Austrian writer Stefan Zweig's final work, posted to his publisher the day before his tragic death, brings the destruction of a war-torn Europe vividly to life. Written as both a recollection of the past, and as a warning for future generations, "The World of Yesterday" recalls the golden age of literary Vienna; its seeming permanence, its promise, and its devastating fall. A truthful and passionate account of the advent of the horror that tore apart European culture, "The World of Yesterday" gives us insight into the history of a world brutally destroyed, written by a master at the height of his literary talent.
