An Introduction to The thief and the dogs by Naguib Mahfouz by Molly Murphy ( Recording )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Naguib Mahfouz's The Thief and the Dogs (1961) is a multi-faceted story that is equal parts crime thriller, morality tale, and political allegory. The novel begins with career criminal Said Mahran's release from prison. He immediately sets off for the home of his ex-wife's new husband, desperate to settle a score with the man he feels betrayed him and hoping to reunite with his young daughter, Sana. Instead, she rejects him. Said next visits the posh home of his friend and mentor Rauf Ilwan, a former leader of the student resistance who has thoroughly abandoned the egalitarian principles he supported during the Revolution of 1952. Sensing Said is not willing to give up his life of crime, Rauf rebuffs him, saying, "Things are no longer what they used to be". Consumed by bitterness and motivated by a desire for revenge on the society and individuals he feels have failed him, Said's quest for vengeance carries readers from the banks of the Nile River, through the boulevards and back alleys of Cairo, to Bab al-Nasr --- a medieval gateway on the outskirts of the city. Chances for redemption and a new way of life come to him in the form of Nur, a prostitute who believes her love can transform them both, and Sheikh Ali al-Junaydi, a Sufi cleric who offers Said the opportunity to reject worldly temptation in favor of a spiritual path. Unable to accept either eros or agape, Said soon finds himself the most hunted man in Egypt --- aimless, desperate, and alone. Long known as a writer of realist fiction, 'The Thief and the Dogs' marks Mahfouz's first use of the stream-of-consciousness technique. The result is a ground-breaking work that allows the reader intimate access to the thoughts, emotions, and motivations of a man consumed by rage and hell-bent on self-destruction

Histories of the Holocaust by Dan Stone ( Book )
10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There is, then, an urgent need to synthesize and evaluate the complex historiography on the Holocaust, exploring the major themes and debates relating to it and drawing widely on the findings of a great deal of research. Concentrating on the work of the last two decades, Histories of the Holocaust examines the "Final Solution" as a European project, the decision-making process, perpetrator research, plunder and collaboration, regional studies, ghettos, camps, race science, antisemitic ideology, and recent debates concerning modernity, organization theory, colonialism, genocide studies, and cultural history. Research on victims is discussed, but Stone focuses more closely on perpetrators, reflecting trends within the historiography, as well as his own view that in order to understand Nazi genocide the emphasis must be on the culture of the perpetrators

Breeding superman : Nietzsche, race and eugenics in Edwardian and interwar Britain by Dan Stone ( Book )
8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Responses to Nazism in Britain, 1933-1939 : before war and holocaust by Dan Stone ( Book )
12 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"How was Nazism discussed in the 1930s? Studies of the period have traditionally focused on the politics of appeasement, on British and German foreign policy, or on the British Union of Fascists. Through a study of a large body of neglected literature, Responses to Nazism in Britain, 1933-1939 reveals that a far broader range of responses was made and debated. From remarkably sophisticated philosophical analyses to pro-Nazi apologias, with all shades of opinion in between, the British reading public was presented with a picture of Nazism that was, if anything, more advanced than that put forward by the government and its main supporters in the press. Combining history of ideas and cultural history, the author suggests that, before the war and the Holocaust, not a day went by when the shape and substance of British cultural and political debates were not informed by what was happening in Germany."--Jacket

The Holocaust and historical methodology ( Book )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the last two decades our empirical knowledge of the Holocaust has been vastly expanded. Yet this empirical blossoming has not been accompanied by much theoretical reflection on the historiography. This volume argues that reflection on the historical process of (re)constructing the past is as important for understanding the Holocaust-and, by extension, any past event-as is archival research. It aims to go beyond the dominant paradigm of political history and describe the emergence of methods now being used to reconstruct the past in the context of Holocaust historiography
Constructing the Holocaust : a study in historiography by Dan Stone ( Book )
8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The problem under investigation is the paradox of using tools and methods inherited from western civilization in order to write about a set of events - the Holocaust - that impugn fundamental tenets of that very civilization. This paradox, though historians of the Holocaust increasingly acknowledge it, has not been investigated in detail before. This book explains how the paradox arose and why it remains largely unchallenged. It also points to ways of overcoming it."
The Oxford handbook of postwar European history ( Book )
12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The postwar period is no longer current affairs but is becoming the recent past. As such, it is increasingly attracting the attentions of historians. Whilst the Cold War has long been a mainstay of political science and contemporary history, recent research approaches postwar Europe in many different ways, all of which are represented in the 35 chapters of this book. As well as diplomatic, political, institutional, economic, and social history, the The Oxford Handbook of Postwar European History contains chapters which approach the past through the lenses of gender, espionage, art and architecture, technology, agriculture, heritage, postcolonialism, memory, and generational change, and shows how the history of postwar Europe can be enriched by looking to disciplines such as anthropology and philosophy. The Handbook covers all of Europe, with a notable focus on Eastern Europe. Including subjects as diverse as the meaning of 'Europe' and European identity, southern Europe after dictatorship, the cultural meanings of the bomb, the 1968 student uprisings, immigration, Americanization, welfare, leisure, decolonization, the Wars of Yugoslav Succession, and coming to terms with the Nazi past, the thirty five essays in this Handbook offer an unparalleled coverage of postwar European history that offers far more than the standard Cold War framework. Readers will find self-contained, state-of-the-art analyses of major subjects, each written by acknowledged experts, as well as stimulating and novel approaches to newer topics. Combining empirical rigour and adventurous conceptual analysis, this Handbook offers in one substantial volume a guide to the numerous ways in which historians are now rewriting the history of postwar Europe"--

The Holocaust, Fascism, and memory : essays in the history of ideas by Dan Stone ( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From interpretations of the Holocaust to fascist thought and anti-fascists' responses, and the problems of memorializing this difficult past, this essay collection tackles topics which are rarely studied in conjunction. As well as historical analyses of fascist and anti-fascist thinking, Stone analyses the challenges involved in writing history in general and Holocaust historiography in particular. Following an introductory essay on 'history and its discontents', the wide-ranging chapters deal with individual thinkers of very different sorts, such as Hannah Arendt, Rolf Gardiner, Jules Monnerot and Saul Friedländer, movements such as interwar rural revivalism, the contested translation of Mein Kampf, émigré anti-fascists' writings, and the relationship between memory and history, especially with respect to atrocities like genocide. This unique collection of essays on a wide variety of topics contributes to understanding the roots and consequences of mid-twentieth-century Europe's great catastrophe."--Publisher's website
Colonialism and genocide by A. Dirk Moses ( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Previously published as a special issue of Patterns of Prejudice, this is the first book to link colonialism and genocide in a systematic way in the context of world history. It fills a significant gap in the current understanding on genocide and the Holocaust, which sees them overwhelmingly as twentieth century phenomena. This book publishes Lemkin₂s account of the genocide of the Aboriginal Tasmanians for the first time and chapters cover: the exterminatory rhetoric of racist discourses before the ₁scientific racism₂ of the mid-nineteenth century Charles Darwin₂s preoccupation with the extinction of peoples in the face of European colonialism, a reconstruction of a virtually unknown case of ₁subaltern genocide₂ global perspective on the links between modernity and the Holocaust
