This volume, part of The Short Oxford History of the Modern World, is a survey of European history from the coup d' 'etat of Napoleon Bonaparte in France to the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand at Sarajevo, which led to the First World War. It concentrates on the twin themes of revolution and nationalism, which often combined in the early part of the century but which increasingly became rival creeds. Going beyond traditional political and diplomatic history, the book incorporates the results of recent research on population movements, the expansion of markets, the accumulation of capital, social mobility, education, changing patterns of leisure, religious practices, and intellectual and artistic developments.

From the second edition:
`This is by far the best general text on C19th Curope, rich in detail, clear in structure and with a useful bibliography. The new edition is far more attractive that its predecessor.'
Dr David Laven, Lecturer, University of Reading
`As well as discussing the necessary political events of the century, the book has much to say about cultural changes, education, urbanisation, and economic change.'
