The Pursuit of Power

Richard J. Evans

Richard Evans's lively, engaging and informative addition to the Penguin History of Europe series covers the period from the fall of Napoleon to the outbreak of World War One. A 99-year period of enormous social and political change, Evans's absorbing narrative traverses the crumbling of Spanish, Ottoman and Mughal empires and the rise of British imperial ambition, details the violent Revolutions of the mid-nineteenth century and charts the unification of Germany and Italy. This original work by one of Britain's leading historians gives the reader a magnificently painted picture of Europe during these turbulent years.

His previous books include In Defence of History, Telling Lies about Hitler, The Coming of the Third Reich, The Third Reich in Power and The Third Reich at War. He was knighted in 2012.
