  • Mao's Great Famine

    The History of China's Most Devestating Catastrophe 1958-62, 1st Edition

    By John Wagner Givens

    The power of Frank Dikötter's ground-breaking work on the disaster that followed China's attempted ‘Great Leap Forward’ lies not in the detail of his evidence (though that shows that Mao's fumbled attempt at rapid industrialization probably cost 45 million Chinese lives). It stems from the…

  • Nations and Nationalism

    1st Edition

    By Dale J Stahl

  • The Black Jacobins

    1st Edition

    By Nick Broten

    Today we take it for granted that history is much more than the story of great men and the elites from which they spring. Other forms of history – the histories of gender, class, rebellion and nonconformity – add much-needed context and color to our understanding of the past. But this has not…

  • Ordinary Men

    Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland, 1st Edition

    By Tom Stammers, James Chappel

    Of all the controversies facing historians today, few are more divisive or more important than the question of how the Holocaust was possible. What led thousands of Germans – many of them middle-aged reservists with, apparently, little Nazi zeal – to willingly commit acts of genocide? Was it…

  • The Global Cold War

    Third World Interventions And The Making Of Our Times, 1st Edition

    By Patrick Glenn, Bryan Gibson

    For those who lived through the Cold War period, and for many of the historians who study it, it seemed self-evident that the critical incidents that determined its course took place in the northern hemisphere, specifically in the face-off between NATO and the Warsaw Pact in Europe.

  • The History of the Peloponnesian War

    1st Edition

    By Mark Fisher

    Few works can claim to form the foundation stones of one entire academic discipline, let alone two, but Thucydides's celebrated History of the Peloponnesian War is not only one of the first great works of history, but also the departure point from which the modern discipline of international…
