To date, the history of military and war has focused predominantly on men as historical agents, disregarding gender and its complex interrelationships with war and the military. The Oxford Handbook of Gender, War, and the Western World since 1600 investigates how conceptions of gender have contributed to the shaping of war and the military and were transformed by them. Covering the major periods in warfare since the seventeenth century, the Handbook focuses on Europe and the long-term processes of colonization and empire-building in the Americas, Asia, Africa and Australia. Thirty-two essays written by leading international scholars exploreÂthe cultural representations of war and the military, war mobilization, and war experiences at home and on the battle front. Essays address the gendered aftermath and memories of war, as well as gendered war violence. Essays also examineÂmovements to regulate and prevent warfare, the consequences of participation in the military for citizenship, and challenges to ideals of Western military masculinity posed by female, gay, and lesbian soldiers and colonial soldiers of color. The Oxford Handbook of Gender, War, and the Western World since 1600 offers an authoritative account of the intricate relationships between gender, warfare, and military culture across time and space.

This book gathers together contributions from internationally renowned authors in the field of cardiovascular systems and provides crucial insight into the importance of sex- and gender-concepts during the analysis of patient data. This innovative title is the first to offer the elements necessary to consider sex-related properties in both clinical and basic studies regarding the heart and circulation on multiscale levels (i.e. molecular, cellular, electrophysiologically, neuroendocrine, immunoregulatory, organ, allometric, and modeling). Observed differences at (ultra)cellular and organ level are quantified, with focus on clinical relevance and implications for diagnosis and patient management. Since the cardiovascular system is of vital importance for all tissues, Sex-Specific Analysis of Cardiovascular Function is an essential source of information for clinicians, biologists, and biomedical investigators. The wide spectrum of differences described in this book will also act as an eye-opener and serve as a handbook for students, teachers, scientists and practitioners.

Since the death of Stalin, the supposedly monolithic character of the Socialist states of East Central Europe has been subjected to serious and major challenges: from Yugoslavia in the late 1940s, from East Germany, Poland, and Hungary in the '50s, from Albania, Romania, and Czechoslovakia in the '60s, from Poland in the '70s and early '80s. Written by one of the world's foremost authorities on East Central Europe, this informative study examines these challenges and their consequences in all their complexity, providing an extensive political history of the area from World War II to the present. A sequel to Rothschild's highly acclaimed East Central Europe Between the Two World Wars, this up-to-date volume offers a country-by-country account of the widespread political malaise in East Central Europe. Rothschild provides an insightful discussion of the Solidarity movement in Poland, a lucid analysis of Titoism in Yugoslavia, and a thorough review of Soviet policy toward the area under all leaders since World War II. In addition, he examines the acute or impending crises in countries such as Poland and Romania, and he assesses the problems that Gorbachev faces in managing the increasingly restive Soviet bloc nations. Unsurpassed in scope, in depth of analysis, and in fairness and objectivity, Return to Diversity is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in this vital bloc of nations.

This is the fourth edition of Geir Lundestad's successful textbook on the history of international politics after 1945, which has established itself as one of the leading works on the international history of the post-war era. The book concentrates on two main lines of development: on the one hand, the rivalry between the superpowers and the effects of their power and influence even in the most remote corners of the globe; and on the other hand, the weakened position of the superpowers and the developments leading up to the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the Eastern bloc. This new edition covers international developments up to mid-1998, explaining the end of the Cold War, and describing the many post-Cold War crises as well as recent political and economic developments in Russia, the EU, and East Asia. East, West, North, South offers the ideal introduction to the subject for all students of modern history and international relations, as well as the general reader with an interest in post-war history and international affairs.
