The German Quest for International Security 1839–1853
The book investigates the quest for international security in mid-19th century Germany from a new and inspiring perspective. Under the influence of international events Germany's citizens believed that they lived at a dangerous time when relations between countries and nations were increasingly defined by the law of the strongest instead of written law. Regardless of their origin, political views, gender and social status they participated in debates about the future of Germany, Europe and the world and tried to determine how to better ensure external security, develop justice and achieve a more stable peace. This fundamental but hitherto historiographically neglected process became manifest in numerous Phenomena analysed independently in the past such as the rise of German nationalism, the call for naval armament and colonial expansion, the birth of Realpolitik and the concept of Mitteleuropa, the deterioration in relations and wars with other nations and the participation in the organised peace movement.

Die Herausgeber präsentieren eine einmalige Sammlung bis dato unveröffentlichter Briefe von David Zeisberger und seiner Glaubensgenossen und bieten so neue, unerwartete Zugänge zum Nordamerika des 18. und frühen 19. Jahrhunderts, in dem Herrnhuter Missionare, Siedler und indigene Völker aufeinandertrafen, kooperierten, einander bekämpften oder sich gegenseitig instrumentalisierten. Die Quellensammlung zeigt das koloniale Nordamerika bzw. die frühe Republik der USA vor allem aus der Sicht des europäischen Missionars Zeisbergers, der eigene Interessen und Überzeugungen mit denen seiner Umgebung und der Kirchenleitung in Herrnhut in Einklang bringen musste.

The editors of this volume present a unique collection of previously largely unedited letters from David Zeisberger and his colleagues, opening a window into the unknown world of European missionaries, colonial settlers, and native Americans in the most crucial time of early American history. It pays tribute to Moravians working the “American vineyards” and navigating diverse political interests in Pennsylvania, the Northwest Territory, and the borderzone of the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River, as seen from the perspective of an insider.

Christian-Muslim Relations, a Bibliographical History 21 (CMR 21), covering South-western Europe in the period 1800-1914, is a further volume in a general history of relations between the two faiths from the 7th century to the early 20th century. It comprises a series of introductory essays and the main body of detailed entries. These treat all the works, surviving or lost, that have been recorded. They provide biographical details of the authors, descriptions and assessments of the works themselves, and complete accounts of manuscripts, editions, translations and studies. The result of collaboration between numerous new and established scholars, CMR 21, along with the other volumes in this series, is intended as a fundamental tool for research in Christian-Muslim relations.
