Críticas:

Wonderfully compelling ... never less than a delight to read ... supremely well informed, thoughtful and enjoyable (Dominic Sandbrook Evening Standard)

Overy is one of the great historians of the second world war (Bryan Appleyard Sunday Times)

It's difficult to do justice to the richness of Overy's account (Noel Malcolm Saturday Telegraph)

It is hard to imagine anyone recording these times more exactly and more intelligently, or with greater insight and scholarship, than Overy has in this book (Simon Heffer Telegraph)

a rewarding book, and a highly readable one (John Gross Standpoint)

Reseña del editor:

Richard Overy's The Morbid Age opens a window onto the creative but anxious period between the First and Second World Wars.

British intellectual life between the wars stood at the heart of modernity; it was the golden age of the public intellectual and scientist: Arnold Toynbee, Aldous and Julian Huxley, H. G. Wells, Marie Stopes and a host of others. Yet, as Richard Overy argues, a striking characteristic of so many of the ideas that emerged from this new age - from eugenics to the Freudian unconscious, to modern ideas of pacifism and world government - was the fear that the West was faced a dystopian future of war, economic collapse and racial degeneration.

Brilliantly evoking a Britain of BBC radio lectures, public debates, peace demonstrations, pamphleteers, psychoanalysts, anti-fascist volunteers, sex education manuals and science fiction, The Morbid Age reveals a time at once different from, and yet surprisingly similar to, our own.

'History at its best'
   Economist

'The carefree image of life in Britain between the wars is overturned in this magnificent account'
   Peter Preston, Observer

'It is hard to imagine anyone recording these times more exactly and more intelligently, or with greater insight and scholarship, than Overy has'
   Simon Heffer, Daily Telegraph

'With learning, lucidity and wit, The Morbid Age ... brilliantly describes the sense of an inevitably approaching catastrophe'
   Eric Hobsbawm, London Review of Books

Richard Overy is Professor of History at the University of Exeter. His books include Why the Allies Won, Russia's War, The Battle of Britain and The Dictators, which won the Wolfson and the Hessell Tiltman Prizes for history in 2005.
