All interested in the history of Anglo-German relations, the history of science and scholarship, and cultural identity. Anyone interested in network theory and its application to the study of history.
This interesting collection of ten essays, based on papers given at a Berlin conference in 2011, takes up anew the subject of relations between Germany and Great Britain in the spheres of science, scholarship, and education over the “long” nineteenth century [...] It does provide [...] a multifaceted, problem and source-minded, and readable survey and encourages further exploration into a truly entangled topic.
