1 Review

"William McCagg has done a great service for scholarship—and for Habsburg scholarship in particular—through his book. Scholars are in his debt." —History of European Ideas

"... strongly recommended to those interested in either Jewish or Habsburg history." —American Historical Review

"... McCagg tells a fascinating story with expert knowledge, with the sure eye and sound judgment of the experienced historian... " —Midstream

"... exceptionally fine research and the time frame of the study which make it quite remarkable and original." —German Politics & Society

"William McCagg brings out the extent to which Jews were divided not only as Jews, but also as citizens of Austro-Hungary... McCagg writes perceptively of Kafka's predicament as a German-speaking Jew in Prague, living through the Czech nationalist revival... " —New York Review of Books

Drawing on a wide variety of European sources, McCagg has produced the first history of this important but often forgotten community to be written since the nineteenth century.
