Europe Since 1870: An International History
'Europe Since 1870' provides a broad synthesis of a long and crowded period of history; a time of confusion and contradiction whose main themes have been provided by great mass movements - liberalism, imperialism, fascism, communism. It is an era that has been dominated by two conflicting concepts - national self-determination and European unity. Professor Joll places these factors in their historical and chronological context and assesses the impact of the intellectual and artistic movements of the period within their political and ideological framework. In particular, he stresses the pre-1914 origins of most of the movements that have influenced the course of contemporary history and demonstrates that, despite the apparent breaks caused by world wars and the communist and fascist revolutions, the European experience has been essentially one of continuity.
