New. $85. * World War One in Global History 1914 to 1924: A Brief Calendar of State Practice is a chronicle of official transactions in diplomacy, international law and international relations combined with documentary excerpts and explanatory references. The book takes the form of a Calendar displaying original scholarly content in a user-friendly format. The reporting period covers eleven years of war and peace to the end of 1924. For that period the Calendar offers an unrivalled repertory of 500 acts and instruments adopted by the belligerent and neutral parties worldwide, including the ongoing colonial relations. The book introduces 321 extracts reproduced from the documents cited. The book is packed with bibliographical information. For every act identified the Calendar locates reliable publications available as representative sources of record. Each of the 500 main entries is evidenced and substantiated by pin-point references to source materials of civil or state production. Official records have priority and alternative sources are taken into account. Nearly all documents are cited from multiple sources, in appropriate publications, in relevant languages. The Calendar respects the languages of the parties. While the Calendar's language is English, in selection of sources the bibliographical references range worldwide. Many entries refer to records in languages other than English. The sources extend in time from near the events reported to others published recently. Of course the leading languages of documents cited are English, French, German, Russian, and Spanish, as these predominate in records of World War One. Further languages of documents pin-pointed in the published sources cited are: Arabic, Armenian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, Hungarian, Icelandic, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Swedish, Turkish (Ottoman and modern), and Ukrainian.
