Series Palgrave History of Europe

This history of Europe from the French Revolution to the First World War weaves together political, economic, social and cultural developments. Its themes include the relationship between state, civil society and the citizen; the emergence of mass politics (including women's emancipation movements); the impact of economic growth on society, politics and culture; and the development of identities (including gender, class and nation). While discussing events within the great European powers, Michael Rapport also ties the experience of smaller countries into the narrative.

MICHAEL RAPPORT is a Reader in European History at the University of Glasgow, UK.
