Commemorating The First World War

Cambridge University Press continues to commemorate the First World War with a number of new and forthcoming books.

These new titles include Heather Streets-Salter's World War One in Southeast Asia and Stefan Rinke's Latin America and the First World War, both of which “globalize” the First World War; The British Army and the First World War, written by Ian Beckett, Timothy Bowman, and  Mark Connelly; a second edition of William Mulligan's The Origins of the First World War; and a third edition of Rex Wade’s The Russian Revolution, 1917. Forthcoming we have a beautiful book from Jay Winter, War Beyond Words, a panoramic history of transformations in our global imaginings of war from 1914 to the present. It charts a century's meditations on war, from painting and sculpture to photography, film and poetry, and ultimately to silence, as a language of memory in its own right.

Our latest titles focus on the lives of those who fought, lived through, and were affected by “The Great War,” and take a look at its impact on politics, international relations, and the arts.
