Review from previous edition From the first edition: `A brilliant blend of synthesis and original insight.' T.C.W. Blanning `. . . includes an impressive amount of detailed information, a good deal of it not to be found in its more obvious competitors.' M.S. Anderson, Times Literary Supplement `This is a most complete and comprehensive study of 19th century Europe. It is scholarly yet readable and will be invaluable in the teaching of undergraduates for this period. It will be placed on the 'highly recommended' reading list.' Professor Paul Preston, Queen Mary College `An invaluable overview which gives full justice to 'history in the broad' for this important period. We have long needed an up-to-date treatment of the 19th Century which integrates new work with the long-established themes.' Dr J Stevenson, Department of History, University of Sheffield `Thoroughly first class effort at comprehensive interpretation - particularly impressive I think on cultural-intellectual aspect.' R T Shannon, University of Swansea `. . . a formidable achievement . . . the coverage is succinct and clear . . . the detailed treatment of particular themes is as satisfactory as the general arrangement of the work . . . the overwhelming impression is of a subtle intelligence at work and the result is an excellent and comprehensive study.' Jeremy Black, Times Higher Educational Supplement From the second edition: `This is by far the best general text on C19th Curope, rich in detail, clear in structure and with a useful bibliography. The new edition is far more attractive that its predecessor.' Dr David Laven, Lecturer, University of Reading `As well as discussing the necessary political events of the century, the book has much to say about cultural changes, education, urbanisation, and economic change.' Contemporary Review, 29/11/1996
