About the Author

Mark Greengrass succeeds brilliantly in bringing to life a vanished world that is consistently strange and surprising-and sometimes disturbing and repellent-even as he encourages us to recognise the ways in which it prefigures our own -- Peter Marshall * Literary Review *
The Penguin History of Europe series ... is one of contemporary publishing's great projects * New Statesman *
With five volumes now out, the Penguin History of Europe series ... is shaping up to be the best general account available, superseding all previous ones * Economist *
Greengrass's learned book explores the bloody history of Europe . . . Nothing escapes Greengrass's gaze, from the arrival of pineapples to the making of maps. For sheer scholarly breadth, there is nothing to touch it this year -- Dominic Sandbrook * Sunday Times BOOKS OF THE YEAR *
The political and religious conflicts of early modern Europe receive high-quality treatment from Greengrass . . . But he also gives a detailed account of changes in ordinary people's lives, from diet and clothes to language, making the book an excellent addition to the new Penguin History of Europe -- Tony Barber * Financial Times BOOKS OF THE YEAR *
Christendom Destroyed captures a great deal of truth about the wrenching transitions of the early modern age. As difficult as this history is, Mr. Greengrass narrates it with admirable clarity and a notable lack of condescension -- Jeffrey Collins * Wall St Journal *
