Modern history conventionally includes the period from the French Revolution to the most recent decades. The growth of disciplinary power thus coincided with new individual and collective freedoms; a widespread belief in progress was accompanied by an equally prominent obsession with the past; European predominance soon led to anti-colonial nationalism. Such tensions and paradoxes make studying modern history fascinating in its own right as well as invaluable for understanding present-day culture, society and politics.
