Editorial Reviews


"Gates-Coon has produced a splendid volume on a neglected chapter of Central European history. Her survey of the social topography surrounding this Hungarian family could well serve as a guideline for future research." -- History

Format: Hardcover
This is a superb study of the social and political world of Hungary in the 18th century. By focussing on the Esterhazy's, one of Hungary's most prominent families, the author is able to touch on almost every aspect of social, economic, religious, and political life in middle Europe during the 18th century. From this masterful study, it is easier to understand the social and political unrest that erupted in the major uprisings of 1848 and later resulted in immigration to North America by Austro-Hungarian subjects. I wish that the book had been longer and that the author had been able to expand on each of the chapters.
