Synopsis: Eva H. Balazs, one of the foremost living authorities on eighteenth century Central Europe, examines a crucial period in the co-existence of the Austrian hereditary provinces and Hungary. In a Europe torn by wars and revolutions, in the last third of the eighteenth century, political, economic and personal factors interwined to determine the fortunes of the Austrian rulers and the subjects of the Hungarian crown who collaborated with them in a subordinated status. Rejecting commonplaces of the centre-periphery approach, the author argues that the Habsburg monarchy was a 'centre' whose reforms in this period inspired all subsequent movements for reform in Eastern and Central Europe.

Professor Balazs's skill in combining great wealth of archival material -- not only from Austria, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, but (unprecedented in this field) also from France, gives the reader a near-contemporary proximity to the figures and developments discussed.

Review: "The importance of the present work lies in its information on Hungarian politics and society during the period of enlightened absolutism. In the course of her account, Balzs exposes several of the myths which have worked their way into the English-language accounts of late eighteenth-century Hungary. She convincingly demonstrates, therefore, that the upper reaches of the Hungarian aristocracy were by no means 'Austrianized' elite, but that they always retained close connections with their homeland." -- Slavic and East European Review, 1997

"The product of four decades of research, this book contributes a great deal of new information, much of it carefully distilled to fill gaps left by previous historical works." -- Choice, 1997
