Whaley sees the Reich as a continually reforming, diverse but legally ordered polity, rather than some kind of bizarre monstrosity or collective fiction. His two volumes are exceptionally well written and highly nuanced and reflect the latest scholarship. Indeed, they represent a huge personal achievementthey will provide a standard of scholarship against which all future works will be measured. Alan Sked Reviews in History ... its complexity and sophistication ...[the] stupendous breadth and depth of Whaley's knowledge. The two volumes are full of incisive chapters on topics as diverse as economic policies, religious reform movements, court culture ... skilfully crafted and engrossing narrative... Michael Schaich, Times Literary Supplement superb and authoritative study. Peter Oborne, Daily Telegraph Whaley's account is one of the best works on early modern German history. From the first page to the last, it shows how German history can be presented as both a history of Emperor and Empire, and a history of common culture. It will immediately establish itself as a standard guide to its subject. Georg Schmidt, Friedrich Schiller University, Jena [Whaley's] skilfully crafted and engrossing narrative shows with great lucidity how enduring and successful were the constitutional structures put in place around 1500. Times Literary Supplement the most comprehensive survey of Germany's early modern history ever undertaken, the first book of its kind since the 1950s, and one of the most substantial works of historical scholarship published in the UK in 2011. Research Horizons, University of Cambridge An enterprise of this magnitude requires a steady hand on the tiller, as the author steers between the rocks of historiographical controversy and the shoals of submerged detail Whaley accomplishes his argosy with poise and style. These two volumes, which will undoubtedly become a first point of reference, are a remarkable achievement of which the author should feel justly proud. Tom Scott, English Historical Review essential reading Edward Bradbury, Contemporary Review surpasses [all previous works in English] in its scope, precision and carefully thought-out conceptual framework. There is also currently no work in German that can compete with this magnum opus in terms of wealth of information and its profound understanding of the structures and dynamics of the Old Reich. Heinz Duchhardt, Mitteilungen des Instituts fur Osterreichischen Geschichtsforschung an overall account whose methodological reflection, thematic range, and wealth of detail are unparalleled...these two volumes will quickly become standard works. Stefan Ehrenpreis, German Historical Institute London Bulletin His work, though different in emphasis and organisation, stands equal with the major German speaking syntheses today existing such as by Horst Rabe, Karl Otmar von Aretin, Heinz Schilling, or Georg Schmidt. His detailed knowledge of the vast relevant research literature, in German or in any other language, on topics ranging from the later fifteenth to the early nineteenth century is breath-taking. As such, this work is a must-read for all students of Early Modern Germany unless they work on specific issues of social and demographic history. The superior quality of Whaley's synthesis is beyond question. This is a masterpiece that demands close attention and respect. Robert von Friedeburg, H-Soz-u-Kult online an account whose methodological reflection, thematic range, and wealth of detail are unparalleled... these two volumes will quickly become standard works... their particular form, combining sections on historiography and methodology, structural history and the history of events, has no counterpart in the German-language historiography. Stefan Ehrenpreis, German Historical Institute London Bulletin ...successfully combines an experts love of detail with a clear view of the large picture...[It] can be recommended without hesitation as a valuable handbook for history teachers, students and journalists... [and] anyone interested in the historical-political development of Germany in Europe. Willi Eisele, AHF-Information a work of impressive scholarship and considerable erudition ... These two volumes put the Empire firmly back into German history. They provide a richly detailed, judiciously balanced discussion of the last three centuries of the Empires existence ... Whaleys history is a must for anyone with a serious interest in early modern Germany. Peter Wilson, Central European History A full and fresh assessment of more than three hundred years of German history ... the best political and institutional history of the Reich in any language ... Whaley seems to have read and digested everything. For this astonishing achievement alone one must be grateful ... As a general treatment of three centuries of legal and institutional history Whaley's volume will stand as a monument of erudite revisionism that, within its self-imposed limits, could hardly be improved. H. C. Erik Midelfort, The Sixteenth Century Journal Vol. XLIII No. 4 (2012), pp. 1225-7. Joachim Whaley's magnificent new two-volume study ... sets out precisely wherein the Old Reichs distinctive character lay and enables us to appreciate the reasons why it held the loyalties of so many for so long ... The whole is presented with admirable lucidity, free of jargon ... Whaley's monumental and magisterial study will assuredly quickly become and deservedly long remain a standard authoritative handbook for anyone concerned with the subject. John L Flood, The Modern Language Review Joachim Whaley's magnificent book gives readers the best, most persuasive available account in any language of the revisionist case. He turns the old view on its head ... He displays a remarkably wide-ranging knowledge of German culture during the three centuries covered by his book ... This is a bracing book of ideas and arguments, sustained over 125 chapters and almost 1,500 pages. It is both scholarly and very readable. David Blackbourn, Common Knowledge This monumental study ... rests on an impressive body of knowledge, not least on knowledge of the secondary literature ... the extraordinary readability of the two volumes ... makes this text an enjoyable read for specialists, students and enthusiasts from many different fields. Laura Anna Macor, Historia Philosophica [translation] Whaley negotiates a vast bibliography, which includes the history of institutions, to offer an excellent tool that is both a compass for orienting oneself among the various issues and itself a starting point. Michaela Valente, Archivio Storico Italiana OnOne ofe of t the mosthe most i impressive and hempressive and helplpful scholarly monographsful scholarly monographs of 2012... In this landmark study, Whaley provides a historical overview in which he evaluates narratives and interpretations, that are revealing about the thinking of the period but also in view of some modern views and theories. Chapter by chapter, he tests the validity of perceptions and the sense of identity Germans began to develop in the 16th century not least in opposition to wider European aspirations and claims. By questioning patterns of established thought Whaley manages time and again to add new insights to the interface of subject areas such as theology, politics, the economy and social issues... His study will be as useful to the established scholar as it is to the novice seeking to understand the influences and concerns that shaped the...Empire. Ulrike Zitzlsperger, The Years Work in Modern Language Studies, lxxiv (2014) These two-volumes ... are the fruit of long and thorough research and stand out for their many hundreds of pages of reader-friendly freshness. The external perspective of British scholarship has succeeded in producing a standard work on both German and European history. Prof. Dr. Bernd Schneidmuller, University of Heidelberg [translation] Joachim Whaley crowns a long generations work of demystifying the empires history with these two large, learned, and impressive volumes. The Journal of Modern History Whaleys two volumes mark an immense accomplishment and should be read by any scholar working on the early modern Empire or early modern politics in general. They represent the most comprehensive history of the Empire available in English and are sure to generate debate for decades to come. Christopher Close, Archiv fur Reformationsgeschichte 2013 literature Whaley's two volumes mark an immense accomplishment and should be read by any scholar working on the early modern Empire or early modern politics in general.

From the point of view of Austrian history, the author is constantly concerned to reflect critically on the relationship of the [Habsburgs'] German hereditary lands, as well as Hungary and Bohemia to the Empire. The volume is encyclopaedic in scope ... the author demonstrates great breadth and expertise in pursuing his themes of political, cultural, constitutional and social history ... In view of its balanced approach and profundity the volume will occupy an unchallenged place in the libraries of scholars next to the work of Aretin and the major handbooks of German and European history ... This work is also exceptionally well written and it represents an awesome achievement on the part of the author Martin Scheutz, Mitteilingen des Instituts fur Osterreichische Geschichtsforschung 2014 [translation] a recognised authority in the field stupendous and enviable knowledge of the scholarly literature [offers] a counterpoint to the decline narratives [of the empire] that still dominate [German historiography] Gabriele Haug-Moritz, Zeitschrift fuer Historische Forschung There is no similar comprehensive and multi-perspectival account [of early modern German history] ... the publication of these volumes is an event for German historians too ...

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Joachim Whaley has put years of work into his two-volume portrait of the Holy Roman Empire. The result is a fine tour d'horizon, rich in fact and comment, yet never too detailed as to become unreadable by the less scholarly than he. Whaley, a bilingual, provides some of the tidiest translations of many German names, titles and longer quotes currently available in "British textbooks". (To call his work either or both of these is probably demeaning, however!). Mercifully, he spares us intricate military ins and outs, preferring the broad canvas. He is, I find, at his best on social, religious and cultural history, but masters the vastly complicated administrative material as well. Sadly, OUP displays considerable sloppiness on the misprint front - surely even a Tab publishing at The Other Place deserves better?! More maps would also have been very helpful, even for readers with a pretty good grasp of modern German geography. But Whaley's entertaining turn of phrase is full of pleasant surprises. These and his ability to weave a dozen complicated strands to most elegant cloth make these two (not exactly cheap) books worth every penny. Their publication sets the new yardstick in HRE studies.

Whaley has written very good surveys of a difficult, multicultural, multilinguistic, and extremely partitioned history. His are the best books on the subject as this time.
