Birth of the Anthropocene, The

Birth of the Anthropocene, The

"The Birth of the Anthropocene" shows how an epochal world transformation puts the deep history of the planet at the heart of contemporary environmental politics. By opening a window onto geological time, the idea of the Anthropocene changes our understanding of present-day environmental destruction and injustice. Linking new developments in earth science to the insights of world historians, Jeremy Davies shows that as the Anthropocene epoch begins, politics and geology have become inextricably entwined. 234 pp.

Holocaust: An American Understanding

Holocaust: An American Understanding

Reveals how, since the end of the war a broad array of Americans have tried to make sense of an inexplicable disaster, and how they came to use the Holocaust as a lens to interpret their own history. Drawing upon extensive research on politics, popular culture, student protests, religious debates and Zionist ideologies, the author weaves a powerful narrative that ranges from the civil rights movement and Vietnam, to the Rwandan genocide and the bombing of Kosovo. 204 pp.
