Overview

Jonathan Sperber has updated and expanded his study of the European Revolutions between 1848-1851 in this second edition. Emphasizing the socioeconomic background to the revolutions, and the diversity of political opinions and experiences of participants, Sperber offers an inclusive narrative of the revolutionary events and a structural analysis of the reasons for the revolutions' ultimate failure. A wide-reaching conclusion and a detailed bibliography make his book ideal for classroom use and the general reader wishing a better knowledge of a major historical event.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Jonathan Sperber's book is the first comprehensive analysis of the revolutions of 1848 in Europe in a generation and it is well worth reading...Scholars and students of history alike will profit by the riches, both descriptive and analytical, provided for them by Professor Sperber...it is a welcome addition to the literature and will be a standard assignment in advanced courses on nineteenth-century Europe." James F. Harris, Central European History
