I ent into reading this book for two reasons:1) to get a better sense of a turning point in Western marxist thought, and 2) being a descendant of '48ers, an appreciation their possible motives for emigrating to the U.S.
That said, I found in a credible and comprehensive chronology of that year, At times, it does get tedious, but given the multiple uprisings and the mess that was the Hapsburg empire, it was something I was willing to put up with.
What I especially found intriguing that at Marxism's birth, it appears thattheses revolutions already showed more holes in Marx's ideas

Fabulous historical period, but the writing is tedious.
