The Origins of the Modern World

New

The Ancient World to the Present

From the Origins to the Current Crisis

By Robert B. Marks

“[A]n invaluable addition to the history classroom.” —Senya Lubisich, Citrus College

“Highly recommended.” —CHOICE “[T]his book is ideal for the classroom: it will provoke both thought and discussion—and occasional disagreement.” —John R. McNeill, Georgetown University “[C]ompact, highly readable, and easy to connect with contemporary concerns.” —Kenneth Pomeranz, University of Chicago Now in a new edition, this clearly written and engrossing book presents a global and environmental narrative of the origins of the modern world since 1400. New to this Edition: •

Substantive new material interwoven throughout the narrative on the ways in which humans encountered and changed the natural environment

Focus on increasing global inequality

Brings in new scholarship on world and environmental history

Second Edition

By David Hertzel

“Instead of another large, unruly text, The World History Workbook offers us a manageable approach to the subject featuring critical historiographical topics, straightforward comments on methodology, an impressive set of primary sources, and a selection of relevant exercises that bring students face to face with the study of history.” —John Hayden, Southwestern Oklahoma State University

By Christopher Isett and Stephen Miller “Written with tremendous clarity and verve by two scholars in complete command of their subject, this is one of the best works of analytical history to have been published in recent years.” —Vivek Chibber, New York University “[A]n extraordinary feat of interpretation. . . . An invaluable contribution for scholars, students at all levels, and general readers alike, it truly is a tour de force.” —Robert Brenner, University of California–Los Angeles This text provides a compelling narrative world history through the lens of food and farmers. Tracing the world history of agriculture from earliest times to the present, Isett and Miller argue that people rather than markets have been the primary agents of agricultural change, exploring the actions taken by individuals and groups over time.

New to this Edition:

Special Features:

Combines narrative, projects, and primary sources into a single volume

Offers a precise and compelling definition of capitalism

Integrates dozens of primary source excerpts into the narrative

Organized chronologically

Challenges the assumption that agriculture has progressed incrementally, that generations built off of one another’s advances, each seeking wealth through trade

Presents the distinct logics of slave, feudal, peasant, and capitalist agriculture in various periods and places in history

David Hertzel is professor of history at Southwestern Oklahoma State University.

Getting High

Marijuana through the Ages By John Charles Chasteen

“[S]uccinct and engaging. . . . Chasteen ably heightens readers’ awareness of the herb by reviewing the many ways marijuana has been used for ‘creative and philosophical epiphanies.’” —Publishers Weekly “An engaging study. . . . Highly recommended.” —CHOICE “Getting High takes us on a journey back in time and across the globe from the pot smoking counterculture of 1960s America to the Scythian purification rituals of late Bronze Age Central Asia. It’s a marvelous journey led by an honest, sympathetic, and engaging guide. Anyone interested in marijuana’s role in society will find something new in this innovative, delightfully written book.” —James A. Wood, North Carolina A&T State University “In this purposeful, provocative book, John Chasteen draws the present debate about marijuana into the past.” —Bianca Premo, Florida International University This captivating book surveys the global history of marijuana, reaching back millennia to its origins in Asia. Chasteen traces the use of the drug since Neolithic times, when marijuana was among the first domesticated plants. Surprisingly, there is a vibrant spiritual dimension to its long history that Chasteen explores with captivating insight. John Charles Chasteen is a North Carolina writer, translator of Spanish and Portuguese, and, for twenty-five years, professor of history at UNC Chapel Hill.

By Geoffrey Blainey (Harvard University and University of Melbourne)

“Blaine covers this all in 27 succinct chapters. . . . To present an engaging, illuminating, terse history of the 20th century as Blainey has done is a considerable accomplishment. Highly recommended.” —CHOICE

“Anthropology and Global History is impressive in its breadth and depth, concise enough to hold the reader’s attention, and thorough enough to provide a rich sense of the major scholars and critics of World System theory as well as the history and anthropology of various world regions. Students and scholars alike will appreciate this excellent synthesis of the history of aboriginal peoples the world over—not to mention Carmack’s lively and engaging writing.” —David Carey, Loyola University Maryland

“With great sophistication and grace, Blainey weaves together the momentous events of the 20th century.” —The Christian Century “His descriptive narratives are effective in helping readers to visualize certain periods of the century.” —Journal of World History

Anthropology and Global History explains the origin and development of human societies and cultures from their earliest beginnings to the present—utilizing an anthropological lens but also drawing from sociology, economics, political science, history, and ecological and religious studies.

