About this Item: Düsseldorf, Claassen Verlag, 1980. Condition: Gut. Deutsche Erstausgabe.. 581 Seiten und 16 Blatt mit 60 Abbildungen, sowie einigen Karten. Guter Zustand. Mängelstrich auf dem Kopfschnitt. Rückenschild mit kleinem Abrieb. - Barbara Wertheim Tuchman ['t?km?n] (* 30. Januar 1912 in New York City; † 6. Februar 1989 in Greenwich, Connecticut) war eine US-amerikanische Reporterin und Historikerin. . Werk: Tuchman wurde durch den Vorabdruck ihres Buches „August 1914" im Nachrichtenmagazin „Der Spiegel" in Deutschland über die Fachkreise hinaus sehr bekannt. Sie ist keine Schöpferin neuer Ansätze in der Geschichtswissenschaft; selbst neu aufgekommene zeitgenössische Methoden benutzte sie selten und nur teilweise. Sie vertrat eine konventionelle ereignisgeschichtliche[1] Betrachtungsweise und beschrieb das Handeln politischer Akteure und die sich daraus ergebenden Folgen im Einzelfall. Beispielsweise schilderte sie, wie sich Lyndon B. Johnson, der sozial denkende und innenpolitisch gewiefte Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten (1963–1969), im Vietnamkrieg auf seine innenpolitischen Erfahrungen verließ und damit im außenpolitischen Umfeld kläglich und fast unverschuldet Schiffbruch erlitt.[2] Sie befasste sich weniger mit Strukturen[3], unentrinnbaren Gesetzmäßigkeiten, Epochen, Zyklen[4] und Modellen der Geschichte als mit den Schwächen und Tugenden der Staatslenker in Entscheidungssituationen. Allgegenwärtig sind die Bornierten und die Wunschdenker, aber auch die charakterlichen und geistigen Lichtgestalten. Selbst Bezüge zur immer beliebter gewordenen Alltagsgeschichte stellte Tuchman nur sparsam her. Eine längere Untersuchung widmete sie allerdings der Mentalitäts- und Kulturgeschichte vor dem ersten Weltkrieg. Die Methoden der Politik- und Ereignisgeschichte seien nicht ausreichend, um ein Phänomen von so erschreckender Bösartigkeit zu erklären.[5] Aus Geschichte kann man nach Tuchmans Überzeugung trotz aller Einmaligkeit des jeweils Geschehenen lernen; Politikberatung durch Historiker ist erlaubt und geboten. Auch die Politische Biographie hat ihre Berechtigung als Prisma der Geschichte. Ihre Themenwahl und Fragestellungen machten ihre große Monographie „Sand gegen den Wind" über die amerikanische Kriegführung in China, Burma und Indien im Zweiten Weltkrieg zu einem heute noch nützlichen Standardwerk. Gleiches gilt für ihre letzte größere Untersuchung, eine Monographie über die Frühgeschichte der Vereinigten Staaten: „Der erste Salut". Neben geschickter Heuristik[6] pflegte Tuchman einen abwechslungsreichen und verständlichen Erzählstil, der zum Durchlesen der Bücher in einem Zug animiert und nicht nur zum Nachblättern. Die scheinbare wissenschaftliche Rückständigkeit von Tuchmans Methoden führte in der von ihr untersuchten Ereignis- und Politikgeschichte zu klaren und lebensnahen Urteilen. Dort werden die Protagonisten trotz aller Strukturen, Modelle und Mechanismen in Gewinner und Verlierer eingeteilt, nicht zuletzt von ihren Neben- und Randfiguren, die Ergebnisse politischen Handelns an Leib und Vermögen oft selbst am deutlichsten zu spüren bekommen. Bedeutung: John F. Kennedy hatte „August 1914" ebenfalls gelesen und erinnerte sich hieran, als die Seeblockade gegen Kuba vorbereitet wurde, die er am 22. Oktober 1962 für die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika erklärte. Kennedy war sich sicher, dass die Sowjetunion wegen Kuba keinen Krieg beginnen würde und fürchtete gleichzeitig, dass Mißverständnisse und falscher Stolz die beiden damaligen Supermächte in einen Krieg verwickeln könnten. Deshalb gab er die Richtlinie, im Falle des Bruchs der Blockade nur auf Steuerruder und Schiffsschrauben der sowjetischen Schiffe zu zielen, und die Priorität auf die Suche nach sowjetischen U-Booten zu legen und nicht auf das Durchsuchen der anzuhaltenden Schiffe.[7] .

