The Revolutions of 1848, known in some countries as the Spring of Nations, People's Spring, Springtime of the Peoples, or the Year of Revolution, were a series of political upheavals throughout Europe in 1848. It remains the most widespread revolutionary wave in European history. The revolutions were essentially bourgeois revolutions and democratic and liberal in nature, with the aim of removing the old monarchical structures and creating independent nation-states.

Empirically, it examines three historical waves of democratic opposition: Europe in 1848 and 1917-19 and South America in the 1970s and 1980s. Theoretically, it advances two approaches to explaining diffusion and the success or failure of democratic opposition movements. The book is an important contribution to the study of both diffusion and the major episodes of democratization in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Sigmann evidently sees 1848 as part and parcel of the tumults of the two previous decades since fully half the book is given . This is an ambitious and disappointing attempt to find coherence and unity in the revolutions of 1848.

Sigmann evidently sees 1848 as part and parcel of the tumults of the two previous decades since fully half the book is given over to a country-by-country survey of European internal development from 1830 (a far more successful effort to deal with the period is William Langer's Political and Social Upheaval: Eighteen Thirty-two to Eighteen Fifty-two, 1969) with the broad outlines sometimes lost in the barrage of particulars. Sigmann's ultimate judgment of the men of '48 seems occasionally strange and contradictory.

Despite the defeat of the revolutions, however, important changes resulted from the 1848 rising. Manorialism was permanently abolished throughout Germany and the Habsburg lands, giving peasants new rights. Socialism, though wounded by the failure of the revolutions, was on Europe’s political agenda, and some feminist agitation had surfaced in France and Germany.

The historiography of the 1848 revolutions has undergone considerable changes during the last thirty-five years, characterized, above all, by the application of classic social history in the style of Thompson and the Annales school.
