This book examines the ways in which scholarly expertise was mobilized during the First World War, and the consequences of this for the inter-connected academic world that had developed in the late nineteenth century. Adopting a strong international approach, the contributors to this volume examine the impact of the War on individuals, institutions, and disciplines, cumulatively demonstrating the strong afterlife of conflict for scholarly practices and academic communities across Europe and North America, in the decades following the cessation of the Great War.

In 1945, soon after the liberation of Auschwitz, Soviet authorities in control of the Kattowitz (Katowice) camp in Poland asked Primo Levi and his fellow captive Leonardo De Benedetti to compile a detailed report on the sanitary conditions they witnessed in Auschwitz. The result was an extraordinary testimony and one of the first accounts of the extermination camps ever written. Their report, published in a medical journal in 1946, marked the beginnings of Levi s life-long work as writer, analyst and witness. In the subsequent four decades, Levi never ceased to recount his experiences in Auschwitz in a wide variety of texts, many of which are assembled together here for the first time, alongside other testimony from De Benedetti. From early research into the fate of their companions to the deposition written for Eichmann s trial, Auschwitz Testimonies is a rich mosaic of documents, memories and critical reflections of great historic and human value. Underpinned by his characteristically clear language, rigorous method and deep psychological insight, this collection of testimonies, reports and analyses reaffirms Primo Levi s position as one of the most important chroniclers of the Holocaust.

In a world where we take for granted the ability to communicate instantly across vast distances and time, world history has come of age. We increasingly reflect on history from a position which no longer privileges Europe or the West, and from a global perspective which ranges from the Pacific Rim to the Balkans, and from Latin America to the Middle East. Compiled by an international team of contributors, area editors and general editors, The Cambridge Dictionary of Modern World History provides a much needed guide to the main global events, personalities and themes from the eighteenth century to the present. Major themes of war, politics, society and religion are covered, alongside more recent subjects within the discipline; from globalization and the environment to transnational social movements and human rights. This is an essential new work of reference not only for scholars and students but also for the wider general public.

