This major interpretation of the Revolution of 1848-1849 in Germany stresses its character as a mass political phenomenon. Building skillfully on the theme of the interaction of self-conscious radicalism and spontaneous popular movements, Jonathan Sperber analyzes the social and religious antagonisms of pre-1848 German society and shows how they were politicized by the democratic political opposition.

Review:

"Rhineland Radicals displays clearly the same scholarly virtues that made Sperber's first book, Popular Catholicism in Nineteenth-Century Germany (1984), such an impressive achievement. The research is thorough, the writing uniformly clear and graceful, the analysis powerful and persuasive."--James J. Sheehan, The Times Literary Supplement

"A substantial work.... One of its strengths lies in the detailed description of economic and social conditions in the pre-1848 period as background to events during the revolution."--American Historical Review

Endorsement:

"One of the most important books on modern German history to emerge from the United States recently and probably the most important to emerge on the pre-Bismarck era."--Geoff Eley, University of Michigan
