Books on the period between WW1 and WW2?

I'm new to history as a field of study, and I chose World War 1 as a place to start. Having finished reading several books on the topic, I'm ready to move past World War 1 for now. My first instinct was to dive into the seemingly infinite pool of literature that is World War 2, but I'm not sure if I'd be doing the 20th century justice by skipping the intervening years. Essentially, I'm looking for a book that covers the period between the World Wars. Ideally, this book would focus on Europe but touch on at least some of the rest of the world. Bonus points if this book is available as an audiobook.

Culture and economy of late medieval Central Europe

I'm working on an architectural research project on late gothic Germanic churches (from about 1500-1650), and feel hamstrung by my ignorance of the cultures and economies in which the architecture was produced. [more inside]

European history textbooks?

I'm looking for a good book or two surveying the major topics in European history up through the unification of Germany and Italy in the late 1800s. Ideally, the book would have a level of detail similar to what would be covered in an AP European History class or a lower-division undergraduate European history course. Bonus points if the book has a good bibliography for further reading on specific events/time periods.
