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

22 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Italian and held by 1,647 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

16 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prominent Westen and Russian scholars examine the 'lost' transcripts of the Soviet Politburo, a set of verbatim accounts of meetings that took place from the 1920s to 1938 but remained hidden in secret archives until the late 1990s
A question of genocide : Armenians and Turks at the end of the Ottoman Empire( )

20 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 1,332 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
The Russians in Germany : a history of the Soviet Zone of occupation, 1945-1949 by Norman M Naimark( Book )

35 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and Italian and held by 1,263 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 993 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
Genocide : a world history by Norman M Naimark( Book )

13 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Genocide occurs in every time period and on every continent. Using the 1948 U.N. definition of genocide as its departure point, this book examines the main episodes in the history of genocide from the beginning of human history to the present. Norman M. Naimark lucidly shows that genocide both changes over time, depending on the character of major historical periods, and remains the same in many of its murderous dynamics. He examines cases of genocide as distinct episodes of mass violence, but also in historical connection with earlier episodes. Unlike much of the literature in genocide studies, Naimark argues that genocide can also involve the elimination of targeted social and political groups, providing an insightful analysis of communist and anti-communist genocide. He pays special attention to settler (sometimes colonial) genocide as a subject of major concern, illuminating how deeply the elimination of indigenous peoples, especially in Africa, South America, and North America, influenced recent historical developments. At the same time, the "classic" cases of genocide in the twentieth Century -- the Armenian Genocide, the Holocaust, Rwanda, and Bosnia -- are discussed, together with recent episodes in Darfur and Congo. -- Provided by publisher

The establishment of communist regimes in Eastern Europe, 1944-1949 by Norman M Naimark( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 452 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
Europe on trial : the story of collaboration, resistance, and retribution during World War II by István Deák( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Europe on Trial, acclaimed historian Istvan Deak presents the comparative history of collaboration, retribution, and resistance during World War II. Deak explores these three themes through the Western and Eastern European countries that suffered at the hands of German military occupation. The occupied countries had to face the question of whether to cooperate with their German occupiers, try to survive the war without any political involvement, or risk their lives by opposing the Nazis. Deak delves deep into the decisions that various countries and individuals made during this critical time. Following the brutal war, Deak discusses the purging of the ancient regime through lynching, acts of private vengeance, denunciation, firings, forced retirements, deprivation of citizens' rights, expulsions, mass deportations, arbitrary internment, and judicial proceedings including the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal from 1945-1946, which judged the principal German war criminals. Europe on Trial helps us to understand the many moral consequences both during and immediately following World War II"--Provided by publisher

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 115 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

The Cambridge history of communism( )

10 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second volume explores the rise of Communist states and movements after World War II. Leading experts analyze archival sources from formerly Communist states to re-examine the limits to Moscow's control of its satellites; the de-Stalinization of 1956; Communist reform movements; the rise and fall of the Sino-Soviet alliance; the growth of Communism in Asia, Africa and Latin America; and the effects of the Sino-Soviet split on world Communism. Chapters explore the cultures of Communism in the United States, Western Europe and China, and the conflicts engendered by nationalism and the continued need for support from Moscow. With the danger of a new Cold War developing between former and current Communist states and the West, this account of the roots, development and dissolution of the socialist bloc is essential reading
The Cambridge history of communism( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in Undetermined and English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Cambridge History of Communism is an unprecedented global history of communism in the twentieth century. With contributions from a team of leading historians, economists, political scientists and sociologists, the three volumes examine communism in the context of wider political, social, cultural, and economic processes, while at the same time revealing how it contributed to shaping them. Volume One deals with the roots, impact, and development of communism, analysing the tumultuous events from the Russian Revolution of 1917 to the Second World War, and historical personalities such as Lenin, Stalin, and Trotsky. Volumes Two and Three then review the global impact of communism, focussing on the Cold War, the Chinese Revolution, the Vietnam War and the eventual collapse of the Soviet Union. Together, the volumes explain why a movement that sought to bring revolution on a global scale, overthrowing capitalism and parliamentary democracy, acquired such force and influence"--
