Knapp. This is not because Knapp's work is not honest- ly and diligently written, but because it lacks an original approach. It is quite dependent on the German-Austrian historiography, so that it may be useful for those who cannot read the important older German-language books by Ludwig Briigel, Julius Deutsch, and Emil Strauss, or the newer ones by Ru-
