Maureen Healy traces the fall of the Habsburg Empire during World War I from the perspective of everyday life in the capital city. She argues that the home front in Europe's first "total war" was marked by civilian conflict in streets, shops, schools, entertainment venues and apartment buildings. While Habsburg armies waged military campaigns on distant fronts, women, children, and "left at home" men waged a protracted, socially devastating war against one another. The book will appeal to those interested in modern Europe and the history of the Great War.

Review:

"...Maureen Healy offers a welcome examination of the politics of teh mundane through an analysis of police and newspaper reports, state papers, autobiographical materials, and letters of petiition and denunciation...the text constitutes a thought-provoking contribution to studies of the home front in the First World War, in particular through the ways in which Healy seeks to ascertain how citizenship, war service and community were imagined and experienced." The International History Review C.M. Peniston-Bird, Lancaster University

"...ambitious ...an excellent narrative of what total war meant on the home front."
German Studies Review

"This is an impressive study of the collapse of authority on the home front during the Habsburg monarchy's last war. It is a major contribution to the historiography."
Mark Cornwall, University of Southampton, Australian History Yearbook

"Vienna and the Fall of the Habsburg Empire counts among the best books published on Austrian history in recent years."
Jeremy King, Mount Holyoke College, Central European History

"a tour de force. It is one of the best recent studies of the destruction of the Habsburg Monarchy, as well as an innovative cultural-social history of the Great War.... Vienna and the Fall of the Habsburg Empire will, of course, be of interest to historians of the Habsburg Monarchy, modern Europe, and First World War, as well as to cultural, family, gender, and urban historians, more generally. With its innovative approach to total war and the downfall of the Monarchy, this eminently readable volume should find an audience far beyond academia.With its innovative approach to total war and the downfall of the Monarchy, this eminently readable volume should find an audience far beyond academia." Nancy M. Wingfield, Northern Illinois University, HABSBURG (H-Net)

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Maureen Healy examines the collapse of the Habsburg Empire from the perspective of everyday life in the capital city. She argues that a striking feature of total war on the home front was the spread of a war mentality to the mundane sites of everyday life - streets, shops, schools, entertainment venues and apartment buildings. While Habsburg armies waged military campaigns on distant fronts, Viennese civilians (women, children, and men left at home ) waged a protracted, socially devastating war against one another. Vienna s multi-ethnic population lived together in conditions of severe material shortage and faced near-starvation by 1917. The city fell into civilian mutiny before the state collapsed in 1918. Based on meticulous archival research, including citizens letters to state authorities, the study offers a penetrating look at Habsburg citizenship by showing how ordinary women, men and children conceived of Austria in the Empire s final years.
