Timothy Snyder

Timothy Snyder is the author of Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin, for which he received the Hannah Arendt Prize and the Kazimierz Moczarski Historic Award. In Bloodlands, he re-examines the political, cultural, and ideological forces in play during WWII that led to what he posits was the worst suffering and bloodshed in western history. The book is a synthesis of a massive amount of data—his research was conducted in 11 languages. His work is, itself, a fresh look at the craft of nonfiction writing, as well as an important sociopolitical commentary.
