This third edition of Peter Rietbergen's highly acclaimed Europe: A Cultural History provides a major and original contribution to the study of Europe. From ancient Babylonian law codes to Pope Urban's call to crusade in 1095, and from Michelangelo on Italian art in 1538 to Sting's lyrics in the late twentieth century, the cultural history of Europe is a diverse and wide-ranging subject. This exceptional text expertly condenses, explains and introduces it to the reader in a thorough and highly readable style.
