The European Way: European Societies during the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries

Synopsis

A good social history of Europe has yet to be written though, given the developments over the last few decades, this seems more urgent than ever before. This volume presents an important step forward in that it brings together eight internationally known social historians from Europe and Israel, each of whom offer an overview of some key themes in European history during the last two centuries. While dealing with the great changes of this period, the authors reveal the commonalities that link European societies together but also important differences at a national level.

Hartmut Kaelble is Professor of Social History at the Humboldt University, Berlin.