Clash of Crowns

William the Conqueror, Richard Lionheart, and Eleanor of Aquitaine—A Story of Bloodshed, Betrayal, and Revenge By Mary McAuliffe

“Supplemented with a timeline, a dramatis personae, and extensive notes, fans of medieval European history will delight in McAuliffe’s rich tale.” —Publishers Weekly “A lively and affectionate account of a grand scenario in medieval history.” —Thomas N. Bisson, Harvard University “A rattling good read that captures the mood of the age.” —John France, Swansea University Conflict between England and France was a fact of life for centuries, but few realize that this conflict originated with the Vikings and their settlement of what would become Normandy. In this compelling and entertaining history, Mary McAuliffe takes the reader back to those dark and turbulent times when Viking descendant William the Conqueror became king of England, yet as duke of Normandy remained an unwilling subject to the French crown. This led to ongoing hostility between his descendants and generations of French monarchs, culminating in the clash between young Philip Augustus of France and his royal English rivals, most notably Richard Lionheart. Mary McAuliffe received a PhD in history from the University of Maryland and has taught at several universities and lectured at the Smithsonian Institution. For many years she was a regular contributor to Paris Notes. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

Moreover . . . it is an approach that most students would embrace.” —Journal of Interdisciplinary History “[Aberth] has a lively writing style, and each chapter is framed by lucid summary descriptions of disease symptoms, progression, transmission, treatments, and the respective debates. Plagues in World History should be a profitable and successful textbook for undergraduate students and general readers.” —Journal of World History See full listing on page 8.

Stalin’s Singing Spy

The Life and Exile of Nadezhda Plevitskaya By Pamela A. Jordan

“[A] fascinating biography.” —Publishers Weekly “This beautifully written book is the first Englishlanguage biography of Nadezhda Plevitskaya. . . . Jordan’s approach is balanced and impartial, and it is to her credit that she reconstructs Plevitskaya’s life with objectivity. . . . Jordan’s focus is on one person’s life, but she teaches both the specialist and the general reader a great deal about Russian cultural past and history.” —The Russian Review “A thorough and informative biography. . . . It is fascinating to follow Jordan’s reconstruction of Plevitskaya’s improbable life trajectory from peasant village, to grand concert halls, to command performances for the tsar, and ultimately to the travails of emigration.” —Vladimir Alexandrov, Yale University Stalin’s Singing Spy follows the life of Nadezhda Plevitskaya, who achieved fame as one of Nicholas II’s favorite singers and infamy as one of Stalin’s agents. The first Western biography of this key figure and the first to reconstruct her sensationalized trial for kidnapping a White Army general, this book provides a fascinating window into Soviet-era espionage in interwar Europe.

Putin’s Wars

The Rise of Russia’s New Imperialism Second Edition

By Marcel H. Van Herpen “Marcel Van Herpen’s warnings of a new Russian empire in the making became reality in early 2014 just after the publication of the first edition of this book, when Vladimir Putin organized a clandestine takeover of the Crimea, while likewise secretly backing separatist movements in the eastern Ukraine. . . . Whether or not one sees the new Russian imperialism as essentially offensive or defensive, the book raises thought-provoking questions as to how the United States and Europe should best respond to Russian pan-nationalist militancy and Putin’s quest to forge a Eurasian alliance. ” —Hall Gardner, author of Crimea, Global Rivalry, and the Vengeance of History “Most timely! The book is recommended as a welldocumented, well-argued, and strong criticism of Moscow’s foreign policy. . . . Recommended.” —CHOICE This fully updated book offers the first systematic analysis of Putin’s three wars, placing the Second Chechen War, the war with Georgia of 2008, and the war with Ukraine of 2014–2015 in their broader historical context. Readable and clearly argued, this study is essential for understanding the dynamics of Putin’s regime. Marcel H. Van Herpen is director of the Cicero Foundation, Maastricht.

A World Erased

By Noah Lederman

A Philadelphia Inquirer Best Read “Noah Lederman . . . offers a compelling thirdgeneration perspective on the Holocaust, the survivors, and their families. He craves the details about death camps and ghettos that gave his grandparents nightmares. Part travelogue into the Europe of former concentration camps and his grandparents’ native Poland, part quest for the ugly truths he was shielded from as a child, Lederman’s narrative opens with the death of his grandfather, and the urgent need to learn, delicately, from his grandmother what he can before her stories die with her.” —Philadelphia Inquirer “Lederman’s dogged persistence in getting his grandparents to recount their memories of the Holocaust pays off brilliantly. In A World Erased, he rescues their stories—and the stories of so many who survived, and so many who didn’t—and turns their experiences during the Holocaust into an enduring monument for his own generation and those to follow.” —Wayne Hoffman, Tablet Magazine, and author of Sweet Like Sugar This moving memoir by the grandson of Holocaust survivors transports readers from Noah’s grandmother’s home in Brooklyn to World War II Poland. Together, they explore the memories—of Auschwitz, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and the displaced persons camps—that his family had long buried. Their shared journey illuminates the power of never forgetting. Noah Lederman is an award-winning writer whose work has been published in The Economist, the Boston Globe, the Miami Herald, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Jerusalem Post, Tikkun, and elsewhere.

