  • Distant Strangersby James Vernon

    University of California Press 2014; US$ 24.95

    What does it mean to live in the modern world? How different is that world from those that preceded it, and when did we become modern? In Distant Strangers , James Vernon argues that the world was made modern not by revolution, industrialization, or the Enlightenment. Instead, he shows how in Britain, a place long held to be the crucible of modernity,... more...

  • Scotland's Future Historyby Stuart McHardy

    Luath Press Ltd 2014;

    McHardy presents a new approach to history, changing our mindset to look at Scotland as the centre of our story. Rather than starting from the Mediterranean, from the classical/Christian bias we have been taught for centuries. Rather than being a remote dark land populated by barbaric tribes. Perhaps we were the centre of a well-organised civilisation... more...

  • Witches of Fifeby Stuart MacDonald

    Birlinn 2014;

    Along the coast of Fife, in villages like Culross and Pittenweem, historical markers and pamphlets now include the fact that some women were executed as witches within these burghs. Still the reality of what happened the night that Janet Cornfoot was lynched in the harbour is hard to grasp as one sits in the harbour of Pittenweem watching the fishing... more...

  • Malcolmby John Malcolm

    Birlinn 2014;

    Highly regarded in India to this day, Sir John Malcolm is remarkably little known in his native Scotland. This book describes his extraordinary journey from humble origins to become a leading player in the transformation of the East India Company from a largely commercial enterprise into an agent of imperial government, during a crucial period of... more...

  • Dressing Judeans and Christians in Antiquityby Kristi Upson-Saia; Carly Daniel-Hughes; Alicia J. Batten

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 129.95

    This volume aims to understand religious aspects of dress in the ancient world by examining a diverse range of religious sources, including literature, art, performance, coinage, economic markets, and memories.

  • Failing Our Veteransby Mark Boulton

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 73.50

    The original 1944 G.I. Bill holds a special place in the American imagination. In popular mythology, it stands as the capstone of the Greatest Generation narrative of World War II, a fitting reward for the nation’s heroes. Given the almost universal acclaim afforded the bill, future generations of warriors might well have expected to receive similar... more...

  • Victoria at Warby Michael McKernan

    NewSouth 2014; US$ 39.99

    During the First World War, in Melbourne and communities throughout Victoria, schoolchildren knitted socks for the troops serving in Gallipoli, the Middle East and on the Western Front. Their families set up Red Cross branches to support the 91,000 Victorian servicemen and women overseas. Victoria at War records the achievements of the state’s... more...

  • Seeking Truthby Jamie C. Kassler

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 144.95

    In the early 1690s, Roger North’s search for truth and the knowledge of human nature was interrupted by three events: his reading of Newton’s books on mechanics and optics; his correspondence with the Norfolk clergyman Samuel Clarke; and his reading and response to Clarke’s new publication on the philosophy of the Godhead. Kassler details... more...

  • Social Networks and Regional Identity in Bronze Age Italyby Emma Blake

    Cambridge University Press 2014; US$ 79.00

    This innovative book uses social network analysis to trace the origins of pre-Roman Italian peoples from their earliest exchange networks. more...

  • The Great Warby Isobel Charman

    Random House 2014; US$ 29.72

    During the First World War three quarters of a million British people died - a figure so huge that it feels impossible to give it a human context. Consequently we struggle to truly grasp the impact this devastating conflict must have had on people's day-to-day lives. We resort to looking at the war from a distance, viewing its events in terms of... more...
