The Misbegotten War, Volume IV

In the second half of 2004, George W. Bush won re-election over John Kerry, the Beslan terror siege in Russia proved beyond all doubt that the very idea of the modern nation state was under attack while Mr. Putin waged war on the oligarchs, and the US authorities made their official reports on the war crimes committed at the Iraqi prison at Abu Ghraib. Perhaps the most important story was Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld getting grilled by US troops in Iraq over why their equipment was inadequate. The exchange demonstrated the inadequacy of the administration's military planning, despite being able to choose the time and place of the war.

The Misbegotten War, Volume I

This volume contains essays drawn from The Kensington Review, covering the period from 2002 through the first half of 2003. During this period, the American government eroded civil liberties in the aftermath of the Al Qaeda murders of September 11, 2001 and launched a misguided war against Iraq over non-existent weapons of mass destruction. Shortly thereafter, the occupation of Iraq started to go horribly wrong, and the Bush administration found itself unable to find its way out of the quagmire. This undermined American foreign policy around the world. At home, Wall Street's greed went largely unchecked, the Democratic Party acted as an enabler rather than as an opposition, and efforts to protect American civilians were more cosmetic than effective.

The Misbegotten War, Volume III

By the beginning of 2004, it was clear that the hoped-for cakewalk in Iraq was anything but that. The Bush administration had run up record deficits, and at the same time, it was becoming clear that the Democrats vying for the White House were having trouble making their criticisms on either international or domestic policy stick. Such is the power of a wartime incumbency. Also in this period, seven new countries joined the NATO alliance, occupation authorities closed down Moqtada al-Sadr's newspaper, and donations to rebuild Afghanistan were clearly inadequate.

Asia and the Great War

There is no single volume that shines a light on Asia's collective involvement in the First World War, and the impact that war had on its societies. Moreover, no volume in any language explores the experiences Asian countries shared as they became embroiled, with divergent results, in the war and its repercussions. Asia and the Great War moves beyond the national or even international level by presenting a 'shared' history from non-national and transnational perspectives. Asian involvements make the Great War not only a true 'world' war but also a 'great' war. The war generated forces that would transform Asia both internally and externally. Asian involvement in the First World War is a unique chapter in both Asian and world history, with Asian participation transforming the meaning and implications of the broader conflict.

The military events of the Second World War have been the subject of historical debate from 1945 to the present. It mattered greatly who won, and fighting was the essential determinant of victory or defeat. In Volume 1 of The Cambridge History of the Second World War a team of twenty-five leading historians offer a comprehensive and authoritative new account of the war's military and strategic history. Part I examines the military cultures and strategic objectives of the eight major powers involved. Part II surveys the course of the war in its key theatres across the world, and assesses why one side or the other prevailed there. Part III considers, in a comparative way, key aspects of military activity, including planning, intelligence, and organisation of troops and material, as well as guerrilla fighting and treatment of prisoners of war.

The Misbegotten War, Volume II

This volume contains essays drawn from The Kensington Review, covering the second half of 2003. During this period, the occupation of Iraq demonstrated not only the lack of planning on the part of the Bush administration but also its general incompetence in administration in general. Elsewhere, Zimbabwe's descent into misery continued, and in some ways, it accelerated; Britain's Tony Blair began to take the heat for his support of the Bush White House in its Iraq policies; and France and Germany violated with impunity the Stability and Growth Pact upon which the euro was launched – setting a precedent which would directly lead to the excessive borrowing in periphery states of the eurozone that undermined the currency later in the decade. At the same time, the people of California indulged in a grand case of buyers' remorse, recalling Gray Davis as governor and replacing him with action-film actor Arnold Schwarzenegger after a campaign that resembled a circus more than anything else.

The Cambridge History of the Second World War

The conflict that ended in 1945 is often described as a 'total war', unprecedented in both scale and character. Volume 3 of The Cambridge History of the Second World War adopts a transnational approach to offer a comprehensive and global analysis of the war as an economic, social and cultural event. Across twenty-eight chapters and four key parts, the volume addresses complex themes such as the political economy of industrial war, the social practices of war, the moral economy of war and peace and the repercussions of catastrophic destruction. A team of nearly thirty leading historians together show how entire nations mobilized their economies and populations in the face of unimaginable violence, and how they dealt with the subsequent losses that followed. The volume concludes by considering the lasting impact of the conflict and the memory of war across different cultures of commemoration.

The Cambridge History of the First World War

Volume 3 of The Cambridge History of the First World War explores the social and cultural history of the war and considers the role of civil society throughout the conflict; that is to say those institutions and practices outside the state through which the war effort was waged. Drawing on twenty-five years of historical scholarship, it sheds new light on culturally significant issues such as how families and medical authorities adapted to the challenges of war and the shift that occurred in gender roles and behaviour that would subsequently reshape society. Adopting a transnational approach, this volume surveys the war's treatment of populations at risk, including refugees, minorities and internees, to show the full extent of the disaster of war and, with it, the stubborn survival of irrational kindness and the generosity of spirit that persisted amidst the bitterness at the heart of warfare, with all its contradictions and enduring legacies. This volume concludes with a reckoning of the costs and consequences of The Great War.

The Cambridge History of the Second World War

War is often described as an extension of politics by violent means. With contributions from twenty-eight eminent historians, Volume 2 of The Cambridge History of the Second World War examines the relationship between ideology and politics in the war's origins, dynamics and consequences. Part I examines the ideologies of the combatants and shows how the war can be understood as a struggle of words, ideas and values with the rival powers expressing divergent claims to justice and controlling news from the front in order to sustain moral and influence international opinion. Part II looks at politics from the perspective of pre-war and wartime diplomacy as well as examining the way in which neutrals were treated and behaved. The volume concludes by assessing the impact of states, politics and ideology on the fate of individuals as occupied and liberated peoples, collaborators and resistors, and as British and French colonial subjects.

Richard J. Thompson, Jr. Crystal Clear. The Struggle for Reliable Communications Technology in World War II

Quartz crystal-a technology that changed the tide of World War II Some of the defining leaps in technology in the twentieth century occurred during the Second World War, from radar to nuclear energy. Often left out of historical discussions are quartz crystals, which proved to be just as pivotal to the Allied victory-and to post-war development-as other technologies. Quartz crystals provided the U.S. military, for the first time, with reliable communication on the front lines, and then went on to become the core of some of the most basic devices of the post-war era, from watches, clocks, and color televisions, to cell phones and computers. In Crystal Clear, Richard Thompson relates the story of the quartz crystal in World War II, from its early days as a curiosity for amateur radio enthusiasts, to its use by the United States Armed Forces. It follows the intrepid group of scientists and engineers from the Office of the Chief Signal Officer of the U.S. Army as they raced to create an effective quartz crystal unit. They had to find a reliable supply of radio-quality quartz; devise methods to reach, mine, and transport the quartz; find a way to manufacture quartz crystal oscillators rapidly; and then solve the puzzling «aging problem» that plagued the early units. Ultimately, the development of quartz oscillators became the second largest scientific undertaking in World War II after the Manhattan Project. Bringing to light a little-known aspect of World War II, Crystal Clear offers a glimpse inside one of the most significant efforts in the annals of engineering.

Poets of World War II

This anthology brings together 120 poems about World War II by sixty-two American poets, chosen, as editor Harvey Shapiro writes in his introduction, “with a purpose: to demonstrate that the American poets of this war produced a body of work that has not yet been recognized for its clean and powerful eloquence.” The poets are generally unsentimental, ironic, and often astonished by what they have experienced, and their insights still have the power to shake up our perceptions of that war and of war in general. Most of the poets included in the volume served in the armed forces; some—Louis Simpson, Anthony Hecht, Kenneth Koch—saw combat in the infantry, while others—James Dickey, Howard Nemerov, Richard Hugo, John Ciardi—fought in the air. Also included: poets who experienced the war as civilians, including Robinson Jeffers, Marianne Moore, and Conrad Aiken; poems by conscientious objectors and draft resisters, including William Stafford and Robert Lowell; and an elegy by James Tate for his father, who was killed in action when Tate was an infant.
