Last Years of Austria-Hungary

A Multi-National Experiment in Early Twentieth-Century Europe

edited by Mark Cornwall

Liverpool University Press

The emergence of central Europe and the Balkans as a major area of interest and international concern in post-Cold War Europe have given the fall of the Habsburg Empire and the consequences of that fall considerable contemporary resonance. The Empire was an experiment in multi-national politics, and how different ethnic and religious groups live or do not live together is very much what this book is about. The eight essays in this volume seek to unravel the complexities of the final twenty years of Austria-Hungary and its eventual disintegration, tackling from different angles the political, social and international challenges to the Empire's existence. The book aims to fill a gap in the market between expensive textbooks and very specialist articles and monographs and as such should appeal both to students and to the general reader interested in the Habsburgs and the Great War.
