Multi-award-winning historian and writer Margaret MacMillan provides a fascinating portrait of Europe between 1900 and the outbreak of World War I. Europe had been enjoying its most peaceful century since the fall of the Roman Empire and many felt the continent was heading for a happy and prosperous future. MacMillan brings to life the military, political and business leaders who failed to stop the descent into war and explains how the decisions of a few powerful people changed the course of history.

MacMillan is warden of St Antony’s College, Oxford, and author of Paris 1919 –winner of the Duff Cooper Prize, the Samuel Johnson Prize for nonfiction, and the Hessell-Tiltman Prize for History – Nixon and Mao and Women of the Raj.
