In 1914, the French poet Charles Peguy wrote that the world had changed more since he started going to school in the 1880s than during the two previous millennia. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
This main strength of this collection is the variety of topics covered, and although some of the essays are more readable and (to me) more interesting than others, the general standard is high. None of the essays left me completely mystified by their content - and because of this they would probably all make good introductions for someone studying the history of class, the history of art, etc. However, I felt that I was getting a lot more out of the essays which covered topics which I had studied previously. The highlights were the introduction, the essay on post-war politics, and the chapter on the rise and fall of modernism. A highly recommended book.

27 of 28 people found the following review helpful By Kurt Messick HALL OF FAME on 14 July 2004
Format: Hardcover
Blanning's text on the history of modern Europe starts in the last eighteenth century, with the beginning of the French Revolution, often acknowledged by scholars today as a watershed event in the formation of modern Europe. The ramifications of this event led not only to political and military change throughout the continent of Europe (and, by extension of influence, the rest of the world), but also had profound impact on art, literature, music, philosophy, church and all else that comprises European society.
Blanning, a professor of history at Cambridge, provided editorial direction for the text, and also contributed one of the chapters of the book. The topics and chapters are overlapping, sometimes focused upon a particular theme (Warfare in Europe since 1918, by Richard Overy, is one such example) or along broad topical lines (Industrialisation of Modern Europe, 1750-1914, by Clive Trebilcock is representative here).
The first chapter is devoted to politics from the French Revolution to the First World War. John Roberts examines in this chapter politics internal to various nations as well as the foreign relations among the European states, culminating first in the Congress of Vienna after the Napoleonic era, to its final breakdown in the First World War. The changing face of politics across the European continent in terms of increasingly democratic structures and a lessening of royal and aristocratic government is a common theme. These themes are carried forward in essays on the reordering of European society (Pamela Pilbeam), the upheavals during the interwar period (Paul Preston), changes in recent European society (Richard Bessel) and the final, up-to-date analysis by David Reynolds.
