The Habsburg Monarchy: From Enlightenment to Eclipse
by Robin Okey
The multi-national Habsburg empire has never lost its fascination since its fall in 1918. Robin Okey's book shows how the Habsburg peoples experienced the same social, economi, and political processes as most other Europeans, in ways that cast interesting light on these processes from both the European and the Habsburg angle.

The Remnants of the Habsburg Monarchy
by John C. Swanson
Book Description: This study examines the Austrian and Hungarian governments´ attempts to stabilize their international, domestic, and social conditions and legitimize themselves in the new European order after World War I. Austria and Hungary, as remnant states of the Austro-Hungarian empire and thus vanquished powers were in precarious straits. Conventional wisdom, which focuses on their subsequent descent into fascism, ignores the fact that both states achieved stability by 1922; this book focuses on that achievement.

The Road to Mayerling: The Life and Death of Crown Prince Rudolph of Austria
The Road to Mayerling: The Life and Death of Crown Prince Rudolph of Austria
by Richard Barkeley
Book Description:
This superbly factual account of the life and death of Austria's Prince Rudolph reads like a fast-paced thriller. The colorful and controversial Prince--the last and most talented of the Hapsburg line--was discovered dead on January 30, 1889, in the royal hunting lodge at Mayerling. Beside him, also dead, lay his mistress, the beautiful young Baroness Mary Vetsera. What happened that day remains a mystery that has evoked endless speculation and countless dramatic re-creations--none more engrossing and entertaining than Barkeley's vivid telling.
