Bankier, Fälscher, Historiker: Der Weg des Isaac Lewin durch by Hans H. Lembke

By Hans H. Lembke

Isaac Lewin (1887–1945), Wirtschaftswissenschaftler in St. Petersburg, schreibt kritisch über Lenins ökonomisches Denken und muss ins Exil. Im Russischen Berlin ist er bald ein erfolgreicher Bankier, wird aber 1929, am Beginn der Bankenkrise, als Wechselfälscher entlarvt. Er flüchtet nach Brasilien, ändert dort Namen und modify, und beginnt seine zweite Hochschulkarriere in Harvard. Bis die Berliner Justiz ihn entdeckt – im Januar 1933.
Der Leser folgt Isaac Lewin – später J. F. Normano – in seinem Lebenslauf, er liest, was once der Mensch tut und used to be mit ihm geschieht. Dies ist spannend und unterhaltsam; streckenweise ist die Erzählung ein Krimi, in anderen Abschnitten eine Fluchtstory. Aber das Buch bietet mehr: es führt den Leser durch die Jahrhunderthälfte, vom revolutionären Russland zur Roosevelt-Ära, von der deutschen Inflation zur Bankenkrise, von der professionellen Falschmünzerei in Grauzonen der Wirtschaft zum Verfälschen politischer Dokumente in Geheimdienstmilieus. So erscheinen die biographischen Bilder vor ihrem historischen Hintergrund – und fügen sich in die Zeitgeschichte ein.
Das Buch ist für all diejenigen geschrieben, die gerne auf Wanderung durch die Geschichte gehen, mit Sprüngen zwischen den Kontinenten und zu den Brennpunkten des Weltgeschehens. Wer zudem Wirtschaftshistorie magazine, ob als Geschichte von Ländern, Unternehmen oder auch Lehrmeinungen, der wird an der Lektüre ein besonderes Interesse finden.

Imperial Boundaries: Cossack Communities and Empire-Building by Brian J. Boeck

By Brian J. Boeck

Imperial obstacles is a learn of imperial growth and native transformation on Russia's Don Steppe frontier in the course of the age of Peter the good.

He indicates how by way of selling border patrol, migration keep watch over, bureaucratic legislation of cross-border contacts and deportation of dissidents, Peter I destroyed the area of the outdated steppe and created a brand new imperial Cossack order instead. In studying this variation, Imperial obstacles addresses key old problems with imperial enlargement, the delegitimization of non-state violence, the development of borders, and the encroaching obstacles of kingdom authority within the lives of neighborhood groups.
