This is a revised and updated edition of a highly acclaimed history of the early modern Habsburg monarchy. Charles Ingrao unravels the web of social, political, economic, and cultural factors that shaped the Habsburg monarch during the period, and presents this complex story in a manner that is both authoritative and accessible to non-specialists. This new edition underlines the importance of Habsburg history in more recent events, and remains the most comprehensive and readable introduction to the Habsburg story.
