Overview

Marketplace Product

Europe has for two millennia been a remarkably successful continent. In this dazzling new history, bestselling author Simon Jenkins tells the story of its evolution from a battlefield of warring tribes to peace, wealth and freedom – a story that twists and turns from Greece and Rome, through the Middle Ages, Reformation and French Revolution, to the two World Wars and the present day.

Jenkins embraces individuals from Julius Caesar and Joan of Arc, to Wellington and Angela Merkel, as well as cultural figures from Aristotle to Shakespeare and Picasso. Tracing themes down the ages, from youthful ambition and religious conflict to geographical constraints and invasion, he brings together the key forces and dominant periods into one chronological narrative – all with his usual insight, colour and authority.

Despite the importance of Europe’s politics, economy and culture, there has not been – until now – a concise book to tell this story. Covering the key events, eras and individuals, Jenkins’ portrait of the continent could not be more timely – or more masterful.