Soccer under the Swastika By Kevin E. Simpson

“This thoughtful, carefully documented work offers both big-picture context and individual stories, including those of players on both sides of the Nazi terror and of some whose situations were more complicated.” —Booklist “Rarely are the spirits of a subject and a book about it as well matched as in Kevin Simpson’s vivid, absorbing, and very well contextualized account of Soccer under the Swastika. Clearly a labor of love by an author who knows ‘the beautiful game’ inside and out, the story told in this book will consistently engage and recurrently move and trouble its readers.” —Peter Hayes, emeritus, Northwestern University As millions were caught up in the conflict of World War II, soccer emerged as both a response to domination and a means of manipulation by those in power. Soccer under the Swastika reveals this little-known part of history, rescuing from obscurity many poignant survivor testimonies, old accounts of wartime players, and the diaries of survivors and perpetrators. In victim accounts and rare photographs—many published for the first time in this book—hidden stories of soccer in almost every Nazi concentration camp appear. Kevin E. Simpson is professor of psychology at John Brown University. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

One of the most common assumptions about World War II is that the Jews did not actively resist their own extermination. Ginsberg convincingly argues that the Jews not only resisted the Nazis, but actually played a major role in Germany’s defeat. In this compelling, cogent history, we discover that Jews contributed powerfully to Hitler’s end.

Interrogation Nation

Refugees and Spies in Cold War Germany By Keith R. Allen

The Demon of Geopolitics

Re-Unified Germany After 1989

How Karl Haushofer “Educated” Hitler and Hess

By Ben Gook

“At a moment in which the outlook for the European project seems bleak and representative democracy is in crisis, [...] Divided Subjects, Invisible Borders has much to offer specialists interested in how dissatisfied and disaggregated citizens negotiate the identities they are forced to share, at least superficially, with one another.” —German History

By Holger H. Herwig

“Herwig’s objective is to give an accurate picture of Haushofer and his brand of geopolitics. . . . Questions considered are whether Haushofer was a National Socialist in spirit and how Hitler’s race version of geopolitics differed from Haushofer’s traditional imperialist power politics version.” —CHOICE

Divided Subjects, Invisible Borders details, through empirical and theoretical exposition, how the national unity of Germany after the Fall of the Berlin Wall conceals persistent division in the lives of eastern and western Germans.

“An excellent piece of research and writing. This significant work depicts the important influence Karl Haushofer had on the geopolitical approach of Hess and Hitler, breaking the seal on the Aladdin’s lamp of former geopolitical thinking.” —Gerhard P. Gross, Bundeswehr Center for Military History and Social Sciences In this definitive biography, noted historian Holger H. Herwig explores the life and times of Karl Haushofer, widely recognized as the “father of geopolitics” and the architect of Lebensraum, the rationale for Germany’s control of Europe and the world. Holger H. Herwig is professor emeritus at the University of Calgary. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

The Diary of Samuel Golfard and the Holocaust in Galicia

War, Pacification, and Mass Murder, 1939

“This volume combines a powerfully emotional personal narrative with concise and cohesive historical analysis in a way that other sourcebased books do not. Moreover, it is of great use to both scholars and students.” —Holocaust and Genocide Studies

By Jürgen Matthäus, Jochen Böhler, and Klaus-Michael Mallmann

“It is a miracle that this diary survived and has now become an invaluable source on the Holocaust in a small town in western Ukraine. It provides a glimpse into the state of mind of those destined for annihilation on the very eve of their destruction. The diarist is insightful and thoughtful. The introduction and commentary provided by Wendy Lower are nuanced and intelligent.” —John Paul Himka, University of Alberta

This invaluable work traces the role of the Einsatzgruppen of the Security Police and SD, the core group of Himmler’s murder units involved in the “Final Solution of the Jewish Question,” during and immediately after the German campaign in Poland in 1939. With carefully selected primary sources contextualized by the authors’ clear narrative, this work fills an important gap in our understanding of a crucial period in the evolution of policies directed against Jews, Poles, and others deemed dangerous or inferior by the Third Reich. Supplemented by maps and photographs, this book will be an essential reference and research tool.

By Wendy Lower

This in-depth study of a Jewish man’s diary from Nazi-occupied Poland provides an unfiltered view of the struggles of Samuel Golfard, who tried to make sense of and resist the Holocaust that ultimately destroyed him. The diary is complemented by an array of wartime and postwar photographs, newspaper articles, documents, and testimonies that create a fuller picture of Jewish resistance and the perpetration of mass murder in eastern Galicia.

The Holocaust in Hungary

Evolution of a Genocide

By Zoltán Vági, László Csősz, and Gábor Kádár “[The book] presents history and historic sources in a very gripping and multi-faceted manner.” —Zeitschrift für Geschichtswissenschaft “As a whole, the book is a very significant contribution to the topic of the Holocaust in Hungary, which is relatively underrepresented in research literature about the Holocaust in English.” —H-Judaic The Holocaust in Hungary provides a comprehensive documentary account of one of the most brutal and effective killing campaigns in history. After Nazi Germany took control of Hungary late in World War II, Jews were rounded up with unprecedented speed and sent directly to Auschwitz. They would form the largest group of victims who perished in that camp. The authors present extensive reports, testimonies, and other primary sources of these events accompanied by in-depth commentary that spans the years from the late 1930s to the fractured landscape of postwar Hungary.

