Joseph II (1741--90) -- son and eventual successor of Maria Theresa -- has conventionally been seen in the context of the "Enlightened Despot'' reformers. Today's turmoil in his former territories invites a rather different perspective, however, as Joseph grapples with the familiar and intractable problems of creating a viable unitary state out of his multi-national empire in Central Europe. Professor Blanning's brilliant short study, based on extensive archival research, offers a history of the Habsburg monarchy in the eighteenth century, as well as a revaluation of the emperor's complex personality and his ill-fated reform programme.

About the Author:

T. C. W. Blanning is Professor of Modern European History at Cambridge University, and a Fellow of Sidney Sussex College. His books include Rise and Fall of the French Revolution, 1789-99; French Revolution: Class War or Culture Clash?; French Revolutionary Wars, 1787-1802; and Origins of the French
Revolutionary Wars.

Synopsis:

This book seeks to analyze the constraints under which Joseph II operated, his attempts to overcome them and the reasons for his failure. A constant theme is his attempt to construct a modern state and the baleful effects this misguided exercise had on the Habsburg monarchy, the Holy Roman Empire and Europe.
