Before spawning the dual and sometimes dueling behemoths of democracy and capitalism that have become integral to much of the Western world, the European continent was largely comprised of disparate villages, city-states, and kingdoms, with little to unite them. Over time, political, social, and economic philosophies emerged to transform kingdoms into empires. This engaging series takes a broad look at the events, movements, and ideas that created and sustained the countries of Europe, from prehistory through the Renaissance, from the modern era to the present European Union.
