Die Französische Revolution in der Geschichtswissenschaft. - Die Literatur zur Französischen Revolution ist unüberschaubar geworden. Wer sich dennoch einen Überblick verschaffen will und die wichtigsten Werke kennen lernen möchte, kann in diesem Band nachschlagen. - Die Historiker haben die Französische Revolution mehr als die Akteure selbst zum Bezugspunkt verschiedener Weltanschauungen und Interpretationen gemacht. Dieser Band stellt die wichtigsten Werke zu diesem weltgeschichtlichen Ereignis vor und bietet damit einen Überblick über 200 Jahre Revolutionsforschung. Ausgewählt wurden Bücher mit paradigmatischer Ausstrahlungskraft auf spätere Werke. Der Bogen reicht von der zeitgenössischen Revolutionsforschung über die verschiedenen Ansätze der französischen Geschichtswissenschaft bis zur Forschung im deutschen und angelsächsischen Raum. In jedem Beitrag wird ein Werk behandelt, seine thematische Gliederung, seine Entstehung und Überlieferung, die methodischen und historiografischen Leistungen und nicht zuletzt der zeitgenössische Hintergrund, vor dem das Werk entstanden ist und auf den es Rückwirkungen hatte; Hinweise zu den Autoren (Tocqueville, Sorel, Mathiez, Lefebvre, Furet, Sybel, Schulin, Brinton, Arendt und andere) runden die Beiträge ab. Dieser Band dient nicht nur der Examensvorbereitung, sondern auch als Nachschlagewerk für Studierende und alle, die wissen wollen, was über die Französische Revolution geforscht und geschrieben wurde. - Der Herausgeber: Dr. Erich Pelzer ist Professor für Neuere und Neueste Geschichte an der Universität Freiburg.

A monumental history of the nineteenth century, The Transformation of the World offers a panoramic and multifaceted portrait of a world in transition. Jürgen Osterhammel, an eminent scholar who has been called the Braudel of the nineteenth century, moves beyond conventional Eurocentric and chronological accounts of the era, presenting instead a truly global history of breathtaking scope and towering erudition. He examines the powerful and complex forces that drove global change during the "long nineteenth century," taking readers from New York to New Delhi, from the Latin American revolutions to the Taiping Rebellion, from the perils and promise of Europe's transatlantic labor markets to the hardships endured by nomadic, tribal peoples across the planet. Osterhammel describes a world increasingly networked by the telegraph, the steamship, and the railways. He explores the changing relationship between human beings and nature, looks at the importance of cities, explains the role slavery and its abolition played in the emergence of new nations, challenges the widely held belief that the nineteenth century witnessed the triumph of the nation-state, and much more. This is the highly anticipated English edition of the spectacularly successful and critically acclaimed German book, which is also being translated into Chinese, Polish, Russian, and French. Indispensable for any historian, The Transformation of the World sheds important new light on this momentous epoch, showing how the nineteenth century paved the way for the global catastrophes of the twentieth century, yet how it also gave rise to pacifism, liberalism, the trade union, and a host of other crucial developments.

The analysis of a Greek political phenomenon within the confines of the so-called colonial city-states of Sicily and Southern Italy is the theme of the present book. On the basis of detailed case-studies covering the revolutions in cities like Croton, Cumae, Acragas and Syracuse, the following subjects are dealt with: social stratification and political institutions, the massive presence of foreigners and non-Greeks within the borders of the polis, the role of mercenaries in the local armies and in city life. An apart chapter is dedicated to the technique of the coup d'�tat, showing how it was determined by the peculiarities of the Greek city-state.

This third volume in a much praised series on The French Revolution and the Creation of Modern Political Culture examines the way in which the Revolution has been portrayed in European thought and its impact upon the development of political philosophy in the nineteenth century. Opening with the influence of Burke and other contemporaries of the Revolution and the ensuing debate over the question "Why the Terror?", this volume explores such diverse themes as the legacy of the Revolution on the political and social evolution of Germany, England, Italy and Russia; the crisis it brought about in the Catholic Church; and the difficulties encountered in determining the end of the Revolution. By showing that the upheaval in European politics and philosophy caused by the French Revolution continued to shape nations, peoples and thought, the texts brought together in this volume permit a better understanding of the event's extraordinary complexity.
