The Wiley-Blackwell Dictionary of Modern European History Since 1789

The Wiley-Blackwell Dictionary of Modern European History Since 1789 is an authoritative and highly accessible reference to the major people, events, and issues that have shaped Europe's development from the time of the French Revolution to the opening of the 21st century. This comprehensive guide features almost one thousand encyclopedic entries, written in collaboration by a trio of distinguished historians. The authors move well beyond basic definitions and descriptions to provide readers with a richer analytical understanding of the wider significance of historical events as they unfolded over the course of two centuries. Associated links and connections are revealed through an extensive series of cross-references. A sequence of maps charting the evolution of modern European states offers further clarity. The work covers the whole of continental Europe, as well as relevant aspects of the British experience.

Lively and authoritative, The Wiley-Blackwell Dictionary of Modern European History Since 1789 is an indispensable reference guide to the broad sweep of historical events and experiences that have shaped the Europe we see today.
