Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1848, a violent storm of revolutions ripped through Europe. The torrent all but swept away the conservative order that had kept peace on the continent since Napoleons defeat at Waterloo in 1815—but which in many countries had also suppressed dreams of national freedom. Political events so dramatic had not been seen in Europe since the French Revolution, and they would not be witnessed again until 1989, with the revolutions in Eastern and Central Europe.

In 1848, historian Mike Rapport examines the roots of the ferment and then, with breathtaking pace, chronicles the explosive spread of violence across Europe. A vivid narrative of a complex chain of interconnected revolutions, 1848 tells the exhilarating story of Europes violent “Spring of Nations” and traces its reverberations to the present day.

Synopsis:

A stunning narrative of the year 1848, when Europe burst aflame with revolution

Synopsis:

A torrent of revolutions ripped through Europe in the year 1848. The storm all but swept away the conservative order that had held sway since the fall of Napoleon in 1815. Over the course of the spring and summer, crowds of working-class radicals and middle-class liberals in Paris, Milan, Venice, Naples, Palermo, Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Krakow, Munich, and Berlin toppled the old regimes and began the task of forging a new order.

A vivid narrative of a continent in revolt, 1848 tells the thrilling story of a tumultuous age— and explains the many ways in which this year of revolutions continues to shape the modern world.
