About the Book

In this book, Volker Berghahn explains the rise and fall of the men of violence whose wars twice devastated large areas of the European continent and Russia- and why, after World War II, Europe adopted a liberal capitalist model of society. He explores the political terrain of Europe throughout the twentieth century and how the capitalist, industrial model came to be adopted throughout Europe.--[book cover]
