Deutschland – Russland. Stationen gemeinsamer Geschichte – Orte der Erinnerung [Germany and Russia: Sites of Shared History – Places of Commemoration]. Band 1

Vol. 1: Das 18. Jahrhundert. Herausgegeben von Horst Möller, Claus Scharf, Wassili Dudarew und Maja Lawrinowitsch. Oldenbourg: De Gruyter Oldenbourg, 2018.
Academic editor: C. Scharf, H. Möller, M. Lavrinovich.
Editor-in-chief: M. Lavrinovich.

The western opening of Russia under Peter I and Catherine II, the formation of modern state in the German territorial states and their further development in the era of enlightened absolutism, Russia’s rise to great power and the emergence of the European “pentarchy”, diverse dynastic connections and cultural influences, the revolutionization of Europe by Napoleon and the defense of Napoleonic imperialism – it is a multifarious history in which German-Russian relations and contexts are integrated in the “long 18th century”. This volume illustrates these connections in 35 joint contributions by German and Russian historians. Short factual representations, supplemented by documents and images, shed light on the development of German-Russian interactions. The volume continues the three-part work “Germany-Russia: Stations of Common History, Places of Commemoration”, of which the volume on the 20th century was published earlier, and the next one – on the 19th century – will follow soon.
