a fascinating tour of the major revolutions of '48: france, [germany], the austrian empire, and [italy]. full of incredible anecdotes (the upside of being a social history), but also occasionally missing the broader explanations that would help tie things together. the cast(s) of characters is large, but ultimately worth it for the detail.
