  • "Krieg im Frieden"by Günther Kronenbitter

    De Gruyter 2003; US$ 126.00

    Seit 1906 forderte die Führung der k.u.k. Armee immer wieder, auf Krieg als Mittel zur Stabilisierung der Großmachtposition Österreich-Ungarns zurückzugreifen. Dabei verfügte das Habsburgerreich gar nicht über die militärischen Ressourcen für einen Kampf an mehreren Fronten: Die politischen Strukturen der Doppelmonarchie verhinderten... more...

  • Understanding Multiculturalismby Johannes Feichtinger; Gary B. Cohen

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 34.95

    Multiculturalism has long been linked to calls for tolerance of cultural diversity, but today many observers are subjecting the concept to close scrutiny.

    In 1848, an 18-year-old boy assumed the throne of Austria, one of the most powerful countries in Europe.

  • Rethinking Vienna 1900by Steven Beller

    Fin-de-siècle Vienna remains a central event in the birth of the century's modern culture.

  • Metternich's German Policy, Volume IIby Enno E. Kraehe

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 64.00 US$ 58.24

    Using new archival sources, this book shows that Prussia sought not the unity of Germany but its partition into five masses loosely enough joined to assure her control of the North. Hardenberg, not Metternich, supported the feudalistic claims of the estates suppressed by Napoleon and the resurrection of ancient estates' assemblies based mainly on... more...
