Item Description: London, Constable, 1960. Book Condition: Wie neu. Erstausgabe. First Imprint. xxii, 424 Seiten 15 x 24 cm. Good condition. Guter Zustand. Schutzumschlag mit einem größeren Ausriß und 2 Einrissen. Aus dem Besitz der Gräfin Ledebur mit geprägtem Monogramm (Krone) auf dem Vorsatz. - Sir Harold George Nicolson KCVO CMG (21 November 1886 – 1 May 1968) was an English diplomat, author, diarist and politician. He was the husband of writer Vita Sackville-West, their unusual relationship being described in their son's book, Portrait of a Marriage. . Personal life: In 1913, he married the writer Vita Sackville-West, who encouraged his literary ambitions. He published a biography of French poet Paul Verlaine in 1921, to be followed by studies of other literary figures such as Tennyson, Byron, Swinburne and Sainte-Beuve. In 1933, he wrote an account of the Paris Peace Conference entitled Peacemaking 1919. Nicolson and his wife practiced what today would be called an open marriage. They each had a number of same-sex affairs, and once Harold had to follow Vita to France, where she had "eloped" with Violet Trefusis, to try to win her back. However, they remained happy together – in fact, they were famously devoted to each other, writing almost every day when they were separated, for example, because of long diplomatic postings abroad. Eventually, he gave up diplomacy, partly so they could live together in England. They had two sons, Nigel, also a politician and writer, and Benedict, an art historian. In the 1930s, he and his wife acquired and moved to Sissinghurst Castle, near Cranbrook in Kent, the county known as the garden of England. There they created the renowned gardens that are now run by the National Trust. Later life and legacy: After Nicolson's last attempt to enter Parliament, he continued with an extensive social schedule and his programme of writing, which included books, book reviews, and a weekly column for The Spectator. He was appointed Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (KCVO) in 1953, as a reward for writing the official biography of George V, which had been published in the previous year.[4] His younger son, the publisher and writer Nigel Nicolson, published works by and about his parents, including Portrait of a Marriage (frankly covering his parents' bisexuality), their correspondence, and Nicolson's diary. The latter is one of the pre-eminent British diaries of the 20th century and an invaluable source on British political history from 1930 through the 1950s, particularly in regard to the run-up to World War II and the war itself: Nicolson served in high enough echelons to write of the workings of the circles of power and the day-to-day unfolding of great events from, as it were, a medium distance. (His fellow parliamentarian Robert Bernays aptly characterized Nicolson as being ".a national figure of the second degree.") It is perhaps his diary, of all of his voluminous oeuvre, for which Harold Nicolson will be most remembered, as the author was variously an acquaintance, associate, friend, or intimate to such figures as Ramsay MacDonald, David Lloyd George, Duff Cooper, Charles de Gaulle, Anthony Eden and Winston Churchill, along with a host of literary and artistic figures. .

Item Description: Grin Verlag Apr 2011, 2011. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. 210x148x2 mm. This item is printed on demand - Print on Demand Titel. - Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 2,0, Dresden Technical University (Anglistik, Amerikanistik), course: European- American Relations, language: English, abstract: After the peace of Paris in 1918, Germany and America gradually enhanced and improved their relationship. In 1921, the U.S. and Germany made a bilateral peace and diplomatic relations commenced. The trade agreement of 1923 could be considered as a confirmation of parallel interests and a well- working relationship. America provided Germany with loans to cure the German economy after the hyperinflation. Furthermore, the U.S. aimed to support the establishment of a healthy economy to help Germany enable to pay reparations and to have a market for its exports. Not all Germans, however, embraced the modernism pushed by America through their support. During the Weimar Years, the United States has assisted Germany in all crucial questions referring to reparations, reorganization and reintegration in Europe.A multiplicity of issues has worsened the relationship in the 1930s. The United States and Germany could not agree in terms of disarmament, trade agreements and debts resulting from Dawes Plan loans and Austrian liabilities. Conferences to stabilize the situation and the peace in Europe failed. During his first years in office, the Führer had tried to compromise with America. However, he increasingly emancipated from the Allies and the Treaty of Versailles by making his own decisions regardless to the other nation s opinion. The Neutrality Laws of 1935 constituted a relative freedom of decisions for Hitler. In spite of American neutrality, Roosevelt commented on Hitler s decisions and aggressive foreign policy from 1937 onwards. This was also the turning point for the Nazis; articles in the BIZ, a newspaper being taken away from the Jewish owners and was now a Nazi institution, turned from neutral and positive comments on the New Deal to a hostile hate campaign (Junker, 1997: 246).To bring matters to a head, ambivalence is obviously the best description of German- American relations in the interwar years. Fears, hopes, and interdependences shaped mutual perceptions during this period. From the first encounters after the First World War, to a special bilateral relationship in the 1920s, Germany and America had parted in the 1930s. Interestingly, both were developing toward isolation. The United States because of movements of isolationists, and Germany was isolating itself through its aggressive foreign policy. The America, however, got out of their isolation in 1937/1938. Germany only in 1945- defeated and destroyed. 28 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783640900688

Item Description: Princeton Univers. Press Mrz 2013, 2013. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. 241x161x38 mm. Neuware - When turmoil strikes world monetary and financial markets, leaders invariably call for 'a new Bretton Woods' to prevent catastrophic economic disorder and defuse political conflict. The name of the remote New Hampshire town where representatives of forty-four nations gathered in July 1944, in the midst of the century's second great war, has become shorthand for enlightened globalization. The actual story surrounding the historic Bretton Woods accords, however, is full of startling drama, intrigue, and rivalry, which are vividly brought to life in Benn Steil's epic account. Upending the conventional wisdom that Bretton Woods was the product of an amiable Anglo-American collaboration, Steil shows that it was in reality part of a much more ambitious geopolitical agenda hatched within President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Treasury and aimed at eliminating Britain as an economic and political rival. At the heart of the drama were the antipodal characters of John Maynard Keynes, the renowned and revolutionary British economist, and Harry Dexter White, the dogged, self-made American technocrat. Bringing to bear new and striking archival evidence, Steil offers the most compelling portrait yet of the complex and controversial figure of White--the architect of the dollar's privileged place in the Bretton Woods monetary system, who also, very privately, admired Soviet economic planning and engaged in clandestine communications with Soviet intelligence officials and agents over many years. A remarkably deft work of storytelling that reveals how the blueprint for the postwar economic order was actually drawn, The Battle of Bretton Woods is destined to become a classic of economic and political history.'Steil's book, engaging and entertaining, perceptive and instructive, is a triumph of economic and diplomatic history. Everything is here: political chicanery, bureaucratic skulduggery, espionage, hard economic detail and the acid humour of men making history under pressure.'--Tony Barber, Financial Times '[T]he author masterfully translates the arcana of competing theories of monetary policy, and a final chapter explains how, while some of the institutions created by Bretton Woods endure--the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund--many of the conference's assumptions were swiftly overtaken by the Marshall Plan. Throughout Steil's sharp discussion runs the intriguing subplot of White's career-long, secret relationship with Soviet intelligence. A vivid, highly informed portrayal of the personalities, politics and policies dominating 'the most important international gathering since the Paris Peace Conference of 1919.'' Kirkus Reviews (starred review) 'A] masterful (and readable) account of American realpolitik and British delusion.'--Andrew Hilton, Financial World 449 pp. Englisch.

Item Description: London: Hutchinson, 1967. Book Condition: Wie neu. Erstausgabe. First Imprint. 296 Seiten mit einem Titelporträt und 20 photographischen Abbildungen. 21,6 x 14,5 cm. Good Condition. Guter Zustand. Schutzumschlag mit 2 kleinen Ausrissen. Aus dem Besitz der Gräfin Ledebur. - Frances Stevenson, Countess Lloyd-George of Dwyfor, CBE (7 October 1888 – 5 December 1972) was the mistress, personal secretary, confidante and second wife of British Prime Minister David Lloyd George. Frances Stevenson was born in London. She was educated at Clapham High School and Royal Holloway College, where she graduated with a Classics degree in 1910. In 1911 Lloyd George, then Chancellor of the Exchequer, hired Stevenson as a governess for his youngest daughter Megan. Lloyd George and Stevenson were soon attracted to each other. Although Stevenson, who wanted a conventional marriage and many children, hesitated about becoming the mistress of a married man, she agreed to become Lloyd George's personal secretary on his terms — which included a sexual relationship — in 1913. Stevenson's vitality, prosperity and loyalty to Lloyd George, as well as her discretion in her work and personal life, gained her lover's admiration (although not fidelity). She was created a Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1918 and accompanied Lloyd George to the Paris Peace Conference of 1919. Stevenson chose the location and supervised the construction of Lloyd George's country house in Churt, Surrey. She also arranged and collated Lloyd George's extensive archive of personal and political papers so that he could write his War Memoirs. After having been persuaded by Lloyd George to have two abortions, Stevenson gave birth to a daughter, Jennifer, in 1929. Although Stevenson had been having an affair with Thomas Frederic Tweed, a novelist who was one of Lloyd George's political advisers, Lloyd George was probably the father of Stevenson's child. Two years after the death of Lloyd George's wife Margaret, Stevenson married Lloyd George on 23 October 1943 despite the disapproval of Lloyd George's children from his first marriage. Less than 18 months later, Lloyd George died on 26 March 1945. Frances Stevenson, now the Dowager Countess Lloyd-George of Dwyfor, lived at Churt for the rest of her life, devoting her time to her family, charitable activities, perpetuating the memory of Lloyd George and writing. Her memoirs The Years That Are Past was published in 1967, and her diary of her life with Lloyd George was published in 1971. .

Item Description: Oxford University Press Jun 2009, 2009. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. 233 x 157 x 22 mm. Neuware - During the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, while key decisions were debated by the victorious Allied powers, a multitude of smaller nations and colonies held their breath, waiting to see how their fates would be decided. President Woodrow Wilson, in his Fourteen Points, had called for 'a free, open-minded, and absolutely impartial adjustment of all colonial claims,' giving equal weight would be given to the opinions of the colonized peoples and the colonial powers. Among those nations now paying close attention to Wilson's words and actions were the budding nationalist leaders of four disparate non-Western societies - Egypt, India, China, and Korea. That spring, Wilson's words would help ignite political upheavals in all four of these countries. This book is the first to place the 1919 Revolution in Egypt, the Rowlatt Satyagraha in India, the May Fourth movement in China, and the March First uprising in Korea in the context of a broader 'Wilsonian moment' that challenged the existing international order. Using primary source material from America, Europe, and Asia, historian Erez Manela tells the story of how emerging nationalist movements appropriated Wilsonian language and adapted it to their own local culture and politics as they launched into action on the international stage. The rapid disintegration of the Wilsonian promise left a legacy of disillusionment and facilitated the spread of revisionist ideologies and movements in these societies; future leaders of Third World liberation movements - Mao Zedong, Ho Chi Minh, and Jawaharlal Nehru, among others - were profoundly shaped by their experiences at the time. The importance of the Paris Peace Conference and Wilson's influence on international affairs far from the battlefields of Europe cannot be underestimated. Now, for the first time, we can clearly see just how the events played out at Versailles sparked a wave of nationalism that is still resonating globally today. Englisch.

Item Description: Princeton Univers. Press Mrz 2013, 2013. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. 241x161x38 mm. Neuware - When turmoil strikes world monetary and financial markets, leaders invariably call for 'a new Bretton Woods' to prevent catastrophic economic disorder and defuse political conflict. The name of the remote New Hampshire town where representatives of forty-four nations gathered in July 1944, in the midst of the century's second great war, has become shorthand for enlightened globalization. The actual story surrounding the historic Bretton Woods accords, however, is full of startling drama, intrigue, and rivalry, which are vividly brought to life in Benn Steil's epic account. Upending the conventional wisdom that Bretton Woods was the product of an amiable Anglo-American collaboration, Steil shows that it was in reality part of a much more ambitious geopolitical agenda hatched within President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Treasury and aimed at eliminating Britain as an economic and political rival. At the heart of the drama were the antipodal characters of John Maynard Keynes, the renowned and revolutionary British economist, and Harry Dexter White, the dogged, self-made American technocrat. Bringing to bear new and striking archival evidence, Steil offers the most compelling portrait yet of the complex and controversial figure of White--the architect of the dollar's privileged place in the Bretton Woods monetary system, who also, very privately, admired Soviet economic planning and engaged in clandestine communications with Soviet intelligence officials and agents over many years. A remarkably deft work of storytelling that reveals how the blueprint for the postwar economic order was actually drawn, The Battle of Bretton Woods is destined to become a classic of economic and political history. 'Steil's book, engaging and entertaining, perceptive and instructive, is a triumph of economic and diplomatic history. Everything is here: political chicanery, bureaucratic skulduggery, espionage, hard economic detail and the acid humour of men making history under pressure.'--Tony Barber, Financial Times '[T]he author masterfully translates the arcana of competing theories of monetary policy, and a final chapter explains how, while some of the institutions created by Bretton Woods endure--the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund--many of the conference's assumptions were swiftly overtaken by the Marshall Plan. Throughout Steil's sharp discussion runs the intriguing subplot of White's career-long, secret relationship with Soviet intelligence. A vivid, highly informed portrayal of the personalities, politics and policies dominating 'the most important international gathering since the Paris Peace Conference of 1919.'' Kirkus Reviews (starred review) 'A] masterful (and readable) account of American realpolitik and British delusion.'--Andrew Hilton, Financial World 449 pp. Englisch.

Item Description: Pan Macmillan Nov 2014, 2014. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. 235x159x40 mm. Neuware - A compelling account of a crucial year in post-war history, in the tradition of Margaret MacMillan's award-winning and bestselling The Peacemakers. With the end of the Second World War, a new world was born. The peace agreements that brought the conflict to an end implemented decisions that not only shaped the second half of the twentieth century, but continue to affect our world today and impact on its future. In 1946 the Cold War began, the state of Israel was conceived, the independence of India was all but confirmed and Chinese Communists gained a decisive upper hand in their fight for power. It was a pivotal year in modern history in which countries were reborn and created, national and ideological boundaries were redrawn and people across the globe began to rebuild their lives. In this remarkable history, the foreign correspondent and historian Victor Sebestyen draws on contemporary documents from around the world - including Stalin's personal notes from the Potsdam peace conference - to examine what lay behind the political decision-making. Sebestyen uses a vast array of archival material and personal testimonies to explore how the lives of generations of people across continents were shaped by the events of 1946. Taking readers from Berlin to London, from Paris to Moscow, from Washington to Jerusalem and from Delhi to Shanghai, this is a vivid and wide-ranging account of both powerbrokers and ordinary men and women from an acclaimed author. 464 pp. Englisch.
