"The Wiley-Blackwell Dictionary of Modern European History Since 1789 is the product of the collaboration of three authors: Nicholas Atkin, Michael Biddiss, and Frank Tallett. A remarkable work of erudition, this book contains nearly 1,000 detailed entries covering the breadth of modern European history since 1789. This was a daunting undertaking, and the authors have succeeded, admirably, in crafting an authoritative and informative text that is accessible to both historians and lay readers alike."
