This is the first time Cambridge historian Christopher Clark has narrated one of his popular studies of modern Europe. His steady and straightforward delivery proves highly effective over the many hours of this complex narrative. The revolutions that upended the three decades of enforced peace that followed the Napoleonic Wars were, in fact, numerous uprisings scattered all across Europe. How Clark solves that narrative challenge is an interesting feature here. He divides his sections chronologically, geographically, and thematically, creating a multilayered portrait of Old Europe dragged brawling into the age of the railroad and telegraph. His portrait of a culture in transition, like his earlier unforgettable image of Europe "sleepwalking" into WWI, is dramatic, incisive, and highly enlightening.
