    DescriptionMartyn Lyons offers a fresh interpretation of European history in the half-century following the fall of Napoleon. Instead of seeing the period in traditional terms of Restoration and Reaction, this new account emphasizes the problems of remembering and forgetting the recent revolutionary and Napoleonic past, and of either incorporating or rejecting its legacy. Post-Revolutionary Europe: - makes interesting comparisons and contrasts between the fall of the French Empire in 1815 and the collapse of the Soviet Empire in 1989-91 - examines the new forms of popular participation in political life which developed between the 1830 and 1848 Revolutions, as a broad public sphere of action was created - offers a series of thematic chapters which discuss key topics such as peasants and artisans, the bourgeois family, nationalism, the growth of cities, and European Jewry - covers a wide geographical context, from Britain to the Balkans and from Portugal to Russia. Illustrated throughout, this clear and engaging text is essential reading for all those with an interest in this important period of European history.

    Review quote
    '[Lyons writes] not a history of restoration and reaction, but a history of memory and forgetfulness of the revolutionary and Napoleonic past; not a history of national awakening, but rather a history of national construction ...[Lyons has] a thoroughly profound foreign-language ability... the all-embracing structure of his book already reveals the effort made to attain new perspectives. [The book] is to be recommended as a valuable synthesis, combining a solid account with the latest research trends'. - Translated from J.Schmidt-Funke, H-Soz-u-Kult 'A stimulating book... valuable in overturning the numerous assumptions and over-simplifications that often characterize interpretations of the history of the period.' - M.Rowe, European History Quarterly