  • Contents and AbstractsIntroduction: Total War: Politics, Power, and Benevolence chapter abstractThe Introduction establishes Beirut and Mount Lebanon as sites of total war and a civilian catastrophe of unprecedented proportion. It outlines the broader contributions of the book: the war's centrality to everyday life in what has been considered a geographic and political periphery. It situates provincial actors as important historical agents who negotiate their power positions and shape the political landscape despite and in response to an increasing interventionist state. It insists that the exigencies of war and famine constituted a generative force. It introduces the concept of politics of provisioning as a competitive engagement in war relief as one of the many arenas in which we can see war as a productive force. In this sense, the book's purpose is to portray the war of famine as simultaneously, and perhaps paradoxically, destructive and formative. 1A City and Its Mountain, a Mountain and Its City chapter abstractThis chapter places the famine into the context of long-term socioeconomic developments and locally and historically specific configurations that determine how civilians in Beirut and Mount Lebanon would experience the war and the accompanying famine. Nineteenth-century economic changes, it is argued, not only rendered Beirut and Mount Lebanon particularly vulnerable to wartime famine but also, combined with increased access to education and the emergence of mass politics following the 1908 Young Turk Revolution, broadened access to politics. The result was a particular set of local, national, and international actors in both state and civil society institutions who had varied degrees of access to power and whose social position dictated their capabilities to participate within the political field of provisioning and their potential to mitigate the horrors of the famine. 2Wartime Famine: Strategies, Logistics, and Catastrophe chapter abstractThis chapter analyzes the totalizing process of World War I and the effect it had on food supplies and civilian provisioning on the home front. It outlines the historically specific social, economic, and political relational processes linked directly to the war, with a focus on access to food supplies. While food is indispensable both on the battlefronts and home fronts, political negotiations and military campaigns have dominated the historiography of World War I in the Middle East. In Greater Syria, the famine generated an unprecedented urgency visible in talk and action around feeding Ottoman subjects. It is argued that the famine was a unique event contingent on the caprices of human action in times of war. It was neither a direct result of an absolute absence of food nor an unadulterated natural disaster. International and national wartime strategies, situations, and struggles determined much of individuals' relationships to daily necessities. 3The Politics of Food: Wartime Provisioning for Civilians chapter abstractThe Ottoman authorities at times responded to civilian food shortages, but the central government implemented an empire-wide civilian provisioning scheme only in the spring of 1916. In the absence of organized relief, local actors were pivotal in organizing provisions. Representatives of the state such as the Ottoman governor and Beirut's elites and politicians, many of whom came from a merchant background, were particularly well positioned to take up the responsibilities of provisioning because of their thorough understanding of the subtleties of the local food system. The chapter provides a close look at civilian provisioning as a competitive arena for local and state actors to establish, maintain, and strengthen their legitimacy as power brokers in the provinces. It showcases, in particular, local urban wartime politics by exposing communal dynamics in times of crisis and the intricacies of existing communal and social orders that shaped the experience on the home front. 4Prayers and Patrons: The Politics of Neutrality chapter abstractExamining food distribution in rural Mount Lebanon, the chapter argues that the Maronite Church, despite its many failures, contributed to the reshaping of Mount Lebanon's political landscape through its active role in wartime provisioning. The chapter outlines the church's practices of provisioning and situates them in the larger context of diaspora politics, foreign influence, and the relationship between Maronites, France, and the Ottoman state, which shaped wartime provisioning politics in Mount Lebanon. It argues that the church's existing institutions and personnel, utilized to distribute food in the most remote corners of the mountain, and Jamal Pasha's distinct efforts to sideline its main political competitor, the secular Administrative Council, guaranteed and expanded its political position. The chapter showcases the processes that allowed the Maronite Church to solidify its position as the temporal leadership of the Christians of Mount Lebanon, which guaranteed its seat at the postwar political bargaining table. 5Rats, Lice and Microbes: The Struggle against Infectious Diseases chapter abstractLike providing food, combating infectious diseases defined much of the wartime agenda of local officials and municipal offices in both Beirut and Mount Lebanon. The administrative health concerns were not only front-page news but also subject to politics of health provisioning and state intervention. The crises of total war accelerated the consolidation of a preexisting health regime, and interventionist policies focused on making sick bodies a public concern to be reported, isolated, and disinfected. The invasive nature of health provisioning made it a less competitive political space. The state needed local knowledge, and local health administrators needed the power of the military command to back up their work. The state worked in society. The combined work of local municipal agencies and actors and the state to fight disease and implement sanitary measures was exemplar of an increasingly more militant state intervention into civilians' daily life. 6Local Relief Initiatives: Civil Society, Women, and the State chapter abstractThis chapter discusses the politics of provisioning in civil society, focusing on the experience of local philanthropic societies run by local elites. These organizations had dominated the social welfare sectors in prewar Beirut, providing education, health care, and material charity. The outbreak of the war and increasing Ottoman paranoia turned such organizations into feared competitors that could undermine the state's credibility, stir up resentment, and possibly be venues for organizing against state authorities. In Beirut, the Ottomans incapacitated male-dominated local charitable organizations by denying government support, raising taxes, or simply closing them. At the same time, government officials encouraged female volunteer work, indicating that the Ottoman authorities did not see Lebanese women as a threat to the legitimacy of their regime. The recruitment of women into relief efforts closely associated with a patriotic discourse and government patronage boosted Lebanese women's political self-confidence, not easily reversed after the war. 7Beneficial Benevolence: International Wartime Relief Efforts chapter abstractThis chapter tells the story of war relief rendered by international agents, who had direct experience with the famine's inhumanity and, due to their diplomatic relations with the Ottomans, had continued access to its victims. American and German diplomats, missionaries, and military officials witnessed, recorded, and responded to the local suffering based on their political position in the empire and the international context of World War I. The chapter discusses foreign relief workers and government officials' engagement with or abstention from humanitarian work as a political tool advertising the benevolence and goodwill of their nations to local populations, while at the same time preserving their positive relationship with the Ottoman government. The decisions of foreigners whether to distribute aid, the chapter argues, were based on their position within local society, international obligations, and the careful consideration of short- and long-term economic interests. Conclusion: Beirut 1919: The Chaos of Memory and Politics chapter abstractIn 1919, the victors of war with a stroke of their pens determined the national futures of Beirut and Mount Lebanon. Local aspirations proved peripheral to decision making in Europe. The Conclusion argues that 1919 was not only a Parisian year. In Beirut and Mount Lebanon, 1919 was a year of swift changes, hopes, promises, rewards, despair, and disappointments. Wartime suffering and postwar ambiguities persuaded various political groups to articulate and lobby for their preferred postwar political constellation. And their differential and at times competing territorial and political desires entered into public discourse over national independence, Mandatory tutelage, and humanitarian aid. The Conclusion discusses how local and international agents of wartime provisioning, with their main competitors-the Ottoman state-removed from the scene, used accounts of real and fictitious wartime benevolence to construct discourses of legitimacy.

