Selected by Indie Booksellers for the December 2008 Indie Notables
“Philip Blom has written a grand and magisterial cultural history of prewar Europe in the early 20th century. Wonderfully detailed with telling anecdotes and provocative ideas in every chapter.”
-- Scott Kinberger, Books Inc., San Francisco, CA


The old order gives way to the new in a vast panoramic history of Europe on the brink of the Great War.
