Austria, Hungary, and the Habsburgs

R. J. W. Evans

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents an essay on the history of Central Europe. It suggests that full recognition of the need for a region called Central Europe coincided with the final exclusion of Austria from Germany and that the notion of Mitteleuropa was generally considered with a more or less German national tinge. It was only with the events of the 1980s that Central Europe gained new life as a political ideal and its cultural associations were revived.

Keywords:   Central Europe, history, Austria, Germany, Mitteleuropa, political ideal