With the exception of a few targeted aerial bombardments of the city's port, Beirut and Mount Lebanon did not see direct combat in World War I. Yet civilian casualties in this part of the Ottoman Empire reached shocking heights, possibly numbering half a million people. No war, in its usual understanding, took place there, but Lebanon was incontestably war-stricken. As a food crisis escalated into famine, it was the bloodless incursion of starvation and the silent assault of fatal disease that defined everyday life. The Charity of War tells how the Ottoman home front grappled with total war and how it sought to mitigate starvation and sickness through relief activities. Melanie S. Tanielian examines the wartime famine's reverberations throughout the community: in Beirut's municipal institutions, in its philanthropic and religious organizations, in international agencies, and in the homes of the city's residents. Her local history reveals a dynamic politics of provisioning that was central to civilian experiences in the war, as well as to the Middle Eastern political landscape that emerged post-war. By tracing these responses to the conflict, she demonstrates World War I's immediacy far from the European trenches, in a place where war was a socio-economic and political process rather than a military event.

This is the first book to bring together an interdisciplinary, theoretically engaged and global perspective on the First World War through the lens of historical and cultural geography. Reflecting the centennial interest in the conflict, the collection explores the relationships between warfare and space, and pays particular attention to how commemoration is connected to spatial elements of national identity, and processes of heritage and belonging. Venturing beyond military history and memory studies, contributors explore conceptual contributions of geography to analyse the First World War, as well as reflecting upon the imperative for an academic discussion on the War's centenary. This book explores the War's impact in more unexpected theatres, blurring the boundary between home and fighting fronts, investigating the experiences of the war amongst civilians and often overlooked combatants. It also critically examines the politics of hindsight in the post-war period, and offers an historical geographical account of how the First World War has been memorialised within 'official' spaces, in addition to those overlooked and often undervalued 'alternative spaces' of commemoration. This innovative and timely text will be key reading for students and scholars of the First World War, and more broadly in historical and cultural geography, social and cultural history, European history, Heritage Studies, military history and memory studies.

What really happened in the centuries of conflict between Europe, Russia, China, America, and the peoples of the Muslim world This groundbreaking book is the first to address the catastrophic results of centuries of conflict, imperialism, and colonialism by the global north-China, Russia, Europe, Britain, and America-in the Muslim world. We see this legacy in the flood of refugees, collapse of institutions, terrorism, and widespread misery. Military force, regime change, and aid have failed because we have not understood the region's history-or our own role in it. To move toward peace and security, we must understand the causes of turmoil. Focusing half a century of experience as a historian, policy planner, diplomat, and businessman, William R. Polk explains in this authoritative work the deep hostilities that today convulse this part of the world. He deals with the entire Muslim world, from Nigeria to Indonesia, and from the dawn of Islam to the rise of the Islamic State, and explains how the dangers arose that we and the Muslims face, and how the dangers can be dealt with.

Whether we talk about human learning and unlearning, securitization, or political economy, the forces and mechanisms generating both globalization and disintegration are causally efficacious across the world. Thus, the processes that led to the victory of the `Leave' campaign in the June 2016 referendum on UK European Union membership are not simply confined to the United Kingdom, or even Europe. Similarly, conflict in Ukraine and the presidency of Donald Trump hold implications for a stage much wider than EU-Russia or the United States alone. Patomaki explores the world-historical mechanisms and processes that have created the conditions for the world's current predicaments and, arguably, involve potential for better futures. Operationally, he relies on the philosophy of dialectical critical realism and on the methods of contemporary social sciences, exploring how crises, learning and politics are interwoven through uneven wealth-accumulation and problematical growth-dynamics. Seeking to illuminate the causes of the currently prevailing tendencies towards disintegration, antagonism and - ultimately - war, he also shows how these developments are in fact embedded in deeper processes of human learning. The book embraces a Wellsian warning about the increasingly likely possibility of a military disaster, but its central objective is to further enlightenment and holoreflexivity within the current world-historical conjuncture. This work will be of interest to students and scholars of international relations, peace research, security studies and international political economy.

This book provides the first dedicated study of the Evian Conference of July 1938, an international initiative called by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt. While on the surface the conference appeared as an attempt to alleviate the distress faced by Jews being forced out of Germany and Austria, in reality it only served to demonstrate that the nations of the world were not willing to accept Jews as refugees. Since the Holocaust, a generally-held assumption has been that the Evian Conference represented a lost opportunity to save Germany's Jews, and that the conference failed to rescue the Jews of Europe. In this study, Paul Bartrop argues that in fact it did not fail when measured against the original reasons for which it was called. Exposing many of the myths surrounding the meeting, this work addresses a glaring lacuna in the literature of the Holocaust, and places the so-called 'failure' of the Evian Conference into its proper context.

