This innovative book explores the complexities and levels of resistance amongst the populations of Southeastern Europe during the Second World War. It provides a comparative and transnational approach to the histories of different resistance movements in the region, examining the factors that contributed to their emergence and development, their military and political strategies, and the varieties of armed and unarmed resistance in the region. The authors discuss ethical choices, survival strategies, and connections across resistance movements and groups throughout Southeastern Europe. The aim is to show that to properly understand anti-Axis resistance in the region during the Second World War historians must think beyond conventional and traditional national histories that have tended to dominate studies of resistance in the region. And they must also think of anti-Axis resitance as encompassing more than just military forms. The authors are mainly scholars based in the regions in question, many of whom are presenting their original research for the first time to an English language readership. The book includes contributions dealing with Albania, Bulgaria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Montenegro, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia.
Stream – Archive – Ambience
The ubiquity of digital images is an effect of their distributive versatility. They can be stored almost indefinitely, transmitted instantaneously, reproduced without transformations, visualized in many layers, dated and processed. Their mobilization does not take place randomly, but follows a complex media logistics of format standards, infrastructures and transport calculations. Digital images will be and are distributed: not as sessile objects, bindingly fixed entities, but as stream-like modulated processes. The study conceptualizes actors and agendas of image data traffic, examines retro-digitized archive image corpora in terms of media history and distribution histories, and deals with 'calmed' image sensor operations in intelligent environments.
The battle over the possessions of Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis in interwar Yugoslavia
Author:
When Yugoslavia was created in 1918, noble landowners still possessed vast parts of its territory especially in the northwestern half of the country which had formerly belonged to the Habsburg Monarchy. With approximately 38,000 hectares, Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis was the largest private owner of forests in the new kingdom. Yugoslav politicians demanded an expropriation, justifying their actions on the grounds of social and historical justice. At the same time, political and business networks attempted to appropriate the property themselves. The parties involved - Thurn and Taxis, Yugoslav officials, national and international companies - fought for their interests using various means, from lawsuits to international arbitrage and political lobbyism. This book concentrates on the latter, arriving at a “grammar of bribery” in the lumber business of interwar Yugoslavia.

In der späten Kaiserzeit dominierte eine Zwischenform von Panegyrik und Geschichtsschreibung, deren Zeugnisse mit diesem Band für das vierte und frühe fünfte Jahrhundert vorgestellt werden. Dabei geht es vor allem um die Reste von Darstellungen der Regierung Konstantins und Julians (Praxagoras, Bemarchios, Eustochios, Iulianus Imperator, Biblidion, Kyllenios, Oreibasios, Kallistion, Magnos von Karrhai, Eutychianos, Philagrios, Seleukos von Emesa). Mitberücksichtigt werden auch einige Sonderfälle, insbesondere der erste Teil des Anonymus Valesianus, der eng mit der panegyrischen Zeitgeschichtsschreibung der Epoche Konstantins verbunden ist, sowie einige Epen, die in ihrer detaillierten historiographischen Struktur mit der panegyrischen Zeitgeschichte eng verwandt sind.
