Covering European history from the invention of the printing press to the French Revolution, the third edition of this best-selling textbook is thoroughly updated with new scholarship and an emphasis on environmental history, travel and migration, race and cultural blending, and the circulation of goods and knowledge. Summaries, timelines, maps, illustrations, and discussion questions illuminate the narrative and support the student. Enhanced online content and sections on sources and methodology give students the tools they need to study early modern European history. Leading historian Merry Wiesner-Hanks skillfully balances breadth and depth of coverage to create a strong narrative, paying particular attention to the global context of European developments. She integrates discussion of gender, class, regional, and ethnic differences across the entirety of Europe and its overseas colonies as well as the economic, political, religious, and cultural history of the period.

  • Fully revised to bring readers up-to-date on the latest scholarship on early modern Europe and introduce them to developing areas of study, such as environmental history
  • Features coverage of both eastern and western Europe, and places European history in a global context, to give students a holistic understanding
  • Wiesner-Hanks skilfully integrates discussion of gender, class, regional and ethnic differences with economic, political, religious and cultural history, engaging students and promoting nuanced comprehension of the period
