The Second World War left Europe in chaos. Landscapes had been ravaged, entire cities razed and more than 35 million people killed. Across most of the continent, the institutions that we now take for granted - such as the police, the media, transport,local and national government - were either entirely absent or hopelessly compromised. Crime rates soared, economies collapsed, and the European population hovered on the brink of starvation.

In this groundbreaking study of the years that followed the war, Keith Lowe describes a continent still racked by violence, where large sections of the population had yet to accept that the war was over. He outlines the warped morality and the insatiable urge for vengeance that were the legacy of the conflict.

Based on original documents, interviews and scholarly literature in eight different languages, Savage Continent is a window on the brief, chaotic period between the end of World War II and the beginning of the Cold War.

The Author
Ο KEITH LOWE είναι συγγραφέας και ιστορικός, το έργο του οποίου έχει μεταφραστεί σε είκοσι γλώσσες σε όλο τον κόσμο. Στο βιβλίο του Ο ΦΟΒΟΣ ΚΑΙ Η ΕΛΕΥΘΕΡΙΑ εξετάζει τον τρόπο που ο Δεύτερος Παγκόσμιος Πόλεμος διαμόρφωσε τη σύγχρονη αντίληψη του έθνους, της πόλης και της κοινότητας. Από τις Εκδόσεις ΨΥΧΟΓΙΟΣ κυκλοφορεί επίσης το έργο του ΟΛΕΘΡΟΣ, που αποτελεί μια συνταρακτική καταγραφή του χάους και της αναρχίας, που είχαν καταλάβει την Ευρώπη στον απόηχο του Δευτέρου Παγκοσμίου Πολέμου, κι έχει τιμηθεί με το Βραβείο English PEN Hessell-Tiltman, ενώ μπήκε στη Βραχεία Λίστα για τα Βραβεία Longman-History Today.
