Europe: 1945 to the Present examines the tumultuous history of Europe from the end of World War II through the present. Beginning with the post-war scene, and ending with a discussion of the European Union and its current plans for expansion, the narrative takes students through the past sixtyyears in a thoughtful, well-organized way. The book covers the Cold War, decolonization, and major developments in the arts and sciences, as well as Europe's reaction to the events of September 11, 2001, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and such episodes of terrorism as the Madrid bombings of 2004.Written in a clear, well-paced style, Europe: 1945 to the Present features primary source text boxes, a chronology, a list of supplemental readings, and numerous illustrations and maps. It is ideal for undergraduate courses on the history of Europe since 1945.
