The Cambridge Dictionary of Modern World History (Hardcover, New title): Chris Cook, John Stevenson The Cambridge Dictionary of Modern World History (Hardcover, New title)
Chris Cook, John Stevenson
R3,112 Discovery Miles 31 120 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

In a world where we take for granted the ability to communicate instantly across vast distances and time, world history has come of age. We increasingly reflect on history from a position which no longer privileges Europe or the West, and from a global perspective which ranges from the Pacific Rim to the Balkans, and from Latin America to the Middle East. Compiled by an international team of contributors, area editors and general editors, The Cambridge Dictionary of Modern World History provides a much needed guide to the main global events, personalities and themes from the eighteenth century to the present. Major themes of war, politics, society and religion are covered, alongside more recent subjects within the discipline; from globalization and the environment to transnational social movements and human rights. This is an essential new work of reference not only for scholars and students but also for the wider general public.

William Cobbett, Romanticism and the Enlightenment - Contexts and Legacy (Paperback): James Grande, John Stevenson William Cobbett, Romanticism and the Enlightenment - Contexts and Legacy (Paperback)
James Grande, John Stevenson
R964 Discovery Miles 9 640 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

William Cobbett was one of the greatest journalists of his day. Humbly born in Surrey, following a career in the British army in Canada from 1784, he cut his journalistic teeth as the loyalist 'Peter Porcupine' in the United States, defending all things British against the French Revolution and its supporters. Following his return to England in 1800 he became the major critic of corruption and a principal advocate of parliamentary reform and press freedom. It led to prosecution, prison and temporary exile, but also to the eventual triumph of reform and his persistent defence of the rights of the poor. This is the first essay collection devoted to Cobbett and contains essays from scholars from a wide variety of disciplines. It will be of interest to those researching the literature and culture of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, including the works of Paine, Rousseau, Swift and Hazlitt, and the Chartist movement.

Yoshitoshi's Strange Tales (Paperback): John Stevenson Yoshitoshi's Strange Tales (Paperback)
John Stevenson
R1,114 Discovery Miles 11 140 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Taiso Yoshitoshi (1839-1892) was fascinated by the supernatural, and some of his best work concerns ghosts, monsters, and charming animal transmutations. Yoshitoshi's strange tales presents two series (with full page illustrations) that focus on his depictions of the weird and magical world of the transformed. The first series is One Hundred Tales of Japan and China (Wakan hyaku monogatari, 1865) and it is based on a game in which people told short scary ghost tales in a darkened room, extinguishing a candle as each tale ended. New Forms of Thirty-six Strange Things (Shinken sanjurokkaisen) of 1889-92 illustrates stories from Japan's rich heritage of legends in more serene and objective ways.

A History of British Elections since 1689 (Paperback): Chris Cook, John Stevenson A History of British Elections since 1689 (Paperback)
Chris Cook, John Stevenson
R1,040 Discovery Miles 10 400 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

A History of British Elections since 1689 represents a unique single-volume authoritative reference guide to British elections and electoral systems from the Glorious Revolution to the present day. The main focus is on general elections and associated by-elections, but Chris Cook and John Stevenson also cover national referenda, European parliament elections, municipal elections, and elections to the Welsh and Northern Irish assemblies and the Scottish parliament. The outcome and political significance of all these elections are looked at in detail, but the authors also discuss broader themes and debates in British electoral history, for example: the evolution of the electoral system, parliamentary reform, women's suffrage, constituency size and numbers, elimination of corrupt practices, and other important topics. The book also follows the fortunes not only of the major political parties but of fringe movements of the extreme right and left. Combining data, summary and analysis with thematic overviews and chronological outlines, this major new reference provides a definitive guide to the long and varied history of British elections and is essential reading for students of British political history.

The Opinions of William Cobbett (Paperback, New Ed): James Grande, John Stevenson The Opinions of William Cobbett (Paperback, New Ed)
James Grande, John Stevenson
R1,012 Discovery Miles 10 120 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Politician, journalist, reformer, convict, social commentator and all-round thorn in the side of the establishment, William Cobbett cut a swathe through late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth century British society with his copious and acerbic writings on any and every issue that caught his attention. Both a radical and a conservative, and with strong opinions on any given subject, Cobbett had a talent for controversial and pugnacious writing that echoes down the centuries and still rings fresh today. Commemorating the 250th anniversary of Cobbett's birth in 1763, this book provides a selection of his writings - both published and unpublished - that highlight his talents, obsessions, and concerns. From corruption and Parliamentary reform, poverty and commerce, to patriotism and religion, the selections display Cobbett at his best - sometimes outraged and excoriating, sometimes sympathetic and reasoned - but always honest and witty. Divided into 14 chapters each dealing with a particular theme, the selections are contextualised so as to provide the necessary historical background for any readers who may be unfamiliar with the period. In so doing, the book not only brings to life the dynamic and rumbustious world of Georgian England within which Cobbett moved, but also reveals many uncanny parallels with modern concerns. Whether espousing political reform, promoting rural affairs or decrying a spiralling national debt, many of Cobbett's opinions seem as relevant today as when they were first written. Certainly modern readers will find much here to educate, amuse and admire.

Yoshitoshi (1839 - 1892) was the last virtuoso of the Japanese woodblock print, and the One Hundred Aspects of the Moon, published between 1885 and 1892, were his crowning achievement. This series - mainly illustrating stories from history and legend, unified by the motif of the moon - is charged with paradox. In order to carry forward the tradition of ukiyo-e, Yoshitoshi drew stylistic inspiration from the very forces that were rendering it obsolete - namely, Western art and mass media like photography and lithography. As if they realised they were witnessing the end of an era, the artist's public responded enthusiastically to his innovative series - many of the individual prints were sold out on the morning of their publication. This magnificent facsimile of One Hundred Aspects of the Moon reproduces each print at its original size, facing an explanation of the subject. A thorough introductory text, augmented with many comparative illustrations, traces Yoshitoshi's career and the genesis of this series. Printed and bound to the most exacting specifications, this volume will be a must for aficionados of Japanese prints.
