This book analyses the reasons for and the nature of the 1848 Revolution in Neuchâtel, as understood within its historical context, from the Pruissian Restoration in 1814 to the radical victory in 1848. Neuchâtel is the only European state where the revolutionary movement of 1848 lead to an institutional reversal, the abolition of the monarchy and the establishment of a stable, representative democracy. The ambiguous stauts of this little State make it a particulary interesting case, being both a Swiss canton and Prussian principality, just as it was both a modern society, already strongly industrialised, but relying on the institutional and legal infrastructure of the past. The analysis of this "Sonderfall" intends to renew a subject that has not, until now, taken advantage of the contemporary evolution of historiography. Futhermore, it highlights new documentation, recently uncovered in the archives of the former East Germany. The principle axes of research are the following: the idiosyncrasies and evolution of the institutions of Neuchâtel; the political conditions of a country torn between helvetic aspirations and a monarchal tradition; the economic situation, especially when faced with the German Zollverein; the forms and expressions of internal political opposition, starting in 1831, and the repressive governmentals tactics. Examining the interactions between these different elements provides a reinterpretation of the 1848 Revolution of Neuchâtel.
