Overview

This extensively illustrated book offers a new kind of introduction to Europe between 1500 and 1800. It considers the evolving economy and society - the basic facts of life for the majority of Europe's people. It shows how the religious and intellectual unity of western culture fragmented and dissolved under the impact of new ideas. It also examines politics to consider the emergence of modern attitudes and techniques in governing.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
British historian Cameron, author of The European Reformation Oxford Univ., 1991, joins ten prominent British and American historians in surveying the three centuries of European history from 1500 to 1800. Perhaps the most momentous period of European development, these years saw the fragmentation of the Christian Church, the European exploration and settlement of North and South America, the emergence of new forms of governance, and the rise of the nation state. While considering the broad cultural, religious, and political trends over the course of these three centuries, the authors also attempt to illustrate what daily life was like for the people of this period and how they felt and responded as their world changed around them. The authors succeed in illuminating one of the most eventful periods in European history. This work should be of interest to the general reader as well as to students. Highly recommended for public and academic libraries.--Robert J. Andrews, Duluth P.L., MN Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
