    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 24.95

    In Erased , Omer Bartov uncovers the rapidly disappearing vestiges of the Jews of western Ukraine, who were rounded up and murdered by the Nazis during World War II with help from the local populace.

    Indiana University Press 2015; US$ 34.99

    Antisemitism from Muslims has become a serious issue in Western Europe, although not often acknowledged as such.

  • Chichester in the 1960sby Alan H J Green

    The History Press 2015; US$ 24.78

    Chichester is the archetypal Georgian town with its streets of elegant buildings gathered closely around its ancient cathedral. It usually appears to today's first-time visitor that the city has been largely untouched by the hand of time - particularly the destructive hand that guided the 1960s. However, this is not the case: in the 1960s Chichester... more...

  • The Lion and the Starby Jonathan Friedman

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 45.00

    The Lion and the Star not only offers an informed glimpse into the intricacies of daily German life but also confirms the continuing danger of making sweeping generalizations about German Jews and non-Jews. In the aftermath of World War II, many viewed the Third Reich as an aberration in German history and laid blame with Hitler and his followers.... more...

  • Von der Dämonologie zum Unbewusstenby Maren Sziede; Helmut Zander

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 77.00

    As the science of man, anthropology was among the most exciting disciplines during the period of intense change from the early modern era to modernity. Where demons had once wielded their power, after 1800, it was now the unlimited shoals of the subconscious that were disseminated. Or did they actually stay right next to each other and... more...
