The new sixth edition of the leading text in contemporary European history is now thoroughly revised with up-to-date scholarship.
Its coverage of southern and eastern Europe is expanded, as is its coverage of social history—especially women’s history. It charts the theme of globalization starting with the 1890s and moving through to post-9/11. This new edition also examines how twenty-first-century Europe has addressed issues such as immigration and migration, economic globalization, environmental degradation, and terrorism.
A standard text now brought current through 1989-1990. A new edition (3d was in 1984) will be needed to reflect events of August 1991. A solid and concise treatment with a modest bibliography. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
