Charles Ingrao is professor emeritus at Purdue University, a prodigious historian of Habsburg central Europe, and an advocate for active resolution in the countries of former Yugoslavia. He joins History PhD graduate student James Gresock to discuss the newly published third edition of his book, The Habsburg Monarchy: 1618-1815.
