Man, Nature and Environment between the Northern Adriatic and the Eastern Alps in Premodern Times

Nature and Environment between the Northern Adriatic and the Eastern Alps

Vol. 48

The environment has been ever-changing throughout history. The work is a combination of chapters analytically dealing with causes and consequences of environmental conditions and changes, methodological-conceptual chapters and discussions assessing individual types of sources in terms of environmental history. While parts of the monograph are limited to results of analyses of written sources, other parts are the product of interdisciplinary collaboration. The focal points include history of water, history of forest and tree species, history of natural disasters, the man-environment relationship, supply of urban settlements and the role of natural resources in the economy. Analytical chapters focus on the Alpine, Adriatic, Dinaric and Pannonian area in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Times.

Walter Lukan, Iz "črnožolte kletke narodov" v "zlato svobodo"? Habsburška monarhija in Slovenci v prvi svetovni vojni [From the »Black and Yellow Cage of Nations« to the »Golden Freedom«? The Habsburg Monarchy and Slovenes in World War I]

The Habsburg Monarchy and Slovenes in World War I

Vol. 47

What was the extent of significance of the national movement of a small nation, living almost in its entirety in the Austrian half of the state where it constituted barely 4.5 percent of the entire population, in the eyes of the Viennese government, the joint Council of Ministers of the Habsburg Monarchy and the emperor, the elderly Franz Joseph and the dynamic, young, yet inexperienced Charles? What was the role of this movement as a part of the Yugoslav movement in the course of war, as the crisis of the multinational state aggravated increasingly and eventually led mostly due to the national question to its decline? The presented work aims to answer all these and similar questions. The author intends to achieve a more differentiated reflection of the national issues of the Habsburg Monarchy in WWI, since Austrian historiography tends to provide a somewhat narrow viewing field that is characterised by a distinct mark of the centre, i.e. Vienna.

Marjeta Šašel Kos, Rimsko osvajanje zahodnega Balkana. Ilirik v Apijanovi Ilirski zgodovini [Illyrian History]

Illyrian History

Vol. 41

Illyrian History, written by Greek historian Appian of Alexandria in the 2nd century A.D., is the only antique history of Illyricum that has been preserved to the present. The book focuses on warfare and subsequent devastations, a subject which unfortunately still resonates in the Balkans. During the period of the Roman Empire, Illyricum comprised, in addition to Dalmatian and Pannonian regions, mainly the area of West Balkans. In his text, Appian also refers to the area of present-day Slovenia, thus contributing additional knowledge on the subject that is of considerable interest to historians and archaeologists.
