Europe in the Sixteenth Century Summary

Europe in the Sixteenth Century by H. Koenigsberger

The completely revised and updated version of this famous book examines sixteenth-century Europe as a complex but interconnected whole and explores the various political structures of the age. Central to the book, is the Reformation and the religious and intellectual movements that fuelled it. A strength of the book remains the space it devotes to the town-life in the sixteenth century, and to the economic background of political change. An entirely new chapter on 'Social Life', however, now takes account of the new work on demographic history, on attitudes to women and the family, and on the impact of education, disease and war.
