"[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 . . . ."
"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."
"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."
