  • Queer Domesticitiesby Matt Cook

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 105.00

    Oxford University Press, USA 2014; US$ 19.99

    From the headlines of local newspapers to the coverage of major media outlets, scenes of war, natural disaster, political revolution and ethnic repression greet readers and viewers at every turn.

  • Dedicated to Godby Abbie Reese

    Oxford University Press, USA 2013; US$ 25.99

    As a subculture, cloistered monastic nuns live hidden from public view by choice. Once a woman joins the cloister and makes final vows, she is almost never seen and her voice is not heard; her story is essentially nonexistent in the historical record and collective, public history. From interviews conducted over six years, Abbie Reese tells the stories... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 29.95

    Biteback Publishing 2013; US$ 23.33

    2014 marks the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War, arguably the definitive conflict in the history of Europe.
