On the very day of the paperback release, Peter Gatrell’s “timely and ambitious” new history of Europe, focusing on how modern migration has radically altered the continent, has scooped the preeminent $10,000 award, presented each year to the best book that transcends a focus on any one country, state, or people to stimulate new ways of thinking about contemporary Europe as a whole.

Peter Gatrell has produced a tour de force… This important and timely work on one of the most challenging issues in modern Europe deserves to be widely read.’ – Ian Kershaw
