ANTONY ALCOCK is Professor Emeritus of European Studies at the University of Ulster, Northern Ireland. From the squabling Greek city states of ancient times, almost continuously at war with each other until exhausted and falling prey to larger neighbouring powers, to the 20th century and the European nation states doing exactly the same thing with the same consequences, the book does rather read as a convincing case for the need for european integration to compete with the. rest of the world.

Antony Evelyn Alcock, J. E Spence. Future generations of undergraduates and postgraduates alike will have cause to be grateful for a stimulating introduction to a major area of European studies.

Antony Alcock's Short History of Europe is precisely that-a .

Antony Alcock's Short History of Europe is precisely that-a breathtakingly brief dash through four thousand years and half a dozen aspects of European history, touching on economic, political, military, religious, administrative, and diplomatic developments, but with scarcely a glance at social, cultural, or artistic aspects; the Renaissance, in the usual artistic or literary senses, hardly occurs, to give the. most striking example of the book's focus  .

Excellent summary of the history of Europe

I hated history in college, but this guy made it all make sense. It's easy to read and he has an excellent perspective on the big picture, so to speak.

There have been a couple of very big name histories of Europe published in the last few years, this one compares to them suprisingly well. Whilst still providing an engaging narrative of the broad sweep of events, it does have a slightly more textbook feel, with the author regularly listing points as to why, for example, the Roman Empire fell in the west yet survived in the east. From the squabling Greek city states of ancient times, almost continuously at war with each other until exhausted and falling prey to larger neighbouring powers, to the 20th century and the European nation states doing exactly the same thing with the same consequences, the book does rather read as a convincing case for the need for european integration to compete with the rest of the world. Still, whether the modern European nation state is too 'small time' to survive and prosper, as the author feels the Greek city states were, is a question that is just too early to answer in the still early dawn of globalisation and the new boundary free information age.

I'd certainly reccomend this book, particularly for a student who needs to get a good grasp of the overview of European history as quickly as possible.
