  • Witches of Fifeby Stuart MacDonald

    Birlinn 2014; US$ 8.74

    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...

  • The Reign of Mary Iby Robert Tittler; Judith Richards

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 30.99

    Until recently, the reign of Mary Tudor was generally seen as a ?sterile interlude? in the Tudor century, with Mary herself dismissed as ?Bloody Mary?.

    Dr Foster traces the eventful history of the Church of England from shortly after its establishment in Elizabeth I's reign down to 1640, when it was on the verge of destruction.

    This study of religious tensions in Early Modern England explores the different religious separatist movements between 1550-1660.

  • Charles I 1625-1640by Brian Quintrell

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 45.99

    Draws on recent interpretations of the period to re-evaluate Charles I's reign.

  • British in the Americas 1480-1815, Theby Anthony Mcfarlane

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 71.95

    Of northern European nations, the British had the greatest impact on the Americas. Their history there embraces far more than the colonies that became the United States: England had been in the New World for a century before those colonies were established, and the British presence long outlived their loss. This integrated account of that involvement... more...

    John Morrill has been at the forefront of modern attempts to explain the origins, nature and consequences of the English Revolution. These twenty essays -- seven either specially written or reproduced from generally inaccessible sources -- illustrate the main scholarly debates to which he has so richly contributed: the tension between national and... more...

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 68.50

    In comprehensive detail Margaret King analyzes the activities of the patricians who were predominant in the ranks of the humanists and who made humanist thought a powerful tool in the service of their class and of the city itself.

  • Prophecy and Reasonby Andrew Cooper Fix

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 36.50

    During the second half of the seventeenth century the entire intellectual framework of educated Europe underwent a radical transformation. A secularized view of humanity and nature was replacing faith in the direct operation of God's will in the temporal world, while a growing confidence in human reason and the Scientific Revolution turned back the... more...
