Product Description

Review

"The nature of the writing is impressive, and any library owning this volume, and other Blackwell Companions, will be a rich library indeed. This book works well as a text for further study at undergraduate level and beyond; it works well as a collection of enjoyable reads; and most importantly, it works well as a reference resource and study aid." ( Reference Reviews)

"The volume includes a wealth of interesting and useful information. It provides a clear and concise introduction to many important topics in the history of nineteenth–century Europe. The helpful bibliographic essays at the close of each chapter and the comprehensive bibliography at the end of the book should provide students with additional resources as they pursue their research." (H–Net Reviews)

"A scintillating volume, full of detailed and thought–provoking contributions." (English Historical Review)

"Readers who bring to this book a reasonably strong background and an open mind will be well rewarded." (Choice)

From the Back Cover

This Companion provides an overview of European history during the long nineteenth century, from 1789 to 1914. Consisting of 32 chapters written by leading international scholars, it balances coverage of political, diplomatic, and international history with discussion of economic, social, and cultural concerns. The volume is divided into six parts, exploring the idea of Europeanness and the construction of European identity; the transition from an agricultural society to one based on industrial production and international trade; political developments, including the age of revolution, labor movements, and the role of state and nation; intellectual history, for example the new ideologies of liberalism and socialism; themes in cultural history, such as literacy, science, policing, and sexuality; and the development of the international system of great powers, and the related questions of war, empire, and colonialism.

Throughout, the contributors cover both Eastern and Western European states, including Britain, and pay considerable attention to smaller countries as well as to the great powers. They also explicitly compare particular phenomena and developments across Europe as a whole.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an edited edition, I often find it difficult to fully invest in these books as the subject and opinion can change so drastically from one article to the next. However, I thoroughly find it an interesting read and it is extremely helpful when studying the period.

A must have for any historian, experienced or just beginning to delve.
