The brief reign of Joseph I occupies an important place in Austrian history, coinciding as it does with the monarchy's great victories and conquests during the War of the Spanish Succession. Under Joseph's leadership, Austria established its long hegemony over Italy and suppressed the great Rgk6czi rebellion, drawing up a compromise with the Hungarian nation, which was to serve as a landmark in Austro-Hungarian relations until the end of the monarchy. Despite the significance of Joseph's contribution to the history of his dynasty, he has never had a modern biographer until now. Extensively researched both in published and archival sources, In Quest and Crisis is the first biography of this colorful emperor to appear in any language since the eighteenth century.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"[Ingrao's] presentation of the complex problems confronting the Danubian Hapsburg statesmen is clear, concise, and well written."

--John B. Wolf (07/24/2018)


"This is a scholarly, informative work; history collections will find it useful . . . ."

--Library Journal


"The study offers in several ways new insights into the complex foreign and domestic policies of the Hapsburg Empire under an unorthodox, gifted young ruler."

--Robert A. Kann (07/24/2018)


"This study . . . offers a welcome addition to the literature on a period long domination by historians writing from either a French or a British viewpoint . . . . Ingrao has distilled a mass of documentation from Austrian, German, Hungarian, and British archives to produce a well-constructed, compact survey of Viennese court politics and Hapsburg strategy."

--The American Historical Review


." . . represents a most welcome addition to the literature. Based upon copious use of archival sources it does the best job possible of reconstructing this fascinating reign."

--Choice


"This new work . . . may well stand as the constant reference source, if not the definitive word, on Joseph I for scholars and students of the Hapsburgs and of modern Europe in general for years to come."
