内容説明

The first part of a two-volume history of the Habsburg Empire from its origins in the late medieval period to its dismemberment in World War 1. This volume, which is self-contained, meets a long-felt need for a systematic survey of the Habsburgs in the early modern period. It is primarily concerned with the lands and peoples who had been brought under the personal rule of the Habsburg dynasty by the end of the Middle Ages - notably the Germans, Austrians, Czechs and Hungarians. The family history of the Habsburgs themselves is skilfully interwoven with the accumulation of territory and the processes of state formation. Much biographical detail of the dominant Habsburg personalities emerges from what is primarily a political narrative; and there are extended discussions of economic developments, social change, and cultural matters. The history of the Spanish Habsburgs is also explained in sufficient detail to show how the fortunes of the Spanish and Austrian branches of the family were linked.

内容説明

The first part of a two-volume history of the Habsburg Empire from its medieval origins to its dismemberment in the First World War. This important volume (which is self-contained) meets a long-felt need for a systematic survey in English of the Habsburgs and their lands in the late medieval and early modern periods. It is primarily concerned with the Habsburg territories in central and northern Europe, but the history of the Spanish Habsburgs in Spain and the Netherlands is also covered. The book, like the Habsburgs themselves, deals with an immense range of lands and peoples: clear, balanced, and authoritative, it is a remarkable feat of synthethis and exposition.
