From the Great War to the Bloodlands: Rethinking Europe's History

Europe's early 20th century was an era of unprecdedented brutality in human history-the 16 million dead of World War I followed in short order by the 60 million casualities of World War II. Historian Timothy Snyder, the foremost scholar of the period, presents his path-breaking interpretation of Europe's Bloodlands, offering a new theory of political violence in the modern times.
