The Institute for Balkan Studies (IBS) of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Art is a leading scholarly institution for multidisciplinary humanities studies of the Balkans and a host of European and international research projects. The origin of the Institute goes back to the Institut des Études balkaniques founded in Belgrade in 1934 as the only of its kind in the Balkans. Its work was banned by the occupation authorities in 1941. The institute was restarted only in 1969 under its present-day name and under the auspices of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts. It assembled a team of scholars to cover the Balkans from prehistory to the modern age and in a range of different fields of study such as archaeology, ethnography, anthropology, history, culture, art, literature, law. This multidisciplinary approach has remained its long-term orientation as the numerous publications of the IBS show. The series Publications of the Institute for Balkan Studies of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Art has been founded to present in English to an international readership: outstanding monographs, edited volumes and important key texts on the history and culture of the Balkans
This first English publication of Vladimir Ćorović’s study is a culmination of efforts that had started long before this book saw the light of day. The origin of this work goes back to the late 1920s when Yugoslav officials and intellectuals decided to provide a competent, scholarly work of international reputation on the question of the origins of the World War I. The publication of the book planned for 1936 could not be realized as the Yugoslav government complied with a request from the Third Reich to cancel it. A work that was likely to delve into the responsibility of not just Austria-Hungary, but also of the German Empire for the outbreak of the Great War was not welcome to Nazi Germany. Even today Ćorović’s book is worth reading to check the state of discussion in the aftermath of more recent publications on the outbreak of World War I.
What was life like in the territories annexed by Russia in the 19th century? What were the views and attitudes of the Poles living in lands belonging to the Russian Empire? How did people arrange their lives when they did not take up revolutionary action and foreswore an open struggle with the Tsarist regime? Could one be a Polish patriot without fighting gun in hand for independence? The Russians believed that Poles were genetically preordained to be anti-Russian. Even in the west of Europe this charge of morbid Russophobia was taken to be the rule. It seems that this was one of the greatest falsehoods that Russian imperial propaganda managed to implement in the West. Leszek Zasztowt unfolds in this fascinating biography a much more complex reality through the life story of the medical scientist, academic and political activist Józef Mianowski (1804-1879), a man who served Russia and loved Poland.
Politics and Culture, Textual Production
The study of the Rus and its religious shaping has been an on-going discussion from the time of the emergence of this field of study in the 19th century. These volumes bring to light, and to a wider readership, cutting edge research on the religious culture and politics of the Rus and at its periphery, as well as interdisciplinary approaches to the early production of Slavonic texts during and immediately after Christianisation. One of the two volumes is dedicated to the textual production and sources of the period. By highlighting work by scholars from and working in Eastern Europe, this publication is an invitation to a global academic dialogue by making new research on Rus culture and letters available in English.
The scope of the proposed series encompasses all Slavonic-speaking societies, polities and cultures. The series will cover all regions where Slavonic speakers and the Slavonic languages are (or were) active. This includes the Balkans, the Byzantine world (such as Greece and Turkey), the Caucasus and Central Asia. The series will feature reception studies and historiography as well as the role of diasporas in imagining and birthing new ‘Worlds of the Slavs’. Chronologically, the series will extend to the present day. Although explicitly focussed on historical studies, literature, art and visual culture also fall within the series‘ scope. One of the series’ primary aims is to provide a platform for scholars, including those from Eastern Europe and Eurasia, to publish in an English-language series and make their research accessible to a wider readership. The series will publish monographs as well as dictionaries, critical editions, textological studies and historical atlases.

This volume is a unique publication as it examines the Marxist attitudes in East Central European historiography and archaeology for the first time, with an emphasis on the co-existence of Marxist and other methodologies between the 1950s and 1970s in the local historiographies in question. Its approach is to distinguish between pseudo-Marxism as an ideological tool on the one hand, and Marxism in the form of historical materialism as a way to interpret the medieval world on the other.

Oberschlesien ist seit langem einer der Hotspots der Migrationsgeschichte: Deutlich mehr als die Hälfte der heutigen Bevölkerung lebt dort erst in der zweiten oder dritten Generation. Andererseits haben viele aus der Region stammende Familien in West- und Mitteleuropa sowie in Nord- und Südamerika ihre Heimat gefunden. Da Oberschlesien außergewöhnlich stark von migrierenden, mobilen Menschen geprägt wurde und wird, lässt sich durch das Prisma des Themas Migration auch die Geschichte der Region selbst in neuen, vielfältigen Facetten darstellen. In diesem Buch richtet sich dabei die Aufmerksamkeit in erster Linie auf die handelnden Menschen, die trotz oftmals fehlender Bildungsmöglichkeiten, Armut und beschränktem politischen Einfluss ihren Weg suchten. Die Migrationsbewegungen, die von Oberschlesien ausgingen und nach Oberschlesien zurückführten, ließen transnationale Räume entstehen und prägten einen dynamischem Wandel unterworfenen deutsch-polnischen Grenzraum.
