    University of Virginia Press 2016; US$ 39.50

    Although much is known about the political stance of the military at large during the Civil War, the political party affiliations of individual soldiers have received little attention.

  • Cities of Cultureby John R. Gold

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    City authorities in recent years have competed vigorously to gain the right to host international festivals. In doing so they are heirs to a long tradition, since cities have always served as a natural location for festivals and fairs, providing settings on a scale impossible elsewhere. Cities of Culture examines the role of the Western city as the... more...

  • Art in the Time of Colonyby Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    It is often assumed that the verbal and visual languages of Indigenous people had little influence upon the classification of scientific, legal, and artistic objects in the metropolises and museums of nineteenth-century colonial powers. However colonized locals did more than merely collect material for interested colonizers. In developing the concept... more...

  • Byzantium and the Modern Greek Identityby David Ricks; Paul Magdalino

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Perhaps because of the fact that modern Greece is, through the Orthodox Church, inextricably linked with the Byzantine heritage, the precise meaning of this heritage, in its various aspects, has hitherto been surprisingly little discussed by scholars. This collection of specially commissioned essays aims to present an overview of some of the different,... more...

  • Crime, Gender and Consumer Culture in Nineteenth-Century Englandby Tammy C. Whitlock

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Whilst the actual origins of English consumer culture are a source of much debate, it is clear that the nineteenth century witnessed a revolution in retailing and consumption.
