"... rich in informative and comparative analysis ... Considering the number and range of themes, the essays complement each other remarkably well ... a remarkable resource that surely will stimulate further comparative studies and scholarly debate."  · Journal of Social History

"Provides many fascinating and enriching details and quotations, and any serious scholar of 1848 must read it ... Translator Higgins deserves special recognition for both stamina and excellence."  · CHOICE


The events of 1989/90 in Europe demonstrated the renewed relevance of the mid-nineteenth century uprisings: both by showing, once again, how a revolutionary initiative could quickly spread through different European countries, but also by calling into question the nature of revolution and the criteria for a revolution's success and failure. To commemorate the 1848 revolution in a spirit of renewed critical inquiry, an international team of prominent historians have come together to produce what must be the most comprehensive work on this topic to date and to offer a synthesis that sums up the current state of scholarly research, emphasizing the many new interpretations that have developed over several decades.

Dieter Dowe is Director of the Institute of the Historical Research of the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation, Bonn. 

Heinz-Gerhard Haupt is Professor of History at the Martin-Luther-University in Halle.

Jonathan Sperber is Professor of History at the University of Missouri.
