The postwar period is no longer current affairs but is becoming the recent past. As such, it is increasingly attracting the attentions of historians. Whilst the Cold War has long been a mainstay of political science and contemporary history, recent research approaches postwar Europe in many different ways, all of which are represented in the 35 chapters of this book. As well as diplomatic, political, institutional, economic, and social history, the The Oxford Handbook of Postwar European History contains chapters which approach the past through the lenses of gender, espionage, art and architecture, technology, agriculture, heritage, postcolonialism, memory, and generational change, and shows how the history of postwar Europe can be enriched by looking to disciplines such as anthropology and philosophy. The Handbook covers all of Europe, with a notable focus on Eastern Europe. Including subjects as diverse as the meaning of 'Europe' and European identity, southern Europe after dictatorship, the cultural meanings of the bomb, the 1968 student uprisings, immigration, Americanization, welfare, leisure, decolonization, the Wars of Yugoslav Succession, and coming to terms with the Nazi past, the thirty five essays in this Handbook offer an unparalleled coverage of postwar European history that offers far more than the standard Cold War framework. Readers will find self-contained, state-of-the-art analyses of major subjects, each written by acknowledged experts, as well as stimulating and novel approaches to newer topics. Combining empirical rigour and adventurous conceptual analysis, this Handbook offers in one substantial volume a guide to the numerous ways in which historians are now rewriting the history of postwar Europe.

MEDIA REVIEWS
a fascinating and well-informed read ... a useful resource for years to come. * Martijn Lak, European History Quarterly *
essential reading for specialists and their students * Mark Smith, Reviews in History *
This is a handbook in very best sense of the word. Stone has succeeded in producing an aide that is meant inspire scholars rather than merely inform them. I recommend that all who work in the area have a copy within arms' reach. * Nicholas Doumanis, Australian Journal of Politics and History *
With this volume Dan Stone has added to the formidable roster of high-quality and cutting-edge edited volumes that he has to his credit; it is essential reading for historians of post-war Europe. * Patrick Finney, The International History Review *
