Europe: The Struggle for Supremacy, from 1453 to the Present

The Struggle for Supremacy, from 1453 to the Present

If there is a fundamental truth of geopolitics, it is this: whoever controls central Europe controls the entire continent, and whoever controls all of Europe can dominate the world. In this authoritative account of the past half millennium of European history, prizewinning historian Brendan Simms shows how the battle for mastery over the heart of the European continent has long shaped global affairs. Beginning in 1453, when the collapse of the Byzantine Empire laid Europe open to Ottoman incursion, Simms leads readers through the epic struggle for control of the European heartland--a fight that continues in the twenty-first century.
A commanding work of history by a renowned scholar, "Europe" integrates religion, politics, military strategy, and international relations to show how the modern world was forged in the crucible of Europe.

Zitat
"Wall Street Journal""Prodigious....If postmodern scholarship has Ranke spinning in his grave, Mr. Simms's book will give his weary soul some rest.... This is the history of Richelieu, Metternich and Kissinger, not of Luther, Newton and Beethoven. Such a summary may sound arid, but "Europe" is anything but. In fact, it draws the reader forward with its grand epic of shifting alliances, clashing armies and ambitious statecraft. Simms is a skilled writer with a rare gift for compressed analysis. His focus on the military and diplomatic arc of European history lends his book a strong narrative line and thematic coherence. Patterns emerge that might have remained buried in a more various survey." "The Economist""Brendan Simms's new history [is] especially timely. He has, in effect, dropped a big stone into the European pond and stood back to watch the ripples spread.... It is a compelling and provocative thesis.... This is sweeping history, told with verve and panache, and it is all the more refreshing for that." "Financial Times"""Europe" is a stimulating, impressive history that starts with the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople in 1453 and extends to the present day....An excellent read and its insights into the grand themes of European history are penetrating and lucidly argued." "The Telegraph""Brendan Simms is a historian of unusual range and ability.... His new book is nothing less than a history of Europe over the past 550 years.... Writing such a book is a colossally demanding task - the sort of challenge most sane historians would baulk at, unless they had a very clear idea of what they wanted to say. Luckily, knowing what he wants to say is one of Simms's strengths. For this book is driven by two great master-ideas, and there is hardly a page in it where their presence is not felt. So, no matter how dense the details may be of kings, wars, treaties and governments, the reader always has the exhilarating sense of moving swi
