From award-winning historian Mark Mazower, Dark Continent: Europes Twentieth Century retells the story of a century of division, charting the struggles of rival ideologies to create a new world order for mankind. The end of the First World War saw old empires swept away and the opportunity to build a better society from the ruins. Yet the result was division and bloodshed on an unprecedented scale, as liberal democracy, communism and fascism struggled against one another for mastery of the world. Dark Continent radically overturns the myth of Europe as a safe haven of democracy to redefine our view of the twentieth century. Original, thought-provoking, iconoclastic. (Frank McLynn, Irish Times). Fascinating and forceful. (Martin Gilbert, Literary Review). Mazower leaves us, in this wonderful book, with an account of our century that anyone who takes an interest in Europes present and future will enlarge their mind by reading. (John Keegan, Daily Telegraph). There are few who can walk with A.J.P. Taylor. One is Mark Mazower ...a tour de force. (Alex Danchev, TLS). Combines narrative verve with wise and humane analysis.
