War land on the Eastern Front : culture, national identity and German occupation in World War I by Vejas G Liulevicius( )

31 editions published between 2000 and 2018 in English and German and held by 2,427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"War Land on the Eastern Front is a study of a hidden legacy of World War I: the experience of German soldiers on the Eastern Front and the long-term effects of their encounter with Eastern Europe. It presents an 'anatomy of an occupation', charting the ambitions and realities of the German military state. Using hitherto neglected sources from both occupiers and occupied, official documents, propaganda, memoirs, and novels, it reveals how German views of the East changed during total war."--Jacket

World War I : the Great War by Vejas G Liulevicius( Visual )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World War I: The "Great War" tells the riveting, tragic, and cautionary tale of this watershed historical event and its aftermath in 36 half-hour lectures delivered by Professor Vejas Gabriel Liulevicius of the University of Tennessee. Professor Liulevicius has a gift for cutting through the tangle of historical data to uncover the patterns that make sense of complex events. And few events are as complex as World War I, which pitted the Central Powers of Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Ottoman Turkey, later joined by Bulgaria, against the Allies, principally France, Great Britain, Russia, Italy, Japan, and, after 1917, the United States

World War I, the "Great War" by Vejas G Liulevicius( Recording )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

University of Tennessee professor Vejas Liulevicius delivers lectures for a course on the First World War, which was touched off by a terrorist act in Bosnia and quickly expanded far beyond the expectations of those involved. It became the first "total war", a conflict involving entire societies mobilized to wage unrestrained war, devoting all their wealth, industries, institutions, and the lives of their citizens to victory at any price. The cost was ghastly, and the world would never be the same, as the legacy of the Great War continues to reverberate even today
Turning points in modern history by Vejas G Liulevicius( Recording )

7 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Turning Points in Modern History takes you on a far-reaching journey around the globe--from China to the Americas to New Zealand--to shed light on how two dozen of the top discoveries, inventions, political upheavals, and ideas since 1400 have shaped the modern world. Taught by award-winning history professor Vejas Gabriel Liulevicius of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, these 24 thought-provoking lectures tell the amazing story of how life as we know it developed--at times advancing in one brilliant instant and at other times, in painstaking degrees. Starting in the early 15th century and culminating in the age of social media, you'll encounter astounding threads that weave through the centuries, joining these turning points in ways that may come as a revelation. You'll also witness turning points with repercussions we can only speculate about because they are still very much in the process of turning."--Publisher's web site

War, peace, and power : diplomatic history of Europe, 1500-2000 by Vejas G Liulevicius( Recording )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For much of the past five centuries, the history of the European continent has been a history of chaos, its civilization thrown into turmoil by ferocious wars or bitter religious conflicts - sometimes in combination - that have made and remade borders, created and eliminated entire nations, and left a legacy that is still influencing our world. This 36-lecture series from an award-winning teacher and honored scholar pursues an explanation for this chaos that goes beyond the obvious ones of political ambition, religious intolerance, the pursuit of state power, or the fear of another state's aspirations. In pursuing that explanation, Professor Liulevicius offers everyone interested in the "why" of history a remarkable look into the evolution of the European continent and the modern state system. His provocative lectures allow us to peer through the revealing lens of statecraft to show us its impact on war, peace, and power and how that impact may well be felt in the future. As you learn to examine key points on history's diplomatic timeline in the context of attempting to establish - successfully and not - a lasting idea of order in the European world, you'll begin to grasp the key Professor Liulevicius offers to understanding the dynamics of international politics. And you'll see how such key concepts as the balance of power, power itself, sovereignty, and "reason of state"--The raison d'etat first enunciated by France's powerful Cardinal Richelieu - fit into those dynamics

History's greatest voyages of exploration by Vejas G Liulevicius( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Exploration is in our genes. Throughout history, one of the deepest human impulses has been the drive to explore, encounter, and know the unknown. This basic human longing can be traced all the way back to the most ancient origins of exploration over 60,000 years ago, when prehistoric wanderers first settled the globe. Today's high rates of global tourism and mass migrations reflect continuity with the restless habits of our ancestors. From ancient wayfarers to modern astronauts, a steady succession of intrepid individuals can take the credit for binding the continents together, connecting previously isolated peoples, and sparking a cross-fertilization of ideas, technologies, and even foods."
