A breathtaking account of a world in flux told with engaging attention to detail. * BIG ISSUE IN THE NORTH * Blom's is an ambitious project that delivers a fascinating whistle-stop tour of European history -- Naomi Booth * DAILY TELEGRAPH * [Blom] aims both to highlight the prophetic power of the first globalised age...and to shun the easy hindsight that would throw the blight of the Great War back over all that came before. It's a tough course, but one he negotiates in style. * INDEPENDENT * offers stimulating insights into the period and is illuminating on Austrian contributions to the innovative ferment of the time * SUNDAY TIMES *
