Military Culture and Popular Patriotism in Late Imperial Austria
Defining ‘military culture’ not as the organizational culture pertaining to the army as an institution, but as a way of understanding the historical importance of the military in Austrian society and culture, the chapter emphasizes the need for a new military history of the Habsburg Monarchy. In discussing existing research, the introduction argues for a greater appreciation of the social, cultural, and political impact of the military in late imperial Austria, before concluding with a discussion of militarism and processes of societal militarization. It further provides an outline of the main themes and subject matter of the book.
