The Berlin Wall : a world divided, 1961-1989 by Fred Taylor ( Book )
15 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 1,572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One morning in 1961, the residents of East Berlin found themselves cut off from family, friends and jobs in the West by a tangle of barbed wire that ruthlessly cut a city of four million in two. Within days the barbed wire became a 103-mile-long wall guarded by three hundred watchtowers. A physical manifestation of the Cold War that would stand for nearly thirty years, the Berlin Wall was the fault line between East and West on which rested the fate of all humanity. Historian Taylor weaves together official history, archival materials and personal accounts to tell the complete story of the Wall's rise and fall, from the postwar political tensions that created a divided Berlin to the internal and external pressures that led to the Wall's demise. He also explores the geopolitical ramifications, as well as the impact the Wall had on ordinary lives, still felt today.--From publisher description

Exorcising Hitler : the occupation and denazification of Germany by Fred Taylor ( Book )
15 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
British historian Taylor (The Berlin Wall) surveys the occupation policies of the Allied victors, showing a variegated picture: brutal in the Soviet zone, relatively humane in the American, British, and French sectors, but everywhere a landscape of hunger, cold, and--in German eyes--humiliation. Taylor also examines how the efforts to bring to account millions of ex-Nazi Party members were erratic, corrupt, and ineffective

The Berlin Wall : 13 August 1961-9 November 1989 by Fred Taylor ( Book )
18 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and German and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The appearance of a hastily-constructed barbed wire entanglement through the heart of Berlin during the night of 12-13 August 1961 was both dramatic and unexpected. Within days, it had started to metamorphose into a structure that would come to symbolise the brutal insanity of the Cold War: the Berlin Wall. A city of almost four million was cut ruthlessly in two, unleashing a potentially catastrophic East-West crisis and plunging the entire world for the first time into the fear of imminent missile-borne apocalypse. This threat would vanish only when the very people the Wall had been built to imprison, breached it on the historic night of 9 November 1989. Frederick Taylor's eagerly awaited new book reveals the strange and chilling story of how the initial barrier system was conceived, then systematically extended, adapted and strengthened over almost thirty years. Patrolled by vicious dogs and by guards on shoot-to-kill orders, the Wall, with its more than 300 towers, became a wired and lethally booby-trapped monument to a world torn apart by fiercely antagonistic ideologies. The Wall had tragic consequences in personal and political terms, affecting the lives of Germans and non-Germans alike in a myriad of cruel, inhuman and occasionally absurd ways. The Berlin Wall is the definitive account of a divided city and its people
The downfall of money : Germany's hyperinflation and the destruction of the middle class by Fred Taylor ( Book )
12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A hundred years ago, many theorists believed--just as they did at the beginning of our twenty-first century--that the world had reached a state of economic perfection, a never before seen human interdependence that would lead to universal growth and prosperity. Then, as now, the German mark was one of the most trusted currencies in the world. Yet the early years of the Weimar Republic in Germany witnessed the most calamitous meltdown of a developed economy in modern times. The Downfall of Money will tell anew the dramatic story of the hyperinflation that saw the mark--worth 4.2 to the dollar in 1914--plunge until it traded at over 4 trillion to 1 by the autumn of 1923. The story of the Weimar Republic's financial crisis clearly resonates today, when the world is again anxious about what money is, what it means, and how we can judge if its value is true. It is a trajectory of events uncomfortably relevant for our own uncertain world. Frederick Taylor--one of the leading historians of Germany writing today-- explores the causes of the crisis and what the collapse meant to ordinary people and traces its connection to the dark decades that followed. Drawing on a wide range of sources and accessibly presenting vast amounts of research, The Downfall of Money is a timely and chilling exploration of a haunting episode in history"--

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Im September 1944 betrat erstmals ein amerikanischer Soldat deutschen Boden, einen Monat später wurde Aachen als erste grosse Stadt besetzt. Deutschlands Stunde Null hatte begonnen, und von nun an sahen sich die Alliierten völlig neuen Herausforderungen ausgesetzt. Noch während deutsche Truppen in erbitterten Kämpfen niedergeschlagen wurden, mussten die Eroberungen gesichert werden, galt es, der kritischen Situation in den überfüllten Gefangenenlagern Herr zu werden, waren Millionen Flüchtlinge aus Mittel- und Osteuropa aufzunehmen. Und vor allem: Die nationalsozialistische Ideologie sollte so schnell wie möglich aus dem Leben der Deutschen verschwinden. Politische Führer mussten entmachtet und zur Verantwortung gezogen werden, und zugleich war das zivile Leben neu zu organisieren. Für all das gab es keinen Masterplan. Deutschland, so Frederick Taylor, war für die westlichen Besatzungsmächte zunächst wie ein leeres Blatt. Eindringlich zeichnet er nach, wie dann jedoch die Lernprozesse begannen und ein fundamentaler Bewusstseinswandel einsetzte.Zwischen Krieg und Frieden erzählt diese dramatischen zwei Jahre deutscher Geschichte aus der Perspektive der Besatzer und der Besetzten, aus der Sicht der militärischen und politischen Führer wie der einfachen Menschen. Es ist ein beeindruckend vielstimmiges Bild, das nuancenreiche Panorama einer Umbruchzeit, in der nicht weniger als die Voraussetzungen für eine neue Gesellschaft geschaffen wurden
