Abstract

Das Verhältnis von Deutschen und Russen wird oft im Kontext von Kriegen und politischen Spannungen thematisiert. Aber eine derartige Sicht trennt auch das, was verbindet. Tatsächlich hat es im Laufe der Jahrhunderte nicht nur wechselseitige starke Migrationsbewegungen gegeben (Deutschland war zunächst eines der bevorzugten Fluchtländer der russischen Flüchtlinge nach der Russischen Revolution, Russland zog zur Zeit der Zarin Katharina deutsche Aussiedler an), sondern immer haben beide Kulturen auch stark aufeinander gewirkt. Am Schicksal der Russlanddeutschen zeigt sich in besonderer Prägnanz Fluch und Segen einer Existenz zwischen den Kulturen. Hier kann der Blick einzelnen Russlanddeutschen (wie dem letzten lutherischen Pastor von Tomsk) oder grundsätzlichen Überlegungen zur Geschichte und zum Selbstverständnis der Russlanddeutschen gelten. Umgekehrt werden Migrantenschicksale deutlich, die gerade deren Situation zwischen den Kulturen zum Teil tragisch verdeutlichen (Henry von Heiseler, Alexander Schmorell), die Wirkung russischer Kultur auf die deutsche erörtert etwa der Aufsatz zur Dostojewskij-Rezeption der dialektischen Theologen, während die studentische Arbeit zu Dostojewskijs Gotteslästerungsthematik im Großinquisitor ein Stück heutiger Rezeption bietet. Die Schlagwörter Märtyrer und Migranten belegen die gegenwärtig die Gesellschaften in Deutschland und Russland unterschiedlich bewegenden Tendenzen öffentlicher bzw. kultureller Diskurse, deren direkte Vergleichbarkeit nicht von vornherein gegeben ist.

Abstract

This final chapter takes up these questions, mining some of our ethnographies for support. One of these is the basis for a short diversion to a Turkish coffeehouse in what used to be the edge of West Berlin. This is a marginal story that turns out to be central, allowing us to suggest that among the multiple Europes circulating and bickering in the air around us, there are still some others yet to be brought into sight. After this, we close the book with some practical comments about what, in this time of perceived crisis, should be done to re-orient ideas of the European past at the level of heritage practice.

Abstract

The European project Multisward ( http://www.multisward.eu/multisward_eng/ ) aims at supporting developments and innovations in grassland use and management in different European farming systems (including low-input and organic farming systems), pedoclimatic and socio-economic conditions i) to enhance the role of grasslands at farm and landscape levels to produce environmental goods and to limit the erosion of biodiversity and ii) to optimise economic, agronomic and nutritional advantages for the development of innovative and sustainable ruminant production systems. The identification of the innovations and their implementation required an exhaustive analysis of the state of grasslands and herbivore production in Europe including how they changed over decades. The effects of public policies were investigated. The results of this analysis are published in the present book.

Abstract

En 2008, on a beaucoup évoqué et commémoré l'année 1968. L'année 1969 n'a pas la même renommée et pourtant elle mérite, elle aussi, l'attention des chercheurs, ne serait-ce qu'en raison d'un certain nombre d'événements qui sont autant de ruptures ou de nouvelles étapes à l'intérieur de différents processus. En Europe, Willy Brandt, Eward Heath (1970), Bruno Kreisky (1970), Olof Palme, Georges Pompidou, mais également Marcelo Caetano et Gustav Husak arrivent sur le devant de la scène. Ces remplacements de responsables constituent-il de véritables ruptures idéologiques, générationnelles ou socioculturelles ? Ne vaudrait-il pas mieux parler d'alternances, de relèves ou de changements dans la continuité ? Dans les dictatures en tout cas, la relève n'implique aucune mutation majeure... Dans l'ombre de 1968, l'année 1969 apparaît, à travers huit communications, comme un moment moins fiévreux pendant lequel l'ampleur des renouvellements, souvent modestes, varie cependant nettement selon les États considérés.

