Historians writing on the 1848 German Revolutions follow fairly clear generational patterns with each generation adhering to distinctive manners of analysis and presentation. This stratification is the result of both the influence of historical events on scholarship as well as changing trends in academic approaches as applied to history and revolutionary theory alike.
