them to create a coherent overview of the subject. I have since read some other books that were vastly superior in effectively communicating the basics of the subject.
If you have a degree in History this book may be fulfilling. If you are just trying to get a general handle on the topic try J.M. Roberts "History of Europe" instead. Also check out "A History of the Middle Ages" by Joseph Dahmus
