Beschreibungen

<p>The articles of this comprehensive edited volume offer a multidisciplinary, global&nbsp;and comparative approach to the history of empires. They analyze their ends over a&nbsp;long spectrum of humankind’s history, ranging from Ancient History through Modern&nbsp;Times. As the main guiding question, every author of this volume scrutinizes&nbsp;the reasons for the decline, the erosion, and the implosion of individual empires.</p><p>All contributions locate and highlight different factors that triggered or at least supported&nbsp;the ending or the implosion of empires. This overall question makes all the&nbsp;contributions to this volume comparable and allows to detect similarities, differences&nbsp;as well as inconsistencies of historical processes.</p>
