Re-visiting World War I

Interpretations and Perspectives of the Great Conflict

Edited By Jarosław Suchoples and Stephanie James

This book discusses various aspects of World War I. It focuses on topics proposed by contributors resulting from their own research interests. Nevertheless, as a result of common efforts, re-visiting those chosen aspects of the Great War of 1914–1918 enables the presentation of a volume that shows the multidimensional nature and consequences of this turning point in the history of particular nations, if not all mankind. This book, if treated as an intellectual journey through several continents, shows that World War I was not exclusively Europe’s war, and that it touched – in different ways – more parts of the globe than usually considered.

Stephanie James has adjunct status at Flinders University, Australia. Her background includes teaching Australian Indigenous history, and both European and Australian history at university and senior secondary level. Her 2010 MA focused on colonial Irish-Australians in South Australia, the most Irish area of Australia’s least Irish colony. In 2013, she completed her PhD examining issues of Irish-Australian identity and loyalty at times when the British Empire faced crisis, with particular emphasis on World War One. Although her main interest involves Irish-Australian history in both the national and transnational contexts, her recent research has focused on the parallels between Irish and German-Australians in terms of their identity in a strongly Anglo Australia.
