Google full text of this book:

This social history of Europe during 1848 selects the most crucial centers of revolt and shows by a vivid reconstruction of events what revolution meant to the average citizen and how fateful a part he had in it. A wealth of material from contemporary sources, much of which is unavailable in English, is woven into a superb narrative which tells the story of how Frenchmen lived through the first real working-class revolt, how the students of Vienna took over the city government, how Croats and Slovenes were roused in their first nationalistic struggle, how Mazzini set up his ideal republic Rome.


"The book is a model performance in formulating and executing what we know as 'the new history.'"--Humanist

"This spirited book, rich in facts though never merely factual, solid but never stolid, will delight those who prefer history when it is as stimulating as fiction."--New York Herald Tribune

"Exceptional insights into this complex story. Catches the flavor and feeling of the period in an unusual way."--Donald McKay
