This lavishly illustrated history of Europe from the late 18th century to the present day combines readability with scholarly authority. Each of the 11 contributors is a scholar of international standing, and together they present an account of modern Europe which is both stimulating and accessible. Writing incisively and entertainingly, they trace Europe's turbulent history up to the present day's new kaleidoscope of nation-states. The volume presents both change and continuity, revolutions and stability -- in economics, culture, and warfare, as well as in politics and society -- while the great wealth of illustrations complements the text at every stage. Everyone who reads this book will achieve a better understanding of the world in which we live, how it came to be what it is, and even where it may be going next.
