    This study details how the reform movements and attempts to establish parliamentary institutions in the Persian Gulf states of Kuwait, Bahrain, and Dubai between the First World War and the independent era of the 1970s represented a milestone in the history of the region, creating a legacy for future generations, but was a unique transition in the... more...

  • Herzl's Visionby Shlomo Avineri; Haim Watzman

    BlueBridge 2014; US$ 15.99

    Theodor Herzl had been a successful Viennese journalist and a less successful playwright with no political ambitions. That changed in 1896, when he published The Jewish State. In response to the wide resonance that the book received, Herzl convened the first Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland, in 1897, which founded the Zionist Organization... more...

  • The Sasanian World through Georgian Eyesby Stephen H. Rapp

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 154.95

    Georgian literary sources for Late Antiquity are commonly held to be later productions devoid of historical value. As a result, scholarship outside the Republic of Georgia has privileged Graeco-Roman and even Armenian narratives. However, when investigated within the dual contexts of a regional literary canon and the active participation of Caucasia’s... more...

  • Great Catastrophe: Armenians and Turks in the Shadow of Genocideby Thomas de Waal

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 21.99

    The destruction of the Armenians of the Ottoman Empire in 1915-16 was the greatest atrocity of World War I. Around one million Armenians were killed, and the survivors were scattered across the world. Although it is now a century old, the issue of what most of the world calls the Armenian Genocide of 1915 is still a live and divisive issue that mobilizes... more...

  • Leipziger Juden und die DDRby Hendrik Niether

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2014; US$ 39.46

    Am Beispiel Leipzigs, der zweitgrößten Stadt in der DDR, zeichnet die Studie die politische Erfahrungsgeschichte von Juden unter den Bedingungen von Sozialismus und Kaltem Krieg nach.

  • Eichmann's Jewsby Doron Rabinovici; Nick Somers

    Wiley 2014; US$ 25.00

    The question of the collaboration of Jews with the Nazi regime during the persecution and extermination of European Jewry is one of the most difficult and sensitive issues surrounding the Holocaust. How could people be forced to cooperate in their own destruction? Why would they help the Nazi authorities round up their own people for deportation, managing... more...

  • Making History in Iranby Farzin Vejdani

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 60.00

    Iranian history was long told through a variety of stories and legend, tribal lore and genealogies, and tales of the prophets. But in the late nineteenth century, new institutions emerged to produce and circulate a coherent history that fundamentally reshaped these fragmented narratives and dynastic storylines. Farzin Vejdani investigates this transformation... more...

  • Meine Krone in der Ascheby Hanna Zack Miley

    'fontis 2014; US$ 17.99

    Als Hannelore (Hanna) Zack am 24. Juli 1939 - als siebenjähriges Mädchen - Köln in einem Zug Richtung London verließ, wusste sie das noch nicht: Sie war Teil des legendären "Kindertransports", dem kühnen Unterfangen, das 10.000 jüdische Kinder vor Hitlers Nazi-Regime rettete, indem es ihnen die sichere Fahrt nach England ermöglichte. In den folgenden... more...

  • Don't Be Afraid of the Bulletsby Laura Kasinof

    Arcade Publishing 2014; US$ 24.95

    Laura Kasinof studied Arabic in college and moved to Yemen a few years later—after a friend at a late-night party in Washington, DC, recommended the country as a good place to work as a freelance journalist. When she first moved to Sanaa in 2009, she was the only American reporter based in the country. She quickly fell in love with Yemen?s people... more...
