This second volume of "The Third Revolution" is a comprehensive account of 19th-century revolutions. Opening with the transition from Jacobinism to socialism, it explores the 1830 Revolution in France; the Lyons Insurrections of 1831 and 1834, where the red and black flags of socialism and anarchism were first raised; the revolutions of 1848; and the Paris Commune of 1871. The transition from radical craft movements, prevalent in the early part of the century, to industrial working-class movements is traced, and a narrative of the First and Second Internationals brings this volume to a close.
