From the coup d'etat of Napoleon Bonaparte in France to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand at Sarajevo, which marked the brink of World War I, this volume surveys Europe's turbulent history during the 19th-century from a unique vantage point. It concentrates on the twin themes of revolution and nationalism, showing how these forces interacted and counteracted with one another, ultimately becoming rival creeds. Going beyond traditional political and diplomatic history, the book incorporates recent research on population movements, the expansion of markets, the accumulation of capital, social mobility, education, changing patterns of leisure, religious practices, and intellectual and artistic developments.
