A Companion to Eighteenth-Century Europe

Okładka książki: A Companion to Eighteenth-Century Europe
A Companion to Eighteenth-Century Europe, Peter H. Wilson, Wiley-Blackwell, ISBN: 978-1-4051-3947-2

This Companion contains 31 essays by leading international scholars to provide an overview of the key debates on eighteenth-century Europe. It considers not just major western European states, but also the often neglected countries of eastern and northern Europe. Placing Europe within an international context, contributors investigate key areas of society, economics, culture, and political development. The resource concludes with the French and other European revolutions that brought the century to a close, both chronologically and as regards the Ancien Régime.
