This reissue of a classic textbook has been revised and updated with a new introduction by the author. Geoffrey Treasure provides a thoroughly comprehensive account of the European experience at a time when so much of what is today identified as 'modern' began to take shape.

Discussing key issues of the period, The Making of Modern Europe, 1647–1980 examines:

  • the evolution of the developing society
  • detailed studies of the people, their environment, attitudes and beliefs
  • economic aspects
  • the growth of the states
  • politics, war and diplomacy
  • religion, intellectualism and science.

This work provides an excellent grounding for the study of seventeenth and eighteenth-century European history.
