  • The Twentieth Centuryby Clive Ponting

    Henry Holt and Co. 2014; US$ 8.99

    For much of the world, the twentieth century can be seen as a big-budget disaster film--the stifling darkness of oppression, the green of the ruling classes. For the world's elite, the near-universal adoption of capitalism today reveals modern history as a narrative of unbroken progress. † Eschewing conventional chronological accounts, The Twentieth... more...

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 134.95

    With the exception of John Knox, no one did more to shape the Scottish Reformation than Andrew Melville. Remembered chiefly as a firebrand defender of radical Presbyterianism and reformer of the Scottish university system, his broader contributions to the cultural development of early modern Scotland - his poetry and prose - have largely been marginalised... more...

  • Challenging Orthodoxiesby Sigrun Haude; Melinda S. Zook

  • Castiglione's Allegoryby W. R. Albury

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 124.95
