Michael Macdonald sees Europe (and particularly England, France, and Germany) as the primary foundation of our western way of life, producing many of our greatest thinkers, artists, writers, politicians, and saints. While Europe, A Tantalizing Romance affirms the value of all European cultures, Macdonald chooses to focus mostly on the literary, artistic, philosophical, and theological contributions of England, France, Germany, Russia, central Europe, and Scandinavia, as well as a number of Europe's most visited cities-London, Paris, Berlin, Munich, Vienna, Prague, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Copenhagen, Rome, Florence, Venice, Madrid, and Athens. This book provides readers with a brief, scholarly, practical synthesis of what Europe stands for and has to offer its visitors. Revised numerous times based upon the author's experiences as Director of the European Quarter at Seattle Pacific University, this is an invaluable guide for travelers and non-travelers alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It is truly a treasure-trove of knowledge about Europe. What appealed most to me is that you illustrate the intellectual and cultural background to what students and visitors now see-putting everything into a historical perspective that make current events understandable. -- Brian H. Tracy, Junior Year at Heidelberg
The second edition is a vast improvement over the first, both in appearance and in content. -- K. Englehardt, Lewis and Clark College
Macdonald's Europe is a wonderful compendium of history and culture, combined with practical travel tips. Readable, well-organized, and most enjoyable, this book goes beyond the typically superficial tour guide to delve into the ideas and historywhich enlivened the Europe which helped give birth to Western Civilization. A rare combination of philosophy and e-mail addresses for travel bureaus, Europe demonstrates that a book can be both intellectually fulfilling and utterly useful. -- Kent R. Hill, President, Eastern Nazarene College
Professor Macdonald's book on Europe gives us something we don't ordinarily get in one volume: literate, historically-informed, succinct information, presented with real zest. This is an animated, trustworthy guide. -- Thomas Howard, St. John's Seminary
