The concept of cultural history has in the last few decades come to the fore of historical research into early modern Europe. Due in no small part to the pioneering work of Peter Burke, the tools of the cultural historian are now routinely brought to bear on every aspect of history, and have transformed our understanding of the past. First published in 1978, this study examines the broad sweep of pre-industrial Europe's popular culture. From the world of the professional entertainer to the songs, stories, rituals and plays of ordinary people, it shows how the attitudes and values of the otherwise inarticulate shaped - and were shaped by - the shifting social, religious and political conditions of European society between 1500 and 1800. This third edition of Peter Burke's groundbreaking study has been published to mark the thirtieth anniversary of the book's publication in 1978. It provides a new introduction reflecting the growth of cultural history, and its increasing influence on 'mainstream' history, as well as an extensive supplementary bibliography which further adds to the information about new research in the area.

Peter Burke is a Professor at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, UK.Review:
'... Burke's is still an erudite and stimulating guide to pre-industrial European culture after thirty years of lively work in the field.' Times Literary Supplement'... probably even more important now than it was in 1978.' Times Higher Education'The study of "popular culture" has come a long way since the first publication of Burke's work. However, it is still the only work offering a European-wide view. This updated, third edition remains a valuable reference point for those interested in early modern European societies.' Historein'Burke's highly readable book remains an excellent introduction to early modern European history.' Sport in History
