Ian Kershaw

Author of several volumes on 20th-Century Europe
“I think it’s less a matter of constructing a new narrative for Europe and saying this is the way it should go. I think it’s more a matter of the way in which it will go, determined by events which we can’t foresee very easily.” -Ian Kershaw
