Hi, I am currently studying history at university, I am in my first year, one of my moduals is based around the events of 'The German Question' and the essay question i have chosen is

How 'Revolutionary' was Germany in 1848 and why did the revolution fail?

The problem I have is that I am finding this perticular module quite hard to digest and I am having trouble finding reading materials for the subject matter and more importantly the essay, I am fine with my other 2 modules this semester but this one has me stumped.

My essay has to be in by april 11th and i don't even know where to begin.

can anyone with knowledge on this perticular subject point me in the direction of some reading materials which will help me out in the subject/essay?

Thanks in advance,
Marc.

For an overview, see Christopher Clark's "Iron Kingdom", there is a short chapter on this. For a more general background on the German Question, see the German chapter in Baycroft and Hewitson (eds.) - "What is a Nation?". Finally for a more detailed explanation of the revolution see, Frank Eyck - "The Revolutions of 1848-9".

I would start by reading the general background, then read the chapter in Clark and finish off by going into some serious detail with Eyck. Supplement this with primary sources from the time (from this website: http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/mod/g...ification.html) and you should be well on your way to writing a great essay on the Revolutions in Germany.
