Muovendosi in una interdisciplinare "terra di nessuno", confrontando dati economici e finanziari, rileggendo i testi dei "poeti di guerra", gli articoli dei principali quotidiani dell'epoca, come pure i libri di memorie o i documenti diplomatici, Ferguson fa piazza pulita di tanti miti e luoghi comuni e solleva questioni cruciali che intaccano alla radice la nostra percezione e conoscenza della prima guerra mondiale: è vero che l'opinione pubblica accolse la guerra con entusiasmo? Chi vinse la pace, o meglio, a chi toccò di pagare il prezzo della guerra? E soprattutto: ne valse la pena? Alla fine "Il grido dei morti", nelle sue conclusioni, ci consegna un'unica, terribile verità: la prima guerra mondiale non fu soltanto una tragedia. Fu il più grave errore della storia moderna.

An acclaimed historian offers a radical new history of the links between politics and economics, one that draws unsettling conclusions about the future of both capitalism and democracy. Does money make the world go round, as Cabaret's Master of Ceremonies sang to us? In The Cash Nexus, acclaimed historian Niall Ferguson offers a radical and surprising answer—No. Ferguson thinks it is high time we re-examined the link between economics and politics, in the aftermath not only of the failure of socialism but also of the apparent triumph of American-style capitalism. His central argument is that the conflicting impulses of sex, violence, and power are together more powerful than money. In particular, political events and institutions have often dominated economic development.

Genre: History

World WAR I was not only the first of the major catastrophes disrupting this century, but perhaps the worst, especially in its long-term impact. Even in an era when we have learned to count the dead in millions, some casualty figures for the Great War are still difficult to grasp. In one attack at Ypres in Belgium the British lost a staggering 13,000 men in a mere three hours, while gaining no more than 100 yards for the sacrifice. On July 1, 1916, the first day of the Battle of the Somme, the British suffered 60,000 casualties in an assault preceded by a six-day artillery bombardment of German lines. Although the Germans had been hit by three million shells along a 12-mile stretch, enough survived to offer fierce resistance. When this battle ended, total casualties amounted to over 1.1 million men. By 1918, the Allies counted 5.4 million dead and 7 million wounded; the two Central Powers suffered 4 million deaths and 8.3 million wounded.
