About this title

Synopsis:

A Plea for Europe to form a United States of EuropeEurope: Chained by History is a groundbreaking book that uses history to make a compelling case for Europe to form a United States of Europe--or risk seeing the European Union come apart individually.Using the history of Vienna from its inception to 1938, readers are invited to observe Western Europe from within this ancient city.

  • Where did historic rivalries among European nations begin?
  • How did the Enlightenment affect Europe and the United States?
  • What persistent darkness allowed Hitler to lead the word in to a second devastating world war?
  • What will it take for today's European Union to survive?
Author Larry J. Hilton explores these questions, and more, by using fascinating details about what it was really like to live in Vienna from the the first century through the days of hyper-inflation after World War 1.Thought provoking and well researched, Europe: Chained by History radiates hope even as it details the formidable & political obstacles to European unity. In the end, a banking or ISIS crisis will force the issue.

Review:

"Europe, Chained by History radiates hope, even as it details formidable economic and political obstacles toEuropean unity. Readers will benefit from Hilton's passionate and contagious interest in his subject and recognize that he is writing not only about Europe but about humanity. If today's world leaders could put their egos aside and apply some of the author's commonsense ideas, they could create a better world for us all."
--FERN STEWART WELCH,AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR, ESSAYIST, AND BLOGGER

"Blending his strong knowledge of finance and history, Larry Hilton brings us an eye opening look at the dangers and opportunities facing modern Europe. With masterful storytelling skills, Hilton uses the personal lives of soldiers, philosophers, dictators, and everyday citizens to provide a vivid account of attitudes and events that have brought Europe to the brink of disaster. By threading his story throughVienna, he shows how Austria's past explains the present and makes a compelling case for a United States of Europe."
--CHRIS JOHNSTEN,INTERNATIONAL CONNECTIONS COORDINATOR, ARIZONA S TATE UNIVERSITY

"Larry Hilton skillfully traces the intertwining threads of economy and bigotry from ancient to modern times, revealing how they were woven into the stout cord that shackles Europe still."
 - RICHARD PARRY, AUTHOR, TRIAL BY ICE

"Exceptionally well researched, written, organized and presented....an impressively informed and informative study that will prove to be of immense interest to academia while being readily accessible for non-specialist general readers..."  - MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW

"Clearly, Hilton knows his history and its implications...I heartily recommend Hilton's book, Europe: Chained by History. He's here to help us remember the past, via the wonderful stories he shares of the personal lives of soldiers, philosophers, dictators -- and everyday citizens." - NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BABY BOOMER WOMEN
