Download PDF Trauma, Experience and Narrative in Europe After World War II by Ville Kivimäki and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2022 with total page 343 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book promotes a historically and culturally sensitive understanding of trauma during and after World War II. Focusing especially on Eastern and Central Europe, its contributors take a fresh look at the experiences of violence and loss in 1939-45 and their long-term effects in different cultures and societies. The chapters analyze traumatic experiences among soldiers and civilians alike and expand the study of traumatic violence beyond psychiatric discourses and treatments. While acknowledging the problems of applying a present-day medical concept to the past, this book makes a case for a cultural, social and historical study of trauma. Moving the focus of historical trauma studies from World War I to World War II and from Western Europe to the east, it breaks new ground and helps to explain the troublesome politics of memory and trauma in post-1945 Europe all the way to the present day. This book is an outcome of a workshop project 'Historical Trauma Studies,' funded by the Joint Committee for the Nordic Research Councils in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NOS-HS) in 2018-20. Chapters 4, 5 and 6 are available open access under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License via link.springer.com.

Download PDF OPEN/ Pierre's journey after war by Margareth Stewart and published by Majestic . This book was released on 2021-01-28 with total page 136 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: OPEN - Pierre’s Journey after War is an intimate story of a man whose wife and children are killed during bombardments of France in WWII. Devastated and embittered, Pierre leaves everything behind and embarks on an odyssey to bury his past in the darkest recesses of his mind. The journey, which lasts more than forty years, involves a sequence of events and coincidences that ultimately provide him new direction and a sense of purpose. Pierre feels at home in moving from place to place. When his mission in a specific village or town is accomplished, he wanders once again, observing and savouring whatever life offers. His activities are circumstantial and unpredictable. Intuitively, he remains on the move to reconcile his past while his future stands still. He returns to France an old man. On a day on a walk past vineyards near his former home, Pierre is offered a lift by a couple whose absurd, whimsical presence vividly contrasts with whatever solemn tranquillity he’d found through his consequential journey and search for redemption. Pierre for the first time is inspired to speak of his past.
Download PDF After War, Is Faith Possible? by Geoffrey A. Studdert Kennedy and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2008-05-01 with total page 238 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: There are no words foul and filthy enough to describe war. So declared Geoffrey Woodbine Willie Studdert Kennedy (1883-1929), a decorated frontline chaplain whose battlefield experiences in World War I transformed him into his generation's most eloquent defender of Christian pacificism. Studdert Kennedy was also a tireless champion of the social gospel who wrote a dozen books, scores of articles, hundreds of poems, and preached countless sermons in both the UK and the US promoting economic justice. Studdert Kennedy's writing and preaching influenced an entire generation. William Temple, Archbishop of Canterbury, described him as a true prophet. Even though he's fallen into obscurity with the passage of years, Studdert Kennedy's message still inspires the likes of Desmond Tutu and Jÿrgen Moltmann. This collection of Studdert Kennedy's work, the first in sixty years, seeks to introduce this most relevant of thinkers to our troubled times. The book pulls together Studdert Kennedy's most important writings on war and peace, poverty, the problem of evil, the church's role in the world, sin and atonement, the suffering God, love versus force as world powers, and the beloved community. Editor Kerry Walters introduces the texts with a biographical and thematic essay.
Download PDF The War After by Anne Karpf and published by Faber & Faber. This book was released on 2013-07-04 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Anne Karpf's parents survived the Nazi Holocaust. Her mother, a concert pianist when she was eighteen, was a survivor of Plaszow and Auschwitz concentrations camps. Her father survived several Russian labour camps. When they came to Britain in 1947, their pasts came with them. In this thought-provoking and moving memoir, Anne Karpf explores the profound impact of her parents' wartime experiences on her daily life. Combining a gripping account of her parents' survival, a sharp examination of the history of British attitudes to Jews and to the Holocaust, and turning an often wryly comic eye on the parent-child struggle, The War After is a fascinating and deeply touching story. When originally published in 1996 it was widely acclaimed: 'Painful and honest.' Observer 'Fascinating and revealing.' Literary Review 'Anne Karpf is a skilled storyteller, moving naturally between her own history and that of her parents in a way that neither intrudes nor distorts.' TLS 'A vibrantly live memoir about growing up in a Holocaust home ... At times brutally sad, The War After is also a rich and funny exploration of the struggle between a child and her parents.' Independent on Sunday
Download PDF Love After War by Kathleen Hope and published by Vdv Publishing. This book was released on 2018-01-02 with total page 78 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Ida Prayig had a bad feeling every time she walked into the Veterans Affairs office. She knew they were trying to help her. She knew that in a very logical part of her mind, but that part was too often drowned out by the rage and the fear that had come to be a part of her daily life since she’d returned home from her most recent deployment. When they asked her, in the quiet voices one uses for a child, what they could do to help her, she’d been very straightforward. “Make me walk again.” They would sigh each time she said it, explain again that the remaining tissue in her legs was a hindrance to any functional prosthetic use. Then the conversation would turn around again, back to the idea of further amputation. But she wanted to walk, not lose more of herself than she already had. The doctors didn’t understand, they couldn’t, they still had all their limbs. The bomb had been cleverly hidden, hidden from everyone, even the dogs. She didn’t blame them because she was flying ten feet through the air before she figured it out. After the bomb, everything had gone dark, and when she woke up her feet were gone. Just like that, a piece of her was missing. Her own canine partner, Rohan, had been several feet away, saving him from the brunt of the blast. They’d retired him anyway, letting him stay by Ida’s side. She wished she was home with him now instead of sitting in a waiting room filled with pitying looks and avoided glances. She wouldn’t let them take any more from her, no way. Even if it meant being stuck in this wheelchair. Even if it meant...
Download PDF After the Civil War by Michael Richards and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 2013-08-01 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Spanish Civil War was fought not only on the streets and battlefields from 1936 to 1939 but also through memory and trauma in the decades that followed. This fascinating book reassesses the eras of war, dictatorship and transition to democracy in light of the memory boom in Spain since the late 1990s. It explores how the civil war and its repressive aftermath have been remembered and represented from 1939 to the present through the interweaving of war memories, political power and changing social relations. Acknowledgement and remembrance were circumscribed during the war's immediate aftermath and only the victors were free to remember collectively during the long Franco era. Michael Richards recasts social memory as a profoundly historical product of migration, political events and evolving forms of collective identity through the 1950s, the transition to democracy in the 1970s, and in the bitterly contested politics of memory since the 1990s.
Download PDF Germany After the First World War by Richard Bessel and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 1993 with total page 342 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is a social history of Germany in the years following the First World War. Germany's defeat and the subsequent demobilization of her armies had enormous economic, social, and psychological consequences for the nation, and it is these which Richard Bessel sets out to explore. Dr Bessel examines the changes brought by the War to Germany, by the return of the soldiers to civilian life and by the demobilization of the economy. He demonstrates how the postwar transition was viewed as a moral crusade by Germans desperately concerned about challenges to traditional authority; and he assesses the ways in which the experiences and memories of the War affected the politics of the Weimar Republic. This original and scholarly book offers important insights into the sense of dislocation, both personal and national, experienced by Germany and Germans after the First World War, and the damaging legacy of the War for German democracy.

Download PDF Peacekeeping, Policing, and the Rule of Law after Civil War by Robert A. Blair and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 2020-11-30 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The rule of law is indispensable for sustained peace, good governance, and economic growth, especially in countries recovering from civil war. Yet despite its importance, we know surprisingly little about how to restore the rule of law in the wake of conflict. In this book, Robert A. Blair proposes a new theory to explain how the international community can help establish the rule of law in the world's weakest and most war-torn states, focusing on the crucial but often underappreciated role of the United Nations. Blair tests the theory by drawing on original household surveys in Liberia, highly disaggregated data on UN personnel and activities across Africa, and hundreds of interviews with UN officials, local leaders, citizens, and government and civil society representatives. The book demonstrates that UN intervention can have a deeper, more lasting, and more positive effect on the rule of law than skeptics typically believe.
Download PDF An Afternoon in May by George Tomezsko and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2007-01-26 with total page 100 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An Afternoon in May is the true story of four companies of heroes. In May of 1864 the Corps of Cadets, mostly teenagers, from the Virginia Military Institute helped turn the tide of battle at an obscure Virginia town called New Market. Though little-known outside the South, their story is arguably one of the most compelling military stories in American history. This book should, therefore, capture the attention of not only historians but of anyone with an interest in the War Between the States. But it should also command the attention of a wider audience. It is a must-read for anyone seeking examples of inspiration. NOTE: this book is available in ebook format!
Download PDF Globalization and Armed Conflict by Gerald Schneider and published by Rowman & Littlefield Publishers. This book was released on 2003-06-11 with total page 379 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Globalization and Armed Conflict addresses one of the most important and controversial issues of our time: Does global economic integration foster or suppress violent disputes within and between states? Here, cutting-edge research by leading figures in international relations shows that expanding commercial ties between states pacifies some, but not necessarily all, political relationships. The authors demonstrate that the pacific effect of economic integration hinges on democratic structures, the size of the global system, the nature of the trade goods, and a reduced influence of the military on political decisions. In sum, this book demonstrates how important the still fragile "capitalist peace" is.
