This student guide is designed to accompany the The History of Europe in the Modern Worlds texts by Palmer, Colton, and Kramer (eleventh editions) (must be obtained separately). Focusing on the history of ideas, biographies, and key cultural developments, particularly in Western European and American societies, these texts will help familiarize students with the greatest minds and cultures of preceding generations. These study guides provide comprehension questions that help students focus on the most important information from each chapter, and cannot be used without the text.
