Description

Studies on exile in the 19th century tend to be restricted to national histories. This volume is the first to offer a broader view by looking at French, Italian, Hungarian, Polish, Czech and German political refugees who fled to England after the European revolutions of 1848/49. The contributors examine various aspects of their lives in exile such as their opportunities for political activities, the forms of political cooperation that existed between exiles from different European countries on the one hand and with organizations and politicians in England on the other and, finally, the attitude of the host country towards the refugees, and their perceptions of the country which had granted them asylum.

Sabine Freitag is Research Fellow at the German Historical Institute in London.

Rudolf Muhs is Lecturer in German History at the University of London (Royal Holloway).

Subject: 18th/19th Century History Refugee & Migration Studies
Area: Europe Central/Eastern Europe
