The European World 1500-1800 provides a concise and authoritative textbook for the centuries between the Renaissance and the French Revolution. It presents early modern Europe not as a mere transition phase, but a dynamic period worth studying in its own right.

Written by an experienced team of specialists, and derived from a successful undergraduate course, it offers a student-friendly introduction to all major themes and processes of early modern history. This fully updated fourth edition is structured in six parts - Starting Points, Society and Economy, Religion, The Wider World, Culture, Politics, Epilogue - and includes two new chapters on the Environment and Food and Drink Cultures.

Specially designed to assist learning, The European World 1500-1800 features:

- expert surveys of key topics written by an international group of historians

- suggestions for seminar discussion and further reading

- extracts from primary sources and generous illustrations, including maps

- a glossary of key terms and concepts

- a full index of persons, places and subjects

- and a companion website, offering colour images, direct access to primary materials, and interactive features which highlight key events and locations discussed in the volume.

The European World 1500-1800 is essential reading for all students embarking on the discovery of the early modern period.
