Historians have long noted that Jews often appear at the storm center of European history. Nowhere is this more true than when dealing with the tumultuous years between the Nazi seizure of power in Germany on January 30, 1933 and the proclamation of the State of Israel on May 14, 1948. Yet, the events of Jewish history must also be viewed within the broader contexts of European, American, and global history. Spanning sixteen years of destruction and rebirth, A World in Turmoil is the first book of its kind, an integrated chronology which attempts to provide the researcher with clear and concise data describing the events as they unfolded. From the murder pits of Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe, to the battlefields in all the major theatres of operation, to the home fronts of all the major and minor combatants, A World in Turmoil covers a broad spectrum of events. Although major events throughout the world are noted, the volume concentrates on events in Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas. While the volume deals primarily with politics, significant social and intellectual trends are woven into the chronology. Augmented by an introductory essay and postscript to help place events in their historical context, by a bibliography, and by name, place, and subject indexes, the volume provides scholars and researchers alike a basic reference tool on sixteen of the most important years in modern history.

?A World in Turmoil: An Integrated Chronology of the Holocaust and World War II is a day-by-day list of the events that occurred during 1933-8. An introductory essay sets the stage with a description of the political and economic events that resulted in Hitler's rise to power. This is followed by lists that show what was happening on any given day during this period. Events are placed within the political and social framework of the time so that one can see historical relationships and understand the context. A glossary, bibliography, and name, place, and subject indexes facilitate the use of this source. This chronology is more detailed and covers a larger time span than that in the appendix to The Enclyclopedia of the Holocaust. Smaller libraries that cannot afford The Enclyclopedia of the Holocaust will find A World in Turmoil helpful for providing historical perspective. Larger collections and special libraries will want it as a supplementary tool.?-Reference Books Bulletin
