    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 95.00

    As seen in military documents, medical journals, novels, films, television shows, and memoirs, soldiers? invisible wounds are not innate cracks in individual psyches that break under the stress of war.

  • Sacral Kingship Between Disenchantment and Re-enchantmentby Ronald G. Asch

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 95.00

    France and England are often seen as monarchies standing at opposite ends of the spectrum of seventeenth-century European political culture.

  • Talking Stonesby Elisabetta Viggiani

    Berghahn Books 2014; US$ 95.00

This book examines how collective memory and material culture are used to support present political... more...
