The 19th century was the golden age of private life, a time when the tentative self-consciousness of the Renaissance and earlier eras took recognizable form, and the supreme individual, with a political, scientific and above all existential value, emerged. Volume Four of this award-winning series chronicles this development from the tumult of the French Revolution to the outbreak of World War I - a century and a quarter of rapid, ungovernable change culminating in a conflict that, at a stroke, altered life in the Western world.
