About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1940, this third volume deals with the year of revolution in full narrative detail. By the beginning of 1848 all the small Italian nations were on the verge of an outbreak against Austrian domination, while the whole of Europe was also on the verge of revolution, and the next 18 months would see risings and bloodshed in almost all the European capitals, as well as in many towns in Italy. Liberalism was in the air in Europe, the revolution was about to break its bounds; yet no man in authority, save Metternich, realised the significance of this. Italy's national hopes were raised by the threat of a general upheaval, but the opportunity would be of short duration. The crowded story of 1848 told by Mr and Mrs Berkeley is momentous and stirring.
