This bestselling, and immensely successful book was originally published in Denys Hay's famous Series, 'A General History of Europe', and rapidly established itself as a standard introduction to the period, which saw the apogee of European power. In these sixty-five years, Europe's political and economic domination of the globe came to a climax - and then crumbled. Europe's internal divisions and failure to solve her own problems brought her twice to the brink of self-destruction. European quarrels detonated the two World Wars, and the struggle to dominate Europe dictated the course of both. In this fascinating and bestselling account, Professor John Roberts explores the contrasts and contradictions between a socially creative and politically destructive Europe. Social, economic and cultural history are integrated within a firm framework of political narrative; and the major themes around which the text is organised are presented through sharp and striking detail. Fully revised as a Second Edition in 1989, Europe 1880 - 1845 remains essential reading for anyone interested in the climactic years of imperial Europe, and in the roots of her postwar rennaisance.
