Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg are three relatively small countries whose contribution to Europe's economic, spiritual and artistic heritage has been immense. Their histories cannot be written in isolation from one another, or from their neighbours. In the first full historical survey of the Benelux area to be written in English, Paul Arblaster describes the whole sweep of the history of the Low Countries, from Roman frontier provinces through to the establishment of the three constitutional monarchies of the present day. In this revised and updated new edition, Arblaster: ■ incorporates the latest scholarship and recent events, bringing the story right up to today ■ provides fresh coverage of immigration, multiculturalism, and the resurgence of nationalism in the Low Countries ■ offers a brief discussion of the rise of secularism in Western Europe and how this has affected the Benelux region ■ outlines the countries' recent economic successes and failures ■ includes a new list of political parties and governments since 1918 A History of the Low Countries is ideal for those seeking a concise and readable introduction to the history of a region which, for centuries, has been at the crossroads of Western Europe.

This four-part work describes and analyses democracy and despotism in tribes, city-states, and nation states. The theoretical framework used in this work combines Weberian, Aristotelian, evolutionary anthropological, and feminist theories in a comparative-historical context. The dual nature of humans, as both an animal and a consciously aware being, underpins the analysis presented. Part One covers tribes. It uses anthropological literature to describe the “campfire democracy” of the African Bushmen, the Pygmies, and other band societies. Its main focus is on the tribal democracy of the Cheyenne, Iroquois, Huron, and other tribes, and it pays special attention to the role of women in tribal democracies. Part Two describes the city-states of Mesopotamia, Syria, and Canaan-Phoenicia, and includes a section on the theocracy of the Jews. This part focuses on the transition from tribal democracy to city-state democracy in the ancient Middle East – from the Sumerian city-states to the Phoenician. Part Three focuses on the origins of democracy and covers Greece—Mycenaean, Dorian, and the Golden Age. It presents a detailed description of the tribal democracy of Archaic Greece – emphasizing the causal effect of the hoplite-phalanx military formation in egalitarianizing Greek tribal society. Next, it analyses the transition from tribal to city-state democracy—with the new commercial classes engendering the oligarchic and democratic conflicts described by Plato and Aristotle. Part Four describes the Norse tribes as they contacted Rome, the rise of kingships, the renaissance of the city-states, and the parliamentary monarchies of the emerging nation-states. It provides details of the rise of commercial city states in Renaissance Italy, Hanseatic Germany and the Netherlands.

Auf 250 Seiten einmal durch 2000 Jahre deutscher Geschichte: Überzeugend und souverän führt James Hawes von den alten Römern bis in die Gegenwart. Eine große Tour durch die Jahrhunderte, die in einer leidenschaftlichen Hommage an die Bundesrepublik endet. Der Sieg gegen die Römer im Teutoburger Wald, die barbarische Grausamkeit des Dreißigjährigen Kriegs, der Aufstieg des militaristischen Preußens im 18. Jahrhundert — wie Blitzlichter scheinen diese historischen Ereignisse in James Hawes’ fulminantem Parforceritt durch die deutsche Geschichte auf. Die alles beherrschende Frage, die sich wie ein roter Faden durch die Seiten zieht: Gehört das Herzstück Europas zum Westen oder zum Osten? Für Hawes ist klar, dass dieses Land zum Westen zählt. Die Bundesrepublik, so wie wir sie kennen, sieht er in der Tradition des wahren, historischen Deutschlands, dem Staatshörigkeit, puritanischer Eifer und narben gesichtiger Militarismus stets fremd waren. Hawes ist sich sicher: Deutschland ist heute »Europas größte Hoffnung«.

The history of modern Denmark is essentially the story of how a once extensive and diverse empire slowly fragmented under the changing circumstances of the times. In this introductory guide, Knud J. V. Jespersen traces the process of disintegration and reduction which helped to form the modern Danish state, and the historical roots of Denmark's international position. Beginning with the Reformation in the sixteenth century, Jespersen explains how the Denmark of today was shaped by wars, territorial losses, domestic upheavals, new methods of production, and changes in thought. Thoroughly revised and updated in light of the most recent research, this second edition includes new discussions of the Danish Enlightenment, Denmark's role in World War II, the Cartoon Crisis of 2006 and current NATO debates, bringing the diverse and turbulent history of the country right up to the present day.
