Description
 
Jeremy Black & Roy Porter (eds.). The 18th century was a time of spectacular contrasts: the age of enlightenment, exploration & improvement on the one hand, & of revolution, rioting, cruelty & vice on the other. It saw the wealthy empires of Europe expand to the Pacific; the great philosophers of the age redefine thinking; the beginning of industrialization; the advent of the novel. Yet beneath the age of reason lay a darker history of serfdom & slavery, poverty & crime. Revolts & uprisings simmered; the French Revolution broke out; America won independence; the rights of man were proclaimed. Includes Africa, China & India, covering its personalities, politics & ideas, with information on artists, writers & musicians including Mozart, Blake, Goya, John & Hogarth. Chronology. Charts & maps.
