In this first volume of Capital, Race and Space, Richard Saull offers an international historical sociology of the European far-right from its origins in the 1848 revolutions to fascism. Providing a distinct and original explanation of the evolution and mutations of the far-right Saull emphasizes its international causal dimensions through the prism of uneven and combined development.

Focusing on the twin (political and economic) transformations that dominated the second half of the nineteenth century the book discusses the connections between class, race, and geography in the evolution of far-right movements and how the crises in the development of a liberal world order were central to the advance of the far-right ultimately helping to produce fascism.

Die Edition präsentiert erstmals wesentliche Dokumente zur sowjetischen Politik vor dem Zweiten Weltkrieg in deutscher Übersetzung.
Hitler wollte den Krieg. Die anderen Mächte in Europa – Großbritannien, Frankreich und die UdSSR – versuchten sich an verschiedenen Strategien, um einen deutschen Angriff auf das eigene Land und andere zu verhindern oder zumindest zu verzögern. Eine entsprechende Zusammenarbeit zwischen Paris, London und Moskau erwies sich als äußerst schwierig. Die Rolle der sowjetischen Politik, aber auch die der anderen beteiligten Staaten in diesen Konstellationen ist umstritten. Erstmals werden hier zentrale Dokumente zur sowjetischen Politik in dem entscheidenden Zeitraum vom „Anschluss“ Österreichs im März 1938 bis zum Hitler-Stalin-Pakt im August 1939 in deutscher Übersetzung veröffentlicht.
The Greek Revolution of 1821 and the Formation of Modern Greece
In theorising on the causes, preconditions, dynamics and internal conflicts of the Greek Revolution of 1821, the analysis of Milios tackles the issue of bourgeois revolutions in general. Additionally, his investigation of the historical emergence and the limits of the Greek nation, calls forth the broader theoretical and historical question of the economic, political, and ideological presuppositions of nation-building. The book illustrates how nationalism brings the masses to the political forefront, which the capitalist state then incorporates into its apparatuses as ‘sovereign people’. Nationalism being enmeshed within the political element, consists the basis upon which irredentism develops, recruiting populations into the expansionist-imperialist strategies of the ruling classes.
This book provides the first comprehensive historical account of the evolution of scientific traditions in astronomy, astrophysics, and the space sciences within the Max Planck Society. Structured with in-depth archival research, interviews with protagonists, unpublished photographs, and an extensive bibliography, it follows a unique history: from the post-war relaunch of physical sciences in West Germany, to the spectacular developments and successes of cosmic sciences in the second half of the 20th century, up to the emergence of multi-messenger astronomy. It reveals how the Society acquired national and international acclaim in becoming one of the world’s most productive research organizations in these fields.

Focusing on new nation states and mandates in post-Ottoman territories, Borders, Boundaries and Belonging in Post-Ottoman Space in the Interwar Period examines how people negotiated, imagined or ignored new state borders and how they conceived of or constructed belonging. Through investigations of border crossing, population transfer, exile and emigration, this book explores the intricacies of survival within and beyond newly imposed state borders, the exploitation of opportunities and the human cost of political partition.
