The Alps. Space, Culture and History

The period spans from the first settlement in the Alpine region to the present day. It overviews historical developments, culture, society, economy, politics, life, and work.

The first two chapters deal with the origin of the Alps, their historical place and research. The following chapters deal with different thematic emphases on the prehistory to the Middle Ages, the late Middle Ages, and the early modern and modern periods.

The German text is illustrated with many (historical) photographs, maps, a chronological table and a selection of other sources.
