Life Models in Service Society
Friederike Bahl

Life Models in Service Society

Drawing on numerous interviews, observations, and discussions, Friederike Bahl demonstrates that low-level service employment has generated modes of working and living that point to a new form of »proletarity« without a proletariat. Her attention focuses on the people who do low-level service work and how they perceive their own status. Bahl’s analysis demonstrates that where and how people situate themselves in what they conceive of as »the whole« contributes to shaping society.

The Economics of the Cold War

In this volume, twenty-five authors from various fields and continents offer a much-needed assessment of the economic dimensions of the Cold War. Case studies and macroanalyses converge to reflect the balance sheets of the two main adversaries. They explore why the »economic war« between the rival blocs was waged from the outset with blunt weapons and unwilling »comrades-in-arms«, why merchants were more persevering than the Cold War warriors, and why »Third World« countries paid the highest price of all.

Limits to Killing in Today's Wars

Limits to Killing in Today's Wars

War cannot be waged without killing. Yet even in antiquity, rules and customs of wartime conduct defined the limits to violence on the battlefield and, more recently, have been codified in international accords. But as legal scholar Gerd Hankel asserts, today’s wars differ fundamentally from those fought when the Hague and Geneva Conventions were negotiated. International accords and humanitarian law fail to deal adequately with the grey zones that have become characteristic of today’s war zones.

For some, it symbolized a far-reaching disintegration of values, one which still awaits redress. For others, it was the initial step towards establishing a long overdue civil society in Germany.

Mainstream historiography still conceptualizes democracy in the 1920s from the perspective of its collapse.

Power and Domination in the World of Service
Philipp Staab

Power and Domination in the World of Service

Philipp Staab evaluates extensive first-hand observation and interviews with employees in low-level service jobs and demonstrates that the issue of proletarization has not disappeared in modern societies with the decline of industrial labor. A new kind of postindustrial »proletarity« has emerged, which shapes both how people work and how they live.

Normality and Fragility
Tim B. Müller/Adam Tooze (eds.)

Normality and Fragility: Democracy after World War I

»Adam Tooze and Tim B. Müller are key contributors to the stimulating and ambitious re-mapping of the European-transatlantic period between the two world wars. Mainstream historiography still conceptualizes democracy in the 1920s from the perspective of its collapse. The authors in this volume, in contrast, convincingly show why the vision of a sweeping democratic reordering after World War I should be taken seriously, even if those attempts ultimately failed.« — Anselm Doering-Manteuffel, University of Tübingen

The Economics of the Cold War
Bernd Greiner/Christian Th. Müller/Claudia Weber (eds.)

The Economics of the Cold War

In this volume, twenty-five authors from various fields and continents offer a much-needed assessment of the economic dimensions of the Cold War. Case studies and macroanalyses converge to reflect the balance sheets of the two main adversaries. They explore why the »economic war« between the rival blocs was waged from the outset with blunt weapons and unwilling »comrades-in-arms«, why merchants were more persevering than the Cold War warriors, and why »Third World« countries paid the highest price of all.

Michael Wildt

Volk, Volksgemeinschaft, Populism

This book addresses urgent questions for democracies everywhere, as populist movements gain support: Who defines who belongs to »the people«? Why are demands for ethnically homogeneous nation-states on the rise? Historian Wildt argues that revived definitions of »the people« based on a purported shared culture must be countered with concepts of equality and citizens’ rights recognized globally.
