9780199212002: The Triumph of the Dark: European International History 1933-1939 (Oxford History of Modern Europe)

In this magisterial narrative, Zara Steiner traces the twisted road to war that began with Hitler's assumption of power in Germany. Covering a wide geographical canvas, from America to the Far East, Steiner provides an indispensable reassessment of the most disputed events of these tumultuous years.

Steiner underlines the far-reaching consequences of the Great Depression, which shifted the initiative in international affairs from those who upheld the status quo to those who were intent on destroying it. In Europe, the l930s were Hitler's years. He moved the major chess pieces on the board, forcing the others to respond. From the start, Steiner argues, he intended war, and he repeatedly gambled on Germany's future to acquire the necessary resources to fulfil his continental ambitions. Only war could have stopped him-an unwelcome message for most of Europe. Misperception, miscomprehension, and misjudgment on the part of the other Great Powers leaders opened the way for Hitler's repeated diplomatic successes.

It is ideology that distinguished the Hitler era from previous struggles for the mastery of Europe. Ideological presumptions created false images and raised barriers to understanding that even good intelligence could not penetrate. Only when the leaders of Britain and France realized the scale of Hitler's ambition, and the challenge Germany posed to their Great Power status, did they finally declare war.

About the Author :


Zara Steiner is Emeritus Fellow, New Hall, University of Cambridge, and a Fellow of the British Academy.

Review :


"The Triumph of the Dark is magisterial in design, meticulous in execution, and curiously oldfashioned in its inclinations. Steiner has accomplished the admirable feat of distilling decades of research and a seemingly inexhaustible library of secondary literature into a detailed but clear-cut narrative of six and a half years of European political history...Steiner's volume will be the authoritative reference."--Journal of Modern History


"A gigantic work of synthesis...[A] staggering achievement."--Literary Review


"A remarkable achievement of conscientious scholarship."--New Statesman


"A landmark event...Steiner's two volumes will undoubtedly become a standard work of reference for the two decades between the world wars...A distillation of a lifetime of fine scholarship, this is an invaluable account of one dimension of these complex and fateful years."--Britain and the World


"A modern classic...[M]agnificent...Authoritative and absorbing, Steiner's volume will stand the test of time."--BBC History Magazine


"A terrifically good read...[A] definitive account, the distillation of a lifetime's dedicated scholarship...No short review can do justice to the book's riches."--The Independent
