Power : a political history of the twentieth century by C. S Nicholls( Book )

14 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 890 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 20th century has witnessed power struggles of unrivaled size and complexity. The rise of the superpowers, the birth of a global community in which virtually every dispute has international ramifications, and above all the horrific escalation of violence (unimaginable when the century began), all mark our modern era. Written by a team of distinguished historians, and packed with hundreds of stunning color illustrations, Power offers a vividly narrated, informative introduction to the great power conflicts of the 20th century. Everything is covered here: the Boxer Rebellion and the Bay of Pigs, the bombing of Hiroshima and the invasion of Grenada, the Ku Klux Klan and the Baader-Meinhof group, Sikh nationalists and the Khmer Rouge, and of course the two world wars and all the major political figures of the last ninety years. Arresting photographs and maps, datafiles, six chronological tables, and more than 150 capsule biographies complement the general narrative, and the contributors include special in-depth features on topics of particular relevance to our time, such as espionage, terrorism, fanatical groups, and propaganda. Boasting a distinguished roster of consulting editors--William McNeill, Akira Iriye, and Peter Pulzer--and such eminent contributors as Paul Kennedy, Wolfgang Krieger, and Michael Geyer, this authoritative introduction is at once a panoramic survey and a valuable reference for more in-depth study of the political forces that have shaped our lives

Red strangers : the white tribe of Kenya by C. S Nicholls( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the stately lowering of the Union flag in December 1963, seventy years of British rule in Kenya came to an abrupt end. The effect of independence on white society was devastating. Thousands of second and third-generation settlers abandoned their homes and livelihoods, never to return. But what had attracted the European pioneers to settle in Kenya in the first place? And how, within little more than half a century, did white society develop from its early days of mud-floored shacks of corrugated iron to the sophisticated cities of Nairobi and Mombasa? C.S. Nicholls reveals Kenya’s forgotten history, from its early explorers and the creation of the Imperial British East Africa Company, through two World Wars, to the demise of colonial rule and Kenyan African ascendancy
The history of St Antony's College, Oxford, 1950-2000 by C. S Nicholls( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

St Antony's College, Oxford, was founded by Antonin Besse, a French entrepreneur who wanted to establish an international college in France. When this proved impossible, he turned to the University of Oxford, and the college opened its doors to students there in October 1950. Under the inspired leadership of William Deakin, St Antony's became a centre for postgraduate teaching, specializing in area studies. From the beginning it was the most deliberately inter-national of all Oxford colleges, and by 1999 its students were drawn from over forty different countries. It was also the first Oxford college to admit substantial numbers of both men and women. Based on archival materials and personal recollections, this book recounts the college's struggles to develop and fund its ambitious academic programmes. It also describes the changing lifestyle of its students in a period of expanding postgraduate education
