The Balkan Games and Balkan Politics in the Interwar Years 1929 – 1939

The Balkan Games resulted on the one hand from the growth of modern European sport and the unsatisfactory performances of the Balkan athletes at national and international level, and on the other hand, from a desire to bring the Balkan peoples together in peace and concord. The Games were initiated in Athens in 1929 and increasingly became an integral part of the political, cultural and social life of the area. The common global reality is that when an athletic event is staged, attempted friendship seldom receives priority. In the 1930s, however, the Balkan Games provided a rare example of an international athletic event bringing antagonistic states together in friendship. This consideration of the significance of the Balkan Games as an instrument of political optimism provides clear evidence of the occasional positive influence of sport in politics. The work is a case-study of interest to political and social scientists and to historians of Europe and sport. This book was previously published as a special issue of the International Journal of the History of Sport.

Mary Elizabeth Auman was a teenager living in the rural south during the waning years of the Jazz Age when electricity, the radio, talking movies, and the 1928 Presidential election were the talk of her community. After rescuing her diary from being discarded by his father in the late 1950s, her nephew, William Auman, held on to the written memories for years until recently when, as a tribute to her memory, he decided to share both Mary's insight into the social and academic life she experienced as well as his own historical clarifications. Through her journal entries, Mary presents a portrait of life in a rural southern village, describing many trips with friends to parties, movies, and fairs. While providing vivid accounts of life in the dormitories at coed Elon College and social activities at parties, ball games, and other collegiate events, she also details how she and her classmates rebelled against the taboos of dating, dancing, and smoking often finding themselves on probation or suspended from school as punishment. The Diary of Mary Elizabeth Auman, Seagrove, North Carolina, 1928 1930 Provides a fascinating glimpse into southern history and into the development of a rebellious attitude by young females against the gender conventions of the day in a rapidly changing world.

Unnatural Deaths in the USSR, 1928-1954

Author: Iosif G. Dyadkin

This astonishing and sobering account of government- and war-induced civilian deaths in the Soviet Union calculates that Soviet loss of life between 1928 and 1954 was far higher than Western ex­perts have ever believed. Applying mathematical techniques to Soviet demographic statistics, Dyadkin shows that Stalinist repres­sion and World War II must have taken the lives of between 43 and 52 million Soviet citizens. In the first period, 1929-36, one of collectivization, Stalin control­led and eliminated classes; during the Great Purge of 1937-38, mil­lions of Communist party members and bureaucrats were executed, and then the purge extended into the Red Army. Dyadkin shows that World War II took close to 30 million lives and that during 1950-53 another 450,000 died in prison camps.

The Great Okeechobee Hurricane of 1928

If you live in the Caribbean or Florida, you've probably heard tales about the Great Okeechobee Hurricane, which killed thousands and left behind wide swaths of destruction. Also known as the Saint Felipe (Phillip) Segundo Hurricane, it developed in the far eastern Atlantic before making its way over land and taking the lives of Bahamian migrant workers and Florida residents. This thoroughly researched history considers the storm and its aftermath, exploring an important historical weather event that has been neglected. Through historical photographs of actual damage and personal recollections, author and veteran meteorologist Wayne Neely examines the widespread devastation that the hurricane caused. You'll get a detailed account on: workers who were caught unprepared on the farms in the Okeechobee region of Florida; challenges that those involved in the recovery effort faced after the hurricane passed; personal and community turmoil that took decades to fully overcome. This massive storm killed at least 2,500 people in the United States of which approximately 1,400 were Bahamians migrant workers, becoming the second deadliest hurricane in the history of the United States, behind only the Great Galveston Hurricane of 1900. To this day, it remains the deadliest hurricane to ever strike the Bahamas.
