    One thought on “The Oxford History of Modern Europe”

    1. The chapter 'Warfare in Europe since 1918' by Richard Overy is pretty good.I like the way the author assembles his thoughts and puts the progressive logical structure in his essay.I hope to read more of Richard Overy in the future!

    2. This review focuses on chapters one to five which provide an overview of the nineteenth century. Further chapters to come!Oxford University Press have made a specialty of selling an extensive library of multi author histories. The editor of this volume, Timothy Blanning has himself taken on the task of producing a number of these, including general editorship of the multivolume Short Oxford History of Europe. In his introduction to those volumes he highlights the challenges of depth and breadth. [...]

    3. This is a collection of essays by eminent academic historians, mainly professors at British universities, each one focussing on a different aspect of history since the French revolution. This fact leads to both the strengths and weaknesses of the book.On the plus side, I felt there was a lot of insight here, and identification of interesting patterns of change in politics, economics, culture, and warfare. Looking at a specific theme across Europe made for a less parochial view and helped me to p [...]

    4. This is a collection of essays from Historians in their own specialties. Some are absolutely wonderful. Some are not. Many are too dry, yet others have some glaring mistakes. Few are typos, sadly at least one is a glaring inaccuracy (The people of Germany are not descended from the Goths and Visigoths who burned Rome), most seem to be the misuse of words. I am unsure if they were testing their editors and colleagues to see if they noticed or not or if in their attempt to argue they inadvertently [...]

    5. This is a helpful, quick survey of the major trends and movements in European history from the French Revolution through the modern day. It should be read in conjunction with other more dense treatments, for example Merriman.
