About the Author

Donald Sassoon is Emeritus Professor of Comparative European History at Queen Mary, University of London, and the acclaimed author of The Anxious Triumph, The Culture of the Europeans, One Hundred Years of Socialism and Mona Lisa, all widely translated.


Sassoon is both a brilliant writer and has a polymathic range. He has produced a magnum opus, an accessible and genuinely global history of the transformative but unstable character of the capitalist phenomenon. This is a book for today and tomorrow -- Harold James * Financial Times [for The Anxious Triumph] *
Studded with fascinating details . . . Familiar facts mingle with jaw-dropping novelties . . . brilliant -- Adam Tooze * Guardian [for The Anxious Triumph] *
An unfailingly enjoyable history of a tumultuous half-century. His asides are sometimes playful, sometimes caustic, but always to the point . . . masterly . . . the doyen of comparative historians -- Ferdinand Mount * Times Literary Supplement [for The Anxious Triumph] *
