The Encyclopedia of Early Modern History offers 400 years of Early Modern History in one work. Experts from all over the world have joined in a presentation of the scholarship on the great era between the mid-15th to the mid-19th centuries. The perspective is European. That does not mean, however, that the view on the rest of the world is blocked. On the contrary: the multifaceted interrelatedness of European and other cultures is scrutinized extensively.

The Encyclopedia of Early Modern History provides the latest answers to history’s key questions:
- Which ideas, inventions, and events changed people’s lives?
- In which ways did living conditions change?
- How do political, social, and economic developments interlock?
- Which major cultural currents have begun to become apparent?
- How did historical interpretation of certain phenomena change?

As in a web of red threads, the individual articles are connected to one another. The reader who follows the threads will keep coming upon new and unexpected contexts and links.
