European Revolutions: 1848

I recall studying about these revolutions (from 1848 and some years following) that shook Europe. It was a volatile time. Most of the revolutions fell far short of expectations in actually change, I believe though some lasting change did occur.

This is an interesting read, don't know how reliable the site is:

European revolutions_of_1848

Anyone have general knowledge of this time and/or know of good websites or worthwhile books to read?

A general discussion would be good also. I have to admit that although this period of European History fascinated me, it is so long ago that I studied it that most of what I learned has been lost to memory in the mists of time.

Re: European Revolutions: 1848

There's a segment in one of the free online history courses from Yale titled
'Why no revolution in England in 1848'

That may be of interest.

It's been a few years since I downloaded and worked through the course so my memory of the value of the content has faded somewhat.

Anyway link is

Re: European Revolutions: 1848

Not by speeches and majority opinions will the greatest problems of the times be decided -that was the mistake of 1848 - but by Blood and Iron. - Otto von Bismarck

[from a speech given in the Prussian House of Delegates, September, 30, 1862. Source: The Great Thoughts, compiled by George Seldes.]

...And in the Republican Assembly of 1848, Victor Hugo thundered: " Replace political policies with social ones".
