DigiOst 4: Christian Pletzing / Marcus Velke (Hrsg.): Lager-Repatriierung-Integration. Beiträge zur Displaced Persons-Forschung. München, Berlin, Leipzig, Washington/D.C 2016. 336 S. ISBN: 978-3-86688-507-3

Camp, repatriation, and integration, upon these various poles life of the Displaced Persons in Germany was centered after World War II. The papers of this volume focus on themes that have been much neglected so far, e.g. DPs from Yugoslavia, Polish repatriates, the architecture of Jewish DP-Synagogues or the integration of "homeless foreigners" in the Federal Republic of Germany. Special attention is paid to the history of Baltic and Polish DPs. The collection brings together papers read at the conference "Dimensions of DP-Research II" in the Akademiezentrum Sankelmark in 2013 especially by young researchers.

DigiOst 3 Katrin Boeckh / Oleh Turij (Hg.), Religiöse Pluralität als Faktor des Politischen in der Ukraine. München, Berlin, Leipzig, Washington/D.C 2015. ISBN (Print) 978-3-86688-504-2; ISBN (eBook) 978-3-86688-505-9

While in Belarus the president has not changed since 1991, and in Russia only three times, in Ukraine, since 1991, the position of the president was held by six men so far. Moreover, the country saw two “revolutions”, the Orange Revolution in 2004/05 and the Euro-Maidan in 2013/14. So, why Ukraine is different? The book gives one possible answer by underlining the lived-in religious plurality in Ukraine that was revived in the 1990s after the long years of Soviet religious repression. 19 Ukrainian, Russian, and German authors study this unique feature of Ukrainian political and societal life from a historical, economical, and sociological perspective. One of their conclusions is that this multitude of confessions strongly enhances public discussions and the process of democratization.

DigiOst 2 Johannes Gleixner / Laura Hölzlwimmer / Christian Preusse / Damien Tricoire (eds.), Konkurrierende Ordnungen. Verschränkungen von Religion, Staat und Nation in Ostmitteleuropa vom 16. bis zum 20. Jahrhundert [Competing Systems. Interconnections Between Religion, State and Nation in East Central Europe from the 16th to 20th Century]. Munich 2015. ISBN (print) 978-3-86688-502-8, ISBN (eBook) 978-3-86688-503-5, URN: urn:nbn:de:bvb:12-ostdok-x-104-6 (November 2015)

From the Reformation Age into the 20th century religious and political orders in East Central Europe were intermingled and in conflict with one another. Confessional groups competed  with one another and strove for dominance thus jeopardizing existing political orders. The regional elites had to cope with the problem. Could a solution be reached by official religious conversations and church unions? Which political channels and legal instruments would guarantee social and political cohesion notwithstanding the religious conflicts? How to create identities that would reconcile feelings of national identity with the religion that was determined to be dominating? Focusing on interconnections, rivaly and confrontation between religion, state and nation in pre-modern and modern times "Competing Systems" offers comparative and epoch-spanning insights.

DigiOst 1 Konrad Clewing (ed.), Roher Diamant Dalmatien. Die habsburgische Verwaltung, ihre Probleme und das Land, wie beschrieben von seinem Gouverneur Lilienberg für Kaiser Franz I. (1834) [Rough Diamond Dalmatia. The Habsburg Administration, its Problems and the Country, as Described by its Governor Lilienberg to Emperor Francis I (1834)]. Munich, Berlin, Leipzig, Washington/D.C. 2015. 364 pages, ISBN (print) 978-3-86688-500-4, ISBN (eBook) 978-3-866688-501-1, URN: urn:nbn:de:bvb:12-ostdok-x-103-0 (May 2015)

In 1835, the Dalmatian Governor Wenzel Count Vetter von Lilienberg attached great hopes to his detailed travel report on the province under his administration: the fact that it was read by its addressee, Emperor Francis I of Austria, was expected to lead to considerable improvements both within the country and the Habsburg administration at large. Although Dalmatia continued to remain a scarcely regarded peripheral region of little influence within the nation state, this edition offers deep insight not only into local circumstances, but also into the principles, practice and shortcomings of the Habsburg administration in the Age of Metternich. Thanks to the vividness of the description of the land, the book can even serve travelers of today for comparison with the current state of Dalmatia.
