This memoir constitutes one of the best first-person narratives of the Civil War experience. It is written with power, candour, objectivity and elegance. The story that John Sergeant Wise recounts is a colourful, almost novelistic account of a young Confederate soldier's life and views. END OF AN ERA is a valuable archive of sociological and anthropological information about a bygone era. Wise affectionately recounts the cultural and economic diversity of his social landscape. He describes many of the small towns, villages, and territories of early Virginia, recalling the demographic, economic, religious, and political aspects that made them notable. In the book's detailed prose, the various strands that made up the fabric of antebellum Southern culture are captured beautifully. He also describes the privations and horrors of war, and the failings of Southern leaders, with unflinching honesty. He does not glorify the Southern army or its government, nor does he try to justify his occasionally ungentlemanly conduct and speech. The full range of his emotions is exhibited in this memoir, reactions he had to the complex changes that occurred within his own circle, as well as in larger Southern society.

This book contains articles on historic cities of the Islamic world, ranging from West Africa to Malaysia, which over the centuries have been centres of culture and learning and of economic and commercial life, and which have contributed much to the consolidation of Islam as a faith and as a social and political institution. The articles have been taken from the second edition of the Encyclopaedia of Islam, completed in 2004, but in many cases expanded and rewritten. All have been updated to include fresh historical information, with note of contemporary social developments and population statistics. The book thus delineates the urban background of Islam has it has evolved up to the present day, highlighting the role of such great cities as Cairo, Istanbul, Baghdad and Delhi in Islamic history, and also brings them together in a rich panorama illustrating one of mankind's greatest achievements, the living organism of the city.

This book examines the frequently expressed assertion by political commentators and historians that the UK is currently experiencing ‘the end of a political era’. It does this by analysing the seismic shifts in the way politics have been conducted in recent years, principally since the EU Referendum in 2016. It also considers these developments in the light of the relative political stability which lasted from the end of the Second World War, and it compares this with another discrete ‘political era’, spanning from 1832 to the 1906 election. Comparisons between the two periods make a compelling case for contemporary claims and also provide a broad definition of what constitutes a political era. The book will be of importance to historians and students of history, but in its broader treatment of such current issues as democracy, voter motivation, electoral systems, globalisation, national and local identities, and migration, it will also appeal to the politically-minded general reader.

The incursions of women into areas from which they had been traditionally excluded, together with the literary representations of their attempts to negotiate, subvert and appropriate these forbidden spaces, is the underlying theme that unites this collection of essays. Here scholars from Australia, Greece, Great Britain, Spain, Switzerland and the United States reconsider the well-entrenched assumptions associated with the public/private distinction, working with the notions of public and private spheres while testing their currency and exploring their blurred edges. The essays cover and uncover a rich variety of spaces, from the slums and court-rooms of London to the American wilderness, from the Victorian drawing-room and sick-room to out of the ordinary places like Turkish baths and the trenches of the First World War. Where previous studies have tended to focus on a single aspect of women’s engagement with space, this edited book reveals a plethora of subtle and tenacious strategies found in a variety of discourses that include fiction, poetry, diaries, letters, essays and journalism. Inside Out goes beyond the early work on artistic explorations of gendered space to explore the breadth of the field and its theoretical implications.
