Media and the making of modern Germany : mass communications, society, and politics from the Empire to the Third Reich by Corey Ross( )

24 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few developments in the industrial era have had a greater impact on everyday social life than the explosion of the mass media and commercial entertainments, and none has exerted a more profound influence on the nature of modern politics. Nowhere in Europe were the tensions and controversies surrounding the rise of mass culture more politically charged than in Germany - debates that played fatefully into the hands of the radical right. Corey Ross provides the first general account of the expansion of the mass media in Germany up to the Second World War, examining how the rise of film, radio, recorded music, popular press, and advertising fitted into the wider development of social, political, and cultural life." --Résumé de l'éditeur

Constructing socialism at the grass-roots : the transformation of East Germany, 1945-65 by Corey Ross( Book )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on extensive archival research and utilizing the insights of other studies, this book explores the building of socialism in East Germany, not from the standard perspective of the party and state authorities, but, rather, from focusing on the effects this had at the grass-roots, where patterns of popular opinion, social and cultural continuities from the pre-communist past and the divided loyalties of local functionaries played a crucial role in shaping the face of 'real-existing socialism'."--Jacket
Ecology and power in the age of empire : Europe and the transformation of the tropical world by Corey Ross( Book )

17 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecology and Power in the Age of Empire provides the first wide-ranging environmental history of the heyday of European imperialism, from the late nineteenth century to the end of the colonial era. It focuses on the ecological dimensions of the explosive growth of tropical commodity production, global trade, and modern resource management-transformations that still visibly shape our world today--and how they were related to broader social, cultural, and political developments in Europe's colonies. Covering the overseas empires of all the major European powers, Corey Ross argues that tropical environments were not merely a stage on which conquest and subjugation took place, but were an essential part of the colonial project, profoundly shaping the imperial enterprise even as they were shaped by it. The story he tells is not only about the complexities of human experience, but also about people's relationship with the ecosystems in which they were themselves embedded: the soil, water, plants, and animals that were likewise a part of Europe's empire
Mass media, culture and society in twentieth-century Germany( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the first wide-ranging study of the rise of the mass media in Germany from a social and cultural-historical perspective. Going far beyond the conventional focus on the organizational structures or aesthetic content of the media, it investigates the impact they have had on twentieth-century German society under widely varying political systems, and how in turn the media and their uses were shaped by the wider social, political and cultural context
Pleasure and power in Nazi Germany( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although we associate the Third Reich above all with suffering, pain, and fear, pleasure played a central role in its social and cultural dynamics. This book explores the relationship between the rationing of pleasures as a means of political stabilization and the pressure on the Nazi regime to cater to popular cultural expectations"--
