By Richard J. Evans

De negentiende eeuw is misschien wel de meest wonderlijke periode uit de geschiedenis. Het was once een tijd waarin alles wat als glossy werd gezien ongelooflijk snel ouderwets bleek te zijn, waarin enorme steden binnen één generatie uit de grond verrezen, nieuwe Europese landen werden gevormd en mensen voor het eerst bijna direct over een afstand van duizenden kilometers konden communiceren.

Wat al deze veranderingen gemeen hadden, was once het streven naar macht bij alle rangen en standen, van de bankier die op economische macht uit was once tot de horige die onder het juk van zijn landheer probeerde uit te komen, van de ingenieur die het milieu ondergeschikt maakte aan het maatschappelijk belang tot de psychiater die de wetenschap gebruikte om de menselijke natuur te onderdrukken.

Richard J. Evans geeft een volledige beschrijving van de revoluties, de oorlogen en de opbouw van rijken die de negentiende eeuw markeerden. De eeuw van de macht is een boek van een historicus op het hoogtepunt van zijn kunnen en essentieel voor iedereen die probeert inzicht te krijgen in het Europa van toen én nu.
