Before the war crimes trial began, it was self-evident to most people that the Nazi leaders were demonic maniacs.</p> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-categories"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Holocaust </div> <div class="field-item even"> Military/naval history </div> <div class="field-item odd"> Political history </div> <div class="field-item even"> Science and technology </div> <div class="field-item odd"> Social history </div> <div class="field-item even"> Europe </div> <div class="field-item odd"> 20th Century </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9780300226935" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 19 Jul 2017 15:10:38 +0000 import.manager 179824 at http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online Ancient Lamps in the J Paul Getty Museum http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9781606065136 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Bussiere, Jean </div> <div class="field-item even"> <div class="field-label-inline"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Lindros Wohl, Birgitta </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-publisher-ref"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/history-online/publisher/yale-university-press">Yale University Press</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-isbn"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> ISBN:&nbsp;</div> 9781606065136 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-pub-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date published:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Tue, 2017-08-01</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-format"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Paperback </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Price:&nbsp;</div> £55 </div> </div> </div> <p>In the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum are more than six hundred ancient lamps that span the sixth century BCE to the seventh century CE, most from the Roman Imperial period and largely created in Asia Minor or North Africa. These lamps have much to reveal about life, religion, pottery, and trade in the ancient Graeco-Roman world. Most of the Museum&#39;s lamps have never before been published, and this extensive typological catalogue will thus be an invaluable scholarly resource for art historians, archaeologists, and those

This book of essays from established and emerging scholars examines the impact since 1600 of out-migration from Scotland upon the homeland, on the migrants themselves, on the destinations in which they settled, and upon their descendants and &lsquo;affinity&rsquo; Scots. It does so through a focus on the under-researched themes of slavery, cross-cultural encounters, economics, war, tourism, and the modern diaspora since 1945.</p> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-categories"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Cultural history </div> <div class="field-item even"> Population </div> <div class="field-item odd"> Imperial and colonial </div> <div class="field-item even"> Social history </div> <div class="field-item odd"> Africa </div> <div class="field-item even"> Australasia and Pacific </div> <div class="field-item odd"> Britain and Ireland </div> <div class="field-item even"> North America </div> <div class="field-item odd"> 16th-17th Century </div> <div class="field-item even"> 18th-19th Century </div> <div class="field-item odd"> 20th Century </div> <div class="field-item even"> 21st Century </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9781474429320" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 19 Jul 2017 15:10:34 +0000 import.manager 179751 at http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online Gulag Letters http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9780300209310 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Formakov, Arsenii </div> <div class="field-item even"> <div class="field-label-inline"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Johnson, Emily D. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-publisher-ref"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/history-online/publisher/yale-university-press">Yale University Press</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-isbn"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> ISBN:&nbsp;</div> 9780300209310 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-pub-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date published:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Sat, 2017-07-01</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-format"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Hardback </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Price:&nbsp;</div> £60 </div> </div> </div> <p>A poignant collection of letters written by the Latvian poet, novelist, and newspaper editor Arsenii Formakov while interned in Soviet labor camps</p> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-categories"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Cultural history </div> <div class="field-item even"> Political history </div> <div class="field-item odd"> Social history </div> <div class="field-item even"> Asia and Middle East </div> <div class="field-item odd"> Europe </div> <div class="field-item even"> 20th Century </div> </div> </div> Wed, 19 Jul 2017 15:10:38 +0000 import.manager 179823 at http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online Henry http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9780300229714 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> No. 4 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Given-Wilson, Chris </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-publisher-ref"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/history-online/publisher/yale-university-press">Yale University Press</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-isbn"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> ISBN:&nbsp;</div> 9780300229714 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-pub-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date published:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Tue, 2017-08-01</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-format"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Paperback </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Price:&nbsp;</div> £19.99 </div> </div> </div> <p>Henry IV (1399&ndash;1413), the son of John of Gaunt, duke of Lancaster, seized the English throne at the age of thirty-two from his cousin Richard II and held it until his death, aged forty-five, when he was succeeded by his son, Henry V. This comprehensive and nuanced biography restores to his rightful place a king often overlooked in favor of his illustrious progeny.

crosses continents, languages, and almost a century, Gregory Woods identifies the ways in which homosexuality has helped shape Western culture. Extending from the trials of Oscar Wilde to the gay liberation era, this book examines a period in which increased visibility made acceptance of homosexuality one of the measures of modernity. Woods shines a revealing light on the diverse, informal networks of gay people in the arts and other creative fields.</p> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-categories"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Gender and Women </div> <div class="field-item even"> Social history </div> <div class="field-item odd"> Europe </div> <div class="field-item even"> North America </div> <div class="field-item odd"> 20th Century </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9780300228748" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 19 Jul 2017 15:10:39 +0000 import.manager 179842 at http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online How the Past was Used http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9780197266120 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Historical cultures, c. 750-2000 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Lambert, Peter </div> <div class="field-item even"> <div class="field-label-inline"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Weiler, Björn </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-publisher-ref"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/history-online/publisher/oxford-university-press">Oxford University Press</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-isbn"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> ISBN:&nbsp;</div> 9780197266120 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-pub-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date published:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Sat, 2017-07-01</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-format"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Hardback </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Price:&nbsp;</div> £90 </div> </div> </div> <p>The book explores how human societies have used, constructed, and interpreted their pasts.

and public intellectual who helped shape the twentieth century. While researching this masterful work, acclaimed biographer Christoph Irmscher was granted unprecedented access to the Eastman family archive, allowing him to document little-known aspects of the famously handsome and charismatic radical. Considered one of the &ldquo;hottest radicals&rdquo; of his time, Eastman edited two of the most important modernist magazines, The Masses and The Liberator, and campaigned for women&rsquo;s suffrage and world peace.</p> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-categories"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Political history </div> <div class="field-item even"> 20th Century </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9780300222562" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Wed, 19 Jul 2017 15:10:38 +0000 import.manager 179831 at http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online Max Weber and 'The Protestant Ethic' http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9780198807667 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Twin Histories </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Ghosh, Peter </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-publisher-ref"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/history-online/publisher/oxford-university-press">Oxford University Press</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-isbn"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> ISBN:&nbsp;</div> 9780198807667 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-pub-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date published:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Sat, 2017-07-01</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-format"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Paperback </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Price:&nbsp;</div> £19.99 </div> </div> </div> <p>An intellectual biography of Max Weber which uses his most famous work, The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism as its starting point, with wider reference to the social, political, and religious thought of the time.</p> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-categories"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Ecclesiastical and religious history </div> <div class="field-item even"> Economic history </div> <div class="field-item odd"> Political history </div> <div class="field-item even"> Social history </div> <div class="field-item odd"> Britain and Ireland </div> <div class="field-item even"> Europe </div> <div class="field-item odd"> North America </div> <div class="field-item even"> 20th Century </div> </div> </div> Wed, 19 Jul 2017 15:10:35 +0000 import.manager 179791 at http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online Medieval Damascus http://www.history.ac.uk/history-online/book/isbn/9781474426398 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Plurality and Diversity in an Arabic Library: The Ashrafiya Library Catalogue </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Author(s):&nbsp;</div> Hirschler, Konrad </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-publisher-ref"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/history-online/publisher/edinburgh-university-press">Edinburgh University Press</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-isbn"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> ISBN:&nbsp;</div> 9781474426398 </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-pub-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Date published:&nbsp;</div> <span class="date-display-single">Tue, 2017-08-01</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-format"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Paperback </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Price:&nbsp;</div> £29.99 </div> </div> </div> <p>This book discusses the largest and earliest medieval library of the Middle East for which we have documentation &ndash; the Ashrafiya library in the very centre of Damascus &ndash; and edits its catalogue.

Stalin&rsquo;s sudden collapse and death in March 1953 was as dramatic and mysterious as his life.

Challenging the idea of a Mediterranean split between Islam and Christianity, the book shows how the Maghrib (North Africa) was not a Muslim, Arab monolith or an extension of the exotic Orient. Rather, medieval North Africa was as diverse and complex as Latin Europe.</p> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-categories"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item
