Revolution, the dramatic change in politics and society caused suddenly by collective action of rulers, or people, was a constant feature of European society from 1789 to 1848. It was both the engine of destruction, and the catalyst for growth and progress throughout the period. This course examines revolutions and revolutionaries, the events and the ideas, the people and their actions. We will examine the philosophy and strategy of the revolutionaries and the romantics and writers of the time. Against the background of the new industrial society, Europe struggled to build the political structures for the continent to advance and prosper in the future. How important for the future of Europe and the world were these events, and how does their legacy affect us all today?
