In a panoramic and pioneering re-evaluation, Pieter Judson shows why the Habsburg Empire was so well, for so long, for millions of Europeans in Central EuropeBeyond the divisions of language, religion, region, and history, women and men felt a common attachment to their “empire”, while bureaucrats, soldiers, politicians and academics devised original solutions to the challenges of the Council of Europe is the second largest state.In the decades before and after its dissolution, some observers criticized the Habsburg Empire as a dysfunction of the mosaic of hostile ethnic groups and the anachronistic imperial relicsJudson examines their motivations and just explains how badly these rearguard, criticsRejecting the fragmented histories of the United Nations in manufacturing, this bold revision of the investigations of common institutions that bridged the difference and the distance to bring stability and meaning to the distant empireBy supporting new schools, courts, and railways, along with scientists and artists, the advances, the Habsburgs, the monarchs sought to anchor their authority in the cultures and economies of Central EuropeA rise in living standards throughout the empire strengthened the legitimacy of the Habsburg rule, as citizens learned to use the empire’s administrative apparatus to their advantageThe developed nationalists developed distinctive ideas about cultural difference in the context of the empire of institutions, but all affirm the Habsburg state as their empireThe empire of creative solutions for the management of his many lands and peoples, as well as the most thorny problems he could not solve–left a lasting imprint on his successor Central European statesIts lessons remain no less important today
