Almost a decade in the making, Postwar is a sweeping history of post WWII Europe from the renowned historian Tony Judt, Erich Maria Remarque Professor of European Studies at New York University and director and founder of the Remarque Institute. Drawing on research in six languages, Postwar is the first modern history that covers all of Europe, encompassing thirty-four nations and sixty years of political and social change. The New York Times Book Review chose Postwar as one of the Ten Best Books of the Year, enthusing, “A book that has the pace of a thriller and the scope of an encyclopedia? Brilliant.”
