Europe in the sixteenth century by H. G Koenigsberger( Book )

120 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bestselling, seminal book - a general survey of Europe in the era of `Rennaisance and Reformation' - was originally published in Denys Hay's famous Series, `A General History of Europe'. It looks at sixteenth-century Europe as a complex but interconnected whole, rather than as a mosaic of separate states. The authors explore its different aspects through the various political structures of the age - empires, monarchies, city-republics - and how they functioned and related to one another. A strength of the book remains the space it devotes to the growing importance of town-life in t

Nazi culture: intellectual, cultural, and social life in the Third Reich by George L Mosse( Book )

50 editions published between 1966 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What was life like under the Third Reich? What went on between parents and children? What were the prevailing attitudes about sex, morality, religion? How did workers perceive the effects of the New Order in the workplace? What were the cultural currents -- in art, music, science, education, drama, and on the radio? Professor Mosse has recaptured the texture of life and thought using selections from newspapers, novellas, plays, and diaries as well as the public announcements of Nazi leaders, churchmen, and professors to describe National Socialism in practice and what it meant for the average German. - Back cover

The Reformation by George L Mosse( Book )

31 editions published between 1953 and 1983 in English and held by 1,283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Book is an excellent introduction to the main personalities and chronology of the Reformation. The coverage of Martin Luther is brief, but the section on John Calvin and the role of Calvinism to the broader Reformation is quite good. Overall, the book does a good job of covering the Reformation in England. Specifically, Mosse nicely reveals the interplay between religion and politics that resulted in the theological ambiguity of Anglicanism."--Amazon.com

The image of man : the creation of modern masculinity by George L Mosse( Book )

33 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Image of Man, noted historian George L. Mosse provides the first historical account of the masculine stereotype in modern Western culture, tracing the evolution of the idea of manliness to reveal how it came to embody physical beauty, courage, moral restraint, and a strong will. This stereotype, he finds, originated in the tumultuous changes of the eighteenth century, as Europe's dominant aristocrats grudgingly yielded to the rise of the professional, bureaucratic, and commercial middle classes. Mosse reveals how the new bourgeoisie, faced with a bewildering, rapidly industrialized world, latched onto the knightly ideal of chivalry. And he shows how the rise of universal conscription created a soldierly man as an ideal type. In England, the nineteenth century gave rise to an educational system that emphasized athletics, team sports, and physical strength, as did the gymnastics movement on the continent. At the same time, ideals of a standard of masculine beauty developed throughout the continent, intertwined with theories of art and personal comportment. Indeed, in the nineteenth century, the idea of manliness appeared in so many areas of life and thought that it was accepted as a social constant, a permanent endowment granted by nature. Mosse shows, however, that it continued to evolve, particularly in contrast to stereotypes of women and unmanly men - Jews and homosexuals - all considered weak and fearful, unable to control their passions. Mosse concludes that socialism also made use of this stereotype, while in the twentieth century Fascism took this process to its extremes - mass political rallies glorified the fearless storm trooper as outsiders were stigmatized and persecuted
