Finalist for the Pulitzer PrizeWinner of the Council on Foreign Relations Arthur Ross Book Award One of the New York Times' Ten Best Books of the Year Almost a decade in the making, this much-anticipated grand history of postwar Europe from one of the world's most esteemed historians and intellectuals is a singular achievement. Postwar is the first modern history that covers all of Europe, both east and west, drawing on research in six languages to sweep readers through thirty-four nations and sixty years of political and cultural change-all in one integrated, enthralling narrative. Both intellectually ambitious and compelling to read, thrilling in its scope and delightful in its small details, Postwar is a rare joy.

"Judt's massive, learned, brilliantly detailed account of Europe's recovery from the wreckage of World War II presents a whole continent in panorama even as it sets off detonations on almost every page." --The New York Times Book Review"Remarkable... The writing is vivid; the coverage-of little countries as well as of great ones-is virtually superhuman; and above all, the book is smart. Every page contains unexpected data, or a fresh observation, or a familar observation freshly turned." --Louis Menand, The New Yorker "Impressive . . . Mr. Judt writes with enormous authority."--The Wall Street Journal "Magisterial . . . It is, without a doubt, the most comprehensive, authoritative, and yes, readable postwar history." --The Boston Globe "Brave and remakable." -- The Washington Post "Brilliant . . . A book that has the pace of a thriller and the scope of an encyclopedia . . . A very considerable achievement." --The New York Review of Books "Not likely to be surpassed for many years. . . . This is history writing at its best." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) From the Publisher:
A magisterial history of post-war Europe, political, social and cultural, in the tradition of Norman Davies' Europe: A History and Niall Ferguson's Empire.
