Review by

I picked up this textbook after reading Sperber's great short survey of the revolutions of 1848 and am not disappointed. It's clearly organized and vigorously argued, subtle and creative in the many different approaches it takes to the period. Military strategy, comparative politics, economic history, gender relations, you name it, it's in here. Excellent descriptive bibliography, too.
