State (de-)formation in practice: Bohemian fiscal-financial arrangements during the war of the Spanish succession


Sander-Faes, Stephan Karl (2019). State (de-)formation in practice: Bohemian fiscal-financial arrangements during the war of the Spanish succession. In: Scholz Williams, Gerhild; Haude, Sigrun; Schneider, Christian. Rethinking Europe: war and peace in early modern German lands. Amsterdam: Brill, 315-340.

Abstract

This essay focuses on the consequences of fiscal-financial arrangements during the War of the Spanish Succession. Using the example of Bohemia in the Habsburg mon- archy, I demonstrate that taxation and borrowing had integrative as well as disintegra- tive consequences, which come into view only from a perspective outside the court and when reconstructed from below the social elites. This essay’s focus on local actors and regional interlinkages offers new insights and a complementary perspective to the established field of state formation.
