The Revolutions in Europe by Robert Evans
The Revolutions in Europe by Robert Evans and Hartmut Pogge von Strandmann is a collection of essays about the 1848 revolutions in Europe. As it happens with this kind of books, some chapters are more intriguing that others, both due to the subject and to the style of the author. Overall I gave the book 4 stars. It is a good starting point for learning about the 1848 European revolutions.
One of the chapters that surprised me was the one by Roberts about the United States and how the turmoil in Europe was seen across in the US. It made for a very interesting read.
