  • Czechoslovakia between Stalin and Hitlerby Igor Lukes

    Oxford University Press 1996; US$ 87.99

    This is a diplomatic history of events leading up to the Munich crisis of 1938 in which Great Britain and France decided to appease Hitler's demands to annex the Sudentenland. While much has been written on this period, this book will be the most comprehensive to date and also the first to integrate a full understanding of the Czech role with wider... more...

  • Eros and Inwardness in Viennaby David S. Luft

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 52.00

    Although we usually think of the intellectual legacy of twentieth-century Vienna as synonymous with Sigmund Freud and his psychoanalytic theories, other prominent writers from Vienna were also radically reconceiving sexuality and gender. In this probing new study, David Luft recovers the work of three such writers: Otto Weininger, Robert Musil, and... more...

  • Critical Thinking in Slovakia after Socialismby Jonathan L. Larson

    Boydell & Brewer 2013; Not Available

    Critical Thinking in Slovakia after Socialism interrogates the putative relationship between critical thought and society through an ethnographic study of civic discourse in post-1989 Slovakia. more...

  • Understanding Multiculturalismby Johannes Feichtinger; Gary B. Cohen

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 34.95

    Multiculturalism has long been linked to calls for tolerance of cultural diversity, but today many observers are subjecting the concept to close scrutiny. After the political upheavals of 1968, the commitment to multiculturalism was perceived as a liberal manifesto, but in the post-9/11 era, it is under attack for its relativizing, particularist,... more...

  • Franz Joseph and Elisabethby Karen Owens

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2013; US$ 40.00

    In 1848, an 18-year-old boy assumed the throne of Austria, one of the most powerful countries in Europe. He would be its last significant emperor, the only monarch to serve two countries, and the last cogent head of the prestigious Habsburg dynasty. Emperor Franz Joseph's reign was marked by revolutions, often fueled by rising liberalism and nationalism,... more...

  • Entspannung in Europaby Gottfried Niedhart

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 24.00

    Mitte der 1960er Jahre trat der Ost-West-Konflikt in eine neue Phase ein. Auf die Konfrontation im Kalten Krieg folgte die antagonistische Kooperation in der Ära der Entspannung. Die Bundesrepublik leistete einen wesentlichen Beitrag zu dieser Entwicklung: Sie entschärfte die deutsche Frage, indem sie die territoriale Nachkriegsordnung... more...

  • The Limits of Loyaltyby Laurence Cole; Daniel Unowsky

    Berghahn Books 2007; US$ 34.95

    The overwhelming majority of historical work on the late Habsburg Monarchy has focused primarily on national movements and ethnic conflicts, with the result that too little attention has been devoted to the state and ruling dynasty. This volume is the first of its kind to concentrate on attempts by the imperial government to generate a dynastic-oriented... more...

  • Rethinking Vienna 1900by Steven Beller

    Berghahn Books 2001; US$ 34.95

    Fin-de-siècle Vienna remains a central event in the birth of the century's modern culture. Our understanding of what happened in those key decades in Central Europe at the turn of the century has been shaped in the last years by an historiography presided over by Carl Schorske's Fin de Siècle Vienna and the model of the relationship between politics... more...

  • Metternich's German Policy, Volume IIby Enno E. Kraehe

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 64.00 US$ 58.24

    Using new archival sources, this book shows that Prussia sought not the unity of Germany but its partition into five masses loosely enough joined to assure her control of the North. Hardenberg, not Metternich, supported the feudalistic claims of the estates suppressed by Napoleon and the resurrection of ancient estates' assemblies based mainly on... more...

  • Havelby Michael Zantovsky

    Atlantic Books 2014; US$ 11.99

    Vaclav Havel: iconoclast and philosopher king, an internationally successful playwright who became a political dissident and then, reluctantly, a president. His pivotal role in the Velvet Revolution and the modern Czech Republic makes him a key figure of the twentieth century. Michael Zantovsky was one of Havel's closest confidants. They lived through... more...
