Description

The development of modern Europe, through such events as the Reformation and Counter--Reformation, the Enlightenment, the French Revolution, and the rise of industrial capitalism, is often seen in terms of the triumph of individualism. Yet the precise stages in the evolution of the European individual remain one of the most elusive aspects of the regiona s history. In this broad and thought--provoking investigation, Aaron Gurevich, one of Russiaa s leading historians, examines the growth of individual consciousness through European history, and assesses its impact on key social and political events.
