Spiel mit dem Feuer: Die britische Aussenpolitik vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg Europa vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg: Im Zentrum der internationalen und globalen Beziehungen agiert die Weltmacht Grossbritannien. Auf allen Ebenen der Diplomatie versucht es die alten Bundnisse der europaischen Staaten aufzubrechen. Die Geschichtswissenschaft hat diese Bemuhungen bisher als Reaktionen auf die aggressive Aussenpolitik des Deutschen Kaiserreiches interpretiert. Andreas Rose kann dagegen aufzeigen, wie sehr die englische Aussenpolitik von ganz anderen Interessen getrieben wurde: innerbritischen, kontinentalen und imperialen. Er entwirft den politischen Raum Londons, in dem uber aussen- und sicherheitspolitische Massnahmen intensiv diskutiert und aus dem heraus Entscheidungen getroffen wurden."

Zehn Jahre danach: Der Finanzcrash und seine dramatischen Folgen Als die US-Großbank Lehman Brothers im September 2008 zusammenbrach, war dies der Tiefpunkt der Banken- und Finanzkrise. Und obwohl der totale Kollaps der Weltwirtschaft damals verhindert wurde, ist die Finanzkrise noch lange nicht Geschichte, wie der britische Historiker Adam Tooze zeigt. Er schildert, wie es zu dieser Krise der Finanzmärkte kam und welche dramatischen Folgen sie bis heute hat. Denn nicht nur ist durch die Finanzkrise die Stabilität Europas ins Wanken geraten, sie hat auch das Vertrauen in die Kraft der globalen Wirtschaftsordnung erschüttert – und so zum Aufstieg der Populisten beigetragen.
