Statistics and the German state, 1900-1945 : the making of modern economic knowledge by J. Adam Tooze( )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 2,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"J. Adam Tooze provides an interpretation of the dramatic period of statistical innovation between 1900 and the end of World War II. At the turn of the century, virtually none of the economic statistics that we take for granted today were available. By 1944, the entire repertoire of modern economic statistics was being put to work in wartime economic management. As this book reveals, the Weimar Republic and the Third Reich were in the forefront of statistical innovation in the interwar decades. New ways of measuring the economy were inspired both by contemporary developments in macroeconomic theory and the needs of government. The Weimar Republic invested heavily in macroeconomic research. Under the Nazi regime, these statistical tools were to provide the basis for a radical experiment in economic planning. Based on the German example, this book presents the case for a more wide-ranging reconsideration of the history of modern economic knowledge."--Jacket
The wages of destruction : the making and breaking of the Nazi economy by J. Adam Tooze( Book )

53 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this groundbreaking history, Tooze provides the clearest picture to date of the Nazi war machine and its undoing. There was no aspect of Nazi power untouched by economics--it was Hitler's obsession and the reason the Nazis came to power in the first place. The Second World War was fought, in Hitler's view, to create a European empire strong enough to take on the United States. But as this book makes clear, Hitler's armies were never powerful enough to beat either Britain or the Soviet Union--and Hitler never had a serious plan as to how he might defeat the United States. An eye-opening and controversial account that will challenge conventional interpretations of the period.--From publisher description
The deluge : the Great War, America and the remaking of the global order, 1916-1931 by J. Adam Tooze( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,092 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A searing and highly original analysis of the First World War and its anguished aftermath. In the depths of the Great War, with millions dead and no imaginable end to the conflict, societies around the world began to buckle. The heart of the financial system shifted from London to New York. The infinite demands for men and materiel reached into countries far from the front. The strain of the war ravaged all economic and political assumptions, bringing unheard-of changes in the social and industrial order. A century after the outbreak of fighting, Adam Tooze revisits this seismic moment in history, challenging the existing narrative of the war, its peace, and its aftereffects. From the day the United States enters the war in 1917 to the precipice of global financial ruin, Tooze delineates the world remade by American economic and military power. Tracing the ways in which countries came to terms with America's centrality--including the slide into fascism--The Deluge is a chilling work of great originality that will fundamentally change how we view the legacy of World War I"--

The Cambridge history of the Second World War( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cambridge History of the Second World War is an authoritative new account of the conflict that unfolded between 1939 and 1945. With contributions from a team of leading historians, the three volumes adopt a transnational approach to offer a comprehensive, global analysis of the military, political, sociological, economic and cultural aspects of the war. Volume 1 provides an operational perspective on the course of the war, examining strategies, military cultures and organisation and the key campaigns, whilst Volume 2 reviews the 'politics' of war, the global aspirations of the rival alliances, and the role of diplomacy. Volume 3 considers the war as an economic, social and cultural event, exploring how entire nations mobilized their economies and populations and dealt with the catastrophic losses that followed. The volumes conclude by considering the lasting impact of World War Two and the memory of war across different cultures of commemoration

The volume concludes by considering the lasting impact of the conflict and the memory of war across different cultures of commemoration.0Vol. 3 of a 3 vol. set (ISBN 9781107101777)
Normalität und Fragilität Demokratie nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg by Tim B. Muller;Adam Tooze( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Demokratie ist stets doppelgesichtig, geprägt sowohl von Instabilität als auch von Stabilität. Heute ist es die Fragilität, die mit der Rede von der bedrohten Demokratie in den politischen Vordergrund rückt. Der Blick zurück in die Epoche, in der die Demokratie das politisch Neue war und zur Normalität wurde, als sie in vielen europäischen Gesellschaften gleichzeitig zur Regierungs- und Lebensform wurde, führt nicht nur die Bedingungen für den Zusammenbruch von Demokratien vor Augen, sondern eröffnet vor allem Einsichten in die erstaunliche Wandlungs- und Handlungsfähigkeit von Demokratien, die sie auch extreme ökonomische und politische Krisen überstehen ließ.

