  • Dreadnoughtby Roger Parkinson

    I.B.Tauris 2015; US$ 32.00

    The years before World War I were the ?Age of the Dreadnought?. The monumental battleship design, first introduced by Admiral Fisher to the Royal Navy in 1906, was quickly adopted around the world and led to a new era of maritime warfare. In this book, Roger Parkinson provides a re-writing of the naval history of Britain and the other leading naval... more...

  • Local Journalismby Rasmus Kleis Nielsen

    I.B.Tauris 2015; US$ 23.00

    For more than a century, local journalism has been taken almost for granted. But the twenty-first century has brought major challenges. The newspaper industry that has historically provided most local coverage is in decline and it is not yet clear whether digital media will sustain new forms of local journalism. This book provides an international... more...

  • Why Buffy Mattersby Rhonda V. Wilcox

    I.B.Tauris 2005; US$ 19.00

    Rhonda Wilcox is a world authority on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, who has been writing and lecturing about the show since its arrival on our screens. This book is the distillation of this remarkable body of work and thought, a celebration of the series that she proposes is an aesthetic test case for television. Buffy is enduring as art, she argues, by... more...

  • Happy Stripper, Theby Jacki Willson

    I.B.Tauris 2007; US$ 25.00

    If the burlesque stripper, with her bawdy spirit and unruly insubordination, has emerged for many as a new 'empowering' model for the sexually aware woman, then she also strikes horror in the heart of second wave feminism. Embodied by high profile artistes such as Dita von Teese and Catherine d?Lish, the explosive revival of striptease, burlesque and... more...

  • Innovation and Empire in Turkeyby Tuncay Zorlu

    I.B.Tauris 2011; US$ 47.00

    Ottoman naval technology underwent a transformation under the rule of Sultan Selim III. New types of sailing warships such as two- and three-decked galleons, frigates and corvettes began to dominate the Ottoman fleet, rendering the galley-type oared ships obsolete. This period saw technological innovations such as the adoption of the systematic copper... more...

  • Young Turk Legacy and Nation Building, Theby Erik J. Zürcher

    I.B.Tauris 2014; US$ 32.00

    The decline and eventual collapse of the Ottoman Empire and the founding of the Turkish republic were among the most momentous events of the early twentieth century. This book shows that, although traditionally considered to be a complete break with the Ottoman past, in fact, much of kemalist rhetoric in the early years of the Republic was also evident... more...

  • Turkeyby Erik Jan Zurcher

    I.B.Tauris 2004; US$ 32.00

    This revised edition builds upon and updates its twin themes of Turkey's continuing incorporation into the capitalist world and the modernization of state and society. It begins with the forging of closer links with Europe after the French Revolution, and the changing face of the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century. Zürcher argues that Turkey's history... more...

  • Unknown Stalin, Theby Roy Medvedev; Zhores A. Medvedev; Ellen Dahrendorf

    I.B.Tauris 2003; US$ 7.12

    Josef Stalin remains one of the greatest enigmas of modern history. Unflinching, impenetrable, inhuman in his cruelty, bathed in misery himself, he represents to many a very paradigm of evil ? perhaps, in his icy rationalism, even more so than Hitler himself. More than a hundred biographies of Stalin have been written since his death in 1953, but 'The... more...

  • Battle for Budapestby Krisztian Ungvary; Ladislaus Lob

    I.B.Tauris 2011; US$ 17.00

    The battle of Budapest in the bleak winter of 1944-45 was one of the longest and bloodiest city sieges of the Second World War. From the appearance of the first Soviet tanks on the outskirts of the capital to the capture of Buda castle 102 days elapsed. In terms of human trauma, it comes second only to Stalingrad, comparisons to which were even being... more...

  • Lost Capital of Byzantiumby Steven Runciman

    I.B.Tauris 2009; US$ 16.00

    Clinging to a rugged hillside in the lush valley of Sparta lies Mistra, one of the most dramatically beautiful Byzantine cities in Greece, a place steeped in history, myth and romance. Following the Frankish conquest of the Peloponnese in the 13th century, William II of Villehardouin built a great castle on a hill near Sparta that later came to be... more...
