The most thorough reassessment of the reign of the great reforming Empress Maria Theresia (1740-1780) to date, this two-volume work throws new light on Austrian society and government in the 18th century and makes an important contribution to the history of central and eastern Europe in the Age of Enlightenment.
"These two packed volumes set forth in great detail the empire's resources, both demographic and material, alongside descriptions of the institutions and procedures it developed in an attempt to sustain its rapidly expanding military establishment....This study supercedes everything previously written on Habsburg finance....Every academic library must have this book, and scholars in the field will find it indispensable."--History: Reviews of New Books
