Europe 1789 to 1914 covers the important people and the major events and developments in Europe from the onset of the French Revolution to the outbreak of World War I, one of the most studied periods in many disciplines. Broad in its scope, the encyclopedia encompasses all areas of human endeavor, exploring the period's scientific, social and cultural history as well as the political, military and economic developments. It illustrates the impact of the French Revolution and Napoleonic era on Europe, and the transformation of its political, social, and cultural institutions by the forces of industrialization, nationalism, mass politics, imperialism, great power rivalries and innovative cultural change. It links European experience to the history of the rest of the world, continuing the Charles Scribner's Sons' award-winning line from Ancient Europe and Encyclopedia of the Renaissance through Europe 1450-1789: Encyclopedia of the Early Modern World.
