Pressestimmen

'To be welcomed as a brisk and clear account of this mighty element in the history and culture of Europe ... a concise and highly readable account ...'. The Times Higher Education Supplement '... a well written and incisive history providing both a good introduction for those new to the subject and yet full of ideas for those who have thought about Austria for many years. ... nicely balanced between foreign affairs and domestic problems and achievements ... for anyone interested in the origins of the events that are shaking Europe today, this excellent history can be highly recommended.' Contemporary Review 'Throughout this is an arresting work, interesting, provocative, reflecting a sound balance of knowledge between the German and non-German lands, open to cultural developments, and aware of the importance of economic trends. Ingrao provides at once the best short accounts of the reigns of Leopold I, Charles VI and Maria Theresa. His book will be of great value to those teaching and studying the period ... '. Jeremy Black, Teaching History '... Ingrao's opus will remain the standard reference for students and general readers alike, and not only within the English-speaking world.'
