2 ALEXANDER, Martin S. Republic in Danger : General Maurice Gamelin and the Politics of French Defence, 1933-1940. First Edition in dustjacket, signed by author
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1992, ISBN:0521372348 
ALEXANDER, Martin S. The Republic in Danger : General Maurice Gamelin and the Politics of French Defence, 1933-1940. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, (1992). First Edition. Pp (12),[xi]-xiv,1-573,(3). Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "This is the first full-length study in English of the career of one of France's most controversial military leaders, General Maurice Gamelin (1872-1958). Gamelin was reviled by many of his contemporaries and denigrated by historians as 'the man who lost the Battle of France'. Here Gamelin is re-appraised in the context of the unstable civil-military relations and national decline of the years 1933-40. Basing his account on hitherto inaccessible primary sources and on public and private archives. The evidence reviewed, including Gamelin's private headquarters' diary, provides the basis for a revision of the earlier hostile portraits of the general. The author argues that less attention should be paid to the campaign in France in 1940, by which time Gamelin's role was that of co-ordinator and adviser. Rather, he suggests that great credit is due to Gamelin for his success in holding together the pre-war civil-military consensus, and for re-arming France by 1939." Contents : Introduction : Maurice Gamelin,the defence of France and the decline of the Third Republic. 1. The making of a republican general; 2. Gamelin and the rebirth of German power; 3. Fi rst responses: defence versus détente in the Laval era; 4. The Popular Front, the army and politics; 5. The road to rearmament: Gamelin, Daladier and Popular Front defence policy; 6.

Bacon, Jr. Stanford, California : Hoover Institution Press, Stanford University, (1979). First Edition. Pp (7),[viii[-xv,(3),[3]-212,(4). Map. Index. 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering to front board and cloth. Hoover Institution Publication 180. Hoover Archival Documentaries. "Behind Closed Doors: Secret Papers on the Failure of Romanian-Soviet Negotiations, 1931-1932 offers an array of primary source material now placed at thedisposal of those interested in Romanian-Soviet relations, as well as glob al European affairs, at an important juncture of history. The bulk of this volume is comprised of 103 documents, translated from the original Romanianor French, and represents the most important part of a much larger documen tary collection. The latter can be found under the heading, "U.S.S.R. PeaceNegotiations 1931-32," among the papers of Titulescu in the Archives of th e Hoover Institution. Together with an introductory essay, these previouslyunpublished documents provide a detailed account of Romanian-Soviet negoti aions for a nonagression pact. The importance of this volume goes beyond these specific negotiations that failed. The real problem concerned Bessarabia, a region considered by Romania to be a part of its national patrimony, aclaim stubbornly disputed by the Soviets. In this sense the Bessarabian is sue, vigorously debated in the early 1930s maintains both its historic and historiographic significance; it has not lost its current political implications. But even the prcpblem of Bessarabia had become transcended by wider international issues, such as the attempts of Soviet diplomacy to reduce tensions along its European borders due to emerging Japanese expansionism in the Far East. Important, also, were the specific policies of other Europeansiates, especially France and Poland, to promote their own interests while trying to arrive at form.ulas of broader interstate and international coop eration. In this sense the documents reproduced in this volume offer a mostinstructive and often fascinating description of now secret diplomacy took place at a time when a strong belief existed in achieving a lasting peace through non-aggression pacts. Apart from intricacies of the diplomatic game, the introductory essay and documents themselves illuminate the personalities and skills of prominent diplomats and statesmen : Josef Beck, Edouard Herriot, Maxim Litvinov, Nicolae Titulescu, among others."

Documents : - Preliminaries to Negotiations, May-December 1931; - The Riga Negotiations, January 1932; - Developments from February to June 1932; - The Polish-Soviet Pact, June-July 1932;- The Final Phase, August-October 1932.

16 BALFOUR, Michael Adversaries : America, Russia and the Open World 1941-62. Firs Editon in dustjacket
Routledge & Kegan Paul, London, Boston and Henley, 1981, ISBN:071000687X 
BALFOUR, Michael. The Adversaries : America, Russia and the Open World 1941-62. London, Boston and Henley : Routledge & Kegan Paul, (1981). First Edition. Pp (6),vii-xv,(1),1-259,(1). Index. 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "The AtJantic Charter of 1941 constituted the West's blue-print for post-war society. Accordingly it is here that Michael Balfour begins his account of how America and Russia developed as the rival super-powers' in that society. By 1962 the American concept of an Open World had brought a widedegree of political and economic freedom to half the globe, together with an unprecedented and apparently lasting affluence. Command Economies, however, are incompatible with Open Worlds. Rather than fall into line with the American design, the Soviet Union persevered with its conflicting system and thereby divided the world into two antagonistic halves. This new political pattern generated the crucial question of the post-war years: will the clash of views end in war or can the two halves learn to co-exist ? By 1962 it began to look as if this question could be answered optimistically, and it is here that the narrative part of the book ends after covering the economic and strategic aspects as well as the politics. In a concluding chapter the author relects on these developments and on the possibility that 1962 was a false dawn." (from the dj), Contents : Chapter 1. 1941-5. 1.
