History of Eastern Europe 1740-1918 by Ian D. Armour
Book DescriptionThis book is an authoritative inquiry into some of the most turbulent events in the history of Eastern Europe. By considering three key themes: modernism, nationalism and empire, Armour analyzes how the foundations of nationalism developed from within an environment of widespread social turmoil. This authoritative history of Eastern Europe spans the turbulent years from 1740 to 1918. It traces how the big powers, most notably the Habsburg, Ottoman and Russian Empires, jostled for control in the region and examines the roots of nationalism. Split between five main parts and following a chronological narrative, A History of Eastern Europe 2nd ed offers an accessible introduction to the complex and fascinating history of eastern Europe. Taking full account of the most recent literature in the area, and including a new introduction, this second edition is an update to an essential textbook in the field.
