Empire

Imperialism as we knew it may be no more, but Empire is alive and well. It is, as Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri demonstrate in this bold work, the new political order of globalization. Their book shows how this emerging Empire is fundamentally different from the imperialism of European dominance and capitalist expansion in previous eras. Rather, today's Empire draws on elements of U.S. constitutionalism, with its tradition of hybrid identities and expanding frontiers. More than analysis, Empire is also an unabashedly utopian work of political philosophy.

Dieses Manuskript bietet eine Fortsetzung zu Rostowzews bekanntem Werk �Skythien und der Bosporus�. In der vorliegenden Publikation, die in Verbindung mit der Russischen Akademie der Wissenschaften (Moskau) erfolgt, werden die neugefundenen Texte erstmals in deutscher �bersetzung vorgelegt. Begleitende Aufs�tze verschiedener Autoren und bisher noch nicht publizierte Kommentare russischer Fachleute sind hier in deutscher Fassung zu einem Band vereinigt, der dem westlichen Leser neben Rostowzews wertvoller Schrift auch neueste Ergebnisse der antiken Geschichte und Arch�ologie Suedru�lands und der Ukraine vor Augen fuehrt. Zahlreiche Photos beleuchten die Kunst der Griechen und Skythen am Schwarzen Meer und in der Steppe.
