Synopsis

Themes in Modern European History 1780-1830 is an authoritative and lively exploration of a period dominated by events which have shaped modern Europe. In a series of articles, six leading academics present some controversial conclusions:
* the east/west contrast in Europe today has more to do with responses to the French Revolution of 1789 than the Russian Revolution of 1917
* the conservative Europe of 1814 was the product of the Romantic imagnation, not a `Restoration' of the old regime

Spanning political, social, economic and demographic facets of revolutions, this is an indispensable textbook for all students of the nineteenth century, and for all those interested in understanding the nature of Europe today.
