Product Details


“A heartbreaking, serious and thoughtful survey of human evil that is utterly fascinating and dramatic . . . superb narrative history.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Ferguson’s best book, by far, since The Pity of War . . . from bond markets to the face of battle, he has returned to the themes of his earlier book and to his strengths.”
-Paul Kennedy, The New York Review of Books

“Wielding at once the encyclopedic knowledge of an accomplished scholar and the engaging prose of a master storyteller, Ferguson commendably brings fresh insights to a history by now familiar. . . . A tour de force.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“Even those who have read widely in 20th-century history will find fresh, surprising details.”
The Boston Globe

“A fascinating read, thanks to Ferguson’s gifts as a writer of clear, energetic narrative history.”
The Washington Post
