Providing a concise introduction to European history between 1914 and 1945, Twisted Paths broadens the traditional geographical focus by covering historical developments in southern, northern, and eastern Europe. Moving beyond the traditional view that European history in this period can only be understood in terms of catastrophe, it argues that political stability and regime collapse, social progress and mass poverty, the crisis of European civilization and remarkable cultural achievements, existed alongside each other.
