Joseph II by Derek Edward Dawson Beales( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emperor Joseph II (1741-90) tried to carry through something like a 'revolution from above' in the vast, varied, and mainly backward provinces of the Austrian Monarchy. Until now, no full-scale and reliable study of his life and work has been written. Professor Beales's book attempts to fill that gap. This first volume carries the story down to 1780. It describes the claustrophobic atmosphere, in which Joseph was trained to rule, his tragic marriages, and his attempts after 1765 as co-regent with his formidable mother, empress Maria Theresa, to dictate the domestic and foreign policy of the Monarchy. The author shows that previous historians have been deceived by false sources and that the picture they have given of the emperor, his strange character, his tempestuous relationship with his mother, and his political aims, needs drastic revision

History and biography : essays in honour of Derek Beales by T. C. W Blanning( Book )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For too long, too many historians have been too much concerned with impersonal forces, underlying structures and long term developments. Now, 'people' are back. In a post modern age it is easier to appreciate the decisive role played by individuals, as they ride their luck and seize their opportunity to bend the world to their will. As these essays by twelve eminent historians demonstrate, biography is too important to be left to the amateurs. Among the rich variety of strong characters analysed here are an Austrian emperor, a German kaiser, a Victorian prime minister, an Italian dictator, and an American president
