Northern Europe in the Early Modern Period : Baltic World, 1492-1772, Paperback

Northern Europe in the Early Modern Period : Baltic World, 1492-1772 Paperback



This is the first in a sequence of books which explores the history of The Baltic World and Northern Europe.

In this period, Sweden was a major European power, occupying a central position in international politics.

Her rise and decline, and the passing of regional hegemony to the new powers of Russia and Prussia, are central features in the book.

Dr Kirby describes the evolving social and political systems of the principal Baltic states of the time, he gives the key events and processes in European history a new interest and freshness by showing them from the unfamiliar perspective of the northern world.
