The Sultan s Renegades

Consequently, renegades were not only found—and made, for that matter—in the Mediterranean, but also in Asia and the New World.6 In popular understanding today, the term renegade has all but lost its religious connotations.

The figure of the renegade - a European Christian or Jew who had converted to Islam and was now serving the Ottoman sultan - is omnipresent in all genres produced by those early modern Christian Europeans who wrote about the Ottoman Empire.0"The sultan's renegades" inserts these 'foreign' converts into the context of Ottoman elite life to reorient the discussion of these individuals away from the present focus on their exceptionality, towards a qualified appreciation of their place in the Ottoman imperial enterprise and the Empire's relations with its neighbours in Christian Europe. Drawing heavily on Central European sources, this study highlights the deep political, religious, and cultural entanglements between the Ottoman Empire and Christian Europe beyond the Mediterranean Basin as the 'shared world' par excellence.

Shortlisted for the Theatre Book Prize 2021 This is the vital story of the amateur theatre as it developed from the medieval guilds to the modern theatre of Ayckbourn and Pinter, with a few mishaps and missed cues along the way. Michael Coveney – a former member of Ilford's Renegades - tells this tale with a charm and wit that will have you shouting out for an encore. This is the first account of its kind, packed with anecdote and previously unheard stories, and it shows how amateur theatre is more than a popular pastime: it has been endemic to the birth of the National Theatre, as well as a seedbed of talent and a fascinating barometer and product of the times in which we live. Some of the companies Coveney delves into – all taking centre stage in this entertaining and lively book - include the Questors and Tower Theatre in London; Birmingham's Crescent Theatre; The Little Theatre in Bolton, where Ian McKellen was a schoolboy participant; Lincolnshire's Broadbent Theatre, co-founded by Jim Broadbent's father and other conscientious objectors at the end of World War II; and Cornwall's stunning cliff-top Minack.

One of them was the zealous Japanese soldier. The incident brings about a chain of events that leaves the reader wondering...who are the true renegades? The Marines or the Japanese?

The archaeologist couldn’t be happier. He finally has permission to return to his old site; he can complete his research before he retires. But then he finds a box with a date that is 300 years too old for where he is digging. Worse yet, the box contains documents that one would only expect to have come from Constantine’s Library. If they are authentic, it could mean that 2000 years of history need to be rewritten. He solicits the aid of two friends, who discover that a strange map from a London gallery and murders in Boston, London, Paris and New York are tied to this box.

Accusations of betrayal played a significant role in the shaping and maintenance of solidarity in socialist and other modern radical political organisations in Australia and Britain. This fascinating study of trust and betrayal focuses on case studies of 6 'rats' or renegades: H.H. Champion; William Trenwith; John Burns; Albert Victor Grayson; Adela Pankhurst Walsh; and Ada Holman. Renegades and Rats will appeal to scholars of history and sociology alike, and to anyone intersted in the subject of trust: what it is, and how it is lost.

Rogue states pursue weapons of mass destruction, support terrorism, violate human rights, engage in acts of territorial aggression, and pose a threat to the international community. In this timely book, Miroslav Nincic unravels the complex issues and policy choices regarding states that challenge international society's espoused interests and values. Nincic offers a systematic account of the genesis, trajectory, and motivations of renegade regimes. He assesses the effectiveness of sanctions and military responses and discusses how the pursuit of policies that defy international norms is often motivated by a regime's desire for greater domestic control. He provocatively argues that comprehensive economic sanctions can ultimately help a renegade regime strengthen its grip on power. Nincic also argues that force or the threat of force against a rogue state can trigger a protective reflex among its citizens, inspiring them to rally around the government's goals and values. As conventional approaches to international relations become obsolete, Renegade Regimes provides new and necessary frameworks and perspectives.
