  5. Stories of True Crime in Tudor and Stuart England

    Edited by Ken MacMillan 

    "Ken MacMillan’s Stories of True Crime is both a treasury of early modern true crime stories and a valuable resource for instructors and students of early modern legal, social and cultural history. The author has painstakingly selected, edited, transcribed and annotated a broad range of early modern criminal accounts: some indeed sensational and bloody, others more prosaic, but all of them compelling and instructive, shedding light on both the legal and larger social and cultural contexts of crime and punishment in late Elizabethan and Stuart England." -Andrea McKenzie, University of Victoria, Canada

  6. Fascism and Ideology: Italy, Britain, and Norway

    By Salvatore Garau 

    This book develops a number of new conceptual tools to tackle some of the most hotly debated issues concerning the nature of fascism, using three profoundly different national contexts in the inter-war years as case studies: Italy, Britain and Norway. It explores how fascist ideology was the result of a sustained struggle between competing internal factions, which created a precarious, but also highly dynamic, balance between revolutionary/totalitarian and conservative/authoritarian tendencies.

  9. The Material of World History

    Edited by Tina Mai Chen and David S. Churchill 

    This volume considers the confluence of World History and historical materialism, with the following guiding question in mind: given developments in the field of historical materialism concerned with the intersection of race, gender, labor, and class, why is it that within the field of World History, historical materialism has been marginalized, precisely as World History orients toward transnational socio-cultural phenomenon, micro-studies, or global histories of networks?
