Greeks, Romans, Germans: How the Nazis Usurped Europe's Classical Past, Chapoutot, Johann
4 Chapoutot, Johann Greeks, Romans, Germans: How the Nazis Usurped Europe's Classical Past
Berkeley, California University of California Press, 2016 0520275721 / 9780520275720 Softcover As New Softcover 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
Sterling condition softcover copy, with unfurled tips, tight binding, and clean internals, showing only very slight shelf- and edge-wear. Volume contains scholarly apparatus in the form of, e.g., notes, index, and bibliography. Translated by Richard R. Nybakken. From the publisher's blurb, "Much has been written about the conditions that made possible Hitler s rise and the Nazi takeover of Germany, but when we tell the story of the National Socialist Party, should we not also speak of Julius Caesar and Pericles? Greeks, Romans, Germans argues that to fully understand the racist, violent end of the Nazi regime, we must examine its appropriation of the heroes and lessons of the ancient world. When Hitler told the assembled masses that they were a people with no past, he meant that they had no past following their humiliation in World War I of which to be proud. The Nazis constant use of classical antiquity-in official speeches, film, state architecture, the press, and state-sponsored festivities-conferred on them the prestige and heritage of Greece and Rome that the modern German people so desperately needed. At the same time, the lessons of antiquity served as a warning: Greece and Rome fell because they were incapable of protecting the purity of their blood against mixing and infiltration. To regain their rightful place in the world, the Nazis had to make all-out war on Germany s enemies, within and without.Volume contains scholarly apparatus in the form of, e.g., notes, index, and bibliography.

The British Army of the Rhine: Turning Nazi Enemies into Cold War Partners, Speiser, Peter
11 Speiser, Peter The British Army of the Rhine: Turning Nazi Enemies into Cold War Partners
Urbana, Illinois University of Illinois Press, 2016 0252040163 / 9780252040160 First Edition Hardcover As New As New Hardcover 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
Another fine contribution to the series, History of Military Occupation. Sterling condition hardcover copy, with unbruised tips, tight binding, and clean internals, showing only very slight shelf- and edge-wear; not ex-library, with neither underlining nor highlighting anywhere. Bright and shiny dust jacket, illustrated, showing only very minor wear, not price-clipped. Volume contains scholarly apparatus in the form of, e.g., notes, index, and bibliography. According to the publisher, "Between 1945 and 1957, West Germany made a dizzying pivot from Nazi bastion to Britain s Cold War ally against the Soviet Union. Successive London governments, though often faced with bitter public and military opposition, tasked the British Army of the Rhine (BAOR) to serve as a protecting force while strengthening West German integration into the Western defense structure. Peter Speiser charts the BAOR s fraught transformation from occupier to ally by looking at the charged nexus where British troops and their families interacted with Germany s civilian population. Examining the relationship on many levels, Speiser ranges from how British mass media representations of Germany influenced BAOR troops to initiatives taken by the Army to improve relations. He also weighs German perceptions, surveying clashes between soldiers and civilians and comparing the popularity of the British services with that of the other occupying powers. As Speiser shows, the BAOR s presence did not improve the relationship between British servicemen and the German populace, but it did prevent further deterioration during a crucial and dangerous period of the early Cold War. An incisive look at an under-researched episode, The British Army of the Rhine sheds new light on Anglo-German diplomatic, political and social relations after 1945, and evaluates their impact on the wider context of European integration in the postwar era." xiv + 203 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
