Description - Europe 1850-1914 by Jonathan Sperber

The second half of the nineteenth century was an era of relative tranquillity and progress It was an age of free acquisition and disposition of private property among individuals and families, in a phrase, a bourgeois era.

Encompassing in his account the entire European continent, the author describes:- the structures and processes of economic growth- the creation of an urban-industrial society- the rise and transformation of voluntary associations- the changing structures of gender and the position of women- the triumphs and defeats of positivism and empiricism in the natural and social sciences- artists search for new forms of expression- the rise of mass politics and the growth of nationalism- the changing relations and scope of actions of the Great Powers.
