520 |a "Students and instructors alike praise A History of Modern Europe for its authoritative, accessible coverage written in Merriman's signature narrative style, brightened with humor and biographical sketches. The Fourth Edition has been thoroughly updated with findings from recent scholarship, including expanded coverage of women's history, the history of slavery and race, and other social history topics. Merriman places a new thematic emphasis on how the social fabric of Europe was profoundly shaped by war and violence, a vigorous area of recent scholarship."--Back cover.
