Описание: Why did the industrial revolution take place in eighteenth-century Britain and not elsewhere in Europe or Asia? In this convincing new account Robert Allen argues that the British industrial revolution was a successful response to the global economy of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. He shows that in Britain wages were high and capital and energy cheap in comparison to other countries in Europe and Asia. As a result, the breakthrough technologies of the industrial revolution - the steam engine, the cotton mill, and the substitution of coal for wood in metal production - were uniquely profitable to invent and use in Britain. The high wage economy of pre-industrial Britain also fostered industrial development since more people could afford schooling and apprenticeships. It was only when British engineers made these new technologies more cost-effective during the nineteenth century that the industrial revolution would spread around the world.

Автор: Edited by Julia Strauss Название: The History of the People`s Republic of China, 1949-1976 ISBN: 0521696968 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780521696968 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 21220 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: The volume looks back to the revolutionary People’s Republic of China between 1949 and 1976 from an explicitly historical perspective, using historical materials such as memoirs and archives. While there was a great deal published on the revolutionary period by political scientists when these events were contemporaneous or near contemporaneous, there is little in the field that both takes advantage of the temporal distance and perspective that we now have in combination with the range of primary materials that have come available in the last ten to fifteen years. The volume contains essays on a variety of particular subjects on the revolutionary People’s Republic of China, and, unlike most of the other work on the period that has either come out recently or is in press, gives some coverage to the entirety of the period.
Автор: S. C. M. Paine Название: The Sino-Japanese War of 1894–1895 ISBN: 0521817145 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780521817141 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 56150 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: The Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895 is a seminal event in world history, yet it has been virtually ignored in Western literature. In the East, the focus of
Chinese foreign policy has been to undo its results whereas the focus of Japanese foreign policy has been to confirm them. Japan supplanted China as the dominant regional power,
disrupting the traditional power balance and fracturing the previous international harmony within the Confucian world, leaving enduring territorial and political fault lines that have
embroiled China, Japan, Korea, Russia, and Taiwan ever since.
The book examines the war through the eyes of the journalists who filed reports from China, Japan, Russia,
Europe, and the United States showing how the war changed outside perceptions of the relative power of China and Japan and the consequences of these changed perceptions,
namely, the scramble for concessions in China and Japan's emergence as a great power.

Автор: Paine Название: The Wars for Asia, 1911–1949 ISBN: 1107020697 ISBN-13(EAN): 9781107020696 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 15070 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: The Wars for Asia, 1911–1949 shows that the Western treatment of World War II, the Second Sino-Japanese War and the Chinese Civil War as separate events misrepresents their overlapping connections and causes. The Chinese Civil War precipitated a long regional war between China and Japan that went global in 1941 when the Chinese found themselves fighting a civil war within a regional war within an overarching global war. The global war that consumed Western attentions resulted from Japan's peripheral strategy to cut foreign aid to China by attacking Pearl Harbour and Western interests throughout the Pacific in 1941. S. C. M. Paine emphasizes the fears and ambitions of Japan, China and Russia, and the pivotal decisions that set them on a collision course in the 1920s and 1930s. The resulting wars together yielded a viscerally anti-Japanese and unified Communist China, the still-angry rising power of the early twenty-first century.

Автор: Su Название: Collective Killings in Rural China during the Cultural Revolution ISBN: 0521173817 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780521173810 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 15060 T Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика Поставка под заказ. Описание: The violence of Mao’s China is well known, but its extreme form is not. In 1967 and 1968, during the Cultural Revolution, collective killings were widespread in rural China in the form of public execution. Victims included women, children, and the elderly. This book is the first to systematically document and analyze these atrocities, drawing data from local archives, government documents, and interviews with survivors in two southern provinces. This book extracts from the Chinese case lessons that challenge the prevailing models of genocide and mass killings and contributes to the historiography of the Cultural Revolution, in which scholarship has mainly focused on events in urban areas.
Автор: Chickering Название: War in an Age of Revolution, 1775–1815 ISBN: 0521899966 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780521899963 Издательство: Cambridge Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 41080 T Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: This volume investigates a critical moment in the history of warfare. It assembles historians of the early modern and modern eras to speak to one another across the great historiographical divide that has traditionally separated them. The central questions in the volume have to do with the historical place of revolutionary warfare on both sides of the Atlantic - the degree to which they extended practices common in the eighteenth century or introduced fundamentally new forms of warfare. Among the topics covered in the volume are the global dimensions of warfare, logistics, universal military service and the mobilization of noncombatants, occupation, and the impact of war on civilian life in both Europe and North America.
