Video title: The Age of Nation States

Use this History and Western Heritage video entitled The Age of Nation States to study how in the last half of the 19th century, the major states of Europe resolved basic problems that had been in evidence even before the revolutionary year of 1848. Learn how despite the failure of a series of revolutionary movements, many of the ideas associated with liberalism and nationalism became reality in less than two decades. Discover how an important stimulant to these changes was the Crimean War. This seemingly unimportant conflict, initiated by Russia and Ottoman Turkey in the mid-1850s, had several side effects that pointed to a major reshuffling of what had been the powers of the Concert of Europe.
