Short Oxford History of Europe

  • The third volume (following Blanning's Eighteenth Century and Nineteenth Century volumes) of the major new Short Oxford History of Europe series
  • The contributors are all top names in the field and together make up an enterprising and formidable volume (series editor is Professor T C W Blanning, Professor of Modern European History, Cambridge)
  • Not a narrative history, but an explicit thematical approach in a series of analytical surveys of society, politics, economics, culture, etc., each by a leading scholar at the cutting edge of historiography
  • Chapters linked together by a substantial introduction and conclusion, by internal cross-references, and by a detailed chronological table
  • Coherent, concise, comprehensive, authoritative, provocative and challenging: a book which can't be overlooked
