Histories of the Holocaust by Dan Stone( )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Japanese and held by 1,605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is, then, an urgent need to synthesize and evaluate the complex historiography on the Holocaust, exploring the major themes and debates relating to it and drawing widely on the findings of a great deal of research. Concentrating on the work of the last two decades, Histories of the Holocaust examines the "Final Solution" as a European project, the decision-making process, perpetrator research, plunder and collaboration, regional studies, ghettos, camps, race science, antisemitic ideology, and recent debates concerning modernity, organization theory, colonialism, genocide studies, and cultural history. Research on victims is discussed, but Stone focuses more closely on perpetrators, reflecting trends within the historiography, as well as his own view that in order to understand Nazi genocide the emphasis must be on the culture of the perpetrators
Breeding superman : Nietzsche, race and eugenics in Edwardian and interwar Britain by Dan Stone( )

14 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this text, Dan Stone challenges the traditional view held by many political historians that British fascism was nothing more than a pale imitation of its continental counterparts, and something of an irrelevance in British political history
The liberation of the camps : the end of the Holocaust and its aftermath by Dan Stone( )

17 editions published between 1900 and 2017 in English and Italian and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seventy years have passed since the tortured inmates of Hitler's concentration and extermination camps were liberated. When the horror of the atrocities came fully to light, it was easy for others to imagine the joyful relief of freed prisoners. Yet for those who had survived the unimaginable, the experience of liberation was a slow, grueling journey back to life. In this unprecedented inquiry into the days, months, and years following the arrival of Allied forces at the Nazi camps, a foremost historian of the Holocaust draws on archival sources and especially on eyewitness testimonies to reveal the complex challenges liberated victims faced and the daunting tasks their liberators undertook to help them reclaim their shattered lives. Historian Dan Stone focuses on the survivors-their feelings of guilt, exhaustion, fear, shame for having survived, and devastating grief for lost family members; their immense medical problems; and their later demands to be released from Displaced Persons camps and resettled in countries of their own choosing. Stone also tracks the efforts of British, American, Canadian, and Russian liberators as they contended with survivors' immediate needs, then grappled with longer-term issues that shaped the postwar world and ushered in the first chill of the Cold War years ahead. -- Provided by publisher
The Holocaust and historical methodology( )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last two decades our empirical knowledge of the Holocaust has been vastly expanded. Yet this empirical blossoming has not been accompanied by much theoretical reflection on the historiography. This volume argues that reflection on the historical process of (re)constructing the past is as important for understanding the Holocaust -- and, by extension, any past event -- as is archival research. It aims to go beyond the dominant paradigm of political history and describe the emergence of methods now being used to reconstruct the past in the context of Holocaust historiography

Goodbye to all that? : the story of Europe since 1945 by Dan Stone( Book )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shows how the anti-fascist consensus prevalent throughout Europe following World War II has been crumbling since the 1970s and how globalization, deregulation, the erosion of social-democratic welfare capitalism in the West, and the collapse of the Communist alternative in the East are leading to a social divisive, politically dangerous rise of fascism that could threaten the peace of Europe
The Oxford handbook of postwar European history by Dan Stone( Book )

22 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The postwar period is no longer current affairs but is becoming the recent past. As such, it is increasingly attracting the attentions of historians. Whilst the Cold War has long been a mainstay of political science and contemporary history, recent research approaches postwar Europe in many different ways, all of which are represented in the 35 chapters of this book. As well as diplomatic, political, institutional, economic, and social history, the The Oxford Handbook of Postwar European History contains chapters which approach the past through the lenses of gender, espionage, art and architecture, technology, agriculture, heritage, postcolonialism, memory, and generational change, and shows how the history of postwar Europe can be enriched by looking to disciplines such as anthropology and philosophy. The Handbook covers all of Europe, with a notable focus on Eastern Europe. Including subjects as diverse as the meaning of 'Europe' and European identity, southern Europe after dictatorship, the cultural meanings of the bomb, the 1968 student uprisings, immigration, Americanization, welfare, leisure, decolonization, the Wars of Yugoslav Succession, and coming to terms with the Nazi past, the thirty five essays in this Handbook offer an unparalleled coverage of postwar European history that offers far more than the standard Cold War framework. Readers will find self-contained, state-of-the-art analyses of major subjects, each written by acknowledged experts, as well as stimulating and novel approaches to newer topics. Combining empirical rigour and adventurous conceptual analysis, this Handbook offers in one substantial volume a guide to the numerous ways in which historians are now rewriting the history of postwar Europe"--

15 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text uses Arwndt's insights as a starting point for further investigations into the ways in which race, imperialism, slavery and genocide are linked
Responses to Nazism in Britain, 1933-1939 : before war and holocaust by Dan Stone( Book )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How was Nazism discussed in the 1930s? Studies of the period have traditionally focused on the politics of appeasement, on British and German foreign policy, or on the British Union of Fascists. Through a study of a large body of neglected literature, Responses to Nazism in Britain, 1933-1939 reveals that a far broader range of responses was made and debated. From remarkably sophisticated philosophical analyses to pro-Nazi apologias, with all shades of opinion in between, the British reading public was presented with a picture of Nazism that was, if anything, more advanced than that put forward by the government and its main supporters in the press. Combining history of ideas and cultural history, the author suggests that, before the war and the Holocaust, not a day went by when the shape and substance of British cultural and political debates were not informed by what was happening in Germany."--Jacket
Concentration camps : a short history by Dan Stone( Book )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Dan Stone gives a global history of concentration camps, and shows that it is not only 'mad dictators' who have set up camps, but instead all varieties of states, including liberal democracies, that have made use of them. Setting concentration camps against the longer history of incarceration, he explains how the ability of the modern state to control populations led to the creation of this extreme institution. Looking at their emergence and spread around the world, Stone argues that concentration camps serve the purpose, from the point of view of the state in crisis, of removing a section of the population that is perceived to be threatening, traitorous, or diseased. Drawing on contemporary accounts of camps, as well as the philosophical literature surrounding them, Stone considers the story camps tell us about the nature of the modern world as well as about specific regimes
Constructing the Holocaust : a study in historiography by Dan Stone( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the one hand, then, this is traditional historiography: the history of history writing. On the other hand, the problem is approached via recent work in the philosophy of history, closely analysing historical works as texts. This is an interdisciplinary study that brings to bear on historiography the kind of textual analysis usually reserved for fiction, testimony, or film."
The Holocaust, Fascism, and memory : essays in the history of ideas by Dan Stone( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From interpretations of the Holocaust to fascist thought and anti-fascists' responses, and the problems of memorializing this difficult past, this essay collection tackles topics which are rarely studied in conjunction. As well as historical analyses of fascist and anti-fascist thinking, Stone analyses the challenges involved in writing history in general and Holocaust historiography in particular. Following an introductory essay on 'history and its discontents', the wide-ranging chapters deal with individual thinkers of very different sorts, such as Hannah Arendt, Rolf Gardiner, Jules Monnerot and Saul Friedländer, movements such as interwar rural revivalism, the contested translation of Mein Kampf, émigré anti-fascists' writings, and the relationship between memory and history, especially with respect to atrocities like genocide. This unique collection of essays on a wide variety of topics contributes to understanding the roots and consequences of mid-twentieth-century Europe's great catastrophe."--Publisher's website

History, memory and mass atrocity : essays on the Holocaust and genocide by Dan Stone( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book's main theme is the interpretation of the Holocaust and genocide in historiography, philosophy and the contemporary culture of commemoration. Running through the essays is an attempt to understand the Holocaust's relationship to 'modernity'; the need to find ways of understanding genocide through apparently 'non-rational' forms of explanation (especially derived from anthropology); and the desirability of relating the Holocaust to other instances of genocide."--BOOK JACKET
Colonialism and genocide by A. Dirk Moses( Book )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Previously published as a special issue of Patterns of Prejudice, this is the first book to link colonialism and genocide in a systematic way in the context of world history.

This book publishes Lemkin's account of the genocide of the Aboriginal Tasmanians for the first time and chapters cover:the exterminatory rhetoric of racist discourses before the 'scientific racism' of the mid-nineteenth centuryCharles
