Crucible of the Contemporary World - Commentary and Readings
This anthology contains 16 readings by English-language scholars that deal with military, political, diplomatic, and social aspects of World War II and its consequences for the contemporary world. The readings are grouped around seven major topics and each topic is prefaced with a substantial commentary by Professor Lee that places it in historical context. The readings consist of complete articles or integral chapters rather than abridged selections so that each author's argument can be read in its original form. The authors are: Gerhard L. Weinberg, Akira Ireye, Jan Thomasz Gross, Betram M. Gordon, Michael R. Marrus, Hugh Tinker, Roy Fraser Holland, Lloyd E. Eastman, Roberta Wohlstetter, Williamson Murray, Sheila Fitzpatrick, D'Ann Campbell, Robert M. Hathaway, Melvyn P. Leffler, A.J. Levine, and Lawrence Freedman.
Table of Contents
Integrating topics in urban development, real estate, higher education administration, urban design, and campus landscape architecture, this is the first book to explore the role of the university as developer. Accessible and clearly written, and including contributions from authorities in a wide range of related areas, it offers a rich array of case studies and analyses that clarify the important roles that universities play in the growth and development of cities. The cases describe a host of university practices, community responses, and policy initiatives surrounding university real estate development. Through a careful blending of academic analysis and practical, hands-on administrative and political information, the book charts new ground in the study of the university and the city.
