Europe and the Making of Modernity, 1815-1914 is a clear and engaging chronicle of the political, economic, social, and cultural changes that transformed Europe during the nineteenth century. An introduction neatly summarizes the major issues and events of the French Revolution, while a sweeping narrative takes readers from the Congress of Vienna to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand at Sarajevo. Employing the latest research, the book incorporates discussions of gender, nationalism, imperialism, the rise of the new working and middle classes, and the ways in which artists represented the modern world to new audiences. It also provides a unique integration of the history of Eastern Europe into the story. Winks and Neuberger explore how European societies responded to the challenges of the French and Industrial Revolutions with the invention of modern political parties and the rise of modern nationalism and the nation-state. They chart the spread of democratic institutions and the obstacles to democratic reform in a world where rapid change confronted a tenacious past. Europe and the Making of Modernity, 1815-1914 examines the creation of European modernity during the nineteenth century through conflicts over identity, sovereignty, prosperity, security, and human nature. Featuring chronologies, supplemental reading lists, maps, and illustrations for ease of reference, the book is ideal for undergraduate courses on nineteenth-century European history.

Using an impressive array of primary and secondary materials, Robin Winks details the diverse experiences of Black immigrants to Canada, including Black slaves brought to Nova Scotia and the Canadas by Loyalists at the end of the American Revolution, Black refugees who fled to Nova Scotia following the War of 1812, Jamaican Maroons, and fugitive slaves who fled to British North America. He also looks at Black West Coast businessmen who helped found British Columbia, particularly Victoria, and Black settlement in the prairie provinces. Throughout Winks explores efforts by African-Canadians to establish and maintain meaningful lifestyles in Canada. The Blacks in Canada investigates the French and English periods of slavery, the abolitionist movement in Canada, and the role played by Canadians in the broader continental antislavery crusade, as well as Canadian adaptations to nineteenth- and twentieth-century racial mores. The second edition includes a new introduction by Winks on changes that have occurred since the book's first appearance and where African-Canadian studies stands today. (view table of contents)
