  1. Book ImageThe Semblance of Peace: The Political Settlement After the Second World War

    Anthony Nicholls, John W. Wheeler-Bennett

    “Sir John Wheeler-Bennett has already made distinguished contributions to the study of the earlier illusion, known as appeasement. With his new collaborator, he has made an equally distinguished study of the later illusion . . .” —[London] Times Literary SupplementMore

  5. Book ImageRevolution as Theatre

    Robert Brustein

    Revolution as Theatre reflects the deep concern of a brilliant and disciplined mind confronted with the spectre of "clenched minds and clenched fists."More

  6. Book ImageThe Student Revolution: A Global Confrontation

    Joseph A. Califano, Jr.

    In early 1969 Joseph A. Califano, Jr., President Johnson's top domestic assistant, traveled on a Ford Foundation grant to London, Paris, Bonn, Berlin, Rome, Israel, Kenya, Tanzania, India, and Japan to look at the problem of student unrest abroad. This book is not only a report on those problems and an analysis of the common elements of that unrest--it also reflects on the lessons of the author's experience in the United States.More

  7. Book ImageThe Communist Collapse in Indonesia

    Arnold C. Brackman

    This book is the first analysis-in-depth of the collapse of the Indonesian Communist movement in 1965 within the context of world affairs. The murder of the Indonesian general staff and the mass murders that followed are sculptured in fascinating detail against the background of the mephitic, torchlight era of the Sukarno regime at that time.More

  8. Book ImageThe Great Bull Market: Wall Street in the 1920s

    Robert Sobel

    Wall Street and the stock market were major symbols of the 1920s, and the great crash was considered the end of that era. It is surprising, therefore, that little intensive study has been given to the bull market of the period.More

    Harris Gaylord Warren

    “The pertinent sources and literature consulted are prodigious and the judgments are those of the expert and objective historian.” —Wilfred E. BinkleyMore

  11. Book ImageWith MacArthur in Japan: A Personal History of the Occupation

    William Sebald, Russell Brines

    The American Occupation of Japan was perhaps one of the most fateful periods in the history of our foreign relations. From his position as senior civilian in the Occupation hierarchy, Ambassador Sebald had a unique opportunity to observe the implementation of policy by MacArthur and his staff and the sometimes acrimonious struggle between civilian, military, and Japanese elements.More

  12. Book ImageStep by Step

    Douglas Dowd, Mary Nichols, Nick Lawrence

    Step by Step is not simply one more book about civil rights, designed to underscore the repression of the American Negro and relate episodically what some have done about it, even though the book does serve both those functions to a degree. This book is unique in that its aim is to instruct those who would become involved in the civil rights struggle--instruct them in how to develop and work out a project.More

  13. Book ImageThe Truman-MacArthur Controversy and the Korean War

    John W. Spanier

    "The order not to bomb the Yalu bridges was the most indefensible and ill-conceived decision ever forced on a field commander in our nation's history....I will always believe that if the United States had issued a warning to the effect that any entry of the Chinese Communists in force into Korea would be considered an act of international war against the United States, that the Korean War would have been terminated with our advance north." General Douglas MacArthur in Reminiscences (1964) thus recalled the unyielding position he took in April, 1951, when President Truman relieved him of all his commands in the Far East for publicly opposing the policies of the United States government.More

  14. Book ImageGermany Tried Democracy

    Samuel W. Halperin

    “Teachers of courses in twentieth-century German history will welcome the reprinting of this book, which has held its position as the best of the single-volume histories of the Weimar Republic in English.” —Gordon A. CraigMore

    Alvin H. Hansen, Richard V. Clemence

    Expanded Edition

    In this new edition Professor Hansen augments his authoritative study of the business cycle with an analysis of the performance—and the problems—of the postwar American economy.More
