The Making of Modern Europe, 1648–1780
Reader Ratings & Reviews
This reissue of a classic textbook has been revised and updated with a new introduction by the author. Geoffrey Treasure provides a thoroughly comprehensive account of the European experience at a time when so much of what is today identified as 'modern' began to take shape.
Discussing key issues of the period, The Making of Modern Europe, 1647–1980 examines:
- the evolution of the developing society
- detailed studies of the people, their environment, attitudes and beliefs
- economic aspects
- the growth of the states
- politics, war and diplomacy
- religion, intellectualism and science.
This work provides an excellent grounding for the study of seventeenth and eighteenth-century European history.
