    Berghahn Books 2015; US$ 120.00

    Cold War history has emphasized the division of Europe into two warring camps with separate ideologies and little in common.

  • Empire of Picturesby Sonke Kunkel

    In Cold War historiography, the 1960s are often described as a decade of mounting diplomatic tensions and international social unrest.

    This is the story of the rise to national power of a desperately poor young man from the Texas Hill Country.

  • The Great Merger Movement in American Business, 1895?1904by Naomi R. Lamoreaux

    Cambridge University Press 1988; US$ 32.00

    Between 1895 and 1904 a great wave of mergers swept through the manufacturing sector of the United States' economy. This book explores the causes of the mergers, arguing that there was nothing natural or inevitable about turn-of-the-century combinations. Despite this conclusion, the author does not accept the view that they were necessarily a threat... more...
