Evans traces the evolution of British interest in the history of Continental Europe from the Enlightenment to the twentieth century. He discusses why the many British historians who work on Europe have chosen to do so and why this very distinguished tradition is now under threat.In Cosmopolitan Islanders one of the world's leading historians asks why it is that so many prominent and influential British historians have devoted themselves to the study of the European continent. Books on the history of France, Germany, Italy, Russia, and many other European countries, and of Europe more generally, have frequently reached the best-seller lists both in Britain and (in translation) in those European countries themselves.
