☆ Judson ☆ ô The Habsburg Empire: A New History Þ The Habsburg Empire A New History, by Pieter M Judson, is a revisionist analysis of the internal sociological cultural, political and economic aspects of the Austrian and Austro Hungarian Empire from 1780 1918 and a small bit beyond This history examines the internal development that this multi ethnic Empire went through, and the attempts at reform, subsequent political reactions, and ultimate collapse that ensued Judson has done an excellent job with this revisionist work, examining a nation state that is widely derived in modern literature, but can easily be examined in a revisionist framework for its admirable attempt to meld many different ethnic religious social cultural linguistic etc groups under a political umbrella akin to many modern multi ethnic states Pieter M.

å The Empire seems to have been a bit rickety over its lifetime, with many centrifugal forces It was a milticultural, multiethnic empire, which created tensions never fully satisfied The book examines various cultural expressions of this, from literature to media However, despite the forces pulling against unity, if the author is correct, there was some sense of people being apart of a greater political entity ½ read ↠´ The Habsburg Empire: A New History by Pieter M Pieter M.

å Judson ☆ ✓ The Habsburg Empire: A New History Ä This is a fantastic book that emphasizes the Habsburgs strategies of rule, rather than a broad overview of all Habsburg history In the first portion of this work, Judson argues that the Habsburg Empire engaged in large scale reform in hopes of creating a coherent imperial state After the Congress of Vienna, the Habsburg Empire dropped its reformist policies and instead aimed to simply keep the peace By 1848, Judson argues that nationalism became a force of its own, although the Habsburgs were capable of accommodating these national movements by reinstituting new reforms Interestingly, he suggests that there was wide ranging popular support for the empire virtually everywhere outside of Hungary and Italy Pieter M.

Á Judson ☆ ↠´ The Habsburg Empire: A New History ß While full of interesting tidbits of history about the Habsburg empire and the history of Austria, the reading pace and flow were difficult The author seems to assume a higher level of base knowledge than I obviously have, which made some points disjointed and harder to follow as a continuous timeline The level of detail was also so great it often disrupted the flow of the events the author was trying to describe and the descriptions themselves became repetitive and distracting An edit would have improved this for the casual reader If you already have read several other books on the topic, you ll likely be able to follow the narrative easily than I did, and therefore enjoy the book Pieter M.
