    UNP - Nebraska 2016; US$ 65.00

    While the Mediterranean is often considered a distinct, unified space, recent scholarship on the early modern history of the sea has suggested that this perspective is essentially a Western one, devised from the vantage point of imperial power that historically patrolled the region?s seas and controlled its ports. By contrast, for the peoples of... more...

  • The African Colonyby John Buchan

    Start Classics 2014; US$ 1.99

    In 2005, twenty-two years of civil war in Sudan were brought to an end by the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement. Negotiations between north and south had ended in compromise, however, and hopes of a unified state that was open, democratic and secular, had fallen to secession.