The Global 1960s presents compelling narratives from around the world in order to de-center the roles played by the United States and Europe in both scholarship on, and popular memories of, the sixties. Geographically and chronologically broad, this volume scrutinizes the concept of "the sixties" as defined in both Western and non-Western contexts. It provides scope for a set of analyses that together span the late 1950s to the early 1970s. Written by a diverse and international group of contributors, chapters address topics ranging from the socialist scramble for Africa, to the Naxalite movement in West Bengal, the Troubles in Northern Ireland, global media coverage of Israel, Cold War politics in Hong Kong cinema, sexual revolution in France, and cultural imperialism in Latin America. The Global 1960s explores the contest between convention and counter-culture that shaped this iconic decade, emphasizing that while the sixties are well-known for liberation, activism, and protest against the establishment, traditional hierarchies and social norms remained remarkably entrenched. Multi-faceted and transnational in approach, this book is valuable reading for all students and scholars of twentieth-century global history.

The Great War and the Moving Image focuses upon the Allied war effort on the Western Front and in the Mediterranean. In doing so, the book addresses topics ranging from how carefully selected images projected a positive portrayal of ambulance trains, through film's instructional role promoting self-sufficiency on the home front, to the vital role of makeshift YMCA cinemas both sides of the Channel. With editors and contributors who are authorities on cinema in wartime Britain and on the British response to the challenge of `total war', the volume highlights the power that the moving image had during the Great War. In the introduction, the editors consider why the First World War can be seen as the first uniquely cinematic conflict. Later, historians from Britain, Australia, and America go on to explore film's pioneering role as a powerful vehicle for propaganda at home and abroad, and its contribution to maintaining morale among soldiers on the front line as well as across civilian audiences back home. The book concludes by considering the representation of trench warfare in today's hi-tech computer games. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television.

This landmark book documents little-known wartime Japanese atrocities during World War II. Yuki Tanaka's case studies, still remarkably original and significant, include cannibalism; the slaughter and starvation of prisoners of war; the rape, enforced prostitution, and murder of noncombatants; and biological warfare experiments. The author describes how desperate Japanese soldiers consumed the flesh of their own comrades killed in fighting as well as that of Australians, Pakistanis, and Indians. He traces the fate of sixty-five shipwrecked Australian nurses and British soldiers who were shot or stabbed to death by their captors. Another thirty-two nurses were captured and sent to Sumatra to become "comfort women"-sex slaves for Japanese soldiers. Tanaka recounts how thousands of Australian and British POWs were massacred in the infamous Sandakan camp in the Borneo jungle in 1945, while those who survived were forced to endure a tortuous 160-mile march on which anyone who dropped out of line was immediately shot. This new edition also includes a powerful chapter on the island of Nauru, where thirty-nine leprosy patients were killed and thousands of Naurans were ill-treated and forced to leave their homes. Without denying individual and national responsibility, the author explores individual atrocities in their broader social, psychological, and institutional milieu and places Japanese behavior during the war in the broader context of the dehumanization of men at war. In his substantially revised conclusion, Tanaka brings in significant new interpretations to explain why Japanese imperial forces were so brutal, tracing the historical processes that created such a unique military structure and ideology. Finally, he investigates why a strong awareness of their collective responsibility for wartime atrocities has been and still is lacking among the Japanese.

What does it mean - and what might it yet come to mean - to write 'history' in the twenty-first century? History After Hobsbawm brings together leading historians from across the globe to ask what being an historian should mean in their particular fields of study. Taking their cue from one of the previous century's greatest historians, Eric Hobsbawm, and his interests across many periods and places, the essays approach their subjects with an underlying sense of what role an historian might seek to play, and attempt to help twenty-first-century society understand 'how we got here'. They present new work in their sub-fields but also point to how their specialisms are developing, how they might further grow in the future, and how different areas of focus might speak to the larger challenges of history - both for the discipline itself and for its relationship to other fields of academic inquiry. Like Hobsbawn, the authors in this collection know that history matters. They speak to both the past and the present and, in so doing, introduce some of the most exciting new lines of research in a broad array of subjects from the medieval period to the present.

History Flows Through Us introduces a new dialogue between leading historians and psychoanalysts and provides essential insights into the nature of historical trauma. The contributors - German historians, historians of the Holocaust and psychoanalysts of different disciplinary backgrounds - address the synergy between history and psychoanalysis in an engaging and accessible manner. Together they develop a response to German history and the Holocaust that is future-oriented and timely in the presence of today's ethnic hatreds. In the process, they help us to appreciate the emotional and political legacy of history's collective crimes. This book illustrates how history and the psyche shape one another and the degree to which history flows through all of us as human beings. Its innovative cross-disciplinary approach draws on the work of the historian and psychoanalyst, Thomas Kohut. The volume includes an extended dialogue with Kohut in which he reflects on the study of German history and the Holocaust at the intersection of history and psychoanalysis. This book demonstrates that the fields of history and psychoanalysis are each concerned with the role of empathy and with the study of memory and narrative. History Flows Through Us will appeal to general readers, students and professionals in cultural history, Holocaust and trauma studies, sociology, psychoanalysis, psychotherapy and psychology.
