The new volume of Contemporary Austrian Studies offers a cross-section of Austrian lives and biographical approaches to recent Austrian history. It presents an array of political lives, including that of Ignaz Seipel and Therese Schlesinger-Eckstein, as well as “Lives of the Mind” which capture the lives of fascinating intellectual figures in pre- and post-World War II Vienna such as Viktor Frankl and Eugenie Schwarzwald.
Contemporary Austrian Studies, which was first published in 1992, is an interdisciplinary social studies journal that covers Austria since 1918 and is designed to complement the older Austrian History Yearbook, which concentrates more on Habsburg history. The publication is jointly published by UNO Press and Innsbruck University Press. Volumes are dedicated to a specific theme chosen annually, with non-topical essays, forums, historiography, roundtables, review essays, book reviews and annual review of Austrian politics complementing each volume.