About this Item: Frankfurt am Main, Fischer Taschenbuch Verlag, 1990. Taschenbuch. Kartoniert. Condition: Gut. Erste Auflage dieser Ausgabe. 526 (2) Seiten mit insgesamt 18 Photographien auf 4 Blatt und 8 Karten. Karten-Zeichnung: Hans Hefti. Umschlaggestaltung: Buchholz / Hinsch / Hensinger. Guter Zustand. Kleiner Kaffeefleck am Fuß (0,5 x 3 cm) der letzten Seiten. Wenig störend. Jahrelang haben sich die prospektiven kriegführenden Parteien auf den Krieg vorbereitet, Kriegsziele definiert, über Kontributionen für die Zeit danach nachgedacht - und auf einmal ist der Krieg wirklich da. Unaufhaltbar, wie ein Räderwerk, schnurrt der Kriegsapparat ab. Besonnene Beamte in den verschiedenen Ministerien in den verschiedenen Ländern stehen auf verlorenen Posten. Der Krieg war nicht mehr zu verhindern. Denn jede Macht war selbstverständlich von ihrem Sieg überzeugt und von ihrem Zugewinn. Barbara Tuchman schreibt an den Fakten und Dokumenten entlang und kommt zu der unwiderlegbaren Feststellung, soweit es sich um den Ersten Weltkrieg handelt: Wer sich auf den Krieg als politisches Mittel einläßt, kommt darin um. In Europa gingen, nach dem berühmten Diktum, im August 1914 die Lichter aus. Mit ihrem bekanntesten Buch lieferte Barbara Tuchman ein grandioses Stück narrativer Geschichtsschreibung. Auch nach rund fünfundzwanzig Jahren seit dem Ersterscheinen der Originalausgabe ist das Buch weder überholt noch überboten. - Barbara Wertheim Tuchman ['t?km?n] (* 30.

Johnson, der sozial denkende und innenpolitisch gewiefte Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten (1963-1969), im Vietnamkrieg auf seine innenpolitischen Erfahrungen verließ und damit im außenpolitischen Umfeld kläglich und fast unverschuldet Schiffbruch erlitt. Sie befasste sich weniger mit Strukturen[3], unentrinnbaren Gesetzmäßigkeiten, Epochen, Zyklen und Modellen der Geschichte als mit den Schwächen und Tugenden der Staatslenker in Entscheidungssituationen. Allgegenwärtig sind die Bornierten und die Wunschdenker, aber auch die charakterlichen und geistigen Lichtgestalten. Selbst Bezüge zur immer beliebter gewordenen Alltagsgeschichte stellte Tuchman nur sparsam her. Eine längere Untersuchung widmete sie allerdings der Mentalitäts- und Kulturgeschichte vor dem ersten Weltkrieg. Die Methoden der Politik- und Ereignisgeschichte seien nicht ausreichend, um ein Phänomen von so erschreckender Bösartigkeit zu erklären. Aus Geschichte kann man nach Tuchmans Überzeugung trotz aller Einmaligkeit des jeweils Geschehenen lernen; Politikberatung durch Historiker ist erlaubt und geboten. Auch die Politische Biographie hat ihre Berechtigung als Prisma der Geschichte. . Neben geschickter Heuristik pflegte Tuchman einen abwechslungsreichen und verständlichen Erzählstil, der zum Durchlesen der Bücher in einem Zug animiert und nicht nur zum Nachblättern. Die scheinbare wissenschaftliche Rückständigkeit von Tuchmans Methoden führte in der von ihr untersuchten Ereignis- und Politikgeschichte zu klaren und lebensnahen Urteilen. Dort werden die Protagonisten trotz aller Strukturen, Modelle und Mechanismen in Gewinner und Verlierer eingeteilt, nicht zuletzt von ihren Neben- und Randfiguren, die Ergebnisse politischen Handelns an Leib und Vermögen oft selbst am deutlichsten zu spüren bekommen. Bedeutung: John F. Kennedy hatte "August 1914" ebenfalls gelesen und erinnerte sich hieran, als die Seeblockade gegen Kuba vorbereitet wurde, die er am 22. Oktober 1962 für die Vereinigten Staaten vo. Seller Inventory # 61092

About this Item: American Heritage, New York, 1984. Hardcover. Presumed first edition/first printing. [8], 341, [1] p. Illustrations. Bibliographical Essay. Index. Introduction by Harrison E. Salisbury. Distributed by Houghton Mifflin Company. A study of the evolution of the foreign and military affairs of the USSR and United States since World War II, the various events bringing both nations to the edge of war-Berlin, Budapest, Cuba, Iran, Peking, the Middle East, and other happenings-the various personalities on both sides erupting these crises or resolving then, and the threat of nuclear war hanging over the world's populations and how they adapted to that threat. From Wikipedia: "Bernard Allen Weisberger (born 1922) is an American historian. He was born in New York. Weisberger taught American history at several universities including the University of Chicago and University of Rochester, where he was chair of the department. He has written more than a dozen books and worked on documentaries with Bill Moyers and Ken Burns. His Charles Ramsdell Prize winning article "The Dark and Bloody Ground of Reconstruction Historiography, " is considered a standard in the study of the Reconstruction period. He is a contributing editor of American Heritage, for which he wrote a regular column for ten years. Weisberger was also a member of the National Hillel Commission and a dedicated participant in the civil rights movement. His most recent books include The La Follettes of Wisconsin: Love and Politics in Progressive America (University of Wisconsin Press, 1994), America Afire: Adams, Jefferson, and the Revolutionary Election of 1800 (Morrow, 2000), and When Chicago Ruled Baseball: The Cubs-White Sox World series of 1906 (HarperCollins, 2006)." From Wikipedia: " Harrison Evans Salisbury (November 14, 1908 July 5, 1993), an American Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist (1955), was the first regular New York Times correspondent in Moscow after World War II. He was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He graduated from Minneapolis North High School in 1925 and the University of Minnesota in 1930. He spent nearly 20 years with United Press (UP), much of it overseas, and was UP's foreign editor during the last two years of World War II. Additionally, he was The New York Times' Moscow bureau chief from 1949-1954. Salisbury constantly battled Soviet censorship and won the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting in 1955. He twice (in 1957 and 1966) received the George Polk Award for Foreign Reporting. In the 1960s, he covered the growing civil rights movement in the Southern United States. From there, he directed The Times' coverage of President John F. Kennedy's assassination in 1963. In 1970, he created The Times' Op-Ed page and was assistant managing editor from 1964 1972, associate editor from 1972-1973. He retired from The Times in 1973. Salisbury was among the earliest mainstream journalists to oppose the Vietnam War after reporting from North Vietnam in 1966. He took much heat from the Johnson Administration and the political Right, but his previous standards of objectivity helped to sway journalistic opinion against the war. He is interviewed in the anti-Vietnam War documentary film In the Year of the Pig. He was the first American journalist to report on the Vietnam War from North Vietnam after having been invited there by the North Vietnamese government in late 1966. His report was the first that genuinely questioned the American air war. Salisbury reported extensively from Communist China, where, in 1989, he witnessed the bloody student uprising at Tiananmen Square. He wrote 29 books, including American in Russia (1955) and Behind the Lines Hanoi (1967). His other books include The Shook-Up Generation (1958), Orbit of China (1967), War Between Russia and China (1969), The 900 Days: The Siege of Leningrad (1969), To Peking and Beyond: A Report on the New Asia (1973), The Gates of Hell (1975), Black Night, White Snow: Russia's Revolutions 1905-1917 (1978), Without Fear or Favor: The New York Times and Its Times (1980), Journey For Our Times.

About this Item: Ballinger Publishing Company, Cambridge, MA, 1977. Hardcover. Presumed first edition/first printing. xx, 251, [14] p. Figures. Tables. References. Index. Information about the Contributors. In July 1975 the Canadian and American Pugwash groups held an information meeting at Pugwash, Nova Scotia, to discuss arms control implicaiton of the widening use of nuclear power reactors. It was recommended that an International Pugwash Symposium be organized to address this topic in a systematic and comprehensive way. This book is a report of that landmark symposium. This was published for the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. From Wikipedia: "Abram Chayes (July 18, 1922-April 16, 2000) was an American scholar of international law closely associated with the administration of John F. Kennedy. He is best known for his legal process approach to international law, which attempted to provide a new, less formalistic way of understanding international law and how it might further develop. By focusing on how international legal rules are actually used by foreign policy decision-makers, Chayes sought to study international law, not within a vacuum of legal rules and procedures, but in a dynamic political environment.After law school, Chayes was Legal Advisor to Governor Chester Bowles of Connecticut from 1949 to 1951, and then served in Washington, D.C., as Associate General Counsel of the President's Materials Policy Commission in 1951. He clerked for Justice Felix Frankfurter of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1951 to 1952, and practiced law privately with Covington & Burling in Washington, D.C., from 1952 to 1955. In 1955 he joined the faculty at Harvard Law School as an associate professor and began teaching courses in constitutional law and international law. In the late 1950s, Chayes was among the original members of a group of Harvard faculty members who worked on the presidential campaign of John F. Kennedy. He led the team that drafted the 1960 Democratic Convention platform, and was one of Kennedy's principal issues advisers during the campaign. When Kennedy was elected, he worked as Legal Adviser to the State Department. Chayes played an important role in a number of major crises, including the Berlin Crisis of 1961 and the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. He also worked on the Partial Test Ban Treaty of 1963 banning atmospheric nuclear tests. In 1964, Chayes worked at the law firm of Ginsburg & Feldman in Washington, D.C., before returning to Harvard Law School in 1965, where in 1976 he became the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law. Chayes developed a new international law course at Harvard and co-authored a widely used book, International Legal Process. He also taught civil procedure and authored a widely cited