Praise for volumes in the Jewish Responses to Persecution series: “This is an exceptionally well researched volume. . . . Any reader seeking a glimpse of the mindset of German Jewry in the years leading up to the Final Solution will find the rich array of documents and correspondence in this volume to be of great interest.” —Jewish Book World “These documents restore human agency to German Jews and reveal the multifaceted reactions to Nazism. The focus on contemporaneous sources avoids the trap common in much of the memoir literature that assumes Jews knew the end result of Nazi terror.” —Library Journal “This volume will provide scholars with invaluable materials for research projects on the Jewish victims of Nazi persecution. But its main value, and that of the four volumes that will follow, will be as a teaching resource especially for undergraduate and graduate seminars in Jewish history and the history of the Holocaust.” —Holocaust and Genocide Studies “An extraordinary collection of documents that opens up the world of the 1930s as German Jews experienced it in all its urgency, confusion, disorientation, hope, and despair, not as we now make sense of it with the advantage of hindsight.” —Christopher R. Browning, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill “An invaluable aide to scholars, teachers, students, and all others who want to know more about ‘the six million.’” —Deborah E. Lipstadt, Emory University “As in the preceding volume, the Jewish victims’ reactions to the rapidly expanding Nazi onslaught are contextualized in an exemplary presentation: An admirable addition to an essential initiative.” —Saul Friedländer, University of California at Los Angeles “Opens an invaluable window onto the multifaceted ways in which Jews reflected, interpreted, and commemorated the Nazi genocide and what lessons survivors drew from their traumatic experiences in the immediate aftermath of World War II.” —Laura Jockusch, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem About the Authors Jürgen Matthäus is research director at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

“This is an important book for historians of rural Europe in the twentieth century and for anyone who still wonders why Hitler invaded the Soviet Union.” —Paul Brassley, University of Exeter Telling the story of the Nazis’ plan to kill millions of people in the German-occupied eastern territories, this book examines food politics during the Third Reich. Gesine Gerhard explores the economics of food production and consumption in Nazi Germany, as well as its use as a justification for war and as a tool for genocide. See full listing on page 50.

Balkan Genocides

Holocaust and Ethnic Cleansing in the Twentieth Century By Paul Mojzes

“[Balkan Genocides] go well beyond the binary stereotypes of the region—East versus West, liberal versus authoritarian, nationalist versus cosmopolitan—in their interrogation of what constitutes normalcy for a group of diverse countries with overlapping historical experiences and the frequent misfortune of being stuck between larger, more ambitious powers.” —Los Angeles Review of Books

Milan Panic tells of his attempt to oust Slobodan Milosevic and his battle with the U.S. State Department in an effort to bring peace to the Balkans during the Yugoslav Wars. A young cycling champion who fought Nazi occupation in Yugoslavia, Panic defected after WWII to start a new life in the United States. But his greatest challenge lay ahead. Milan Panic, who was born in Belgrade in 1929, served as prime minister of Yugoslavia from 1992 to 1993.

“McAuliffe creates an expansive landscape in her examination of a transformative decade.” —Kirkus “Graced with period photographs and bolstered with an impressive selection of sources, When Paris Sizzled will captivate anyone who has wondered just what the Lost Generation was up to.” —Booklist “When Paris Sizzled delivers an expansive and wonderfully engaging account of the spirited characters who made the Left Bank of Paris the center of the creative world. ” —The Huffington Post “McAuliffe, the author of several books about Paris, draws on the troves of material left behind by the era’s great writers and expats to bring the city to life in a kind of you-are-herewith-Cocteau-and-Chanel tableau vivant.” —New York Times When Paris Sizzled vividly portrays the City of Light during the fabulous 1920s, when art and architecture, music, literature, fashion, entertainment, transportation, and behavior all took dramatically new forms.

Twilight of the Belle Epoque

The Paris of Picasso, Stravinsky, Proust, Renault, Marie Curie, Gertrude Stein, and Their Friends through the Great War By Mary McAuliffe

“[A]n unforgettable portrait of Paris.” —New York Times “[A] panoramic chronicle. . . . This is a work of serious history, but has some of the easy charms of the coffee-table book.” —The Wall Street Journal “McAuliffe’s knowledge of and enthusiasm for this time is evident on every page.” —Foreword Reviews “[A] lively account of an era of literary, artistic and technical innovation that ended with the worldaltering tragedy of WWI.” —France Magazine In Twilight of the Belle Epoque, Mary McAuliffe portrays Paris in full flower at the turn of the twentieth century, where creative dynamos such as Picasso, Matisse, Stravinsky, Debussy, Ravel, Proust, Marie Curie, Gertrude Stein, Jean Cocteau, and Isadora Duncan set their respective circles on fire with their revolutionary visions and discoveries. But all was not well in this world, remembered in hindsight as a golden age, and wrenching struggles between Church and state as well as between haves and have-nots shadowed these years, underscored by the ever-more-ominous drumbeat of the approaching Great War—a cataclysm that would brutally bring the Belle Epoque to its close.

