    Palgrave Macmillan 2002; US$ 175.00

    This volume highlights the complex intra-alliance politics of what was seen as the likeliest flash point of conflict in the Cold War and demonstrates how strongly determinant were concerns about relationships with allies in the choices made by all the major governments.

  • The Wallby Christopher Hilton

    The History Press 2011; US$ 7.99

    For almost three decades, the Cold War was focused on Berlin, where the two (nuclear-armed) sides were kept apart by a twelve-foot wall, which had appeared almost overnight in August 1961. For a generation, until its fall in November 1989, it not only divided the city of Berlin, but also symbolised the confrontation between capitalist West and socialist... more...

  • Life among the Ruinsby Jennifer V. Evans

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 115.00

    As home to 1920s excess and Hitler's Final Solution, Berlin's physical and symbolic landscape was an important staging ground for the highs and lows of modernity. In Cold War Berlin, social and political boundaries were porous, and the rubble gave refuge to a re-emerging gay and lesbian scene, youth gangs, prostitutes, hoods, and hustlers. more...

  • Religion and the Rise of Historyby Leonard S. Smith

    James Clarke & Co 2010; US$ 50.50

    This is the first intellectual history to study the ideal-type of model-building methodology of Otto Hintze (1861-1940) to Western historical thought and to suggest that Martin Luther also held to a way that was deeply incarnational, dynamic, and/or 'in-with-and-under'.
