'Cry Havoc' receives Outstanding Academic Title Award
Posted on 06/03/2012
Cry Havoc: How the Arms Race Drove the World to War, 1931-1941 by Professor Joe Maiolo has been selected for an 'Outstanding Academic Title Award' by Choice Magazine (Jan. 2012 issue).
The outstanding works have been selected for their excellence in scholarship and presentation, the significance of their contribution to the field and their value as important-often the first- treatment of their subject. 'Outstanding Academic Titles' are truly the 'best of the best'. The winners have been selected among 7,263 titles reviewed by Choice during the past year.
'A compelling read . . . While this is an academically informed book, Maiolo's skill rests in his ability to distil complex, and at times technical subjects, into a very readable prose . . . The book is important because it provides a thorough examination of a neglected aspect of the cause of the Second World War' (History Today )
