1 ABRAHAM, Richard KERENSKY, Alexander Alexander Kerensky : The First Love of the Revolution. First British Edition in dustjacket
Sidgwick & Jackson, London, 1987, ISBN:0283994762 
ABRAHAM, Richard. Alexander Kerensky : The First Love of the Revolution. London : Sidgwick & Jackson, (1987). First British Edition. Pp (8),[ix]-xii,(3),[1]-503,(1), frontispiece + 32 pp plates. Index. 8vo, yellow cloth, giltlettering to black panel on spine. "In July 1917, Alexander Kerensky succe eded Prince Lvov as premier of Russia's Provisional Government, which was estabJished after the February overthrow of Czar Nicholas II. Kerenskv was himself deposed later that year by Lenin's Bolsheviks, causing him fo flee to Paris where he became an active propagandist against the Soviet regime. In 1940, he emigrated to the United States, where he lived until his death in 1970. In this innovative biography, Richard Abraham offers a comprehensive analysis of Kerensky's politics and an intimate portrait of the man and his turbulent times. Tracing the course of Kerensky's career from obscure political trials to open, conspiraionai organizations, leadership, and finally exile, Abraham demonstrates that Kerensky was the representative and charismatic leader of the rank-and-file of the Russian intelligentsia. His prominence in 1917 was therefore no accident, but the fruit of his unremitting commitment to revolution, and of efforts which almost triggered a revolution as early as 1915. The author confirms that Kerensky played a crucial rolein forestalling any rallying of the Right before the October Revolution an d reexamines the accusation that he and his Socialist Revolutionary comrades were responsible for the horrors of the civil war. Kerenskv's belief in parliamentary democracy is evident in Abraham's concise account of his fiftyyears in exile. " (from the dj). Contents : Preface. 1. Inspector Kerensky 's Career. 2.

4 AKAHA, Tsuneo Japan in Global Ocean Politics. First Edition in dustjacket
University of Hawaii Press , Honolulu, 1985, ISBN:0824808983 
AKAHA, Tsuneo . Japan in Global Ocean Politics. Honolulu : University of Hawaii Press and Law of the Sea Institute, University of Hawaii, (1985). First Printing. Pp (8),[ix]-xii,[1]-224,(4). Text maps. 8vo, blue cloth. "National enclosure of the world's oceans is one of the most important global trends to have emerged during the second half of the twentieth century. Awareness of the real and potential value of the ocean and its resources and recognition of the growing s carcity of natural resources on land have promptednation-states to claim and exert control over wide areas of the hitherto u nclaimed oceans and their riches. Japan in Global Ocean Politics is a detailed study of a mighty ocean nation's reaction to the demise of the traditional ocean regime based on the principle of freedom of the seas and its adjustment to the emergence of a new order characterized by national ocean enclosure. Japan's traditional maritime interests, particularly shipping and fishing, defined the country's role in global ocean politics until the middleof the 1970s; its posture was reactive, and even recalcitrant, on most law of the sea issues. In 1976-1977 Japan changed its policy in favor of accep ting extended coastal jurisdiction for others as well as for itself. The author explains why and intricately describes the process of policy making that took place amid competing domestic and interna tional pressures. In accommodating its diplomatic, economic, and security interests Japan imposed a formidable task on its public and private sectors, one that was accomplished with innovative policy adjustments, particularly in the manner in which the territorial sea limit and fishery jurisdiction were extended." Chapters : 1. The International Political Economy of Ocean Management and Japan; 2. The First and Second United Nations Conferences on the Law of the Sea; 3. Japan's Fight against the Proliferation of Expansionist Coastal States' Claims; 4. The United Nations Seabed Committee; 5. The Caracas-to-Geneva Session of the Third UNCLOS; 6.

In what ways does this dependence i nfluence the conditions, forms, and outcomes of colective action in those small countries, including the occurrence of revolutions and the institutionalization of political systems? To answer these questions, Risto Alapuro focuses on the experience of Finland. He provides an insightful political, economic, and social history of the country since 1809. Then, using two key events - the first parliamentary elections with universal suffrage in 1907 andthe abortive revolution in 1917-1918 - he analyzes the unique factors that govern politics in a small, dependent country. Although Alapuro points to the distinctiveness of the Finnish case, he also raises questions that willopen a whole new realm of inquiry in the study of relations among small an d large countries."

10 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.

"The Tatars, an Islamic people native to the Crimea in the Soviet Union, burst into world consciousness in the summer of 1987 when large numbers of them tested glasnost by demonstrating in Red Sauare, protesting eviction from their homeland during World War II. To Stalin and his regime, the Tatars had been collaborator with the Nazis: but the Tatars claim that an entire people was made to suffer for the crimes of a few. and tiie real reason for their resettlement was to populate the strategic Crimean area with ethnic Russians. Since 1944 deportation - in which large numbers died - Tatars have long soughtto return to the Crimea from what they consider exile and detention in Uzb ekistan. The contributors to this volume consider the issues involved in the case, analyze recent developments, and offer important personal witness to the events." (from the dj). Contents : 1.

Columbia University Press, New York & London, 1971, ISBN:0231034938 
ALLWORTH, Edward, ed. Soviet Nationality Problems. Editor: Edward Allworth.New York & London : Columbia University Press, 1971. First Printing. Pp. ( 4),[v]-xiv,(4),[1]-296. 8vo, brown cloth with copper lettered black title block to spine. "The nationality question was supposedly closed within the USSR over forty years ago. It has, however, been dramatically reopened by fresh generations of educated leaders emerging among all the major Soviet nationalities. They have made obsolete the old Russian-Communist policy of extending token recognition to nationality groups officially differentiated mainly by reference to variations in language, folklore, or costume. Economicadvance and disproportionate population increases among many nationalities have added impetus to this awakening. With self-determination the watchwor d in most other developing countries, it is evident that the Kremlin leadership now faces an array of modern problems in its old-fashioned empire. Simultaneously, social and technological changes are forcing the Soviet nationalities to reconsider courses of action crucial to their future. The present volume demonstrates the extraordinary range of nationality problems besetting the USSR. The issues are considered broadly and their possible resolutions are examined from both a contemporary and historical perspective. The authors scrutinize significant problems through the methodologies supplied by key academic disciplines. Research sources for nationality study are discussed in a bibliographical section; maps and tables summarize census and other current data about the nationality question." - from the dustjacket.

ANDREYEV, Catherine. Vlasov and the Russian Liberation Movement : Soviet reality and emigre theories. Cambridge, New York, Port Chester, Melbourne, Sydney : Cambridge University Press, (1989).

Soviet and East European Studies, number 51. "'Vlasov and the Russian Liberation Movement' deals with the attempt by Soviet citizens to create a Russian anti-Stalinist liberation movement during the Second World War. These Soviet citizens were mainly prisoners-of-war, forced labourers or part of thepopulation of the occupied territories of the USSR. The Liberation Movemen t was encouraged by German officers who disagreed with Nazi policy towards the USSR, as their experience showed that treating the population as 'sub-humans' (Untermensch) merely increased resistance to Nazi occupation. Throughout the development of the Liberation Movement there existed a divergence of aims between the Russian members who wished to form an army and a political movement which would effect change within the USSR, and its German supporters who merely wished to alter the type of propaganda directed towards the population of the USSR. Catherine Andreyev provides an account of the evolution of the Russian Liberation Movement and examines the motivation of the titular leader of the Movement, Lieutenant-General Andrey Andreyevich Vlasov. The main focus of the book is the ideology of the Liberation Movement, the importance of which lies in the fact that it represented the first grass-roots opposition movement within the Soviet Union since the end of the Civil War in 1922. The programme of the Movement reflects issues which would have been raised by citizens in the 1930s had they been free to do so. Catherine Andreyev examines influences on the programme, and the ideas expressed are placed within the context of the pre-war Soviet and Russian emigre society." - from the rear cover.
