  • From Yalta to Berlinby W. R. Smyser

    Palgrave Macmillan 1999; US$ 100.00

    If one takes a map of Europe and draws one line from Paris to Moscow and another line from Stockholm to Rome, the two lines intersect remarkably close to the Brandenburg Gate," writes Smyser, in one of his characteristically smart observations. The author has a strong grasp of the leaders who quarreled over Germany between the end of the Second... more...

  • Royal Kinship. Anglo-German Family Networks 1815-1918by Clarissa Campbell Orr; John Davis; Andreas Gestrich; Jonathan Petropolous; Torsten Riotte; John Röhl; Daniel Schönpflug; Matthew Seligmann; Monika Wienfort; Karina Urbach

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 145.96

    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

    Hoe zou de geschiedenis van de Nederlanden (Noord en Zuid) er hebben uitgezien wanneer de nationaal-socialisten de Tweede Wereldoorlog hadden gewonnen?

  • 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. The contributions undermine the notion of violence as an intermittent or random visitor in the imagination and critical theory of modern... more...

  • Jugendhilfe und Schuleby Angelika Henschel; Rolf Krüger; Christof Schmitt; Waldemar Stange

    Schwere Fälle von gewalttätigen Ausschreitungen an Schulen haben eine neue Debatte um Jugendgewalt, Integration und Perspektivlosigkeit ausgelöst. Vor dem Hintergrund des schlechten Abschneidens des deutschen Schulsystems, wie es die PISA-Studien offen gelegt haben, sind aktuell mehr Bildung und mehr Förderung und vor allem mehr Kooperation von Schule... more...

  • Vom Umgang mit der Vergangenheit / Come affrontare il passato?by Christiane Liermann; Marta Margotti; Bernd Sösemann; Francesco Traniello

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 123.50

    Both Germany and Italy take an intense interest in each other's history between the seizure of power (1922 in Italy, 1933 in Germany) and the end of the Second World War. From a comparative viewpoint there has however been relative neglect of the question of how academe, the state, and society have attempted to come to terms with the heritage... more...

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2012; US$ 29.99

    Entziehen die Menschen in Deutschland der Demokratie das Vertrauen?
