    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 182.00

    Whenever the British Press wants to attack the Royal Family, they make a jibe about ?their foreign roots?. The Royals? as they say? are simply a posh version of German invaders. But did German relatives really influence decisions made by any British monarchs or are they just an ?imagined community?, invented by journalists and historians?... more...

    Amsterdam University Press 2006; US$ 74.25

  • Contemplating Violence.by Carl Niekerk

    Editions Rodopi 2011; US$ 59.00

    This volume illuminates the vexed treatment of violence in the German cultural tradition between two crucial, and radically different, violent outbreaks: the French Revolution, and the Holocaust and Second World War.

  • Driving the Soviets up the Wallby Hope M. Harrison

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 49.95 US$ 39.96

Hope Harrison's use of archival sources from the former East German and Soviet regimes is unrivalled, and from these sources she builds a highly original and provocative... more...
