Mazower earned his BA in Classics and Philosophy from the University of Oxford in 1981 and his doctorate from the same university in 1988. He also holds an MA in International Affairs from Johns Hopkins University (1983). Prior to his arrival at Columbia, Mazower taught at Birkbeck, University of London, and at the University of Sussex. He has also taught at Princeton University.
He has been appointed to the Advisory Board of the European Association of History Educators (EUROCLIO).
Mazower was named by Noam Chomsky as being among a class of people guilty of a "denial of colossal atrocities" in relation to an article published by the British historian in which he characterized former U.S. Representative Howard Berman as having "acknowledg[ed] his country's own mistreatment of Native Americans."
Fields of interest
Mazower has written extensively on Balkan history, and Greek history. His book The Balkans: A Short History won the Wolfson History Prize and Inside Hitler's Greece: The Experience of Occupation, 1941–44, both won the Longman History Today Award for Book of the Year. Salonica, City of Ghosts: Christians, Muslims and Jews 1430–1950 was the Runciman Prize and Duff Cooper Prize winner and was shortlisted for the Hessell-Tiltman Prize.
In addition, Mazower is more broadly concerned with 20th-century European history. His book Dark Continent: Europe's 20th century argued that the triumph of democracy in Europe was not inevitable but rather the result of chance and political agency on the part of citizens, subjects and leaders.
In Hitler's Empire: Nazi Rule in Occupied Europe, Mazower compared Nazi occupation policy in different European countries.
One of Mazower's most recent books, No Enchanted Palace, was published in 2009. It narrates the origins of the United Nations and its strict ties to colonialism and its predecessor organisation, the League of Nations. In his 2012 publication Governing the World, this narrative is taken one step further, and the history of international organisations in general is evaluated, beginning with the Concert of Europe at the start of the nineteenth century.
