The article discusses writing modern European history. Criticism is leveled at the alleged tendency to bundle European national histories and calls instead for a unified European perspective on global history, the alleged influences of eurocentrism and imperialism on European historiography are analyzed, and the expansion of European history through the addition of the histories of the British Empire, the Balkan peninsula, and Siberia, Russia is lauded.
