Europe in the Sixteenth Century, Paperback

Europe in the Sixteenth Century Paperback

Part of the Silver Library series


This bestselling, seminal book - a general survey of Europe in the era of 'Rennaisance and Reformation' - was originally published in Denys Hay's famous Series, 'A General History of Europe'. It looks at sixteenth-century Europe as a complex but interconnected whole, rather than as a mosaic of separate states.

The authors explore its different aspects through the various political structures of the age - empires, monarchies, city-republics - and how they functioned and related to one another.

A strength of the book remains the space it devotes to the growing importance of town-life in the sixteenth century, and to the economic background of political change.
