Описание: The French writer Francois Mauriac once predicted that when de Gaulle will be here no longer, he will still be here. This insight has proved prophetic. In contemporary France, Charles de Gaulle has become a figure of legend, consistently acclaimed as the nation's pre-eminent historical figure. Central to this popularity is the recognition of his pivotal role as the founder, and then the leader, of the Resistance movement during the Second World War. Once might be tempted to conclude that it is the man who became mythical, not the institutions he created. But here, the paradoxes abound. For one thing, his personal popularity sits oddly with his social origins and professional background. Neither the nobility, nor the Catholic Church, nor the Army is particularly well-regarded in France today: in their different ways, they all symbolize antiquated traditions and values. So why, then, do the French nonetheless identify with, celebrate, and even revere this austere

Описание: In an engaging and original contribution to the field of memory studies, Joy Damousi considers the enduring impact of war on family memory in the Greek diaspora. Focusing on Australia's Greek immigrants in the aftermath of the Second World War and the Greek Civil War, the book explores the concept of remembrance within the larger context of migration to show how intergenerational experience of war and trauma transcend both place and nation. Drawing from the most recent research in memory, trauma and transnationalism, Memory and Migration in the Shadow of War deals with the continuities and discontinuities of war stories, assimilation in modern Australia, politics and activism, child migration and memories of mothers and children in war. Damousi sheds new light on aspects of forgotten memory and silence within families and communities, and in particular the ways in which past experience of violence and tragedy is both negotiated and processed.

Описание: The Yugoslav state of the interwar period was a child of the Great European War. Its borders were superimposed onto a topography of conflict and killing, for it housed many war veterans who had served or fought in opposing armies (those of the Central Powers and the Entente) during the war. These veterans had been adversaries but after 1918 became fellow subjects of a single state, yet in many cases they carried into peace the divisions of the war years. John Paul Newman tells their story, showing how the South Slav state was unable to escape out of the shadow cast by the First World War. Newman reveals how the deep fracture left by war cut across the fragile states of 'New Europe' in the interwar period, worsening their many political and social problems, and bringing the region into a new conflict at the end of the interwar period.

Описание: After enduring untold suffering and near total devastation, the Soviet Union emerged from the ashes of World War II as a superpower. Even now, the Great Patriotic War constitutes the country's single greatest source of national pride and identity - a defining moment in Russian history no less significant than the Revolution of 1917. Yet just as the overthrow of Tsarist autocracy is fraught with ambiguities, so too is the legacy of World War II. After liberating itself from Nazi occupation, the Soviet Union established imperial domination over much of east-central Europe. But a victorious Soviet society was also poor, hungry, and - for all intents and purposes - still enslaved by the communist regime. The Shadow of War: The Soviet Union and Russia, 1941 to the Present offers a fresh approach to modern Soviet and Russian history. Taking the achievements, ambiguities, and legacies of the Second World War as a point of departure, the book reveals the strains of the Soviet system in the postwar decades as it distanced itself from Stalinist repression and reinvented itself as a form of illiberal modern welfare state. The author shows how tens of millions of people moved from villages to cities to reap the benefits of modern civilization while Soviet society remained divided along strict class, regional, and ethnic lines - divisions that drew into sharp focus with the collapse of the Soviet Union. Utilizing the latest research and a wide range of sources, The Shadow of War greatly enhances our understanding of Soviet and Russian history during one of the most complex and fascinating eras of human history.

Описание: Counterculture icon and best-selling author of the anti-authoritarian novels One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest and Sometimes a Great Notion, Ken Kesey said he was too young to be a beatnik and too old to be a hippie. It s All a Kind of Magic is the first biography of Kesey. It reveals a youthful life of brilliance and eccentricity that encompassed wrestling, writing, farming, magic and ventriloquism, CIA-funded experiments with hallucinatory drugs, and a notable cast of characters that would come to include Wallace Stegner, Larry McMurtry, Tom Wolfe, Neal Cassady, Timothy Leary, the Grateful Dead, and Hunter S. Thompson. Based on meticulous research and many interviews with friends and family, Rick Dodgson s biography documents Kesey s early life, from his time growing up in Oregon through his college years, his first drug experiences, and the writing of his most famous books. While a graduate student in creative writing at Stanford University in the late 1950s and early 1960s, Kesey worked the night shift at the Menlo Park Veterans Administration hospital, where he earned extra money taking LSD and other psychedelic drugs for medical studies. Soon he and his bohemian crowd of friends were using the same substances to conduct their own experiments, exploring the frontiers of their minds and testing the boundaries of their society. With the success of One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest, Kesey moved to La Honda, California, in the foothills of San Mateo County, creating a scene that Hunter S. Thompson remembered as the world capital of madness. There, Kesey and his growing band of Merry Prankster friends began hosting psychedelic parties and living a hippie lifestyle before anyone knew what that meant. Tom Wolfe s book The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test mythologized Kesey s adventures in the 1960s. Illustrated with rarely seen photographs, It s All a Kind of Magic depicts a precocious young man brimming with self-confidence and ambition who through talent, instinct, and fearless spectacle made his life into a performance, a wild magic act that electrified American and world culture. Rick Dodgson has pored over Kesey s published and unpublished writings, interviews, and historical records to write a colorful biography of this charismatic American character. The resulting portrayal challenges assumptions about Kesey s place in the counterculture. Journal of American History Dodgson s painstaking research unearths hidden gems of Kesey s life that marked him as a fascinating figure. H-Net"
