A life beyond the boundaries
Anderson, Benedict, author
London ; Verso, 2016
Shifting Youth -- The American Origins of Area Studies -- Fieldwork -- Frameworks of Comparison -- Interdisciplinary -- Retirement and Liberation -- Afterword.

"An intellectual memoir by the author of the acclaimed Imagined Communities. Benedict Anderson is one of the leading historians of nationalism and Southeast Asia. His seminal book Imagined Communities has changed the way we think about the reason that people live, die and kill in the name of nationhood. Born in China, Anderson spent his childhood in California and Ireland, was educated in England and finally found a home at Cornell University, where he immersed himself in the growing field of Southeast Asian studies. After field work in Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines, he was banned from Suharto's Indonesia for disputing the legitimacy of the 1965 coup. In his memoir, he brings to life the intellectual formation of a life spent open to the world, resisting the easy comforts of imagined homes: the joys of learning languages; the importance of field work; the influence of the New Left upon global thinking; and the satisfactions of teaching"--

Partisan diary : a woman's life in the Italian Resistance
Gobetti, Ada, 1902-1968
Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2014
List of Acronyms -- Map -- Introduction -- 10-12 September 1943 -- 13 September-16 November 1943 -- 17-23 November 1943 -- 24 November 1943-23 March 1944 -- 24 March-1 April 1944 -- 2 April-25 June 1944 -- 26 June-4 July 1944 -- 5 July-14 November 1944 -- 15-27 November 1944 -- 28 November-25 December 1944 -- 30 December 1944-26 February 1945 -- 27 February-25 April 1945 -- 26-28 April 1945.

"Ada Gobetti's Partisan Diary is both diary and memoir. From the German entry into Turin on 10 September 1943 to the liberation of the city on 28 April 1945, Gobetti recorded an almost daily account of events, sentiments, and personalities, in a cryptic English only she could understand. Italian senator and philosopher Benedetto Croce encouraged Ada to convert her notes into a book. Published by Giulio Einaudi editore in 1956, it won the Premio Prato, an annual prize for a work inspired by the Italian Resistance (Resistenza). From a political and military point of view, the Partisan Diary provides firsthand knowledge of how the partisans in Piedmont fought, what obstacles they encountered, and who joined the struggle against the Nazis and the Fascists. The mountainous terrain and long winters of the Alpine regions (the site of many of their battles) and the ever-present threat of reprisals by German occupiers and their fascist partners exacerbated problems of organization among the various partisan groups. So arduous was their fight, that key military events--Italy's declaration of war on Germany, the fall of Rome, and the Allied landings on D-Day--appear in the diary as remote and almost unrelated incidents. Ada Gobetti writes of the heartbreak of mothers who lost their sons or watched them leave on dangerous missions of sabotage, relating it to worries about her own son Paolo. She reflects on the relationship between anti-fascist thought of the 1920s, in particular the ideas of her husband, Piero Gobetti, and the Italian resistance movement (Resistenza) in which she and her son were participating. While the Resistenza represented a culmination of more than twenty years of anti-fascist activity for Ada, it also helped illuminate the exceptional talents, needs, and rights of Italian women, more than one hundred thousand of whom participated"--

The extermination of the European Jews
Gerlach, Christian, 1963- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2016
1. Introduction -- pt. I. Persecution by Germans. 2. Before 1933 ; 3. From enforced emigration to territorial schemes: 1933-41 ; 4. From mass murder to comprehensive annihilation: 1941-2 ; 5. Extending mass destruction: 1942-5 ; 6. Structures and agents of violence -- pt. II. Logics of persecution. 7. Racism and anti-Jewish thought ; 8. Forced labor, German violence and Jews ; 9. Hunger policies and mass murder ; 10. The economics of separation, expropriation, crowding and removal ; 11. Fighting resistance and the persecution of Jews -- pt. III. The European dimension. 12. Legislation against Jews in Europe: a comparison ; 13. Divided societies: popular input to the persecution of Jews ; 14. Beyond legislation: non-German policies of violence ; 15. In the labyrinths of persecution: survival attempts ; 16. Conclusion: Group destruction in extremely violent societies.

"This major reinterpretation of the Holocaust surveys the destruction of the European Jews within the broader context of Nazi violence against other victim groups. Christian Gerlach offers a unique social history of mass violence which reveals why particular groups were persecuted and what it was that connected the fate of these groups and the policies against them. He explores the diverse ideological, political and economic motivations which lay behind the murder of the Jews and charts the changing dynamics of persecution during the course of the war. The book brings together both German actions and those of non-German states and societies, shedding new light on the different groups and vested interests involved and their role in the persecution of non-Jews as well. Ranging across continental Europe, it reveals that popular notions of race were often more important in shaping persecution than scientific racism or Nazi dogma"--

European elites and ideas of empire, 1917-1957
Gusejnova, Dina, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2016
Part I. Celebrity of Decline -- 1. Famous deaths : subjects of imperial decline -- 2. Shared horizons : the sentimental elite in the Great War -- Part II. Power of Prestige -- 3. Soft power : pan-Europeanism after the Habsburgs -- 4. The German princes : an aristocratic fraction in the democratic age -- 5. Crusaders of civility : the legal internationalism of the Baltic Barons -- Part III. Phantom Empires -- 6. Knights of many faces : the dream of chivalry and its dreamers -- 7. Apostles of elegy : Bloomsbury's continental connections -- Epilogue -- Archives.

"Who thought of Europe as a community before its economic integration in 1957? Dina Gusejnova illustrates how a supranational European mentality was forged from depleted imperial identities. In the revolutions of 1917 to 1920, the power of the Hohenzollern, Habsburg and Romanoff dynasties over their subjects expired. Even though Germany lost its credit as a world power twice in that century, in the global cultural memory, the old Germanic families remained associated with the idea of Europe in areas reaching from Mexico to the Baltic region and India. Gusejnova's book sheds light on a group of German-speaking intellectuals of aristocratic origin who became pioneers of Europe's future regeneration. In the minds of transnational elites, the continent's future horizons retained the contours of phantom empires"--
