Reviews

"...splendid second volume of his biography of Joseph II.... This book should restore Joseph II to his rightful position, holding a central place in the history of Austria, the Habsburg monarchy, Germany and central Europe." - Steven Beller, Times Literary Supplement
"This is a masterful biography, based on research in multiple European archives, published primary sources, and just about every extant secondary source related to Joseph. Highly recommended." -Choice
"Beales has completed his awesome project on Joseph with another monumental volume, this time on the final decade, the ten years - actually just over nine - of his sole rule in Austria. And what a rule!." -The New York Review of Books
"a magisterial study of the Austrian monarchy and continental Europe in the second half of the eighteenth century." -Francia-Recensio
"...Beale's biography will be an essential reference point for all future contribution." -Bettina Dietz, Austrian History Yearbook
