    History of Europe in the 19th Century (= Neue Fischer Weltgeschichte, Vol. 6)

    According to the editors’ guidelines of the Neue Fischer Weltgeschichte, the book will be a work of synthesis for a broad academic as well as lay readership. The 19th century is to be understood literally, hence the period covered will be 1800-1900. The book will be arranged in five chronological chapters, preceded by a general overview of the whole period. The book ends with a reflection on the changing place of Europe in world history during the 19th century. Political, social, economic, and cultural history will be dealt with in approximately equal shares. ‘Europe’ itself will be treated as a multifaceted entity (not necessarily a community!) whose boundaries and characteristic features were defined differently depending on the varying positions of countries, peoples, social or religious groups under consideration.