Crashed : how a decade of financial crises changed the world by J. Adam Tooze( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From a prizewinning economic historian, an eye-opening reinterpretation of the 2008 economic crisis (and its ten-year aftermath) as a global event that directly led to the shockwaves being felt around the world today.In September 2008 President George Bush could still describe the financial crisis as an incident local to Wall Street. In fact it was a dramatic caesura of global significance that spiraled around the world, from the financial markets of the UK and Europe to the factories and dockyards of Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America, forcing a rearrangement of global governance. In the United States and Europe, it caused a fundamental reconsideration of capitalist democracy, eventually leading to the war in the Ukraine, the chaos of Greece, Brexit, and Trump. It was the greatest crisis to have struck Western societies since the end of the Cold War, but was it inevitable? And is it over? Crashed is a dramatic new narrative resting on original themes: the haphazard nature of economic development and the erratic path of debt around the world; the unseen way individual countries and regions are linked together in deeply unequal relationships through financial interdependence, investment, politics, and force; the ways the financial crisis interacted with the spectacular rise of social media, the crisis of middle-class America, the rise of China, and global struggles over fossil fuels. Finally, Tooze asks, given this history, what now are the prospects for a liberal, stable, and coherent world order?

Le débarquement : de l'événement à l'épopée : Actes du colloque organisé par le Centre de recherche d'histoire quantitative au Mémorial de Caen du 21 au 23 mai 2014( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Qu'on l'appelle "D-Day", "Jour J", "6 Juin" ou "Débarquement", nulle autre précision n'est nécessaire pour évoquer l'offensive alliée en Normandie en 1944, alors même que de nombreuses opérations militaires de ce type ont été menées au cours de la Seconde Guerre mondiale et que le sort de l'Allemagne nazie s'est joué sur le front de l'Est. Quelles sont les raisons qui expliquent que cette bataille - une parmi tant d'autres qui ont émaillé les conflits du XXe siècle - a d'emblée revêtu une dimension historique pour les contemporains ? Pourquoi précisément cette opération militaire est-elle désormais régulièrement commémorée par autant de chefs d'Etat sous le regard des télévisions du monde entier ? Comment expliquer le statut si particulier acquis par cet événement au fil des décennies, jusqu'au projet d'inscription des plages du Débarquement au patrimoine de l'Unesco ? En revenant à la dramatisation des enjeux d'une bataille annoncée près de quatre années à l'avance, mais aussi aux ressorts politiques, idéologiques, économiques et culturels qui ont contribué à transcender l'événement en épopée, cet ouvrage s'interroge sur la quête d'identité de chacun des acteurs nationaux à travers l'évolution de leur mémoire. Ainsi peut-on mieux comprendre la surprenante transformation de l'épisode guerrier en symbole universel de paix et de liberté." (4e de couv.)

Wirtschaftsgeschichte als Kulturgeschichte : Dimensionen eines Perspektivenwechsels by Christoph Conrad( )

1 edition published in 2004 in German and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HauptbeschreibungWirtschaftsbeziehungen sind Tauschbeziehungen und beruhen auf kulturell geprägten Regeln, die durch Werte oder Emotionen Verbindlichkeit gewinnen - etwa dadurch, dass die Partner sich vertrauen. Umso erstaunlicher, dass Wirtschafts- und Kulturgeschichte einander kaum zur Kenntnis nehmen. In diesem Band werden klassische Themen der Wirtschaftsgeschichte aus kulturgeschichtlicher Perspektive behandelt. Die Autorinnen und Autoren gehen davon aus, dass die Wirtschaft (von ökonomischen Theorien bis hin zur Managementkultur) von der Kultur beeinflusst wird. Zugleich wirkt die Ökonom
