From the Habsburgs to Central Europe : The Centers for Austrian and Central European Studies at the Universities of Stanford, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Edmonton, Jerusalem, Budapest and Vienna

The Centers for Austrian Studies, founded by the Austrian Ministry of Science and Research since the 1970s play an important role for the Austrian Scientific Community. Their tasks are to promote Austrian and Central European Studies in their host nations and to give Austrian students the possibility to conduct research aboard and to get in touch with local colleagues. This anthology contains a description of the Institution's history and current status as well as the working papers of their present PhD students. Their research covers a period from the 17th to the middle of the 20th century.
