Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For more than six centuries, the strange and defiant Habsburg family ruled a polyglot empire sprawling from Audstria to the Adriatic Sea, from North Africa to Mexico. Researcher Andrew Wheatcroft shows how the dynasty's mystical vision and unsurpassed political acumen culminated in the culture that produced 20th-century giants such as Freud and Hitler. 16 pages of photographs.

Synopsis:

This is a history of the rise to power and eventual decline of the Habsburg empire. This episode in history covers three centuries and traces their area of influence of almost all the countries of Europe. Material from both Spanish and Austrian archives has been used for this book.

Synopsis:

"Splendidly rich...required reading for anyone who hopes to understand the real Europe."—Daily Telegraph.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [347]-368) and index.
