Description:

A new history text for twentieth-century European history courses, this volume is organised chronologically around major themes to emphasise political and diplomatic history as well as carefully integrating social and cultural perspectives. Rather than viewing history from an outdated perspective coloured by Cold War ideology, Brose discusses topics from a contemporary point of view, looking backw at the impact of major events on Europe.
