European World Fourth Edition Video



Drawing on the department’s longstanding core module for the period, Warwick’s early modernists have collaborated on a textbook which first appeared in 2009.

Now in its fourth edition, The European World 1500-1800: An Introduction to Early Modern History (London: Routledge, 2023) has been adopted by numerous universities and used by generations of students across the globe.

New Features

To mark the latest updates, which include two new chapters – on ‘Environments’ and ‘Food & Drink Cultures’, a fresh ‘all colour’ look and additional print as well as online features, Beat Kümin (editor) and William Rupp (assistant / website editor) have recorded a video introduction at the historic church of Berkswell just a few miles from campus. We hope that it will whet your appetite to find out more about The European World on its Routledge homepage and our companion website.
