  • Staat, Verwaltung und Raum im langen 19. Jahrhundert. Einleitung

    • Authors: Stefan Nellen, Thomas Stockinger
      Abstract: Nearly all theories of the ›modern‹ state consider a specific relationship with space to be one of its defining characteristics. This relationship is often conceptualized as ›territoriality‹: exclusive and homogenous control of legislation and enforcement within an exactly delimited area. Administration frequently appears as an instrument of this control. Recent debates on the concepts of ›the state‹,›administration

      Abstract: On the basis of what structures, and according to what kinds of deliberations and considerations, did premodern administrations work' This article uses the example of early modern visitations in Bavaria to show how important pragmatism was in administrative practice, and how and with what consequences routines were developed. It is a plea for an interpretation of administrative work beyond current assumptions and epoch boundaries.

  • (Um-)Ordnen des Grenzraums zwischen dem Salzburger und Tiroler
           Herrschaftsbereich im Zillertal im 18. und 19. Jahrhundert

    • Authors: Ellinor Forster
      Abstract: Alongside the relevant terms of this issue, »state«, »space« and »administration«, this contribution shows the intertwined representations of order, their administration and thus the governance of the subjects in the sovereignty areas of Salzburg and Tyrol in the Zillertal. The different ideas of space – investigated from the perspective of various groups of the population, officials and the government centre – changed throughout the examined period. At the beginning the authorities in the government centre endeavored to keep the borders open for a mutual exchange whereas the local officials used their »administration tools« to stage a competition with the officials of the neighbor district by e.g. blocking and redirecting ways. By this, a tendential more open space construcion met a more mistrustful and closing one. In the context of negotiating for an equation between Tyrol and Salzburg in their border regions – carried by the new developed representations of a state with a clearly defined sovereignty area, which can be ruled without any foreign influence up until the borders – also the measures of the rulers and the government centres started to change. Borders got adjusted and a clear assignment of the subjects was demanded. However, the more exact the accordance of space and sovereignty was intended, the more obvious got the impossibility of this undertaking. Seemed-to-be clear defined border lines appeared vague when regarded closely. Their official description collided with the one of the subjects. The »space acting« of the subjects was determined by the sovereign specifications and controlled by the administering work of the officials but the subjects developed their own strategies to deal with inventions in their space constructions and to adjust them.

  • Building a Local Administration Abroad. The French Consulate in Salonica
           in the 19th Century

    • Authors: Mathieu Jestin
      Abstract: Depending on national legislations and established in the territory of a sovereign entity, consulates acted as miniature States, governing a territory whose seat can be compared to a capital, directly administering a community, or participating in economic, political and cultural activities of their area of expertise. The aim of this paper is to consider the consular institution as a French administrative link abroad and to understand how the French State was integrating it, step by step, into its own logic of internal construction. While the process of modernization was concerning any kind of public administration into the French borders, consulates, even if they were integrating into this impetus, had to take in account their local reality, the space within they acted. A focus on the French consulate in Salonica in the nineteenth century will enable us to put into perspective and application these declarations of intent by the French central government in an Ottoman space which itself underwent many changes. By a local approach of a global phenomenon, this paper is presented as a »history of the administrative reality«.

  • Akteure im Dazwischen. Griechisch-orthodoxe Stifterinnen und Stifter
           zwischen Wien und dem Osmanischen Reich (1750–1918)

    • Authors: Nathalie Patricia Soursos, Anna Ransmayr
      Abstract: From the late 18th century to the end of the Habsburg Monarchy in 1918 Vienna’s two Greek-orthodox communities administered a remarkable number of endowments. By founding endowments the benefactors acted between several spaces and subspaces. The transgression of boundaries by endowments addressed to the benefactors’ hometowns in the Ottoman Empire as well as the instability of these boundaries in the 19th century led to various problems in the interaction with the state authorities. But also endowments given to Viennese institutions were sometimes problematic depending on the benefactors’ character as either Ottoman or Habsburg subjects. In contrast to Ottoman subjects Habsburg subjects could also endow real estate and thus show their integration into the Viennese bourgeoisie. In this article we discuss the legal frameworks for the administration of endowments in the two Greek communities of Vienna as well as its practical realisation in interaction with the Habsburg authorities.

