Postwar: A History of Europe Since 1945
Tony Judt is the Erich Maria Remarque Professor of European Studies at New York University.
Tony Judt talked about his book Postwar: A History of Europe Since 1945, published by Penguin Press. In his book he traced European history after World War I, describing economic, political, and social changes in several countries. In his talk, the author explained that Europe lived in the “shadow of World War II” and did not recover from the economic costs until well into the late 1980s. He also described the emergence of a more consumer-oriented society in Europe beginning in the late 1950s. Following his presentation, Mr. Judt responded to questions and comments from members of the audience.
