Over the last 100 years, most European countries have experienced great, and in many cases similar changes. A general term for the phenomenon is 'modernisation', and in this anthology the authors present several different aspects of modernisation and the modernisation revolution. Among other issues, the articles are based on the importance of industrialisation, education and economic development for the success of modernisation. Spain, Sweden and Denmark have been used as starting points to illustrate differences in the modernisation process between northern and southern Europe.

Excerpt from Amazon.com review of Barker's previous book: "I happened across this book one morning and ended up hiding from my boss the entire day so that I could read the whole thing. Mr. Barker allows you to see a whole new world through his eyes. At times the stories were so fantastic/riotous that I had to remind myself that it was not fiction! I was so intrigued by this book that I recommended it to my book club. It made for some very lively discussion about sex, marriage, travel and physical disability." -Brooke Brooks from Dallas, TX Life with cerebral palsy. Three years in Hong Kong and two Chinese wives, writing career, family and friends, adaptive p.e. and building house in Belize.
