West Germany and Israel - Foreign Relations, Domestic Politics, and the Cold War, 1965-1974 (Paperback): Carole Fink West Germany and Israel - Foreign Relations, Domestic Politics, and the Cold War, 1965-1974 (Paperback)
Carole Fink

By the late 1960s, West Germany and Israel were moving in almost opposite diplomatic directions in a political environment dominated by the Cold War. The Federal Republic launched ambitious policies to reconcile with its Iron Curtain neighbors, expand its influence in the Arab world, and promote West European interests vis-a-vis the United States. By contrast, Israel, unable to obtain peace with the Arabs after its 1967 military victory and threatened by Palestinian terrorism, became increasingly dependent upon the United States, estranged from the USSR and Western Europe, and isolated from the Third World. Nonetheless, the two countries remained connected by shared security concerns, personal bonds, and recurrent evocations of the German-Jewish past. Drawing upon newly-available sources covering the first decade of the countries' formal diplomatic ties, Carole Fink reveals the underlying issues that shaped these two countries' fraught relationship and sets their foreign and domestic policies in a global context.

Bern, Berlin, Bruxelles, Frankfurt/M., New York, Oxford, Wien. Collection de l'Association internationale d'histoire contemporaine de l'Europe publiee sous la direction de Jean-Claude Favez. This book deals with a remarkable period of human history from the end of Second World War to the end of the Cold War, when Europe established the world's most advanced human-rights regime. During this half century a continent, divided by arms and ideology, divested of its colonial empires, and faced with a huge influx of foreigners, drew on old ideas and on post-First World War experiments, to expand the political, judicial, and diplomatic practices of human-rights advocacy and protection. The book contains the major part of the contributions of the colloquium of the 19th International Congress of Historical Sciences held in Oslo in August 2000. It represents one of the first collaborative, historical inquiries into the field of human rights. Cet ouvrage traite d'une periode importante de l'histoire europeenne, qui s'etend de la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale jusqu'a la fin de la guerre froide. Elle a ete marquee par l'instauration en Europe du regime des droits de l'homme le plus avance du monde. Durant ce demi-siecle, le continent europeen, divise sur le plan strategique et ideologique, depouille de ses possessions coloniales, confronte a un vaste afflux d'immigres, s'est engage a developper des instruments politiques, judiciaires et diplomatiques de protection et de defense des droits de l'homme. Ce livre reunit la majeure partie des contributions du colloque tenu a Oslo en aout 2000 dans le cadre du XIX(e) Congres international des sciences historiques. Il s'agit d'une des premieres enqueteshistoriques dans le domaine des droits de l'homme, entreprise avec la collaboration d'historiens de divers horizons.

Ostpolitik, 1969-1974 - European and Global Responses (Paperback): Carole Fink, Bernd Schaefer Ostpolitik, 1969-1974 - European and Global Responses (Paperback)
Carole Fink, Bernd Schaefer
R756 Discovery Miles 7 560 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Recent studies of the Cold War transcend a narrow focus on four decades of superpower rivalry, recognizing that leaders and governments outside of Washington and Moscow also exerted political, economic, and moral influence well beyond their own borders. One striking example was the Ostpolitik of Chancellor Willy Brandt, which not only redefined Germany s relation with its Nazi past but also altered the global environment of the Cold War. This book examines the years 1969 1974, when Brandt broke the Cold War stalemate in Europe by assuming responsibility for the crimes of the Third Reich and by formally renouncing several major West German claims, while also launching an assertive policy toward his Communist neighbors and conducting a deft balancing act between East and West. Not everyone then, or now, applauds the ethos and practice of Ostpolitik, but no one can deny its impact on German, European, and world history.

Statesmen and scholars were inspired by a period after World War I (when the victors devised Minority Treaties for the new and expanded states of Eastern Europe) at the time that the Cold War ended between 1989-1991. This book is the first study of that period--between 1878 and 1938--when the Great Powers established a system of external supervision to reduce the threats in Europe's most volatile regions of Irredentism, persecution, and uncontrolled waves of westward migration. It is a study of the strengths and weaknesses of an early state of international human rights diplomacy as practiced by rival and often-uninformed Western political leaders, ardent but divided Jewish advocates, and aggressive state minority champions, in the tumultuous age of nationalism and imperialism, Bolshevism and fascism between Bismarck and Hitler.

When the Cold War ended between 1989 and 1991, statesmen and scholars reached back to the period after World War I when the victors devised minority treaties for the new and expanded states of Eastern Europe. This book is the first study of the entire period between 1878 and 1938, when the great powers established a system of external supervision to reduce the threats in Europe's most volatile regions of irredentism, persecution, and uncontrolled waves of westward migration. It is a study of the strengths and weaknesses of an early state of international human rights diplomacy as practised by rival and often-uninformed Western political leaders, by ardent but divided Jewish advocates, and also by aggressive state minority champions, in the tumultuous age of nationalism and imperialism, bolshevism and fascism between Bismarck and Hitler.

One of the largest twentieth century summit meetings, the Genoa Conference of 1922, was also a notable failure, due to the gulf between the Allies and Germany, between the West and Soviet Russia, and among the World War I victors and their small allies. This book, a unique international collaboration, presents various perspectives on the Genoa Conference: its leadership, goals, and outcome. The authors present new findings on such questions as the sensational Rapallo Treaty between Germany and Russia; the strategy of the small neutral powers; and the policy of the United States toward European debts. Readers will find contrasting as well as complementary views in this volume.

1968: The World Transformed provides an international perspective on the most tumultuous year in the era of the Cold War. Authors from Europe and the United States explain why the crises of 1968 erupted almost simultaneously in vastly different cultures and societies. Together, the eighteen chapters provide an interdisciplinary and comparative approach to the rise and fall of protest movements worldwide by integrating international relations, the role of media, and the cross-cultural exchange of people and ideas into the global history of 1968.

R2,245 Discovery Miles 22 450 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This is the first biography of Marc Bloch (1886-1944), historian, soldier in both world wars, and leader of the Resistance, who was captured, tortured, and died a heroic death. Based largely on Bloch's private letters, diaries and papers, as well as on other unpublished documents, it traces the remarkable life of this French-Jewish patriot under the Third Republic. As an historian, Bloch is perhaps best known for The Historian's Craft, an inspiring set of meditations on his life's work, and as co-founder of the now legendary journal Annales, which gave rise to a major school of historical writing. Profoundly influenced by the dark events that shaped his era - world wars, anti-semitism, and totalitarianism - Bloch has become something of an intellectual hero of our century, his life an epitome of the endeavour to uphold, in the face of such events, the spirit of unfettered critical enquiry.

Les nouvelles frontieres sont l'un des resultats les plus visibles des deux guerres mondiales en Europe. Les Actes des colloques de Strasbourg et de Montreal abordent la question de l'etablissement des frontieres apres les deux guerres mondiales dans une perspective comparative, en depassant la sphere purement diplomatique pour englober les aspects economiques, culturels et sociaux. Ils font ressortir la complexite croissante des problemes avec l'irruption des opinions publiques dans les relations internationales et le poids accru des considerations economiques et culturelles. Mais les frontieres en Europe sont, en derniere analyse, comme par le passe, la traduction spatiale d'un equilibre entre les puissances. La grande nouveaute des deux apres-guerres est l'intervention decisive de puissances non-europeennes dans la determination des nouveaux equilibres. The establishment of new frontiers in Europe was one of the most significant results of the two World Wars. The proceedings of two international conferences, in Strasbourg and Montreal, treat this question from a comparative historical point of view. This book not only deals with the purely diplomatic sphere but also includes the economic, cultural, social, and political dimensions of frontier changes. These proceedings analyze the impact of public opinion on contemporary international relations. They also illustrate the global aspects of European politics as well as the role of outside states in the alteration of Europe's borders and in the quest for a new power balance in the two postwar periods."