Shanghai Faithful By Jennifer Lin

You must join her for this worthwhile journey!” —Connie Chung, television journalist “This masterful biography is a loving and skillfully written portrait of the Lin family, spanning five generations. . . . I recommend this book highly for both the novice and the ‘old China hand.’” —Daniel Bays, emeritus, Calvin College, author of A New History of Christianity in China “Jennifer Lin has written a dramatic, wideranging history of modern China, focusing on the lives of her grandfather and his brotherin-law to explain how Western Christianity became a Chinese religion. [A] riveting account.” —Terry Lautz, Harvard-Yenching Institute Through the 150-year saga of one family, this book traces the remarkable religious evolution of the world’s most populous nation.

Celestial Women

Marriage and Monogamy in Twentieth-Century China

Imperial Wives and Concubines in China from Song to Qing

By Lisa Tran

“Lisa Tran’s study of the legal treatment of concubinage during the transition from late empire to Republic and then People’s Republic will be required reading for anyone interested in gender, family, and law in modern China. . . . Based on careful exegesis of cases from legal archives, Tran shows how concubines took advantage of their changing status to secure new rights in court.” —Matthew Sommer, Stanford University

By Keith McMahon

“McMahon offers us once more a vivid, erudite, and comprehensive depiction of the Chinese sovereigns’ seraglio. All the notable narratives and anecdotes from Song to Qing are recorded in this captivating volume.” —Damien Chaussende, French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) “Celestial Women is the first in-depth study of the intimate lives of emperors, their consorts, and their lovers—both male and female. . . . This book is of great interest to China scholars and students as well as global historians.” —Harriet Zurndorfer, Leiden University This volume completes McMahon’s acclaimed history of imperial wives and royal polygamy in China. Avoiding the stereotype of empresses and imperial concubines as mere victims or playthings, this book considers them as full-fledged participants in palace life, whether as mothers, wives, or go-betweens in the emperor’s relations with others. Keith McMahon is professor of East Asian languages and cultures at the University of Kansas.

This groundbreaking book analyzes marriage and family reform in modern China. As the first in-depth study of the meaning and practice of monogamy and concubinage, Tran’s work makes an important contribution to our understanding of Chinese society and legal norms. Poised at the intersection of Chinese history, women’s history, and legal history, this book makes a significant contribution to all three fields.

Women in Imperial China By Bret Hinsch

“This book is a tour de force—a learned and lively presentation of women’s history during the longue durée of China’s development, from ancient beginnings to the end of the Qing era. . . . Hinsch draws on a wealth of scholarship, including primary and secondary sources in English, as well as those in Chinese and Japanese, and creates a readable and informative narrative of women’s history in China.” —Harriet Zurndorfer, Leiden University This clear and accessible text provides a comprehensive survey of women’s history in China from the Neolithic period through the end of the Qing dynasty in the early twentieth century. Rather than providing an exhaustive chronicle of this vast subject, Bret Hinsch pinpoints the themes that characterized distinct periods in Chinese women’s history and delves into the perception of female identity in each era. Moving beyond the traditional focus on the late imperial era, Hinsch explores how gender relations have developed and changed since ancient times. Professors and students will find this an invaluable textbook for Chinese women’s studies and an excellent supplement for courses in gender studies and Chinese history. Bret Hinsch is professor of history at Fo Guang University, Taiwan. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

Comfort Woman

A Filipina’s Story of Prostitution and Slavery under the Japanese Military Second Edition

By Maria Rosa Henson Introduction by Yuki Tanaka Foreword by Cynthia Enloe Preface by Sheila S. Coronel “[Henson’s] example is unforgettable.” —The Japan Times “Serves as a good introduction to readers who may be approaching the subject of ‘comfort women’ for the first time.” —Pilipinas In 1943, 15-year-old Maria Rosa Henson was taken by Japanese soldiers occupying the Philippines and forced into prostitution as a “comfort woman.” Now with a new introduction and foreword that assess the ongoing controversy over comfort women, her powerful memoir will be essential reading for all those concerned with violence against women. Maria Rosa Henson, 1928–1996, was one of thousands of Asian women forced into prostitution during World War II by the Japanese military. Yuki Tanaka was research professor at the Hiroshima Peace Institute of Hiroshima City University until his retirement in 2015. Cynthia Enloe is research professor in the Department of International Development, Community, and Social Change and the Department of Women’s Studies at Clark University.

Hiroshima

The Autobiography of Barefoot Gen

By Nakazawa Keiji Translated by Richard H. Minear “[A] moving autobiography.” —Los Angeles Times “Barefoot Gen eloquently depicts the experience of surviving an atomic bomb, deriving its power from the individuality of its characters and its emotional honesty. Richard Minear introduces us here to Gen as an adult, revealing the process by which Nakazawa Keiji decided to tell his story—when no one wanted to hear it.” —Laura Hein, Northwestern University This compelling autobiography tells the life story of famed manga artist Nakazawa Keiji. Born in Hiroshima in 1939, Nakazawa was six years old when on August 6, 1945, the United States dropped the atomic bomb. His gritty and stunning account of the horrific aftermath is powerfully told through the eyes of a child who lost most of his family and neighbors. Nakazawa Keiji (1939–2012) was the creator of Barefoot Gen, one of the most storied manga of all time, which recounts the experiences of his alter ego, Gen, before and after August 6, 1945. A leading translator of classics of Hiroshima literature, Richard H. Minear is professor of history emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

