A German Catastrophe? : German historians and the Allied Bombings, 1945-2010

De bombardementen door de geallieerden hebben een stevig stempel gedrukt op de Duitse samenleving.

In zowel de DDR als de Bondsrepubliek v+¦+¦r en na 1990 werd deze luchtoorlog een onderwerp van publiek en politiek belang, alsmede een belangrijk onderdeel van de Duitse geschiedschrijving.

From War to the Rule of Law : Peace Building after Violent Conflicts

War, civil war and other political violence often revisit countries after brief periods of ‘peace’ or armistice. Some countries are ravaged by multifarious violent conflict during two to four decades.
