Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"William McCagg has done a great service for scholarship--and for Habsburg scholarship in particular--through his book. Scholars are in his debt." --History of European Ideas

"... strongly recommended to those interested in either Jewish or Habsburg history." --American Historical Review

"... McCagg tells a fascinating story with expert knowledge, with the sure eye and sound judgment of the experienced historian... " --Midstream

"... exceptionally fine research and the time frame of the study which make it quite remarkable and original." --German Politics and Society

"William McCagg brings out the extent to which Jews were divided not only as Jews, but also as citizens of Austro-Hungary... McCagg writes perceptively of Kafka's predicament as a German-speaking Jew in Prague, living through the Czech nationalist revival... " --New York Review of Books

Drawing on a wide variety of European sources, McCagg has produced the first history of this important but often forgotten community to be written since the nineteenth century.
