Winner of the 1989 Austrian Cultural Institute Prize


"William McCagg has done a great service for scholarship - and for Habsburg scholarship in particular - through his book. Scholars are in his debt." History of European Ideas " ... strongly recommended to those interested in either Jewish or Habsburg history." American Historical Review "... McCagg tells a fascinating story with expert knowledge, with the sure eye and sound judgment of the experienced historian ..." Midstream " ... exceptionally fine research and the time frame of the study which make it quite remarkable and original." German Politics & Society "William McCagg brings out the extent to which Jews were divided not only as Jews, but also as citizens of Austro-Hungary ... McCagg writes perceptively of Kafka's predicament as a German-speaking Jew in Prague, living through the Czech nationalist revival ..." New York Review of Books
