Description : Filming the End of the Holocaust considers how the US Government commissioned the US Signal Corps and other filmmakers to document the horrors of the concentration camps during the April-May 1945 liberation. The evidence of the Nazis' genocidal actions amassed in these films, some of them made by Hollywood luminaries such as John Ford and Billy Wilder, would go on to have a major impact at the Nuremberg Trials; they helped to indict Nazi officials as the judges witnessed scenes of torture, human experimentation and extermination of Jews and non-Jews in the gas chambers and crematoria. These films, some produced by the Soviets, were integral to the war crime trials that followed the Holocaust and the Second World War, and this book provides a thorough, close analysis of the footage in these films and their historical significance. Using research carried out at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, the US National Archives and the film collection at the National Center for Jewish Film at Brandeis University, this book explores the rationale for filming the atrocities and their use in the subsequent trials of Nazi officials in greater detail than anything previously published. Including an extensive bibliography and filmography, Filming the End of the Holocaust is an important text for scholars and students of the Holocaust and its aftermath.

Description : IN THE DYING DAYS OF WORLD WAR II OLD ALLIES BECOME NEW ENEMIES Flashpoint Trieste is the story of one year in one city as the Cold War begins. The Western Allies had captured the Adriatic port city before the Russians could reach it, but having survived the war, everybody is now desperate to make it through the liberation. Life is fast and violent, as former warring parties find common cause against the Soviet Union and the borders of the new Europe are being hammered out. Against this deadly backdrop of intelligence operations, escape and revenge, the British and Americans are locked into the opening salvoes of the Cold War on the beautiful shores of the Adriatic, opposing the Russians and Yugoslavs. This is the story of the first turbulent post-war year of lethal cat-and-mouse in south-eastern Europe, told through the stories of twelve men and women from seven different countries thrown together on a strategically vital frontier between East and West.

Description : How do archives and other cultural institutions such as museums determine the boundaries of a particular community, and of their own institutional reach, in constructing effective strategies and methodologies for selecting and maintaining appropriate material evidence? This book offers guidance for archivists, record managers and museums professionals faced with such issues in their daily work. This edited collection explores the relationships between communities and the records they create at both practical and scholarly levels. It focuses on the ways in which records reflect community identity and collective memory, and the implications of capturing, appraising and documenting these core societal elements - with particular focus on the ways in which recent advances in technology can overcome traditional obstacles, as well as how technologies themselves offer possibilities of creating new virtual communities. It is divided into five themes: a community archives model communities and non-traditional record keeping records loss, destruction and recovery online communities: how technology brings communities and their records together building a community archive. Readership: This book will appeal to practitioners, researchers, and academics in the archives and records community as well as to historians and other scholars concerned with community building and social issues.

Description : More and more information is pumped into our media-saturated world every day, yet Americans seem to know less and less. In a society where who you are is defined by what you buy, and where we prefer to experience reality by watching it on TV, Eugene Halton argues something has clearly gone wrong. Luckily Halton, with scalpel-sharp wit in one hand and the balm of wisdom in the other, is here to operate on the declining body politic. His initial diagnosis is bleak: fast food and too much time spent sitting, whether in our cars or on our couches, are ruining our bodies, while our minds are weakened by the proliferation of electronic devices—TVs, computers, cell phones, iPods, video games—and their alienating effects. If we are losing the battle between autonomy and automation, he asks, how can our culture regain self-sufficiency? Halton finds the answer in the inspiring visions—deeply rooted in American culture—of an organic and more spontaneous life at the heart of the work of master craftsman Wharton Esherick, legendary blues singer Muddy Waters, urban critic Lewis Mumford, and artist Maya Lin, among others. A scathing and original jeremiad against modern materialism, The Great Brain Suck is also a series of epiphanies of a simpler but more profound life.

Description : This book is a translation of an oral history of the concentration camp experience recorded immediately after World War II as told by men and women who endured it and lived to tell about it. Their vivid, firsthand accounts heighten the reality of this experience in ways no third-person narrative can capture. Even when they are at a loss for words, their struggle to find language to express the unspeakable is, in itself, mute testimony to the ordeal etched forever on their memories. The testimonies are arranged to reflect the chronology of camp experience (from deportation to liberation), the living conditions of camp life (from malnutrition to forced labor), and the various methods of abuse and extermination (from castration to gassing and cremation). The chronology gives the accounts a narrative flow and even creates a certain suspense, especially as liberation nears and hopes rise.

Description : Расцвет капитализма катастроф.Продолжение бестселлера «NO LOGO: Люди против брендов»; новая сенсационная версия политической истории, разрушающая привычные представления и мифы о движущих силах и истинных причинах основных событий XX–XXI веков. Сенсационная правда о российских экономических и политических реформах 1987–2005 гг.«Доктрина шока» – новая книга Наоми Кляйн, жестокая правда о современном мировом порядке, история о том, как американская «свободная рыночная экономика» покоряет мир. Каждая катастрофа глобального масштаба завершается сегодня новым триумфом частного капитала. Эти события – примеры новой стратегии завоевания мира, которую Наоми Кляйн называет «доктриной шока»: использование замешательства народов и государств, возникающие в результате массовых общественных потрясений – войн, террористических атак, природных катаклизмов, – для проведения экономических реформ, известных как «шоковая терапия».«Доктрина шока» разрушает миф о том, что глобальная рыночная экономика торжествует по всему миру и принимается странами на основе свободного волеизъявления их народов. Автор показывает глубокую связь между «корпоративной» модернизацией современного общества и секретными экспериментами ЦРУ по управлению человеческим поведением.

Description : «Конец истории и последний человек» – это одно из самых известных произведений философа и футуролога Фрэнсиса Фукуямы, ставшее международным бестселлером и переведенное на несколько десятков языков.Капиталистическая либеральная демократия, убеждает Фукуяма в своей работе, есть конец истории в привычном нам ее направлении. Современные технологии все более способствуют гомогенизации различных культур, достижения индивидуальные превалируют над коллективными.Результатом становится своеобразная «капиталистическая утопия» – идеальное общество потребления, прекратившее историческое развитие, замкнувшееся внутри себя и, следовательно, поглощенное лишь внутренними проблемами.Какой же станет философия «последних людей»?И не станет ли материальная утопия духовной антиутопией?
