English history, 1914-1945 by A. J. P Taylor ( Book )
139 editions published between 1959 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 3,887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book chronicles three decades largely overshadowed by war and mass unemployment. It was a period that saw in England the formation of a national government, the only genuine incidence of three-party politics, the fruition of campaigns for trades union recognition, women's suffrage, and Irish independence, and abroad withdrawal from the Gold Standard and involvement in collective security. Written in Taylor's customary provocative style, this is historical writing at its best. - ;This book begins on 4 August 1914, the day Britain entered the 'Great War', and describes the three decades of

The struggle for mastery in Europe, 1848-1918 by A. J. P Taylor ( Book )
79 editions published between 1942 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
1848 markerede for Europas befolkninger betydelige sociale forandringer, der førte fra uro til egentligt oprør. Dette fulgtes af meget betydelige nationalistiske bevægelser, der snart skulle blive brugt og misbrugt af de ny politiske magthavere. Forfatteren viser her, i denne bog fra 1984, hvorledes de tre kejserriger: Det russiske, det tyske og det Østrig-ungarske ændrede den indbyrdes balance, der atter ændrede den europæiske historie. Afhandlingen afsluttes med de politisk kaotiske forhold, der herskede efter den Første Verdenskrig

The course of German history : a survey of the development of Germany since 1815 by A. J. P Taylor ( Book )
100 editions published between 1815 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 2,298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of A. J. P. Taylor's best-known books, The Course of German History is a notoriously idiosyncratic work, written during the last days of the Second World War. Composed in his famously witty style, yet succinct to the point of sharpness, The Course of German History is one of the great historian's finest, if more controversial, accomplishments. As Taylor himself noted, 'the history of the Germans is a history of extremes. It contains everything except moderation.' He could, of course, simply be referring to his own book."--BOOK JACKET

En række artikler, foredrag og essays skrevet i 1970'erne under indtryk af den Kolde krigs trusler og afskrækkelser, bl.a. om årsager til kriges opståen og ud fra temaet, at hvis vi i fremtiden skal forsøge at undgå fremtidige krige, må vi først lære at forstå hvorfor de tidligere i historien opstod. Bogen er skrevet af den anerkendte engelske professor Michael Howard, som bl.a. er kendt dels for sin viden om sikkerhedspolitik og internationale forhold og dels som historiker og militærhistoriker. "The essays in this book illuminiate our present predicament, and deals with the past in a way that sharpens our perception of the present, and all of them carry the hallmark of Professor Howard's mind, a refusal to accept comfortable simplicities in a field where, if one does not understand the complexities, one understand nothing. The essays includes analysis of nuclear strategy today, essays on the past and writing of history, and studies of military thinkers and leaders. They are unified by a sense of inter-relationship between men and ideas, between war and social forces, and between our present situation and its roots in the past."
