This is a textbook that has been used in the past for University courses on Modern European History It represents a comprehensive survey of the period between the Napoleonic Wars and the start of WWI encompassing all major economic social demographic political and cultural aspects of this critical periodIt is excellent as a reference and as a supplementary reading rich with supporting uantitative analysis and primary source evidence and providing very handy genealogical tables of dynasties of the main ruling houses and a very helpful and uite detailed timeline The scholarship is first rate and the book is thoroughly well researched some characters historical events and themes such as the advent and subseuent structural evolution of the Industrial Revolution the politics of Bismarck and his central role in European history the Imperialist colonial expansion of the European powers the relationship between Liberalism Conservatism and Socialism in the individual European countries the problems associated with the multinational nature of the Habsburg Empire and the emergence of Pan Slavism in Eastern Europe are treated at a very good level of detailsHowever I must say that there are parts of the book where I would have preferred space and effort being allocated to analysis and interpretation rather than to a dry and sometimes redundant recitation of factsfactlets that does not really add much to the overall narrative and that risk drowning the appreciation of the main long term trends into a myriad of small scale events There are also some critically important episodes such as the Boer War and the Crimean War the progressive disintegration of the Ottoman Empire and the Russian Revolution of 1905 just to name of few examples that should have been developed in depthThis book did work for me most of the times as this particular period is together with Late Antiuity and the Middle Ages one of the periods of most interest to me however I am not sure that it would be really suitable as an introductory book to readers with no prior specific knowledge which is implicitly assumed by the author It is in any case a good book to keep in your shelves for future reference and I must say that there were a few interesting things that I learned especially in specific areas such as economic developments and trade patterns in post Napoleonic Europe35 stars rounded up to 4 The Utter Zoo Alphabet your shelves for future reference and I must say that there were a few interesting things that I learned especially in specific areas such as economic developments and trade patterns in post Napoleonic Europe35 stars rounded up to 4

Barricades and Borders Europe 1800 1914 Short Oxford History of the Modern World Free download ✓ 5 Ic history the book incorporates the results of recent research on topics such as population movements the accumulation of capital social mobility and intellectual and artistic development. I read this one for a university course on 19th century European history It s not bad There are a lot of details and plenty of information but it s hard to digest it all especially since there s no real indication of whether or not certain events are significant than others I wish the author included a summary at the beginning of each chapter which identified the key concepts and historical events The author throws out dates and names and mentions events without really defining or explaining them first He made references to things that didn t come up in the text previously which as someone without a history background I found really confusing So all in all this is a comprehensive text as far as I can tell but I think it s best read as a supplement to introductory material on the topic as it can be somewhat confusing and overwhelming if you re new to the subject
