Geert Mak spent the year 1999 criss-crossing the continent, tracing the history of Europe from Verdun to Berlin, St Petersburg to Auschwitz, Kiev to Srebrenica. He set off in search of evidence and witnesses, looking to define the condition of Europe at the verge of a new millennium. The result is mesmerising: as a sharp-eyed journalist and a hugely imaginative historian, Mak makes IN EUROPE a dazzling account of that journey, full of diaries, newspaper reports and memoirs, and the voices of prominent figures and unknown players; from the grandson of Kaiser Wilhelm II to Adriana Warno in Poland, with her holiday job at the gates of the camp at Birkenau. Mak combines the larger story of twentieth-century Europe with details that suddenly give it a face, a taste and a smell. In Europe is a masterpiece; it reads like the epic novel of the continent's most extraordinary century.

Geert Mak is a journalist and historian, and is one of Holland's bestselling writers. His books include Amsterdam, In Europe and Jorwerd.
Fascinating, informative, sometimes exhilarating, often painful, and quite impossible to summarise... This is a splendidly panoramic picture of our common European home, a book to read through and then to dip into frequently... I thoroughly recommend his book Allan Massie Literary Review
A spellbinding history of 20th-century Europe that has the scope, pace and same capacity to delight as that of any epic novel.
