    One thought on “A History of Modern Europe, Volume 2: From the French Revolution to the Present”

    1. This book is incredibly detailed and rich. You will not feel overwhelmed by the density of historical detail. In fact, the narrator has a unique tone that keeps you engaged with the events!

    2. This is a dense, rich, and clearly written history of modern Europe. I have used it as a supplement to the textbook for the Western Civilization II class I recently finished teaching. My only criticism of this text is that the illustrations are in black and white, and so the reader is left somewhat unexposed to the richness of the art which has been produced throughout this time period. That being said, you cannot go wrong using this text as an introduction to the time period.

    3. Merriman's text manages to be both complete and descriptive without being long-winded, which is a major accomplishment for a history textbook. I first read this book in the spring of 2009 for a college course called "Revolutionary Europe: 1789 to 1989" and am currently reading Chapters 12-22, from the French Revolution to the First World War (1789-1914), in preparation for a course I am taking in the fall of 2010 on 19th century Europe.

    4. Read this for History 202- Easily readable but sometimes hard to follow as he jumps back and forth through time by grouping the book into themes.
