Summary
"The Developmentof Austro-Hungarian Sarajevo, 1878-1918, charts the urban history of Sarajevo between 1878 and 1918 within the context of other modernising central-European cities. It gives detailed consideration to elements of change and continuity in the development of the urban fabric, as well as the economic, social and cultural life of the city. The book also explores how far changes were the work of the occupying Austro-Hungarian administration and the influx of immigrants from elsewhere, and how far the local elites took an active role in the redevelopment of their own city. Numerous case studies of particular buildings and their owners and maps illustrating the chronological development of the city during the period are used throughout the book to highlight aspects of the aforementioned themes. Material from a range of sources, including census records, directories, newspapers, government documents, planning records and photographs, is also used to augment observations and arguments developed in this important study for all students and scholars of modern Central and Eastern Europe"--
