Historical atlas of East Central Europe by Paul R Magocsi( )

35 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and held by 1,948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first time in any language, here is an atlas that covers all of East Central Europe, from the early fifth century through 1992. The atlas encompasses the countries of Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Yugoslavia, Macedonia, Albania, Bulgaria, and Greece. Also included are the eastern part of Germany (historic Mecklenburg, Brandenburg, Prussia, Saxony, and Lusatia), Bavaria, Austria, northeastern Italy (historic Venetia), the lands of historic Poland-Lithuania (present-day Lithuania, Belarus, and Ukraine up to the Dnieper River), Moldova, and western Turkey. The organization of the atlas is basically chronological. Eighty-nine full-color maps and accompanying text constitute a history of the region. Several maps illustrate the changing political and administrative boundaries of the region at key historical dates and are interspersed with other maps that focus on similar changes within individual countries or specific areas. Thematic maps deal with such subjects as the economy, ecclesiastical structures, education and culture, demography and ethnicity, and military affairs. Numerous tables and lists provide related statistical and demographic material. Especially useful is the detailed index, which includes thousands of variant place names. The Historical Atlas of East Central Europe will be invaluable to scholars, diplomats, journalists, students, and general readers who wish to have a fuller understanding of this critical area, with its many peoples, languages, and continued political upheaval

Historical atlas of Canada by D. G. G Kerr( )

28 editions published between 1985 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emergence in the nineteenth century of a new political and territorial entity - Canada - is dramatically portrayed in this book. Through breathtaking cartography it vividly captures the great economic and social events that made possible the successful birth of a huge new country. The Land Transformed reveals how a thinly populated and economically limited group of colonies in 1800 came together to become the Canada of the 1890s. The profound revolution was the transformation of the land: forest and grassland gave way to farmland, native populations were moved onto reservations, railways and telegraph tied together widely separated communities; urban commercial centres grew. At the end of the century Canada was recognizable as one of the world's major countries, stretching across a continent, comfortably at home in the world of railways, factories, and well-developed agriculture. The first part of the volume, 'Extending the Frontier: Settlement to Mid-Century, ' describes the growth of the population and the economy in the first half of the century. Maps, graphs, charts, and paintings are used with imagination and clarity to portray the spread of settlement, based on immigration and an accelerated use of resources, the most important of which was land. By the 1850s a dominant agriculture was joined to a productive timber trade as the country's engine of growth. Part II, 'Building a Nation, ' covers the country's 'coming of age.' Between the 1850s and the 1890s political union was achieved, conomic growth continued, and a recognizable Canadian society emerged. These same developments left in their wake a declining and dispersed indigenous population. A series of treaties moved Indian populations to reserves of land in a massive rearrangement of native territory that set the stage for continuing cultural conflict. The nineteenth century witnessed the culmination of four centuries of European engagement in North America. Momentous events of the time are captured in this volume, which provides a splendid visual record of the drama of nation building and the roots of the diverse nation we know today

Galicia : a historical survey and bibliographic guide by Paul R Magocsi( Book )

22 editions published between 1983 and 2016 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galicia, an eastern European region that has been ruled by Poland, Austria, and the USSR at various times, has played an important and often crucial role in the Ukrainian historical development. This is the first comprehensive bibliographic guide to its history. The over-all arrangement is chronological and within that by theme. The book emphasizes political, socioeconomic, literary, linguistic, and archeological developments as they are recorded in fourteen languages. It contains more than 3000 references, 1000 notes, a detailed thematic and name of index, and six maps which trace the historical development of Galicia. Although Ukrainians have traditionally made up the largest part of Galicia's population, substantial minority populations of Poles, Germans, Armenians, Karaites, and most especially Jews have lived in the region at various times. The extensive literature on Galicia's Jews is brought together in this volume for the first time. This volume is published in association with the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute and the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies. It won the 1982 Cenko Prize for the best work published in Ukrainian bibliography

Encyclopedia of Canada's peoples( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All peoples living in Canada deserve to have a voice in its history. How and why did they come to Canada? Where did the immigrants and their descendants settle? What kinds of lives did they build for themselves and how did they contribute to the country as a whole? These are the sorts of questions addressed in the Encyclopedia of Canada's Peoples."--BOOK JACKET. "Whether a First Nation, founding people, or subsequent arrival, all of Canada's peoples are described in 119 group entries that range from Acadians to Ukrainians, Hyderabadis to Vietnamese. In each instance an entry covers the origin of the group, the process of migration, arrival and settlement, economic and community life, family and kinship patterns, language and culture, education, religion, politics, intergroup relations, and the dynamics of group maintenance. Entries are cross-referenced and include statistical information and suggestions for further reading. Several thematic essays illuminate the complex issues related to immigration, acculturation, multiculturalism, and Canadian culture and identity."--Jacket
Encyclopedia of Rusyn history and culture by I. I Pop( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Carpatho-Rusyns are a central European people, numbering approximately 1.2 million, who live within the borders of five states: Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania, and Hungary. They have never had a state of their own. Disregarded and suppressed by most governments that ruled over them in the past, the Rusyn people have had to fight to retain their identity, culture, and language. This work is an attempt to redress the loss of historical memory and knowledge caused by decades of repression by investigating and explaining the historical past and culture of Rusyns in all countries where they live, including immigrant communities in the United States, Canada, and Yugoslavia." "The encyclopedia contains over 1,000 alphabetically arranged entries in areas such as individuals, organizations, political parties, periodicals, historical terms, geographic regions, historical events, and on themes such as architecture, archeology, cinema, ethnography, geography and economy, language, and literature. The first encyclopedic work on Rusyns to appear in English, this book will be an indispensable resource for European area and Slavic studies specialists, and for general readers interested in international relations and nationalism."--BOOK JACKET

This blessed land : Crimea and the Crimean Tatars by Paul R Magocsi( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A virtual island in the Black Sea, Crimea is connected to the European continent by only a narrow sliver of land. For centuries it was part of the Ottoman and Russian empires, then the Soviet Union, and today independent Ukraine. But its history goes back even farther, as is evident from a landscape filled with the remnants of cultures and peoples: classical Greeks, Goths, Byzantines, Mongols, imperial Russians, and, most importantly, Crimean Tatars

With their backs to the mountains : a history of Carpathian Rus' and Carpatho-Rusyns by Paul R Magocsi( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a history of a stateless people, the Carpatho-Rusyns, and their historic homeland, Carpathian Rus', located in the heart of central Europe. At the present, when it is fashionable to speak of nationalities as 'imagined communities' or as transnational constructs 'created' by intellectuals\elites who may live in the historic 'national' homeland or in the diaspora, Carpatho-Rusyns provide an ideal example of a people made--or some would say still being made--before our very eyes. The book traces the evolution of Carpathian Rus' from earliest pre-historic times to the present and the complex manner in which a distinct Carpatho-Rusyn people, since the mid-nineteenth century, came into being, disappeared, and then re-appeared in the wake of the revolutions of 1989 and the collapse of Communist rule in central and eastern Europe. The book, while based on the author's four decades of erudition on the subject, eschews scholarly jargon and is written in an accessible reader-friendly style"--Provided by publisher
