en Limba Engleză Paperback – April 2003
Now covering the whole of Europe from the French Revolution to the present day, this major new edition has been completely revised and brought up-to-date. The approach embraces the whole continent from both national and regional perspectives, and combines political survey with grass roots 'people' history. Bringing this history vividly to life, the authors use a very broad range of sources including memoirs, archives, letters, songs and newspapers. In particular, there is new treatment of the following themes:
  • Religion and the modern Papacy
  • Immigration in Europe and relationships between minority and majority groups
  • The European Bill of Rights
  • The seeds of conflict in Bosnia and Croatia
  • Europe's relations with the wider world, with particular attention to the Middle East and Japan.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

'Modern Europe, 1789-Present', is an innovative history. While the narrative of big events that have shaped the Europe that we see today is clearly unfolded, Modern Europe also reaches deep below the political surface to examine how European society and culture have influenced, or been influenced by, these developments. It traces the emergence, from the French Revolution onwards, of a distinctive sense of Europe and Europeanness. At the same time it explores the growth and impact of the new phenomenon of the nation state - one of nineteenth-century Europe's most powerful legacies to our own time.

The narrative and analysis are enriched and enlivened throughout by a wealth of evidence 'from below'. This is not just the official history of constitutions, institutions and ruling elites. The authors are alive throughout to the varied fortunes of Europe's diverse peoples and classes - rich and poor, urban and rural, young and old - and, not least, to the changing impact of gender on the ways of life available to them.

This new edition has been comprehensively revised and updated throughout. In particular there is original examination of:

  • The Cold War and its ending
  • Post-Soviet central and eastern Europe
  • Europe s relations with the wider world
  • Immigration in Europe
  • Ethnic conflict in the last two centuries
