41 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author of fourteen books, Charles Maier is one of the most prominent contemporary scholars of European history. Recasting Bourgeois Europe, his first book, presented an unparalleled analysis of the crucial decade in Europe after 1918. Based on extensive archival research in each of the three countries, the book examined how European societies progressed from a moment of social vulnerability to one of political and economic stabilization. Recasting Bourgeois Europe accomplished two major historiographical goals simultaneously. First, Maier provided a comparative history of three different E
Dissolution : the crisis of Communism and the end of East Germany by Charles S Maier ( Book )
19 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 1,386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Against the backdrop of one of the great transformations of our century, the sudden and unexpected fall of communism as a ruling system, Charles Maier recounts the history and demise of East Germany. Dissolution is his poignant, analytically provocative account of the decline and fall of the late German Democratic Republic.This book explains the powerful causes for the disintegration of German communism as it constructs the complex history of the GDR. Maier looks at the turning points in East Germany's forty-year history and at the mix of coercion and consent by which the regime functioned. He analyzes the GDR as it evolved from the purges of the 1950s to the peace movements and emerging youth culture of the 1980s, and then turns his attention to charges of Stasi collaboration that surfaced after 1989. In the context of describing the larger collapse of communism, Maier analyzes German elements that had counterparts throughout the Soviet bloc, including its systemic and eventually terminal economic crisis, corruption and privilege in the SED, the influence of the Stasi and the plight of intellectuals and writers, and the slow loss of confidence on the part of the ruling elite. He then discusses the mass protests and proliferation of dissident groups in 1989, the collapse of the ruling party, and the troubled aftermath of unification.Dissolution is the first book that spans the communist collapse and the ensuing process of unification, and that draws on newly available archival documents from the last phases of the GDR, including Stasi reports, transcripts of Politburo and Central Committee debates, and papers from the Economic Planning Commission, the Council of Ministers, and the office files of key party officials. This book is further bolstered by Maier's extensive knowledge of European history and the Cold War, his personal observations and conversations with East Germans during the country's dramatic transition, and memoirs and other eyewitness accounts published during the four-decade history of the GDR

Has liberalism failed women? : assuring equal representation in Europe and the United States ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book comes out of a conference in April of 1999 at the Center for European Studies at Harvard University on the topic of 'Gender Parity and the Liberal Tradition: Proposals and Debates in Europe and the United States.' It is a collection of short essays that attempt to capture the theoretical arguments and policy changes presented at the conference. The essays are divided into three sections, each of which approaches from a different angle the central question of whether liberalism has failed women. The first section aims to frame the discussion by outlining the theoretical arguments for the amendments or revisions implied by the proponents of the Parity Movement in Europe and for the concerns raised by critics. The second describes recent changes in party rules, European legal framework, and national constitutions, as well as the gains made by women in response to rule change. The third section provides American perspectives on the lessons that parity advocates might draw from affirmative action policies and speculations about how parity rules would work in the American context. The essays are drawn from top European and American scholars."--Publisher description

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Zwischen 1870 und 1945 wurde die Welt durch die rasanten Fortschritte in Kommunikation und Transportwesen größer und kleiner zugleich. Neue Technologien verkürzen Entfernungen und beschleunigen den Austausch von Menschen, Produkten und Ideen. Der Band behandelt ein Zeitalter, in dem die wachsende globale Vernetzung nicht nur neue Ambitionen weckte, sondern auch Ängste und Rivalitäten, die sich schließlich in zwei Weltkriegen entluden - den zerstörerischsten Konflikten in der Geschichte der Menschheit. Jeder Beitrag des Bandes erörtert ein zentrales Thema: die Entstehung des modernen Staates und die Entwicklung der internationalen Beziehungen; imperiale Begegnungen und Konfrontationen; Bevölkerung und Migration; Weltmärkte und Hochindustrialisierung; transnationale gesellschaftliche und kulturelle Netzwerke. Mit den modernen Staatsformen und den wechselhaften Schicksalen der Imperien verstärkten sich die Anstrengungen, territoriale Grenzen abzustecken und zu kontrollieren. Doch während Menschen, Produkte, Kapital, Technologien und Loyalitäten über diese Absperrungen hinwegströmten, zerbrachen alte politische Ordnungen und mentale Selbstverständlichkeiten - in unerwarteten, oft grauenvollen und manchmal befreienden Eruptionen der Geschichte. "Fünf große Themenkreise verwebt der meisterliche erste Band einer neuen "Geschichte der Welt": Die Erfindung moderner Staatlichkeit, die global agierenden Imperien, das Phänomen der Migration, die Warenketten der globalen Wirtschaft und transnationale Strömungen... Wer sich die nötige Zeit gönnt, dieses wahrhaft große Buch zu erkunden, fühlt sich am Ende wie geläutert. Die Autoren dieses Bandes haben tausende von bunten Fäden unter der Regie der Herausgeberin zu einen meisterlich komponierten Wandteppich verwoben, der unser Wissen über die Epoche unserer unmittelbaren Vorfahren enorm vertieft und nicht nur Respekt einflößt vor ihrem Überlebenswillen und ihren Überlebensstrategien, sondern - ganz dezent - uns auch hilft, die Fehlentwicklungen unserer Gegenwart schärfer zu diagnostizieren" (dradio.de)
