A savage war of peace : Algeria, 1954-1962 by Alistair Horne ( Book )
44 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in English and held by 2,541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Algerian War lasted from 1954 to 1962. It brought down six French governments, led to the collapse of the Fourth Republic, returned de Gaulle to power, and came close to provoking a civil war on French soil. More than a million Muslim Algerians died in the conflict and as many European settlers were driven into exile. Above all, the war was marked by an unholy marriage of revolutionary terror and repressive torture. Nearly a half century has passed since this savagely fought war ended in Algeria's independence, and yet'as Alistair Horne argues in his new preface to his now-classic work of history'its repercussions continue to be felt not only in Algeria and France, but throughout the world. Indeed from today's vantage point the Algerian War looks like a full-dress rehearsal for the sort of amorphous struggle that convulsed the Balkans in the 1990s and that now ravages the Middle East, from Beirut to Baghdad'struggles in which questions of religion, nationalism, imperialism, and terrorism take on a new and increasingly lethal intensity. A Savage War of Peace is the definitive history of the Algerian War, a book that brings that terrible and complicated struggle to life with intelligence, assurance, and unflagging momentum. It is essential reading for our own violent times as well as a lasting monument to the historian's art

Kissinger : 1973, the crucial year by Alistair Horne ( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
1973 should have been Kissinger's year of triumph--a time to bask in his hard-won achievements and build on his successes. Kissinger's strategy of opening the door to China and détente with the Soviet Union had been judged an overwhelming success. After furthering his policy of realpolitik through backchannel diplomacy during Nixon's first term, Kissinger was finally awarded the plum position of Secretary of State. But then major events shattered whatever peace and calm America had attained: defeat in Vietnam; then Watergate, culminating in Nixon's resignation; war in the Middle East; and finally an economic collapse caused by the Arab oil embargo. Rather than progressing on all fronts, as he had expected, Kissinger would confront some of the most critical policy challenges of his career. Based on full access to the subject and his papers, this is an intimate portrait of a man, a country, and a presidency at a critical point.--From publisher description
