Islam and postcolonial narrative by John Erickson( )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 1,962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Islam and Postcolonial Narrative, John Erickson examines four major authors from the 'third world' - Assia Djebar, Adelkebir Khatibi, Tahar ben Jelloun and Salman Rushdie - all of whom have engaged in a critique of the relationship between Islam and the West. Erickson analyses the narrative strategies they deploy to explore the encounter between Western and Islamic values and reveals their use of the cultural resources of Islam, as well as their intertextual exchanges with other third-world writers. Erickson argues against any homogenising mode of writing labelled 'postcolonial' and any view of Islamic and Western discourses as monolithic or totalising. He reveals the way these writers valorise expansiveness, polyvalence and indeterminacy as part of an attempt to represent the views of individuals and groups that live on the cultural and political margins of society

The Soviet high command; a military-political history, 1918-1941 by John Erickson( Book )

41 editions published between 1961 and 2001 in English and held by 1,026 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The "Tukhachevskii Affair" is investigated together with Stalin's murderous military purge and its consequences for the Red Army. Poor Soviet performance in the "Winter War" with Finland prompted hasty reforms, but neither reorganization nor rearmament was complete before the German invasion in June 1941. First suffering catastrophic loss inflicted by the Wehrmacht, the Red Army had recovered sufficiently by December 1941 to defend Moscow and to counter-attack."--Jacket

This book tells the story of the Red Army's epic struggle to drive the Germans out of Russia and back to Berlin.

The inside information on the Soviet system of war reveals how, under maximum stress, the Russian army achieved near-impossible feats in the field and the factories. All the diplomatic moves and counter-moves, including the all-important conferences at Tehran and Yalta, also come alive

Barbarossa : the Axis and the Allies( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 22 June 1941, German tanks rolled into the Soviet Union in an offensive which was to claim the lives of nearly 49 million people. Until the opening of Soviet archives, however, and the easing of their ideological grip, 'Operation Barbarossa' remained shrouded in mystery. Now, through the distinguished contributions of people like President Yeltsin's adviser, Colonel-General Dmitri Volkogonov, and the German historian Professor Klaus-Jurgen Muller, comes a book which for the first time challenges the official Soviet historiography and offers the first truly global picture of the war in Russia. From Nazi-Soviet relations at the start of the war, and the Soviet Union's response to the German attack, Barbarossa moves to the little examined subject of the invasion's aftermath. And offering dramatic new evidence on Hitler's objectives, Stalin's strategy and readiness for war, the Battle of Moscow, and Japan's wartime policy towards the Soviet Union, this book also deals with the previously taboo subjects of the personalities and politics of collaboration, and the massive human toll of the invasion
