Western Europe by Max Schulze
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Following on from the phenomenally successful Twentieth Century Britain by Paul Johnson, this is a major new introductory survey on modern Europe, written in conjunction with the Economic History Society. The twenty-two chapters provide (a) a history of economic and social change in the period; (b) thematic discussions of the main topics arising; and (c) detailed studies by nation and area, to explain Western Europe's unprecedented rise from the ashes of war to 50 years of peace and prosperity. *Traces the development of European economy from the early moves towards European integration after 1945 to the contentious issue of monetary union in the 1990s *Considers the forces of economic and social change over the long term: topics explored including demographic change, urbanisation, migration, education and the welfare state *Provides detailed studies of the experience of individual nations on a country by country basis from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean *Large format treatment with numerous "features" including case studies, diagrams, halftone illustrations, panel items and detailed analyses *Written for a multidisciplinary, non-specialist readership (the text does not assume a sophisticated understanding of economics)
