This volume offers original research focusing on the history of prostitution in Europe, and specifically, Central and East-Central Europe. While most existing literature on the topic comes in the form of monographs focusing on a specific country, this edited collection has a broader geographical scope. The papers approach the subject of prostitution from a broad range of perspectives and therefore offer an overview of the multiple sources and methodological approaches in the field of the history of prostitution. The edited collection contains three articles on prostitution in socialist countries in Eastern Europe. These articles are among the first to explore prostitution under socialism.

Christian-Muslim Relations, a Bibliographical History 21 (CMR 21), covering Southern 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 leading scholars, CMR 21, along with the other volumes in this series, is intended as a fundamental tool for research in Christian-Muslim relations.

Erstmals widmet sich eine große Edition den Praktiken der Monarchie im 19. Jahrhundert. In internationaler Perspektive stellt das Quellenwerk in einer neuen Folge der traditionsreichen Acta Borussica bislang ungedruckte Aktenstücke für die Forschung zusammen. Die dritte Reihe veranschaulicht am preußischen Beispiel, welche Anpassungen die europäische Monarchie an eine Gesellschaft im Wandel vollzog. Wirksame Integrationsleistungen wie auch deren Grenzen werden greifbar. Die ersten Bände widmen sich Funktionen, Entscheidungsformen und Entscheidungsinstanzen des Hofes. Später stehen performative Praktiken am preußischen Hof, wie sie im Modus höfischer Konkurrenz auch durch kulturelle Transfers aus den europäischen Nachbarländern geformt wurden, sowie Strategien und Reaktionen der Monarchie auf den gesellschaftlichen Wandel im Blickpunkt.

For the first time, a large multi-volume edition work will reflect practices of the monarchy in the 19th century.
In international perspective, this edition of primary sources presents previously unpublished archival documents for further research. The Prussian example illustrates the strategies and reactions of European monarchies when they had to adapt to a changing society. Effective integration achievements as well as their limits become tangible. The first volumes are focusing on the different functions of court members, on deciders and the forms of decision making at the court. Other volumes will highlight e.g. the performative practices at the Prussian court as they were shaped in competition processes and by cultural transfer from neighboring European countries.
Die „Interdisziplinären Beiträge zur Geschichte und Migration der Russlanddeutschen“ befassen sich mit den zahlreichen Facetten russlanddeutscher und postsowjetischer Geschichte. Erinnerungskultur und Kulturgeschichte werden ebenso gewürdigt wie Auswanderung, Migration und der Prozess des Ankommens in Deutschland. Ziel der Reihe ist es, eine Brücke zwischen Geschichte und Gegenwart zu bauen und den häufig als ‚unsichtbar‘ beschriebenen Menschen aus dem postsowjetischen Raum mehr Sichtbarkeit in Deutschland zu verschaffen.

The "Interdisciplinary Contributions to the History and Migration of Russian Germans" deal with the numerous facets of Russian German and post-Soviet history. Memory culture and cultural history are appreciated as well as emigration, migration and the process of arriving in Germany. The aim of the series is to build a bridge between history and the present and to give the people from the post-Soviet region, who are often described as 'invisible', more visibility in Germany.
