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.

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.
