  • Diversity and Dissentby Howard Louthan; Gary B. Cohen; Franz A. J. Szabo

    Berghahn Books 2011; US$ 99.00

    Early modern Central Europe was the continent?s most decentralized region politically and its most diverse ethnically and culturally. With the onset of the Reformation, it also became Europe?s most religiously divided territory and potentially its most explosive in terms of confessional conflict and war. Focusing on the Holy Roman Empire and the... more...

  • From Antiquities to Heritageby Anne Eriksen

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 90.00

    Eighteenth-century gentleman scholars collected antiquities. Nineteenth-century nation states built museums to preserve their historical monuments. In the present world, heritage is a global concern as well as an issue of identity politics. What does it mean when runic stones or medieval churches are transformed from antiquities to monuments to... more...

  • Dictatorship as Experienceby Konrad H. Jarausch

    Berghahn Books 1999; US$ 34.95

    A decade after the collapse of communism, this volume presents a historical reflection on the perplexing nature of the East German dictatorship. In contrast to most political rhetoric, it seeks to establish a middle ground between totalitarianism theory, stressing the repressive features of the SED-regime, and apologetics of the socialist experiment,... more...

  • Dignity for the Voicelessby Ton Salman; Salvador Marti i Puig; Gemma van der Haar

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 95.00

    Willem Assies died in 2010 at the age of 55. The various stages of his career as a political anthropologist of Latin American illustrate how astute a researcher he was. He had a keen eye for the contradictions he observed during his fieldwork but also enjoyed theoretical debate. A distrust of power led him not only to attempt to understand ?people... more...

  • German Right in the Weimar Republic, Theby Larry Eugene Jones

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 95.00

    Significant recent research on the German Right between 1918 and 1933 calls into question received narratives of Weimar political history. The German Right in the Weimar Republic examines the role that the German Right played in the destabilization and overthrow of the Weimar Republic, with particular emphasis on the political and organizational... more...

  • Weary Warriorsby Pamela Moss; Michael J. Prince

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 95.00

    As seen in military documents, medical journals, novels, films, television shows, and memoirs, soldiers? invisible wounds are not innate cracks in individual psyches that break under the stress of war. Instead, the generation of weary warriors is caught up in wider social and political networks and institutions?families, activist groups, government... more...

  • Sacral Kingship Between Disenchantment and Re-enchantmentby Ronald G. Asch

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 95.00

    France and England are often seen as monarchies standing at opposite ends of the spectrum of seventeenth-century European political culture. On the one hand the Bourbon monarchy took the high road to absolutism, while on the other the Stuarts never quite recovered from the diminution of their royal authority following the regicide of Charles I in... more...

  • Nationalism and the Cinema in Franceby Hugo Frey

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 95.00

    It is often taken for granted that French cinema is intimately connected to the nation?s sense of identity and self-confidence. But what do we really know about that relationship? What are the nuances, insider codes, and hidden history of the alignment between cinema and nationalism? Hugo Frey suggests that the concepts of the ?political myth? and... more...

  • Pacific Futuresby Will Rollason

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 95.00

    The Pacific region presents a huge diversity of cultural forms, which have fuelled some of the most challenging ethnographic work undertaken in the discipline. But this challenge has come at a cost. Culture, often reconfigured as ?custom?, has often served to trap the people of the Pacific in the past of cultural reproduction, where everything is... more...

  • Creating Wildernessby Patrick Kupper

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 95.00

    The history of the Swiss National Park, from its creation in the years before the Great War to the present, is told for the first time in this book. Unlike Yellowstone Park, which embodied close cooperation between state-supported conservation and public recreation, the Swiss park put in place an extraordinarily strong conservation program derived... more...
