Early Modern Europe, 1450–1789

2nd edition

"The title of this book, and perhaps also of the course for which you are reading it, is Early Modern Europe. The dates in the title inform you about the chronological span covered (1450-1789), but they do not explain the designation "early modern." Thatterm was developed by historians seeking to refine an intellectual model first devised during this very period, when scholars divided European history into three parts: ancient (to the end of the Roman Empire in the west in the fifth century), medieval (from the fifth century to the fifteenth), and modern (from the fifteenth century to their own time). In this model, the break between the Middle Ages and the modern era was marked by the first voyage of Columbus (1492) and the beginning of the Protestant Reformation (1517), though some scholars, especially those who focused on Italy, set the break somewhat earlier with the Italian Renaissance. This three-part periodization became extremely influential, and as the modern era grew longer and longer, historians began to divide it into "early modern" - from the Renaissance or Columbus to the French Revolution in 1789 - and what we might call "truly modern" - from the French Revolution to whenever they happened to be writing"--

Zitat
"Merry Wiesner-Hanks' admirably up-to-date survey of early modern Europe succeeds in fulfilling a very challenging remit just about as well as one could wish. Its thematic structure, with a threaded narrative as required, represents the best way of imposing order and coherence on what can be an intractable mass of themes, problems, and divergent national histories. The difficult task of balancing breadth with depth is accomplished skilfully, and the text is particularly strong on gender and social relations. Students will undoubtedly appreciate its accessible unaffected style, as well as its range of well chosen (and often pleasingly unfamiliar) visual sources." Peter Marshall, University of Warwick "This impressive synthesis consolidates Merry Wiesner-Hanks' reputation as a master synthesizer of early modern European history. In thirteen thematic chapters she manages to infuse all the usual topics with fresh life, while seamlessly incorporating recent advances in gender history, global connections, and cultural analysis. She refers, when needed, to controversial historical interpretations and punctuates her text with brief, strategically-placed, source documents. This will be a useful account for anyone interested in the period, and its clear prose will be accessible even to entry-level students." William Beik, Emory University "Its structure is intended to present a student friendly format ... Visitors to [the] excellent website can not only discover all the relevant details but may also download a sample chapter ... Her discussion and ensuing definitions are enlightening ... Merry E Wiesner-Hanks is of the opinion that she has written a book not the book on her subject; I think she is too modest, there is very little reason why this book should not be considered the seminal work for A level and first year under-graduates ... she resists the temptation to present merely the narrative but deals with the arguments and perspectives of historians both past and present ... this is a book to keep by you and dip in and out at will; the trouble is once you start dipping it's hard to stop." The Journal of the Open University History Society '... indispensable works of the synthesis and as original interpretation of the European past ... her heart beats for the role of women in history ... She has a good writing style. Each reader is encouraged to think about continuities as well as changes across this formative period. Her further readings to each chapter invites the reader to become absorbed in special books to the subjects.' The European Legacy "As an introductory survey of European history from the invention of the printing press to the French Revolution, it admirably synthesizes an immense array of disparate themes and approaches while maintaining reader attention ... Throughout, Wiesner's style is engaging and intentionally accessible to the current generation of students." Dwight E. R. Ten Huisen, H-German
