The Rage of Nations
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1999 - 509 sidor
Marked by two world wars, the Holocaust, and a host of violent conflicts, genocides, and violent revolutions, the twentieth century has been the most explosive and destructive in human history. As we enter the twenty-first century, it is vital that we understand what went wrong in the preceding hundred years. This book, the first of a two-volume work by historian Edward Kantowicz, provides an engaging narrative that chronicles the events, people, and ideas driving the world's social and political course in the twentieth century. The Rage of Nations covers the landmark events from 1900 through the Second World War: the Russo-Japanese War, the global repercussions of World War I, the Russian Revolution, the Great Depression, Mussolini's fascism, Hitler's nazism, Stalin's socialism, the Spanish Civil War, the China of Mao and Chiang Kai-shek, World War II, the development of the atomic bomb, and more. In addition, Kantowicz probes behind the events themselves, examining their source in the five terrible "isms" of the twentieth century-anarchism, socialism, imperialism, nationalism, and ethnocentrism. Providing compelling, often disconcerting reading, The Rage of Nations will help us make sense of what is happening in the world today by considering important lessons from our recent past.
