CHINA’S WORLD

NEW

What Does China Want? KERRY BROWN The global aspirations of the next great superpower In the next decade China’s actions on the world stage will affect us all. A new superpower, with the largest population and GDP on the globe, there are now fears that China is becoming more assertive. Here, award- winning China expert Kerry Brown guides us through China’s foreign policy, from its skirmishes with US Navy destroyers in the South China Sea to its arguments with Japan over the Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands and its increased displays of military prowess – including huge investments in cyber warfare. Brown also assesses China’s extraordinary plan to create a ‘New Silk Road’ across Central Asia – one of the biggest infrastructure project in modern history. In doing so he seeks to answer a simple question: what does China want? The answer lies in the unique way China thinks about the world. A comprehensive analysis by one of the most recognised and respected authorities, and based upon unparalleled research into Chinese leaders, their beliefs and their instincts, China’s World is an essential read for the Western world.

BATTLES FOR FREEDOM

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

The Use and Abuse of American History ERIC FONER Pulitzer prize winning historian reveals the roots of radicalism in American history For almost four decades, Eric Foner, one of America’s most distinguished historians, has introduced readers of his journalism to unknown or forgotten characters in American history, methodically unearthing the hidden history of American radicalism. In this polemical work, Foner expounds on the relevance of Abraham Lincoln’s legacy in the age of Obama and on the need for another era of Reconstruction. In addition to calling out politicians and the powerful for their abuse and misuse of American history, Foner assesses some of his fellow leading historians of the late 20th century, including Richard Hofstadter, Howard Zinn and Eric Hobsbawm. In his assessment of the American left, Foner analyses the great tradition of U.S. radicalism that he has spent his career studying and which, he argues, Americans of a progressive disposition should seek to celebrate and retrieve.

BREXIT, NO EXIT

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

Why Britain Won’t Leave Europe DENIS MACSHANE Former Europe Minister spells out the future of Britain’s relationship with Europe The UK’s Brexit vote on 23rd June 2016 provided perhaps the most dramatic proof that the era of political and economic globalisation has ended. Populism, nationalism and xenophobia are surging across Europe and Brexit adds to the problems facing the established political order. This book shows how we reached this stage and what needs to be done now. As a former MP and Europe minister under Tony Blair, and latterly as a commentator and writer on European issues, Denis MacShane has a unique insider perspective on the events that led to Brexit and the behind-the-scenes discussions that followed. He argues that Brexit will not mean full rupture with Europe and that British capitalism will overcome the ultra-right-wing forces of the Conservative backbench and UKIP. Although the path to Article 50 and beyond will be fraught and tensely negotiated, Britain cannot and will not divorce itself from the continent of Europe and the European question will continue to be a defining feature of politics into the future.

BERLIN RULES

NEW

Europe and the German Way PAUL LEVER New insights into Germany’s role as the dominant player in Europe In the second half of the twentieth century, Germany became the dominant political and economic power in Europe – and in the EU. Yet Germany’s leadership of the EU is geared principally to the defence of German national interests. Germany exercises power in order to protect the German economy and to enable it to play an influential role in the wider world. Beyond that there is no underlying vision or purpose. In this book, former British ambassador to Germany Paul Lever provides a unique insight into modern Germany. He shows how Germany’s history has influenced its current economic and social development and provides important perspectives on Germany’s future political and cultural growth, especially in the context of the 2015 refugee crisis which saw over 1 million refugees offered a home in Germany. As Britain prepares to leave the European Union, this book will be essential reading and suggests the future shape of a Germany-dominated Europe.

The Struggle for Europe FELIX KLOS The true story of Churchill’s final great endeavour

‘When the Nazi power was broken, I asked myself what was the best advice I could give to my fellow citizens here in this island and across the channel in our ravaged continent. There was no difficulty in answering the question. My counsel to Europe can be given in a single word: Unite!’ Sir Winston Churchill in 1947.

Europe that would last a generation.

I.B.Tauris

Fighting against the new ‘Iron Curtain’ which had fallen across the world, and battling the personal disappointment of losing the 1945 election in Britain, Churchill dedicated the rest of his life to forging a united Europe. This book, based in part on new evidence, reveals his vision: Britain as a leading member of the European family. Through Churchill’s own private papers, Felix Klos unveils Churchill’s personal battle to regain his place in world affairs, his confidential conversations with European leaders and the thinking and preparation behind some of his most powerful speeches. A beautifully written history of Europe after the war, and a new glimpse at one of its greatest statesmen. Felix Klos is an historian who has had access to unpublished Churchill papers and archives. He undertook his research at the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and at Churchill’s family home, Chartwell.

Groundbreaking account of Syria’s descent into chaos Following the Arab Spring, Syria descended into civil and sectarian conflict.

In this book, former Special Envoy of the Netherlands to Syria Nikolaos van Dam explains the recent history of Syria, covering the growing disenchantment with the Assad regime, the chaos of civil war and the fractures which led to the rise and expansion of ISIS. Through an in-depth examination of the role of sectarian, regional and tribal loyalties in Syria, van Dam traces political developments within the Assad regime and the military and civilian power elite from the Arab Spring to the present day.

Erdogan and the Crisis of Modern Turkey SONER CAGAPTAY A revealing look at the man at the heart of modern Turkey The aborted coup in Turkey held the attention of the world; this is a country which will play a critical geopolitical role in the wars of the Middle East. The international spotlight has fallen on Recep Tayyip Erdogan – the powerful leader of the country – whose increasingly authoritarian regime has raised tensions enormously, both within and outside the country. His crackdown on the Gulen movement has been brutal and consistent – thousands of journalists arrested, academics officially banned from leaving the country, university deans fired and three quarters of the highest ranking army officers arrested. In some senses, this coup has given Erdogan the license to make good on his repeated promise to bring Turkey order and stability under an Islamist ‘strongman’. Here, leading Turkey expert Soner Cagaptay looks at where Erdogan comes from in Turkish history, what he believes in, how he has cemented his rule and assesses the threats he faces – from the liberal youth to the Gulen movement, the army plotters and the Kurdish question.

QATAR

The Rise to Power and Influence

NEW UPDATED PAPERBACK EDITION

ALLEN J. FROMHERZ What role does Qatar play in the Middle East and how does it differ from the other Gulf states? And how is a traditional tribal society adapting to its status as a burgeoning economic superpower? Qatar plays a crucial part in the Middle East today. With the second greatest natural gas resources in the region, Qatar’s economic clout is considerable. At the same time the Qatar story is replete with paradoxes: the state hosts the Al-Jazeera media network, an influential expression of Arab nationalism and anti-Americanism, while also hosting the principal US naval base in the region. Its leaders, like Saudi Arabia’s, adhere to the Wahhabi form of Sunni Islam, yet Qatar eyes its Saudi neighbours with suspicion. With this groundbreaking modern history, Allen Fromherz presents a full portrait which analyses these paradoxes and Qatar’s growing regional influence within a broader historical context. Allen J. Fromherz is Associate Professor of History at Georgia State University. November 2017 224 pages 234 x 156mm Paperback 9781780767819 £12.99

BEYOND SYRIA’S BORDERS A History of Territorial Disputes in the Middle East

NEW UPDATED PAPERBACK EDITION

EMMA LUNDGREN JÖRUM Lebanon, together with the province of Hatay in Turkey (containing Antakya) and the Golan Heights were all part of French mandate Syria, but are now all outside the boundaries of the modern Syrian state. The policies and reactions of Syria both to the loss of these territories and to the states that have either absorbed, annexed or emerged from them (Lebanon, Turkey and Israel) are the focus of Emma Jörum’s book. Jörum uses the differences in policy and discourse when it comes to each of these three cases to highlight the nature of territorial dispute in the region, and the processes of state-building and nationalism more generally.

TURKEY

NEW UPDATED EDITION

A Modern History ERIK J. ZÜRCHER New updated edition of the bestselling history of Turkey This revised 4th edition builds upon and updates its twin themes of Turkey’s continuing incorporation into the capitalist world and the modernisation of state and society. It begins with the forging of closer links with Europe after the French Revolution, and the changing face of the Ottoman Empire in the nineteenth century. Zürcher argues that Turkey’s history between 1908 and 1950 should be seen as a unity, and offers a strongly revisionist interpretation of Turkey’s founding father, Kemal Atatürk. In his account of the period since 1950, Zürcher focuses on the growth of mass politics; the three military coups; the thorny issue of Turkey’s human right’s record; the alliance with the West and relations with the European Community; Turkey’s ambivalent relations with the Middle East; the increasingly explosive Kurdish question; and the continuing political instability and growth of Islam.

CEO, CHINA

The Rise of Xi Jinping

NEW UPDATED PAPERBACK EDITION

KERRY BROWN China has become the powerhouse of the world economy, its incredible boom overseen by the elite members of the secretive and all-powerful Communist party. But since the election of Xi Jinping as General Secretary, life at the top in China has changed. In CEO China, the noted China expert Kerry Brown reveals the hidden story of the rise of the man dubbed the ‘Chinese Godfather’. Brown investigates his relationship with his revolutionary father, who was expelled by Mao during the Cultural Revolution, his business dealings and allegiances in China’s regional power struggles and his role in the internal battle raging between the old men of the Deng era and the new super-rich ‘princelings’. Xi Jinping’s China is powerful, aggressive and single-minded and this book will become a must-read for the Western world.

IRREGULAR WAR

ISIS and the New Threat From the Margins

NEW UPDATED PAPERBACK EDITION

PAUL ROGERS What does the rise of irregular military forces such as ISIS mean for the future security of the world? After more than a decade of the war on terror, security specialists thought that Islamist paramilitary movements were in decline; however the threat from ISIS in Syria and Iraq, Boko Haram in Nigeria, al-Qaida in Yemen, the chaos in Libya and the return of the Taliban in Afghanistan have all shown that to be wishful thinking. Paul Rogers, the distinguished global security specialist, provides a much-needed look at the rise of such global terrorist movements from the margins and presents a new argument as troubling as it is compelling.

DAWN OF A NEW ORDER

NEW

Geopolitics and the Clash of Ideologies REIN MÜLLERSON The challenges faced by the world in a new geopolitical era The most significant development in global politics following the end of the bi-polar Cold War era has been the rise of a multi-polar state system. This has led to the emergence of major potential super-powers, global rivalry, international terrorism and the gradual weakening of the one remaining hegemonic, uni-polar state after the Cold War – the US. The idealistic hopes following the collapse of communism have evaporated and Cold War competition between liberal capitalism and communism has been replaced by multipolar global rivalry that can only be resolved by a balance of power buttressed by international law. In this ambitious and thought-provoking book, Professor Rein Müllerson outlines the challenges associated with the new geopolitics of the twenty-first century. Based on in-depth research over several decades it is an essential tool for understanding the new world order and the ensuing crises in global politics.

The Story of a British Super-Agent in World War II HAMISH MACGIBBON A gripping tale of World War II espionage A few years before he died, James MacGibbon confessed to his close family that he had spied for the Soviet Union during World War II. At the end of the war, MI5 suspected him of espionage and interrogated him but he did not confess. Nevertheless, they kept James, his wife Jean and their young family under close surveillance for a number of years, regularly intercepting their mail and recording their telephone conversations. Only after James’s death did the true significance of what he might have revealed become clear – in his wartime office role, James had access to the plans for Operation Overlord, D-Day. In this book, James’s son Hamish tells the story of his parents, their interaction with the Communist party and their flirtation with wartime espionage. It is a original portrait of two very ordinary people caught up in the extraordinary events of World War Two and the Cold War.

The Untold Story of the Gay Men Who Served in Two World Wars STEPHEN BOURNE Britain’s homosexual war heroes rendered vividly through unseen photographs and their own words In this astonishing new history of wartime Britain, Stephen Bourne unearths the fascinating stories of the gay men who served in the armed forces and on the Home Front. It brings to light the great and previously unrecognised contribution they made to the war effort. Fighting Proud weaves together the remarkable lives of these men, from RAF hero Ian Gleed – a Flying Ace twice honoured for bravery by King George VI – to the infantry officers serving in the trenches on the Western Front in World War I – many of whom led the charges into machine-gun fire only to find themselves court marshalled after the war for indecent behaviour.

A FORGOTTEN MAN

NEW

The Life and Death of John Lodwick GEOFFREY ELLIOTT New life of one of the great forgotten novelists of the early twentieth century John Lodwick (1916-1959) was one of the great novelists of the early twentieth century. Yet his novels, and indeed his own extraordinary life story, have been virtually lost to the mists of time. Geoffrey Elliott here, for the first time, pieces together Lodwick’s eventful life, from his youth in Ireland, to his wartime experiences in the SOE and Special Boat Service, his subsequent literary career and his untimely death in a car crash in Spain at the age of just 43. Initially acclaimed by Somerset Maugham and Anthony Burgess, soon after his death Lodwick’s novels fell out of fashion and they have largely remained out-of-print since. Elliott makes the case for a revival in the fortunes of this singular English novelist, in a biography which sheds new light on the early twentieth century literary scene, the surrealist art world and the real-life experiences of World War II.

TALLEYRAND IN LONDON

NEW

The Master Diplomat’s Last Mission LINDA KELLY The sparkling true story of France’s greatest diplomat in eighteenth-century high society The arrival of Charles-Maurice, Prince de Talleyrand-Périgord, as French ambassador in London in September 1830, was regarded as a great event by the British government. Talleyrand, the best-known diplomat in Europe, had emerged from retirement at the age of 76 to lend his support to the new monarchy and to confirm its acceptance by the other European powers. Few people had aroused more controversy; but he was greeted as a celebrity in London, where the July Revolution – foreshadowing Britain’s own Reform Bill – had been hugely popular.

February 2017 256 pages 226 x 155mm Hardback £25 9781784537814 26 b&w illustrations, 1 map I.B.Tauris

Talleyrand had arrived in London at a perilous moment. Revolution had broken out in Belgium, where the Belgians demanded independence from Holland. Russia, Austria and Prussia threatened war to restore the status quo. It was largely thanks to Talleyrand’s diplomatic skills and his close collaboration with the British that the creation of Belgium as a constitutional monarchy was peacefully achieved. Talleyrand’s four years in London were the last and, in his own opinion, the most important of his diplomatic career. Linda Kelly’s sparkling narrative provides a fascinating picture of one of Europe’s greatest statesmen as he appeared to English eyes. Linda Kelly’s books include Holland House (2015) and Ireland’s Minstrel (2006; both I.B.Tauris). She has written for The Washington Post, the New York Times, the Times Literary Supplement and numerous other publications, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and of the Wordsworth Trust.

CROMWELL AT WAR

NEW

The Lord General and His Military Revolution MARTYN BENNETT Major new biography of one of the most important military figures in British history Oliver Cromwell was arguably the most significant political figure in the early modern history of the British Isles. Yet he was also a military leader, with significant battlefield victories to his credit. Martyn Bennett here provides the first military biography of Cromwell in the context of the seventeenth century Military Revolution. After commanding a small troop in 1643 and, without prior military experience, Cromwell rose to lead the cavalry regiments of the Eastern Association Army and the New Model Army to final victory at Worcester in 1651 and sealed the victory of the Parliamentary forces in Ireland and Scotland, becoming Lord General in 1650. Martyn Bennett analyses Cromwell’s military talents and generalship, in addition to his well-attested powerful and even brutal discipline and religious fervour. He examines the controversial Irish campaigns as well as modern accusations of genocide. In providing new perspectives on Cromwell’s military career, Bennett adds to our understanding of England’s only nonroyal head of state.

The Men Who Fought For Leros JULIE PEAKMAN First-hand accounts of the fight for Leros, the most devastating battle of the Dodecanese campaign In September 1943, at the height of World War II, the Aegean island of Leros became the site of the most pivotal battle of the Dodecanese campaign as the British tried, in vain, to retain control of the island. Over the course of two short months – from 15 September 1943 to 17 November 1943 – almost 1500 men lost their lives and hundreds more ended up in Prisoner-of-War camps. In this book, Julie Peakman, a modern-day resident of Leros, brings to life the story of the men caught up in the battle based on first-hand interviews and written accounts including diaries, letters and journals. She tells of the preparations of the soldiers leading up to the battle, the desperate hand-to-hand fighting, and the suffering endured from continual bombings. She also shows the extent of the men’s despair at the allied surrender, the many subsequent daring escapes as well as the terrible years of incarceration for those who were captured and imprisoned. Many of the heart-rending accounts of the battle are told here for the first time, providing a unique eyewitness take on this forgotten corner of World War II.

THE RIVIERA AT WAR

NEW

World War II on the Côte d’Azur GEORGE G. KUNDAHL First complete history of World War II in the South of France During World War II three distinct forces opposed the Allies – Germany, Italy, and Japan. Few areas of the world experienced domination by more than a single one of these, but southeastern France – the region popularly known as the Riviera or Côte d’Azur – was one. Not only did inhabitants suffer through Italian Fascism and German Nazism but also under a third hardship at times even more oppressive – the rule of Vichy France. Following a nine-month prelude, the reality of World War II burst onto the Riviera in June 1940 when the region had to defend itself against the Italian army and ended in April 1945 with a battle against German and Italian forces in April 1945, a period longer than any other part of France. In this book, George G. Kundahl tells for the first time the full story of World War II on the French Riviera. Featuring previously unseen sources and photographs, this will be essential reading for anyone interested in wartime France.

LLOYD GEORGE

NEW

Statesman or Scoundrel RICHARD WILKINSON New biography of one of the most talented, yet flawed, British Prime Ministers David Lloyd George left a profound political legacy, despite being described by the wife of his successor, Herbert Asquith, as a ‘gambler without foresight’. He is, of course, best known as the Prime Minister who led Britain to victory in World War I, but his contribution to domestic politics was similarly impressive. As Chancellor of the Exchequer he introduced pensions and national insurance against sickness and unemployment, while as Prime Minister he extended democracy by giving votes to women. Yet Lloyd George was compromised by his flaws as a human being. Vain, cruel, capricious and dishonest, at times his notoriously corrupt nature threatened to damage the British political system. Providing a unique new perspective on one of the most phenomenally talented – but also one of the most phenomenally flawed – of British Prime Ministers, this book will be essential reading for anyone interested in modern British politics and history.

CAPTAIN GILL’S WALKING STICK

NEW

The True Story of the Sinai Murders SAUL KELLY One of the most mysterious crimes of the Victorian Era The sale at auction in Edinburgh in 2010 of an old walking stick belonging to a British officer, Captain Gill, shed new light on one of the mysterious crimes of the Victorian era. Captain William Gill and his companions, the noted Arabist Professor Edward Palmer of Cambridge University and a young naval lieutenant, Harold Charrington, were killed in an ambush by Bedouin in the Sinai Desert in 1883. The trio had been tasked with informal diplomacy in the region, specifically to prevent the Arab sheikhs from joining the Egyptian rebels and to secure their non-interference with the Suez Canal. The gruesome murders shocked late-Victorian Britain, and led to pressure from the Queen, Parliament and the Press for the British government to launch a manhunt for the killers in a vast desert area, with mountainous terrain. This book traces the story behind the murder of the three men, uncovering the reason for their journey to the desert, the story of the murder itself as well as the backlash back home in England. It shines light on a fascinating, forgotten crime, as well as on early intelligence operations in the Middle East.

THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

GEOFFREY SWAIN New history of the revolution that changed the course of a century and gave rise to the Soviet Union In 1917 revolutionary fervour swept through Russia, ending centuries of imperial rule and instigating political and social changes that would lead to the formation of the Soviet Union. Arising out of proletariat discontent with the Tsarist autocracy and Lenin’s proclaimed version of a Marxist ideology, the revolutionary period saw a complete overhaul of Russian politics and society and led directly to the ensuing civil war. The Soviet Union eventually became the world’s first Communist state and the events of 1917 proved to be one of the turning-points in world history, setting in motion a chain of events which would change the entire course of the twentieth century. Geoffrey Swain provides a concise yet thorough overview of the revolution and the path to civil war. By looking, with fresh perspectives, on the causes of the revolution, as well as the international response, Swain provides a new interpretation of the events of 1917, published to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the revolution.

MEDIEVAL CHRISTIANITY

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

G.R. EVANS An essential introduction to religion in the Middle Ages What did people really believe in the Middle Ages? Much of our sense of the medieval period has come down to us from the writings of the learned: the abbots, priors, magnates, scholastic theologians and others who between them, and across Christendom, controlled the machinery of church and state. For G R Evans too much emphasis has been placed on a governing elite and too little on those – the great mass of the semi-literate and illiterate, and the emergent middle classes – who stood outside the innermost circles of ecclesiastical power, privilege and education. Her book finally gives proper weight to the neglected literature of demotic religion: the lives of saints; writings by those – including lay women – who had mystical experiences; and lively texts containing stories for popular edification. Ranging widely, from the fall of Rome to the ideas of the Reformation, the author addresses vital topics like the appeal of monasticism, the lure of the Crusades, the rise of the friars and the acute crisis of heresy. As Evans reveals, medieval Christianity was shaped above all by its promise of salvation or eternal perdition.

THE PHOENICIANS

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

MARK WOOLMER

New perspectives on the mysteries and paradoxes of Phoenician civilisation and culture The Phoenicians present a tantalising face to the ancient historian. Latin sources suggest they once had an extensive literature of history, law, philosophy and religion; but all now is lost. Offering new insights based on recent archaeological discoveries in their heartland of modern-day Lebanon, Mark Woolmer presents a fresh appraisal of this fascinating, yet elusive, Semitic people. Discussing material culture, language and alphabet, religion (including sacred prostitution of women and boys to the goddess Astarte), funerary custom and trade and expansion into the Punic west, he explores Phoenicia in all its paradoxical complexity. Viewed in antiquity as sage scribes and intrepid mariners who pushed back the boundaries of the known world, and as skilled engineers who built monumental harbour cities like Tyre and Sidon, the Phoenicians were also considered (especially by their rivals, the Romans) to be profiteers cruelly trading in human lives. The author shows them above all to have been masters of the sea: this was a civilisation that circumnavigated Africa two thousand years before Vasco da Gama did it in 1498.

JOHN BRIGHT

Statesman, Orator, Agitator

NEW PAPERBACK EDITION

BILL CASH John Bright was one of the greatest British statesmen of the nineteenth century. In a series of Punch cartoons in 1878, Bright featured alongside Disraeli and Gladstone as among the most influential politicians of the age. However, his profound contribution to British politics and society has been virtually forgotten in the modern world. Bright played a critical role in many of the most important political movements of the Victorian era, from the repeal of the Corn Laws to Home Rule. His testimonial for Abraham Lincoln’s re-election was found in the President’s pocket on his assassination. Fiercely independent, he eventually split from the Liberal Party over Home Rule, becoming a Liberal Unionist. In this new biography, the first for over 30 years, Bill Cash provides an incisive and engaging portrait of a man who influenced the politics of his generation more than virtually any other, with important implications for the present day. Bill Cash is the Member of Parliament for Stone. He was educated at Stonyhurst College and Lincoln College, Oxford. June 2017 360 pages 216 x 134mm Paperback 9781784539757 £14.99

ENVER HOXHA

The Iron Fist of Albania

NEW PAPERBACK EDITION

BLENDI FEVZIU, EDITED BY ROBERT ELSIE TRANSLATED BY MAJLINDA NISHKU Stalinism came to an end in most of Europe with the death of Stalin in 1953. However, in one country – Albania – Stalinism survived virtually unscathed until 1990. The regime that the Albanian dictator Enver Hoxha led from 1944 until his death in 1985 was incomparably severe. Such was the reign of terror that no audible voice of opposition or dissent ever arose in the Balkan state and Albania became isolated from the rest of the world and utterly inward-looking. Three decades after his death, the spectre of Hoxha still lingers over the country, yet many people – inside and outside Albania – know little about the man who ruled the country with an iron fist for so many decades. This book provides the first biography of Hoxha available in English. Blendi Fevziu is a journalist, based in Tirana. He was the cofounder of the RD (Democratic Renaissance) newspaper. Majlinda Nishku is a translator who has taught at the Department of English Language and Literature at the University of Tirana. June 2017 312 pages 226 x 155mm Paperback 9781784539702 £12.99

THE LANCASHIRE WITCHES

NEW PAPERBACK EDITION

A Chronicle of Sorcery and Death on Pendle Hill PHILIP C. ALMOND An extraordinary account of England’s most notorious witch trial In the febrile religious and political climate of late sixteenthcentury England, when the grip of the Reformation was as yet fragile and insecure, and underground papism still perceived to be rife, Lancashire was felt by the Protestant authorities to be a sinister corner of superstition, lawlessness and popery. And it was around Pendle Hill, a sombre ridge that looms over the intersecting pastures, meadows and moorland of the Ribble Valley, that their suspicions took infamous shape. The arraignment of the Lancashire witches in the assizes of Lancaster during 1612 is England’s most notorious witch trial. In this remarkable and authoritative treatment, published to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the case of the Lancashire witches, Philip C Almond evokes all the fear, drama and paranoia of those volatile times: the bleak story of the storm over Pendle.

RADICAL PROPHET

NEW

The Mystics, Subversives and Visionaries Who Strove For Heaven on Earth CHRISTOPHER ROWLAND A powerful and passionately argued rediscovery of what Christianity really means Christianity began with the conviction that the old order was finished. The mysterious, elusive and charismatic figure of Jesus proclaimed that a new era, the Kingdom of God, was dawning. Yet despite its success, and the conversion of the empire which had executed its founder, the religion he inspired was soon domesticated, its counter-cultural radicalism tamed, as the Church attempted to control both its doctrines and its followers. Christopher Rowland shows that this was never the whole story. At the margins, around the edges, sometimes off the religious map, the apocalyptic flame of the New Testament continued to burn. In 1649 the Diggers occupied St George’s Hill to put the egalitarianism of Christ into practice. ‘You must break these men or they will break you’, Oliver Cromwell declared of the ‘lunaticks’. This book argues that such revolutionaries had divined the true intent of the enigma who threw over the tables of the money-changers: to summon a new epoch – iconoclastic, uncomfortable and otherworldly. It gives full weight to a remarkable strain of radical religion that simply refuses to die.

Polemics, Caricatures & Satire SLAVS & TATARS An illustrated collection of cartoons from one of the most influential periodicals in the Muslim world Published between 1906 and 1930, Molla Nasreddin was a satirical Azeri periodical edited by Jalil Mammadguluzadeh and named after the legendary Sufi wise man-cum-fool of the Middle Ages. With an acerbic sense of humour and realist illustrations, Molla Nasreddin attacked the hypocrisy of the Muslim clergy, the colonial policies of European nations, and later the United States, towards the rest of the world and the corruption of local elites, while at the same time arguing for Westernisation, educational reform and equal rights for women. The publication was an instant success and became one of the most influential publications of its kind and was read across the Muslim world. Slavs and Tatars has brought together this collection of sketches, caricatures and satirical writings from Molla Nasreddin, in the process revealing an unusual manifestation of nationalism in the Caucasus and its surrounding regions.

BADIOU REFRAMED

NEW

ALEX LING He has been regarded with suspicion by some, as an anti-postmodernist who dared to write about unfashionable concepts such as truth and meaning. But in recent years, the philosopher Alain Badiou has risen in prominence, pioneering new ways to produce, conceptualise and discover art. Badiou Reframed is an original book about an original thinker which applies - for the first time - Badiou’s philosophy to the visual arts. The three central concepts of this philosophy – ‘being and appearing’, ‘event and subject’ and ‘truth and ethics’ – are elucidated through detailed analysis of a range of visual artworks, including the films of Jean-Luc Godard, Marcel Duchamp’s readymades and the cubist works of Picasso and Braque. In focusing on Badiou’s critical relationship with the visual arts, Alex Ling reinterprets and represents not only the man, but art itself. Alex Ling is Research Lecturer in Communication and Media Studies at Western Sydney University. His research interests are in film theory and the intersections between art, science and philosophy, focusing on the work of Alain Badiou, Jacques Lacan, Jacques Rancière and Gilles Deleuze. He is the author of Badiou and Cinema (Edinburgh University Press, 2011) and editor and translator (with A.J. Bartlett) of Mathematics of the Transcendental (Bloomsbury, 2014).

YOUNG LOTHAR An Underground Fugitive in Nazi Berlin LARRY ORBACH & VIVIEN ORBACH-SMITH A singular true story of hope amidst the darkness of Hitler’s Berlin Lothar Orbach, the youngest son of a German Jewish family, was just 14 when the Nazis began rounding up Berlin’s Jews. His promising education was aborted; his close-knit family splintered. When the Gestapo came for Orbach’s mother on Christmas Eve 1942, they escaped with false papers; his mother found sanctuary with a family of Communists and Orbach – under the assumed identity of Gerhard Peters – entered Berlin’s underworld of ‘divers’. He scraped a living by hustling pool, cheating in poker and stealing – fighting, literally, to stay alive. Outwardly he became a cagey amoral street thug, inwardly he was a sensitive, romantic boy, devoted son and increasingly religious Jew, clinging to his humanity. In the end, he was betrayed and sent to Auschwitz, on the last transport, in 1944. This singular coming-of-age story of life in the Berlin underground during World War II is, in essence, a story of hope, even happiness, in the very heart of darkness.

ATHOS The Holy Mountain SYDNEY LOCH First worldwide paperback edition of this unrivalled portrait of Mount Athos Athos, the Holy Mountain of Greece, is one of the most mysterious places in the world. A rugged pyramid that rises up from the Aegean Sea, this mountain is wreathed in myth, legend and ancient traditions that to this day remain largely hidden from view. The heart of Athos started to beat at the dawn of Christianity and its community lays claim to being the oldest democracy in the world. An entirely autonomous region of the Hellenic Republic, it is home to twenty Eastern Orthodox monasteries that cling to its rocky flanks. No women are allowed to set foot upon the peninsula and the monks who inhabit this isolated place still use the Julian calendar, living on ‘Byzantine Time’, where each day starts at sunset. While living in the mountain’s shadow, in Ouranopolis, Sydney Loch spent many years exploring Athos, the result of which is an enthralling and vivid portrait of the Holy Mountain.

After the war, they moved to Thessaloniki, where Loch died in 1955.

Following the death of their founder Sergei Diaghilev in 1929, the company split into two separate groups – the Ballets Russes de Colonel de Basil and the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. In the mid-twentieth century – during the tumultuous years of World War II and the Cold War – the Ballets Russes companies kept the spirit and traditions of Russian ballet alive in the West, touring extensively in America, Europe and Australia. This groundbreaking new book uncovers previously unseen conversations with the leading protagonists of the companies, primarily with the dancers themselves, but also with choreographers, instructors and critics. Through the dancers’ own words, Michael Meylac reveals what life was really like for the stars of the Ballets Russes and provides fascinating new insights into some of the most important dance events of the twentieth century – including Nureyev’s defection to the West.

THE KINGDOM OF WOMEN

NEW

Life, Love and Death in China’s Hidden Mountains CHOO WAIHONG A vibrant glimpse into a way of life that teeters on the knife-edge of extinction The Mosuo tribe is one of the last matriarchal societies in the world. In a valley on the border of Yunnan and Sichuan, in a place known as the ‘Kingdom of Women’, 40,000 Mosuo people live in a series of villages. Here, women make the major decisions, control household finances, have rightful ownership of land and property as well as full rights to the children born. Most notably, the Mosuo practice something called ‘walking marriage’ where, from the age of 13, women can choose to take lovers – as many or as few as they wish – from men within the tribe.

GREECE

A Literary Guide for Travellers MICHAEL CARROLL An engaging portrait of the unparalleled literary history of Greece There is virtually nothing in the modern world which does not have its origins in Greece, most notably language and literature. As Shelley once said, ‘We are all Greeks’. This small, rugged, sea-girt country has the longest written history in Europe. Her myths and legends, so deeply embedded in Western consciousness, and her sublime landscapes, so infused with history, have been muse for writers, artists and travellers for millennia. Travelling from Athens to the scattered islands of the Ionian and Aegean seas, the words of literary titans echo through the centuries: from Homer and Plato to Byron, Flaubert and Twain; Henry Miller to John Fowles; the Durrells to Patrick Leigh Fermor and Cavafy, Kazantzakis and Seferis. Their luminous portraits of Greece – poignant, provocative, always entertaining – enrich our own experiences of the country and shed light on a dramatic and often tragic past.

A Calabrian Childhood GRAZIA IETTO GILLIES A compelling childhood memoir of war, love and food in the heart of Calabria In 1939 a girl was born in the wild Aspromonte mountains of Calabria, a land haunted by turbulent history, suffused with ancient tradition and weighed down by poverty and the everpresent danger of the mafia. As the tremors of World War II shake the heart of Calabria, so the little girl’s childhood unfolds. Her life is simple, revolving around school, friendship, family. At its very heart is the kitchen where the dramas and joys of family life are played out and where her mother, Giulia, creates the food around which life revolves. In this rich and heartfelt memoir, Grazia Ietto-Gillies remembers her youth in Calabria, from childhood sickness to her eccentric extended family; from religious festivals to the constant struggle with poverty and a brush with the mafia. Now, sixty years after she first left Calabria, she realises that it has defined everything she has ever done; that she has never really left the mountains of her childhood.

GROWING UP WITH THE IMPRESSIONISTS

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

The Diary of Julie Manet JULIE MANET TRANSLATED AND EDITED BY JANE ROBERTS Inside the extraordinary world of the Impressionists Julie Manet, the daughter of Édouard Manet and the most famous female Impressionist artist, Berthe Morisot, was born in Paris on 14th November 1878 into a wealthy and cultured milieu at the height of the Impressionist era. Many young girls still confide their inner thoughts to diaries and it is hardly surprising that, with her mother giving all her encouragement, Julie would prove to be no exception to the rule. At the age of ten, Julie began writing her ‘memoirs’ but it wasn’t until August 1893, at fourteen, that Julie began her diary in earnest: no neat leather-bound volume with lock and key but just untidy notes scribbled in old exercise books, often in pencil, the presentation as spontaneous as its contents. Her extraordinary diary – newly translated here by an expert of Impressionism – reveals a vivid depiction of a vital period in France’s cultural history seen through the youthful and precocious eyes of the youngest member of what was surely the most prominent artistic families of the time.

BABUSHKA’S JOURNEY

NEW

The Dark Road to Stalin’s Wartime Camps MARCEL KRUEGER An evocative blend of past and present on the road to Stalin’s labour camps This is the story of a grandmother, and what happened to her and to Eastern Europe in World War II. Following the tracks of his grandmother Cilly, or ‘Babushka’, into her vanished homeland of East Prussia and to the labour camps of the Soviet Union, Marcel Krueger has interwoven contemporary landscape and family history into an poignant and evocative travel memoir. Babushka’s Journey is the record of his grandmother’s journey from the snow-covered battlefields of East Prussia in January 1945 to the Soviet labour camps in the Urals, where she spent five years before returning to Germany. Chasing the sights, sounds and voices of past and present along this route, the author describes two different journeys that follow the same path. As he stumbles through the bars of present-day Poland and dreams on the bunk beds of the Trans-Siberian railway, Krueger forges an authentic retelling of Cilly’s tragic yet hopeful story, discovering that her journey reflects tens of thousands of similar personal histories, which continue to haunt Germany, Poland and Russia today.

A Journey Through the Supernatural Landscapes of the British Isles CAROLYNE LARRINGTON A captivating mystical bestiary from a steward of modern folklore Beyond its housing estates and identikit high streets there is another Britain. This is the Britain of mist-drenched forests and unpredictable sea-frets: of wraith-like fog banks, druidic mistletoe and peculiar creatures that lurk, half-unseen, in the undergrowth, tantalising and teasing just at the periphery of human vision. In this sparkling new history, Carolyne Larrington explores the diverse ways in which a myriad of fantastical beings has moulded the nation’s cultural history. Fairies, elves and goblins here tread purposefully, sometimes malignly, over an eerie landscape that also conceals brownies, selkies, trows, knockers, boggarts, land-wights, Jack o’Lanterns, Barguests, the sinister Nuckleavee and Black Shuck: terrifying hell-hound of the Norfolk coast with eyes of burning coal. This is a book that will captivate all those who long for the wild places: the mountains and chasms where giants lie in wait.

The Ancient World of Game of Thrones AYELET HAIMSON LUSHKOV ‘There are things to be learned even from the dead’ If the Middle Ages form the present-day backdrop to the continents of Westeros and Essos, then antiquity is their resonant past. In this essential companion to the hit TV show, Game of Thrones, Ayelet Haimson Lushkov explores the echoes, from the Summer Islands to Storm’s End, of a rich antique history. She discusses, for example, the convergence of ancient Rome and the reach, scope and might of the Valyrian Freehold. She shows how the wanderings of Tyrion Lannister replay the journeys of Odysseus and Aeneas. She suggests that the War of the Five Kings resembles the War of the Four Emperors (68–69 AD). And she demonstrates just how the Wall and the Wildlings advancing on it connect with Hadrian’s bulwark against fierce tribes of Picts. This book reveals the remarkable extent to which the entire Game of Thrones universe is animated by its ancient past.

DANCING WITH THE DOCTOR

Dimensions of Gender in the Doctor Who Universe LORNA JOWETT The world won’t end because the Doctor dances Widespread conversations and criticisms continue about the ways in which Doctor Who represents gender. Dancing with the Doctor, the first book on the Doctor Who universe to take gender as its focus, examines both the successful revival of the series since 2005 and its spin-off series, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures. Lorna Jowett delves into the distinctive stories and characters, including the Doctors themselves, their female and male companions, Captain Jack Harkness, Missy, Sarah Jane and her young comrades. She considers the showrunners, directors, producers and writers and the problems this flagship science fiction series has had in offering alternative gender models. Constructions of masculinity, the author function, and how gender intersects with the other facets of identity, race, ethnicity and age, are just some of the areas explored in this accessible and wide-ranging re-view of these hotly debated elements of the successful BBC franchise.

SOFIA COPPOLA

A Cinema of Girlhood FIONA HANDYSIDE First in-depth look at one of Hollywood’s unique cinematic visionaries Sofia Coppola is widely regarded as one of the most astute, provocative and visionary directors in the contemporary film industry. She has received numerous accolades including an Academy Award and two Golden Globes, and in 2004 became the first ever American woman to be nominated for a Best Director Oscar. From The Virgin Suicides to The Bling Ring, her work carves out new spaces for the expression of female subjectivity that embraces rather than rejects femininity. Fiona Handyside here considers the careful counter-balance of vulnerability with the possibilities and pleasures of being female in Coppola’s films – albeit for the white and the privileged – through their recurrent themes of girlhood, fame, power, sex and celebrity. Chapters reveal a post-feminist aesthetic that offers sustained, intimate engagements with female characters. These characters inhabit luminous worlds of girlish adornments, light and sparkle and yet find homes in unexpected places from hotels to swimming pools, palaces to strip clubs: resisting stereotypes and the ordinary. In this original study, Handyside gives due attention to a rare female auteur.

Science Fiction Film and Television in the Digital Age

PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

SEAN REDMOND An eye-opening account which reveals the impact of science fiction on the digital age Science fiction is the ideal genre for exploring the concerns of the present whilst reflecting on the possibilities of the future. But what can it tell us about present and future by setting these two timeframes together? Sean Redmond examines the issues and themes that are found across a range of contemporary science fiction films and television programmes, revealing the profound effects the digital age has had on our social lives. Through narratives that feature the ‘post-human’, genetic engineering and cloning, surveillance and data mining, space and time travel, artificial intelligence, online dating cultures and visions of catastrophe, they portray a world in which the material, and the stable, are being lost to the ever-more volatile and ephemeral idea of ‘liquid space’. Redmond examines a wide selection of popular films and TV series such as Gravity, Under the Skin, The Lobster, Children of Men and Doctor Who, to show how traditional values are being erased in favour of a new liquid modernity. This book is an illuminating account of the digital age through the world of science fiction, allowing a new understanding of our complex modern reality.

REBUILDING BABEL

NEW

Modern Architecture and Internationalism MARK CRINSON First history of modernist architecture and its visionary internationalist goals Much of modernist architecture was inspired by the emergence of internationalism: the political movement that aimed to achieve world peace, justice and unity through global collaboration. Mark Crinson here shows how the ideals behind the Tower of Babel – built, as the story goes, by people of one language and with one utopian goal – were effectively adapted by internationalist architecture style and practice in the modern period. Focusing particularly on the points of convergence between modernist and internationalist trends in the 1920s, and again in the immediate post-war years, he underlines how such architecture utilised a cooperative community of builders and a common language of forms. The ‘International Style’ was one manifestation of this new way of thinking, but Crinson shows how the aims of modernist architecture frequently engaged with the substance of an internationalist mindset in addition to sharing surface similarities.

The Art and Civilization of Central Asia MASSIMO VIDALE Revealing the brilliant Bronze Age cultures of Central Asia The great river civilisation of the Oxus is one of the forgotten jewels of the ancient world. In history, this grand arterial 1500-mile waterway was always seen as the natural frontier between the northern provinces of the Iranian empires and the outer Turanian lands. It was for centuries central to Achaemenid and later Persian power. But, as the author shows, it has a prehistory which goes very much further back: and a succession of skilled yet still elusive Bronze Age cultures flourished here well before the rise of Cyrus the Great in the 6th century BCE. This richly illustrated book explores the fascinating history, art and archaeology of the region, including its primal trade in silk and foodstuffs; the mineral wealth of the Oxus basin; its exotic myths and beliefs; and the converging tribes and peoples which led to a new stability, economic growth and urbanism.

MARKOWITZ The sumptuousness and grandeur of Nubian gold jewellery analysed and illustrated for the first time The fabled land of Nubia, whose very name means ‘gold’ in ancient Egyptian, was famous in ancient times for its supplies of precious metal, exotic material, and intricate craftsmanship. Many of the adornments made in Nubia are masterpieces of the jeweller’s art - marvels of design and construction rivalling, and often surpassing, adornments made in Egypt and the rest of the ancient Mediterranean world. Richly illustrated with beautiful photographs of these exquisite items, many of them never before published, Nubian Gold also places the jewellery within the cultural contexts in which it was manufactured and employed. It tells the story not only of the treasures themselves but of the exciting tales of their discovery and the rich background of the exotic and remote civilisations that produced them.

THE OPEN DOOR

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

A Novel LATIFA AL-ZAYYAT TRANSLATED BY MARILYN BOOTH ‘Not only a great novel, but a literary landmark that shaped our consciousness.’ — Abdel Moneim Tallima Published in 1960, The Open Door was very bold for its time in exploring a middle-class Egyptian girl’s coming of sexual and political age, in the context of the Egyptian nationalist movement preceding the 1952 revolution. The novel traces the pressures on young women and young men of that time and class as they seek to free themselves of family control and social expectations. Young Layla and her brother become involved in the student activism of the 1940s and early 1950s and in the popular resistance to continued imperialist rule; the story culminates in the 1956 Suez Crisis, when Gamal Abd al-Nasser’s nationalisation of the Canal led to a British, French, and Israeli invasion. Not only daring in her themes, Latifa al-Zayyat was also bold in her use of colloquial Arabic, and the novel contains some of the liveliest dialogue in modern Arabic literature.

March 2017 384 pages 205 x 130mm Paperback £9.99 9789774168277 Hoopoe

Latifa al-Zayyat (1923–96) struggled all her life to uphold just causes - national integrity, the welfare of the poor, human rights, freedom of expression, and the rejection of all forms of imperialist hegemony. As a professor of English literature at Ain Shams University, her critical output was no less prolific than her creative writing, but the creative, academic, and political strands of her personality were interwoven. The Open Door is generally recognised as her magnum opus.

MENORAHS AND MINARETS

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

A Novel KAMAL RUHAYYIM TRANSLATED BY SARAH ENANY A rare insight into Jewish Egyptian history The son of a mixed Jewish/Muslim family returns to Egypt after ten years in Paris. What he finds is a society in flux, yet still stifled by convention. As his sense of alienation increases, Galal searches for a way to put down roots in a society where he feels he no longer truly belongs, as he struggles with his confused relationships with his extended family: Jewish cosmopolitan businessmen on one side and Muslim rural farmers on the other. Ruhayyim paints an uncompromising portrait of the rigid traditions, passed on from generation to generation, that reach into the most intimate areas of peoples’ lives, as family elders curb or otherwise circumscribe how the younger generation lives and loves.
