Founding Weimar : violence and the German Revolution of 1918-1919 by MARK JONES( Book )

15 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The German Revolution of 1918-19 was a transformative moment of modern European history. It was both the end of the German Empire and the First World War, as well as the birth of the Weimar Republic, the short-lived democracy that preceded the establishment of the Nazi dictatorship. A time of great political drama, the revolution saw unprecedented levels of mass mobilisation and political violence, including the 'Spartacist Uprising' of January 1919, the murders of Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg, and the violent suppression of strikes and the Munich Councils' Republic. Drawing upon the historiography of the French Revolution, Founding Weimar is the first study to place crowds and the politics of the streets at the heart of the revolution's history. Carefully argued and meticulously researched, it will appeal to anyone with an interest in the relationship between violence, revolution, and state-formation, as well as in the history of modern Germany."--Provided by publisher
Am Anfang war Gewalt die deutsche Revolution 1918/19 und der Beginn der Weimarer Republik by Mark Jones( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Historiker Mark Jones schildert die dramatische Gründungsphase der Weimarer Republik erstmals als eine Geschichte der Gewalt. Er zeigt, wie eine anfangs friedliche Revolution in einer Reihe von Tabubrüchen endet, einschließlich des Mordes an Frauen und Kindern durch Soldaten der sozialdemokratisch geführten Regierung. Diese Erfahrung wurde für das weitere Schicksal Deutschlands prägend - bis hin zur entfesselten Gewalt des NS-Regimes. Anhand neu erschlossener Archivquellen, darunter zahlreiche Berichte von Zeitzeugen, führt Mark Jones den Leser an die Orte der staatlich legitimierten und ausgelösten Gewaltexzesse dieser Zeit und lässt die Stimmen der Täter, ihrer Opfer und deren Familien lebendig werden.--
