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

In many ways the period 1789 to 1849 saw the birth of the modern world, as the people of Europe grappled with the impact of the new political and social ideas, rapid population growth and the acceleration of the industrialisation. The clash between the forces of change and of conservatism provoked crisis, war, revolution and reaction. In Revolution and Reaction Andrew Matthews provides a lively and intelligent account. In chapters that focus on the French Revolution, Napoleon, Restoration France, Metternich's Europe and the 1848 revolutions, he considers the key individuals, groups and political, social and economic pressures that produced so much revolution, repression and war.
Features
  • The AS textbooks are ideal for students who have never studied the history of these periods before and provide detailed background information on the period studied, and include notes explaining key terms, lists of significant dates, and focus questions to consolidate learning.
  • All of the AS titles have been endorsed by OCR for use with their AS specification for history, and several of the titles will also be appropriate for Edexcel and AQA study units.
  • Many of the books include a separate document section, where students can study and evaluate a range of source material.
  • Shorter themed books explore particular topics in greater depth. The topics examined can be linked with the period covering foundation texts, providing students and teachers with flexibility in structuring A Level courses
