The Poles in Britain, 1940-2000 - From Betrayal to Assimilation (Paperback, annotated edition): Peter D. Stachura The Poles in Britain, 1940-2000 - From Betrayal to Assimilation (Paperback, annotated edition)
Peter D. Stachura
R993 Discovery Miles 9 930 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book provides an important, original analysis of the Polish community in the United Kingdom, adding up to a provocative interpretation of the Pole's position in British society. The chapters add to our understanding of the significant Polish military effort alongside the Allies in defeating Nazi Germany, while the appalling price the Poles paid at the end of the war at the Yalta Conference is accentuated. This crass and wholly unjustified betrayal of the cause of a Free Poland by the Allies resulted directly in the formation of a large Polish community in Britain.

Peter D. Stachura
R2,954 Discovery Miles 29 540 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Poland, 1918-1945 - An Interpretive and Documentary History of the Second Republic (Paperback): Peter D. Stachura Poland, 1918-1945 - An Interpretive and Documentary History of the Second Republic (Paperback)
Peter D. Stachura
R880 Discovery Miles 8 800 Special order

In the turbulent history of twentieth-century Europe, the reborn Polish State faced the most formidable and diverse array of problems imaginable. From 1918 until the end of the Second World War, Poland struggled to retain and consolidate Independence, finally falling prey to the alien ideology and political system of Communism. The period of the Second Polish Republic, from its establishment in 1918 until its end in 1945, has often been viewed in the context of its negative aspects and failures. This lucid new study demonstrates that a far more positive assessment is needed, through an informed, balanced and objective approach.
Based on extensive range of Polish, British, German, Jewish and Ukranian primary and secondary sources, this work provides an objective appraisal of the inter-war period. Peter Stachura demonstrates how the Republic overcame giant obstacles at home and abroad to achieve consolidation as an independent state in the early 1920s, made relative economic progress, created a coherent social order, produced an outstanding cultural scene, advanced educational opportunity, and adopted constructive and even-handed policies towards its ethnic minorities. Without denying the defeats suffered by the Republic, Peter Stachura demonstrates that the fate of Poland after 1945, with the imposition of an unwanted, Soviet-dominated Communist system, was thoroughly undeserved.

Gregor Strasser and the Rise of Nazism (Hardcover): Peter D. Stachura Gregor Strasser and the Rise of Nazism (Hardcover)
Peter D. Stachura
R2,361 Discovery Miles 23 610 Special order

The most influential and substantial leader, after Hitler, in the pre-1933 National Socialist Party was Gregor Strasser. This book (originally published in 1983 but as yet not superseded) is a comprehensive and scholarly assessment of Strasser's significant and ultimately tragic career, based largely on previously unpublished German archival material. Strasser's importance as a Nazi propagandist, organiser, ideologue and spokesman is examined and the analysis and interpretation which follow are fundamentally revisionist in that many of the accepted ideas about Strasser's career are challenged and shown to be untenable. The book provides important insights into an interesting personality which in turn considerably enhances our understanding of the character of early National Socialism and the politics of the Weimar Republic.
