Peaceful Conquest by Sidney Pollard

Peaceful Conquest by Sidney Pollard – The Industrialization of Europe 1760-1970 might not be on our wish list for Christmas, but it is surely a very good book for students reading history. I’ve read it quite fast and I like the amount of data included in it. It was recommended by my tutor and I can easily understand why.

I made over 10 pages of notes (typed at the computer) from it and added a lot of pages to check for future reference. The book mentions all parts of Europe, from Portugal to Russia, and includes details on Romania and Bulgaria too. I’ve enjoyed reading the book.
