Silences: A Novel of the 1918 Finnish Civil War

Silences: A Novel of the 1918 Finnish Civil War

Labour Day, 1955. Near a creek in Port Arthur, Ontario, a man’s body hangs at the end of a rope. The story of the body, and its missing shoe, begins in Finland, decades earlier and an ocean away. In January, 1918, civil war breaks out in Finland. Jussi Mantere and his friends, the Solbakken brothers—Anders, Karl, and Ivor, known as Rabbit—as well as Karl’s wife, Viktoria, are swept into the fighting. The war rages for months and the country is laid waste. When peace is declared, the price of mending the fractured country is silence: to heal and forget, both victor and vanquished, White and Red, are asked to not speak of the war. In the ensuing years, Jussi and other survivors immigrate to Canada, bringing their silence with them. In Port Arthur’s summer of 1955, events set in motion in 1918 come to haunt Jussi’s family. A stranger—or is it someone Jussi knows?—threatens the peace and safety of his family. Jussi must decide whether and how to break his silence about the past and its horrors, and spare his grandson the bitter burden of generations-old resentments. Spanning nearly 50 years, this novel shows how a few months of fighting in the 1918 Finnish Civil War can still influence a family in Port Arthur, Ontario in 1955.

From Isolation to War: 1931 - 1941

From Isolation to War: 1931 - 1941

In a major revision of this popular text, Dr. Justus Doenecke integrates scholarly research conducted in the 1990s to offer readers a fresh picture of the major events and historiographical controversies in American diplomacy in the decade before Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor. Individual chapters center on the aftermath of World War I, the Manchurian crisis, the expansion of Germany and Japan and the U.S. response, FDR's policy towards Europe from the Munich conference to his "shoot-on-sight" orders, and Roosevelt's stance toward Asia from the termination of the 1911 trade treaty with Japan and the breaking of diplomatic relations. A final chapter considers the background of the Pearl Harbor attack, stressing not only the role of Admiral Yamamoto but the revisionist arguments concerning event, including the "devil theory" of the president's culpability. This third edition includes entirely new material including discussions of Roosevelt's leadership style, the recognition of the Soviet Union, policy toward Cuba and Mexico, Pan-American conferences, the 1940 mission of Sumner Welles, the Four Freedoms, and the U.S. Army victory plan of autumn 1940. Certain other passages have been expanded, such as those concerning the background of American anti-interventionism, major peace grou...

The Agrarian Program of the Russian Socialist Revolutionary Party, 1900-1914 (Studia Historica)

The Agrarian Program of the Russian Socialist Revolutionary Party, 1900-1914 (Studia Historica)

This study examines the development of the agrarian program of the Russian Socialist Revolutionary Party (PSR). It focuses especially on the contributions made by three agrarian theoreticians of the party: Viktor Chernov, Panteleimon Vikhliaev, and N.I. Rakitnikov, all of whom were also main executives of the program in 1917. Up to 1904, the program was chiefly characterized by Chernov's aim to construct a counter-thesis to the agrarian political aims of the Russian Social Democrats on the basis of contemporary Western socialist ideas. This proposal for the socialization of the land underwent a change in content during 1905-07. It was turned into a demand for the enactment of a land law based on the legal views of the people already prevalent in the peasant communes. This change was mainly caused by the challenge that was posed to the PSR by the rising liberal movement and, since 1904, the evident intensification of the government's agrarian policy aimed at the destruction of the commune. The proposal for the socialization of the land reached its culmination in the land bill of the 104 in the Second Duma. It was the work by a group of agrarian specialists in the ranks of the PSR, of whom the most notable was the zemstvo statistician, Panteleimon Vikhliaev. According to this study...
