Cambridge Perspectives in History : Expansion, War and Rebellion: Europe 1598-1661 Paperback / softback

Description

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'? The book is illustrated and contains a range of primary sources.
