"These Sad But Glorious Days" is a series of columns published in the New-York Tribune, collected together. The bits where Fuller was in England were among the more interesting, as she relates a first-person, outsider perspective on many of the issues that I study. Her time in France is okay, but the book really picks up when she gets to Italy, since revolution is brewing. Again, the first-person perspective is great, especially once Rome comes under attack. On the other hand, she prints too many long speeches which I just skipped over.

The book's introduction, by editors Larry J. Reynolds and Susan Belasco Smith, annoyed me. No, it's not a crime against literature to republish something in a new context, and you don't need to apologize for it.
