Volume III: 1848-1850

The diplomatic correspondence of the years 1848 to 1850 vividly illustrates the importance of the 1848 revolution and its aftermath as an epoch-making event in German and European history. It reveals the attitudes and perceptions of British observers in a period of great diplomatic activity and vigilance. The developments and changing political situation between the outbreak of the revolution and the start of the Dresden Conference in late 1850 are reflected by the official British observers at the level both of the individual member states of the Confederation and of Germany as a whole.
