The Emperor and the Peasant

Politics and Government alumnus Kenneth Janda, retired Professor of Political Science from Northwestern University, published a book titled The Emperor and the Peasant: Two Men at the Start of the Great War and at the End of the Habsburg Empire.

The publisher’s release describes the book as a juxtaposition of “the experiences of a monarch and a peasant on the Eastern Front during World War I.” The book, however, according to Panda, “is not just an historical narrative about World War I and Slavic immigration to America. It reflects my wife’s history.”

The book will be published this fall (2017) by McFarland and Co.
