Disease and history by Frederick F Cartwright( Book )

50 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores the impact of disease on the processes of history. Drawing upon little-known evidence, the authors trace the influence of disease on the civilizations, the armies, and the leaders that dominate history. They demonstrate that even the most powerful individuals and societies can be and have been fatally weakened by disease." "Each era has made some progress against physical and mental disorders, only to be faced with new and unforeseen threats - for instance HIV/AIDS in our own time. Looking into the future, the authors discuss the various forms of pathology that may attack contemporary civilization - many of them by-products of our advanced technology. They warn that, no less than other generations, we are all too vulnerable to widespread outbreaks of disease. Revised, updated, and completely reset, the second edition of this classic of medical history is a must for anyone interested in illness and disease or fascinated by the hand that fate has taken in human history."--BOOK JACKET

Thatcherism : personality and politics by Kenneth R Minogue( Book )

10 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Thatcherism', as attitude of mind and style of action, has dominated the agenda and tone of British politics during the 1980s. Supporters and critics alike have acknowledged the bold scope of the campaign launched by the Prime Minister 'to change the heart and soul' of the nation. Here nine contributors, of differing political persuasion, come together to offer a variety of approaches to, and conclusions about, 'the Thatcher Phenomenon'. Their essays review the concept of Thatcherism; its impact on the Conservative Party and on the forces of Opposition; its effect on Cabinet government and on society at large; its significance in terms of economic and foreign policy; and the validity of the claim that its record entitles it to enjoy some truly historic status

Themes in modern European history, 1780-1830 by Pamela M Pilbeam( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Themes in Modern European History 1780-1830" is an authoritative and lively exploration of a period dominated by events which have shaped modern Europe. The chapters are written by six leading academics who present such controversial conclusions as: the east/west contrast in European today has more to do with responses to the French Revolution of 1789 than the Russian Revolution of 1917; and the conservative Europe of 1814 was the product of the Romantic imagination, not a "Restoration" of the old regime. Spanning political, social, economic and demographic facets of revolutions, this textbook is intended for all students of the 19th century, and for all those interested in understanding the nature of Europe today.; Pilbeam has also published "Republicanism in France 1814-71" (1994), "The 1830 Revolution in France" (1991), and "The Middle Classes in Europe 1789-1814" (1990). Alexander has also published "Bonapartism and the Revolutionary Tradition in France" (1991). Biddiss is also author of "Thatcher, Personality and Politics" (1987), and "The Nuremburg Trial and the Third Reich" (1992). Heywood is also author of "The Development of the French Economy 1750-1914" (1992). Simms is also author of "The Impact of Napoleon" (1995)
