Summary

This book examines the evolution of relations between the Habsburg ruler of Hungary and his subjects from the crushing of the Hungarian Revolution of 1849 to the Compromise of 1867 and on to World War I. The book explains the evolution of Francis Joseph's attitude toward the Hungarians whose public adulation of their king camouflaged a historical condition of enmity that never disappeared.
