The European World 1500-1800 provides a concise and authoritative textbook for the centuries between the Renaissance and the French Revolution. It presents early modern Europe not as a mere transition phase, but a dynamic period worth studying in its own right.

This fully updated fourth edition is structured in six parts - Starting Points, Society and Economy, Religion, The Wider World, Culture, Politics - and includes two new chapters on the Environment and Food and Drink Cultures.

Specially designed to assist learning, The European World 1500-1800 features:

  • expert surveys of key topics written by an international group of historians
  • suggestions for seminar discussion and further reading
  • extracts from primary sources and generous illustrations, including maps
  • a glossary of key terms and concepts
  • a full index of persons, places and subjects
  • and a companion website, offering colour images, direct access to primary materials, and interactive features which highlight key events and locations discussed in the volume.

The European World 1500-1800 is essential reading for all students embarking on the discovery of the early modern period.
