Walter Laquer's "Europe in Our Time- A History: 1945-1992" is a supremely authoritative text, detailing a period in European history (and world history) quite unlike any other. Europe was, to be blatantly honest, a mess after the Allies defeated the Germans and received their unconditional surrender. The problem was what to do after the end of the European War.

Eminent historian Walter Laqueur's "Europe in Our Time" provides an incisive chronicle of the continent's political, economic, social, and cultural evolution from the origins of the Cold War to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the disintegration of the Soviet Union. This is an excellent and timely study of postwar Europe written by one of the finest historians of our era. Comprehensive in scope, it eschews the stereotypical political and diplomatic focus common.

The book was published in 1992 and though it mentions the August 1991 coup attempt in the USSR, it doesn't have much information past 1990. But that makes it a useful resource to gain an insight into the mood and historiography of the time towards post-war Europe. It also notes several trends that are still of concern today, notably the future of the EU (or EEC, as it was still known at the time), integration of the former communist states with the rest of Europe, immigration, and the effects of a recent recession.

Reviews about Europe in Our Time: A History 1945-1992 (3):

Laqueur's main thesis in the book is to answer the question of how Europe recovered from the destruction of the Second World War and why it went as it did. As he notes, it was widely believed in 1945 that it would take decades for the continent to recover, and even then it would never recover its position within the world.

To answer the question, Laqueur heavily involves economics; indeed it is the predominant aspect of the book. He details why certain political parties were able to come to power in the states of Western Europe (naturally focusing above all on the UK, France, Italy and West Germany). At the same time he examines the economics of the Communist Bloc, and why they were not able to keep up with the west.

The book was published in 1992 and though it mentions the August 1991 coup attempt in the USSR, it doesn't have much information past 1990. But that makes it a useful resource to gain an insight into the mood and historiography of the time towards post-war Europe. It also notes several trends that are still of concern today, notably the future of the EU (or EEC, as it was still known at the time), integration of the former communist states with the rest of Europe, immigration, and the effects of a recent recession.

As noted, it places a heavy focus on the four major states of Western Europe, while only briefly touching on the others (Scandinavia, Spain, Benelux, Austria and Switzerland), and while it does discuss Eastern Europe, details are, as noted, hard to come by and verify. As well it places almost an undue amount of focus on economics, with a lot of numbers and figures listed but not always placed in the right context. Other than that, it makes for an interesting read, especially with the benefit of two decades of hindsight in regards to the collapse of communism and the USSR.

Walter Laquer's "Europe in Our Time- A History: 1945-1992" is a supremely authoritative text, detailing a period in European history (and world history) quite unlike any other.
Europe was, to be blatantly honest, a mess after the Allies defeated the Germans and received their unconditional surrender. The problem was what to do after the end of the European War.
From here, Laquer speaks of all the important developments that occured in Europe, in most countries, in a very interesting prose-like fashion. Key concepts and terms our all explained sufficiently, and this book is similar to a novel in that it will keep you up at night, turning page after page, swallowing the history of Europe after 1945.
Highly recommended for undergraduate history students, and anyone remotely interested in how the modern world came about.

Dry history book that contains little that has not been said before. Lacking in analysis of events.
