Available in both one-volume and two-volume paperback editions, A History of Modern Europe presents a panoramic survey of modern Europe from the Renaissance to the present day. A single author lends a unified approach and consistent style throughout, with an emphasis on the connections of events and people over time. The Third Edition, like the two before it, is authoritative and up-to-date. New to the Third Edition is the theme of empire. From the imperial rivalries between France and Spain in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, through the rise and fall of the Ottoman Turkish empire, and on into the imperial history of the twentieth century—decolonization, the spread of the Soviet empire, and the imperial power of the United States—the theme of empire helps students find commonalities among the events of European history.

Rewriting the Self is an exploration of ideas of the self in the western cultural tradition from the Renaissance to the Present. The contributors analyse differing religious, philosophical, psychological, political, psychoanalytical and literary models of personal identity. They examine these models from a number of viewpoints, including the history of ideas, contemporary gender politics, and post-modernist literary theory. Rewriting the Self offers a challenge to the received version of the 'ascent of western man'. Lively and controversial, the book broaches big questions in an accessible way. Rewriting the Self arises from a seminar series held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London. The contributors include prominent academics from a range of disciplines.

Zu den Gründungsmythen des deutschen Protestantismus gehört die Stilisierung Martin Luthers als ersten Protestanten und deutschen Propheten, dessen Protest gegen die »babylonische Gefangenschaft der Kirche« zur wundersamen Befreiung von der päpstlichen Tyrannei und zum Ausbruch aus dem finsteren Zeitalter des Mittelalters führte. Obermans Essays widerlegen hingegen in streitbarer Auseinandersetzung die These, Martin Luther habe als einsame, revolutionäre Gestalt - gegen seine Zeit - die Moderne eingeläutet. Stattdessen interpretiert er den »reformatorischen Durchbruch« Martin Luthers im Zusammenhang der vielfältigen intellektuellen Strömungen und Frömmigkeitsbewegungen einer vitalen spätmittelalterlichen christlichen Gesellschaft, die bereits eine Vielzahl reformerischer Kräfte in sich barg. Wie schon in seinem früheren Buch über den Reformator führt er dem Leser zudem die überraschende Tatsache vor Augen, dass Luther - trotz seiner theologischen Neuansätze und seiner Entfremdung von der mönchischen Lebensweise - tief im spätmittelalterlichen Weltbild mitsamt seinen antisemitischen Elementen und seinen apokalyptischen Endzeiterwartungen verhaftet blieb. Vor diesem Hintergrund entfaltet der Autor seine spannende Unterscheidung zwischen der von Wittenberg ausgehenden »ersten Reformation«, die für die deutschen Territorialstaaten prägend wurde, und der »zweiten Reformation« des humanistisch inspirierten Protestantismus, die von den protestantischen Flüchtlingen in den freien Städten ausging und eine völlig andere Zukunftsvision vertrat als Luther. Vor allem bei Calvin, dessen Biografie und Denken im zweiten Teil des Buches eingehend interpretiert werden, findet sich statt des Endzeitbewusstseins die Vision eines kulturell und sozial erneuerten Europa, die Oberman als den eigentlichen Beitrag des Protestantismus zur Moderne versteht.

Gleichheit oder Oligarchie, Individualismus oder Unfreiheit, Wahrheit oder Fake News – die Welt, wie wir sie kannten, steht am Scheideweg. Viel hat der Westen selbst dazu beigetragen. Aber er hat auch mächtige Feinde, die seine Institutionen mit allen Mitteln – von der Finanzierung des Rechtspopulismus in Europa bis zum Cyberwar – untergraben wollen. Wer diese Gegner sind, wie sie vorgehen und wie bedrohlich die Lage ist, das beschreibt das aufsehenerregende neue Buch von Tim Snyder. Mit dem Ende des Kalten Krieges hatten die liberalen Demokratien des Westens gesiegt. Von nun an würde die Menschheit eine friedvolle, globalisierte Zukunft erwarten. Doch das war ein Irrtum. Seit Putin seine Macht in Russland etabliert hat, rollt eine Welle des Autoritarismus von Osten nach Westen, die Europ... a erfasst hat und mit Donald Trump auch im Weißen Haus angekommen ist. Tim Snyder, Autor des Weltbestsellers «Über Tyrannei», beschreibt in seinem Buch den Aufstieg dieser neuen «rechten Internationalen», schildert ihre bedrohlichen Ziele und zeigt, wie sehr die Grundlagen unserer Demokratie in Gefahr sind.

The Price of Freedom surveys and explains the fascinating and intricate history of East Central Europe - the present day countries of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. Taking a thematic approach, the author explores such issues and controversies as the tension between the industrial developed West and the agrarian East Central Europe, the rise of modern nationalism, democracy and authoritarianism and Communism. While the countries of East Central Europe have differed dramatically from one another, the author asserts that they have been bound by a certain community of fate. These comparisons are traced through the Middle Ages and the Early Modern era to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This exploration reveals that it is no accident that the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland were the first among the former Soviet bloc nations to be admitted to NATO, and are likely to become the first members of the expanded European Union. Thus an understanding of their experiences, contributions and their place within the European community of nations vastly enriches our knowledge of Europe's past and present. The second edition of this distinguished book brings the history of the region up to date. It discusses the events of the post-communist decade of the 1990s and the problems resulting from the transition to democracy and market economy.

Die Medici umgibt bis heute der Mythos einer Dynastie unermesslich reicher und kunstsinniger Herrscher, die das moderne Bankwesen erfanden und ihre Heimatstadt Florenz mit den schönsten Werken der Renaissance schmückten. Tatsächlich brauchte man im Florenz des 15. Jahrhunderts mehr als finanzielles Geschick, um sich an der Macht zu halten: Geld gegen Zins zu verleihen, galt der Kirche als Wucher. Die Macht der Medici stand auf schwankendem Boden, wie Tim Parks zeigt. Die Bank, 1397 gegründet, brach bereits 1494 zusammen. Knapp 100 Jahre, die unser Verständnis der Beziehung zwischen Hochkultur und Kreditwesen sowie von der Verquickung von Religion und Politik entscheidend prägen sollten.

Models of the History of Philosophy. From its Origins in the Renaissance to the `Historia philosophica' (a translation of a work published in 1981 in Italian - the bibliography has been updated) gives a comprehensive description of the various forms and approaches in the literature of the history of philosophy from the fifteenth to the middle of the seventeenth century. Several traditions are described, from the well known `prisca theologia' and `perennis philosophia' traditions of Marsilio Ficino and Augustino Steuco, which claimed that the Greeks got their philosophy from the East, to the unknown influence of Scepticism on the history of philosophy by the recovery of Sextus Empiricus, and the German Protestant critical attack on Greek philosophy as Atheistic which was the tradition of the history of philosophy out of which Leibniz developed. Each individual historian of philosophy is given a separate entry which includes a biography, a complete bibliography of his works, a description of his history of philosophy and ends with both an assessment of his reputation during his own time and a complete listing of recent literature on him. As a result the substantial variety in the way the history of philosophy was written and, with it, an overview of the way western civilization developed is described in detail for the first time. For university history of literature, history of culture, history of religion and history of philosophy classes. The book can be used both for undergraduate courses (for specific reading assignments) and as background material for graduate courses. The bibliography provides important aids to many topics which have previously been almost inaccessible.
