Written by a team of academic experts under the general editorship of Dr. John Stevenson, the text is objective and authoritative yet accessible to the general reader. Each chapter looks at the history of the time from a multiplicity of vantage points. Early chapters address the ancient economy of Greece, philosophy and religion, education and learning and art and architecture. Later sections explore the politics of each period including conflicts and alliances, wars and truces, the rise and fall of nations, and accessions and successions of heads of state. Other topics introduced along the way include science and technology, intellectual and political thought, literature, art, music and popular culture of the times.
An illustrated time line allows readers to gain an overview of the period and serves as a useful introduction to each chapter. Fully illustrated with archival photographs and specially commissioned maps, The History of Europe provides a visual tapestry of key events and those that shaped them to emerge into the changing face of Europe today.
