This is the first fully documented psycho-biography of the last Crown Prince of the Habsburg monarchy. Drawing mostly from first hand reports, Salvendy follows Crown Prince Rudolf from infancy to his suicide at the age of thirty.

Review:

...exciting and well researched... (The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, Aug. 1990, Vol. 157)

This is a fascinating book: a window into European history of not too long ago, a history which will surely repeat itself;...I would hope this author, and other Canadian psychiatrists, will continue to perfect this method of psychohistory. (The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, Aug. 1990, Vol. 157)

...stimulating, original, and important....Professor Salvendy used many archival sources, and he has brought to the subject the expertise of a psychiatrist....Salvendy writes well, with the flair of a good raconteur....the book...has become a near bestseller in Hungary....This work has established Dr. Salvendy as a respected Habsburg scholar and psychohistorian. (Istvan Deak, Professor of History, Columbia University in the City of New York The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry)

...DR. SALVENDY'S book is a particularly interesting and topical one....quite characteristic and unique...The main asset of this work is clearly its author. There is no better qualified person to write such a psychobiography or psychohistoriography. (William E. Powles, Kingston Tudomany, (Hungarian Journal Of Science))

This is a fascinating book: a window into European history of not too long ago, a history which will surely repeat itself; the window being the examination through psychological and psychiatric eyes of a single life lived at the very node of the network where history was being made. (The Canadian Journal of Psychiatry)

Mr. Salvendy enriched the research findings about this strange and fascinating Austrian Crown Prince....It is an excellent psychobiographical and psychohistorical study which can be strongly recommended.
