    this is actually not a joke I'm doing Merriman's self-guided European History class on Yale's open course site. it's not like i have anything better to do right now

    Finished with this Leviathan of a book.Quick warning: this is truly an academic history book, so don't go thinking you'll get Tuchman-esque writing and/or dramatic/epic representations of European history. This book is functional to the very last drop, but a great companion to your history book collection.What you will get: 1. Good, concise writing2. Writing devoid of pedantic and opinionated ramblings3. A great general survey of modern European history4. Good starting point for your research in [...]

    This is a textbook to a Yale course HIST 202: European Civilization, 1648-1945 by the author. The course is available on line.

    Much of what I know about Modern Europe is knowledge derived from John Merriman's "A History of Modern Europe" Volume Two textbook, chronicling the era from Napoleon to the 1990s, providing me with a great basis of the circumstances and effects of groundbreaking events such as, the rise of modern democracies, both World Wars, the Cold War, the Fall of Communism, and the rise of Iron Curtain states / Soviet Republics.Volume Two is a heavy read (a semester's worth of reading at over 500 pages), bu [...]

    I absolutely love this book. Honestly, I think this book should be required reading for any and all serious history students. Great for both review and research in regards to Western civilisation between the renaissance and the present.

    Oh god I finished. I read every page. Every, single, page.Just give me a moment I'll be okayokay let's get started.Well the book is high on information content but the writing itself is pretty poor, and quite a chore to slog through. The author has a weird habit of repeating words within a single sentence something like: 'the german states of the german states than were in the german states' I won't cite specifics, you see it nearly every other page and I think it helps emphasize one of the book [...]

    My AP Euro teacher's making us read this book and he showed us a bunch of Dr. Merriman's lectures from Yale University. He always said he likes this text better than the others because it is much more detailed, but I find it pretty dry and hard to read. God, imagine outlining it too.

    This is the driest reading material I have had to deal with. Of course I've never had to read a textbook before so that really isn't a great description for the book. And it's so long! Like 1350 pages or something like that! And I'm only on page 760! Gaaah! Stupid AP European History book. This is going to be on my currently reading shelf for like another three months at least.

    I used this book as 'the' Text for a Teaching Company Course--the Long 19th Century. Both the course and this book were excellent and highly recommended. The text is clear, thorough, yet concise. For a summary of the period, I can't imagine a better source. The book is 1500 pages so it is a major read for anyone, but well worth it.

    This was the text for my junior year European Revolutionary History class. I read a ton of books in college but this stands out as one of the better ones. I actually enjoyed my reading assignments for this text. It's thorough and informative without being dry, and includes some analysis of events and how they relate rather than just a straightforward recitation.

    Good as textbooks go, occasionally bizarre writing / strange facts Merriman has a huge crush on Gustavus Adolphus.

    I read most of it in college, but I recently re-read the whole thing. It is remarkably easy to read, if you discount it's size.

    Read parts of this for my 19th cent. European history class. Lots of pictures, maps, and charts; the author clearly has opinions, but it's not bad for a textbook.
