Europe and the British Geographical Imagination, 1760-1830

Paul Stock

  • Explores what literate British people understood by the word 'Europe' in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries
  • Utilises primary sources which were widely-read and influential in the period, but which have been neglected by historians - geographical reference works, textbooks, dictionaries, and encyclopaedias
  • Traces the history of ideas in non-elite contexts to discern widespread British attitudes to Europe, and not just the views of a few familiar prominent intellectuals
