Emerging from the convergence of intellectual history and cultural studies, European Culture Since 1848 is the first book that meets the challenge of the new cultural history by offering a thematic survey of modern European culture that synthesizes new directions and interpretive debates. James Winders explores the themes in clear and accessible language and fills a longstanding need for a wide-ranging, thematic study of modern European cultural history, including popular culture, with long-overdue emphasis on the second half of the 20th century.
