Item description for Hungary and the Habsburgs, l765-1800 by Eva Balazs...

va H. Balzs, one of the foremost living authorities on eighteenth century Central Europe, here 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 part 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-pheriphery 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 in the following century.

It was a vigorous and constructive era in the monarchy, and especially in Hungary. Contemporaries as well as modern scholars have taken extreme positions on this period. Professor Balzs's skill in combining a wealth of archival material - not only from Austria, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, but(unprecedented in this field) also from France - with the secondary sources, results in a more balanced and uniquely vivid picture of the age, giving the reader a near-contemporary proximity to the figures and developments discussed
