The Great War, as World War I was known in its time, was described by its survivors and contemporary historians as "the war to end all wars," "the war to make the world safe for democracy." By its end, in November 1918, Europe's authoritarian old empires had fallen, and new and seemingly democratic successor states and governments were rising from the ensuing debris. In chronicling an era that was both visionary and tempestuous, Howard M. Sachar directs our attention to the fate specifically of Europe's Jewish minority as a classic litmus test of the Continent's transformation.... View more info

315 pages.Relationships between Britain and France have always been sensitive but at the end of Victoria's reign, when they were worse than ever. Three years after her death the situation was completely reversed. On April 8th, 1904, the Entente Cordiale was signed between the two countries. The text of the Entente was the work of two Foreign Secretaries - the Marquess of Lansdowne and Theophile Delcasse. It was no easy task, but it could hardly ever have been contemplated if Edward VII, on becoming King, had not won over public opinion in France through a combination of his own charm and immen...

Though more than sixty years have passed since the signing of the proclamation of the State of Israel, the impact of that epochal event continues to shape the political policies and public opinion of not only the Middle East but much of the world. The consequent conflict between Arabs and Israelis for sovereignty over the land of Palestine has been one of the most bloody, intractable and drawn-out of modern times. It continues today in cycles of aggressive violence followed by temporary and tenuous ceasefires that are marked and complicated by resolute opinions and fractious religious ideologi... View more info
