Reading list: revolutions

For the Independent, Alice-Azania Jarvis came up with a short reading list on revolutions.

One work of history on her list:
The Age of Revolution: 1789-1848 by Eric Hobsbawm

The first installment of his four-part epic chronicling Europe from 1789 to 1991, Age Of Revolution is a classic in its field. It explores the manifold changes wrought during the period – which witnessed both the British Industrial Revolution and the French Revolution – and demonstrates how Europe established its place as the pre-eminent global power of the era.
Read about the novel on the list.
