This first of three volumes of Mueller's selected correspondence covers his early life in Germany prior to his migration to Australia, his years in South Australia, and his first years as Government Botanist of Victoria. This was the period during which Mueller undertook his major exploring expeditions in the southeast of the continent and in northern Australia, and also took on the development of Melbourne's famed Botanic Garden. The volume includes family and other letters from Mueller's youth, and later correspondence, both official and private, documenting his formation as a scientist, his building of links with scientists in other parts of the world, his activities as an explorer, and his role in the establishment of new scientific and cultural institutions in Australia during the hectic gold-rush years. There is a substantial historical introduction and an extensive editorial apparatus that will serve all three volumes.

Of German origin, Ferdinand von Mueller migrated to Australia in 1847. Government Botanist of Victoria for 43 years until his death in 1896, he was Australia’s greatest scientist of the 19th century – a major contributor to international science, an intrepid explorer of parts of Australia previously unknown to Europeans, and a dominant figure in the scientific and intellectual life of his adopted country.
Throughout his working life, Mueller kept up an enormous correspondence. Large numbers of letters by or to him have been located throughout the world, and edited for publication. These constitute a major new research tool for both Australian historians and historians of science. They are also of fundamental importance to Australian taxonomic botany, for Mueller introduced vast numbers of Australian plants to western science.
This is the third and final volume of Mueller’s selected correspondence. It covers the last two decades of his life – his most productive period from a scientific point of view – including his work as Government Botanist of Victoria; his multifarious contributions to taxonomy, biogeography and economic botany; his engagement with the exploration of inland Australia, New Guinea and Antarctica; his manifold links with international science; and his evolving personal circumstances as one of the leading citizens of his adopted country. This volume contains a substantial historical introduction, and a further extension of the editorial apparatus developed in previous volumes.

This second of three volumes of Mueller’s selected correspondence covers the central period of his life, years during which his letter-writing expanded and diversified to an astonishing extent. Throughout the period, Mueller continued as Government Botanist of Victoria, for much of the time he was also director of the Melbourne Botanic Garden. The volume includes both official and private correspondence documenting his work in these two capacities, the political difficulties associated with the latter position that eventually led to his dismissal from the Garden, and his wider role as one of the leading figures in Australian scientific life. His international standing is shown by letters exchanged with many of the world’s other leading naturalists, as well as by the honours showered upon him. His collaboration with George Bentham in the preparation of the latter’s Flora australiensis is thoroughly documented, as are his exchanges with Bentham and others on the basis of biological classification and on Darwin’s controversial ideas about the origin of species, his active participation in an international network of exchanges of plants and animals for acclimatization or museum purposes, his leading role in furthering the exploration of inland Australia, and various aspects of his personality and private life.
There is a substantial historical introduction, and the biographical register begun in Volume 1 is extended to cover names newly appearing in this volume.

Europa vor der Alternative: Zentralismus oder Regionalisierung?

Dargestellt am Beispiel der Gewässerpolitik im Kontext der Staats- und Verwaltungsreformen West-Europas

Hans-Jörg Mueller

Einerseits geht es dem Verfasser um den Gewässerschutz als Teil des gesamten Umweltschutzes auf nationaler und europäischer (EG-Europarat) Ebene - «Wer immer in Zukunft eine Übersicht ... bekommen will, wird auf diese Studie zurückgreifen müssen» (Prof. Theodor Leuenberger) andererseits um die Regionalisierung (und Demokratisierung) der politischen Institutionen. Der Verfasser bleibt nicht bei der Schilderung des status quo stehen, sondern formuliert und begründet 10 Thesen für die Regionalisierung und eine regionalisierte Gewässerschutzpolitik. Diese 10 Thesen münden in die Forderung nach einer verstärkten und spezifisch definierten Zusammenarbeit zwischen der Europäischen Gemeinschaft und dem Europarat. Die Arbeit: «verdient die hohe Qualifikation monumental» (aus der Beurteilung von Prof. Dr. H.Chr. Binswanger).

Political socialization has gained in significance for the stabilization and innovation of political systems in East and West. In this respect, the political levels of consciousness, convictions, attitudes, behavioural patterns and actions of the young are especially noteworthy. For some time now, substantial changes have been perceptible in connection with processes of modernization in developed and developing industrial societies. East-West relations have not been left untouched. The articles in this reader offer an illustrative insight into more recent developments in a variety of countries. At the same time, they document the current line of empirical and theoretical international research, carried out by both the established and rising generations in the field of political science and sociology.
