The Encyclopedia of Early Modern History offers 400 years of early modern history in one work. Experts from all over the world have joined in a presentation of the scholarship on the great era between the mid-15th to the mid-19th centuries.
The perspective is European. That does not mean, however, that the view on the rest of the world is blocked. On the contrary: the multifaceted interrelatedness of European and other cultures is scrutinized extensively.
The Encyclopedia of Early Modern History addresses major historical questions:
– which ideas, inventions, and events changed people’s lives?
– in which ways did living conditions change?
– how do political, social, and economic developments interlock?
– which major cultural currents have begun to become apparent?
– how did historical interpretation of certain phenomena change?
The individual articles are connected to one another as in a web of red threads. The reader who follows the threads will keep coming upon new and unexpected contexts and links.
