    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 61.38

    It is sometimes said that, in the 21st century, the country that tells the better story wins, rather than the country whose army can prevail on the battlefield.

However, while most of... more...

  • The Summer Capitals of Europe, 1814-1919by Marina Soroka

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    This book is about the great European health spas of the nineteenth century: what they were, how they operated, what life was like there and how their functions evolved to the point where their original medicinal purpose was relegated to a secondary place by the unintended uses of spas as stages of social and political interactions. These popular... more...

  • Constructing Genocide and Mass Violenceby Maureen S. Hiebert

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    This book addresses two closely related questions: what is the process by which the relatively short and violent genocides of the twentieth century and beyond have occurred? Why have these instances of mass violence been genocidal and not some other form of state violence, repression, or conflict? Hiebert answers these questions by exploring the... more...
