Gregor Strasser and the rise of Nazism by Peter D Stachura( Book )

15 editions published between 1983 and 2016 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most influential and substantial leader, after Hitler, in the pre-1933 National Socialist Party was Gregor Strasser. This book (originally published in 1983 but as yet not superseded) is a comprehensive and scholarly assessment of Strasser's significant and ultimately tragic career, based largely on previously unpublished German archival material. Strasser's importance as a Nazi propagandist, organiser, ideologue and spokesman is examined and the analysis and interpretation which follow are fundamentally revisionist in that many of the accepted ideas about Strasser's career are challenged

Poland in the twentieth century by Peter D Stachura( Book )

20 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book comprises a selection of original and revised essays by Peter Stachura on some of the most important and sensitive themes in modern Polish history, from around 1900 until the present day. While maintaining a sense of judicious proportion throughout, the work does not avoid controversy. It offers a series of stimulating and challenging reassessments of, for example, the overall development of the Second Republic (1918-39), the role of General Wladyslaw Sikorski, Polish-Jewish relations before and after 1939, the emergence of the Polish community in postwar Scotland, and contemporary Polish nationalism. By analysing Poland's many triumphs and tribulations this century with an informed and searching eye, the book achieves a high level of intellectual coherence and a nuanced historical perspective. The overall result is a major contribution to a field of study which has gained even more significance and scholarly momentum since the collapse of communism in Poland in 1989/90
