    The first thing to note is that historians’ understanding of what characterises early modern Europe has changed over time. If you look at an old textbook, you will find that the early modern (as the name suggests) was seen as a forerunner of the modern period: a time of transition between the medieval and the modern.

This book is far superior to what would seem to be its nearest bookshelf rival - 'Early Modern Europe, ' by Merry E.

I am giving 'Early Modern Europe: An Oxford History' 5 stars because/5(6).

    A shtetl (Yiddish: שטעטל ‎, shtetl, singular; שטעטלעך, shtetlekh, plural) was a small town with a large Jewish population which existed in Central and Eastern Europe before the Holocaust. R.
