American Historical Review

"It is perhaps appropriate that this new collection of essays should issue from the Central European University, itself a production ot postimperial Mitteleuropa. The broad perspective and comparative method used in many of these essays, their diverse foci, and the international roster of authors all add to the book's interest and value. This collection brings together new insights, methodologies, and views of how empires work and what constituted an empire. For anyone wanting a better grasp of this complex phenomenon or to get acquainted with the best recent scholarship on the topic, the volume is a must read."
