The Studies in European History
series offers a guide to developments in a field of history that has become
increasingly specialized with the sheer volume of new research and literature
now produced. Each book has three main
objectives. The primary purpose is to
offer an informed assessment of opinion on a key episode or theme in European
history. Second, each title presents a
distinct interpretation and conclusions from someone who is closely involved
with current debates in the field.
Third, it provides students and teachers with a succinct introduction to
the topic, with the essential information necessary to understand it and the
literature being discussed. Equipped
with an annotated bibliography and other aids to study, each book provides an
ideal starting point to explore important events and processes that have shaped
Europe’s history from the sixteenth century
to the present day.
Books in the series introduce students to
historical approaches which in some cases are very new and which, in the normal
course of things, would take many years to filter down to textbooks. By presenting history’s cutting edge, we hope
that the series will demonstrate some of the excitement that historians, like
scientists, feel as they work on the frontiers of their subject. The series also has an important contribution
to make in publicising what historians are doing, and making it accessible to
students and scholars in this and related disciplines.
