5.0 out of 5 stars A Concise History of Europe in 400 pages, 10 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: European History For Dummies (Paperback)
This book is an excellent example of history made more approachable and introductory to people new in this field of study. The book is well structured with its sections focusing on specific eras and chapters concerned with important and significant events. The book is wide-ranging concerning the countries it covers. Russia, Sweden and to an extent the Ottoman Empire are treated will equal importance as the Western Countries, which is at times hard to find in a general study of history.
Using descriptive narrative writing and in many cases irony, the topics at hand are brought closer to the reader making it a pleasant and fascinatingly interesting read. I highly recommend this book to anyone new to the field, for revision or out of interest sake. A brilliant introduction to more than 2000 years of European History.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: European History For Dummies (Paperback)
This series (and particularly Sean Lang's style) are the perfect intermediate step between curious ignorance and deeper understanding following further research stimulated by the short, punchy, amusing paragraphs
