Digital book launch on Historical Security Studies:

Inken Schmidt-Voges et al. (eds.): Handbuch Frieden im Europa der Frühen Neuzeit / Handbook of Peace in Early Modern Europe, Berlin/Boston: DeGruyter 2020.

The development of European peace processes is as characteristic of early modernity as the ubiquity of military conflict: over 2,000 international or domestic peace treaties were concluded in this era. This handbook presents the most recent findings of international research on political and societal peace orders, peace concepts and practices, along with the cultures of peace in the early modern period.
