  • Liberty and Empireby Robert E. Toohey

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Though little known to most students of the American Revolution, the British Radicals of the 1770s championed the rights of Americans while advocating parliamentary reform and denouncing British colonial policies. Outspoken, eloquent, and innovative, the Radicals encouraged the American cause. They voiced ideas on liberty and empire that would echo... more...

  • Paper Bulletsby Harold M. Weber

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 45.00

    The calculated use of media by those in power is a phenomenon dating back at least to the seventeenth century, as Harold Weber demonstrates in this illuminating study of the relation of print culture to kingship under England's Charles II. Seventeenth-century London witnessed an enormous expansion of the print trade, and with this expansion came a... more...

  • Burke and the Nature of Politicsby Carl B. Cone

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Edmund Burke in recent years has assumed extraordinary stature in American political thinking as the father of neoconservatism. In this book, the first of a two-volume biography of this eighteenth-century English statesman, Mr. Cone brings important new evidence to his thesis that during the age of the American Revolution Burke was significant more... more...

  • Burke and the Nature of Politicsby Carl B. Cone

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In this second of two volumes, Carl B. Cone demonstrates once again that only through a study of Edmund Burke's active political life can one understand his thought. To Burke's important practical contributions to the art of government made prior to 1782 (Volume I, The Age of the American Revolution ) must now be added the extension of his thought... more...

  • For King, Constitution, and Countryby Robert Dozier

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    England trembled in 1792. In May, George III issued a proclamation warning his subjects of "diverse wicked and seditious writings" then being circulated which might "excite tumult and disorder." The response to this proclamation -- an unprecedented expression of loyalty to crown and constitution -- marked the beginnings of a movement that was to influence... more...

  • The Death of Oliver Cromwellby H.F. McMains

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    For centuries, rumors have circulated in England that Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell did not die of natural causes. Now, in a fascinating book that reads like a historical whodunit, we have a motive, a means, a murderer (complete with his own deathbed confession), and a supporting cast that includes John Milton and Andrew Marvell. Almost from the... more...

  • Odd Peopleby Basil Thomson

    Biteback Publishing 2015; US$ 10.19

    First World War espionage was a fascinating and dangerous affair, spawning widespread paranoia in its clandestine wake. The hysteria of the age, stoked by those within the British establishment who sought to manipulate popular panic, meant there was no shortage of suspects. Exaggerated claims were rife: some 80,000 Germans were supposedly hidden all... more...

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 124.95

    Igor Djordjevic explores the historiography of Holinshed's Chronicles through a literary lens, focusing on how Renaissance men and women read and understood historical texts. This study revaluates our understanding of Renaissance chronicle history and the impact of Holinshed on Tudor, Jacobean, and Caroline political discourse; the Chronicles emerge... more...

    Roger Makins, British Ambassador to Washington 1953-1956, was one of the most prominent and powerful diplomats of his time. His career was unusual for a Foreign Office official, in that such a large part of it took place in Washington and London, and was centered on Anglo-American relationships. This book describes his life, times and the important... more...
