Product description

Review

"Vast in scope and profound in learning, Wolfram Siemann's masterpiece, deftly translated by Daniel Steuer, refreshes every theme it touches and situates its protagonist in a landscape charged with texture and new meaning. At its center is a compelling and humane portrait of one of the most gifted and interesting statesmen of modern times. But this is more than a biography - it is a window into the heart of Europe's nineteenth century." - Christopher Clark, author of Iron Kingdom and The Sleepwalkers
 
"So rich is this wonderful book in insight and information, so brilliantly does it illuminate Metternich's exciting times, that no review can hope to do justice to its author's achievement. Every general history of the period between the outbreak of the French Revolution and the revolutions of 1848 will need to be rewritten. It is a long book, but consistently stimulating, entertaining, even enthralling." - Tim Blanning, GHIL Bulletin
 
"A great reassessment of one of the most dazzling and controversial statesmen of the nineteenth century." - Lesart
 
"A masterpiece." - Neue Zürcher Zeitung
 
"This outstanding German historian offers the definitive biography of the Austrian statesman and completely collapses our negative image of him - a brilliant book that leaves nothing to be desired." - NRC Handelsblad
