About the Author

"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."--The Times

"Magnificent, authoritative and deeply-researched . . . a supreme work of scholarship."--The Telegraph

"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."--Literary Review

"An engrossing dissection of a revolutionary year in European society."--The Independent

'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."--Daily Mail

"Christopher Clark is that rare thing: a great historian who is also a brilliant storyteller, with a gift for sketching scenes and delineating characters with a few deft brushstrokes. Revolutionary Spring is a beautifully written, richly detailed account of a historical moment that rhymes and resonates, in many strange ways, with our own era of turmoil and disruption."--Amitav Ghosh, author of Sea of Poppies and The Great Derangement
