Transformation of the World
€ 24.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

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 Europes 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.

Germany in 1844 ... - a country without individual and political freedom or independence, - a country divided into small kingdoms and principalities, - a country far behind the developments of a modern democratic state, - a country with its inhabitants suffering from poverty and misery. A group of noblemen offers help to all disappointed and desperate Germans. They advertise for Germans wanting to emigrate to Texas in the Southwest, where they wish to create a new Germany. Thousands accept the offer of the ´´Society for the Protection of German Immigrants in Texas´´ and depart for North America. One of these is the revolutionary Karl Engelbach. To avoid persecution, he and his son Johann have to leave their small farm in northern Hesse one night in March of 1844. Father and son are forced to undertake a dangerous flight through their divided country until they arrive in Bremen, where they take a ship sailing to Charleston. After their arrival in South Carolina, there is still a long way to Texas, and the Engelbachs have to deal with many difficulties to get there. In Texas they join the other German settlers and continue their journey from the coast into the heart of the wild, uncivilized Texas, where they and the other German settlers have to struggle with perilous dangers. Will they ever reach their Promised Land? Or will the Texas project of the Noblemen´s Society end in disaster? Barbara Ortwein combines the story of her fictional characters Johann and Karl Engelbach with the real story of the actual people involved in this historical project, which took place in Germany and Texas in 1844 to 1847. Her special focus in this, the first book of her Texas saga, is Germany in 1844. Through her plot she explains why the Germans of this time were so keen to leave their country and follow the call of the Noblemen´s Society: ´´Geh mit nach Texas!´´ (´´Come with us to Texas!´´) ------------------- At her lectures in many places throughout Germany she has been rewarded with the great interest of her German audiences. The Germans were astonished to hear about people who had lived in their communities long ago, but had suddenly disappeared during the 19th century to start a new life in another part of the world. Her readers demanded to know more of the almost-forgotten stories of their country folk who emigrated to Texas. To fulfill their wish Barbara Ortwein started the sequel ´´In the Middle of Texas but Not At The End,´´ which will appear at the Leipzig Book Fair in March of 2015. The idea to translate her first book into English had been discussed eagerly with her two translators Lisa Mays and Pamela Phillips, both teachers at Texas High Schools and colleagues of Barbara Ortwein. It now becomes reality.

Campus Historische Studien Herausgegeben von Rebekka Habermas, Heinz-Gerhard Haupt, Stefan Rebenich, Frank Rexroth und Michael Wildt Wie wurde naturkundliches Wissen im 18.Jahrhundert im Alltag ´´gemacht´´? Entgegen älterer Ansätze begreift Anne Mariss in ihrer Studie naturhistorisches Forschen nicht als aufklärerisch-fortschrittsorientierten Prozess, sondern als ein zukunftsoffenes Wirken von Ideen und wissenschaftlichen Theorien einerseits, sozialen und kulturellen Praktiken andererseits. Ausgehend von der Person Johann Reinhold Forsters, der durch die zweite Weltumsegelung James Cooks (1772 - 1775) internationale Anerkennung erfuhr, an Bekanntheit jedoch hinter seinem Sohn Georg Forster zurücksteht, gelingt es ihr, die europäische Wissenslandschaft und deren globale Netzwerke aufscheinen zu lassen.

Why Did Europe Conquer the World?
€ 24.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Between 1492 and 1914, Europeans conquered 84 percent of the globe. But why did Europe rise to the top, when for centuries the Chinese, Japanese, Ottomans, and South Asians were far more advanced? Why didnt these powers establish global dominance? In Why Did Europe Conquer the World?, distinguished economic historian Philip Hoffman demonstrates that conventional responses - such as geography, epidemic disease, and the Industrial Revolution - fail to provide answers. Arguing instead for the pivotal role of economic and political history, Hoffman shows that if variables had been at all different, Europe would not have achieved critical military innovations, and another power could have become master of the world.

An Emerging Modern World, fourth in the six-volume series A History of the World, charts this transformative period outside the West.