  • Grundherrschaftliche Verwaltung, Staat und Raum in den böhmischen und
           österreichischen Ländern der Habsburgermonarchie vom ausgehenden 18.
           Jahrhundert bis 1848

    • Authors: Josef Löffler
      Abstract: The purpose of this article is to analyze the relation between manorial administration, emerging state and space in the Austrian and Bohemian lands of the Habsburg monarchy between the end of the 18th century and the abolishment of the manorial system in 1848. The themes that will be discussed are the spaces of manorial administration with a focus on the various manorial rights and their spatial relation to each other, the role of manors in the state building process which is in the Habsburg Monarchy closely linked with the reform period in the second half of the 18th century and finally the relationship between state, manors and subjects in the first half of the 19th century with emphasis on the administrative practice.

  • Von der Beschreibung zur Verdichtung. Der Bezirk als Verwaltungsraum im
           Großherzogtum Baden zwischen 1809 und den 1870er-Jahren

    • Authors: Rüdiger von Krosigk
      Abstract: This article explores the spatial generation and perception of administrative districts. It has a particular focus on how certain administrative practices contributed to diminishing spatial distance between district offices and local society, that is, residents and municipalities, from the early 19th century to the 1870s in the Grand Duchy of Baden. Two di erent administrative systems – a centralized one introduced in 1809 and a more participative one dating from 1863/1865 – characterize the period under consideration. With regard to the methodological approach, the understanding of the genera- tion and perception of administrative spaces is informed by cultural, communications, and media studies. With respect to the spatial generation and perception of the administrative districts, two administrative practices are of particular interest. Firstly, administrative visitations (›Orts- bereisungen‹) were periodically carried out in the villages by the district officers, starting in the early 19th century, to gather information as the basis of a ›close‹ description of the administrative, agricultural, economic, infrastructural, security, welfare and health conditions in the districts for the purpose of administrative reports. Oral communication and immediacy in conducting the administrative visitations contributed in particular to reducing distance between district administrations and local society. Secondly, the article explores the role of honorary district councilors as middlemen between local society and district administration from the mid-1860s. In their roles as experts, advisers, and mediators – which they also fulfilled in the context of administrative visitations – the honorary district councilors enhanced the proximity of local society to the district administration and in this way contributed to the perception of the district as a rather small space.

  • Provincializing the Dutch State: South Holland in the 19th Century

    • Authors: Stefan Couperus, Harm Kaal, Nico Randeraad, Paul van Trigt
      Abstract: In contrast to the image of the Netherlands as a solid state since the early modern period, this article argues that Dutch statehood was the product of a hard won process that required a good part of the nineteenth century to reach some sort of administrative consolidation. We look at state building from a decentered perspective, not so much from above or below, but rather from the middle, concentrating ourselves on the province of South-Holland, and from within, foregrounding the piecemeal fine-tuning of the administrative system at the provincial level. We show that every administrative intervention had a spatial element or – to put it differently – created its own spatiality. The province, in that sense, was not a fixed territorial entity, but an amalgamation of spatial properties, depending on the administrative issue at stake.

  • Die Verwaltungsgliederung Preußens zwischen historisch-ständischen,
           administrativ-staatlichen und liberal-politischen Interessen (1815-1867)

    • Authors: Anna Gianna Manca
      Abstract: The paper deals with the question of the ›administrative districts‹ in an overall Prussian perspective and emphasizes, above all, the central political role played by the provincial districts and their main authorities within the state space and the administrative activity. On this basis, it will be possible to adequately appreciate the revolutionary but unsuccessful attempt to abolish them 1848 by the liberal-democratic wing of the Constitutional Commission within of the Prussian National Assembly, as it has not yet been made by historiography. First, the origins of the spatial-territorial division of Prussia existing around the middle of the nineteenth century are discussed. Within this framework special attention has been paid to the introduction of a provincial division, which led to that organization of internal administration in four instances under the minister (provinces, governmental districts, districts, municipalities), which was a peculiarity of the Prussian political and administrative spatial division compared with the other states of the German Confederation. Questions such as those on the basic division of the state space are so radical that they are usually placed with some prospect of success only in the case of state foundations or revolutions. Immediately afterward, they tend to be included in the list of »depolitized technicalities«, although they retain their fundamental importance for ensuring the political and administrative continuity of the state.

