Description

The period stretching from the Reformation to the twenty-first century proved a time of radical change for Europe-and with the continent's far-reaching influence, for the entire world as well. This course provides a greater understanding of the role played by such influential figures as Luther, Calvin, Napoleon, and Stalin, among others. Further, the importance of this epoch in European history is expounded upon in an analysis that will shed new light on the present and the future of global politics.

Professional reviews

"This second installment of an "ancient to modern" course in European history can be appreciated on its own. A cursory treatment of earlier periods makes the flow of events in those sections admirably easy to follow. Professor Hosking gives much more detail as he approaches the present, which is welcome but harder to follow. Still, the material is well organized and presented. Some "uhms" and audible page-turning aren't bothersome, but occasional bouts of a halting delivery, sometimes almost word by word, as if the professor hadn't formulated his thoughts, can irritate--but not enough to spoil this solid course. An illustrated booklet gives the lectures, abridged, and a bibliography; supplemental online material and a "final" were not seen by AUDIOFILE. W.M. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
