GENERATION M

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

Young Muslims Changing the World SHELINA JANMOHAMED What does it mean to be young and Muslim today? There is a segment of the world’s 1.8 billion Muslims that is more influential than any other, and will shape not just the future generations of Muslims, but also the world around them: meet ‘Generation M’. Tech-savvy and self-empowered, Generation M believe their identity encompasses both faith and modernity. Shelina Janmohamed, award-winning author and leading voice on Muslim youth, investigates this growing cultural phenomenon, at a time when understanding the mindset of young Muslims, and what drives them, is critical. Exploring fashion magazines, social networking and everyday consumer choices, Generation M shows how this dynamic section of our society is not only adapting to Western consumerism, but reclaiming it as its own. From the ‘Mipsters’ to the ‘Haloodies’, Halal internet dating to Muslim boy bands, Generation M are making their mark. It’s time to get hijabilicious!

THE ORIGINS OF ISIS

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

The Collapse of Nations and Revolution in the Middle East SIMON MABON & STEPHEN ROYLE The real causes for the emergence of ISIS are revealed in this startling new book by two leading experts on the region The rapid expansion of ISIS and its swathe of territorial gains across the Middle East have been headline news since 2013. Yet much media attention and analysis has been focused on the military exploits, brutal tactics and radicalisation methods employed by the group. While ISIS remains a relatively new phenomenon, it is important to consider the historical and local dynamics that have shaped the emergence of the group in the past decade. In this book Simon Mabon and Stephen Royle provide a comprehensive overview of the roots, tactics and ideology of the group, exploring the interactions of the various participants involved in the formative stages of ISIS. Based on original scholarly sources and first-hand research in the region, this book provides an authoritative and closely analysed look at the emergence of one of the defining forces of the early twenty-first century.

RADICALIZED

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

The New Generation of Jihadis and the Threat to the West PETER R. NEUMANN Leading security commentator reveals the true extent of the terrorist threat that lives among us The attacks in Paris in January and November 2015 heralded the beginning of a new wave of terrorism – one rooted in the ongoing conflict in Syria and Iraq. As ISIS seeks to expand its reach in the Middle East, its territory serves as a base for training and operations for a new generation of jihadis. Thousands of young people from the West, primarily from Europe, have travelled to join ISIS, re-emerging as hardened fighters with military training and a network of international contacts. Many of them have now returned to their homelands, where it is feared they are planning a new series of brutal attacks. Peter R. Neumann here explains the phenomenon of the ‘new jihadis’, and shows why the threat of terrorism in the West is greater than ever before. Based on interviews and previously unseen material, Neumann provides an essential introduction to one of the greatest crises of our time.

UNDER THE SHADOW

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

Rage and Revolution in Modern Turkey KAYA GENÇ An insight into a divided society at the crossroads of the Middle East Turkey stands at the crossroads of the Middle East – caught between the West, ISIS, Syria and Russia, and governed by an increasingly hard-line leader. Acclaimed writer Kaya Genç has been covering his country for the past decade. In Under the Shadow he meets activists from both sides of Turkey’s political divide: Gezi Park protestors who fought tear gas and batons to transform their country’s future, and supporters of Erdogan’s conservative vision who are no less passionate in their activism. While talking to Turkey’s angry young people Genç weaves in historical stories, visions and mythologies, showing how Turkey’s progressives and conservatives take their ideological roots from two political movements born in the Ottoman Empire, fuelled by a determination to make their country more democratic. He shows a divided society coming to terms with the twenty-first century, and in doing so, gets to the heart of the compelling conflicts between history and modernity in the Middle East.

THE GÜLEN MOVEMENT IN TURKEY

NEW

The Politics of Islam and Modernity CAROLINE TEE What is the Gülen Movement and why is Erdogan so convinced that the organisation was behind the failed military coup of 15th July 2016? The Gülen, or Hizmet, movement in Turkey was until recently the country’s most powerful and affluent religious organisation. At its head is the exiled Muslim preacher Fethullah Gülen, who leads from a gated compound in Pennsylvania, USA. The movement’s central tenet is that Muslims should engage positively with modernity, especially through mastering the sciences. At hundreds of Gülen-run schools and universities, not only in Turkey but also worldwide and particularly in the United States, instructors have cultivated the next generation of Muslim bankers, biologists, software engineers and entrepreneurs. In this groundbreaking study, Caroline Tee, an expert on the Gülen Movement, analyses the complex attitudes of Gülen and his followers towards secular modernity. Considered against the backdrop of Turkish politics, Gülenist engagement with modern science is revealed as a key source of the influence the movement has exerted.

GAZA UNDER HAMAS

NEW

From Islamic Democracy to Islamist Governance BJÖRN BRENNER The inside story of the first democratically elected radical Islamist government The landslide victory of Hamas to the Palestinian Legislative Council in 2006 marked the first time Islamists had ascended to power in the Arab world by democratic means. But did Hamas proceed to govern in the same democratic manner it had displayed during these elections? Gaza Under Hamas scrutinises the workings of the Hamas government, tracing how its actually governed on the ground. The analysis tells the story of an inexperienced but self-confident Hamas in government, that perceived itself to be working under the constant threat of a possible coup d’état. The book features interviews with a wide range of Palestinian political personalities in the Hamas government, military commanders, internal security personnel and members of the Qassam Brigades. Interviewees also included those whom Hamas leaders identified as local troublemakers and critics, such as youth dissidents and members of the Fatah party. Gaza Under Hamas reveals exactly what happens when ideology is translated into political action.

POWER STRUGGLES IN THE MIDDLE EAST

NEW

The Islamist Politics of Hizbullah and the Muslim Brotherhood EVA DINGEL Who are the Muslim Brotherhood and Hizbullah? What do the two movements – one Sunni and one Shi’a – have in common? Despite being classified by a number of countries as ‘terrorist’ organisations, both are in fact serious political players in the states in which they operate – Egypt and Lebanon. Both have, at various points, advocated pan-Islamism: the unity of Muslims under an Islamic state or caliphate, but, rather than considering them as extremist religious movements, Eva Dingel here studies them as players within the political process. She considers why, at certain points, they have chosen to play by the conventional political rules, while during other periods, they have applied different, more extreme, methods of political protest. Dingel’s comparative history of two of the most prominent political Islamist movements sheds light on the complex – and often misunderstood – interaction between Islam and politics in the Middle East. This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the changing dynamics of politics in the Islamic world.

TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY JIHAD Law, Society and Military Action

NEW PAPERBACK EDITION

ELISABETH KENDALL & EWAN STEIN The term ‘jihad’ has come to be used as a byword for fanaticism and Islam’s allegedly implacable hostility towards the West. But, like other religious and political concepts, jihad has multiple resonances and associations, its meaning shifting over time and from place to place. Jihad has referred to movements of internal reform, spiritual struggle and self-defence as much as to ‘holy war’. And among Muslim intellectuals, the meaning and significance of jihad remain subject to debate and controversy. With this in mind, Twenty-First Century Jihad examines the ways in which the concept of jihad has changed, from its roots in the Qur’an to its usage in current debate. This book explores familiar modern political angles, and touches on far less commonly analysed instances of jihad, incorporating issues of law, society, literature and military action. As this key concept is ever-more important for international politics and security studies, Twenty-First Century Jihad contains vital analysis for those researching the role of religion in the modern world. Elisabeth Kendall is Senior Research Fellow in Arabic and Islamic Studies, Oxford University. Ewan Stein is Lecturer in International Relations at the School of Social and Political Science at the University of Edinburgh. October 2016 376 pages 216 x 134mm Paperback 9781784536718 £14.99

THE FOG OF PEACE How to Prevent War

NEW PAPERBACK EDITION

GABRIELLE RIFKIND & GIANDOMENICO PICCO The world has become a much more dangerous place. Islamic State’s rise is the latest in a series of world events that have shaken the Middle East and the international order as we know it. Our news screens are full of shocking events taking place across the world, from the refugee crisis at Calais to the Turkish coup. Why does the world today seem so chaotic, so violent, so frightening? How to Prevent War shows how successive military interventions over the last twenty years have failed to increase our security. Leading international negotiators demonstrate here that we must ‘reset’ our thinking about the Middle East, try to understand why ordinary human beings resort to war, and why military intervention so often exacerbates the worst aspects of human behaviour. The book asks us to understand the mind of the enemy, and recognize the need to humanize conflict. From Iran, to Syria, to the boardrooms of the UN, this book shows how peace can be found, and what lessons we can draw for the future.

‘Stimulating and original’ – Independent Gabrielle Rifkind is the Director of the Middle East programme at Oxford Research Group. She is a psychotherapist and specialist in conflict resolution, immersed in the politics of the Middle East. Giandomenico Picco has worked for the UN for over 20 years and served as a negotiator on conflicts, focusing on Iran Iraq and Afghanistan.

QATAR

The Rise to Power and Influence

NEW 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. It is a fervent champion of the Palestinian cause, yet welcomes the Israeli Foreign Minister to present the Jewish state’s case in its capital, Doha. 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. He is also the author of The Almohads: The Rise of an Islamic Empire and Ibn Khaldun, Life and Times.

THE MISSION AND THE KINGDOM Wahhabi Power Behind the Saudi Throne

NEW PAPERBACK EDITION

DAVID COMMINS Wahhabism has been generating controversy since it first emerged in Arabia in the 18th century. In the wake of September 11th instant theories have emerged that try to root Osama Bin Laden’s attacks in Wahhabism. Muslim critics have dismissed this conservative interpretation of Islam that is the official creed of Saudi Arabia as an unorthodox innovation that manipulated a suggestible people to gain political influence. David Commins’ book questions this assumption. He examines the debate on the nature of Wahhabism, and offers original findings on its ascendance in Saudi Arabia and spread throughout other parts of the Muslim world such as Afghanistan and Pakistan. He also assesses the challenge that radical militants within Saudi Arabia pose to the region, and draws conclusions which will concern all those who follow events in the Kingdom. The Mission and the Kingdom is essential reading for anyone interested in the Middle East and Islamic radicalism today. David Commins is Professor of History at Dickinson College, Pennsylvania. He was a visiting scholar at the King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies in Riyadh. He is the author of Islamic Reform: Politics and Change in Late Ottoman Syria ( 1990) and Historical Dictionary of Syria (2004). September 2016 304 pages 216 x 135mm Paperback 9781784536824 £10.99

WHAT NEXT?

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

Britain’s Future in Europe PETER WILDING Where does Britain go from here? In 2016 forty years of uncertainty over Britain’s place in Europe ended with a decisive vote for Brexit in the EU referendum. What role will Britain now play in Europe and, indeed, the world? What will happen next? Peter Wilding offers an arresting answer, plotting out a new course for Britain’s troubled relationship with Europe. He channels the pride Britain draws from its heritage through the prejudice Britain has historically had against Europe, and proposes a new popular-based platform for British influence in Europe: ‘smart power’. Wilding identifies how British leaders from Pitt to Cameron have attempted to use exactly this ‘smart power’ in their approach to international diplomacy. He tells the story of their shared experiences in forging Churchill’s strategy – a long-term plan which put Britain at the heart of Europe and the Commonwealth and alongside the United States – and applies it to Britain today. This book will provide valuable new perspectives on the debate about what Britain does next after the Brexit vote.

THE RIGHT TO BE FORGOTTEN

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

Privacy and the Media in the Digital Age GEORGE BROCK Should we have the right to control information about ourselves online? Can the internet be a personal menace? The human race now creates, distributes and stores more information than at any other time in history. Servers store data which can be found on the world wide web years after it has ceased to be accurate or relevant to its original use. These developments have given rise to a movement promoting a ‘right to be forgotten’: an argument that freedom of expression should be balanced by a right to erase information which affects an individual, under certain conditions. This strand of thinking influenced a significant judgement delivered by the European Court of Justice in May 2014. As a result, the dominant internet search engine in Europe, Google, has been required to remove links to hundreds of thousands of pieces of information on application from individuals who considered their interests harmed. This book looks at the implications of this decision for free expression, journalism and information in the digital public sphere.

JOURNALISM IN AN AGE OF TERROR

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

Covering and Uncovering the Secret State JOHN LLOYD How have the Snowden/NSA revelations changed the way journalists and governments interact? The threat of terrorism and the increasing power of terrorist groups have prompted a rapid growth of the security services and changes in legislation permitting collection of communications data. This provides journalism with acute dilemmas. The media claims responsibility for holding power to account, yet cannot know more than superficial details about the newly empowered secret services. This book is the first to analyse, in the aftermath of the Snowden/NSA revelations, relations between two key institutions in the modern state: the intelligence services and the news media. It provides the answers to crucial questions including: how can power be held to account if one of the greatest state powers is secret? How far have the Snowden/NSA revelations damaged the activities of the secret services? And have governments lost all trust from journalists and the public?

Corruption in the West LAURENCE COCKCROFT & ANNE-CHRISTINE WEGENER Lifting the lid on the West’s battle with corporate, financial and political corruption How corrupt is the West? North America and Europe’s selfperception is one of high standards in public life. And yet, corruption is receiving ever greater attention in the American, Canadian and European press, with high-profile cases affecting both the corporate and political worlds. This book identifies the driving forces behind such cases, particularly the role of political finance, lobbying, the banking system and organized crime. It analyzes the sectors which are particularly prone to corruption, including sport, defense and pharmaceuticals. In the course of their investigation, the authors consider why anti-corruption legislation has not been more effective and why there is an increasing discrepancy between regulation and commercial and cultural practice. Are the US and Europe genuinely serious about fighting corruption and if so what measures will be taken to roll it back?

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.

THE WINCHESTER

NEW

Legend of the West LAURA TREVELYAN The story of the gun that settled the Wild West The Winchester rifle, the iconic gun made in New Haven, Connecticut, and sold in its hundreds of thousands around the world, mirrors American expansion at a key period in the young country’s history. The lethal repeating rifle became the defining image of America’s frontier – and was known amongst Native Americans as ‘the spirit gun’. It represented both the pioneering vigour and the brutal force which conquered the West. Laura Trevelyan explores the history of, and the family behind, this renowned representation of American power. The entrepreneurial drive of Oliver Winchester led the rifle to rapidly assume legendary status not long after its release in 1866, gaining endorsements from the likes of Buffalo Bill, Annie Oakley and President Teddy Roosevelt. This engaging history sheds light on the story and myth of an American legend.

American Icon IWAN MORGAN A major new biography of Ronald Reagan, based on previously unseen sources Ronald Reagan is one of the most important – and arguably most successful – presidents in modern American history. He is broadly credited with renewing American prosperity in the wake of the most miserable economic era since the 1930s, laying the foundations for Cold War victory and doing much to bring about the late twentieth century shift to the right in American politics. In this book, Iwan Morgan presents the first thoroughly researched biography of Reagan, based on original materials and first-hand interviews. He plots a chronological path through Reagan’s life beginning with his childhood and early years in Illinois, through his Hollywood career, his emergent Republicanism and his election as governor of California, before acceding to the presidency in 1981. In office, Morgan assesses Reagan’s economic and foreign policies, as well as his idealization of the constitution and his near-impeachment over the Iran-Contra affair.

GOTHAM RISING

New York in the 30s JULES STEWART FOREWORD BY AMOR TOWLES ‘To him, no matter what the season was, this was still a town that existed in black and white and pulsated to the great tunes of George Gershwin.’ – Isaac Davis (Woody Allen), Manhattan New York is often described as the greatest city in the world. Yet much of the iconic architecture and culture which so defines the city as we know it today – from the Empire State Building to the Pastrami sandwich – only came into being in the 1930s, in what was perhaps the most significant decade in the city’s 400-year history. After the roaring twenties, the catastrophic Wall Street Crash and ensuing Depression seemed to spell disaster for the vibrant city. Yet, in this era, New York underwent an architectural, economic, social and creative renaissance under the leadership of the charismatic mayor Fiorello La Guardia. After seizing power, he declared war on the mafia mobs running vast swathes of the city, attacked political corruption and kick-started the economy through a variety of construction and infrastructure projects. In weaving these stories together, Jules Stewart tells the story of an iconic city in a time of change.

ALICE IN WESTMINSTER

NEW

The Political Life of Alice Bacon RACHEL REEVES First biography of an iconic politician, whose influence far outweighed her fame Alice Bacon was one of the twentieth century’s most remarkable politicians. Born and raised in the Yorkshire town of Normanton, she defied the odds to be elected Labour MP for Leeds North East in the 1945 General Election. Famed in her home town for her unlikely love of sports cars, she was a much-respected, no-nonsense, hard-working representative for her beloved Yorkshire home in Westminster. Mentored by Herbert Morrison and Hugh Gaitskell, she rose through the party becoming a Home Office minister under Roy Jenkins and latterly an Education Minister with responsibility for the introduction of comprehensive schools. In the Home Office in the 1960s she oversaw the introduction of substantial societal changes, including the abolition of the death penalty, the decriminalisation of homosexuality and the legalisation of abortion. Her political career spanned some of the most momentous decades in Britain’s postwar history and she played an integral part in some of the most significant social, educational and political changes which the country has ever witnessed. Labour MP Rachel Reeves here tells Alice Bacon’s story, narrating one woman’s extraordinary progression from the coalfields to the Commons.

In 1971, he received the Nobel Peace Prize for ‘Ostpolitik’, his policy of reconciliation with Germany’s neighbours in the Eastern Bloc. During the treaty negotiations in Warsaw, he famously fell to his knees in recognition of the atrocities committed by his countrymen in the Warsaw Ghetto. This definitive new biography illuminates Brandt’s personal life and political career, providing new perspectives on one of the leading statesmen of the twentieth century.

The Man Who Made China PHILIP SHORT New updated and revised edition of the classic biography of the man behind modern China One of the great figures of the twentieth century, Chairman Mao looms irrepressibly over the economic rise of China. Mao Zedong was the leader of a revolution, a communist who lifted hundreds of millions out of poverty, an aggressive and distrustful leader, and a man responsible for more civilian deaths than perhaps any other historical figure. Now, four decades after Mao’s death, acclaimed biographer Philip Short presents a fully updated and revised edition of his groundbreaking and masterly biography. Vivid, uncompromising and unflinching, Short presents in one volume the man behind the propaganda – his family, his beliefs and his horrors. In doing so he shows us both the human being Mao was, and the monster he became.

He was the warrior who led the Welsh Revolt and the last war of Welsh independence (1400-1415). He defeated Henry IV’s army, was a worthy opponent of the king’s champion, the legendary Henry Percy – ‘Hotspur’ – and last native Welshman to bear the title Prince of Wales. He held court at Harlech and envisioned an independent Welsh state and church with national universities. Yet GlynDwr’s success was short-lived – his ultimate defeat at the hands of the English saw the final abandonment of the Welsh cause by France and his own disappearance into an unmarked grave. Gideon Brough here provides a new biography of this iconic man – as military leader, diplomat, medieval statesman and staunch Welsh nationalist.

THE POPES AND BRITAIN

NEW

A History of Rule, Rupture and Reconciliation STELLA FLETCHER A major new history of Britain’s turbulent relationship with the Vatican When the British thought of themselves as a Protestant nation their natural enemy was the pope and they adapted their view of history accordingly. In contrast, Rome’s perspective was always considerably wider and its view of Britain was almost invariably positive, especially in comparison to medieval emperors, who made and unmade popes, and post-medieval Frenchmen, who treated popes with contempt. As the twenty-first-century papacy looks ever more firmly beyond Europe, this new history examines political, diplomatic and cultural relations between the popes and Britain from their vague origins, through papal overlordship of England, the Reformation and the process of repairing that breach.

THE NAPOLEONIC MEDITERRANEAN

NEW

Enlightenment, Revolution and Empire MICHAEL BROERS Acclaimed historian and biographer of Napoleon tells the story of the Emperor’s greatest region of influence The Mediterranean was one of Napoleon’s greatest spheres of influence. With territory in Spain, Italy and, of course, France, Napoleon’s regime dominated the Great Sea for much of the early nineteenth century. The ‘Napoleonic Mediterranean’ was composed of almost the entirety of the western, European lands bordering its northern shores, however tenuously many of those shores were held. The disastrous attempt to conquer Egypt in 1798-99, and the rapid loss of Malta to the British, sealed its eastward and southern limits. None of these regions were easily held; they were volatile societies which showed determined resistance to the new state forged by the French Revolution. In this book, acclaimed historian and biographer of Napoleon Michael Broers looks at the process of political, military and legal administration as well as the challenges in overcoming local hostility in the attempt to control Napoleon’s Mediterranean possessions.

The World of Domenico Caracciolo, Thinker and Reformer ANGUS CAMPBELL The colourful world of 18th-century European politics, revealed through the writings of a leading Italian statesman Dominico Caracciolo was an important figure on the eighteenth-century European stage, holding high office as a diplomat in London, Turin and Paris, and as viceroy and prime minister in the Two Sicilies. He was an inveterate letter-writer and his huge correspondence, with his diplomatic despatches and other official writing is a unique original source, providing a detailed and vivid picture of the eighteenth-century European elite with all its extravagance and scandalous behaviour. Even more importantly, it is an account of an Enlightenment struggle against the increasingly outdated clerical and feudal rule in Sicily. Caracciolo was an abrasive and combative official and politician and vigorous scion of the Enlightenment. In this book, Angus Campbell provides a detailed portrait of Caracciolo and of the political, social, economic, legal and cultural context in which he lived and worked. In doing so, he offers a unique vantage point on the European diplomatic culture of the eighteenth century.

REIMAGINING A LOST ARMENIAN HOME

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

The Dildilian Photography Collection ARMEN T. MARSOOBIAN A unique photographic record of Armenian history, before and during the Genocide For nearly a century members of the Dildilian family practiced the art of photography in Ottoman Turkey, Greece and the United States. This book contains over 200 photographs, primarily from the Ottoman era, beginning with the creation of the family business by Tsolag Dildilian in Sivas in central Turkey in 1882 and concluding in 1922 in Samsun, when the family was forced into exile in Greece. The photographs and the stories that unfold around them capture a defining period in the nearly three thousand year history of the Armenians in Anatolia and the Armenian Highlands. The early twentieth century witnessed the violent erasure of the Armenians from their historic homeland, with catastrophic effects for the Dildilian family and their community. Yet this was also a period of unprecedented educational, cultural and commercial development for the Armenians. The Dildilian family was intimately involved in the triumphs and tragedies of these years and this book, through its rich pictorial history, sheds unprecedented light on the real-life experiences of Armenians in the devastating years of the Armenian Genocide and beyond. It is an unusual and original contribution to the social history of the Near East.

The Life and Letters of Edward FitzGerald WILLIAM H. MARTIN & SANDRA MASON Revealing the life of one of the Victorian era’s most remarkable scholars and writers Edward FitzGerald’s translation of The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám is one of the best-known poems in the English language. Its lines and verses have become part of the Western literary canon and his translation of this most famous of poems has been continuously in print for almost a century and a half. But just who was Edward FitzGerald? Was he the eccentric recluse that most scholars would have us believe? Is there more to the man than just his famous translation? Drawing on their unique analysis of the more than 2,000 surviving letters of FitzGerald, together with evidence from his scrapbooks, commonplace books and materials from his personal library, the authors reveal a more convivial yet complex personality than we have been led to suppose.

THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

GEOFFREY SWAIN 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.

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

HENRIETTA LEYSER An essential introduction to the birth of England ‘Here lies our leader all cut down, the valiant man in the dust.’ The elegiac words of the Battle of Maldon, an epic poem written to celebrate the bravery of an English army defeated by Viking raiders in 991, emerge from a diverse literature – including Beowulf and Bede’s Ecclesiastical History – produced by the peoples known as the AngloSaxons: Germanic tribes who migrated to Britain from the continent in the early fifth century CE. The era once known as the ‘Dark Ages’ was marked by stunning cultural advances, and Henrietta Leyser here offers a fresh analysis of exciting recent discoveries made in the archaeology and art of the Anglo-Saxon world. Arguing that the desperate struggle (led by Alfred the Great) against the Norsemen helped define a distinctively English sensibility, the author explores relations with the indigenous British, the Anglo-Saxon conversion to Christianity, the ascendancy of Mercia and the rise of Wessex. This vivid history evokes both the emergent kingdoms of Alfred and Offa and the golden treasures of Sutton Hoo and the Staffordshire Hoard.

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.

Surviving the Great Fire of London HAZEL FORSYTH The true story of how ordinary Londoners survived the Great Fire The Great Fire, which raged from 2 to 5 September 1666 caused more damage to the City of London than the Blitz in the Second World War. Buildings were destroyed and a new City rose from the ashes. But what impact did the fire have on individual lives and businesses? How did Londoners survive the fire? What did they have in their homes and shops? What did they lose or stand to lose as the flames swept towards them? These questions lie at the heart of this book; the first study of the material culture of the fire and its impact on the crafts and trades of the City. It is an enthralling and surprising story of tragedy and despair, courage and resilience. It is also a story about the ordinary, sometimes extraordinary, men and women who struggled to rebuild their lives and the civic institutions which came to their aid. The evidence is entirely drawn from primary sources, much of it published here for the first time. Beautifully illustrated with all kinds of goods from exquisite fabrics to the humble pot, we are treated to a visual feast; an evocative reminder of life in one of the most dynamic periods of English history.

RECOGNIZING SUFISM

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

Contemplation in the Islamic Tradition ARTHUR F. BUEHLER A fresh perspective on the rich, multilayered and often misunderstood Muslim tradition that has captured the imagination of the West Sufism is all too often associated just with ‘mysticism’ in the West. The author of this new textbook, a former pupil of Annemarie Schimmel, suggests that conflating Sufism and mysticism is only partially valid. He shows that the vast majority of Sufi practice, both historically and in the contemporary world, has little or nothing to do with a esoteric transcendence but is rather focused on contemplative activity. Such practice might involve art, music, devotional shrine visitation – even politics and psychology. Placing Sufism in a wider Islamic contemplative context enables Arthur F. Buehler to examine Sufi history, as well as current application, against a backdrop that is richer and more inclusive than that portrayed in many competing introductory surveys. Discussing the origins of Sufism; the development of Sufi lineages (via three founder figures); Sufi lodges and the role of Sufism in colonial resistance; Sufi poetry; Sufi shrines, and Sufism in the West, the author rescues his topic from the idea that it means only union with the divine. In this original new treatment, Sufism emerges as complex and multi-layered.

EMPEROR OF THE FIVE RIVERS

NEW

The Life and Times of Maharajah Ranjit Singh MOHAMED SHEIKH A new biogaphy of the man who became one of the greatest figures in the history of the Punjab In 1801, at the age of 20, Ranjit Singh became the first Maharaja of the Sikh Empire and subsequently emerged as one of the greatest figures in the history of Punjab. Despite the difficult conditions he faced, including harsh terrain, a mixed ethnic population and surrounding aggressors (particularly the British), Ranjit Singh managed to unite the various Sikh factions and built a nation that neighbours soon learnt to treat with respect. Following his death in 1839, the empire fell into gradual decline, and in 1845 the Sikhs were defeated in battle by the British and fell under the influence of the East India Company. It was Ranjit Singh’s leadership skills and personal characteristics which kept the Sikh empire strong and united in the face of adversity. Unusually for the time, the empire that Singh led was secular and he sought to promote inter-faith unity through policies of equality and non-discrimination. This biography sheds new light on this important figure in Sikh history and illustrates the extraordinary leadership qualities, military prowess and political skills which ensured Ranjit Singh’s success as a leader in challenging circumstances.

VISITORS TO VERONA

NEW

Lovers, Gentlemen and Adventurers CAROLINE WEBB A history of one of Italy’s most seductive cities, from the era of Shakespeare to the Risorgimento Even before the advent of mass tourism, Verona was a popular destination with travellers, including those undertaking the popular ‘Grand Tour’ across Europe. In this book, Caroline Webb compares the experiences of travellers from the era of Shakespeare to the years following the incorporation of the Veneto into the new kingdom of Italy in 1866. She considers their reasons for visiting Verona as well as their experiences and expectations once they arrived. The majority of English visitors between 1670 and 1760 were young members of the aristocracy, accompanied by tutors, who arrived on their way to or from Rome, as part of a ‘Grand Tour’ intended to ‘finish’ their classical education. With the Industrial Revolution in the second half of the eighteenth century, and the resultant increasing wealth of the upper middle classes, the number of visitors to Verona increased although this tourism was derailed once Napoleon invaded Italy in the late 1790s. After 1815 and the allied victory at Waterloo there was a new flood of visitors, previously deprived of the opportunity of continental travel during the Napoleonic wars. As the nineteenth century progressed, especially with the arrival of the railway, an increasing number of visitors appeared from across Europe and even from across the Atlantic, keen to explore the fabled city of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

ANDALUCIA

NEW

A Literary Guide for Travellers ANDREW & SUZANNE EDWARDS Delving into the rich literary history of the soul of Spain Andalucia is the quintessence of Spain and yet, historically and culturally, it is surprisingly unlike the rest of the country. Its literary history began to develop with the Romans and reached an early flowering when Arabic poets drew on centuries of literary tradition, together with the landscapes and passions of Moorish Spain. Later, Prosper Mérimée, Byron and Washington Irving forged legends of exotic southern Spain that persist to this day and Spanish writers themselves captured the rich passions of Andalucian culture, from Cervantes’ Seville to Lorca’s ‘hidden Andalucia’. With the advent of the Civil War, a new generation flocked to Andalucia and were inspired to write some of the twentieth century’s most iconic works of literature, from Hemingway’s For Whom the Bell Tolls to Gerald Brenan’s The Spanish Labyrinth and Laurie Lee’s trilogy of books. As vibrant and compelling as the region itself, Andalucia: A Literary Guide for Travellers illuminates the very soul of Spain.

BABYLON

NEW PAPERBACK EDITION

Legend, History and the Ancient City MICHAEL SEYMOUR One of the greatest cities of the ancient world, Babylon – home to the fabulous hanging gardens – has been eclipsed by its own sinful reputation. For two thousand years the real, physical metropolis lay buried while another, ghostly city lived on, engorged on accounts of its own destruction. More recently the site of Babylon has been the centre of major excavation: yet the spectacular results of this work have done little displace the many other fascinating ways in which the city has endured and reinvented itself in culture. Saddam Hussein, for one, notoriously exploited the Babylonian myth to associate himself and his regime with its glorious past. Why has Babylon so creatively fired the human imagination, with results both good and ill? Why has it been so enthralling to so many, and for so long? In exploring answers, Michael Seymour ranges across art, archaeology, history, politics and literature. From Hammurabi and Nebuchadnezzar to Rembrandt, Voltaire, William Blake and modern interpreters like Umberto Eco, Italo Calvino and Gore Vidal, the author explores a carnival of disparate sources dominated by the intoxicating idea of depravity. Michael Seymour is a Research Associate in the Department of Ancient Near Eastern Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. He is co-author (with I.L. Finkel) of Babylon: Myth and Reality (2008). August 2016 384 pages 216 x 134mm Paperback 9781784536916 £14.99

THE LANCASHIRE WITCHES

A Chronicle of Sorcery and Death on Pendle Hill

NEW IN PAPERBACK

PHILIP C. ALMOND In the febrile religious and political climate of late sixteenth-century England, 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. The women who lived in the vicinity of Pendle, who were accused alongside the so-called Samlesbury Witches, then convicted and hanged, were more than just wicked sorcerers whose malign incantations caused others harm. They were reputed to be part of a dense network of devilry and mischief that revealed itself as much in hidden celebration of the Mass as in malevolent magic. They had to be eliminated to set an example to others. 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. Philip C. Almond is Professor Emeritus of Religion at the University of Queensland. His other books include Afterlife: A History of Life after Death and England’s First Demonologist. October 2016 256 pages 216 x 135mm Paperback 9781784537715 £10.99

A HISTORY OF THE ROYAL NAVY World War I

NEW PAPERBACK EDITION

MIKE FARQUHARSON-ROBERTS For many years the naval warfare of World War I has been largely overlooked; yet, at the outbreak of that war, the British Government had expected and intended its military contribution to the conflict to be largely naval. Britain was not simply defending an island; it was defending a far flung empire. Without the navy such an undertaking would have been impossible. Following the naval arms race in the early 20th century, both Britain and Germany were equipped with the latest naval technology, including revolutionary new vessels such as dreadnoughts and diesel-powered submarines. Although the Royal Navy’s operations in World War I were global, most of the fleet’s strength was concentrated in the Grand Fleet, which confronted the German High Seas Fleet across the North Sea. At the Battle of Jutland in 1916 the Royal Navy, under the command of Admiral Jellicoe, fought an iconic, if inconclusive battle for control of shipping routes. 43,244 Royal Navy personnel lost their lives fighting on the seas in World War I. This book tells their story and places the navy back at the heart of the British war effort. Mike Farquharson-Roberts holds a PhD in Maritime History from University of Exeter. He previously had a long and distinguished career in the Royal Navy. October 2016 256 pages 216 x 135mm Paperback 9781784536725 £9.99

AXEL MUNTHE

The Road to San Michele

NEW PAPERBACK EDITION

BENGT JANGFELDT The precociously bright son of a Swedish pharmacist, Axel Munthe worked under Jean Martin Charcot, and in 1880, became the youngest doctor in French history. By the 1890s, he was world-famous for his healing powers, believed by some to be supernatural. He moved in the most colourful and exalted circles of fin de siecle Europe, counting amongst his friends Henry James, Howard Carter, Rainer Maria Rilke, Lady Ottoline Morrell and Count Zeppelin. Though physician to the Swedish court, where he became the lover of the Crown Princess Victoria, Munthe was more at home with nature than with people. In 1929 he published The Story of San Michele, an account of his life, shot through with his love for Italy and Capri, where he built a bird sanctuary and the house of his dreams, the Villa San Michele. It became an international best seller, and is one of the classics of the last century. Bengt Jangfeldt is the first person to have gone through Munthe’s diaries, letters and notebooks to produce this definitive account of one of twentieth century Europe’s most vibrant figures. Bengt Jangfeldt is a Professor of Literature and best-selling writer. He is the author of several books on Russian literature, and in 1998 was awarded the August Strindberg Prize The Swedish edition of ‘Axel Munthe: The Road to San Michele’ was awarded the Swedish Academy’s biography prize.

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 WWII is, in essence, a story of hope, even happiness, in the very heart of darkness.

INSIDE THE SERAGLIO Private Lives of the Sultans in Istanbul JOHN FREELY The classic history of the grandeur and intrigue of the Sultan’s palace This is the story of the House of Osman, the imperial dynasty that ruled the Ottoman Empire for more than seven centuries, an empire that once stretched from central Europe to North Africa and from Persia to the Adriatic. The capital of this empire was Istanbul, ancient Byzantium, a city that stands astride Europe and Asia on the Bosphorus. And it was in the great palace of Topkapi Sarayi that the sultans of this empire ruled. Inside the Seraglio – a classic of Ottoman history – takes us behind the gilded doors of the Topkapi and into the heart of the palace: the harem, where the sultan would surround himself with his wives, concubines, eunuchs, pages, dwarfs and mutes and where all the tempestuous events of empire were so often played out. This is the history of a remarkable palace in all its color and opulence and the story of its influence on a great empire.

THE MINT Lawrence After Arabia T. E. LAWRENCE NEW INTRODUCTION BY ANDREW SATTIN T. E. Lawrence’s compelling memoir of his time in the air force, following the Arab Revolt In 1922, his dreams of an independent Arabia shattered, T.E. Lawrence enlisted in the RAF under the assumed name John Hume Ross. Though methodical and restrictive, life there seemed to suit Lawrence: ‘The Air Force is not a mancrushing humiliating slavery, all its days. There is sun and decent treatment, and a very real measure of happiness, to those who do not look forward or back.’ With poetic clarity, Lawrence brings to life the harsh realities of barracks life and illuminates the strange twilight world he had slipped into after his war experiences. For anyone interested in the life of one of the 20th century’s most enduring heroes and his life beyond the well-documented Arab revolt, The Mint is essential and compelling reading.

Educated at Oxford, he was later made a research fellow of All Souls College. During World War I he was attached to the Hejaz Expeditionary Force and later transferred to General Allenby’s staff.

He was killed in a motorbike accident in 1935 at the age of 47.

THE SOUTH AMERICAN DIARIES JOHN HOPKINS A cult-classic tequila-infused journey through South America While writing a novel set in South America, John Hopkins travelled back there to ‘reacquaint himself with the scene’. In 1972-3, he travelled by train, bus and boat from Mexico City to the centre of the continent, through Belize, Guatemala and Nicaragua and on to Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay and Argentina. Hopkins travelled slowly, deliberately, savouring every experience along the way. But the journey was fraught with his angst-ridden strivings to write his novel and with the troubled love he had for Madeleine, his travelling companion. In these heat-scorched, tequila-infused pages, Hopkins paints a sultry, exquisite portrait of South America and in so doing masters an art that he believed would forever elude him.

ROOTS AND CULTURE

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

Cultural Politics in the Making of Black Britain EDDIE CHAMBERS Expressions of Black British identity in art, literature, music and protest How did a distinct and powerful Black British identity emerge? In the 1950s, when many Caribbean migrants came to Britain, there was no such recognised entity as ‘Black Britain.’ Yet by the 1980s, the cultural landscape had radically changed, and a remarkable array of creative practices such as theatre, poetry, literature, music and the visual arts gave voice to striking new articulations of BlackBritish identity. This new book chronicles the extraordinary blend of social, political and cultural influences from the mid1950s to the late 1970s that gave rise to new heights of Black British artistic expression in the 1980s. Eddie Chambers relates how and why during these decades ‘West Indians’ became ‘Afro-Caribbeans,’ and how in turn ‘Afro-Caribbeans’ became ‘Black British’ – and the centrality of the arts to this important narrative. The British Empire, migration, Rastafari, the Anti-Apartheid struggle, reggae music, dub poetry, the ascendance of the West Indies cricket team and the coming of Margaret Thatcher – all of these factors, and others, have had a part to play in the compelling story of how the African Diaspora transformed itself to give rise to Black Britain.

Andy Warhol and Sculpture THOMAS MORGAN EVANS An essential new perspective on one of the world’s most innovative and distinctive artists Rain machines; alarmed pickle jars; replica corn flakes boxes; ‘disco décor’; time capsules; birthday presents; perfume bottles and floating silver pillows; museum interventions; collected and curated projects; expanded performance environments; and holograms. This is a book about the varied, surprising ways in which Andy Warhol engaged with sculpture. It begins in 1954, long before his first Pop paintings, and ends in 1987, the year of his death. In 3D Warhol, Thomas Morgan Evans argues that Warhol’s experiments with sculpture, and engagement with both traditional and newly emerging understandings of sculpture, amounted to ‘trespasses’ across art historical and social territories. This groundbreaking, original book brings to the forefront a major, but overlooked dimension of Warhol’s work, providing an essential new perspective on the artist’s legacy.

FOREVER STARDUST

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

David Bowie Across the Universe WILL BROOKER Bowie the artist uniquely revealed across the recurring matrix of his life and creative work Most of the many books about David Bowie track his artistic ‘changes’ chronologically throughout his career. This book, uniquely, examines Bowie’s ‘sameness’: his recurring themes, images, motifs and concepts as an artist, across all his creative work, from lyrics and music through to costumes, storyboards, films, plays and painting. To be published on Bowie’s 70th birthday, Forever Stardust looks at Bowie’s work not as a linear evolution through calendar time, to his tragic death in January 2016, but as a matrix, a dialogue, a network of ideas that echo back and forth across the five decades of his career, interacting with each other and with the surrounding culture. It explores Bowie’s creative output as a whole, tracing the repetitions and obsessions that structure his work, discovering what they tell us about Bowie in all his forms, from Ziggy Stardust to David Jones. David Bowie challenged cultural expectations from the early 1970s until his final masterpiece, Blackstar. Forever Stardust offers a new understanding of this remarkable and significant artist.

SOFIA COPPOLA

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

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.

COSTUME, MAKEUP AND HAIR

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

Behind the Silver Screen: A Modern History of Filmmaking EDITED BY ADRIENNE L. MCLEAN Groundbreaking introduction to three major filmmaking art forms emerging from behind the scenes The contribution of makeup artists, hair stylists, and costumers to the filmmaking process has received little scholarly or public recognition – even when their artistry has inspired worldwide fashion trends. Costume, Makeup and Hair reveals how these three crafts have continually adapted to new conditions, making the transitions from stage to screen, from monochrome to colour, and from analog to digital. It considers them in relation to a wide range of film genres, from sci-fi spectacles to period dramas, and examines how they have been active participants in the marketplace for fashion and beauty products. Drawing on rare archival materials and lavish colour illustrations, the expert contributors provide readers in film and fashion with groundbreaking film history and an appreciation of cinematic costume, makeup and hairstyling as distinct art forms.

EDITING AND SPECIAL/ VISUAL EFFECTS

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

Behind the Silver Screen: A Modern History of Filmmaking EDITED BY CHARLIE KEIL & KRISTEN WHISSEL The subtle and spectacular film arts and crafts, which so often dominate the movies Most filmgoers think of editing and special effects as distinct components of the filmmaking process. Yet film editors and visual effects artists have worked hand-in-hand from the dawn of cinema to the present day. Here, expert contributors together trace how the arts of editing and effects have evolved in tandem, starting with the ‘trick films’ of the early silent era, which astounded audiences by splicing in or editing out key frames, all the way to today’s cutting-edge effects technologies. Multiple filmmaking techniques are explored throughout, from classic Hollywood’s rear projection and matte shots to the fast cuts and wall-to-wall CGI of the contemporary blockbuster. The book introduces readers to the analog and digital tools used in these crafts, showing the impact of changes in the film industry itself.

BEING BIONIC

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

The World of TV Cyborgs BRONWEN CALVERT An exploration of the popular figure of the new humans in cult science fiction TV Technologically enhanced human bodies can be the stuff of dreams, but also of nightmares. The contradictions and complexities of the cyborg therefore hold particular appeal to makers of dramatic TV narratives. Bronwen Calvert examines the uses and representations of the cyborg in this groundbreaking text, by looking at its frequent appearance in a wide variety of popular and cult shows: from the iconic Daleks of Doctor Who and bionic female empowerment in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, to the duality of humanoid and distinctly robotic cyborgs in Battlestar Galactica. In doing so, she reveals how television’s defining traits shape our experience of cyborgs and help us as viewers to question contemporary issues such as surveillance and terrorism, as well as the function of simulation and ultimately what it means to be human.

LIQUID SPACE

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

Science Fiction Film and Television in the Digital Age 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.

THE ARCHITECTURE OF PSYCHOANALYSIS

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

Spaces of Transition JANE RENDELL How do external material environments and the inner world of emotion, memory and imagination influence each other? Here, Jane Rendell explores how architectural space registers in psychoanalysis. She investigates both the inherently spatial vocabulary of psychoanalysis and ideas around the physical ‘setting’ of the psychoanalytic encounter, with reference to Sigmund Freud, D.W. Winnicott and André Green. Building on the innovative writing methods employed in Art and Architecture and Site-Writing, she also addresses the concept of architecture as ‘social condenser’ – a Russian constructivist notion that connects material space and community relations. Tracing this idea’s progress from 1920s Moscow to 1950s Britain, Rendell shows how interior and exterior meet in both psychoanalysis and architectural practice. Illuminating a novel field of interdisciplinary enquiry, this book breathes fresh life into notions of social space.

BADIOU REFRAMED ALEX LING

NEW

NEW IN THE CONTEMPORARY THINKERS REFRAMED SERIES

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, the cubist works of Picasso and Braque, the sculpture of Constantin Brancusi and Ossip Zadkine, Kazimir Malevich’s suprematist paintings and Steve McQueen’s film Hunger. 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 and editor and translator (with A.J. Bartlett) of Mathematics of the Transcendental. December 2016 176 pgs 174 x 124mm PB 9781780762609 £12.99

SENECA CHRISTOPHER STAR

NEW

NEW IN THE UNDERSTANDING CLASSICS SERIES

After centuries of neglect there is renewed interest in the life and works of Lucius Annaeus Seneca (or Seneca the Younger, c.4 BCE-65 CE). At one time an advisor at court to Nero, Seneca and his political career came to ruin when he was implicated in a later plot to kill the capricious and matricidal emperor, and compelled to commit suicide. Discredited through collusion, or at least association, with a notorious and tyrannical regime, Seneca’s ideas were for a time also considered derivative of Greek stoicism and thus inferior to the real thing. In this first in-depth introduction to be published for many years, Christopher Star shows what a remarkable statesman, dramatist and philosopher his subject actually was. Seneca’s original contributions to political philosophy and the philosophy of the emotions were considerable. He was a favourite authority of Tertullian, who saw Seneca as proto-believer and early humanist. And he is a key figure in the history of ideas and the Renaissance, as well as in literature and drama. This new survey does full justice to his significance. Christopher Star is Associate Professor of Classics at Middlebury College, Vermont. He is the author of The Empire of the Self: Self-Command and Political Speech in Seneca and Petronius (2012).

Performance Art, Carnival and the Grotesque Body FRANCESCA GRANATA The story of modern fashion, from carnival to the grotesque Experimental Fashion traces the proliferation of the grotesque and carnivalesque within contemporary fashion and the close relation between fashion and performance art. Francesca Granata examines the designers and performance artists at the turn of the twenty-first century whose work challenges established codes of what represents the fashionable body.

This book explores the experimental work of modern designers such as Georgina Godley, Bernhard Willhelm, Rei Kawakubo and fashion designer, performance artist and club figure Leigh Bowery. It also discusses the increased centrality of experimental fashion through the pop phenomenon Lady Gaga.

SURREALISM IN EGYPT

NEW

Modernism and the Art and Liberty Group SAM BARDAOUIL The untold story of how artists in Egypt reworked the Surrealist movement for cultural reform The Surrealist, Cairo-based Art and Liberty Group was founded in 1938 with the publication of its manifesto Long Live Degenerate Art. Rejecting the convergence of art and nationalism, and the academic style endorsed by the Egyptian state and bourgeois moral conventions, its members aligned themselves with a complex, international and evolving Surrealist movement. The group created a distinct reworking of Surrealism, which provided a generation of disillusioned Egyptian and non-Egyptian artists and writers with a platform for cultural reform and anti-Fascist protest. Surrealism in Egypt is the first comprehensive analysis of Art and Liberty’s artworks, literature and critical writings on Surrealism. By addressing the group’s long-lost and often misconstrued legacy, the author charts Art and Liberty’s significant contribution towards a new definition of Surrealism. Moving beyond the polarizing dichotomies, this book rewrites the history of Surrealism itself – advocating for a new definition of the movement that reflects an inclusive vision of art history.

WOMEN TRAVELLERS ON THE NILE

An Anthology of Travel Writing through the Centuries EDITED BY DEBORAH MANLEY Egypt’s fabled sights through the eyes of women travellers across the centuries Until late in the nineteenth century, few guidebooks acknowledged the presence of women as travelers – although women had been travelling around the world for centuries. Women’s accounts of their journeys, distinct from those of male travellers, began to appear more frequently in the early nineteenth century, and Egypt was a popular destination. From Eliza Fay’s description of arriving in Egypt in 1779 to Rosemary Mahoney’s daring trip down the Nile in a rowboat in 2006, this lively collection of writing by over forty women travellers includes Lady Evelyn Cobbold, Isabella Bird, Winifred Blackman, Norma Lorimer, Harriet Martineau, Florence Nightingale, Amelia Edwards, and Lucie Duff Gordon.

RYAN A collection of romantic verse celebrating Egypt’s monumental ruins and pharaonic civilisation Egypt’s ancient pyramids, temples, and tombs along the Nile, which have inspired artists and writers for centuries, have also inspired poets and particularly in the nineteenth century when romanticism was at its height. Egyptologist Donald Ryan here collects a wide variety of English verse composed by British, Irish and North American poets fired up by the magic, the splendor, or the desolation of the pharaonic ruins and their echoes of a distant history. Includes verse by: Robert Browning, Lord Byron, John Keats, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Herman Melville, John Ruskin, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Algernon Charles Swinburne, Alfred Tennyson, Lady Wilde, and many more.

LIFE IS MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN PARADISE

NEW PAPERBACK ORIGINAL

A Jihadist’s Own Story KHALED AL-BERRY TRANSLATED BY HUMPHREY DAVIES One man’s account of a fateful, and sometimes comical, journey into extremism In 1986, when this autobiography opens, the author is a typical fourteen-year-old boy in Asyut in Upper Egypt. Attracted at first by the image of a radical Islamist group as ‘strong Muslims’ his involvement develops until he finds himself deeply committed to its beliefs and implicated in its activities. This ends when, as he leaves the university following a demonstration, he is arrested. Prison, a return to life on the outside, and attending Cairo University all lead to Khaled al-Berry’s eventual alienation from radical Islam. This book opens a window onto the mind of an extremist who turns out to be disarmingly like many other clever adolescents, and bears witness to a history with whose reverberations we continue to live. Fluently written, intellectually gripping, exciting, and often funny, Life Is More Beautiful than Paradise provides a vital key to the understanding of a world that is both a source of fear and a magnet of curiosity for the west.

CAIRO INSIDE OUT

NEW

TREVOR NAYLOR & DORIANA MACMULLEN

Experiencing the splendour of Cairo through 150 stunning photographs shot from the city’s indoor havens Cairo is a city of splendor and spectacle, long celebrated as much for its warmth and bustling street life as for the legacy of its tumultuous past. Yet for the countless visitors who fall under its spell, the prolonged din of its crowds and traffic can seem overwhelming at times, tempting them out of the city’s open spaces into its shadow light, the cooler, quieter interiors of restaurants, homes, hotels and terraces. Cairo Inside Out evokes the light and moods of this great metropolis with stunning photographs shot from the city’s indoor havens. We observe it through and from nostalgic haunts, such as Café Riche and the Windsor Hotel, and look out onto its great sights – the Nile, the Red Pyramid at Dahshur, Ibn Tulun mosque – from the most intimate urban interiors, homes, and watersides. For those who may have lived in Cairo, this is a reminder of a city that moves and yet remains wonderfully unchanged. For visitors and residents, this evocative collection, an unabashed homage to Cairo’s persistent color and allure, will inspire them to visit those places once more.

GAYER-ANDERSON

NEW

The Life and Afterlife of the Irish Pasha LOUISE FOXCROFT A fascinating biography of the renowned Orientalist and collector, who wrestled Turks and crocodiles Based on the personal journals of Robert Grenville GayerAnderson (1881–1945), Egyptologist, poet, surgeon, soldier, psychic, and noted collector, this candid and charming historical biography tells of Gayer-Anderson’s strange and eclectic life in the final days of the British empire. As a child, he crossed an unforgiving America with his entrepreneurial and eccentric Irish parents. As a man, he immersed himself in the Arab way of life as colonials seldom did; he sailed the Nile, wrestled Turks and crocodiles, fought at Gallipoli, smoked opium, performed surgery in the desert and survived an assassination attempt. His personal journals are filled with frank accounts of his exploits and of the illustrious and colorful people who wandered by: Lawrence of Arabia, Gordon, Kitchener, Conan-Doyle, Eric Gill and Stephen Spender, among others. Drugs, race, class, family, sex and selfhood are vividly mixed in this tale of two wars, colonial life, medicine, anthropology and psychic phenomena. The stiff-upper-lipped ritual of a very British upbringing vied with his Romantic and consuming love of beauty, vividly embodied in the Gayer-Anderson Museum in Cairo, which to this day houses his vast collection of carpets, furniture, glassware, and other curios.

The Necropolis of the Sons of the Sun MIROSLAV VERNER A comprehensive account of half a century’s excavation and investigation at one of Egypt’s most significant pyramid sites At the centre of the world-famous pyramid field of the Memphite necropolis lies a group of pyramids, temples and tombs named after the nearby village of Abusir. Long overshadowed by the more familiar pyramids at Giza and December 2016 Saqqara, this area has nonetheless been the site, for the last 352 pages 230 x 150mm Hardback £29.95 fifty years, of an extensive operation to discover its past. 9789774167904

This thoroughly updated in-depth study documents the 25 color illustrations and line uncovering by a dedicated team of Czech archaeologists of drawings a hitherto neglected wealth of ancient remains dating from The American University in Cairo the Old Kingdom to the Late Period. This is Abusir, realm of Press Osiris, God of the dead, and its story is one of both modern archaeology and the long-buried mysteries that it seeks to uncover.

He is the author of Temple of the World: Sanctuaries, Cults, and Mysteries of Ancient Egypt (AUC Press, 2013).

NEW IN PAPERBACK

From the Table of Abou el Sid NEHAL LEHETA Traditionally, Egyptian cooking has been best practiced and enjoyed at home, where generations of unrecorded family recipes have been the sustaining repertoire for daily meals as well as sumptuous holiday feasts.

Egyptians will recognise their favorites, from holiday dishes such as Fettah to the arrays of appetisers like aubergine with garlic, special lentils, and tahina; those new to Middle Eastern food will find the recipes simple and simply delicious, and enjoy the Egyptian table even if they don’t have the heritage of the pharaohs in their family backgrounds. Nehal Leheta is an interior designer in Cairo with a strong interest in cuisine.

AMARNA SUNRISE

NEW IN PAPERBACK

Egypt from Golden Age to Age of Heresy AIDAN DODSON The latter part of the fifteenth century B.C. saw Egypt’s political power reach its zenith, with an empire that stretched from beyond the Euphrates in the north to much of what is now Sudan in the south. The wealth that flowed into Egypt allowed its kings to commission some of the most stupendous temples of all time, some of the greatest dedicated to Amun-Re, King of the Gods. Yet a century later these temples lay derelict, the god’s images, names and titles all erased in an orgy of iconoclasm by Akhenaten, the devotee of a single sun-god. This book traces the history of Egypt from the death of the great warrior-king Thutmose III to the high point of Akhenaten’s reign, when the known world brought gifts to his newly built capital city of Amarna, in particular looking at the way in which the cult of the sun became increasingly important to even ‘orthodox’ kings, culminating in the transformation of Akhenaten’s father, Amenhotep III, into a solar deity in his own right. Aidan Dodson is a senior research fellow in the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Bristol, where he teaches Egyptology. He was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London in 2003. He is the author of Amarna Sunset, Poisoned Legacy, and Afterglow of Empire.
