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.
