In THE LOST CONTINENT BBC Europe Editor Gavin Hewitt tells the story of a flawed dream, a noble vision that turned dangerous, and which led Europe into its gravest crisis since World War Two - a crisis for which it was totally unprepared.

A pillar of the post-war European dream was a shared currency, and with it came easy money, seducing some countries into a wild spending binge. After the financial crash in the United States, Europe caught the cold and was left with a debt crisis that came to threaten the entire European project.

THE LOST CONTINENT is rich in anecdote, weaving together the stories of ordinary people with the high politics and drama of Europe in crisis to give an unparalleled and vivid portrait of a massive shift in modern history. It includes interviews with top officials and insiders, and dramatic accounts of key meetings.

Gavin Hewitt's THE LOST CONTINENT is a clear-eyed book by a distinguished and well-connected journalist which tells the astonishing story of how we got here and where we might be headed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A sharp diagnosis of a very European sickness... Hewitt has done a thorough job piecing together the closed door action. -- Charles Bremner * The Times *
excellent, sweeping... this well-crafted book should be essential reading for those clinging dogmatically to the creed of integration. -- Leo McKinstry * Daily Express *
'An accessible bird's-eye view'. * Sunday Times *
A work of lively reportage showing a perceptive awareness of how the political and economic dramas vary from one country to another. -- Tony Barber * Financial Times *
The BBC's Europe editor, Gavin Hewitt, brings to bear the kind of perspicacity and insight we have come to expect from this seasoned correspondent in his excellent THE LOST CONTINENT, which examines the slow death of the European dream and how the crisis we are still living through was allowed to happen. * Choice *
Blow-by-blow account of the horrors of the euro drama. * Economist *
