9781331899570: The Hapsburg Monarchy (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Hapsburg Monarchy

The First Edition of this book appeared in October 1913. In the preface to the Second Edition, issued last May, I wrote, "No important event has occurred to render necessary the employment of the past tense where in the First Edition the present tense was used. ... If Francis Joseph's successor be granted health and the mental stability that goes with health, it is probable that the transition from the old reign to the new will take place without hitch or shock." Since then there has happened much to render necessary the use of the past tense not only in regard to the late Heir-Presumptive, the Archduke Francis Ferdinand, and his wife the Duchess of Hohenberg, who were assassinated at Serajevo on June 28, but to suggest doubt whether the past tense may not soon have to be used in regard to the Hapsburg Monarchy itself. In these circumstances I have thought it better to make no change whatever in the text of the Third Edition, This book, in its present form, must stand as what I believe it to have been - an approximately accurate account of the Hapsburg Monarchy as it was, or seemed to be, before the murder of the Archduke and his wife.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from The Hapsburg Monarchy I wish to appeal to you as a friend of Austria to use your in?uence in the British press in order that the position of austria-hungary in this crisis may be rightly understood. It is impossible for us longer to tolerate Serbian provoca tion. Serbia must be punished; but if the press will give the lead, British public opinion will remain friendly to us, and the con?ict may be localized. I answered that I was too good a friend of Austria to help her to commit suicide. The Ambassador seemed shocked by the word suicide, and asked whether I thought austria-hungary so weak as not to be able to deal with a little people of three or four millions.
