1848: The Year of Revolutions
Peter Hamish Wilson
Ashgate, 2006 - History - 556 pages
Europe was swept by a wave of revolution in 1848 that had repercussions stretching well beyond the continent. Governments fell in quick succession or conceded significant reforms, before being rolled back by conservative reaction. Though widely perceived as a failure, the revolution ended the vestiges of feudalism, broadened civil society and strengthened the state prior to the rapid industrialisation and urbanisation of the latter part of the nineteenth century. This volume brings together essays from leading specialists on the international dimension, national experiences, political mobilisation, and reaction and legacy.
