The War of the World History's Age of Hatred

The War of the World History's Age of Hatred review ✓ 9 Jing to the bloody beaches of Normandy from the economics of ethnic cleansing to the politics of imperial decline and fall The result as brilliantly written as it is vital is a great historian's masterwork. Ferguson attempts to address the uestion of what made the 20th C so bloody with a surprising hypothesis He says that racism and ethnic hostilities were the culprit triggered by economic volatility and declining empires He then beginning with WWI and ending in current times but focusing mostly on WWII describes the ethnic and racist aspects of major wars minor wars wars within wars internal wars of totalitarian regimes etc He calls his premise a hypothesis and he makes a good start at demonstrating it but I feel he has a way to go to prove it I think his triggers may be necessary but not sufficient to set off ethnic violence He neglects to explore the very real role played by ideology created myths and propaganda in creating the ground for the violence He settles for human nature as being sufficient Again necessary but not sufficientHe points out that an aspect of the lethality is the 20th C ability of people to dehumanize their enemies seeing them as sub human vermin insects allowing killing with impunity barbarity and atrocities without conscience This is something along with ideology and the cultural groundwork prior to his triggers which if explored thoroughly would have bolstered his thesisNot all his cited examples are convincing It s difficult to see ethnic tensions as a primary aspect of Mao s murderous various revolutions or even much of a contributor to the millions killed One needs to look at each example given and analyze it in context to see if the violence was primarily ethnically or racially motivated Giving evidence that ethnicity was one aspect or suspected aspect doesn t mean that it contributed that much In some cases of course it s pretty clear In others one needs to analyze further At the same time he almost contradicts himself when showing how ethnic violence occurs between people who are not really of different ethnicities Again it calls for looking at deeper reasons as I ve suggestedFerguson is readable interesting usually a clear thinker He documents his work well with charts and graphs copious endnotes and an eually abundant bibliography I gained insights into things I d not found elsewhere and appreciated some of the subtleties he presented I think his thesis is well worth considering and exploring further But in my mind he hasn t yet displaced ideology and advancing technology as the primary causes of the bloodiness of the 20th C Still a worthwhile book to read and a hypothesis worth considering even if it needs further work and analysis

review The War of the World History's Age of Hatred

The War of the World History's Age of Hatred review ✓ 9 History Why was the twentieth century history's bloodiest by far Why did unprecedented material progress go hand in hand with total war and genocide His uest for new answers takes him from the walls of Nan. There is something about this guy s work that is a little annoying Like his The Ascent of Money it was almost there but not uite I needed something on World War Two recently and saw this and bought it but it has a much broader interest than just that conflictThe idea behind this is fascinating pretty much that we like to think most of the conflicts of the last century were ideological when in fact they were mostly ethnic There is some fascinating stuff on the formation of Turkey and the expulsion of the Greeks to facilitate that and some disturbing bit and pieces about Stalin and Soviet or rather Russian exceptionalism but as always the most disturbing information here is on the Nazi The information here about the invasion of Poland and the conseuences of it due to both the Soviet Union and Germany is horrific I used some of this when teaching WW2 recently particularly his explaining that the Germans literally killed girl guides as part of their policy of removing all possibility of there being leaders who might form a resistance But although there is a remarkable amount of fascinating material in this book it doesn t really work I m not sure how much ethic divisions really define the last century or if they are enough to explain everything Power is much interesting than just skin colour or how many fingers you use to cross yourself with Economic power would seem a much interesting way to explain the worldHowever I ve been selective in my reading of this book and will eventually need to go over the bits I skipped Which was truth be told most of the book There is a television series to this one too but I still haven t watched the money one so getting around to watching this one might be a bit of a problem as well

The War of the World History's Age of Hatred review ✓ 9 Astonishing in its scope and erudition this is the magnum opus that Niall Ferguson's numerous acclaimed works have been leading up to In it he grapples with perhaps the most challenging uestions of modern. Typical Book written by and made for Establishment2 out of 5 Stars Ferguson didn t add any thing new to the historical view of World War but only reinforced the same old song and danceAs a Hedge Fund Investment Banker during the height of the Financial Crisis I found his research a bit disingenuous that he didn t write a thing about how banks FUND most of the wars around the Globe especially when the title of this book is The War of the WorldHe admits in the credits that he had at least 11 students compile most of the detailed research but comes up with his own conclusions He points at the same conflict zones beneficial for Western Propaganda Pearl Harbour and the Nazis invasion of Europe If this research was truly a The War of the WORLD he should have included the rest of the WORLD1US Military Coups and Occupation of South America and the Caribbean and the continued Economic Occupation of those countries ie Haiti2 The French Occupation of PolynesiaIndochinaVietnam and its continued Economic Occupation of its People3 US Occupation of Hawaii and its continued Economic Occupation of its People4 US Occupation of Philippines1898 to 1946 and its continued Economic Occupation of its People also includes Guam Laos Micronesia Palau5 The British Occupation of ChinaMiddle East and its continued Economic Occupation of its People Trade with a known Violator of Human Rights is Illegal Under 4th Geneva Conventions and Most Domestics Laws in 1st World CountriesOne last note Ferguson does not attack the Bad Guys from the perspective of Extreme Nationalism ie the Nazis He should include Nationalism as a factor to war He arrives at it from the point of Race Ferguson comes from a nationalistic Nation of Great Britain He fails or refuses to acknowledge that States Nationhood create physical and ethnic boundaries which in turn stress Them and Us That is the greatest flaw of Nationalism it separates and segregates entire regions from each other Nationalists think it s inclusive but Nationalism can also be used to ExcludeEinstein stated it bestI am by heritage a Jew by citizenship a Swiss and by makeup a human being and only a human being without any special attachment to any state or national entity whatsoever Albert Einstein in a letter to Alfred Kneser 7 June 1918 Doc 560 in The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein Vol 8
