Nineteenth Century Europe by Michael Rapport

Book Description

This book explores Europe's 'long nineteenth century', from the French Revolution in 1789 until the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. Telling the story of how Europeans entered politics in the fiery trials of revolution and industrialization, the account opens with the French Revolution, passes through the crucible of the 1848 Revolutions and ends with the emergence of mass movements - socialist, revolutionary, nationalist and authoritarian - which anticipated those of the twentieth century. Along the way, Michael Rapport describes how people experienced the changes which affected European society, including: - poverty and living conditions - the abolition of serfdom (particularly in Russia) - the changing status and role of women - the expansion of education and literacy - the growth of popular culture. Rapport also considers international developments such as: - warfare - the unifications of Italy and Germany - the emergence of new states in the Balkans - the origins of the First World War - European imperialism across the globe. Paying attention to all of the major powers, but also to others, particularly Spain, Italy and the Balkan states, this is an ideal introduction for all those interested in the history of Europe in the nineteenth century.

Nationality and Citizenship in Revolutionary France by Michael Rapport Nationality and Citizenship in Revolutionary France, Hardback (July 2000)

In 1789, the French Revolution was thought to have hailed a new era of international fraternity, but by 1793, this universalist promise had all but died, with many foreigners guillotined, expelled or jailed. This text explores how and why foreigners were squeezed out of French socio-political life.
