Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"An impressive achievement in a task of extraordinary difficulty...The outstanding asset of this work does not consist in in its comprehensiveness and objectivity, however, nor even in the wide knowledge and special expertise Kann can bring to bear from his early legal training, his formidable scholarship on the nationalities question, and his keen critical appreciation of the diverse cultures of the monarchy. Its greatest merit derives from the author's determination always to ask fundamental questions, his care to discriminate between surface phenomena and deeper causes, his skill in finding significant patterns in an apparently chaotic welter of events, his facility for perceptive and penetrating distinctions and generalizations. In short, he tried with considerable success to tell what really happened in history rather than simply what obviously happened."—Canadian Historical Review

Don Eveland, December 17, 2011 (view all comments by Don Eveland)
This book is a fine overview of The Habsburg Empire. I mean that in a good way as, though a summary of the nearly 400 years The Habsburgs ruled a group of diverse ethnic groups in southwestern Europe, the author Robert A. Kann, intrigues one into wanting to know more about this fascinating empire that went down in flames due to it's diverse ethnicity.
