Review:

In From Plato to NATO, political historian David Gress takes a wide-ranging look at the development of Western Europe and its colonial outposts. Gress views Europe not just as a geographic entity, but as a complex of conflicting ideas such as social good and individual rights, control and freedom. Those ideas come from many traditions, and they have blended to make the region politically and economically unlike any other in the world. Gress's viewpoint is conservative, but the author also calls himself a "skeptical liberal." Readers of all political stripes will find much food for thought in these pages.

About the Author:

David Gress was born in Copenhagen of Danish-American parents, studied classics at Cambridge and received his Ph.D. in medieval history from Bryn Mawr College. He is a fellow of the Danish Institute of International Affairs and director of the Center for Studies on America and the West at the Foreign Policy Research Institute in Philadelphia. He is the author, with Dennis L. Bark, of A History of West Germany, and of other works in both Danish and English. He lives with his wife and three children in Denmark.
