Description

The Pursuit of Power draws on a lifetime of thinking about 19th-century Europe to create an extraordinarily rich, surprising and entertaining panorama of a continent undergoing drastic change.

The aim of this audiobook is to reignite the sense of wonder that permeated this remarkable era, as rulers and ruled navigated overwhelming cultural, political and technological changes. It was a time where what was seen as modern with amazing speed appeared old-fashioned, where huge cities sprang up in a generation, where new European countries were created and where, for the first time, humans could communicate almost instantly over thousands of miles.

Richard Evans gives full coverage to the revolutions, empire building and wars that marked the 19th century, but the book is about so much more, whether it is illness, serfdom, religion or philosophy. The Pursuit of Power is an audiobook by a historian at the height of his powers and an essential audiobook for anyone trying to understand Europe, then or now.

A great book.

This was a very fine book that learned me so much about a time that influenced us still so much, the struggle for universal voting rights, Metternich, Bismarck... I know so much more now! pleasant and good voice.

BISMARCK BISMARCK BISMARCK

This is a great book, and as always the author knows how to tell his story in an engaging and comprehensive way. The narrator needs to take some training though. Pauses after every six or seven words, overly dramatic quotes, and worst of all the way he shouts out BISMARCK every other sentence really ruin the enjoyment of this otherwise great book.
