Histories of the Holocaust by Dan Stone( )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 1,895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Holocaust is one of the most intensively studied phenomena in modern history. The volume of writing that fuels the numerous debates about it is overwhelming in quantity and diversity. Even those who have dedicated their professional lives to understanding the Holocaust cannot assimilate it all
Breeding superman : Nietzsche, race and eugenics in Edwardian and interwar Britain by Dan Stone( )

16 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this text, Dan Stone challenges the traditional view held by many political historians that British fascism was nothing more than a pale imitation of its continental counterparts, and something of an irrelevance in British political history
The liberation of the camps : the end of the Holocaust and its aftermath by Dan Stone( )

19 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in English and Italian and held by 1,222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seventy years have passed since the tortured inmates of Hitler's concentration and extermination camps were liberated. When the horror of the atrocities came fully to light, it was easy for others to imagine the joyful relief of freed prisoners. Yet for those who had survived the unimaginable, the experience of liberation was a slow, grueling journey back to life. In this unprecedented inquiry into the days, months, and years following the arrival of Allied forces at the Nazi camps, a foremost historian of the Holocaust draws on archival sources and especially on eyewitness testimonies to reveal the complex challenges liberated victims faced and the daunting tasks their liberators undertook to help them reclaim their shattered lives. Historian Dan Stone focuses on the survivors--their feelings of guilt, exhaustion, fear, shame for having survived, and devastating grief for lost family members; their immense medical problems; and their later demands to be released from Displaced Persons camps and resettled in countries of their own choosing. Stone also tracks the efforts of British, American, Canadian, and Russian liberators as they contended with survivors' immediate needs, then grappled with longer-term issues that shaped the postwar world and ushered in the first chill of the Cold War years ahead."--
Goodbye to all that? : the story of Europe since 1945 by Dan Stone( )

22 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shows how the anti-fascist consensus prevalent throughout Europe following World War II has been crumbling since the 1970s and how globalization, deregulation, the erosion of social-democratic welfare capitalism in the West, and the collapse of the Communist alternative in the East are leading to a social divisive, politically dangerous rise of fascism that could threaten the peace of Europe
The Holocaust and historical methodology( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 1,056 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
The historiography of genocide by Dan Stone( Book )

30 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Dan Stone provides an indispensable guide to the development of the emerging discipline of genocide studies and an assessment of the historical literature pertaining to genocides
The historiography of the Holocaust by Dan Stone( Book )

31 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays by leading scholars in their fields provides a comprehensive survey of Holocaust historiography. Covering both long-established historical disputes as well as research questions and methodologies that have developed during the massive growth in Holocaust studies, this collection should be of benefit to students and scholars alike
Hannah Arendt and the uses of history : imperialism, nation, race, and genocide by Richard H King( )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hannah Arendt first argued the continuities between the age of European imperialism and the age of fascism in Europe in 'The Origins of Totalitarianism'. This text uses Arendt's insights as a starting point for further investigations into the ways in which race, imperialism, slavery and genocide are linked
The Oxford handbook of postwar European history by Dan Stone( Book )

25 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 478 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"--
Responses to Nazism in Britain, 1933-1939 : before war and holocaust by Dan Stone( Book )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 399 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
Concentration camps : a short history by Dan Stone( Book )

12 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Dan Stone gives a global history of concentration camps, and shows that it is not only 'mad dictators' who have set up camps, but instead all varieties of states, including liberal democracies, that have made use of them. Setting concentration camps against the longer history of incarceration, he explains how the ability of the modern state to control populations led to the creation of this extreme institution. Looking at their emergence and spread around the world, Stone argues that concentration camps serve the purpose, from the point of view of the state in crisis, of removing a section of the population that is perceived to be threatening, traitorous, or diseased. Drawing on contemporary accounts of camps, as well as the philosophical literature surrounding them, Stone considers the story camps tell us about the nature of the modern world as well as about specific regimes
Constructing the Holocaust : a study in historiography by Dan Stone( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 258 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 Holocaust, Fascism, and memory : essays in the history of ideas by Dan Stone( Book )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 243 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
Theoretical interpretations of the holocaust( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book aims to show the many resources at our disposal for grappling with the Holocaust as the darkest occurrence of the twentieth century. These wide-ranging studies on philosophy, history, and literature address the way the Holocaust had led to the reconceptualization of the humanities. The scholarly approaches of Pierre Klossowski, Georges Bataille, and Maurice Blanchot are examined critically, and the volume explores such poignant topics as violence, evil, and monuments
History, memory, and mass atrocity : essays on the Holocaust and genocide by Dan Stone( Book )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book's main theme is the interpretation of the Holocaust and genocide in historiography, philosophy and the contemporary culture of commemoration. Running through the essays is an attempt to understand the Holocaust's relationship to 'modernity'; the need to find ways of understanding genocide through apparently 'non-rational' forms of explanation (especially derived from anthropology); and the desirability of relating the Holocaust to other instances of genocide."--BOOK JACKET
Concentration camps : a very short introduction by Dan Stone( Book )

