Europe, 1880-1945

Front Cover
Longman, 1989 - Europe - 631 pages
The first new edition since 1967 of this standard introductory textbook, this has been significantly rewritten and expanded, and fully revised. It deals with a crucial period of European history during which her economic and political domination of the world reached a climax and then crumbled. Social, economic and cultural aspects are integrated within a framework of political narrative, and the book aims to present major themes through sharp detail rather than abstract generalizations.

Very well covered period. I know that some people find this book loses them about half way through but if you can stay with it then it is the perfect book for a balanced overall view of what took place in this time frame. Solid. Read full review
