The Great War and the shaping of the 20th century by J. M Winter ( Book )
7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,274 libraries worldwide
The World War of 1914-1918, the Great War, was the first of the man-made disasters of the twentieth century. In many ways it was without precedent. Never had the battlefield been so vast, whether in the trenches, in the sky, or on and in the seas. Never had a war reached so deeply into the lives of people so far away from the battlefield. The shock waves generated by this cataclysmic event are felt to this day, as this dramatic narrative makes vividly clear. Here is.
Sites of memory, sites of mourning : the Great War in European cultural history by J. M Winter ( Book )
20 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 1,044 libraries worldwide
Jay Winter's powerful new study of the collective remembrance of the Great War offers a major reassessment of one of the critical episodes in the cultural history of the twentieth century. Using a great variety of literary, artistic, and architectural evidence, Dr. Winter looks anew at the culture of commemoration, and the ways in which communities endeavoured to find collective solace after 1918. Taking issue with the prevailing 'Modernist' interpretation of the European reaction to the appalling events of 1914-1918, Dr. Winter instead argues that what characterized that reaction was, rather, the attempt to interpret the Great War within traditional frames of reference. Tensions arose, inevitably.
The Great War in history : debates and controversies, 1914 to the present by J. M Winter ( Book )
14 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 834 libraries worldwide
"Since the Armistice, a vast literature has been produced on the First World War and its repercussions. For the first time, two leading historians from the United States and France have produced a fully comparative analysis of the ways in which this history has been written and interpreted. The book identifies three generations of historians, literary scholars, film directors and writers who have commented upon the war. Through a thematic structure, it assesses not only diplomatic and military studies but also the social and cultural interpretations of the Great War as seen primarily through the eyes of French, German, and British writers. It provides a case study of the practice of history in the twentieth century and of the enduring importance of the national lens in shaping historical narrative. This study will prove invaluable reading to scholars and students in history, war studies, European studies, and international relations."--BOOK JACKET.
Remembering war : the Great War between memory and history in the twentieth century by J. M Winter ( Book )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 791 libraries worldwide
"This is a volume on remembrance and war in the twentieth century. Jay Winter locates the fascination with the subject of memory within a long-term trajectory that focuses on the Great War. Images, languages, and practices that appeared during and after the two world wars focused on the need to acknowledge the victims of war and shaped the ways in which future conflicts were imagined and remembered. At the core of the "memory boom" is an array of collective meditations on war and the victims of war, Winter says." "The book begins by tracing the origins of contemporary interest in memory and then describes practices of remembrance that have linked history and memory, particularly in the first half of the twentieth century. The author also considers "theaters of memory" - film, television, museums, and war crimes trials in which the past is seen through public representations of memories. The book concludes with reflections on the significance of these practices for the cultural history of the twentieth century as a whole."--BOOK JACKET.
Dreams of peace and freedom : utopian moments in the twentieth century by J. M Winter ( Book )
9 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 785 libraries worldwide
"In the wake of the monstrous projects of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and others in the twentieth century, the idea of utopia has been discredited. Yet, historian Jay Winter suggests, alongside the "major utopians" who murdered millions in their attempts to transform the world were disaparate groups of individuals trying to imagine a radically better world. This book focuses on some of the twentieth century's "minor utopias," whose stories, overshadowed by the Holocaust and the Gulag, suggest that the future need not be as catastrophic as the past."--Jacket.
The Great War and the shaping of the 20th century ( Visual )
11 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 750 libraries worldwide
Explores the effect of World War I on the twentieth century. The World War of 1914-1918, the Great War, was the first of the man-made disasters of the twentieth century. In many ways it was without precedent. Never had the battlefield been so vast, whether in the trenches, in the sky, or on and in the seas. Never had a war reached so deeply into the lives of people so far away from the battlefield. The shock waves generated by this cataclysmic event are felt to this day, as this dramatic narrative makes vividly clear. Here is. presented a history of world war in a new way. The military flow of the conflict - from the invasion of Belgium in the summer of 1914 to the collapse of Germany in the autumn of 1918 - is followed throughout. But these epic events are rendered with fresh insights by the interweaving of the cultural history of the time - the hopes and dreams, the ideas and aspirations, the exhilaration and despair, both of those remote from power and of those who led them. This is a. journey into the intense personal experiences of people trying to make sense of war on a scale the world had never seen. Like the acclaimed television series that it accompanies, The Great War pays special attention to the troubling aftermath of the war: the emergence of new nations amid old and festering problems; how the victims and survivors dealt with loss and disfigurement, guilt and hatred; and the terrible legacy of brutality that has marked so much of the. twentieth century.