14 editions published in 2019 in English and Spanish and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concentration camps are a relatively new invention, a recurring feature of twentieth century warfare, and one that is important to the modern global consciousness and identity. Although the most famous concentration camps are those under the Nazis, the use of concentration camps originated several decades before the Third Reich, in the Philippines and in the Boer War, and they have been used again in numerous locations, not least during the genocides in Bosnia and Rwanda. Over the course of the twentieth century they have become defining symbols of humankind's lowest point and basest acts. This book gives a global history of concentration camps, and shows that it is not only mad dictators who have set up camps, but instead all varieties of states, including liberal democracies, that have made use of them. Setting concentration camps against the longer history of incarceration, this book explains how the ability of the modern state to control populations led to the creation of this extreme institution. Looking at their emergence and spread around the world, Stone argues that concentration camps serve the purpose, from the point of view of the state in crisis, of removing a section of the population that is perceived to be threatening, traitorous, or diseased. Drawing on contemporary accounts of camps, as well as the philosophical literature surrounding them, Stone considers the story camps tell us about the nature of the modern world as well as about specific regimes
Fascism, Nazism and the Holocaust : challenging histories by Dan Stone( )

8 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book contains essays by distinguished scholar Professor Dan Stone on Fascism, Nazism and the Holocaust. It examines issues such as race science and the racial state, Nazi race ideology, slave labour, concentration camps, British reaction to the rise of Nazism and the Holocaust, the search for missing persons in the chaos of postwar Europe, and the postwar revival of fascism. Though mainly focused on Nazi Germany, it also makes comparisons with other fascist movements and regimes in Romania and elsewhere. This book will be of great interest to scholars and students of antisemitism, fascism, Nazism, World War II, genocide studies and the Holocaust"--
Colonialism and genocide by A. Dirk Moses( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 147 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
Beyond camps and forced labour : proceedings of the Sixth International Conference by Beyond camps and forced labour (Conference)( )

7 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a selection of the newest research on themes amplified by the sixth annual Beyond Camps and Forced Labour conference on the post-Holocaust period, including 'displaced persons', reception and resettlement, exiles and refugees, trials and justice, reparation and restitution, and memory and testimony. The chapters highlight new, transnational approaches and findings based on underused and newly opened archives, including compensation files of the British government; on historical actors often on the periphery within English-language historiography, including Romanian and Hungarian survivors; and new approaches such as the spatial history of Drancy, as well as geographies that have undergone less scrutiny, for example, Tehran, Chile, Mexico and Cyprus. This volume represents the vibrant and varied state of research on the aftermath of the Holocaust
Aurel Kolnais "Der Krieg gegen den Westen" eine Debatte by Wolfgang Bialas( )

3 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in German and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diskutiert wird die Stellung von Kolnais Buch »Der Krieg gegen den Westen« im Kontext zeitgenössischer Auseinandersetzungen mit dem Nationalsozialismus. Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei Kolnais Sicht auf den Nationalsozialismus als existenzielle Bedrohung der westlichen Gesellschaft und ihres Wertesystems, gegenüber der er die vom Bolschewismus ausgehende Gefahr für die bürgerliche Gesellschaft vernachlässigte. Neben Rassenideologie, Antisemitismus und Religion bilden Kolnais politische Philosophie und seine Moralphilosophie als theoretischer Kontext seiner Nazismusanalyse einen besonderen Schwerpunkt. This book discusses the position of Aurel Kolnai's book “Der Krieg gegen den Westen” (The War against the West) in the context of contemporary debates on Nazism. It focuses on Kolnai's view of Nazism as a fundamental threat to the Western society and its value systems, while neglecting the emerging dangers of Bolshevism for the middle class. The book also discusses racial ideology, anti-Semitism and religion, Kolnai's political philosophy and his moral philosophy form the theoretical context of Bialias' analysis of Nazism
