About This Item

Viking Books, 2012. Hardcover. New/New. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall.

Synopsis

From the bestselling author of Europe: A History comes a uniquely ambitious masterpiece that will thrill fans of lost civilizations While Germany, Italy, France, and England dominate our conceptions of Europe, these modern states are relatively recent constructs. In this brilliant work of historical reconstruction, Norman Davies brings back to life the long-forgotten empire of Aragon, which once controlled the Western Mediterranean; the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, once the largest country in Europe, and the Kingdom of the Rock, founded by ancient Britons when neither England nor Scotland existed. In the tradition of Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs, and Steel , Davies subverts our established view of the past and urges us to reconsider the impetus for the rise and fall of nations.

Reviews

On Feb 13 2015, a reader said:
A fine set of accounts of different areas of Europe which have lost their identities and become part of modern nation-states. The Mediterranean Empire of Aragon/Catalonia, Burgundy in its many guises from the Dark Ages to modern France, Montenegro and many others - if you are interested in well-written history this is a humane and readable treat.
