Fires of hatred : ethnic cleansing in twentieth-century Europe by Norman M Naimark( Book )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Italian and held by 1,623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Norman M. Naimark, provides a history of ethnic cleansing and its relationship to genocide and population transfer. Focusing on five specific cases, he exposes the myths about ethnic cleansing, in particular the commonly held belief that the practice stems from ancient hatreds. Naimark traces its roots to European nationalism of the late nineteenth century, but he points out that its most virulent expression is found in the twentieth century, as modern states and societies began to organize themselves by ethnic criteria. The most obvious example is the Nazi attack on the Jews that culminated in the Holocaust. Naimark also discusses the Armenian genocide of 1915 and the expulsion of Greeks from Anatolia during the Greco-Turkish War of 1921-22; the Soviet forced deportation of the Chechens-Ingush and the Crimean Tatars in 1944; the Polish and Czechoslovak expulsion of the Germans in 1944-47; and the wars of Yugoslav succession in Bosnia and Kosovo." "In this history, Naimark reveals how over and over, as racism and religious hatreds picked up an ethnic name tag, war provided a cover for violence and mayhem, an evil tapestry behind which nations acted with impunity."--Jacket
The Russians in Germany : a history of the Soviet Zone of occupation, 1945-1949 by Norman M Naimark( Book )

30 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1945, when the Red Army marched in, eastern Germany was not "occupied" but "liberated." This, until the recent collapse of the Soviet Bloc, is what passed for history in the German Democratic Republic. Now, making use of newly opened archives in Russia and Germany, Norman Naimark reveals what happened during the Soviet occupation of eastern Germany from 1945 through 1949. His book offers a comprehensive look at Soviet policies in the occupied zone and their practical consequences for Germans and Russians alike - and, ultimately, for postwar Europe. In rich and lucid detail, Naimark captures the mood and the daily reality of the occupation, the chaos and contradictions of a period marked by rape and repression, the plundering of factories, the exploitation of German science, and the rise of the East German police state
Stalin's genocides by Norman M Naimark( Book )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between the early 1930s and his death in 1953, Joseph Stalin had more than a million of his own citizens executed. Millions more fell victim to forced labor, deportation, famine, bloody massacres, and detention and interrogation by Stalin's henchmen. Stalin's Genocides is the chilling story of these crimes. The book puts forward the important argument that brutal mass killings under Stalin in the 1930s were indeed acts of genocide and that the Soviet dictator himself was behind them. Norman Naimark, one of our most respected authorities on the Soviet era, challenges the widely held notion that

A question of genocide : Armenians and Turks at the end of the Ottoman Empire( Book )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One hundred years after the deportations and mass murder of Armenians, Greeks, Assyrians, and other peoples in the final years of the Ottoman Empire, the history of the Armenian genocide is a victim of historical distortion, state-sponsored falsification, and deep divisions between Armenians and Turks. Working together for the first time, Turkish, Armenian, and other scholars present here a compelling reconstruction of what happened and why. This volume gathers the most up-to-date scholarship on the Armenian genocide, looking at how the event has been written about in Western and Turkish historiographies; what was happening on the eve of the catastrophe; portraits of the perpetrators; detailed accounts of the massacres; how the event has been perceived in both local and international contexts, including World War I; and reflections on the broader implications of what happened then. The result is a comprehensive work that moves beyond nationalist master narratives and offers a more complete understanding of this tragic event."--Jacket
Yugoslavia and its historians : understanding the Balkan wars of the 1990s by Norman M Naimark( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The establishment of communist regimes in Eastern Europe, 1944-1949( Book )

14 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The collaborative effort of scholars from Russia and the United States, this book reevaluates the history of postwar Eastern Europe from 1944 to 1949, incorporating information gleaned from newly opened archives in Eastern Europe. For nearly five decades, the countries of Yugoslavia, Poland, Albania, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and the Soviet zone of Germany were forced to live behind the "iron curtain." Though their experiences under communism differed in sometimes fundamental ways and lasted no longer than a single generation, these nations were characterized by systematic assaults on individual rights and social institutions that profoundly shaped the character of Eastern Europe today. The emergence of the former People's Democracies from behind the iron curtain has been a wrenching process, but, as this book demonstrates, the beginning of the communist era was just as traumatic as its end."--Jacket

Reexamining the Soviet experience : essays in honor of Alexander Dallin( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These stimulating essays, written by some of the field's finest historian and political scientists, invite discussion and reflection on matters of theory and practice in view of the USSR's demise. How did we study the Soviet Union before, and in what ways must we adjust our approaches and habits to take account of new opportunities and pitfalls? How do current developments in the USSR's successor states alter or deepen our understanding of the Soviet experience? These questions are explored here and thorough examinations of specific problems that arose during the contributors' recent research and writing as well as the emergence and evolution of the field of Soviet studies and in the development of the Soviet social and political institutions themselves. Readers will be challenged to take stock of their own preconceptions about and approaches to studying this complex and rapidly changing region

A study of genocide and ethnic cleansing( Visual )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unfortunately, since the unthinkable Holocaust against Jewish people during World War II, genocide continues to occur; examples include Bosnia, Rwanda and Darfur. For this single reason alone, we must continue to study and learn about genocide and ethnic cleansing, as difficult as that can be; hoping, through learning, that somehow horrible acts against humanity can be ended. Norman Naimark, is a Professor of History at Stanford University, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and an author; two of his books include The Russians in Germany: The History of the Soviet Zone of Occupation, 1945-1949 and Fires of Hatred: Ethnic Cleansing in 20th Century Europe. He specializes in modern East European history, genocide and ethnic cleansing, and in this program examines the psychological and strategic motivations of groups of people whose goal is to exterminate, rather than simply conquer, enemies
