NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 617pp. Trade Paperback. Walter Laquer's "Europe in Our Time- A History: 1945-1992" is a supremely authoritative text, detailing a period in European history (and world history) quite unlike any other. Europe was, to be blatantly honest, a mess after the Allies defeated the Germans and received their unconditional surrender. The problem was what to do after the end of the European War. From here, Laquer speaks of all the important developments that occured in Europe, in most countries, in a very interesting prose-like fashion. Key concepts and terms our all explained sufficiently, and this book is similar to a novel in that it will keep you up at night, turning page after page, swallowing the history of Europe after 1945. Highly recommended.

"An encyclopedic amount of information is analyzed with considerable wisdom and a felicitous style."—Simon Serfaty, Johns Hopkins Univ. Laqueur presents a fascinating overview of post-war Europe, providing detailed analyses that cover every major political development, economic and social trends, and cultural movements since 1945. "An excellent work destined to become a standard text for the 90s."— Library Journal .
