Europe: Hearts That Have Grown Cold

Europe is the world’s second-smallest continent, covering about 7% of Earth’s land area. Of Europe’s 50 countries, Russia is the largest and most populous. It’s the third-most populous continent after Asia and Africa, with a population of about 743 million or 11% of the world’s population. From the Renaissance forward, Europe played a predominant role in global affairs through colonialism. The Industrial Revolution, which began in the United Kingdom at the end of the 18th century, gave rise to radical economic, cultural, and social change in Western Europe, and eventually the wider world.
