An Economic and Social History of Western Europe Since 1945, Paperback Book

An Economic and Social History of Western Europe Since 1945 Paperback


This is the ideal companion text to A Political History of Western Europe Since 1945.

It is an introductory survey which explains how western Europe built up its postwar prosperity and is moving towards continental integration.

Themes treated include: the origins of the EC; consumerism; youth culture and protest; immigration; the oil crisis and its aftermath; and the contrasting experience and expectations of the Nordic world and the Mediterranean south.

The book ends with the consequences of Soviet collapse.

Designed for general history students, it assumes no formal knowledge of economics, and is notably accessible and user-friendly in its approach.
