Emerging from the growing convergence of intellectual and social history as well as the new interdisciplinary field of cultural studies, European Culture Since 1848 is the first book designed for undergraduate students which offers a thematic survey of modern European culture and synthesizes new directions and interpretive debates. Winders explores the themes in clear and accessible language, making the book indispensable for use in courses in intellectual/cultural history and in the humanities more generally. This book fills a longstanding need for a wide-ranging thematic study of modern European cultural history, including popular culture, with long-overdue emphasis on the second half of the twentieth century.
