|Contents:||"The first part (of this book) portrays old Austria, particularly old Vienna, the leading men of the Vienna Revolution of 1848, and the principal events of that fateful year. The author achieves this by connecting the biography of her father, one of the most prominent men of the Vienna Revolution, with a very careful description of the social, political, and cultural features of old Austria and the life of her people... The second part, which describes the immigration into America of the parents of the author and their friends, also is founded on private letters and papers printed for the first time. They are particularly interesting because they give a very good insight into the character and ideals of those cultured men and women who, as typical Forty-eighters, emigrated to the United States after the defeat of the liberal and democratic ideas for which they had fought in their old homes in Central Europe" --
