    Carrel Books 2016; US$ 39.99

    During the tumultuous 1950s in America, sex was as threatening to the nation?s moral order as communism.

  • Arab Nationalism in the Twentieth Centuryby Adeed Dawisha; Adeed Dawisha

    Princeton University Press 2016; US$ 24.95

    Like a great dynasty that falls to ruin and is eventually remembered more for its faults than its feats, Arab nationalism is remembered mostly for its humiliating rout in the 1967 Six Day War, for inter-Arab divisions, and for words and actions distinguished by their meagerness. But people tend to forget the majesty that Arab nationalism once was.... more...

  • Communism?s Jewish Questionby András Kovacs

    De Gruyter Oldenbourg 2016; US$ 168.00

    In the last decades, previously secret documents on Jewish issues emerged from the newly opened Communist archives.

  • Epidemics, Empire, and Environmentsby Michael Zeheter

    University of Pittsburgh Press 2016; US$ 45.00

    Throughout the nineteenth century, cholera was a global scourge against human populations.
