Modern Europe, 1789-present by Asa Briggs

Book Description

Now covering the whole of Europe from the French Revolution to the present day, this major new edition has been completely revised and brought up-to-date. The approach embraces the whole continent from both national and regional perspectives, and combines political survey with grass roots 'people' history. Bringing this history vividly to life, the authors use a very broad range of sources including memoirs, archives, letters, songs and newspapers. In particular, there is new treatment of the following themes:* Religion and the modern Papacy * Immigration in Europe and relationships between minority and majority groups * UNESCO * The European Bill of Rights * The seeds of conflict in Bosnia and Croatia * Europe's relations with the wider world, with particular attention to the Middle East and Japan.
