These essays arose out of lectures given in Oxford to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the 1848 revolutions in Europe. Authoritative, yet readable and colourful, they comprise judicious summaries of the existing state of knowledge, as well as new insights and unfamiliar information. The book also seeks to place the revolutionary events in their wider context: apart from chapters covering the main centres of disturbance in France, Germany, Italy, and the Habsburg lands, there are discussions of the situation in Britain and Russia, which were affected but not convulsed by the disorders elsewhere; of reactions in the United States of America; and of the symbolism of 1848 for later democratic, radical, and socialist movements. 1848 marked the first breakdown of traditional authority across much of the continent, and as such is of profound significance in the development of modern European politics as a whole.

MEDIA REVIEWS
a fresh, lively and stimulating set of essays. * Guy P.C.Thomson, French History, vol.14, No.3, 2000 *
The scope of the book lends itself ot a comparative approach to the revolutionary movements. The analysis of the revolutions' impact on Britain, Russia and the US raises the question of how the revolutions impacted other countries elsewhere in Europe and the Americas. The studies are, for the most-part, up-to-date in their analysis of the topic, and the authors provide useful bibliographical annotations. This work would be an excellent choice for an upper-division or graduate-level course on the Revolutions of 1848 or Europe in the nineteenth century. * Paul Arpaia, H-W-Civ *
a panorama of the areas that directly experienced revolutions ... as well as several countries on the periphery * Paul Arpaia, H-W-Civ *
