The Crimean War and the Treaty of Paris
After the crisis at the turn from the thirties to the forties had been overcome and France had rejoined the Concert of Europe in the Convention of the Straits of July 1841, Eastern affairs were generally quiescent for another decade. There was again talk of reform in Turkey,1 where as usual nothing of substance was accomplished. From 1848 to 1850 the Powers were fully occupied with the rash of revolutions that swept over much of the continent. The danger of large international complications contained in these upheavals was avoided2 and the status quo ante seemed largely restored after the failure of the 1848 revolutions.