Abstract

Le Saint-Empire Romain Germanique paraît difficilement représentable du fait de son morcellement et de sa discontinuité: plusieurs centaines de principautés, imbriquées les unes dans les autres par la complexité des liens féodaux, lui « appartiennent ». Le Saint-Empire semble également offrir toutes les caractéristiques de l'espace géographique, avec des différences d'échelles et des espaces divers aux contours fluctuants qui s'agencent en configurations variables : villes capitales, résidences, villes libres, cercles, territoires, etc. L'Espace du Saint-Empire rassemble les contributions de quatorze historiens allemands et français invités à confronter leurs catégories spatiales et leur définition de l'espace impérial, à réfléchir aux spatialisations parallèles ou concurrentes qui le fondent. Une « géographie volontaire » du Saint-Empire peut ainsi se dessiner à travers trois thèmes : les limites, le territoire et les pratiques.

Abstract

God's diplomat, the pope of the ecumenical movement, but also an acerbic theologian and a difficult person: this is how journalists characterised Willem Adolf Visser 't Hooft (1900-1985). He was one of the best-known Dutch theologians outside the Netherlands and he left his mark on the world church. Even at an early age he made profound efforts in support of international ecumenical youth and student organisations (Dutch Student Christian Movement, YMCA and World Student Christian Federation). He led the World Council of Churches during its formative stages (from 1938), and after its formal establishment in 1948 became its first general secretary, serving until 1966. To Visser 't Hooft, the unity of the church was both an article of faith and of a pragmatic organisation of church influence in a disunited world.

Abstract

This book is an essential reference guide for students of West European politics and West European area studies. A perfect companion to European politics today (by the same authors), it contains details of major events, political leaders, important dates, organisations and recent elections, all in an accessible, easy-to-read format. A comprehensive reference work, the book also provides a sound historical background for students of contemporary Europe. It covers the information and terms of reference students need to know to understand developments in European politics from the Second World War to the present day. Much of the book is devoted to those European countries most often featured in comparative courses in colleges and universities: the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy and Spain as well as the European Union. Also included are details of personalities and events which have proved decisive for smaller and less familiar European democracies. From Resistance leaders to presidents, civil wars to scandals, the forces shaping the Europe of today are detailed in this book. This book is ideal for undergraduate students on politics, European studies and area studies courses.

Abstract

This book looks at the important issues in British politics since 1945, including a brief guide to the changing political culture of Britain in that period. It will be essential reading for all students studying politics at A2 level, as it covers all the important issues required by the main examining boards. Neil McNaughton is a seasoned writer at this level. He begins by reviewing the changing nature of the principal political ideologies - Conservatism, Labourism and Liberalism - before discussing how these ideological changes impact generally on policy developments in the UK. Having described the changing nature of the political culture, addressing partisan dealignment, changing morality, the decline of religion and class fragmentation, he examines, on a chapter by chapter basis, the key issues of British politics today: the economy, the welfare state, law and order, race relations, the particular problems affecting Northern Ireland, devolution, constitutional reform, rights, the environment, issues of gender and sexual orientation, European integration and the European Union, the impact of the European Union on Britain, ending with a brief summary of the issues that are likely to take centre stage in British politics in the first decade of the new century. Written in an accessible style, with helpful features such as summaries, definitions, tables and boxes to illuminate the points made, this book is urgently needed as students grapple with the issues thrown up by the new examinations.

Abstract

Destination Europe interprets and interrelates the major political, economic and security developments in Europe - including transatlantic relations - from the end of the Second World War up until the present time, and looks ahead to how the continent may evolve politically in the future. The book fills a definite lacuna in the current literature on Europe, as most studies cover only specific aspects, such as the European Union. Destination Europe by contrast weaves all the different strands of European events together into a single overall and up-to-date picture and gives the reader a deeper understanding of the continent and its current and future challenges. The first chapters trace European reconstruction and political, economic and security developments - both in the East and in the West - leading up to the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. Later chapters examine the European Union's reform efforts, enlargement, movement to a single currency and emerging security role; the political and economic changes in central and Eastern Europe, including Russia; the break-up of Yugoslavia and the wars that ensued; and NATO's enlargement and search for a new mission. Final chapters deal with forces affecting Europe's future such as terrorism, nationalism, religion, demographic trends and globalisation. Comprehensive, detailed and accessible, this book is a perfect introductory level text for undergraduate students of European Politics and European History
