1 ABENDSCHÖN, Simone Growing into Politics : Contexts and Timing of Political Socialisation
ECPR Press / European Consortium for Political Research Press, 2013, ISBN:1907301429 
ABENDSCHÖN, Simone. Growing into Politics : Contexts and Timing of Political Socialisation. (Colchester, UK) : ECPR Press , (2013). Pp (4),[v]-x,(2),[1]- 280. 8vo, blue hardcovers. In the ECPR Studies in European Political Science series. "This book presents up-to-date empirical research on crucial questions of political socialisation. It suggests new approaches and answers to a classic, but still valid question of political socialisation research: 'Who learns what from whom, under what circumstances, and with what effects?' (Greenstein 1965: 13). The volume maintains that political socialisation is no universal or independent phenomenon, but one significantly shapedby the surrounding parameters of the society in which it is embedded. Ther efore, deficits in political socialisation research have become especially clear in light of political and societal changes over recent decades. The book contributes to two important discussions in the study of political socialisation: first, the question of the (relative) importance of socialisation agents and contexts, second - inextricably interwoven with the first - the timing of political socialisation. From a European perspective, articles in the volume shed light on old problems and topics of the field, using newmethodological approaches or dealing with long-neglected perspectives such as young children's democratic learning or political socialisation.. Inclu des quantitative approaches as well as innovative and explorative case studies." from rear cover. Contents : 1.

A volume in the Armies of the Napoleonic Wars Research Series.

"'Armies on the Danube 1809' is a history and organizational guide to one of the most bitterly contested and evenly matched campaigns of the Napoleonic era. In 1809, for the fifth time since the advent of the French Revolution, Austria declared yet another war on France. Determined to defeat the 'corrupting forces of revolution and anarchy who, by their very existence, threaten our way of life,' Emperor Francis II of Austriasent into the field a new army with the country's best general at its head . Learning from the humiliating, disastrous defeats of the Ulm - Austerlitz campaigns of 1805, Archduke Charles of Austria reorganized and retrained thecountry's armed forces in preparation for the inevitable renewed struggle against France. In 1809 his time came. With far-flung Napoleonic armies across Europe and Iberia, the Habsburgs mobilized and struck. Advantages of preparation and surprise yielded some initial successes but soon the Austro-Hungarian forces were driven back deep into their country by an adversary who was no ordinary general." -from the dustjacket.

"This is the first book to make a comparative study of the revolutionary movements that broke ou tin the Central Europeancountries at the end of the First World War. There have been monographs an d biographies and books on the German revolution, but no survey covering the whole field. d Revolution in Central Europe is based on on studies carried on over many years in many different archives, from Amsterdam to Munich, from Vienna to Graz, Klagenfurt and Innsbruck. It shows no t only what happened in the capitals—Berlin, Munich, Viena, Bdapest - but also in the smal towns and villages of the area. Its central theme is the rise and the decline of the Workers' and Soldiers' Councils, which flourished for a few months and exercised considerable influence, but never developed into Soviets inthe Russian sense and soon lost their power. The book also describes the a ctivities of he nascent Communist Parties, the role of Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, the new armies and their politics, the beginnings of right-wing extremism, and the relations of of the Gemans with their neighbours. In doing so is makes use of a multitude of sources which have never been used before, especially of many of the documents and the correspondenaice leftby the Workers' and the Soldiers' Councils. At a time when these Councils have acquired a new political significance it discusse their development and the causes of their failure, a faikure that weakened the whole democraticmovement in Cantral Europe. It is thus not only a historical study of an i mportant movement: it is also of great political and social interest." (from the dj). Contents : introduction: Before the Revolution. 1.

DEÁK, István. Beyond Nationalism : A Social and Political History of the Habsburg Officer Corps, 1848-1918. New York and Oxford : Oxford University Press, 1990. First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-xiii,(3),[3]-273,(5), + 10 p. of black-and-white photographs. 8vo, blue cloth spine, mustard yellow paper-covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. "In the last seventy years of its long, colorful existence, the Habsburg monarchy provided the conditions for social, economic, and cultural progress in a vast area inhabited by eleven major nationalities and almost as many religious affiliations. Although increasingly plagued by the forces of rising nationalism, the monarchy still preserved domestic peace. After the Compromise Agreement of 1867, which created the Austro-Hungarian Dual Monarchy, its continuance was assured by two factors only: Francis Joseph, who was at once emperor of Austria and king of Hungary, and the armed forces whose bulk formed the so-called Joint or Common Army. This study investigates the social origin, education, training, code of honor, lifestyle, and political role of the Habsburg officers. A distinctive trait of the officer corps was its simultaneous feudal and enlightened character. While clinging to an anachronistic code of honor which set them above the law, the officers submitted to parliamentary control and willingly accepted members of the new bourgeoisie -- among them an astonishing number of Jews." - from the dustjacket.

