Summary ""A model of clarity and that higher objectivity that allows no bias and yet has a red thread throught it, a humanist orientation and factual integrity. This book deserves to be a standard work on the history of Austria, which it also narrates in a masterly style."-George Weidenfeld, publisher and president of the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, London" ""The most reliable, informative book on contemporary Austria. A joy to read."-Walter Laqueur, author of The Last Days of Europe: epitaph for an Old Continent" ""Paul Lendvai has once again succeeded in producing an excellent and enlightening volume, this time about his adopted country. He gives us personal insight into twentieth-century Austrian history and politics, often critical but always full of sympathy. This very fine translation will enable English-speaking readers to gain unique glimpses of the highly successful alpine republic as seen by one of its leading public intellectuals."-Istv₉n De₉k, Columbia University" ""A lively, well-informed volume. Paul Lendvai makes no secret that this is a very personal account, and yet Austria, including its infamous past, does not escape his critical eye."-Melanie Sully, Diplomatic Academy, Vienne" ""Daring, exciting, unmaksing...Lendvai presents hitherto hardly known facts [and] incredible details."-News (Vienna Weekly)" ""Lendvai seeks to explain what Austria is like. He has succeeded exactly in this endeavor."-Die Welt" "Austria experienced remarkable economic and social growth in the years following World War II, especially considering the troubled nature of its politics. A small, land-locked country, Austria has emerged as the European Union's fourth richest state, yet it still wrestles with old decisions and demons." "Merging personal observation with rich historical scholarship, Paul Lendvai, a renowned journalist and award-winning memoirist, tracks Austria's unique trajectory, from its origins to the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian empire and beyond. Lendvai investigates whether Austrians have come to terms with Hitler's Anschluss and the Waldheim affair and how they have met the challenge of Jorge Haider's radical right-wing ascendancy. He identifies a positive moral toughness, internal cohesion, and social discipline within the Austrian people, especially evident during the years of occupation and subsequent crises, such as the Hungarian Revolution, the Prague Spring, and the Yugoslav wars. Launching a probing study of Austria's long quest for nationhood, Lendvai offers a firsthand look at the factors and players that have influenced this evolving power."--BOOK JACKET.
