A world at total war : global conflict and the politics of destruction, 1937-1945 by Roger Chickering( )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents the results of a fifth and final conference on the history of total war. It is devoted to the Second World War, which many scholars regard as the paradigmatic instance of total war. In considering the validity of this proposition, the authors address a broad range of analytical problems that this vast conflict posed in its European and Asian theaters. They analyze modes of combat, war aims, the mobilization of economies and societies, occupation regimes, the vulnerability of noncombatants, and the legal and moral issues raised by the industrialized warfare of the mid-twentieth century. The volume will be of interest to all students of war and society in the modern era."--Jacket
1968, the world transformed( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 761 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
Nature and power : a global history of the environment by Joachim Radkau( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States and Germany in the era of the Cold War, 1945-1990 : a handbook by Philipp Gassert( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The close association between the United States and the Federal Republic of Germany was a key element in the international order of the Cold War era. No country had as wide-reaching or as profound an impact on the western portion of divided Germany as the United States. No country better exemplified the East-West conflict in American thinking than Germany. The United States and Germany in the Era of the Cold War examines all facets of German-American relations and interaction in the decades from the defeat of the Third Reich to Germany's reunification in 1990. In addition to its comprehensive treatment of US-West German political, economic, social, and cultural ties, The United States and Germany in the Era of the Cold War provides an overview of the more limited dealings between the US and the communist German Democratic Republic." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/description/cam041/2003060607.html
Medieval concepts of the past : ritual, memory, historiography( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Medieval Concepts of the Past shows how the history of the Middle Ages is reshaped by leading medieval historians in Germany and the United States in the light of cultural and social-scientific investigations into ritual, language and memory. These two national traditions of medieval scholarship, which have been largely separated over the course of the twentieth century, are drawing closer together through a common interest in issues of social science and linguistic theory as applied to the representation of the past. This book marks a step in the reconvergence of these two historiographical traditions
An Interrupted past : German-speaking refugee historians in the United States after 1933 by Hartmut Lehmann( Book )

9 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in English and German and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in An Interrupted Past describe the fate of those German-speaking historians who fled from Nazi Europe to the United States. Their story is set into several contexts: the traditional relationship between German and American historiography, the evolution of the German historical profession in the twentieth century, the onset of Nazi persecution after 1933, the special situation in Austria, and the difficulty of settling the refugees in their new homeland. In addition to articles on prominent scholars, there are accounts of the group as a whole, including information on more than ninety individuals, and of their family lives. An Interrupted Past is set in one of the darkest periods in human history, a time of political catastrophe and personal suffering. Yet the lives recorded here also illustrate people's capacity to survive, adjust, and create under difficult circumstances

6 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bridging the Atlantic discusses comparative developments in modern European and American history. Including case studies on British, German, and US history since the eighteenth century, it seeks to establish an integrated vision of Atlantic history. The contributions by European and American historians challenge the concept of American exceptionalism and present a vivid example of the ongoing debate between American and European historians on the structure and nature of European-American relations
German influences on education in the United States to 1917 by Henry Geitz( Book )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book represents the result of recent historical research by German and American scholars on German influences on education in the United States during the nineteenth century. The authors deal with all aspects of education, from kindergarten through primary and secondary education to universities. In analyzing German educational influences on the United States, the essays are concerned with reports of American visitors to Germany, as well as with accounts and activities of German educators in the United States. The book shows that in the context of an immigrant culture, the question of influence needs to be considered in an interdisciplinary setting. At the same time, the account recognizes that both Germany and the United States were mutually affected by the development and progress of their relevant educational theories and practices
Institutions of public memory : the legacies of German and American politicians( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On a rainy day in November 2004, William Jefferson Clinton, convalescing from heart surgery, assembled two former presidents, the current incumbent, and several foreign statesmen and celebrities to inaugurate the twelfth presidential library, his library in Little Rock, Arkansas. It is yet another library that aspires to superlatives, certainly in regard to the quantity of its holdings, as an architectural statement, and soon, perhaps, in terms of the number of visitors.1 The opening of a new presidential library has become a showy event of major news value akin to presidential inaugurations and state funerals. It constitutes a display of power, prestige, and pride in the most visible of American political institutions but also another step in the former chief executive's battle to actively shape his presidential legacy. Yet the clamor surrounding new presidential libraries today (soon to be repeated with an edifice for George W. Bush in Texas)the fund-raising efforts, the refusal of some universities to host a library on their campus, or, conversely, the competition among communities to become presidential library sites in the hope of development fees and tourist dollars spurring economic growthhas little to do with the comparatively modest origins of the presidential library idea
Environmental histories of the Cold War by John Robert McNeill( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Environmental Histories of the Cold War explores the links between the Cold War and the global environment, ranging from the environmental impacts of nuclear weapons to the political repercussions of environmentalism. Environmental change accelerated sharply during the Cold War years, and so did environmentalism as both a popular movement and a scientific preoccupation. Most Cold War history entirely overlooks this rise of environmentalism and the crescendo of environmental change. These historical subjects were not only simultaneous but also linked together in ways both straightforward and surprising. The contributors to this book present these connected issues as a global phenomenon, with chapters concerning China, the USSR, Europe, North America, Oceania, and elsewhere. The role of experts as agents and advocates of using the environment as a weapon in the Cold War or, contrastingly, of preventing environmental damage resulting from Cold War politics is also given broad attention."
