Description
 
Part of the PERSPECTIVES IN HISTORY series, offering an engaging range of period texts and theme books for AS and A Level History.

Seventeenth century Europe was characterised by war, rebellion, social upheaval, economic expansion and scientific discovery. In this accessible book, Quentin Deakin addresses key issues central to an understanding of the period: Why did the Thirty Years War break out in 1618. How did Richelieu and Mazarin extend the power of France? Why did Spain decline and Holland enter its 'golden age'? Why was there a European witch hunt in the first half of the seventeenth century? And was there, indeed a 'scientific revolution'? Expansion, War and Rebellion is illustrated and contains a range of primary sources.

Author: Quentin Deakin
