  • Understanding Multiculturalismby Johannes Feichtinger; Gary B. Cohen

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 32.95

    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...

  • Joseph IIby T.C.W. Blanning

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 70.95

    Joseph II (1741--90) -- son and eventual successor of Maria Theresa -- has conventionally been seen in the context of the "Enlightened Despot'' reformers.

  • Hitler and Czechoslovakia in World War IIby Patrick Crowhurst

    I.B.Tauris 2013; US$ 45.00

    The invasion of Czechoslovakia by Nazi Germany in March 1939 helped to precipitate Europe?s descent into World War II six months later. The move, supposedly to protect the Sudeten Germans, shocked many in Europe, who saw it as a clear statement of intent by Hitler. Here, Patrick Crowhurst argues that occupation of the Sudetenland and the Czech lands... more...

  • Metternichby Wolfram Siemann

    C.H. Beck 2013; US$ 9.32

    Hauptbeschreibung Metternich gilt immer noch als Exponent der Restauration, des Polizeistaats, der Demagogenverfolgungen, als der Unterdrücker vieler europäischer Nationalitäten, denen er den Weg zum autonomen Nationalstaat versperrt habe, kurzum: er ist zur Chiffre für die Konstruktion einer rückwärtsgewandten Antimoderne geworden. Der Hinweis auf... more...

  • Islam, Christianity and the Making of Czech Identity, 1453–1683by Laura Lisy-Wagner

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 119.95

    Working through the descriptive and ethnographic texts produced by Czech speakers about Islam and the Ottoman Empire, this study brings to light how they used this discourse to create Czech identities. Rather than simply constructing identity in opposition to the Islamic Other, Laura Lisy-Wagner investigates how the authors played the Holy Roman and... more...

  • Through Grown-up Eyesby Robert Henrey

    Polperro Heritage Press 2013; US$ 13.05

    Bobby Henrey was eight when he was improbably chosen by film director Carol Reed and producer Sir Alexander Korda to star alongside Sir Ralph Richardson in The Fallen Idol based on a Graham Greene story. Released in 1948, the film was an instant box office success; the child?s performance was singled out for critical acclaim and it remains one of... more...
