Illustrated History of Europe
A Unique Portrait of Europe's Common HistoryBook - 1993
The story of Europe is fascinating and complex, usually told from one historian's - or nation's - point of view. This unprecendented survey, the collective effort of 12 historians, presents Europe from a more objective perspective to unravel its many cultural, economic, social and political strands. From prehistoric cave paintings in Spain to the spread of Christianity through the Middle Ages and the glory of the Renaissance to the collapse of the Berlin Wall, this book is a watershed in historical writing, offering a wholly new view. With 520 illustrations with extended captions, 130 panels of original source material and 120 colour maps, this is one of most complete histories of Europe ever produced.
