    In the heart of the Congo is rumored to live a dinosaur called Mokele-Mbembe, or the god-beast.

  • French Mediterraneansby Patricia M. E. Lorcin; Todd Shepard

    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...

  • Edge of Empireby Christian Tripodi

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Britain's often rather ad hoc approach to colonial expansion in the nineteenth century resulted in a variety of imaginative solutions designed to exert control over an increasingly diverse number of territories.
