Description The Limits of Loyalty de Laurence A. Cole:

"There is a welcome intellectual coherence and high scholarship to this latest volume in Berghahn's series on Austrian and Habsburg Studies." -German History "This volume is a splendid addition to the invaluable Austrian and Habsburg Studies series. Each of its contributors has approached his or her subject in a novel way, and the result is a collection that obliges the reader to look at things with a fresh eye." -N-Net Reviews "...a splendid volume...The essays in this volume offer scholars several fine theoreticl alternatives for pursuing new narratives about Austro-Hungarian society." -Central European History "The book succeeds by exploring the ways in which dynastic patriotism really operated...[It] offers a highly important contribution to scholarship. Advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and scholars studying Habsburg and central and east Europeanhistory, identity formation, as well as monarchy as a political institution will greatly benefit from and need to read this book." -Slavic Review "As with earlier volumes in this series, these essays are well-written and based on original research. There are extensive notes following each essay and a general index for the whole volume. Several topics are somewhat extraneous to the overall theme but readers will find them all of interest." -German Studies Review The overwhelming majority of historical work on the late Habsburg Monarchy has focused primarily on national movements and ethnic conflicts, with the result that too little attention has been devoted to the state and ruling dynasty. This volume is the first of its kind to concentrate on attempts by the imperial government to generate a dynastic-oriented state patriotism in the multinational Habsburg Monarchy. It examines those forces in state and society which tended toward the promotion of state unity and loyalty towards the ruling house. These essays, all original contributions and written by an international group of historians, provide a critical examination of the phenomenon of "dynastic patriotism" and offer a richly nuanced treatment of the multinational empire in its final phase.
