For generations the traditional focus for those wishing to understand the roots of the modern world has been France on the eve of the Revolution. Porter certainly acknowledges France's importance, but here makes an overwhelming case for consideringBritain the true home of modernity - a country driven by an exuberance, diversity and power of invention comparable only to twentieth-century America. Porter immerses the reader in a society which, recovering from the horrors of the Civil War and decisively reinvigorated by the revolution of 1688, had emerged as something new and extraordinary - a society unlike any other in the world.

Die Beendigung des Sklavenstatus im Altertum

ein Beitrag zur vergleichenden Sozialgeschichte

Slaves accounted for a large proportion of the Greek and Roman population and yet, as this study proclaims, they had no voice. The only accounts of slavery that exist were written by free men. Weiler's detailed study examines the nature of ancient slavery from a range of perspectives, including historical and anthropological, and also makes comparison throughout with the more recent experiences of slaves and ex-slaves in America and the Caribbean. Following a discussion of the terminology and extent of slavery in Greece and Rome, Weiler considers the ways in which slavery could be terminated, including escape and emancipation, using literary, epigraphic and philosophical sources. German text.

Antike Sklaverei und deutsche Aufklärung

Die vorliegende Monographie geht der Frage nach, wie die deutsche Aufklarung die antike Sklaverei gesehen und bewertet hat. Zu diesem Zweck zeichnet der Verfasser auf Basis umfangreicher Recherchen ein Panorama der deutschen Sklavenforschung in der Aufklarungsepoche. Dabei wird einem Werk des Gottinger Juristen J. F. Reitemeier (1755-1839) besondere Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt, mit dem der Schritt zur politischen Aktualisierung der antiken Sklaverei vollzogen wird. Reitemeier definiert mittels der griechischen Antike die Sklaverei als ein uberholtes Gesellschaftsmodell und verlangt vehement die Aufrechterhaltung der inzwischen gewonnenen aallgemeinen Freiheito, wodurch er sich als engagierter Vertreter der burgerlichen Emanzipationsbewegung erweist.

What did being male or female mean in the ancient world? What were the norms and behavioral patterns connected with it? Under which circumstances were boundaries of gender being crossed? These questions define the range of essays collected in this volume, which all deal with analyzing the various definitions of masculinity and femininity encountered in the classical ancient cultures. German text, some contributions in English.