The Stories Hardbackes Tell

Voices of Working-Class Japan

The Underside of Modern Japan

By Tatsuichi Horikiri Translated by Rieko Wagoner

By Mikiso Hane Introduction by Samuel H. Yamashita

“[A]n indispensable source for anyone wishing to know—or teach—about Japan’s traumatic emergence as a modern nation.” —John W. Dower, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Embracing Defeat “[R]emains an invaluable source for any student or researcher seeking to understand the human cost of Japan’s audacious and gruelling leap into the twentieth century.” —Pacific Affairs

“This is a remarkably coherent translation of a fascinating book. ” —Christopher Gerteis, SOAS, University of London This compelling social history tells the stories of ordinary people in modern Japan. Tatsuichi Horikiri spent a lifetime searching out old items of Hardbacking and oral accounts to shed light on those who used these items. He illuminates not only the often desperate lives of these people but also their hopes, aspirations, and human values.

Now updated with a substantive new introduction, this compelling social history uses diaries, memoirs, fiction, trial testimony, personal recollections, and eyewitness accounts to weave a fascinating tale of what ordinary Japanese endured throughout their country’s era of booming economic growth.

Tatsuichi Horikiri is an independent scholar at the Kitakyushu Museum of Natural History and Human History. Rieko Wagoner is principal lecturer in Japanese at Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut.

How Africa Shapes the World

By John Campbell

African Independence By Tukufu Zuberi

“In this pleasant and accessible study, Zuberi . . . guides readers through the historical and current straits of the vast continent of Africa. . . . With appearances by a long roster of ‘history makers’— including activists, leaders, and freedom fighters— Zuberi’s work is a well-researched and informed, if selective, story of the making of modern Africa, and constitutes an impassioned plea to recognize the continent for more than the trouble it has endured. Maps and photos.” —Publishers Weekly “I would recommend this book to the general reader interested in the history of postcolonial Africa.” —African Studies Quarterly African Independence is a dynamic discussion of how Africa shapes world events today. Tukufu Zuberi weaves interview excerpts and stories from many Africans he has met—from refugees to heads of state—with key events in African history to show the importance of understanding Africa today. Tukufu Zuberi is the Lasry Family Professor of Race Relations and professor of sociology and Africana studies at the University of Pennsylvania. He writes and speaks widely about race, both in the United States and internationally, and is a host on the hit PBS series History Detectives. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

Morning in South Africa “Campbell uses the idea of morning . . . to describe post-apartheid South Africa’s progress since 1994. The country’s history from settlement by Europeans in 1652 to the death of Nelson Mandela in 2013 occupies a significant portion of the book. . . . Valuable comparisons are made between Jim Crow in the U.S. and apartheid.” —Publishers Weekly “I can’t think of any scholar who is more qualified to provide a thorough analysis of South Africa’s past, present, and future than John Campbell.” —Herman J. Cohen, U.S. Ambassador (retired) “Campbell’s case is beyond convincing—it is proof positive that South Africa will advance at its own pace, in its own time—but advance, none the less.” —Daniel Whitman, American University This incisive, deeply informed book introduces post-apartheid South Africa to an international audience. Despite calls to undermine the 1994 political settlement characterized by human rights guarantees and the rule of law, distinguished diplomat John Campbell argues that the country’s future is bright and that its democratic institutions will weather its current lackluster governance.

Israel’s Return to History

His Later Years in the Political Wilderness

The Hebrew Republic

Ben-Gurion

By Colin Shindler

By Avi Shilon

“The Hebrew Republic can and should be read by two different publics. Lay leaders will find a magisterial, insightful, panoramic look at Israel’s history and politics embedded in the broader context of modern Jewish history and the dominant global trends of the time. Specialists will find a series of original and innovative essays on some of the most significant aspects of Israeli history and life. A must read; a rewarding read.” —Itamar Rabinovich, The Israel Institute, Washington and Tel Aviv

“This is a fascinating biography, both for what it reveals about a statesman in his years of decline and for its insights into decisive moments in Israel’s history. A translation from Hebrew, this [is a] perceptive and engaging study. . . . Recommended.” —CHOICE “Avi Shilon has uncovered a little known period in Israeli history—warts and all. . . . He has reminded us of Ben-Gurion’s uniqueness, his flaws and his greatness.” —Fathom

The book relates individual episodes from the saga of Israel instead of narrating a formal, conventional history up to the present day. Each section deals with a different aspect of this journey through the decades. The subjects do not cover old ground and are intentionally revelatory as they relate the history of Israel in a vivid, engaging way.

This is the first in-depth account of the later years of David Ben-Gurion (1886–1973), Israel’s first prime minister and founding father. Based on his personal archives and interviews with his intimate friends and family, the book provides an examination of the decisive moments in the annals of Zionism through the lens of Ben-Gurion’s world view.

