This second edition is intended as a concise yet comprehensive survey of the significant themes of European history during a century of both great achievement and unimaginable barbarism. Although the text is short enough to permit instructors to assign additional outside readings, it will nevertheless serve as a good general introduction. In its user-friendly format, the narrative is divided into four parts, two before the outbreak of World War 2 and two thereafter. Each part is introduced by an overview that summarises the main themes of the period covered. Additionally, each of the four parts is further divided into three chapters of roughly equal length. The liberal use throughout the text of maps, tables and illustrations will greatly enhance the student reader's comprehension. Each chapter is framed by a chronology of events and a suggested list of books and films. A liost of abbreviations and acronyms, a list of additional sources for European history concludes the text.
