Lobbying HitlerIndustrial Associations between Democracy and Dictatorship
“This is an impressively designed and clearly written book that makes a fundamental contribution to the role of business in the Third Reich and advances the debate about the ‘room for maneuver’ under the Nazi regime.” · Jeffrey Fear, University of Glasgow
Parliament and ParliamentarismA Comparative History of a European Concept
Edited by Pasi Ihalainen, Cornelia Ilie, and Kari Palonen
“The great challenge for a book of this kind is to maintain cohesion among a multiplicity of authors and perspectives, and in this it has been entirely successful. Its overall framework of four principles that distinguish parliamentarism is clear and convincing, and its openness to different methodological approaches enables contributors to transcend traditional disciplinary limits.” · Olivier Rozenberg, Sciences Po
The Anatomy of MurderEthical Transgressions and Anatomical Science during the Third Reich
“This study is written with considerable knowledge, energy, and engagement. It contains much that is fresh and new in terms of research and has the advantage of an insider’s understanding: the author deploys her expertise as a practitioner-historian to good effect.” · Paul Weindling, Oxford Brookes University

Slavery and Antislavery in Spain's Atlantic EmpireEdited by Josep M. Fradera and Christopher Schmidt-Nowara†
“This important collection of essays illustrates the rich work about Spanish slavery and antislavery that has been produced recently in Spain and the United States. Spanish abolitionism is viewed in the Spanish imperial context, its specific relation to slavery, and its connection to broader Atlantic processes. The volume will surely inspire continued debate among scholars in Europe and the United States, as well, hopefully, as Latin America.” · New West Indian Guide
New in Paperback
Girlhood and the Politics of PlaceEdited by Claudia Mitchell and Carrie Rentschler
"Much of the literature in the field can fall into romanticizing girls; essentialist notions of girls based on age-as-fact, race, geography, or socioeconomics; or theoretical constructs that mirror popular cultural conceptions rather than challenging them. This text avoids these traps. The chapters take up a significant social and political consideration in the lives and subjectivities of girls and the construction of ideas of girls." · Susan Talburt, Georgia State University

The Men with the Movie CameraThe Poetics of Visual Style in Soviet Avant-Garde Cinema of the 1920s
“Cavendish's carefully researched book argues that men like Eduard Tisse, Anatolii Golovnia, and Danylo Demuts'kyi, among others, should be acknowledged as coauthors, in terms of visual styles, of the films on which they worked. [It] offers exacting descriptions of many shots, developing an appreciation for the styles cultivated by these camera artists despite differences in subject matter or dramatic theme. Though he may at times downplay the director's role in determining how shots were jointly shaped, Cavendish has written one of the most original works of scholarship on Soviet film practice since David Bordwell's brilliant The Cinema of Eisenstein. Summing Up: Essential.” · Choice
Conflict and Society
Advances in Research
Publishing peer-reviewed articles by international scholars, Conflict and Society expands the field of conflict studies by using ethnographic inquiry to establish new fields of research and interdisciplinary collaboration. An opening special section presents general articles devoted to a topic or region followed by a section featuring conceptual debates on key problems in the study of organized violence. Review articles and topical overviews offer navigational assistance across the vast and varied terrain of conflict research, and comprehensive reviews of new books round out each volume. With special attention paid to ongoing debates on the politics and ethics of conflict studies research, including military-academic cooperation, Conflict and Society will be an essential forum for scholars, researchers, and policy makers in the fields of anthropology, sociology, political science, and development studies.

Sacrifice and RebirthThe Legacy of the Last Habsburg War
Edited by Mark Cornwall and John Paul Newman
“This volume of fascinating chapters will be welcomed by scholars and students of East Central Europe as well as by those interested in the legacy and memory of the Great War. Far too little scholarly work has engaged questions about war veterans, public grappling with the meaning of wartime sacrifice, and the memorialization of the dead in the new states that arose from the ashes of the Habsburg Monarchy.” · Daniel Unowsky, University of Memphis
