9780415628648: The European World 1500–1800: An Introduction to Early Modern History

The European World 1500-1800 provides a concise and authoritative textbook for the centuries between the Renaissance and the French Revolution. It presents early modern Europe not as a mere transitional phase, but a dynamic period worth studying in its own right. Written by an experienced team of specialists, and derived from a perennially successful undergraduate course, it offers a student-friendly introduction to all major themes and processes of early modern history.

Structured in four parts dealing with socio-economic, religious, cultural and political issues, it adopts a deliberately broad geographical perspective: Western and Central Europe receive particular attention, but dedicated chapters also explore the wider global context. For this thoroughly revised and improved second edition, the authors have added three new chapters on ‘Politics and Government’, ‘Impact of War' and ‘Revolution’

Specially designed to assist learning, The European World 1500-1800 features:

  • state-of-the-art surveys of key topics written by an international team of historians
  • suggestions for seminar discussion and further reading
  • extracts from primary sources and generous illustrations, including maps
  • a glossary of key terms and concepts
  • a chronology of major events
  • a full index of persons, places and subjects
  • a fully-featured companion website, enhanced for this new edition

The European World 1500-1800 will be essential reading for all students embarking on the discovery of the early modern period.

About the Author:

Beat Kumin is Professor of Early Modern European History at the University of Warwick. A Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and member of the AHRC Peer Review College, his previous works include Drinking Matters: Public Houses and Social Exchange in Early Modern Central Europe and (as editor) Political Space in Pre-Industrial Europe.

Review:

‘An informative, synthetic account of the major themes in early modern European history. The authors introduce readers to an array of "histories" (social, economic, religious, etc.) which they may not have encountered before and encourage further specialised reading . . . the illustrative examples are useful and pertinent.’
Stephen Bowd, University of Edinburgh

‘This impressive textbook provides a firm basis for any further student research. Easy to read, it delivers in-depth considerations of the most important developments of the European early modern period.’
Renate Dürr, University of Tübingen

‘Didactically, it is all brilliantly executed, especially compared to some German textbooks and it is easy to read, without being simplistic.’
Wolfgang Reinhard, Zeitschrift für Historische Forschung

‘One of the best introductions to this period I have seen.'
Retha Warnicke, Arizona State University

'A student-friendly text, well written by excellent scholars who make the reader want to turn the page. The European World, 1500-1800, contains analytical chapters on a variety of both traditional and recent historical topics while excelling in comparative descriptions of life throughout Europe, between different centuries, and between Europe and the wider world.'
Richard M. Golden, University of North Texas

This is a well-organized, thoughtful and thought-provoking survey of a seminal period in the history of Europe. It draws upon current scholarship to provide a useful overview the major themes of early modern European history. Its thematic approach is especially helpful in getting students to think about the past in new and fruitful ways.
Christine Kooi, Louisiana State University.
