It doesn't have to be Ausria, imperial Spain is also fine

I have the Martyn Rady book, and while it's not terrible and I learned things from it I wasn't wildly enthused. I've just been having a look at Judson's book on Amazon, which allows you to read the first part, and noticed an error or two even in that brief skim. Rudolf I is called Holy Roman Emperor when he was only German king, then it is asserted no other Habsburg was Emperor until Friedrich III. True, in fact you could leave out 'other', but if Rudolf I counts then what were Albrechts I and II? Chopped liver?

But perhaps surprisingly I wasn't put off, the subject of the book is not dynastic details but rather the institutions of the Habsburg lands from Maria Theresa onwards, and how they affected the lives of the people. And these are things I'd like to know more about, so I do intend to get the book once I've cleared my current reading, somewhat backlogged at present. I'll report back later then, maybe.