  • Vom unwilligen, unfähigen Schulzen zum kompetenten Bürgermeister'
           Verhaltenslehren und Lernprozesse im ländlichen Raum des 19. Jahrhunderts

    • Authors: Anette Schlimm
      Abstract: This article considers the role of the local village mayors in East Elbian Prussia and Bavaria during the second half of the 19th century. These actors played an important part in the process of state expansion, but it is still unclear how the unpaid mayors were able to meet the challenges of everyday action between the local community and the state. This problem is explored in this paper on the basis of administrative and local sources as well as different kinds of contemporary instructions. It is shown that long-term learning processes, as well as the growing autonomy of local communities, made it more likely that village mayors became experienced ›players‹ in meeting the everyday administrative and political demands.

  • Staat, Raum und Infrastruktur: Wie die Eisenbahn nach Galizien kam

    • Authors: Nadja Weck
      Abstract: The advantages of the railway were not only recognised in Vienna, also in the Habsburgian provinces one banked on this new type of transportation as a bringer of progress. Using the example of Galicia, I show in my article how the initiative and the involvement of local actors promoted the building of a railway network in the north-eastern crownland. My article focuses on the main motives for the implementation of the railway in Vienna respectively Lemberg (Lwów, Lviv). The article is divided into three parts. While the first part deals with the expectations raised by the railway, the second part concentrates on the political circumstances which accompanied the construction of the Galician railway network. The third part focuses on the Galician capital as one traffic junction in a polycentric railway network.

  • Bezirke als neue Räume der Verwaltung. Die Einrichtung der staatlichen
           Bezirksverwaltung in den Kernländern der Habsburgermonarchie nach 1848.
           Ein Problemaufriss

    • Authors: Thomas Stockinger
      Abstract: This article deals with the introduction of state administrative institutions at the district level in the Habsburg Monarchy and their several reforms in the period from 1848 to 1868. It analyzes these processes in a spatial perspective and with a focus on implementation. First, it shows that new spaces of administration were constructed on several levels, especially the districts themselves and the district offices. This was done not by unilaterally expunging earlier forms of spatial organization, but rather in complex interplay with them. Numerous groups of actors were involved in negotiating this, including not only politicians and bureaucrats, but also members of the general population in various roles. In this sense there was a substantial component of ›state-building from below‹ in the creation of the district administrations. Finally, some consequences arising from the new organization of space are outlined, from the quantitative increase in state administrative activity via improved possibilities for production and use of spatial knowledge to advances in the construction of the territory as a unitary space of the state.

  • Space and Administrative Boundaries at the Birth of the Italian Kingdom

    • Authors: Luigi Blanco
      Abstract: The essay analyses the relationship between administration and territory at the birth of the Italian unitary state. Follow­ ing the discussions of the time involving scholars of diverse disciplinary provenance, politicians, and administrators, the essay highlights the main problems encountered by the de­ sign of the administrative districts of the new Kingdom of Italy: the territorial contradictions and the imbalances that conditioned their initial structure and subsequent history; the legacy of the boundaries and internal territorial divisions of the former states of the peninsula; the various propos­ als put forward for the country’s regional organization by geographers, statisticians and politicians, even before the completion of uni cation; the territorial and administrative problems of the new state: natural or arti cial districts, small or large provinces, the weight of municipalities, projects of regionalization; the contribution of new sciences, such as ge­ ography and statistics; the choice of administrative central­ization, with its inevitable consequences on the boundaries of territorial partitions, linked to the ›exceptionality‹ of the historical moment.

  • Wieder gelesen: »Frido Wagener, Neubau der Verwaltung«

    • Authors: Margrit Seckelmann
      Abstract: Margrit Seckelmann’s re-reading of Frido Wagener’s »New Construction of Administration« (»Neubau der Verwaltung«, 1969) places this book in the setting of Western Germany’s late 1960s and their quest for an enlightened planning after the mere ›re-construction‹ (of buildings as well as of democracy) in earlier post-war Western Germany. Wageners struggle to ›rationalize‹ planning can be seen as an equally grand and doomed to fail project – the judgement of posterity has yet to be spoken.

  • »Les Maires en France du Consulat à nos jours« im Spiegel der aktuellen

    • Authors: Bettina Severin-Barboutie
      Abstract: The volume »Les Maires en France du Consulat à nos jours« published in France in 1986 was the first historical work to open long-term perspectives on French mayors in the 19th and 20th century. On the one hand, these perspectives resulted from the data obtained within the framework of a quantitative long-term analysis; on the other hand, they relied on qualitative explorations of selected administrative units or regions. In the re-reading of »Les Maires en France du Consulat à nos jours« this article shows that the volume has remained a reference work for the history of French municipalities until today, even though it does not always allow to answer current research questions.
