BOOK EXCERPT:

A close look at Woodrow Wilson’s political thought and international diplomacy In the widely acclaimed To End All Wars, Thomas Knock provides an intriguing, often provocative narrative of Woodrow Wilson’s epic quest for a new world order. This book follows Wilson’s thought and diplomacy from his policy toward revolutionary Mexico, through his dramatic call for “Peace without Victory” in World War I, to the Senate’s rejection of the League of Nations. Throughout, Knock reinterprets the origins of internationalism in American politics, sweeping away the view that isolationism was the cause of Wilson’s failure and revealing the role of competing visions of internationalism—conservative and progressive.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Brutal and cataclysmic, the First World War irrevocably changed the face of not just Europe, but the world and the very nature of war itself. On the centenary of its onset, The War to End All Wars gives a startling and intimate view of life during wartime, through never-before-seen color photographs chronicling each year of the conflict. Previously unpublished, these extraordinary photographs come from the newly discover collection on August Fuhrmann, Germany's first media tycoon. The early color photographs, hand colored on porcelain plates are compellingly beautiful and haunting. Accompanied by personal diaries these words and images convey an intimate portrayal of a previously hidden world. From the horrors of the trenches to the challenges on the home front, these images of suffering and despair, hope and strength, convey the impact of the Great War in a new and profound way. Designed as the companion volume to a three-part BBC documentary, The War to End All Wars cast the experience of the world's first modern, mechanized war in an entirely new light.

BOOK EXCERPT:

World War I stands as one of history’s most senseless spasms of carnage, defying rational explanation. In a riveting, suspenseful narrative with haunting echoes for our own time, Adam Hochschild brings it to life as never before. He focuses on the long-ignored moral drama of the war’s critics, alongside its generals and heroes. Thrown in jail for their opposition to the war were Britain’s leading investigative journalist, a future winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, and an editor who, behind bars, published a newspaper for his fellow inmates on toilet paper. These critics were sometimes intimately connected to their enemy hawks: one of Britain’s most prominent women pacifist campaigners had a brother who was commander in chief on the Western Front. Two well-known sisters split so bitterly over the war that they ended up publishing newspapers that attacked each other. Today, hundreds of military cemeteries spread across the fields of northern France and Belgium contain the bodies of millions of men who died in the “war to end all wars.” Can we ever avoid repeating history?
