Adam Tooze's great insights into the history of Europe

Adam Tooze's great insights into the history of Europe
I spend the weekend with my family in the Christensen vacation home in Skåne (Southern Sweden). I didn't do any reading, but I had time to watch a fantastic lecture series on YouTube with one of my absolute favourite historians Adam Tooze. Tooze did the lectures last year at Stanford University's Europe Center. Watch the great lectures here: "Making Peace in Europe 1917-1919: Brest-Litovsk and Versailles" "Hegemony: Europe, America and the problem of financial reconstruction, 1916-1933" "Unsettled Lands: the interwar crisis of agrarian Europe" While I do not agree with all of Tooze's thinking continue to think that he is one of the most inspiring historians in the world to listen to - particularly for economists. Enjoy the lectures! PS I equally recommend Tooze's two latest books Wages of Destruction and The Deluge. Both books give great insight not only into history, but also teaches us great lessons for today's world. ---- Update: For some reason I had missed David Frum's excellent review of Wages of Destruction and The Deluge - and Brad DeLong's "thoughts on David From's review".
