Das aufsehenerregende Standardwerk in opulenter Ausstattung – reich bebildert im Großformat. Die Geschichte eines einzigartigen Kulturraums neu erzählt. Über 3000 Jahre war das Mittelmeer eines der großen Zentren der Zivilisation. Seine gesamte Geschichte wird hier von dem großen Historiker David Abulafia brillant erzählt, von der Errichtung der ersten geheimnisvollen Tempel auf Malta 3500 v. Chr. bis zu den heutigen Zielen des Massentourismus. Farbig lässt er die Geschichte der großen Hafenstädte – Alexandria, Saloniki, Triest – wiederauferstehen, berichtet von deren Einwohnern, dem Warenaustausch und den Handelswegen, die das große Meer durchzogen. Eine unglaubliche Vielfalt an Religionen, Bevölkerungen, Sprachen und Kulturen verbindet er so zu einer der ganz großen Geschichtserzählungen.

Across the Corrupting Sea: Post-Braudelian Approaches to the Ancient Eastern Mediterranean reframes current discussions of the Mediterranean world by rereading the past with new methodological approaches. The work asks readers to consider how future studies might write histories of the Mediterranean, moving from the larger pan-Mediterranean approaches of The Corrupting Sea towards locally-oriented case studies. Spanning from the Archaic period to the early Middle Ages, contributors engage the pioneering studies of the Mediterranean by Fernand Braudel through the use of critical theory, GIS network analysis, and postcolonial cultural inquiries. Scholars from several time periods and disciplines rethink the Mediterranean as a geographic and cultural space shaped by human connectivity and follow the flow of ideas, ships, trade goods and pilgrims along the roads and seascapes that connected the Mediterranean across time and space. The volume thus interrogates key concepts like cabotage, seascapes, deep time, social networks, and connectivity in the light of contemporary archaeological and theoretical advances in order to create new ways of writing more diverse histories of the ancient world that bring together local contexts, literary materials, and archaeological analysis.

Gegenwärtig erlebt der Süden Europas in der öffentlichen Debatte eine neue Konjunktur. Mit Vorliebe wird dabei ein europäischer Nord-Süd-Gegensatz heraufbeschworen, ohne jedoch auf seine lange Geschichte zu blicken. Wirtschaftlich und politisch unterentwickelt, unterschieden sich Italien, Spanien, Portugal und Griechenland nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg von den sogenannten westeuropäischen Gesellschaften. Zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts schien diese Ungleichheit überwunden. Nun droht die Schuldenkrise den Kontinent erneut zu spalten. Die Beiträge hinterfragen gängige Annahmen und Bilder von "Südeuropa " und ergründen, inwiefern der "Süden" einen homogenen Raum mit strukturellen Gemeinsamkeiten darstellt.

During the last two decades of the twentieth century, southern Europe became a key destination for global migration. Countries which had been important source countries for emigration, mainly to northern Europe, quickly became targets for international migrants coming from an extraordinary range of source countries. Today, the management of immigration is complex with countries torn between the need to satisfy the rules of Schengen and "fortress Europe" on the one hand, and the economic benefits of cheap and flexible labor supplies on the other. This book brings together a variety of detailed studies recording the "cultural encounters" of these migrants. Most of the chapters are based on detailed research in locations such as Lisbon, the Algarve, Barcelona, Turin, Bologna, Sicily and Athens, as well as in source countries such as Morocco, Tunisia, Albania and the Philippines. What emerges is a scenario diverse and rapidly evolving, with cultural encounters which are both enriching and depressing, yet always fascinating.

From the Straits of Gibraltar to Sicily, the European northern Mediterranean nations to the shores of North Africa, the western Mediterranean is a unique cultural and sociopolitical entity which has had a singular role in shaping today’s global society. The Western Mediterranean and the World is the fascinating story of the rise of that peculiar world and of its evolution from the end of the Western Roman Empire to the present. Uniquely, rather than present the history of the region as a strict chronological progression, the author takes a thematic approach, telling his story through a series of vignettes, case studies, and original accounts so as to provide a more immediate sense of what life in and around the Mediterranean was like from the end of the Roman Empire in the West to the present immigration crisis now unfolding in Mediterranean waters. Emphasizing the development of religion and language and the enduring synergies and struggles between Christian, Jews, and Muslims on both shores of the western sea, Dr. Ruiz connects the region to the larger world and locates the development of Mediterranean societies within a global context. Describes the move from religious and linguistic unity under Roman rule to the fragmented cultural landscape of today Explores the relationship of language, culture, and geography, focusing on the role of language formation and linguistic identity in the emergence of national communities Traces the movements of peoples across regions and their encounters with new geographical, cultural, and political realities Addresses the emergence of various political identities and how they developed into set patterns of political organization Emphasizes the theme of encounters as seen from Christian, Muslim, and Jewish perspectives While it is sure to become a definitive text for university courses on Mediterranean history, The Western Mediterranean and the World will also have great appeal among scholars of the Mediterranean as well as general readers of history.

Strassen, dicht belebte Platze und imposante Bauwerke: Die mediterranen Hafenstadte glichen sich in Struktur wie Farbe. Seeleute und Kaufleute, Piraten und Konsuln, Menschen aus aller Welt fanden sich auf der Suche nach Einkommen, Abenteuern oder neuen Existenzmoglichkeiten in diesen Metropolen und bestimmten ihr Gesicht. Aus einer entgrenzten raumlichen Perspektive gehen Desanka Schwara, Luise Muller, Patrick Krebs, Ivo Haag und Marcel Gosteli der Frage nach, ob diese Diasporagruppen ein gemeinsamer Habitus vereint. Was diese Zerstreuten bewegte, welche Erfahrungen sie in diesen Stadten machten, wird politische und andere herrschaftliche Grenzen ignorierend im eng verflochtenen und verbundenen Raum zwischen Lissabon und Istanbul in den Blick genommen; so wie die Menschen der Diaspora ihrerseits diese Grenzen ignorierten."
