Beyond nationalism : a social and political history of the Habsburg officer corps, 1848-1918 by István Deák( )

41 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last seventy years of its long and distinguished existence, the Habsburg monarchy was plagued by the forces of rising nationalism. Still, it preserved domestic peace and provided the conditions for social, economic, and cultural progress in a vast area inhabited by eleven major nationalities and almost as many confessional groups. This study investigates the social origin, education, training, code of honor, lifestyle, and political role of the Habsburg officers. Simultaneously conservative and liberal, the officer corps, originally composed mainly of noblemen, willingly co opted thousands of commoners--among them an extraordinary number of Jews. Even during World War I, the army and its officers endured, surviving the dissolution of the state in October 1918, if only by a few days. The end of the multinational Habsburg army also marked the end of confessional and ethnic tolerance in Central and East Central Europe.--Publisher description
Essays on Hitler's Europe by István Deák( )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author, considered to be one of the world's most knowledgable authorities on the Second World War. His commentary has been among the most illuminating and influential contributions to the vast discourse on the politics, history, and scholarship of the period. Here, these articles are collected for the first time. They chart changing reactions and analyses by the regimes and populations of Europe and reveal how postwar governments, hsitorians, and ordinary citizens attempt to come to terms with--or to evade--the realities of the Holocaust, war, fascism, and resistance movements. They track the acts of scoundrels and the collusion of ordinary ciitzens in the so-called Final Solution but also show how others in authority and on the street heroically opposed the evil of the day

Europe on trial : the story of collaboration, resistance, and retribution during World War II by István Deák( )

22 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and German and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Europe on Trial, acclaimed historian Istvan Deak presents the comparative history of collaboration, retribution, and resistance during World War II. Deak explores these three themes through the Western and Eastern European countries that suffered at the hands of German military occupation. The occupied countries had to face the question of whether to cooperate with their German occupiers, try to survive the war without any political involvement, or risk their lives by opposing the Nazis. Deak delves deep into the decisions that various countries and individuals made during this critical time. Following the brutal war, Deak discusses the purging of the ancient regime through lynching, acts of private vengeance, denunciation, firings, forced retirements, deprivation of citizens' rights, expulsions, mass deportations, arbitrary internment, and judicial proceedings including the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal from 1945-1946, which judged the principal German war criminals. Europe on Trial helps us to understand the many moral consequences both during and immediately following World War II

After nearly three decades of dutiful service to the Communist Party, Imre Nagy led the popular uprising against the Soviet authorities during the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. Two years later he was disgraced and executed. How did the formerly loyal Party servant become one of its most ardent critics? How did he reconcile his own beliefs with the demands of the Party for so long - and what finally drove him to take a stand? And how should we understand his legacy for the modern democracy of Hungary? This definitive biography of the Communist leader traces his life from his conventional, petty bo
