Each volume provides a wide-ranging overview of the period it covers. Although the emphasis is clearly on political history, the major issues affecting the economy, society, religion, culture and ideas are also given appropriate treatment. Sufficient detail is included to ensure that a sound basic knowledge and understanding is acquired. This title assesses the key areas of nineteenth-century European history in an accessible and progressive way. The author examines the key political, economic and social developments in Italy, Germany, France, Russia and Austria-Hungary. Issues and events such as the 1848 Revolutions, Italian and German Unification and the origins of the First World War are analysed and explained through an up-to-date narrative and carefully structured activities.
