History NEA

I am in the process of doing my history and have decided on the topic of the Collapse of the Habsburg Empire but I am really struggling to find historians interpretations for it. I have tried looking on Jstor and other academic articles and book but think that it is too broad. Is it only supposed to be a paragraph like in the exams or longer??
Can someone please give me some advice on how to find interpretations??

Look at the bibliographies of articles about the Habsburg empire. For example, the wiki page includes books by AJP Taylor and Alan Sked. Samuel Williamson is the best historian I know on the specific topic of Austria-Hungary and WWI.
