(p.473) Chapter XX Victories of the Counter-Revolution in Eastern Europe
The Age of the Democratic Revolution

R. R. Palmer

Princeton University Press

The year that saw the survival of the revolution in France saw its extinction in Poland. The same months in which it became clear that structural changes would spread to Belgium and Holland saw the stamping out of “Jacobinism” in Austria and in Hungary. This chapter describes—not the failure of revolution in Eastern Europe, since, except in Poland, no revolution was attempted—but the triumph and strengthening of counter-revolutionary forces in Eastern Europe at this time. These were the forces, agrarian and conservatively aristocratic, which had already largely destroyed the work of Joseph II in the Hapsburg Empire and combined to annihilate the Polish constitution of 1791.