From the “Great Arab Revolt” against Ottoman rule in World War I to the upheavals of the Arab Spring, this text analyzes a century of modern Arab history through the lens of three intertwined notions: the idea of a single Arab nation, the reality of multiple Arab states, and the competition between them over both concrete and symbolic interests.

This timely book takes the historic restoration of diplomatic ties between Cuba and the United States in 2015 as the point of departure for a Cuban perspective on future relations. Tracing the history of the long and contentious relationship, Francisco López Segrera analyzes the pre-revolutionary and Cold-War periods as well as more recent changes within each nation and in the international environment that led to the diplomatic opening and the abandonment of regime change as the goal of U.S. policy. He considers factors such as the declining influence of hard-line Cuban exiles in the United States; almost universal calls from Latin America, Europe, and other U.S. allies for constructive diplomatic engagement; and the economic restructuring underway in Cuba following the crisis of the “Special Period” triggered by the collapse of the Soviet Union. Francisco López Segrera was permanent secretary and interim president of the Cuban Commission of UNESCO and deputy rector, Institute of International Relations, Havana, Cuba, where he is currently adjoint titular professor of the Institute of International Relations, Havana.

Dean Acheson was the most influential American diplomat of the twentieth century. He shaped the pivotal shift in American foreign policy from isolation to engagement in global affairs. This critical re-evaluation of Acheson’s public career analyzes his advocacy of intervention against Germany and Japan in 1939–1941, work on sanctions against Japan in 1941, contribution to the creation of new international institutions, and campaigns to secure the support of Congress and the American public. It scrutinizes his crucial role in the Truman Doctrine, the Marshall Plan, NATO, the formation of democratic governments in Germany and Japan, and involvement in the Korean War. It examines his advice on Europe and Vietnam to presidents Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon. Acheson was the architect of the policy of containing the Soviet Union that endured to the end of the Cold War.

Insurgency and Counterinsurgency By Jeremy Black

“The problem of insurgencies and how to defeat them still poses tremendous challenges to modern militaries. Industrial weapons, modern systems of organization, and now computerized information have all proven elusive as war winners against adaptive insurgents. Jeremy Black brings muchneeded historical perspective to this problem, which will be invaluable for all who wrestle with trying to understand where insurgents come from and how to reduce the threat they pose.” —Michael S. Neiberg, author of Potsdam “A masterful survey from the Roman Empire to present-day Syria. Jeremy Black not only discusses the historical evolution of armed rebellions and COIN but also throws light on their probable nature in the near future. ” —Kaushik Roy, Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India, and Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), Norway “Jeremy Black does it again in this comprehensively researched, clearly presented analysis of insurgency and counterinsurgency in a global historical context. A major resource for courses and individual readers alike.” —Dennis Showalter, Colorado College This timely book offers a world history of insurgencies and of counterinsurgency warfare. Jeremy Black moves beyond the conventional Western-centric narrative, reaching back to antiquity to trace the pre-modern origins of war within states. His sweeping study will be essential reading for all students of military history. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

Air Power

By Jeremy Black

“Combining conceptual insight with clear, readable descriptions of technology, Jeremy Black describes how air power evolved from modest beginnings into a major national instrument of both deterrence and compellence. By covering the societal and psychological aspects of air warfare as well as air power’s hundred-year history of delivering air superiority, situational awareness, maneuver and strike, this excellent book fills a real void in the existing literature. Highly recommended.” —Col. Prof. John Andreas Olsen, Royal Norwegian Air Force “Jeremy Black’s Air Power is destined to be the go-to book on the subject. While inspiring in its breadth and scope, the work does not lose sight of the key issues that propelled the development of military aviation such as leadership, technological advances, and political considerations.” —Jason W. Warren, U.S. Army War College This essential book offers a compelling and original interpretation of the rise of military aviation. Jeremy Black, one of the world’s finest scholars of military history, provides a lucid analysis of the use of airpower over land and sea both during the two world wars and the more limited wars of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Woodrow Wilson is often considered one of the greatest presidents in American history because, in the first two years of his presidency, he succeeded on many fronts. However, acclaimed author and historian Richard Striner now makes the case that a presidency that is too often idealized was full of missteps and failures that profoundly affected America’s politics and people long after it ended.

The Incredible Stand of the 26th Cavalry

The End of the American Century

The Doomed Horse Soldiers of Bataan By Raymond G. Woolfe, Jr. Introduction by Col. Edwin Price Ramsey

This is the story of the last mounted American troops to see action in battle, when, in late 1941, six-hundred men and their horses held off the Japanese invasion of Luzon in the Philippines just long enough to allow General Douglas MacArthur’s forces to withdraw to Bataan. The 26th continued to fight on horseback until late February 1942 when, tragically, they were ordered dismounted and their horses and mules transferred to the Quartermaster’s center and slaughtered for food for the defenders. It is on record that the 26th troopers refused to accept meat rations from their animals, regardless of their own starvation. This stirring account of a little-known aspect of the Philippine campaign is military history at its best. A lifelong horseman, Raymond G. Woolfe, Jr., was a professional steeplechase rider by the time he was sixteen. A licensed trainer, manager of horse farms, and designer of racecourses and thoroughbred facilities, he is the author of the bestselling Secretariat. He is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran.

