Vanished Kingdoms, How Nations Rise and Fall
by Norman Davies
- 720 PAGES
There is something profoundly romantic about lost civilizations. Davies, Professor Emeritus at London University, peers through the cracks in the mainstream accounts of modern-day states to present to us the histories of fourteen all-but-forgotten European kingdoms and nation states -- Aragon, Etruria, the Kingdom of the Two Burgundies, among others -- showing us how countries rise, mature and disappear.
