The major international treaties, 1914-1973; a history and guide with texts by J. A. S Grenville( Book )

26 editions published between 1974 and 1975 in English and held by 1,225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The texts are placed in a historical framework to clarify their relation to each other, and are supplemented by a description of the circumstances leading to their conclusion. Each group of treaties is prefaced by an introductory chapter which provides a short history and analysis of world events linked to the actual texts of the main treaties. The structure and development of international organizations, from the League of Nations to the enlarged European Economic Community, are also included. The texts are edited only to the extent of cutting out extraneous legal and other formal matter; where necessary, clauses are summarized in order to focus attention on the main provisions. This is a uniquely comprehensive guide to diplomatic history since the beginning of the First World War. Bridging law, politics, and history, it is indispensable to students of the twentieth century.--Adapted from dust jacket

The Jews and Germans in Hamburg : the destruction of a civilization 1790-1945 by J. A. S Grenville( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Toward the end of the 19th century, Hamburg Jews were deeply embedded within the society of the city, proud of its liberal spirit; they contributed greatly to its wealth and considered themselves Germans. Relates the story of the Jewish community, interspersed with stories of many Jewish and mixed families, as well as of some non-Jewish bystanders. Although even in pre-1914 Hamburg there were barriers between Jews and Christians on the private level, and anti-Jewish prejudices persisted, it was the growing common preoccupation with race and eugenics that spelled real danger for the Jews. In Hamburg of 1919-32 the Nazis were still an insignificant force, but it did not need Nazis to establish growing anti-Jewish sentiments. Describes Nazi policies toward the Jews of Hamburg, the "Kristallnacht" pogrom, concentration of the city's Jews in "Jewish houses", and then the deportations to Minsk, Riga, and Theresienstadt in 1941-42, as well as Jewish reactions to all of these. 7,500 Jews were in Hamburg in July 1941; only 674 Jews, 631 of them in mixed marriages, remained on 30 April 1945. Believes that the Germans knew much about the mass killing of Jews in the "East", in particular because many business people of Hamburg visited the "East" and could see it. The Holocaust of the Hamburg Jews was facilitated by the overall indifference of the city's population. It was not just a Jewish civilization that the Nazis destroyed in Germany, but German civilization, of which it was a part

This program describes the industrialization of society and its effects. As industrialization caused the replacement of skilled craftsmen by factory laborers, cities around the world had to deal with the effects of increasing populations and unfair labor practices. At the same time, dividends of progress such as labor-saving machines, affordable luxuries, and leisure time resulted in a higher standard of living for many. This program presents the challenges and opportunities of urban centers during the boom days of capitalism and the emergence of socialist economies, describing the slow and uneven transition from exploitation to equity, and from sweatshop survival to upward mobility
