9781780232744: The Habsburgs: Dynasty, Culture and Politics

The death of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo in 1914 not only sparked the beginning of World War I it also initiated the beginning of the end of the six-hundred-year-old Habsburg dynasty, which fell apart when the war ended, changing Europe forever. But how did the Habsburgs come to play such a decisive role in the fate of the continent? Paula Sutter Fichtner seeks to answer this question in this comprehensive account of the longest-lived European empire.
 
Tracing the origins of the house of Habsburg to the tenth century, Fichtner identifies the principal characters in the story and explores how they were able to hold together such a culturally diverse and multiethnic state for so many centuries. She takes account of the intertwining of culture, politics, and society, revealing the strategies that enabled the dynasty’s extraordinarily long life: its dazzling mix of cultural propaganda, public performances, and cunning political maneuvering. She points out the irony that one of the crowd-pleasing performances that had enabled the Habsburg success visiting beds of the injured led to Ferdinand’s death and the empire’s downfall. Breathing fresh life into the history of the Habsburg reign, this accessible and authoritative history charts one of the pivotal foundation stories of modern Europe.

Descripción Reaktion Books, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. On 28 June 1914, in the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Habsburg-Lorraine-Este was shot dead. Known as the moment that sparked off the First World War, this incident also initiated another, lesser-known story: the beginning of the end of Habsburg rule, which came four years later. In this comprehensive account of the longest-lived European empire, Paula Sutter Fichtner explains how the dynasty came to play such a decisive role in the fate of the continent. The Habsburgs: Dynasty, Culture and Politics traces the origins of house Habsburg and shows how it was able to hold together such a culturally diverse, polyglot and multi-ethnic state for more than 600 years, the cessation of which changed the shape of Europe forever. Taking account of the interpenetration of culture, politics and society, the book reveals the strategies that enabled the dynasty s extraordinarily long life - its dazzling mix of cultural propaganda, public performances and cunning political manoeuvring. It is one of the most striking ironies of this history that Ferdinand was killed while on his way to visit injured people in hospital - just the sort of crowd-pleasing performance that had enabled Habsburg success. This incisive new history tells the story of the Habsburgs in an accessible yet authoritative fashion, revealing the intriguing principal characters in the drama and breathing fresh life into the story of the Habsburg reign. The book charts one of the pivotal foundation stories of modern Europe, and is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of the continent. Nº de ref. de la librería AA99781780232744