Harold Innis Reflects

Geopolitical Constructs

The Mulberry Harbours, World War Two, and the Making of a Militarized Transatlantic By Colin Flint

Memoir and WWI Writings/Correspondence

Edited by William J. Buxton, Michael R. Cheney, and Paul Heyer Foreword by Anne Innis Dagg “[A] gem of a collection related to the early life of Canada’s most famous social scientist.” — Jim Mochoruk, University of North Dakota

“Colin Flint takes a crucial military event and contextualizes it in all its political, economic, and social complexity. The result of this wellresearched study is an invaluable addition to our understanding of a widely known event that is both convincing and illuminating.” —Peter Taylor, emeritus, Northumbria University Using unknown archival material to give voice to those who made the Mulberry Harbours to supply the military advance after D-Day and implemented a global military strategy in World War II, this book brings the “big picture” back to geopolitics, showing how the everyday actions of individuals made, and were made by, geopolitical settings. Colin Flint is a political geographer and professor in the Department of Political Science, Utah State University.

Revealing aspects of Harold Adam Innis’s character that have largely escaped the attention of his biographers, this volume brings together Innis’s previously unpublished autobiographical memoir, a selection of his WWI correspondence, and his thesis, “The Returned Soldier.” William J. Buxton is professor of communication studies at Concordia University. Michael R. Cheney is professor of communication and associate professor of economics at the University of Illinois Springfield.

Sacred Bliss

By Mark S. Ferrara

“Ferrara examines how cannabis has informed the history of religions, tracing this history geographically to show the ways that Indians, Middle Easterners, Chinese, Africans, and Native Americans have variously incorporated cannabis as a psychoactive, medicinal, or textile plant throughout most of human history.” —Publishers Weekly “[Ferrara’s message is] warmhearted and inviting.” —The Washington Post “As it turns out, the hippies were right. More than a recreational drug, more than a tonic for physical ills, marijuana has always been medicine for the spirit. Mark Ferrara’s Sacred Bliss is far and away the best available study of the drug’s neglected spiritual history. I recommend it highly.” —John Charles Chasteen, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, author of Getting High Sacred Bliss demonstrates that throughout religious history, cannabis has offered access to increased imagination and creativity, heightened perspective and insight, and deeper levels of thought.

Americans and the Birth of Israel tells the dramatic story of how a ragtag group of Americans of all religions worked, often in secret and facing the possibility of arrest and imprisonment, to make sure that after the Holocaust a refuge for Jews would be born. It is a story that is not well-known but deserves to be. The book tells the story of how Americans raised money, gathered munitions, ships, and planes, rescued Holocaust survivors and sneaked them past the British patrols, helped Israel prepare militarily, engaged in dramatic political efforts in Washington and the United Nations to secure Israeli statehood, participated in cultural activities to support the Zionist cause, and in other ways made a decisive difference in allowing Israel to be born.

Transnationalism and the Jews

From Peter to the Present

“Meticulously researched and brilliantly argued, this timely and pertinent book restores historical depth and conceptual clarity to ‘transnationalism’.” —Axel Stähler, University of Kent

By John W. O’Malley, SJ (Georgetown University) “Readers eager for a breezy survey of papal history will be pleased.” —Publishers Weekly “John W. O’Malley provides a short, clear . . . direct, and readable but still informative history of popes and the papacy.” —The Catholic Historical Review

The concept of transnationalism has been widely used for many years to describe mobility and cross-border relations in the modern, globalized world. Most uses of the concept of transnationalism neglect its historical trajectory and largely ignore the networks that constructed its meaning and normativity. Transnationalism and the Jews directly relates ideas about transnationalism and cultural pluralism to Jewish historical experience. Jakob Egholm Feldt is associate professor of transnational and global history at Roskilde University. Rowman & Littlefield International

“A fine example of a successful synthesis of a vast and complicated topic.

Nazi Hunger Politics

From JFK and Margaret Thatcher, to Charles Darwin and Fidel Castro, the lives of leaders, rebels, heroes, and outlaws continue to fascinate us. But like everyone else, these figures had their favorite foods. This journey into the preferred meals and snacks of various historical figures offers a peek at an oft-forgotten aspect of their lives.

A History of Food in the Third Reich By Gesine Gerhard

“[T]his excellent volume, based on original diaries, interviews, and outstanding research, examines the use and misuse of food, which may indeed have been Nazi Germany’s justification for the war itself. . . . Highly recommended.” —CHOICE “This is an important book for historians of rural Europe in the twentieth century and for anyone who still wonders why Hitler invaded the Soviet Union.” —Paul Brassley, University of Exeter Telling the story of the Nazis’ plan to kill millions of people in the German-occupied eastern territories, this book examines food politics during the Third Reich. Gesine Gerhard explores the economics of food production and consumption in Nazi Germany, as well as its use as a justification for war and as a tool for genocide.
