A Research Guide to Southeastern Europe: Print and Electronic Sources is designed to aid those interested in exploring this dynamic region in locating the best resources available, whether looking for archival collections in Albania or dissertations and theses in Greece. It provides readers up-to-date information on a variety of research collections from over twenty countries and in over a dozen languages. The focus of the volume is on the modern era, primarily the 18th century to the present, the subject areas of the humanities and social sciences, though researchers from outside of the subject and temporal scope of the work will find information of use, and the countries of Albania, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova (including the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic), Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, and Turkey. This volume is distinctive in that it is the only bibliographic resource that offers such extensive subject, linguistic, and regional treatment. This work is composed of five chapters and three appendices. The chapters are focused on research materials, giving readers access points for critical materials on Southeastern Europe both in print and digital formats from libraries, archives, journals, and databases. The appendices focus on library classification, educational programming geared to language instruction, and transliteration of non-Latin scripts.

Freiheit oder imperiale Größe? Essays zu einem russischen Dilemma

Author: Leonid Luks

Publisher: ibidem-Verlag / ibidem Press

ISBN: 3838260112

Category: Political Science

Page: 274

Zu den im Westen beliebten Stereotypen gehört die These von der Autoritätsgläubigkeit und „Schicksalsergebenheit“ der Russen. Dieses Klischee hat eine lange Tradition. An seiner Verbreitung beteiligten sich Vertreter verschiedener, manchmal entgegengesetzter politischer Richtungen.Die Tatsache, daß Rußland seit Beginn der Neuzeit zahlreiche Bauernaufstände und Revolten unterschiedlichster Art und im 20. Jahrhundert vier Revolutionen – so viele wie kein anderes größeres Land Europas! – erlebte, erschütterte das klischeehafte Rußlandbild kaum. Warum wurden und werden die verschiedenartigen Manifestationen des russischen Freiheitsdranges von Außenstehenden so geringgeschätzt? Warum wird Rußland in der westlichen Öffentlichkeit in der Regel nur als imperialer Obrigkeitsstaat wahrgenommen? Dies hat offenbar nicht zuletzt damit zu tun, daß den russischen Verfechtern der Freiheit das Image der ewigen Verlierer anhaftet. Sogar in jenen Perioden, in denen sie im Lande regierten, blieben sie nicht allzulange an der Macht. Bald wurden sie von ihren Kontrahenten – den Verfechtern der imperialen „Machtvertikale“ – abgelöst. Die Analyse dieser politischen Abläufe wie auch des Spannungsverhältnisses zwischen den russischen Verfechtern der Freiheit und ihren imperialen Kontrahenten stellt den Gegenstand dieses Buches dar.

Im Banne des Poeten

Die theologische Dostoevskij-Rezeption und ihr Literaturverständnis

Author: Maike Schult

Publisher: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht

ISBN: 3525563493

Category: Religion

Page: 502

View: 4651

Die vorliegende Studie ist interdisziplinär zwischen den Fächern Slawistik und Theologie angesiedelt. Maike Schult zeichnet die Aufnahme des russischen Schriftstellers F.M. Dostoevskij (1821–1881) in der deutschsprachigen Theologie von ihren Anfängen um 1900 bis in die Gegenwart nach. Dabei macht sie nicht nur die theologische Dostoevskij-Rezeption als Teil der weltanschaulichen Deutungstradition chronologisch nachvollziehbar, sie wertet auch die dazugehörigen Rezeptionsdokumente auf ihr verborgenes Literaturverständnis hin aus. Der rezeptionsgeschichtliche Ansatz wird mit wirkungsästhetischen Fragen kombiniert und der widersprüchliche Erwartungshorizont des theologischen Lesers transparent: Während Dostoevskij in Krisen- und Umbruchzeiten als »Prophet« verehrt und Botschaft und Wegweisung von ihm erwartet wird, bleibt er als Künstler dauerhaft suspekt. Doch eben die existentielle Erwartungshaltung begünstigt die in den Romanen angelegten Strategien der Manipulation und Provokation, die den Leser beeinflussen. Diese befördern die für den Autor charakteristische emotionale Interaktion zwischen Text und Leser. Einen poetologischen Gegenentwurf hat der Hallesche Orthodoxiekundler Konrad Onasch vorgelegt. Er hat die Theologie früh vor Funktionalisierungs- und Vereinnahmungstendenzen gewarnt und die Frage nach einer theologisch angemessenen Hermeneutik im Umgang mit literarischen Werken aufgeworfen. Sein Ansatz von der »Poetisierung des Christentums« in Dostoevskijs Werk wird in dieser Studie besonders gewürdigt. Die Arbeit enthält Bildmaterial sowie einen Anhang mit allen einschlägigen theologischen Rezipienten, die sich mit Dostoevskij befasst haben.

Bits of Table Talk on Pushkin, Mickiewicz Goethe, Turgenev and Sienkiewicz

Author: Waclaw Lednicki

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 9401529086

Page: 263

View: 1959

Table Talk was the title Pushkin gave, following the example of William Hazlitt or Samuel Taylor Coleridge, to the collection of historical anecdotes jotted down in the years 1830-1836. Pushkin had in his library the T able Talk of both Hazlitt and Coleridge. The question which book prompted his own title has been much discussed. There can be no doubt that Coleridge occupies a very important position in the list of literary sources which Puskhin utilized. It is curious that in the fall of 1830 at Boldino, hence at the period of his greatest literary activity, when he composed a number of his most splendid masterpieces, Puskhin had Coleridge's works with him; not only had his works, but read them anew. Among the Boldino master pieces was also, as we know, the famous "little tragedy" Mozart and Salieri, of which the ultimate psychological-moral peripeteia revolves about Mozart's remark that "genius and crime are two incompati ble things"--"geny i zlodeystvo dve veschi nesovmestnye ..." When I looked through Coleridge's Table Talk I was struck with the following observation, under the date of the 29th of August, 1827: "genius may co-exist with wildness, idleness, folly, even with crime: but not long, believe me, with selfishness, and the indulgence of an envious disposition. Envy is kdkistos kai dikai6tatos the6s, as I once saw expressed some where in a page of Stobaeus: it dwarfs and withers its worshippers.

Readings in Russian Civilization, Volume 1

"This new and enlarged version of Readings in Russian Civilization is the result of fairly extensive revisions. There are now 72 instead of 64 items; 20 of the selections are new. The first volume has undergone the least change with 3 new items, of which 2 appear in English for the first time. In the second volume there are 6 new items; all of them appear in English for the first time. The third volume has undergone the greatest revision, with 11 new items, of which 6 are newly translated from the Russian. It is the editor's hope that items left out in the new edition will not be sorely missed, and that the new selections will turn out to be useful and illuminating. The aim, throughout, has been to cover areas of knowledge and periods which had been neglected in the first edition, and to include topics which are important in the study of the Russian past and present. "The bibliographical headnotes have been enlarged, with the result that there are now approximately twice as many entries as in the old edition. New citations include not only works which have appeared since 1963, but also older books and articles which have come to the editor's attention."—From the Editor's Preface ". . . a judicious combination of seminal works and more recent commentaries that achieves the editor's purpose of stimulating curiosity and developing a point of view."—C. Bickford O'Brien, The Russian Review "These three volumes cover quite well the main periods of Russian civilization. The choice of the articles and other material is made by a competent and unbiased scholar."—Ivan A. Lopatin, Professor of Asian and Slavic Studies, University of Southern California

An Alaska Anthology

Interpreting the Past

Author: Stephen W. Haycox,Mary Childers Mangusso

Alaska, with its Indian, Eskimo, and Aleut heritage, its century of Russian colonization, its peoples� formidable struggles to wrest a living (or a fortune) from the North�s isolated and harsh environment, and its relatively recent achievement of statehood, has long captured the popular imagination. In An Alaska Anthology, twenty-five contemporary scholars explore the region�s pivotal events, significant themes, and major players, Native, Russian, Canadian, and American. The essays chosen for this anthology represent the very best writing on Alaska, giving great depth to our understanding and appreciation of its history from the days of Russian-American Company domination to the more recent threat of nuclear testing by the Atomic Energy Commission and the influence of oil money on inexperienced politicians. Readers may be familiar with an earlier anthology, Interpreting Alaska�s History, from which the present volume evolved to accommodate an explosion of research in the past decade. While a number of the original pieces were found to be irreplaceable, more than half of the essays are new. The result is a fresh perspective on the subject and an invaluable resource for students, teachers, and scholars.

France and Her Eastern Allies, 1919-1925

French-Czechoslovak-Polish Relations from the Paris Peace Conference to Locarno

Author: Piotr Stefan Wandycz

Publisher: U of Minnesota Press

France and her Eastern Allies, 1919–1925 was first published in 1962. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Relations between France, Czechoslovakia, and Poland occupied an important position in European diplomacy in the years between World War I and World War II. Beginning with the breakdown of the old political, social, and economic order on the Continent during the first World War, these relations went through many changes. This book deals with the crucial period from the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 to the signing of the Locarno Pact in 1925. During this time France attempted to establish an eastern barrier of buffer states with Poland and Czechoslovakia at the core, with the aim of keeping Germany and Bolshevik Russia apart. This, France hoped, would guarantee European peace and security. Although an effective eastern barrier was never realized, the attempt to create one was a worthy and important undertaking. Professor Wandycz considers in detail the various aspects of the complex relationship between France and the two western Slav states — geographic, economic, social, and political. In addition, he provides a clear and interesting picture of some of the personalities involved. Through the use of hitherto unpublished source material, he throws new light on many events of general European diplomatic history as well as on Polish, French, and Czechoslovak foreign policy in particular.

Gathering a Heritage

Ukrainian, Slavonic, and Ethnic Canada and the USA

Author: Thomas M. Prymak

Publisher: University of Toronto Press

ISBN: 1442665505

Category: History

Page: 384

View: 9012

Since the 1970s and 1980s, the study of immigration and ethnicity has grown to become an essential aspect of North American history. In Gathering a Heritage, Thomas M. Prymak uses the essays and articles he has written over the past thirty years as a historian of Ukrainian and Ukrainian Canadian history to reflect on the evolution of ethnic studies in Canada and the United States. The essays included in this book explore the history of Ukrainian and Slavonic immigration to North America and the literature through which these communities and their historians have sought to recapture their past. Each previously published essay is revised and expanded and several more appear here for the first time – including the fascinating story of French Canadian writer Gabrielle Roy’s connections with Ukrainian Canadians and her tumultuous affair with a Ukrainian Canadian nationalist in pre-war London.

Russia in Pacific Waters, 1715-1825

A Survey of the Origins of Russia's Naval Presence in the North and South Pacific

Author: Glynn Barratt

Publisher: UBC Press

ISBN: 0774841222

Category: History

Page: 300

This is the first study in Russian or Western literature of the rise and fall of Russian naval influence in the North Pacific Ocean from the time of Peter the Great to Tsar Nicholas I. The author deals with a neglected area: inherent tension between Russian naval and mercantile interests and the origins of international rivalry in the North Pacific at large. Barratt shows that Russia's motives for early expeditions to the Pacific were to promote science, exploration, and trade. But when imperialist powers vied for territory and resources in the area, military confrontation became a possibility. .
