French History

In this well-known, best-selling book M S Anderson explores the major aspects of European history in the century from the Congress of Vienna to the First World War. More than a narrative of political or other events, this is a series of challenging analytical surveys on a comparative and continent-wide basis. `The Ascendancy of Europe, 1815-1914¿ gives full weight not only to political and economic factors but also to social and intellectual ones.

For the third edition, Professor Anderson has reworked the text, added a new preface and revised introduction and has updated the bibliography.

M S Anderson is Professor Emeritus of International History in the University of London. His many works include, `The Origins of the Modern European State System¿ (1998), `Peter the Great¿ (1995) and `Europe in the Eighteenth Century¿ (1997).
