The Harper atlas of world history( )

11 editions published between 1987 and 1992 in English and held by 1,180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Full of facts, interpretation, and explanation, The Harper Atlas of World History follows the history of mankind through the ages and through-out the world. From the appearance of prehistoric Homo habilis to the Middle Eastern wars of the late twentieth century, from the building of the first Egyptian pyramids to the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger, the atlas traces the history of the world through individual cultures, political systems, and societies. Each double-page spread is devoted to a specific trend or event in world history, presented from four different viewpoints: Maps that depict a particular aspect of a society--including frontiers, conquests, natural resources, and geographic and demographic evolution--at a given moment ; Text that describes the patterns of an era or a society. A single entry includes everything from political evolution, population expansion, and prosperity to war, economic crises, and political, economic, and societal reform ; Chronology that indicates the important dates and events of the period under consideration ; Full-color illustrations portraying the art and architecture of the time, as well as photographs of the people, places, and events of the later eras."--book jacket

The Jews : history, memory, and the present by Pierre Vidal-Naquet( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pierre Vidal-Naquet, internationally celebrated author of Assassins of Memory: Essays on the Denial of the Holocaust, here takes readers on a fascinating journey through key phases of Jewish history over more than two millennia. Drawing on a vast reservoir of historical knowledge, Vidal-Naquet unravels a series of myths and ideologies that have become entangled with Jewish history over the centuries. The Jews covers subjects as deep in the past as the Jewish encounter with Hellenization in the second century B.C.E., and as current as modern-day Israeli-Palestinian relations. The Jews opens in the classical period, looking in particular at the work of Flavius Josephus, who wrote the original account of the events at Masada. Resisting the powerful currents of ideological orthodoxy, Vidal-Naquet examines what he views as Israeli nationalist distortions of the historical and archaeological record at Masada. In the promotion of an ideal of Jewish unity in the ancient world, he contends, some have chosen to ignore evidence of pluralism, civil strife, and the power of the Diaspora experience in the Jewish past. The book continues with an engaging discussion of the era of Jewish emancipation in Europe, during the French Revolution and thereafter, in which Vidal-Naquet explores the complex meanings of emancipation and assimilation. Employing previously unexamined material written by Alfred Dreyfus himself, he continues with a reevaluation of the Dreyfus affair, the episode of anti-Semitism and betrayal that shook France at the turn of the century. The Jews explores books, films, and eyewitness accounts of the Holocaust, including works by Arno Mayer, Claude Lanzmann, and Primo Levi. The book looks also at a recently published wartime journal by Vidal-Naquet's father, written in the years before he was deported. Vidal-Naquet is equally concerned with the disturbing phenomenon of Holocaust denial, pointing to the question of the gas chambers as central to refuting revisionist claims. The book closes with a personal account of growing up in Vichy France: integrating the tools of historiography with his own vivid memories of the war years, Vidal-Naquet recounts in moving detail the Occupation and the fateful day the Gestapo arrived at his home to take away his parents
