Austria, Hungary, and the Habsburgs : essays on Central Europe, c.1683-1867 by R. J. W Evans( )

38 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 2,126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book addresses a number of interrelated themes over two hundred years and more in the political, religious, cultural, and social history of a broad but often neglected swathe of the European continent. It seeks - against the grain of conventional presentations - to apprehend the era from the later seventeenth to the later nineteenth century as a whole, and to demonstrate continuities, as well as casting light on key aspects of the evolution towards modern statehood and national awareness in Central Europe, and the crises of ancien-regime structures there in the face of new challenges at home and abroad."--Jacket
The making of the Habsburg monarchy, 1550-1700 : an interpretation by R. J. W Evans( Book )

95 editions published between 1979 and 2003 in 5 languages and held by 1,381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines and accounts for the emergence of a powerful Habsburg state in central Europe during the 16th and 17th centuries. Charting the transformation of the Habsburg lands from a casual juxtaposition of territories into a major and reasonably stable commonwealth, Evans examines the social and economic changes brought about by the Counter-Reformation, the interaction between regions and central government, and the intellectual evolution from the Renaissance to the Baroque
The Coming of the First World War by R. J. W Evans( Book )

52 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and German and held by 1,185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The debate about the conflict which transformed Europe between 1914 and 1918 is one of the most fundamental in modern European history. This book, based on public lectures given in Oxford, makes two distinctive contributions to that debate. It presents readable and judicious accounts of the events and decisions which directly precipitated the outbreak of war in each of the main countries and assesses the role of public opinion and popular mood in determining and responding to the "July Crisis." The book offers a stimulating survey of the historiography of the immediate causes of the war, before and since the famous "Fischer controversy" over German responsibility, and new reflections on the character of the official and unofficial "mentalitis" during the last weeks of peace. Published on the seventieth anniversary of the 1918 Armistice, this book will appeal to anyone interested in how wars begin
The Holy Roman Empire, 1495-1806 by Peter H Wilson( )

28 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 995 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last forty years or so, research on the history of the 'Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation' (1495-1806) has been transformed almost beyond recognition. Once derided as a political non-entity, a chaotic assemblage of countless principalities and statelets that lacked coercive power and was stifled by encrusted structures and procedures, the Reich has been fully rehabilitated by more recent historiography. It is now being hailed by some as a model of peaceful conflict resolution in the centre of Europe which, in the long run, was able to defuse the religious tensions created by the confessional divide of the sixteenth century and to protect its smaller members against the voracious appetite of more powerful neighbours
Rudolf II and his world: a study in intellectual history, 1576-1612 by R. J. W Evans( Book )

62 editions published between 1973 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Thirty Years' War by Geoffrey Parker( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fought by over a dozen belligerents, the conflicts of the Thirty Years' War are recorded in over ten languages, with documents deposited in scores of archives scattered across Europe. The Thirty Years' War was not only a German civil war but also a confluence of the dynastic struggles between the Habsburgs and their various enemies. This volume is a collaborative effort, wherein the first five chapters are arranged chronologically, and the sixth revises the conventional picture of a devastated Germany. The book is based on numerous secondary sources and published documents, focused on political and diplomatic history, with short but interesting sections on the social, cultural, and economic aspects of the war. It is a tight knit narrative of many threads--political, military, and diplomatic events--resulting in a balanced overview without confusing the reader with the complexities

"An assessment of the role of the Middle Ages in national historiography and in modern conceptions of national identity, looking at relatively young nations, and regions which claim national traditions but were slow to achieve, or regain, separate statehood.

Britain and Danubian Europe in the era of World War II, 1933-1941 by Andras Becker( )

3 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a study of British official attitudes towards the Danubian countries (Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Romania and Yugoslavia) from Hitlers rise to power in 1933 to the year 1941, a period that marked serious but fruitless British political and economic efforts to unite this unruly part of Europe against Nazi ascendancy. Set against an international backdrop of regional revanchist, revisionist and irredentist tendencies, particularly in Hungary and Bulgaria, the book explores how these movements affected international relations in the region as they aimed to overturn the territorial order set down in Versailles following the Great War to restore the status quo of a more glorious national past. Offering fresh insights into the British-East Central and South East European relationship, the book charts the shifts in British official policy towards Danubian Europe, amidst competing regional nationalisms and the sudden and abrupt shifts in British global priorities during the early part of World War II. Andras Becker is a historian of modern Europe, and a Visiting Researcher at the Department of Central Eurasian Studies, Indiana University, Bloomington, USA. He previously studied history at the University of Southampton, UK, and is interested in Great Power rivalries within Danubian Europe and the Balkans during the first half of the twentieth century
