๐Ÿ“™ Pioneering History on Two Continents: An Autobiography by Bruce F. Pauley โ€” download pdf


Bruce F. Pauley draws on his family and personal history to tell a story that examines the lives of Volga Germans during the eighteenth century, the pioneering experiences of his family in late nineteenth-century Nebraska, and the dramatic transformations that influenced the history profession during the second half of the twentieth century. An award-winning historian of anti-Semitism, Nazism, and totalitarianism Pauley helped shape historical interpretation from the 1970s to the โ€™90s both in the United States and Central Europe.ย 

Pioneering History on Two Continents provides an intimate look at the shifting approaches to the historianโ€™s craft during a volatile period of world history, with an emphasis on twentieth-century Central European political, social, and diplomatic developments. It also examines the greater sweep of history through the authorโ€™s firsthand experiences as well as those of his ancestors who participated in these global currents through their migration from Germany to the steppes of Russia to the Great Plains of the United States.
