  • Post-Holocaust France and the Jews, 1945-1955by Steven T. Katz; Seán Hand

    NYU Press 2015; US$ 36.00

    Despite an outpouring of scholarship on the Holocaust, little work has focused on what happened to Europe?s Jewish communities after the war ended. And unlike many other European nations in which the majority of the Jewish population perished, France had a significant post?war Jewish community that numbered in the hundreds of thousands. Post-Holocaust... more...

  • Group Conflict and Political Mobilization in Bahrain and the Arab Gulfby Justin Gengler

    Indiana University Press 2015; US$ 29.99

    The oil-producing states of the Arab Gulf are said to sink or swim on their capacity for political appeasement through economic redistribution.

  • A Traveller in Thirteenth-Century Arabiaby Professor G Rex Smith

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 119.95

    This is the first English translation of the Tarikh al-Mustabsir, written in the early quarter of the thirteenth century by Ibn al-Mujawir.

Ibn al-Mujawir was a man who in all probability... more...

  • The Armenian Genocide: The Essential Reference Guideby Alan Whitehorn; Alan Whitehorn

    ABC-CLIO 2015; US$ 89.00

    The Armenian Genocide has often been considered a template for subsequent genocides and is one of the first genocides of the 20th century. As such, it holds crucial historical significance, and it is critically important that today's students understand this case study of inhumanity. This book provides a much-needed, long-overdue reference volume... more...

  • Dancing with the Enemyby Paul Glaser

    Oneworld Publications 2015; US$ 18.99

    When Paul Glaser discovered his Aunt Rosie?s remarkable wartime diaries, photographs and letters he was shocked: he had been raised as a Catholic, and had no knowledge of his Jewish heritage. But the story he was to uncover and reconstruct was one far larger and more dramatic than he could have ever imagined. Rosie Glaser was a magnetic force – hopeful,... more...

  • Jewish Space in Contemporary Polandby Erica T. Lehrer; Michael Meng

    Indiana University Press 2015; US$ 34.99

    In a time of national introspection regarding the country?s involvement in the persecution of Jews, Poland has begun to reimagine spaces of and for Jewishness in the Polish landscape, not as a form of nostalgia but as a way to encourage the pluralization of contemporary society. The essays in this book explore issues of the restoration, restitution,... more...

    The study investigates how the semantics of peace functioned in domestic conflicts between 1760 and 1810. The analysis of communicative practices of the actors in court reveals the importance of notions of peace in conflict regulation at the political micro-level. This first systematic exploration of the discourse on domestic tranquility... more...

  • Lucan und der Prinzipatby Nadja Kimmerle

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 154.00

    Lucan?s Bellum Civile ( Pharsalia ) is traditionally read as a political critique of the Principate. However, several features of this text run counter to this interpretation. This study reexamines Lucan?s work using the model of the unreliable narrator to illuminate its portrayal of contradictory structures in Nero?s Principate. The... more...
