A People's History of Europe Kan levereras innan julafton
This concise people's history of Europe tells the story of the last hundred years of a very old continent and the ordinary people that shaped the events that defined it from World War I to today. From the Russian Revolution, through May '68 and the Prague Spring, to the present day, we hear from workers, trade unionists, conscientious objectors and activists and learn of revolutions, labour movements, immigration struggles and anti-colonial conflicts. Cutting against the grain of mainstream histories, this is a history of Europe told from below. Containing new and fascinating insights, Raquel Varela paints a different picture of the European story; one where ordinary Europeans are active agents of their own history.

'A vivid and passionate fresco of a century of tumultuous European social history' -- Pietro Basso, Ca' Foscari University of Venice 'Raquel Varela succeeds in explaining the disasters of European neoliberalism, without ever romanticising the social pact that went before it. In a work with a rich sense of historical possibility, she shows how every inch of social progress had to be fought for and how little it ever had to do with the European institutions' -- David Broder, 'Jacobin'
