MEDIA REVIEWS

'Of real use to specialists and graduate students. Recommended.' CHOICE

'Philip Minehan's masterful and lucid comparative analysis is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the bloody mid-20th century civil wars in Spain, Yugoslavia and Greece, which influenced the Mediterranean region until the end of the century. This first book by Minehan is a highly recommended tour de force."

- Ivan Berend, Distinguished Professor, History Department, University of California at Los Angeles

'Minehan accomplishes an extraordinary hat trick. He provides a sophisticated social and political comparative study of the Spanish, Greek, and Yugoslav civil wars that sheds new light on each of them. He sets them firmly within the narrative of the three-way global battle between capitalism, fascism, and communism as it continued to change shape through depression, world war, and postwar. He shows why the closely interrelated domestic and international aspects of these conflicts are inexplicable apart from the over-arching struggle among classes, agrarian, industrial, and financial. Civil War and World War in Europe is an indispensable contribution to understanding the emergence of the post-war world.'

- Robert Brenner, author of The Boom and the Bubble and Economics of Global Turbulence
