Historical Dictionaries of Europe
There is a lot to like about Scarecrow's various Historical Dictionaries series. The books are written by experts in the area or country that is covered. All contain well-written brief histories of the country and chronologies that, though they cover historical time periods, heavily feature more recent events. Brief A-Z entries cover the main people, politics, social issues, foreign affairs, institutions, and policies that make the country unique. Extensive bibliographies are divided into several general subject areas. -Booklist This Historical Dictionary series on Europe contains two types of books: those reaching far back to the earlier periods of European history, which describe the peoples who created the kingdoms and territories that gradually emerged into the present state, and those dealing only with the modern state. Like the historical scope, the geographic spread is vast, stretching from Iceland down to Spain and Scandinavia, to the Balkans, to Turkey and Armenia. As with the other series, these volumes are written by well-known country specialists and are periodically updated to keep abreast of the times. Broad as they are, not everything can be squeezed into the country volumes and those interested in Europe should also consult historical dictionaries in other series, such as Religions, Philosophies, and Movements (Anglicanism, Catholicism, Lutheranism, etc), Cities (Paris, London, Brussels), International Organizations (European Union, European Organizations), Ancient Civilizations and Historical Eras (Vikings, Renaissance, Napoleonic Era), War (British Civil Wars, Crimean War, World Wars I and II), Diplomacy and Foreign Relations (Anglo-American Relations) or perhaps Literature and the Arts (French Cinema, Scandinavian Literature, German Theatre).
