The French Mandate for Syria and the Lebanon: The History and Legacy of France’s Administration of the Levant after World War I

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsThe United Nations is one of the most famous bodies in the world, and its predecessor, the League of Nations, might be equally notorious. In fact, President Woodrow Wilson’s pet project was controversial from nearly the minute it was conceived. At the end of World War I, Wilson's pleas at the Paris Peace Conference relied on his Fourteen Points, which included the establishment of a League of Nations, but while his points were mostly popular amongst Americans and Europeans alike, leaders at the Peace Conference largely discarded them and favored different approaches. British leaders saw their singular aim as the maintenance of British colonial possessions. France, meanwhile, only wanted to ensure ...

The Crimean War: Volume I An English Translation

by Yevgeny Tarle

The Concert of Europe established after the Napoleonic Wars is credited with keeping the 19th century relatively peaceful. The new world order was, in many respects, an attempt to turn back the clock. Much of Europe remained under the control of absolute monarchs installed by divine right, as seen in the Holy Alliance, a pact signed by Prussia, Austria and Russia to preserve “Christian” principles.Russia had gained an exaggerated aura of invincibility by taking the lead role in defeating Napoleon Bonaparte. The Russian Empire was incomprehensively vast and its military potential was incalculable, but it was far less formidable than was feared. The profoundly conservative Tsar Nicholas I resisted change and was seen by many as the bulwark of reaction on the continent. Unfortunately for ...

LONDON A VISITORS GUIDE

by Paul Chell

My Book is a visitors guide to London. I was prompted when two American tourists on the South Embankment asked me to take their photographs. We spoke briefly about London and they were absolutely amazed when I told them that this Embankment was reclaimed land from the river Thames. They didn't even know that fact. I told them about the frost fairs when the river used to freeze over a couple of centuries ago and again they didn't know this either. So it motivated me to write a visitors guide to London from my viewpoint as I know the Capital very well. Surely, London has to be one of the greatest Capitals in the world. There is so much history here. The Tower of London was built in 1076 and is still standing. How many other countries can go back that far? In fact some of the London Wall on ...

How Generations Remember: Conflicting Histories and Shared Memories in Post-War Bosnia and Herzegovina (Global Diversities)

by Monika Palmberger

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book provides a profound insight into post-war Mostar, and the memories of three generations of this Bosnian-Herzegovinian city. Drawing on several years of ethnographic fieldwork, it offers a vivid account of how personal and collective memories are utterly intertwined, and how memories across the generations are reimagined and ‘rewritten’ following great socio-political change. Focusing on both Bosniak-dominated East Mostar and Croat-dominated West Mostar, it demonstrates that, even in this ethno-nationally divided city with its two divergent national historiographies, generation-specific experiences are crucial in how people ascribe meaning to past events. It argues that the dramatic and often brutal transformations that Bosnia...

In 1923 during the Munich Beer Hall Putsch, Adolf Hitler threatened to blow his brains out. Twenty-two years later, he did. April 1945 – Berlin. The world had been at war for more than five-and-a-half years – approximately seventy million people were dead across the globe. The epicentre of the twelve-year-old Third Reich was now surrounded, enveloped by bitter Soviet forces hardened by Nazi barbarity in the east over the last four years. As the buildings were blasted into rubble, pounded by Russian guns and bombs, before their troops and tanks, Hitler was hunkered down in his last headquarters – the dark and damp bunker under the Reich Chancellery. As the Third Reich began to crumble as fast as the city’s buildings, what was the state of mind of the tyrant? Only his closest and fan...
