Minutes of the Council of Ministers

of Austria and the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy 1848-1918

 

Documentary collection with textual critic and scientific comment.

 

The revolution of March 1848 - after a long absolutistic period - opened the way to constitutional development in Austria. The first achievement was made by installing responsible ministers and a responsible council of ministers. This institution, with changing fortune though, existed until the end of the Monarchy. The most drastic change was caused by the "Compromise" with Hungary in 1867, by which a Common Council of Ministers was founded. The Austrian as well as the Common Council of Ministers was the focus of all governmental activities of the Austrian Empire and the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, respectively. Thus, the Minutes of the Council of Ministers offer an important historical source. Their range of topics reflects all aspects of public life, the structure and organization of the state as well as economic, social and cultural development.

The edition is a joint undertaking of Austrian and Hungarian historians.
