23 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Iron Kingdom traces Prussia's involvement in the continent's foundational religious and political conflagrations: from the devastations of the Thirty Years War through centuries of political machinations to the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire, from the enlightenment of Frederick the Great to the destructive conquests of Napoleon, and from the "iron and blood" policies of Bismarck to the creation of the German Empire in 1871, with all that implied for the tumultuous twentieth century."--Jacket
Kaiser Wilhelm II by Christopher M Clark( Book )

25 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kaiser Wilhelm II is one of the key figures in the history of twentieth-century Europe: King of Prussia and German Emperor from 1888 to the collapse of Germany in 1918 and a crucial player in the events that led to the outbreak of World War I. Drawing on a wide range of sources including unpublished archival material, this study focuses on: the character and extent of his power; his political goals; his success in achieving them; the mechanisms by which he projected authority and exercised influence; his role in the formation of foreign policy and his impact on the events of July 1914; and his part in the German leadership's world-historical decision to risk unconditional submarine warfare in 1917." "Following Kaiser Wilhelm's political career from his youth at the Hohenzollern court through the turbulent peacetime decades of the Wilhelmine era into global war and exile, the book presents a new interpretation of this controversial monarch and assesses the impact on Germany of his forty-year reign."--Jacket

The politics of conversion : missionary Protestantism and the Jews in Prussia, 1728-1941 by Christopher M Clark( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These themes are analysed within the context of the rapidly changing relationship between religion and politics in the Prussian state, for 'Jewish Questions', as this book shows, were intimately connected with 'Christian Questions' of equal political and social consequence. This study sheds light on a facet of Jewish-German history that has been overshadowed by the rise of racial antisemitism and the ultimate tragedy of the Holocaust
Preußen : Aufstieg und Niedergang 1600-1947 by Christopher M Clark( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in German and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Geschichte Preußens - ein brillant erzähltes Standardwerk Christopher Clark schildert den Aufstieg Preußens vom kleinen, an Bodenschätzen armen Territorium um Berlin zur dominierenden Macht auf dem europäischen Kontinent. Seine brillante Darstellung von über 300 Jahren preußischer Historie ist ein Meisterwerk der Geschichtsschreibung. Die Auflösung Preußens durch ein alliiertes Kontrollratsgesetz am 25. Februar 1947 setzte einen Schlusspunkt unter eine Jahrhunderte alte wechselvolle Geschichte. Der Name Preußen ist untrennbar verbunden mit Aufklärung und Toleranz, verkörpert etwa in Friedrich dem Großen, verbunden aber auch mit Militarismus, Maßlosigkeit und Selbstüberschätzung Wilhelms II. Das Nachdenken über Preußen stand in den letzten Jahrzehnten im Schatten der hitzigen Debatten über die deutsche Geschichte. Doch die Zeit ist reif für einen distanzierten, sensibel wägenden Blick auf dieses große Kapitel der deutschen und europäischen Vergangenheit. Christopher Clark schildert den Aufstieg Preußens vom kleinen, an Bodenschätzen armen Territorium um Berlin zur dominierenden Macht auf dem europäischen Festland und schließlich die Auflösung nach dem Zusammenbruch des Deutschen Reiches. Seine brillante Darstellung von über 300 Jahren preußischer Historie ist ein Meisterwerk angelsächsischer Geschichtsschreibung. Ausgezeichnet von DAMALS als bestes historisches Buch 2007. Unabhängiger, britischer Blick auf die ambivalente preußisch-deutsche Geschichte

The sleepwalkers : how Europe went to war in 1914 by Christopher M Clark( )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Sleepwalkers is historian Christopher Clark's riveting account of the explosive beginnings of World War I. Drawing on new scholarship, Clark offers a fresh look at World War I, focusing not on the battles and atrocities of the war itself but on the complex events and relationships that led a group of well-meaning leaders into brutal conflict. Clark traces the paths to war in a minute-by-minute, action-packed narrative that cuts between the key decision centers in Vienna, Berlin, St. Petersburg, Paris, London, and Belgrade, and he examines the decades of history that informed the events of 1914 and details the mutual misunderstandings and unintended signals that drove the crisis forward in a few short weeks" --

Operation Pelican : the Royal Australian Air Force in the Berlin Airlift, 1948-1949 by Chris Clark( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1948 Britain, France and the United States of America found themselves opposed to their former wartime ally, the Soviet Union, over matters regarding control of the capital of the defeated Nazi German regime. When the Soviets imposed a blockade of the city, the Allies had no option but to begin flying in the necessities of life for the two million inhabitants of the zones under their administration. Thus began the first large-scale humanitarian airlift in history. When Britain turned for support to its Dominion partners, the transport element of the Royal Australian Air Force had recently ceased flying a regular courier service for Australian occupation forces involved in garrisoning another defeated Axis power of World War II, Japan - this role having been handed over to a commercial airline. By September 1948 an unnumbered Australian squadron had joined other RAAF transport crews already engaged as part of the massive allied undertaking. To the Americans the fifteen-month-long operation was codenamed Vittles, while the British called it Plainfare. But to the Royal Australian Air Force personnel involved, the Berlin Airlift was known as Pelican. Here the story is told of the events that made the airlift necessary, what the undertaking entailed and the part that Australians played in it, as well as the outcome and achievements of Operation Pelican
