Evans's history of 19th century Europe should be required reading for anyone interested in how we came to the situation facing us in the 21st. The beginning of the book,with its focus on geopolitics, is slow going but worth the effort. Evans seems to cover everything: A rich social history that spans the continent from the end of the Napoleonic wars to the onset of WW1. Highly recommended.

A well organized and thoughtful overview. It gave me great insight into this period. I did not realize how ignorant I was about this time with violence and hardship beyond scale we can comprehend.
Great reader. His use of voices for historical characters brought life to the reading. The 45 hours went surprisingly fast.
I would strongly recommend for any history student and any American who wants to better understand where as well as why our ancestors left
