Anmeldelser

«Magnificent... does a remarkable job weaving together the myriad strands that make up the narrative, allowing us to see the events in granular detail and with synoptic, Europe-wide vision.»

Kenan Malik, Observer

«Magnificent, authoritative and deeply-researched... a supreme work of scholarship. »

Simon Heffer, The Telegraph

«Full of characters, colour and story, but also makes the arresting case that the revolutions ... changed Europe and the world in ways felt to this day... the history teacher you wished you'd had. »

Jonathan Freedland, Daily Mail

«A marvel of research and analysis. No corner of Europe, from the Ukrainian borderlands to the Greek islands, escapes his gaze.. a titanic monument to historical scholarship.»

Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times

«Exhilarating, heroic, horrifying and tragic, the events of the mid-19th century in Europe invite a good retelling ... Christopher Clark's new book is, arguably, the best to date ... deeply researched, rich, engaging and though-provoking. There is now no better place to turn for readers who want to immerse themselves in this period and to reflect on how it resonates today.»

Mike Rapport, Literary Review

«Thrills with unexpected energy ... this is narrative history in the grand style ... superb.»

Abigail Green, Times Literary Supplement

«An engrossing dissection of a revolutionary year in European society.»

The Independent

«Scintillating ... [a] magnificent chronicle of the events leading up to and beyond 1848 ... he tackles the complexity by giving sufficient space to the often thrilling stories of every uprising.»

Economist

«Magnificent ... Sophisticated analysis and beautiful prose ... The author vividly depicts a Europe grasping toward the future.»

Michael F. Bishop, Wall Street Journal

«Combines over-arching analysis and explanation with a ground-level reporter’s skill at narrating events and capturing character with vividness and compassion … a historian working at the height of his powers.»

Michael Ignatieff, CEU Review of Books

«Clark has achieved the impossible: a synoptic history of a subject which defies synopsis... this is history on an epic scale... a masterpiece and one of the best history books you will read this decade.»

Jonathan Boff, History Today

«Refreshingly original... it's fascinating, suspenseful, revelatory, alive. Familiar characters are given vibrancy and previously unknown players emerge from the shadows.. Clark's prose is beautiful but also crystal clear»

Gerard de Groot, The Times
