Metternich and Austria by Alan Sked

Book Description

Alan Sked provides the first serious appraisal of Metternich's role in the Austrian Empire and Europe for half a century. Covering both domestic and international affairs, Sked presents a fresh and convincing description of Metternich's era. He argues that despite his battered historical reputation, that Metternich was the leading diplomat in Europe over four decades. This book should be standard reading for anyone interested in Habsburg or European history in the first half of the Nineteenth century.
