Providing a multitude of new insights into the origins of the ideological conflicts that have marked the 20th century, Wistrich here describes the "Golden Age" of Viennese Jewry that coincided with the 1848-1916 reign of the Emperor Franz Joseph. Based on meticulous research, the book analyzes the demographic, socioeconomic, cultural, and political factors that favored both the ascent of Viennese Jewry and the simultaneous increase in antisemitic movements.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Jews of Vienna in the Age of Franz Joseph?

An excellent book on a critical time in Jewish History  May 18, 2000
This is an excellant book. Unlike many others, it gives you more than the title suggests. It actually starts in the 1820's, and gives a brief synopsis of the Jews in Vienna before this period also. The basic format of the book is to concentrate on the main figures and issues that Viennese Jewry faced in the different periods that the book covers. The author gives a quite fair treatment to all of the figures in the period irregardless of their political or religious views, and open-mindedly examines the issues that Viennese Jewry faced and the decisions that they made. Viennese Jewry in this period was very important and instructive. Of course the most famous figure is Theodore Hertzl, who is treated at length. Vienna at the time had a very diverse Jewish community. It ranged from the super assimilated aristicratic Jews like the Rothchilds and Baron Hirsh to the ultra-Orthodox immigrants from Galicia. The issues that they faced ranged from assimilation, Zionism, anti-Semitism, to inter-Jewish relations.
