520    Eva H. Balazs, one of the foremost living authorities on 
       eighteenth century Central Europe, examines a crucial 
       period in the co-existence of the Austrian hereditary 
       provinces and Hungary. In a Europe torn by wars and 
       revolutions, in the last third of the eighteenth century, 
       political, economic and personal factors interwined to 
       determine the fortunes of the Austrian rulers and the 
       subjects of the Hungarian crown who collaborated with them
       in a subordinated status. Rejecting commonplaces of the 
       centre-periphery approach, the author argues that the 
       Habsburg monarchy was a 'centre' whose reforms in this 
       period inspired all subsequent movements for reform in 
       Eastern and Central Europe. Professor Balazs's skill in 
       combining great wealth of archival material -- not only 
       from Austria, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, but 
       (unprecedented in this field) also from France, gives the 
       reader a near-contemporary proximity to the figures and 
       developments discussed.
