The year 1995 marks two decisive anniversaries in the history of modern Austria: 50 years since the ending of the German occupation and 40 years since the signing of the State Treaty and the ending of the Allied occupation. This book will focus on the first ten years of post-war Austria at a time when this period is under critical and popular scrutiny.

'This is a valuable contribution to our knowledge of the critical first ten years of Austria's postwar history . . . readable, well documented and informative . . .There is much food for thought; some of it may even cause indigestion in Austria if, as one hopes, the book finds a wide readership there.' (Forum for Modern Language Studies)

Aussenpolitik

“These interestingly written and soundly investigated studies by British academics reveal that the question of Austrian identity meets with recognition and interest far beyond the Central European region (in which Austria plays a particularly important role).” –Aussenpolitik