article in the Harvard Law Review on the legal remedies and the difficulty of dealing with domestic social issues legally. He became professor emeritus in 1993, but continued to teach until incapacitated by complications from pancreatic cancer. After leaving the Kennedy administration, Chayes remained politically active. He worked on the 1968 presidential campaign of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, wrote articles on nuclear arms control, co-authored a book with Jerome Wiesner, President Kennedy's Science Adviser, on Anti-Ballistic Missiles and strategic policy, and advised Democratic members of the Senate in the debate in the early 1970s over ABM deployment (he was a strong supporter of the ABM Treaty of 1972). In 1972, Chayes advised the presidential campaign of George McGovern on foreign policy matters, and in 1976 was a foreign policy adviser to the presidential campaign of Jimmy Carter. In the 1980s, Chayes argued on behalf of the Government of Nicaragua against the United States in the seminal International Court of Justice (ICJ) case Nicaragua v. United States. The ICJ ruled that the U.S. was guilty of "unlawful use of force" when it mined Nicaragua's harbors. Chayes also wrote articles arguing that the Reagan Administration was barred from testing and deployment of the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), or "Star Wars" under. Seller Inventory # 66895

About this Item: Sidgwick & Jackson, London, 2001. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Small quarto in b/w photo illus DJ; 300 p. : ill. ; 25 cm. "In 1961, with the Cold War at freezing point, a beautiful nineteen-year-old girl had an affair with the Secretary of State for War, John Profumo. She also had sex with a Russian spy. When the political time bomb exploded two years later, Britain's last grandee Government, that of Harold Macmillan, collapsed. But the social legacy was even more potent than the political one. As hemlines went up in the Sixties, inhibitions came down." "Christine Keeler's name is as synonymous with the sexual revolution as the Pill. She was the epicenter of the social and political earthquake that shook the world, but what she can now tell with mature insight will shatter all preconceptions about her and the legendary events. The political and diplomatic ramifications and the social and sexual antics of those around her were more far-reaching than ever imagined." "Recently seen FBI documents prove what Christine has always maintained about the intimate involvement of the Kennedy White House in her case and how J. Edgar Hoover took personal charge. But above all, this is the life's journey of a woman whom history has refused to let go, who can never escape being Christine Keeler. She is a headline for ever. It is a page-turning story of her enormous personal sacrifice, her unstinting resolve and her triumphant survival."--Jacket. || Contents: Machine generated contents note: 1 Nightlife, I -- 2 Fast Tracks, II -- 3 Upstairs, Downstairs, 24 -- 4 Hands On, 32 -- 5 Undressing for Dinner, 42 -- 6 Champagne Models, 58 -- 7 Traitors' Mews, 70 -- 8 Bad Luck, 89 -- 9 A Long, Hot Summer, Io2 -- 10 Love Letters, 114 -- II Cornered, i2I -- 2 The Smokin' Gun, 134 -- 13 Rabbit in the Headlines, i5i -- 14 Cruel Intentions, 158 -- 15 Confidential Agent, 178 -- 6 Midsummer Madness, I87 -- 17 Dangerous Deceptions, 20o -- 18 Rough Justice, 208 -- 19 The Trials of Christine Keeler, 215 -- 20 Lust and Marriage, 228 -- 21 Taxing Times, 242 -- 22 Such a Scandal, 253 -- Epilogue: Hindsight, 256 -- Appendix: The Christine Keeler Files, 262 -- Index. || Scandals -- Great Britain -- History -- 20th century.

About this Item: The Macmillan Company, New York, 1963. Hardcover. Condition: good. Dust Jacket Condition: fair to good. First Printing. 23 cm, 308 pages, chapter notes, index, tear & creases in rear DJ, DJ in plastic sleeve, "signed" sticker on DJ spine. Signed by the author. A hopeful report on the significant development of human freedom in the United States over the preceding fifty years. Civil and political rights are a class of rights that protect individuals' freedom from infringement by governments, social organizations, and private individuals. Civil rights include the ensuring of peoples' physical and mental integrity, life, and safety; protection from discrimination on grounds such as race, gender, national origin, color, age, political affiliation, ethnicity, religion, or disability; and individual rights such as privacy and the freedoms of thought, speech, religion, press, assembly, and movement. Civil and political rights form the original and main part of international human rights. They comprise the first portion of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights (with economic, social, and cultural rights comprising the second portion). From an obituary posted on-line: John P. Roche was a political scientist, counselor to Presidents and emeritus professor at Tufts University. He reached emeritus status as the John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of American Civilization and Foreign Affairs. His main areas of scholarship were political theory, constitutional law and the formative era of the American Republic.
