Constitutional Revolutions

  • Niels Eichhorn


The Age of Revolutions (1776–1825) not only witnessed the birth of independence desires among nationalities but also the demand for political reform, casting a long political shadow into the middle of the nineteenth century. States grappled with political inequalities and demands for constitutional governments. As early as 1688, when England suffered through the Glorious Revolution, revolutionary challenges appeared Atlantic in nature.
