Into the Breach
Hugh Sebag-Montefiore

Telegraph Best Book of the Year
“[Sebag-Montefiore] utilizes the
intimate archives of letters, diaries,
and dispatches to produce a far
more detailed and individualized
portrait of the subject than earlier
big single-volume treatments…The
narrative moves easily from the
larger logistical tangles back at
headquarters to the experiences of
the men fighting in the front lines,
and Sebag-Montefiore is every bit
as authoritative writing about the
birth of air and tank warfare as he
is picking apart the psychologies of
the men involved…[An] enormously
satisfying book.”

Telegraph “Best History Books for Christmas” Selection
“Pieter M. Judson’s book informs and stimulates. If his account of
Habsburg achievements, especially in the 18th century, is rather
starry-eyed, it is a welcome corrective to the black legend usually
presented. Lucid, elegant, full of surprising and illuminating details,
it can be warmly recommended to anyone with an interest in
modern European history.”

“This is a wonderfully broad sweep of Roman history. It tells the

through the dozens of warlords and usurpers who fought for

the fourth—after the biggest religious and cultural revolution
the world has ever seen.”

Johannes Fried
Translated by Peter Lewis
“Charlemagne is relentless in
the accumulation of detail and
austerely comprehensive in its
endnotes…This Charles the Great
is unmistakably Karl der Grosse…
Matching the mood of our times,
blood-flecked Realpolitik and
smoldering religious intolerance
are very much to the fore…Few
[Charlemagne biographies] capture
so well the unlovely realities of
Carolingian politics and the sheer
technical difficulty of ruling a
medieval empire in the absence
of a state apparatus.”
—Michael Kulikowski,
Wall Street Journal
“In this splendid biography, Fried
shows that Charlemagne remains
a figure to be reckoned with even
12 centuries after his death.”

during the blockade and the role that diaries played in Soviet history.”

The Nazi-Fascist New Order for European Culture
Benjamin G. Martin

Éamon de Valera

A Will to Power
Ronan Fanning

“[A] sharp new biography
of de Valera.”
—Fintan O’Toole,
New York Review of Books
“De Valera is the subject of many
biographies, including several
authorized productions that he
carefully supervised. But Éamon de
Valera: A Will to Power, by Ronan
Fanning, stands out…An astute,
nuanced and highly readable life
that manages to be both sharply
critical and expansive in its
judgments. In this era of doorstop
biographies, Fanning deserves
extra praise for accomplishing all
this in a trim 300 pages.”
—Michael O’Donnell,

“As Benjamin G. Martin shows in his bold and impressive book,
Germany, in close collaboration with Mussolini’s Italy, tried to recast
European culture in accordance with their ideological aims…Martin’s
book is a work of great originality because it does not focus on the
art, nor on individual artists, film-makers and writers, but instead
draws our attention to the policies enacted by the Nazi-fascist
regimes to transform the cultural market.”

Belonging to the Nation

Inclusion and Exclusion in the Polish-German Borderlands, 1939–1951
John J. Kulczycki

“Kulczycki seeks to show how the stories of those who left Poland
for West Germany in the 1950s do not easily fit the narrow categories
of expulsion or economic migration…Kulczycki has written an engaging and deeply informative account of nationalization policies in the
German-Polish borderlands…Judicious and fairly written, the book
reminds readers that the need to respect the cultural variety of the
region remains relevant to this day.”

is a good one, and the essays by a diverse set of authors

The Paradox of Press Freedom in America

Sam Lebovic

David A. Moss

“How could a nation proud of its commitment to free expression
also be a place where journalists must scour through leaked

Sam Lebovic’s spectacular and important book shows how
the idea of a ‘right to know’ dropped out of twentieth-century
understandings of the First Amendment. Essential for understanding what has become of an American free press.”

The Roots of Urban Renaissance
Gentrification and the Struggle over Harlem
Brian D. Goldstein
“We’ve waited far too long for a book like Goldstein’s. We see, through
his efforts, how debates over community control, modernist and
insurgent architecture, and public/private partnerships owe much of
their ongoing salience to the experience of redevelopment in Harlem.
Indeed, if the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s captures a distinctive
cultural flowering, the Harlem of the 1960s and 1970s, in Goldstein’s
able hands, similarly stands in for America.”

“[Graham’s] survey of the terrifying milieu in which Lysenko thrived
includes a discussion of the eugenics movement in the Soviet Union,
and the short book thus encompasses two major types of threat to
the integrity of scientific inquiry: institutional interference from without and political infection from within. The latter threat, in particular,
is ever present…Graham’s survey of Lysenkoism and eugenics in

unimpeachable model for human behavior…For non-Muslims,
drawing on the same sources, he has been viewed from the
earliest times as lustful and barbarous, as a raving impostor aping the ancient prophets…The contrast is so stark as to appear
irreconcilable. Instead of attempting to skirt this divergence, Ali
uses it to structure her inquiry.”

provides a valuable service in underlining the centrality of the
Baltic region to Europe’s past. The way things are going, it may
determine the continent’s future, too.”

history, Jones shows that understanding political economy and
social context are integral to understanding energy transitions. His
elegantly written and cogently argued narrative of how Americans
spent down the planetary savings account of solar energy amassed

Long Eighteenth Century
Edited by Yota Batsaki • Sarah Burke Cahalan • Anatole Tchikine
The Botany of Empire in the Long Eighteenth Century brings
together an international body of scholars to examine the figure
of the botanical explorer; links between imperial ambition and
the impulse to survey, map, and collect specimens in “new”
territories; and relationships among botanical knowledge, selfrepresentation, and material culture.

The Future of the Past

New Perspectives on Ukrainian History
Edited by Serhii Plokhy
Ukraine is in the midst of the worst international crisis in East–West
relations since the Cold War, and history itself has become a battleground in Russia–Ukraine relations. The Future of the Past shows how
the study of Ukraine’s past enhances our understanding of Europe,
Eurasia, and the world—past, present, and future.

Peasants, Power, and Place

Revolution in the Villages of Kharkiv Province, 1914–1921
Mark R. Baker
Mark R. Baker focuses on Ukrainian-speaking peasants during
the 1914–1921 revolutionary period. Arguing that the peasants of
Kharkiv province thought of themselves primarily as members
of their particular village communities, and not as members of
any nation or class, he advances the historiography beyond the
ideologized categories of the Cold War.

The Battle for Ukrainian

A Comparative Perspective

Edited by Michael S. Flier • Andrea Graziosi • Lubomyr A. Hajda
The Ukrainian language has followed a tortuous path over 150 years
of tsarist, Soviet, and post-Soviet history. The Battle for Ukrainian
documents that path, and serves as an interdisciplinary study
essential for understanding language, history, and politics in both
Ukraine and the postimperial world.

The Taming of
Free Speech

America’s Civil Liberties
Laura Weinrib

“Utterly brilliant…Balanced and
restrained in her writing but original
and subversive in her argument,
Weinrib stops short of offering
morals from this history…Most
important, Weinrib reanimates a
strange time when the forces of
business and the forces of labor
were engaged in a pitched battle
about the way Americans should
construct their economy. When you
go looking for the origins of civil
libertarianism, it turns out, you find
a class struggle…Weinrib’s book is
an extraordinary reminder of why
history matters to the present.”
—Samuel Moyn, Wall Street Journal
“The Taming of Free Speech is…a
complex story about the evolution
of political and legal tactics
within competing organizations
and among the notable cast of
characters at their helm…[A]
provocative book.”

A Biography
Edited and translated by
Aleksandra Parker •
Michael Parker

inner, Kościelski Award,
Kościelski Foundation

“Franaszek’s outstanding
biography of Czeslaw Milosz
narrates one of the great lives
of the twentieth century…
Milosz was an artist who was also a political thinker,
who stood in the center of the ideological debates of his
time, who was an incredibly industrious writer and on
top of all this had a sublime gift for poetry…A triumph.”

The Story of War

“Vividly written, clearly
argued, and full of telling
details, this is the most
accessible work available
that explains how memories
of wars have occupied a
preeminent part of the
Russian national mythology.”
