From the Publisher"a tour de force. It is one of the best recent studies of the destruction of the Habsburg Monarchy, as well as an innovative cultural-social history of the Great War.... Vienna and the Fall of the Habsburg Empire will, of course, be of interest to historians of the Habsburg Monarchy, modern Europe, and First World War, as well as to cultural, family, gender, and urban historians, more generally. With its innovative approach to total war and the downfall of the Monarchy, this eminently readable volume should find an audience far beyond academia.With its innovative approach to total war and the downfall of the Monarchy, this eminently readable volume should find an audience far beyond academia."

"...Maureen Healy offers a welcome examination of the politics of teh mundane through an analysis of police and newspaper reports, state papers, autobiographical materials, and letters of petiition and denunciation...the text constitutes a thought-provoking contribution to studies of the home front in the First World War, in particular through the ways in which Healy seeks to ascertain how citizenship, war service and community were imagined and experienced."
