Cover copy - Early Modern Europe 1500 - 1789 - H G Koenigsberger

Back cover

¿To compress three dramatic centuries into little more than 300 pages is a formidable undertaking, but Professor Koenigsberger has accomplished it with enviable skill and professionalism.¿

Christopher F Black, History

Since its publication in 1987 early Modern Europe (1500 - 1789) has become a bestselling, well-loved classic. Opening at the climax of the Renaissance - when an educated, city-based laity began to bring their special demands and sensibilities to bear on earlier traditions the book chronicles the dawning of a new age on the continent.

Combining the freshness of an interpretive essay with the breadth of wide-ranging historical synthesis, Koenigsberger paints a detailed picture of the Reformation and its significance as increasingly powerful nations began to intrude on their subjects¿ public and private lives. The text ends with a discussion of the conflicts between personal freedom and the rights of authority that shattered forever the old European order.

Front flap

Early Modern Europe 1500 - 1789 was originally published as the central volume in the bestselling illustrated Series, ¿A History of Europe¿, edited by H G Koenigsberger and Asa Briggs, charting Europe¿s history from the collapse of the Roman Empire to modern times.

¿In an age of specialists, only an historian of exceptional courage and learning would attempt to scan fourteen centuries of European history in two relatively brief volumes and expect to emerge with his reputation intact. Professor Koenigsberger is such an historian.¿

Howell A Lloyd, Journal of Ecclesiastical History
