Dark Valley by Piers Brendon

Book Description

The 1930s were perhaps the seminal decade in twentieth-century history, a dark time of global depression that displaced millions, paralyzed the liberal democracies, gave rise to totalitarian regimes, and, ultimately, led to the Second World War. In this sweeping history, Piers Brendon brings the tragic, dismal days of the 1930s to life. From Stalinist pogroms to New Deal programs, Brendon re-creates the full scope of a slow international descent towards war. Offering perfect sketches of the players, riveting descriptions of major events and crises, and telling details from everyday life, he offers both a grand, rousing narrative and an intimate portrait of an era that make sense out of the fascinating, complicated, and profoundly influential years of the 1930s.

Decline and Fall of the British Empire, 1781-1997 by Piers Brendon Decline and Fall of the British Empire, 1781-1997, Paperback / softback (February 2010)

A comprehensive, scholarly, and fascinating study of the end of the British Empire, this work--full of vivid particulars, brief lives, telling anecdotes, comic episodes, symbolic moments and illustrative vignettes--evokes remote places as well as distant times.

Dark Valley by Piers Brendon Dark Valley, Paperback (March 2001)

In this worldwide survey of the 1930s, Brendon examines the great powers and their leaders and investigates how, and how far, contemporary minds knew what they knew, and the extent to which our own view of the time is fogged by their uncertainty. He illuminates a period when the world was struggling with one crisis and hurtling towards another.
