Abstract

Bucovina was an integral part of Habsburg Empire since 1775. Starting from a pure political construction on the European map of power at the end of 18th century this small area developed into a well integrated Austrian crown land. A crown land, which succeeded to form a certain regional identity – conform to the Habsburg state ideology. Till the outbreak of First World War national rivalries played a certain role for regional politics in the county but were moderate in general. Especially this situation was grounded in a direct liaison of this small province situated on the Eastern slopes of Carpathians with Vienna as imperial centre. A development which aimed towards steadily improving inner consolidation and balance in comparison with the other crown lands of the Empire. Only the outcome of the First World War, as Bucovina became part of the Romanian kingdom, loosing its geo strategic position as a bridge between East and West, showed in its consequences the former importance of this organic exchange with Vienna, shaping the provinces society and cultural landscape. The genesis of Bucovina region at the periphery of a European Empire from the end of 18th up to the beginning of 20th century as well as the structural persistence of the cultural landscape’s characteristics is centrally focussed in this study. The analyses of spatial processes as well as their genesis, shaped by a changing geopolitical situation, were of main interest for the research. Since the midst of 19th century a serious and existential national tension within the Bucovina was growing which could only partially be influenced by the province politics itself. A tension in between a search for a distinguished political position, the new idea of nation state and a overall-covering ideology of Commonness, a tension between growing regional identity, of beeing Bucovina and increasing national claims. The study tries to draw a knew, integral and less known picture of this variously shaped cultural landscape – apart from common nationalistic and segmented analyses.

Abstract

"Democracy is today a concept that is overwhelmingly positively evaluated almost everywhere. A lot has been written about socio-economic and cultural backgrounds of democratic regimes as well as their institutional settings. By contrast, not much is known about the political manoeuvres and speech acts by which 'democracy' has been tied to particular regions and cultures in concrete historical situations. This book discusses a series of efforts to rhetorically produce a particular Nordic version of democracy. It shows that the rhetorical figure 'Nordic democracy' was a product of the age of totalitarianism and the Cold War. It explores the ways in which 'Nordic democracy' was used, mainly by the social democrats, to provide the welfare politics with cultural and historical legitimacy and foundations. Thus, it also acknowledges the ideological and geopolitical context in which the 'Nordic welfare state' was conceptualised and canonised. The contributors of the book are specialists on Nordic politics and history, who share a particular interest in political rhetoric and conceptual history. "

Abstract

This book closes a gap in access to the archival tradition of the Stormarn district. It makes accessible the tradition of the three offices Reinfeld, Rethwisch and Traventhal, which together with the offices Reinbek, Trittau and Tremsbüttel covered approximately the area of today's Stormarn district. It now is kept in the Schleswig-Holstein State Archives and called Department (Abteilung) 109. Until 1867, i.e. up to the beginning of the Prussian era, the lower administrative districts of Schleswig and Holstein were the provincial administrative districts In the dukedoms of Schleswig and Holstein. In simple terms, they can be described as the predecessors of today's administrative districts. The offices had administrative, legal and fiscal responsibilities. The stock of the Dept. (Abt.) 109 which can now be used comfortably with this find book comprises 60 metres of archive material,. It makes over three hundred years of Stormarn's history from the middle of the 16th century to 1867 accessibble. The documents, official records, official and protocol books, as well as the almost complete official accounts document the social and everyday history of the rural population, the mutual relations between town and country, the work of the administration and jurisdiction, the development of services and taxes, but also the effects of armed conflict on the offices. If you would like to know something about these and similar topics of Stormarn's history today, you can find out the relevant archive material by means of a thematic classification system and, in addition, by means of a detailed register of persons, places and subjects.

Abstract

This is the first part of the third volume of the four-volume series, a daring project of CEU Press, presenting the most important texts that triggered and shaped the processes of nation-building in the many countries of Central and Southeast Europe. The aim is to confront ‘mainstream’ and seemingly successful national discourses with each other, thus creating a space for analyzing those narratives of identity which became institutionalized as “national canons.” This is the first part of the...
