throughout Europe, uprising, street battles, social unrest.
-what was interesting was the revolutions of the 20s and the 30s was that the revolutions of 1848, they
took place in the heartland of Europe. Central Europe. Britain is untouched, Greece and Russia not
touched. Spring 1848, karl marx resided in Brussels and called for a revolution, yet beligium too avoided
revolution. 1 month, the Belgium beat the revolution.
Why no revolution in Spain? Why no revolution in Russia?
-Why? No middle class in Russia. No educated intelgencia, no elite. Also no middle class
implies no industrialization. No social turmoil then.
-1830s british are industrializing, they realize a revolution is inevitable, they increased the franchise
-reform act of 1832, doubled the franchise, gave more rights to middle class people than before
-400k to 680k Britons were given the right to vote. So much power came into the power
of the middle class, the only way was to give a timely concession. 40% of the british
population had emigrated to the cities.
-most important was that these british workers could at least feed themselves and their
families, Corn Law of 1846- stop the import of grain
-made sure land owning class were earning money
-Such a high tariff, that couldn’t import grain
-repelled the corn law and allowed the grain to pour in
-Belgians
-how they avoided it.
-Middle class was still for the most part out of power
-Beligians sobered up after seeing the 1848 revolutions
-french always claimed beligium, so when there was a revolution, beligum
sovereignty threatened.
-created state employment to develop the railway system, to build new roads, new
bridges, state projects, immediately eliminated unemployment, no matter how much engels or karl
marx called for a revolution. Beligians avoided a revolution.
Russians
-established “air tight” borders, sort ofthey escaped the revolution
