This book presents revised version of Professor Berend's Ellen McArthur Lectures, delivered in Cambridge in 1984. His theme is the problem of the consequences of only partially successful modernisation in East-Central Europe above all in the inter-war years. The results and failures of this process of modernisation generated several kinds of revolution - national, right-wing, and bolshevik - offset by the social, political and cultural effects of the First World War. Professor Berend's lectures investigate the complexity of these phenomena, the interrelationships among various economic processes, ideological and political trends, and the artistic endeavours of the period.

Ralph attended public high school in Ogden, Utah, where he was born. His higher education began at Weber State University and continued at the University of Utah where, following 3 years studying in the Netherlands, he completed B.A. and Masters Degrees. He earned a doctorate in Germanic and Hispanic studies at the State University of New York in Albany and also studied at universities in California, Switzerland and Spain. He has continued to travel extensively throughout the world, including several stays in foreign countries with the Experiment in International Living as leader of student home placement groups.He studied with Dr. Brewster Ghiselin, at the University of Utah who encouraged Ralph to write and stressed " render, render, render" in order to achieve a "vital fullness". Be sparing yet incisive with language and recounting. An author should convey the greatest meaning through wise choice of words while avoiding verbosity. In reading many postwar German works such as novels by the "Gruppe "47, who formed a group that was always a very loose group, he quickly perceived that the same philosophy prevailed as it did with Hemingway. Words were to be treated with the greatest respect and used sparingly and precisely. Ralph's working life has been devoted to education and supervision in colleges and high schools. For the last 12 years he has been engaged in the evaluation of schools throughout the world. He is fluent in Dutch, German and Spanish, passable in French, dabbles in Italian and Bahasa Indonesian, and is able to utter a few words in other languages. He serves on the Arts and Humanities Committee, as an advisor to the Dean of Humanities at Weber State University and writes articles and reviews as a "guest columnist" from time to time for local newspapers. Ralph and his wife, Judith Howell Vander Heide, last year published with Xlibris,Chris and Louisa,a novel which spans 125 years of Mormonism, polygamy and changes in the church from its founding by Joseph Smith in New York State to the 1960´s. The German Leaves grew out of Ralph´s work for his Ph.D. and focus on German Exilliteratur Exile Literature. Although much work has been done on the subject, both in Germany and the USA, the exile writings are still not widely known, yet the literary production of the exiles comprise some of the most excellent pieces in the history of German literature. Indeed, America has greatly profited by the so-call "brain drain" of men and women writers from Germany and Austria. The German Leaves is a work of devotion to the cause of world peace and the great importance of teaching/enjoying the humanities, in encouraging children to be all they can be, to strive and achieve, but always while considering the rights and respecting the way of life of all humans who share our planet. Persons who have read the manuscript have expressed only words of praise. They agree that they have learned a great deal about a subject they had known nothing or very little about.

In what may well rank as the finest political and intellectual history of the twentieth century, the late J. L. Talmon explores the origins of the schism within European society between the totalitarians of Right and Left as well as the split between an acceptance of the historical national community as the natural political and social framework and the vision of a socialist society achieved by a universal revolutionary breakthrough. This, the third and final volume of Talmon's history of the modern world, brings to bear the resources of his incisive scholarship to examine the workings of the ironies of totalitarianism as well as the resources of democracy.

Das in fünf Auflagen erschienene bio-bibliographische Handbuch Armin Mohlers ist längst ein Klassiker und unverzichtbares Hilfsmittel für jeden, der sich mit der Geschichte der rechten und konservativen geistesgeschichtlichen Strömungen während der Weimarer Republik beschäftigt. Wie wichtig dieses Buch für die Wissenschaft geworden ist, mag sich auch aus der Tatsache ergeben, dass der Begriff "Konservative Revolution" selbst, den Mohler für diese Strömungen geprägt hat, inzwischen zum sprachlichen Allgemeingut geworden ist. Der Hamburger Soziologe Stefan Breuer hat diese Begriffsbildung Mohlers "eine der erfolgreichsten Schöpfungen der neueren Ideengeschichtsschreibung" genannt. Für die sechste Auflage wurde das Standardwerk von einem der profundesten Kennern der Materie, Karlheinz Weissmann, überarbeitet, in dessen Hände Mohler die Fortführung seines Werkes vor seinem Tod legte. Ohne den bisherigen Duktus des Buches zu ändern, hat Weissmann eine Fülle von neuen wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen in diese Neuauflage einfliessen lassen. Über 350 Personen werden in Kurzbiographie mit ausführlicher Bibliographie vorgestellt, darunter Carl Schmitt, Ernst Jünger, Oswald Spengler, Thomas Mann, Edgar Julius Jung, Ludwig Klages, Hans Zehrer und der Tat-Kreis, Othmar Spann, Hans Freier, Stefan George, Hermann Löns, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Gottfried Benn, Martin Niemöller, Ernst Niekisch u. a.
