Themes in Modern European History, 1890-1945 by Paul Hayes
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This collection of essays traces the important issues during this period and sets them in the context of what had hitherto been seen as the norms of political, economic and social life. The essays deal with continuity - or lack of it - with the past and the rapid breaking of the threads which normally bind the lives of one generation to its predecessors and successors. Emphasis is on cultural change; the shifting balance of European, and world, power which led to the Cold War and post-Cold War period is closely examined. Linking together developments in society, the economy, politics and culture, this volume elucidates the very different paths followed by the major European states. Edward Acton, Nicholas Atkin, Philip Bell, Michael Biddiss, Paul Hayes
