Reviews

"Few authors have ever been as ambitious in attempting to chronicle the three crucial decades that spanned the World Wars . . . [The Age of Catastrophe] rises to the challenge. . . . it seamlessly weaves through the political and economic upheavals happening in the various nations of the Western world."--Carlo Valle, Military Review
"The Age of Catastrophe is testimony to the enduring hold that modernization narratives have over the historical imagination . . . The details of the account . . . radiate unimpeachable erudition and craftsmanship."--Stefan J. Link, Journal of Modern History
"An extraordinary tour de force. . . . An equally powerful and knowledgeable panorama of the western world in the era of its greatest disaster."--Ian Kershaw, author of Hitler
