Author: 

Myers, Jason

Credentials: 

Ph.D, History, Loyola University, Chicago

This book adds a major culture-based study to the field of Irish history. It addresses a topic and touches on themes that continue to be relevant and debated in contemporary Ireland. Dr.Myers makes a major contribution to the “New Military History” of Ireland and adds the memory of the First World War of one of the “small nations” that emerged in the wake of that conflict to the numerous memory studies that exist for the primary combatant nations (Britain, France, and Germany).

The Shattered Visage: The Remythologising of the British Literary Hero After World War 1

Author: 

McLure, Victoria

Credentials: 

Professor of English, South Plains College

What were the links between propaganda, especially popular music and literature, and the British public's view of the front line soldier during the Great War? And when did that view dramatically alter to reflect the harsh realities, the tragedy and the epocal waste of life, the social dislocation, the sheer futility of the struggle, and who was responsible for the shift and its literary aftermath? These are some of the questions addressed by Professor McLure's monograph.

Explaining the Holocaust: Behavior of Perpetrators, Victims and Bystanders

Author: 

McBroom, William

Credentials: 

Professor of Sociology, The University Of Montana -Missoula

Professor McBroom argues that the events of the Holocaust do not require special, unique or extreme explanations. Rather the behavior of victims, perpetrators, and bystanders can be understood and explained by established principles of social science. As such, events like those of the Holocaust are natural phenomena and have not only occurred in instances other than the “final solution,’ but can happen any time that certain relatively few conditions are present.

The Algerian Destiny of Albert Camus: 1940 – 1962

Author: 

Maougal, Mohamed and Kassoul, Aicha; Translation: Professor Philip Beitchman, NYU

Credentials: 

Authors are senior professors of French Literature, University of Algiers

This monograph (translated from French) is the first attempt to reconcile Camus’s deep-seated identity as an Algerian and his ideas of a multiconfessional, multicultural, non-colonial Algeria. The authors discuss the identity of Camus, his philosophy and politics, including his sexual politics, in light of a southern Mediterranean cultural nexus that stamped Camus as an Algerian rather than French (pied-noir). Camus’s cosmopolitan and radical Algiers of the 30’s is described vibrantly reflecting his extraordinary understanding of the people and landscape that evolved from his journalism.

An Idler: John Hay’s Social and Aesthetic Commentaries for the Press During the Civil War, 1861 - 1865

Author: 

Hill, Douglas Warren

Credentials: 

Ph.D; Professor of History, University of Maryland; Foreword: Professor Helmut Relsig

John Hay’s distinguished national service began when he was Lincohn’s private secretary and continued until up to his death as Secretary of State for two presidents. For a public man under scrutiny (including numerous biographies and Henry Adam’s insightful portrait in THE EDUCATION OF HENRY ADAMS) little is known about Hay and his anonymous commentaries, reviews and critiques written during the Civil War. Dr. Hill’s new monograph remedies that situation.
