By Axel Korner ed.

The assumption of a 'Springtime of eu Peoples', options of a common republic and the attention for the ecu size of the progressive occasions had an enormous influence at the rules of 1848. They have been mirrored in songs, pamphlets and political statements. in spite of the fact that, the meanings of 1848 - its histories and thoughts - switch over the years and in response to diverse political, neighborhood and nationwide contexts. The preliminary idealism used to be quickly changed via nationalist aggressiveness. In so much commemorations, the revolution seemed as a countrywide occasion in the nationwide histories of geographical regions. this attitude basically replaced in 1998, at the party of its a hundred and fifty years' anniversary, whilst historians, poiiticains and the general public rediscovered 1848 as a eu revolution, legitimising the rescue of the countryside. 1848: a ecu Revolution? analyses the dichotomy among the overseas size in the principles of the revolution and the nationalisation of thoughts in its commemorations during the last one hundred fifty years.

However, 1848 did not have a profound and long-lasting effect on gender relations. The women's movement, at the end of the nineteenth century, did not recognize significant improvements regarding their political programme. 39 While we are well informed about the part which 1848 played within the careers of politicians of the time,40 and while we have vast documentation at our disposal regarding the role of 1848 within the history of national movements in various regions of Europe, it seems more difficult to assess historical experiences of 1848 on a broader basis, in other words to make evaluations which go beyond the narrow definitions of political and constitutional progress.
