The twenty-five year period following the Second World War saw an enormous expansion of activity in the writing of the history of modern Britain, and with that expansion a major transformation of the state of knowledge in many parts of the area. First published in 1970, this Revivals reissue, which includes an extensive coverage of books and a reasonable selection of articles, endeavours both to survey the work done and to reduce it to some comprehensible order. It indicates achievements and probable lines of development, and collects the materials that have grown around the main controversies. Omitted are local history (in the main) and the history of empire and commonwealth, except where the latter really arises out of the affairs of the mother country. There are special sections on social history, the history of ideas, Scotland and Ireland.

The study of Irish history, once riven and constricted, has recently enjoyed a resurgence, with new practitioners, new approaches, and new methods of investigation. The Oxford Handbook of Modern Irish History represents the diversity of this emerging talent and achievement by bringing together 36 leading scholars of modern Ireland and embracing 400 years of Irish history, uniting early and late modernists as well as contemporary historians. The Handbook offers a set of scholarly perspectives drawn from numerous disciplines, including history, political science, literature, geography, and the Irish language. It looks at the Irish at home as well as in their migrant and diasporic communities. The Handbook combines sets of wide thematic and interpretative essays, with more detailed investigations of particular periods. Each of the contributors offers a summation of the state of scholarship within their subject area, linking their own research insights with assessments of future directions within the discipline. In its breadth and depth and diversity, The Oxford Handbook of Modern Irish History offers an authoritative and vibrant portrayal of the history of modern Ireland.

Elizabeth's Wars

War, Government and Society in Tudor England, 1544-1604

Between 1544 and 1604, Tudor England was involved in a series of wars which strained government and society to their limits. By the time Elizabeth became queen in 1558, England and Wales were likened to 'a bone thrown between two dogs' - the great European powers of France and Spain. Elizabeth's Wars tells the story of how Elizabeth I and her government overcame early obstacles and gradually rebuilt England's military power on both land and sea, absorbing vital lessons about modern warfare from 'secret wars' fought on the Continent and in the waters of the New World. Elizabeth herself was a reluctant participant in foreign wars and feared the political and material costs of overseas combat - misgivings which proved fully justified during England's great war with Spain in the 1580s and '90s. Nevertheless, Elizabeth's armies and navy succeeded in fighting Spain to a standstill in campaigns which spanned the Low Countries, northern France, Spain and the Atlantic, as well as the famous Armada campaign of 1588; whilst in Ireland the last Irish resistance to total English domination of the country was finally crushed towards the end of Elizabeth's reign. Combining original work and a synthesis of existing research, Paul E.J. Hammer offers a lively new examination of these long and costly, but ultimately successful, wars - military exploits which were to prove impossible acts to follow for Elizabeth's immediate successors.

Die Filmbesuche des Kinogehers lassen sich nicht als triviale Zerstreuung verstehen, sie offenbaren ihm die Einsamkeit und Hilflosigkeit seiner Suche. Doch jene Suchen, von denen die Filme erzählen, sind verfälscht: Der Held und Außenseiter endet glücklich als Konformist in der Menge. Die Mutter des Kinogehers, die ihr Kind der vornehmen Verwandtschaft überließ, als sie den einfachen zweiten Mann heiratete, eine Schafferin, die das hier und jetzt Notwendige ohne viel Worte tut, gibt dem Sohn einen Hinweis, als sie in ihrer unsentimentalen Art ihm von der Unrast und den Depressionen seines Vaters, des Arztes, berichtet. Schließlich findet der Kinogeher einen Weg, auf dem er zu suchen beginnen kann. Der Weg führt fort von leicht verdientem Geld und schönen Mädchen, fort auch von spektakulärer Leistung ... »Eine seltene wahre Geschichte« nennt der Üersetzer Peter Handke den Roman, den ersten des Autors, der 1961 mit dem National Book Award ausgezeichnet wurde und Walker Percy sofort bekannt machte.
