Modern Austria : empire and republic, 1815-1986 by Barbara Jelavich( Book )

20 editions published between 1987 and 2003 in English and held by 1,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with the Congress of Vienna in 1815 and extending to the elections in November of 1986, this history of modern Austria has been written for the general reader and the student wishing an overview of the country's recent history. The first part of the book, covering the years from 1815 to 1918, includes a discussion of the events in Habsburg history that have a particular significance for the evolution of the later republic. The second part, commencing with the establishment of the First Republic in the turbulent and difficult years after World War I, is concerned with the development of the democratic government and its replacement during a period of economic and political instability by the authoritarian regimes of Dollfuss and Schuschnigg. The first two decades of Austrian independence conclude with the annexation by Germany and the subsequent involvement in the catastrophe and total defeat of World War II. The postwar period commences with a description of the reestablishment of the independent state, the ten-year four-power occupation and, finally, the treaty of 1955 and the acceptance of Austrian neutrality. The last two chapters deal with the internal and international issues that concerned the Austrian government in a period of relative tranquility. Particular attention is paid to the unique aspects of the Austrian system. The book concludes with an examination of the Kreisky era, the evolution of Austrian social democracy, and the political controversies after 1983. The main emphasis in the book is on political history and foreign policy, but attention is paid to the cultural history of Austria, focusing particularly on Vienna, throughout the nineteenth and twenieth centuries. - Publisher

14 editions published between 1974 and 1978 in English and Chinese and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covering a period of over a century and a half, this well-documented study traces the evolution of Russian foreign policy during the regimes of five tsars, from Alexander I to Nicholas II, and four Soviet leaders, from Lenin to Brezhnev. Like the tsars, the Soviet leaders dominated the formulation and implementation of foreign policy and determined the atmosphere of the relations of their state to the rest of the world. Until the Second World War the chief concern of both the tsarist and Soviet leadership focused on central Europe and the Balkan peninsula. Thereafter Soviet attention was drawn increasingly into other areas, where it faced the problems attendent on the rise of the United States as the predominent competitive great power, the victory of the Communist Party in China, and the breakup of the European colonial empires. An introductory chapter surveys the period from Peter the Great through Napolean, and a concluding chapter compares the achievements of the Soviet and tsarist periods. The first part of this books was originally published under the title A century of Russian Foreign Policy, 1814-1914. The Soviet section is entirely new

Russia's Balkan entanglements, 1806-1914 by Barbara Jelavich( Book )

23 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the century between 1806 and 1914 tsarist Russia was drawn into five wars due to its deep involvement, based on treaty rights and established traditions, in Balkan affairs. This book examines the reason for the Russian involvement in the Balkan peninsula and attempts to explain at least partially the connection that drew the Russian government into entanglements that were not only dangerous to its great power interests, but that were difficult to control. The wars, waged at a high human and economic cost, limited the resources that could be spent on internal development and, in particular when they ended in defeat, led to domestic unrest and after 1856 and 1917 to drastic internal change
Russia and the formation of the Romanian national state, 1821-1878 by Barbara Jelavich( Book )

21 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book has a double emphasis: it examines the role played by tsarist Russia in the formation of an independent Romanian national state, and it discusses the reaction of a Balkan nationality to the influence of a neighboring great power that was both a protector and a menace. In the early nineteenth century the centers of Romanian political life were the Danubian Principalities of Moldavia and Wallachia, which were both under Ottoman rule but which had separate, autonomous administrations. Although welcoming Russian aid against the Ottoman Empire, the Romanian leadership at the same time feared that the Russian government would use its military power to establish a firm control over the Principalities or would annex Romanian lands, as indeed occurred in 1812. Here this difficult relationship is examined in detail as it developed during the century in connection with the major events leading to the international acceptance of Romanian independence in 1878
