  • Sovereign Soldiers: How the U.S. Military Transformed the Global Economy After World War II (American Business, Politics, and Society)

    They helped conquer the greatest armies ever assembled. Yet no sooner had they tasted victory after World War II than American generals suddenly found themselves governing their former enemies, devising domestic policy and making critical economic decisions for people they had just defeated in battle. In postwar Germany and Japan, this authority fell into the hands of Dwight D. Eisenhower and Douglas MacArthur, along with a cadre of military officials like Lucius Clay and the Detroit banker Joseph Dodge.In Sovereign Soldiers, Grant Madsen tells... [Read More]

  • The Economy of Ethnic Cleansing: The Transformation of the German-Czech Borderlands after World War II

    In the wake of World War II the Sudetenland became the scene of ethnic cleansing, witnessing not only the expulsion of nearly three million German speakers, but also the influx of nearly two million resettlers. Yet mob violence and nationalist hatred were not the driving forces of ethnic cleansing; instead, greed, the search for power and property, and the general dislocation of post-war Central and Eastern Europe facilitated these expulsions and the transformation of the German-Czech borderlands. These overlapping migrations produced conflict ... [Read More]

  • The Weimar Republic

    The nature of Weimar's terminal crisis - how a politically liberal and culturally progressive society could succomb to fascism - remains one of the central historical questions of our century. In this major work, Detlev J.K. Peukert offers a stimulating interpretation that not only places Weimar in the history of twentieth-century Germany but also reveals it as an archetype of the ambivalences and pathologies of advanced industrial society....

  • Social Structure and Voting in the United States

    This book analyzes practical and moral influences on voting decisions. Undermining the widespread assumption that economic self-interest is the key determinant of voting choices, it discovers that moral considerations rooted in religious traditions are often the more decisive. This finding is confirmed through a close analysis of tangible problems, such as child neglect and crime, problems which one would expect to trouble practical voters. Further, this book suggests that political ideologies influence party affiliation, rather than the other ... [Read More]

  • War and Social Welfare: Reconstruction after Conflict

    War and Social Welfare: Reconstruction after Conflict addresses the issues of rebuilding social assistance and pension programs in the wake of war. Arguing that post-conflict reconstruction missions need to pay greater attention to comprehensive social policy formation, the book makes normative and functional claims that social welfare programs articulate the core aspects of citizenship. War and Social Welfare uses the case of Kosovo to examine the interaction of international and local political actors in their efforts to rebuild social assist... [Read More]

  • Athens after the Peloponnesian War (Routledge Revivals): Class, Faction and Policy 403-386 B.C.

    Historians are used to studying the origins of war. The rebuilding in the aftermath of war is a subject that – at least in the case of Athens – has received far less attention. Along with the problems of reconstructing the economy and replenishing the population, the problem of renegotiating political consensus was equally acute. Athens after the Peloponnesian War, first published in 1986, undertakes a radically new investigation into the nature of Athenian political groups. The general model of ‘faction’ provided by political anthropo... [Read More]

  • Conservatism in Crisis?: Anglo-American Conservative Ideology After the Cold War

    Conservatism in Crisis? examines the distinctive features of British and American conservative writings on government and society in the post-Cold War era. Despite Conservative's victories over their socialist opponents, this has not led to the uncontested dominance of their ideas. By looking at the challenges Conservatives face from such present day opponents as multiculturalists and environmentalists, Bruce Pilbeam examines the possibility that conservatism is exhausted as an ideology of contemporary relevance....
