9781330044032: The Whirlpool of Europe: Austria-Hungary and the Habsburgs (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Whirlpool of Europe: Austria-Hungary and the Habsburgs

No attempt has been made, either in text or illustra tions, to do justice to the wonderful scenery which is the framework of this picture of national and political evo lation. To do so would involve not one but several volumes, and the present work is merely an outline which the reader may fill in at his leisure by reference to more detailed studies. The authors feel that the historical sketch may alarm some readers by its scope, but it was found impossible to give a true impression of modern Austria and Hungary without tracing their connection with the extinct Holy Roman Empire and the modern German one, or without following, from its earliest stages, the career of the House of Habsburg. The key to the situa tion lies to a great extent in the historical evolution of the various parts of the Dual Monarchy and in their relations to the ruling house.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 518 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.0in.Excerpt from The Whirlpool of Europe: Austria-Hungary and the HabsburgsThis book is designed to meet the wants of the general reader, who, without time or inclination for historical and political research, is yet anxious to understand the events that are taking place in Central and Southern Europe. The authors believe that there is no book in the English language - and perhaps none in any language - which gathers up all the loose strands of this tangled web and weaves them together into a coherent whole. Many valuable studies and monographs have been written on various phases or sections of the subject, but of Austria-Hungary as a whole, of the political, racial, and social evolution of the countries over which the Habsburg Emperor-King holds sway, there exists at present no account to which the reader can turn. The paramount importance of the Austro-Hungarian question in European politics, and the crisis which seems to be impending in the affairs of the Dual Monarchy, are enough in themselves to attract attention, but apart from them this Whirlpool of Europe is a region full of interest, packed with historical associations of the most entrancing character and at the same time pulsing with modern life and the problems of social and political development.
