Written by an international team of leading scholars, The Oxford History of Modern Europe traces Europe's turbulent history, from the beginnings of the Revolution in France to the dawn of two world wars to the breakup of the Soviet Union to today's kaleidoscope of nation-states. The achievements (and failures) of key figures from many arenas-politics, technology, warfare, religion, and the arts among them-are drawn vividly, and social, cultural, and economic insights are included alongside the record of geopolitical strife.

The Revolutionary Era, Third Edition, provides a vivid historical account of the forces that shaped early nineteenth-century Europe.

Thoroughly revised and updated in light of recent scholarship, the text introduces compelling perspectives on the French and Industrial Revolutions, integrates new discussions of cultural and social history, and expands coverage of southern and eastern Europe. While preserving the integrity of earlier editions, new coauthor Matthew Levinger broadens the analysis by exploring the everyday experiences of the working classes with those of the political and social elites.

I purchased this for a class. It provides a good introduction to the topic.

As with the review already on this book, I agree there is a lack of any real scholastic or intellectual work in it. This is a survey book, like a beginning freshman entry level survey course. The scholarship is weak, and the analyses is poor. This read more like a freshman english college paper. This book is only good as an introduction, but has no in depth substance of how substantial this period of history is.

Furthermore, the analysis are contradictory. It says that situation A is this but in the same paragraph or on the same page contradicts what was just said about situation A. The arguments in the analysis are not well crafted. It relies on vaguely pointing out what "some" or "other" historians points of view are, but does not actually state their points of view. There aren't enough researched sources used to bolster the author's points of view, they are simply unsupported opinions.

Finally, the grammatical errors are appalling. Apparently the editors did not bother to fix very simple mistakes, such as wrong word tenses. Also, the poor sentence construction, again, makes the paper feel like someone who is writing a college paper for the first time wrote the book. It is awkward, and requires several readings sometimes to actually glean the point. Finally, there are run on sentences and punctuation mistakes that should not be in a published book, even if it is not intended for a scholarly journal.

In this historian's point of view, this is not a good book if you are looking for in depth scholarship, or any meaningful analysis in this period of history. It fails to achieve any sense of understanding or grasp of how momentous the events in this period of are for the landscape of modern Europe, or the modern globe. The only thing this book manages to do is to list the historical events, and put a weak analysis on the end, creating a bad work.

I'm currently trying to read through the "Norton History of Modern Europe" series, and this is the third I've read (and reviewed for amazon). This one, like the others, was an excellent introduction, summarily covering political history as well as cultural and social history. I think the series as a whole, including this book, is a little weak on intellectual history--although that is my strength, so my judgment might be distorted.

This book covers the French Revolution, the era of Napoleon, the industrial revolution, the revolution of 1830, the revolutions of 1848, and the romantic movement. That's a lot of ground in such a brief book, but Breunig and Levinger move through it quickly and concisely.

Among the other books in this series, "The Age of Religious Wars" by Richard S. Dunn and "The Foundations of Early Modern Europe" by Eugene F. Rice, Jr., were excellent, but I skipped Leonard Krieger's "Kings and Philosophers" because the writing nearly killed me. (I've started Norman Rich's "Tradition and Progress," and so far it's excellent, maybe the best of the series.) Each of the 3 books I've read stands well on its own.

HOWEVER--even though I think reading the whole series forms a very good project for anyone interested enough to do it--for about the same cash, John P. McKay's textbook, "A History of Western Society: Since 1300," is much better for students, and even for adult readers I actually recommend it above this series. Boorstin's trilogy beginning with "The Discoverers" emphasizes intellectual history, and is a great pleasure to read; I strongly recommend checking it out. Finally, I haven't read the classic histories by Eric Hobsbawm, but they probably make stimulating reading, even for people already rather familiar with modern history.
