Shennan examines the changing criteria upon which European relations were based between 1689 and 1789, a complex period which saw:

* the decline of dynasticism

* the emergence of economic power as a concomitant of military might

* the growth of British influence

* the dawn of nationalism

For easy reference, this book also contains extensive chronologies of the important battles, treaties and alliances of the period, along with a list of further reading.


'A shrewd and competent survey that offers a good guide to the subject at A Level and is supported by a very useful chronology.' - Jeremy Black, The Historical Association

`An easy read which examines the criteria upon which European realtions between 1689 and 1789 were based.' - History Teaching Review
