Overview

Drawing on the most recent social, economic, cultural, and intellectual research, Mark Konnert provides an engrossing overview of Europe during a highly dynamic and turbulent historical period. The book argues that while territorial trade-offs, resource and wealth distribution, and social conflict contributed to a century and a half of revolts, civil wars, and witch hunts, religion was the main catalyst for the violence that rocked the continent.

Konnert's comprehensive study will help guide the student through this complex period in European history. Maps, illustrations, and an index are included.
