The Habsburg Monarchy thoroughly explores the dynastic characters and the multi-national complexity of the region as well as the way the Monarchy dealt with issues within the European framework, like the ending of Absolutism and education. The book spans from Joseph II’s accession as Holy Roman Emperor and joint ruler of the Habsburg lands with his Mother Maria Theresa in 1765 to its fall in 1918. Utilizing English, German, Serbo-Croat, Czech, and Magyar sources, as well as others, this book is the most comprehensive history of the Habsburg Empire ever written.

Robin Okey is Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Warwick. He lives in the United Kingdom.
The Habsburg Monarchy is, quite simply, an excellent book. Its prose is terse, clear, and crisp. Its arguments are sharp, its examples telling. It is distinguished by precise information attractively conveyed, and by many illuminating parallels which point well beyond the main subject-matter. It rests on a wealth of learning in all the chief languages of the Monarchy: this extends far beyond the (sometimes fascinating and unusual) sources cited in the notes, and well beyond the authorities mentioned at times in the text. Altogether Okey shows himself au fait with all the fruitful lines of current scholarly inquiry, and critical of them - though always in his unobtrusive way - where necessary. This book will immediately establish itself as by far the best work in English at textbook length on the Monarchy.' - Robert Evans, Regius Professor of Modern History, Oxford University
'It is the most sophisticated one volume treatment we now have of the monarchy in the last century and a half of its existence, and it will remain so for a long time to come. It can profitably be read not only by students and the general public but by historians as well.' - Solomon Wank, Habsburg
'Concise, brilliantly written - the students love it.' - Kevin Passmore, Cardiff University
'...is excellent - more readable and more up to date than the standard works on the Monarchy.' - Professor F.R. Bridge, University of Leeds'...thoughtfully organized and informed by recent research...full of interesting material and examples...' - David S. Luft, Central European History
