Caesar by Christian Meier( Book )

88 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 2,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For centuries, Julius Caesar has endured in our collective imagination as a favorite among historians and scholars, playwrights and poets. In legend he lives as the great conqueror of Rome's immense empire, a remarkable diplomat and writer, an unrivaled heartbreaker, and a man of relentless determination who met a seemingly tragic end
Athens : a portrait of the city in its Golden Age by Christian Meier( Book )

55 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in German and English and held by 1,344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The definitive account of Athens in the age of Pericles, Christian Meier's gripping study begins with the Greek triumph over Persia at the Battle of Salamis, one of the most significant victories in history. Meier shows how that victory decisively established Athens' military dominance in the Mediterranean and made possible its rise to preeminence in almost every field of human endeavor - commerce, science, philosophy, art, architecture, and literature. Within seventy-five years, Athens had become the most original and innovative civilization the ancient world ever produced. Meier traces the birth of democracy and the flourishing of Greek culture in the fifth century B.C., as well as Athens' slow decline and defeat in the Peloponnesian War

The book takes us on a tour through the rich spectrum of Greek life and culture, from their epic and lyric poetry, political thought and philosophy, to their social life, military traditions, sport, and religious festivals, and finally to the early stages of Greek democracy. Running as a connecting thread throughout is a people's attempt to create a society based upon the concept of freedom rather than naked power

Der Historiker und der Zeitgenosse eine Zwischenbilanz by Christian Meier( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wie hängt die Arbeit des Historikers mit seiner eigenen Biographie und seiner eigenen Lebenszeit zusammen? Was kann Geschichtsschreibung für die Gegenwart leisten? Über diese Fragen hat Christian Meier, der renommierteste Althistoriker Deutschlands, immer wieder nachgedacht. Anlässlich seines 85. Geburtstags zieht er nun Bilanz und reflektiert über die Probleme, die aus dem Verhältnis zwischen der Welt der Geschichte und der Provinz des Historikers erwachsen. Die Fragen, die Historiker an die Geschichte stellen, werden immer auch durch ihre Zeitgenossenschaft beeinflusst. Sie bestimmt ihre Vorstellungen ebenso wie ihre Sorgen und Ängste. Diese Erkenntnis bildet den Bogen von Meiers Antrittsvorlesung, die er 1968 unter dem Titel "Die Wissenschaft des Historikers und die Verantwortung des Zeitgenossen" gehalten hat, zu seiner vielbeachteten Abschiedsvorlesung vom Juli 2012. Der vorliegende Band versammelt diese beiden wichtigen Texte sowie ein Gespräch mit Georg Frühschütz, einem seiner letzten Studenten, in dem Christian Meier über Schwierigkeiten und Freuden des Historikerberufs nachdenkt. Er formuliert seine Sicht auf die Geschichtsschreibung und bewertet die Rolle des Historikers in unserer sich rasant wandelnden Gegenwart - einer Zeit, die es scheinbar längst aufgegeben hat, diesen Wandel geschichtsphilosophisch zu verstehen
