Download The Viking World book, Filling a gap in the literature for an academically oriented volume on the Viking period, this unique book is a one-stop authoritative introduction to all the latest research in the field.

This original work, specifically oriented towards a university audience and the educated public, will have a self-evident place as an undergraduate course book and will be a standard work of reference for all those in the field.

Handbuch Geschichte Der Sklaverei

by Michael Zeuske, Handbuch Geschichte Der Sklaverei Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Handbuch Geschichte Der Sklaverei book, Michael Zeuske hat sein Standardwerk für die zweite Auflage komplett überarbeitet und aktualisiert sowie deutlich erweitert. Die Geschichte der Sklaverei wird in diesem Handbuch erstmalig in globalgeschichtlicher Perspektive systematisch dargestellt. Ausgangspunkt ist ein Verständnis von Sklaverei als Kapitalisierung menschlicher Körper. Analysiert werden die unterschiedlichsten Formen, Typen und Entwicklungsepochen (Plateaus) von Sklavereien und Menschenhandelssystemen – auf allen Kontinenten, Ozeanen und Meeren, in ihrer jeweiligen Benennung und ihrem historisch-kulturellen Kontext. Auf breiter empirischer Basis entsteht auf diese Weise eine Geschichte der Sklaverei, die ca. 10.000 v. u. Z. begann und bis in die heutige Zeit andauert.

Die Slawen Im Mittelalter Zwischen Idee Und Wirklichkeit

by Eduard Mühle, Die Slawen Im Mittelalter Zwischen Idee Und Wirklichkeit Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Die Slawen Im Mittelalter Zwischen Idee Und Wirklichkeit book, Europa ist mit rund 250 Mio. Sprechern slawischer Sprachen zu über einem Drittel „slawisch". Was bedeutet das für das Verständnis europäischer Kultur und Geschichte? Verfügt der slawischsprachige Bevölkerungsteil Europas über ein besonderes „slawisches" Bewusstsein, eine spezifische „slawische" Kultur und Geschichte? Ausgehend von dieser Frage erzählt Eduard Mühle die Geschichte der „Slawen" im Mittelalter völlig neu. Auf der Grundlage eingehender Quellenstudien entwirft er eine doppelte Perspektive. Zum einen beschreibt er die realen historischen Strukturen – von den „frühslawischen" Bevölkerungsgruppen und ihren ersten Herrschaftsbildungen im 7. bis 9. Jahrhundert, über die slawischsprachigen Reiche und nationes des 10. bis 12. bis zu den spätmittelalterlichen Gesellschaften des 13. bis frühen 15. Jahrhunderts . Zum anderen untersucht er die Fremd- und Selbstbilder, mit deren Hilfe die „Slawen" seit dem 6. Jahrhundert immer wieder als ein kulturelles Konstrukt entworfen bzw. „erfunden" worden sind und zeigt, wie diese Bilder schon im Mittelalter in verschiedenen Kontexten und zu unterschiedlichen Zwecken geschichtspolitisch instrumentalisiert wurden.

Viking Kings Of Britain And Ireland

by Clare Downham, Viking Kings Of Britain And Ireland Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Viking Kings Of Britain And Ireland book, Vikings plagued the coasts of Ireland and Britain in the 790s. By the mid-ninth century vikings had established a number of settlements in Ireland and Britain and had become heavily involved with local politics. A particularly successful viking leader named Ivarr campaigned on both sides of the Irish Sea in the 860s. His descendants dominated the major seaports of Ireland and challenged the power of kings in Britain during the later ninth and tenth centuries. This book provides a political analysis of the deeds of Ivarr's family from their first appearance in Insular records down to the year 1014. Such an account is necessary in light of the flurry of new work that has been done in other areas of Viking Studies. In line with these developments Clare Downham provides a reconsideration of events based on contemporary written accounts.

Viking Age Trade

by Jacek Gruszczyński, Viking Age Trade Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Viking Age Trade book, That there was an influx of silver dirhams from the Muslim world into eastern and northern Europe in the ninth and tenth centuries is well known, as is the fact that the largest concentration of hoards is on the Baltic island of Gotland. Recent discoveries have shown that dirhams were reaching the British Isles, too. What brought the dirhams to northern Europe in such large numbers? The fur trade has been proposed as one driver for transactions, but the slave trade offers another – complementary – explanation. This volume does not offer a comprehensive delineation of the hoard finds, or a full answer to the question of what brought the silver north. But it highlights the trade in slaves as driving exchanges on a trans-continental scale. By their very nature, the nexuses were complex, mutable and unclear even to contemporaries, and they have eluded modern scholarship. Contributions to this volume shed light on processes and key places: the mints of Central Asia; the chronology of the inflows of dirhams to Rus and northern Europe; the reasons why silver was deposited in the ground and why so much ended up on Gotland; the functioning of networks – perhaps comparable to the twenty-first-century drug trade; slave-trading in the British Isles; and the stimulus and additional networks that the Vikings brought into play. This combination of general surveys, presentations of fresh evidence and regional case studies sets Gotland and the early medieval slave trade in a firmer framework than has been available before.

Rus Ukraine Russia

by Martin C. Putna, Rus Ukraine Russia Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Rus Ukraine Russia book, An outspoken opponent of pro-Russian, authoritarian, and far-right streams in contemporary Czech society, Martin C. Putna received a great deal of media attention when he ironically dedicated the Czech edition of Russ–Ukraine–Russia to Miloš Zeman—the pro-Russian president of the Czech Republic. This sense of irony, combined with an extraordinary breadth of scholarly knowledge, infuses Putna’s book. Examining key points in Russian cultural and spiritual history, Russ–Ukraine–Russia is essential reading for those wishing to understand the current state of Russia and Ukraine—the so-called heir to an “alternative Russia.” Putna uses literary and artistic works to offer a rich analysis of Russia as a cultural and religious phenomenon: tracing its development from the arrival of the Greeks in prehistoric Crimea to its invasion by “little green men” in 2014; explaining the cultural importance in Russ of the Vikings as well as Pussy Riot; exploring central Russian figures from St. Vladimir the Great to Vladimir Putin. Unique in its postcolonial perspective, this is not merely a history of Russia or of Russian religion. This book presents Russia as a complex mesh of national, religious, and cultural (especially countercultural) traditions—with strong German, Mongol, Jewish, Catholic, Polish, and Lithuanian influences—a force responsible for creating what we identify as Eastern Europe.
