Europe 1900-1945 by Julian Jackson
Book DescriptionBy 1945, the European continent, which in 1900 appeared increasingly prosperous, reasonably ordered, and increasingly civilised, had torn itself apart. On the way, its societies had suffered inflations and depressions, vicious dictatorships, and the most destructive wars in modern history. This book provides a thought-provoking and wide-ranging history of the whole of Europe in this period. Six lively and stimulating chapters have been written especially for this volume. They focus in turn on political, economic, social, and cultural aspects of the period, as well as international relations within Europe and with the wider world. Particular care is taken to integrate developments in southern and eastern Europe (including the USSR) into the more familiar story of what happened in western and central Europe.

5/1/1968, Hardback (August 2011)
The events of 1968 are often seen purely as a student revolution, but impacted on every aspect of French society - theatre, film, sexuality, race, the countryside, the factories. This volume explores the full diversity of this extraordinary upheaval, and shows how 1968 continues to reverberate in France today.
Living in Arcadia, Hardback (January 2010)
In Paris in 1954, Andre Baudry founded Arcadie, an organization for 'homophiles'. Yet despite its huge importance, Arcadie has largely disappeared from the historical record. This title uncovers Arcadie's pioneering efforts to educate the European public about homosexuality in an era of renewed repression.
Grande Illusion, Paperback (September 2009)
Jean Renoir's 1937 film La Grande Illusion is set during the First World War, but its themes of Franco-German conflict, divided loyalties in a time of war and the rise of anti-Semitism made it compelling and controversial viewing. Julian Jackson traces the film's historical context and its reception history.
Fall of France, Paperback (April 2004)» View all books by Julian Jackson
This new book by Julian Jackson, a leading historian of twentieth-century France, charts the breathtakingly rapid events that led to the defeat and surrender of one of the key Allied powers, setting in motion the traumatic years of the Occupation, the Vichy regime, and the rapid escalation of World War Two.
