Without neglecting the more familiar stories of war, genocide, and economic depression, each chapter demonstrates that political stability and regime collapse, social progress and mass poverty, the crisis of European civilization and remarkable cultural achievements, existed alongside each other. With the military struggles and intense political conflicts also came innovations in social welfare, the introduction of far-reaching labor laws, the breakthrough of parliamentary democracy and republicanism, and the enduring personal networks that resulted from international migration.
Emphasizing the histories of the smaller states--and the multifaceted nature of the period--Twisted Paths illuminates the diversity of Europe's experiences in the first half of the twentieth century.
