Abstract:

"In Civilization and Barbarity in 20th-Century Europe eminent historian Gabriel Jackson deals with the political and cultural history of Europe during the past hundred years. It is not, however, a mere chronological survey concentrating on political and economic developments. Rather, the major aspects of those developments, and of international relations - both peaceful and warlike - are seen as the necessary background for the consideration of European culture, values, practical expectations, and the lifestyles available to, or imposed upon, the population as a whole." "In his discussion of its art, politics, and science, Jackson conveys the current significance, and the possible future, of a democratic and pluralistic Europe. Clarity of exposition makes the book ideal not only for scholars but for the lay reader as well."--Jacket.
