For better or for worse, nineteenth-century Europe shaped the modern world through the rise of industrial capitalism and the global conquest of colonial empires, turning European wars into world wars. This course focuses on the unique dynamism of nineteenth-century Europe but also its internal conflicts and contradictions which culminated in the bloodbath of the Great War and the eventual collapse of much of the old European order in revolution. This is a genuinely pan-European course, paying attention not only to England, France and Germany but also to the often neglected Mediterranean, East European, and Scandinavian "peripheries", and complements a focus on political developments with aspects of cultural and intellectual history.
