The Oxford illustrated history of the Third Reich by Robert Gellately( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At age thirty in 1919, Adolf Hitler had no accomplishments. He was a rootless loner, a corporal in a shattered army, without money or prospects. A little more than twenty years later, in autumn 1941, he directed his dynamic forces against the Soviet Union, and in December, the Germans were at the gates of Moscow and Leningrad. At that moment, Hitler appeared - however briefly - to be the most powerful ruler on the planet. Given this dramatic turn of events, it is little wonder that since 1945 generations of historians keep trying to explain how it all happened.00This richly illustrated history provides a readable and fresh approach to the complex history of the Third Reich, from the coming to power of the Nazis in 1933 to the final collapse in 1945. Using photographs, paintings, propaganda images, and a host of other such materials from a wide range of sources, including official documents, cinema, and the photography of contemporary amateurs, foreigners, and the Allied armies, it distills our ideas about the period and provides a balanced and accessible account of the whole era
Transformations of retailing in Europe after 1945 by Ralph Jessen( )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After World War II, structures, practices and the culture of retailing in most West European countries went through a period of rapid change. The post-war economic boom, the emergence of a mass consumer society, and the adaptation of innovations which already had been implemented in the USA during the interwar period, revolutionized the world of getting and spending. But the implementation of self-service and the supermarket, the spread of the department store and the mail order business were not only elements of a transatlantic catch up process of 'Americanization' of retailing. National patterns of the retail trade and specific cultures of consumption remained crucial, and long term processes of change, starting in the 1920s or 1930s, also had an impact on the transformation of retailing in post-war Europe. This volume presents a series of case-studies looking at transformations of retailing in several European countries, offering new insights into the structural preconditions of the emerging mass consumer societies and also into the consequences consumerism had on the practices of retailing

Konkurrenz in der Geschichte Praktiken - Werte - Institutionalisierungen( )

5 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anders als es ein verbreiteter wirtschaftswissenschaftlicher Modellplatonismus behauptet, ist "Konkurrenz" kein naturwüchsiger Ausdruck individueller Nutzenmaximierung. Wie Menschen um knappe Güter konkurrieren - sei es Geld, Macht, Prestige oder auch die Anerkennung wissenschaftlicher Wahrheiten - und ob dieser Wettbewerb als fair und legitim akzeptiert wird, hängt vielmehr von vielfältigen kulturellen Voraussetzungen, institutionellen Arrangements und sozialen Praktiken ab. An ausgewählten Beispielen der europäischen Geschichte untersuchen die Autoren den Wandel der Praxis, der Rechtfertigu

2 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Disability History Herausgegeben von Gabriele Lingelbach, Elsbeth Bösl und Maren Möhring Welche Ereignisse der deutschen Geschichte nach 1945 können als Momente des Wandels im gesellschaftlichen Umgang mit dem Phänomen >>Behinderung<< betrachtet werden? War das Kriegsende 1945 tatsächlich eine Zäsur? Oder sollten andere Geschehnisse, etwa der >>Contergan-Skandal<< in den 1960er Jahren, als Wendepunkte angesehen werden? Im interdisziplinären Dialog fragen die Autorinnen und Autoren danach, welche Phasen der Kontinuitäten und der Brüche sich für die Lebenslagen von Menschen mit Behinderungen in Deutschland identifizieren lassen. So entsteht erstmals ein Überblick über die Geschichte von Menschen mit Behinderungen in beiden deutschen Staaten seit 1945. (Quelle: buchhandel.de)
