WOW! Not a clunker in the bunch! A great collection of stories that kept me glued to every page. Designer was my absolute favorite! God I LOVE short stories!
A broad overview of 20th century European history, written from a skeptical left-wing perspective - while Mazower is more skeptical of the right than the left (he really skewers Thatcherism), he doesn't paper over the failures on either side of the political spectrum, of which there have been MANY, in Europe.
Very thorough. A must read to get understand the development of Western Philosophy. Russell is as usual pure reason itself. Not to say that the work cannot be improved. Maybe if I had spent a decade on a book I would have made it 10 volumes long so as not to omit interesting things. In forcing the subject into a single volume, B.R. was forced to make discussions on particular philosophers very brief, a pity. I read it just before I turned 21 and I grew up in the two months I spent reading it. When I get tenured, I shall read it once again.
