The Jews of Vienna in the age of Franz Joseph
Published for the Littman Library by Oxford University Press, 1989 - History - 696 pages
Providing a multitude of new insights into the origins of the ideological conflicts that have marked the 20th century, Wistrich here describes the "Golden Age" of Viennese Jewry that coincided with the 1848-1916 reign of the Emperor Franz Joseph. Based on meticulous research, the book analyzes the demographic, socioeconomic, cultural, and political factors that favored both the ascent of Viennese Jewry and the simultaneous increase in antisemitic movements.
