Barricades and Borders Europe 1800 1914 Short Oxford History of the Modern World Free download Ö 5 Ic history the book incorporates the results of recent research on topics such as population movements the accumulation of capital social mobility and intellectual and artistic development. I read this one for a university course on 19th century European history It s not bad There are a lot of details and plenty of information but it s hard to digest it all especially since there s no real indication of whether or not certain events are significant than others I wish the author included a summary at the beginning of each chapter which identified the key concepts and historical events The author throws out dates and names and mentions events without really defining or explaining them first He made references to things that didn t come up in the text previously which as someone without a history background I found really confusing So all in all this is a comprehensive text as far as I can tell but I think it s best read as a supplement to introductory material on the topic as it can be somewhat confusing and overwhelming if you re new to the subject

Barricades and Borders Europe 1800 1914 Short Oxford History of the Modern World Free download Ö 5 Now with a substantially revised text and fully updated bibliography this is a comprehensive survey of European history from Napoleon Bonaparte to the First World War It concentrates on th. Such a vast and important seuence of events unfolded during the enlightenment fueled revolutionary fired and reaction smothered nineteenth century that even with fourteen years tacked on at the millennial end in order to stretch Gildea s purview through to the opening days of the First World War the author can only but summarize much of the key elements of this history let alone those important but lesser known developments that transpired outside of the pivotal centers of action Gildea is superb in dealing with France excellent at her neighbors of Great Britain and Germany and praiseworthy as far as the Apennine peninsula is concerned as for the rest however this book works better as a supplement than an introduction Whilst an academic publication Gildea writes pleasingly and authoritatively dashing out the facts and figures numbers and nuances that flesh out the skeletal storyline of tumultuous clashes between anxious liberal democracies bourgeoning bourgeois monarchies bristling iron fisted empires and freshly reformed nations to a one adumbrated throughout by the shadow of Napoleon Bonaparte whilst the heady thick clouds of an industrializing explosion billowed forth in uantity and chromaticity sufficient to both hearten and horrify The final decades of comparative peace and calm at home stand juxtaposed against the furious energy of the parcelling out of the remainder of the globe between the European powers in a rapid fire imperialism that served to heighten national chauvinism when those energies were directed inwards by the sharp crack of a bullet in Sarajevo the murderous capacities of a machine tooled continent were revealed in all their macabre glory Coming into this book I had yet to read an Oxford History publication that I didn t both enjoy and learn from and Barricades and Borders proved no exception
