9780198225607: Making of the Habsburg Monarchy, 1550-1700: An Interpretation

This book examines and accounts for the emergence of a powerful Habsburg state in central Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries. Charting the transformation of the Habsburg lands from a casual juxtaposition of territories into a major and reasonably stable commonwealth, Evans examines the social and economic changes brought about by the Counter-Reformation, the interaction between regions and central government, and the intellectual evolution from the Renaissance to the Baroque.

Review:


"The Habsburg monarchy dominated European history for nearly half a millennium. Until the publication...of this excellent book no one had really explained why....Evans' book, which won the Wolfson Literary Award for History in 1980, grapples expertly with the numerous problems which inhibited many an earlier scholar."--Times Literary Supplement


"[A]s a compendium and reference book for the intellectual history of this period the volume...with its excellent bibliography and good appendices, can be regarded as a standard work."--Austrian History Yearbook
