    Review Þ The Habsburg Empire A New History È PDF DOC TXT eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Habsburg Empire A New HistoryThis is a fantastic book that emphasizes the Habsburgs' strategies of rule rather than a broad overview of all Habsburg history In the first portion of this work Judson argues that the Habsburg Empire engaged in large scale reform in hopes of creating a coherent imperial state After the Congress of Vienna the Habsburg Empire dropped its reformist policies and instead aimed to simply keep the peace By 1848 Judson argues that nationalism became a force of its own although the Habsburgs were capable of accommodating these national movements by reinstituting new reforms Interestingly he suggests that there was wide ranging popular support for the empire virtua

    Review Þ The Habsburg Empire A New History È PDF DOC TXT eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Habsburg Empire A New HistoryA lengthy and detailed tome on the Habsburg Empire or Habsburg Monarchy also referred to as the Austrian Empire the Austro Hungarian Empire or Austria Hungary This book takes an overarching view of the Empire its history and its end Its life ran from 1700 1918 when at the end of World War I it collapsed There were transformations over time such as the semi separation between Hungary and Austria in 1867 when the state became known as Austria HungaryThe Empire seems to have been a bit rickety over its lifetime with many centrifugal forces It was a milticultural multiethnic empire which created tensions never fully satisfied The book examines various cultural expressions of this from literature to media However despite the forces pulling against unity if the author is correct there was some sense of people being apart of a greater political entity Thus the strains were managed not necessarily well but well enoughThe Empire itself sometimes made tentative gestures add

    Review Þ The Habsburg Empire A New History È PDF DOC TXT eBook or Kindle ePUB free The Habsburg Empire A New HistoryThis book does a marvelous job of resuscitating our image of what was long thought to be a tottering dinosaur or a prison of peoples In fact as Pieter Judson shows the Habsburg empire was in many ways a multiethnic model of the 19th and early 20th century one that managed to keep a diverse array of nations together and spur both political and economic development One thing Judson demonstrates is that the supposed nationalisms that brought down the empire often meant different things to different people For the diets of Hungary or Galicia southern Poland nationalism usually meant the ability to keep aristocratic nobles in charge while ignoring the pleas for suffrage and freedom from the vast majority of serfs who often looked to the empire itself for support Emperor Franz Joseph who ruled from 1848 to 1916 often threatened to expand suffrage or eliminate
