The Mongols and the West provides a comprehensive survey of relations between the Catholic West and the Mongol Empire from the first appearance of Chinggis (Genghis) Khan’s armies on Europe’s horizons in 1221 to the battle of Tannenberg in 1410. This book has been designed to provide a synthesis of previous scholarship on relations between the Mongols and the Catholic world as well as to offer new approaches and conclusions on the subject. It considers the tension between Western hopes of the Mongols as allies against growing Muslim powers and the Mongols’ position as conquerors with their own agenda, and evaluates the impact of Mongol-Western contacts on the West’s expanding knowledge of the world. This second edition takes into account the wealth of scholarly literature that has emerged in the years since the previous edition and contains significantly extended chapters on trade and mission. It charts the course of military confrontation and diplomatic relations between the Mongols and the West, and re-examines the commercial opportunities offered to Western merchants by Mongol rule and the failure of Catholic missionaries to convert the Mongols to Christianity. Fully revised and containing a range of maps, genealogical tables and both European and non-European sources throughout, The Mongols and the West is ideal for students of medieval European history and the crusades.

The World Order Since 1500

This timely book provides a general overview of Great Power politics and world order from 1500 to the present. Jeremy Black provides several historical case-studies, each of which throws light on both the power in question and the international system of the period, and how it had developed from the preceding period. The point of departure for this book is Paul Kennedy’s 1988 masterpiece, The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers. That iconic book, with its enviable mastery of the sources and its skilful integration of political, military and economic history, was a great success when it appeared and has justifiably remained important since. Written during the Cold War, however, Kennedy’s study was very much of its time in its consideration of the great powers in ‘Western’ terms, and its emphasis on economics. This book brings together strategic studies, international relations, military history and geopolitics to answer some of the contemporary questions left open by Professor Kennedy's great work, and also looks to the future of great power relations and of US hegemony. Great Powers and the Quest for Hegemony will be of great interest to students of international relations, strategic studies and international history.

Wodurch zeichnen sich Imperien aus? Welche Gefahren birgt eine imperiale Ordnung? Und welche Chancen bietet sie? Mit einem Mal sind diese Fragen nicht mehr nur von historischem Interesse. Die USA haben inzwischen eine Vormachtstellung inne, die viele für bedrohlich halten. Bestimmen die Politiker in Washington die Regeln, denen der Rest der Welt zu folgen hat? Oder gibt es eine Logik der Weltherrschaft, der auch sie sich beugen müssen? Herfried Münkler zeigt, wie ein Imperium funktioniert und welche Arten von Imperien es in der Vergangenheit gegeben hat. Ein souveräner Gang durch die Geschichte und zugleich die brillante Analyse eines hochaktuellen Themas.

Vom Ende Des Kalifates in Bagdad Über Aleppo Zu Den Restaurationen in Kairo

The end of the Abbasid caliphate in Baghdad during the Mongol wars of the 13th century was one of the decisive events of Islamic history. Das Aleppiner Kalifat (AD 1261) deals with the fate of the institution from the Mongol sack of Baghdad through the short-lived Aleppine caliphate to its restoration, in Mamluk Cairo. The often parallel developments and motivations of the historical figures are analyzed step-by-step. The author explores the relations between the events, revealing the contingent character of the restoration. The key for the new interpretation is the Aleppine caliphate. Emphasis is given to the changing patterns of legitimization and of representation of political power. An extensive political chronography and a detailed numismatic corpus for all major towns in the regions (Egypt, Syria, Northern Mesopotamia, Iraq) and period concerned (1257-1262) serve as reference.

In the Middle Ages more than in other periods, eschatology informed the way people understood humankind and the world. The papers in the present volume are devoted to the complexity and interconnectivty of the eschatological orientation of the Middle Ages. Central topics are questions of the influence and formation of eschatological themes in philosophy and the significance of ideas of the final end in medieval political thought. In addition, there is a consideration of further themes from history, theology, art and literature. The 29th volume of the Miscellanea Mediaevalia contains the papers delivered to the 32nd Cologne Medieval Studies Conference plus additional contributions. The volume includes five papers on the 50-year history of the Thomas Institute, which has been organising the Cologne Medieval Studies Conference for the last half century.

Dieses eBook: "Waverley: Historischer Roman" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Edward Waverley stammt aus englischem Adel. Während sein Vater in London eine politische Karriere als Parteigänger der Whigs macht, damals die Unterstützer der Monarchen aus dem Haus Hannover, wird Waverley von seinem Onkel aufgezogen, der ihm die alten jakobitischen Werte vermittelt, also die der Anhänger des Hauses Stuart. Auf Wunsch seines Vaters beginnt Edward eine Laufbahn als Offizier beim britischen Militär. Wegen eines Missverständnisses und wegen falscher Anschuldigungen kann er von einem Urlaub in den schottischen Highlands nicht zurückkehren und schließt sich dem zu dieser Zeit (1745) in Schottland ausbrechenden zweiten Jakobitenaufstand an der Seite von Charles Edward Stuart an, der den britischen Thron mit Unterstützung insbesondere aus den schottischen Highlands von der 1714 durch den Hannoveraner Georg I. begründeten britischen Dynastie für die Stuarts zurückerobern möchte. Walter Scott (1771-1832) war ein schottischer Dichter und Schriftsteller.
