Europe transformed, 1878-1919 by Norman Stone( Book )

59 editions published between 1975 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 2,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a fascinating introduction to the complex era from 1878 to the end of World War. The forty years before 1914 were a period of extraordinary peace and prosperity, but this world came to a dramatic end with the start of the First World War. Stone explores the political history of the period running up to the war, setting events in the context of social, economic and cultural changes."
World War One by Norman Stone( Book )

27 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World War One began on horseback, with generals employing bayonet charges to gain ground, and ended with attacks resembling the Nazi blitzkriegs. The scale of devastation was unlike anything the world had seen before: Fourteen million combatants died, a further twenty million were wounded, and four empires were destroyed. Even the victors' empires were fatally damaged. An overwhelming disaster from which the world is still recovering, World War One can seem baffling in its complexity. But now Norman Stone has composed a succinct history of the conflict --From publisher description

The eastern front, 1914-1917 by Norman Stone( Book )

44 editions published between 1975 and 2008 in English and held by 1,296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The battles fought on the Eastern Front were decisive to the course of the First World War. As Well as reconstructing these events, Norman Stone explores the factors that influenced their outcome and draws some unexpected conclusions. Dispelling the popular myth of an economically crippled Russia, he argues that the country was, in fact, going through a period of unprecedented economic growth. Tsarist Russia's weakness lay in its outdated administration, which resulted in war shortages and an inefficient army. In a fascinating reinterpretation of the connection between the war and the revolution that followed, he shows that although military events had almost ceased by the end of 1916, Russia was still in turmoil, undergoing a period of modernization that opened the way to revolution

The purpose of this book is to illustrate what life was like for Russian emigrants in different times and places, including, where possible, their memories of Russia before 1917 or in the Soviet Union afterwards. The oral histories presented are divided into three time periods. The first deals with 1900-1921, the end of the Old Order. Some of the experiences told recount the events surrounding the Revolution, while others deal with escape, flight and exile. The second part of the book focuses on refugees between 1922 and 1947. Among the communities mentioned is Harbin, a city in Manchuria which had become Russian when the Tsarist Government built the Trans-Siberian railway in the 1890s. Attention is also given to the movement to go back and of the situation of the émigrés during the Second World War. The third part of the book concerns the Soviet Experience and Beyond, 1946-1986. Stories in this section tell of life under Stalin, hunger, escape and defection, and of the struggle of artists and intellectuals within the Soviet Union during this period

Turkey : a short history by Norman Stone( Book )

22 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For six hundred years Turkey was at the heart of the Ottoman Empire, a superpower that brought Islam to the gates of Vienna and stretched to North Africa, the Persian Gulf and the river Volga. Stone examines the reasons for the astonishing rise and the long decline of this world empire and how for its last hundred years it became the centre of the Eastern Question, as the Great Powers argued over a regime in its death throes. Then, as now, the position of Turkey--a country balanced between two continents--provoked passionate debate. Norman Stone concludes the book with a trenchant examination of the Turkish republic created in the aftermath of the First World War, where East and West, religion and secularism, tradition and modernization are vibrant and sometimes conflicting elements of national identity.--
