Product Details


“Zweig drops into periods of history expertly. . . a series of short thrill-rides, where even if the reader knows why something occurred, it’s still a treat to see how Zweig raises the tension as he races to a well-known conclusion. . . Triumph and Disaster is stellar historical writing. Even as it zips by, it fully embraces this central thesis: sometimes the greatest change comes from the most unlikely places.” –Noah Cruickshank, the Field Museum, in Shelf Awareness

“Gems of literary perfection. I felt I had never read such lucid, liquid prose.” — Simon Winchester, Telegraph

“The perfect stocking-filler for the Europhile in your life.” Philosophy Football