DUNN, Brenda. The History of Port-Royal / Annapolis Royal, 1605 - 1800.(Halifax, NS) : "Nimbus Publishing Ltd. and The Historical Association of Annapolis Royal", (2004). First Edition. Pp. (3),iv-x,1-286. Illustrated. With maps to endpapers. 8vo, green cloth, gilt titles to spine.

A chronicle of the first two hundred years of the Nova Scotia town, once the capital of Acadia. With descriptions of the political and military conflicts which were centred there, in addition to the influence of the Acadian and British settlers in and around the area.

"The quiet, picturesque town of Annapolis Royal stands in startling contrast to its turbulent history: known as Port-Royal until 1710, the community was the centre of early European settlement, the capital first of Acadia, then of Nova Scotia, and a focus of hostilities in every war between Great Britain and France in the seventeenth and eighteenth cen­turies. The cradle of Acadia in the 1600s, the town was one of the prin­cipal settings of the tragic Acadian deportation in 1755. A History of Port-Royal / Annapolis Royal 1605-1800 chronicles the first two hun­dred years of this community, describing with clarity and depth not only the political and military con­flicts, but also Acadian and British social life, a significant influence on the town over the centuries." - from the dj.

19 FEDYSHYN, Oleh S. Germany's Drive to the East and the Ukrainian Revolution, 1917-1918. First Edition in dustjacket

FEDYSHYN, Oleh S. Germany's Drive to the East and the Ukrainian Revolution,1917-1918. New Brunswick, New Jersey : Rutgers University Press, (1971). F irst Edition. Pp (6),[vii]-xii,(2),[3]-401,(3). Maps. 8vo, red cloth, blacklettering to spine, top edge dyed bluish-grey. Oleh Sylvester Fedyshyn (b. 1928, Ukraine - d. February 3, 2006, New York City). "The years 1917 and 1 918 were critical and unhappy years in the history of the Ukraine, as well as of other states that were to be established on the ruins of the Czarist Empire. In January 1918, in fulfillment of a centuries-old desire for national and political autonomy from Russia, the Central Rada, a freely constituted body of Ukrainian leaders, proclaimed the Ukraine an independent state.In the following month. in a desperate attempt to prevent tne Bolsheviks f rom gaining control over the rich Ukrainian lands, the Rada signed a separate peace with the Central Powers at Brest-Litovsk. Concluded at a moment when the European east was in chaos, this treaty opened the way for German military occupation and political domination of the Ukraine. In this meticulously researched book, Professor Oleh S. Fedyshyn provides a study of the evolution of Imperial Germany's occupation policies and German relations withthe complex internal situation in the Ukraine and other eastern lands. Alt hough he is primarily concerned with the Reich's drive into the Ukraine andwith the Ukrainian independence movement, Professor Fedyshyn deals also wi th Austrian aims in the Ukraine, the problem of rile Crimea and the Black Sea, the Polish question, and Russian-German relations of the period. Some of the most interesting aspects of this fresh examination of the Reich's eastern gamble during World War I have to do with the frictions and rivalry between the Reich's war lords and the German Foreign Office. As Professor Fedyshyn points out, events in the east, and even the destinies of the war, might have developed along entirely different lines had the Reich pursued a different or less ambivalent eastern polcy, or had different officials been appointed to administer the occupation. He offers a close analysis of German maneuverings with respect to the overthrow of the Rada and the establishment of General Skoropadsky's Hetmanate as they were dictated by both ideological or expansionist projections and short-range economic and military considerations. Professor Fedyshyn bases his book principally on German and Austrian archival materials captured by the Allies during World War II, afterthe fall of Berlin. Scholarly and restrained, Professor Fedyhyn is none th e less clear in expressing his differences with other interpretations of Germany's eastern aims during World War I. What emerges is a realistic view of one policy during this period, as well as discussion of a significant phase of the Ukrainian national movement. This earlier German involment in theaffairs of the second largest ethnic group of the Czarist Empire helps to explain the repeated German occupation of the Ukraine during World War II and the Ukrainian response to the Germans in both wars."
