Today we can walk into any well-stocked bookstore or library and find an array of historical atlases. The first thorough review of the source material, Historical Atlases traces how these collections of "maps for history"—maps whose sole purpose was to illustrate some historical moment or scene—came into being. Beginning in the sixteenth century, and continuing down to the late nineteenth, Walter Goffart discusses milestones in the origins of historical atlases as well as individual maps illustrating historical events in alternating, paired chapters. He focuses on maps of the medieval period because the development of maps for history hinged particularly on portrayals of this segment of the postclassical, "modern" past. Goffart concludes the book with a detailed catalogue of more than 700 historical maps and atlases produced from 1570 to 1870. Historical Atlases will immediately take its place as the single most important reference on its subject. Historians of cartography, medievalists, and anyone seriously interested in the role of maps in portraying history will find it invaluable.

Karten sind erstklassige historische Quellen, doch werden sie in der Geschichtswissenschaft nur selten genutzt. Gerade die Kartierung Osteuropas lÃ?¤sst Historiker Einblick nehmen in die Geschichte der Nationalisierung oder Verwissenschaftlichung, in Debatten Ã?Â1⁄4ber Ethnisierung oder in Raum- und Grenzfragen. Die Karten erzÃ?¤hlen von Raumphantasien, von Homogenisierungsversuchen in VielvÃ?¶lkerreichen, sie behandeln Grenzen und GrenzÃ?Â1⁄4berschreitungen einzelner Menschen im erdachten und gezeichneten sowie im realen osteuropÃ?¤ischen GroÃ?Â?raum.

Geschichtsatlanten haben das Geschichtsbild von Generationen von Schülern geprägt. Sylvia Schraut vergleicht Atlanten aus Deutschland, Österreich, Großbritannien und den USA und untersucht deren Blick auf die Weltgeschichte. Sie bezieht dabei die Intentionen von Herausgebern und Verlagen, die jeweiligen Schulsysteme und den Stand der Geschichtswissenschaft ebenso ein wie den Einfluss aktueller politischer Geschehnisse und des Zeitgeists. Dabei zeigt sie, dass die nationalistischen Atlantenkonzepte des späten 19. Jahrhunderts die Geschichtsatlanten bis in die 1960er-Jahre prägten.

Few historians have argued so forcefully or persuasively as Bernard S. Bachrach for the study of warfare as not only worthy of scholarly attention, but demanding of it. In his many publications Bachrach has established unequivocally the relevance of military institutions and activity for an understanding of medieval European societies, polities, and mentalities. In so doing, as much as any scholar of his generation, he has helped to define the status quaestionis for the field of medieval military history. The Medieval Way of War: Studies in Medieval Military History in Honor of Bernard S. Bachrach pays tribute to its honoree by gathering in a single volume seventeen original studies from an international roster of leading experts in the military history of medieval Europe. Ranging chronologically from Late Antiquity through the Later Middle Ages (ca. AD 300-1500), and with a broad geographical scope stretching from the British Isles to the Middle East, these diverse studies address an array of critical themes and debates relevant to the conduct of war in medieval Europe. These themes include the formation and implementation of military grand strategies; the fiscal, material, and administrative resources that underpinned the conduct of war in medieval Europe; and religious, legal, and artistic responses to military violence. Collectively, these seventeen studies embrace the interdisciplinarity and topical diversity intrinsic to Bachrach’s research. Additionally, they strongly echo his conviction that the study of armed conflict is indispensable for an accurate and comprehensive understanding of medieval European history.
