At its most fundamental level dark continent takes as its thesis that the view of the modern european state as naturally democratic is definitively false it is perhaps obvious that europe has been dominated by totalitarian regimes whether fascist or communist during the 20th century. Dark continent europes twentieth century is a 1998 book by mark mazower the book deals with european history from the end of world war i until the yugoslav wars in the 1990s mazower emphasized the fragility of democracy and argued that a democratic europe was just one of many possible outcomes of the european 20th century. Dark continent is billed as or at least the reviews printed in this edition claim it is a take down of the positive spin on europes 20th century history. His chronological cut off point in reality lies around may 1997 the date of the labour party triumph in the most recent british general election to infer from this that dark continent europes twentieth century is therefore britain orientated or even an offensively british history of europe would however be a mistake
