4.0 von 5 Sternen A very useful if biased overview of Austrian history 20. November 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
The author brings a long term body of knowledge of the subject. He has had access to sources and personages which are unique. I got the feeling that he tends to echo stereotypes that I have heard from Austrians who should know better, i.e., overstatement of Jewish influence on Viennese culture and economy.
Towards the end (p. 421), while discussing the role of Archduke Otto in the immediate post war years, he speaks very dismissively of the Von Trapp family. Saying the Von Trapps - "whose singing family of exiles had found fame in Hollywood" - were the only Austrians known to the American public. The Von Trapp family made a new life for themselves with their singing. Remember that they were essentially penniless when they escaped from Austria. The family supported themselves by their singing long before "The Sound of Music". I remember them in cncert during WW2 at a concert at a local junior high school. "The Sound of Music" appeared twenty years later. Too many times during the book, there are rather snobbish and elitist comments such as this one and lessens the author's credibility as a result.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Informative, but not what I was looking for 6. Oktober 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
The title is somewhat misleading. Perhaps the first third of the book covers the period up to the turn of the century. The rest of the book covers the past 100 years. The author dwells on his own contacts (such as with the last Empress of Austro-Hungary), and while they are, of course, valid and lends credibility and interest, he does tend to dwell on some of the convolutions of failed plots and uprisings that never happened. It is a good explanation of the Austrian "character", but I wish he had gone into more detail of the preceding history, instead of dwelling on the WWII era.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good general overview of Austrian history 13. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a nice comprehensive overview of Austrian history and the question of what, exactly, is an Austrian identity. While I was familiar with the outlines of Austrian and Hapsburg history, it has always been through the lens of other countries or events, England, Russia, Napoleon, etc. Given the author's commentary on the elusive nature of "Austria," this is perhaps more appropriate than I imagined.
I had the pleasure of spending time in the Voralberg a year ago at Christmas and it peaked my interest in this interesting and beautiful part of Europe. Given the intersections of EU expansion into Eastern Europe and proximity to the Balkans, it a good subject to know a bit about. I would like to find a similar book about Hungary, to round out my knowledge.
One small issue -- this is a telescoped history. 100 pages on the first 800 years, 100 more on the next century, and 300 on the last 100 years. Nonetheless if you are looking for a good, non-academic history of the region, this is as good as you will find.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent and comprehensive 4. März 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
This is one of a number of books we purchased in preparation for a month-long journey to Austria (in the course of which we spent a delightful week with our exchange-student daughter's host family near Graz). Austria has played a central role in much of European history, and this book provides indispensable insights into the background of this fascinating nation. One can't begin to understand Austria today without some knowledge of its complex past. This book is indispensable for those who would really seek to experience Austria. We don't pretend to a lofty level of geopolitical wisdom, but this book helped lift us out of our American insularism. Our Austrian hosts were fascinated by it, and wanted their own copy.

3.0 von 5 Sternen SHOULD HAVE A DIFFERENT TITLE 25. April 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I found this to be an interesting book for its coverage of historical events within Austria during the 20th century (i.e., the fall of the Hapsburg monarchy and the Nazi occupation). Brook-Shepherd goes into pretty good detail on these events. However, he devotes much of the book to the 20th Century, and, in a seeming contradiction to the title, does not give as much attention to pre-20th Century developments. For example, he does not give much detail about Maria Therea or Joesph II. Perhaps he should have devoted the book to only the 20th Century.
