Politically, the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Empire that followed it dominated the whole century. Continental Europe suffered renewed upheavals in 1830,1848, and 1879. England escaped with constitutional reforms. America endured its Civil War. The Nineteenth Century is a living record of this period of history with paintings, engravings and photographs. The 326 illustrations, 88 of which are in color, make it possible to see history in the making. Includes an Index. Those contributing essays are Asa Briggs, John Roberts, James Joll, F. Bedarida, F. M. L. Thompson, John Rohl, Brian Bond, Marcus Cunliffe and Hugh Seton-Watson.
