    University of Alabama Press 2015; US$ 29.95

    Over the past thirty years, oral history has found increasing favor among social scientists and humanists, with scholars ?rediscovering? the oral interview as a valuable method for obtaining information about the daily realities and historical consciousness of people, their histories, and their culture.

  • The Crisis of the Twelfth Centuryby Thomas N. Bisson

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 28.95

    Medieval civilization came of age in thunderous events like the Norman Conquest and the First Crusade. Power fell into the hands of men who imposed coercive new lordships in quest of nobility.

  • Must We Divide History Into Periods?by Jacques Le Goff; Malcolm DeBevoise

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 29.99

    We have long thought of the Renaissance as a luminous era that marked a decisive break with the past, but the idea of the Renaissance as a distinct period arose only during the nineteenth century.

  • Other Pasts, Different Presents, Alternative Futuresby Jeremy M. Black

    Indiana University Press 2015; US$ 29.99

    What if there had been no World War I or no Russian Revolution? What if Napoleon had won at Waterloo in 1815, or if Martin Luther had not nailed his complaints to the church door at Wittenberg in 1517, or if the South had won the American Civil War? The questioning of apparent certainties or "known knowns" can be fascinating and, indeed, "What if?"... more...
