    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 57.99

    Zwischen dem Wiener Kongress von 1814/15 und dem Deutsch-Französischen Krieg von 1870/71 waren deutsche Diplomaten in Paris unentbehrlich – wenngleich ihre Existenz hinterfragbar war.

  • DDR und PLOby Lutz Maeke

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 91.99

    Die SED suggerierte über Jahrzehnte hinweg, sie sei ein enges Bündnis mit der Palästinensischen Befreiungsorganisation unter Führung Jassir Arafats eingegangen, das auf gemeinsamen Werten und geteilten politischen Überzeugungen beruhte.
