Themes in Modern European History, 18901945 brings together an international team of scholars to address an eclectic range of developments and issues in European history in the period between 1890 and the end of the Second World War. This lively collection of essays adopts a thematic approach, in order to explore comprehensively a period of great change and upheaval in Europe.

Concentrating on the main powers in Europe, from Germany, Italy and Russia, to the UK and France, the book links together developments in society, the economy, politics and culture, and establishes them in their political framework. Specially commissioned chapters discuss key issues such as:

  • popular culture
  • the relationship between East and West
  • intellectual and cultural trends
  • the origins and impact of two world wars
  • communism, dictatorship and liberal democracy
  • the relationship of Europe with the wider world.

Including a chronology, maps and a glossary, as well as suggestions for further reading, this comprehensive volume is an invaluable and authoritative resource for students of modern European history.
