Overview

Unleashed by the death of the last Hapsburg king, the War of the Spanish Succession was a general European war affecting most of Europe and parts of the New World. Including English, French, German, Dutch, and Spanish language sources on the war, this bibliography will be useful to both the scholar and the beginning researcher. Many of the titles in the background chapter will aid the student, as will some of the introductory monographs and English-language primary sources. The volume includes chapters on administrative and diplomatic histories that provide an understanding of the course of the conflict, as well as chapters on the theatres of conflict and the key military figures.

The book is organized around the major subject areas of the war. Following an introduction and a chapter on reference sources is a chapter providing background works and general histories. The volume then provides extensive lists of administration and diplomatic histories. The theatres of conflict are divided into chapters on France and Germany, Spain and Italy, and the sea. The two most important military figures, the Duke of Marlborough and Prince Eugene of Savoy, are covered in separate chapters. The book provides a useful guide to sources written from 1702 to 1992.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Lists and sometimes briefly describes or evaluates over 800 sources for the conflict that engulfed Europe and even generated some fighting in North America during the first decade of the 18th century. They cover bibliographies and references, background and general works, administration, diplomacy, campaigns in France and Germany, the Duke of Marlborough (English), Eugene of Savoy, campaigns in Spain and Italy, and trade and naval warfare. This first bibliography to focus on the war itself could be a resource for students all the way from high school to graduate school. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
