Cold War : an international history by Carole Fink( Book )

26 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in English and held by 1,953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than a bipolar conflict between two Superpowers, the decades-long Cold War had implications for the entire world. In this accessible, comprehensive retelling, Carole K. Fink provides new insights and perspectives on key events with an emphasis on people, power, and ideas, along with cultural coverage "from the Beetle to the Beatles." Cold War goes beyond US-USSR relations to explore the Cold War from an international perspective, including key events and developments in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Fink also offers a broader time line of the Cold War than any other text, charting the lead-up to the conflict from the Russian Revolution and World War II and discussing the aftermath of the Cold War since 1992. Based on the latest research and scholarship, Cold War is the consummate book on this lengthy and complex conflict for today's students and history buffs."--Back cover

1968, the world transformed( Book )

31 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"1968: The World Transformed presents a global perspective on the tumultuous events of the most crucial year in the era of the Cold War. By interpreting 1968 as a transnational phenomenon, authors from Europe and the United States explain why the crises of 1968 erupted almost simultaneously throughout the world. Together, the eighteen chapters provide an interdisciplinary and comparative approach to the rise and fall of protest movements worldwide. The book represents an effort to integrate international relations, the role of the media, and the cross-cultural exchange of people and ideas into the history of 1968. That year emerges as a global phenomenon because of the linkages between domestic and international affairs, the powerful influence of the media, the networks of communication among activists, and the shared opposition to the domestic and international status quo in the name of freedom and self-determination."--Jacket

28 editions published between 2004 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the Cold War ended between 1989 and 1991, statesmen and scholars reached back to the period after World War I when the victors devised minority treaties for the new and expanded states of Eastern Europe. This is the first study of the entire period between 1878 and 1938, when the Great Powers established a system of external supervision to reduce the threats in Europe's most volatile regions of irredentism, persecution, and uncontrolled waves of westward migration
Genoa, Rapallo, and European reconstruction in 1922 by Carole Fink( Book )

23 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and Italian and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the largest twentieth-century summit meetings, the Genoa Conference of 1922, was a notable failure, due to the gulf between the Allies and Germany, between the West and Soviet Russia, and among the World War I victors and their small allies. This book, a unique international collaboration, presents various perspectives on the Genoa Conference: its leadership, goals, and outcome. The authors present new findings on such questions as the sensational Rapallo Treaty between Germany and Russia; the strategy of the small neutral powers; and the policy of the United States toward European debts. Readers will find contrasting as well as complementary views in this volume
Ostpolitik, 1969-1974 : European and global responses( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent studies of the Cold War transcend a narrow focus on four decades of superpower rivalry, recognizing that leaders and governments outside of Washington and Moscow also exerted political, economic, and moral influence well beyond their own borders. One striking example was the Ostpolitik of Chancellor Willy Brandt, which not only redefined Germany's relation with its Nazi past but also altered the global environment of the Cold War." "This book examines the years 1969 to 1974, when Brandt broke the Cold War stalemate in Europe by assuming responsibility for the crimes of the Third Reich and by formally renouncing several major West German claims, while also launching an assertive policy toward his communist neighbors and conducting a deft balancing act between East and West. Not everyone then, or now, applauds the ethos and practice of Ostpolitik, but no one can deny its impact on German, European, and world history."--Jacket
West Germany and Israel : foreign relations, domestic politics, and the Cold War, 1965-1974 by Carole Fink( Book )

10 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the late 1960s, West Germany and Israel were moving in almost opposite diplomatic directions in a political environment dominated by the Cold War. The Federal Republic launched ambitious policies to reconcile with its Iron Curtain neighbors, expand its influence in the Arab world, and promote West European interests vis-à-vis the United States. By contrast, Israel, unable to obtain peace with the Arabs after its 1967 military victory and threatened by Palestinian terrorism, became increasingly dependent upon the United States, estranged from the USSR and Western Europe, and isolated from the Third World. Nonetheless, the two countries remained connected by shared security concerns, personal bonds, and recurrent evocations of the German-Jewish past. Drawing upon newly-available sources covering the first decade of the countries' formal diplomatic ties, Carole Fink reveals the underlying issues that shaped these two countries' fraught relationship and sets their foreign and domestic policies in a global context"--

The Jews and minority rights during and after World War 1 by Carole Fink( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses how the Polish Minority Treaty that emerged from the Paris Peace Conference failed to guarantee national rights to the Jews in the wake of Polish pogroms against Jews at the end of World War I. Jewish diplomacy was too disunited and the victorious Allies too reluctant to guarantee minorities the right to appeal against their governments to a supernational body (the League of Nations). Furthermore, resurrected Poland had no intention of limiting its nationalism to grant national rights to Jews or others
