This a subject I keep revisiting, without gaining much illumination. Much about the 1848 revolutions remains mysterious to me. It isn't clear to me what set off the revolutions in the first place, or how or why they occurred simultaneously and independently throughout the major cities of Europe, or why they failed so decisively when they should have had the support of the majority of the people. This book narrates the history of the movement without clarifying any of these issues. It is also frankly a mystery to me why the American Revolution seems to be just about the only successful revolution in history, at least in terms of bringing about a social order that was better than what came before. This book attempts to explain 1848 but does not really get at the central problems.

--1848 is considered a pivotal year in European history: a year in which revolutions erupted throughout most of the continent.

--This book attempts to explain the reasons for revolt--and trace each revolution from its inception to its ultimate failure. Because they all failed in their intentions.

--The problem, as Stearns sees it, was ultimately in the intentions. They were muddled--and they were multiple. Too many groups were fighting for too many different reasons and too many of them--groups and reasons--were at cross-purposes.

--France, Italy, Germany, Austria...not all of them nations back in 1848, indeed nationalism was one of the things fought for...all experienced violent, albeit short-lived, insurrections. Relatively speaking, there weren't a great many people killed, nor did a lot change when it was all over, at least not dramatically. 1848 was basically the year that classic revolution died, at least in Europe.

--In Russia, immune to the revolutions of 1848, and later, China, revolution was reborn, of course, re-tooled and fueled by what was lacking in the revolutions of 1848, according to Stearns: effective class warfare.

--Things just weren't bad enough for the middle-class who ultimately were afraid of too much chaos, the peasantry was entirely out of the loop, the urban lower-classes weren't politically sophisticated, organized, or motivated...it was a revolution without a galvanizing cause.

--In "1848: The Revolutionary Tide in Europe" Stearns does nothing to enliven the subject. What's offered here is pretty much standard textbook fare--dry, academic prose arranging the facts and figures without style, verve, or personality.
