  • St Patrickby J. B. Bury; Thomas Charles-Edwards

    I.B.Tauris 2010; US$ 14.95

    St Patrick is perhaps the most venerated saint of the modern age, whose feast day is marked each year by massive celebrations across the world, from Dublin to New York and Sydney to Rio de Janeiro. Yet, in spite of his popularity, very little is known of his life, which is clouded by myth and uncertainty. The facts that are known - that he was born... more...

  • Common Groundby David Fairhall

    I.B.Tauris 2006; US$ 14.95

    When a small group of women set out to march to Greenham one summer day at the end of August 1981, none of them could have imagined that this outing would change their lives forever. Nor did they dream that their gesture that day would spark off a feminist protest movement that would last for decades spreading its influence across the world. This... more...

  • Investigating Firefly and Serenityby Rhonda V. Wilcox; Tanya Cochran

    I.B.Tauris 2008; US$ 14.95

    Joss Whedon, probably the first recognised tv auteur, who brought us Buffy and Angel, is also the creator of the remarkable space Western 'Firefly' and the major Firefly film 'Serenity'. 'Firefly' ran for twelve hour-long episodes in 2002 before being cancelled by the network. But this premature burial had an extraordinary outcome: the fans - self-named... more...

  • New Face of Terrorismby Nadine Gurr; Benjamin Cole

    I.B.Tauris 2004; US$ 14.95

    Anthrax, Smallpox, Sarin, blister, blood and choking agents...the list of potential weapons of mass destruction is enormous and varied. Today, the threat of these weapons to civilian populations seems as close as it has ever been. It was once thought that technological problems would prevent terrorists developing these weapons whilst moral issues would... more...

  • Embracing Cyprusby Pauline Green; Ray By Collins

    I.B.Tauris 2003; US$ 14.95

    When Archbiship Makarios was toppled as President of Cyprus in a 1974 coup and Turkish forces invaded the island, few saw Cyprus as part of the incipient drive to create a new Europe. Since then the torment of the divided island has deepened, with Greek and Turkish Cypriot politicians increasingly entrenched in their discord, while the Cyprus problem... more...

  • Contested Countrysideby Jeremy Burchardt; Philip Conford

    I.B.Tauris 2008; US$ 14.95

    Life in rural Britain has changed beyond recognition since the beginning of the 20th century. Not only dramatic events such as the ban on hunting and mad cow disease but also the growth of the organic movement, changes in farming practices and increasing rural poverty have all had an effect on how we view the countryside and the people who live there.... more...

  • Dirtby Ben Campkin; Rosie Cox

    I.B.Tauris 2012; US$ 14.95

    Dirt – and our rituals to eradicate it – are as much a part of our everyday lives as eating, breathing and sleeping. Yet this very fact means that we seldom stop to question what we mean by dirt. What do our attitudes to dirt and cleanliness tell us about ourselves and the societies we live in? Exploring a wide variety of settings – domestic, urban,... more...

  • Cyprus Conspiracy, Theby Brendan O'Malley; Ian Craig

    I.B.Tauris 2001; US$ 14.95

    A generation after the Greek colonels staged a coup on Cyprus in July 1974, dramatically ousting its Greek-Cypriot leader Archbishop Makarios, and Turkey retaliated by invading and seizing a third of the island, the historic Mediterranean island remains split in two. As divided as Berlin before the Wall came down, Cyprus is still bristling with troops... more...
