Contemporary Hispanic Poets:

Cultural Production in the Global, Digital Age
John Burns
ISBN: 9781604978940

"This is an excellent book on a very interesting topic. It is a well-conceived, well-researched, and well-written study covering a number of very significant poets in the Spanish-speaking world. Good scholarly books on poetry are rare. Good books on Hispanic poetry, transatlantic in content, and with a superb combination of textual analysis and theoretical reflection are even rarer, and this one belongs to the latter category." – Juan Egea, Professor of Spanish , University of Wisconsin-Madison Read More..

The British Imperial Pyramid of Power:

Manning an Empire in the Long Nineteenth Century, 1800–1914
Colin Newbury
ISBN: 9781604978933

“This book displays a masterful command of the history of the British Empire during the period. It encompasses a wide range of detail from the complex history of British imperialism and combines this with a systematic analysis of subordinate categories and issues. The white settlement colonies (future dominions) of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and South Africa are all dealt with here, as is also British India, Sub-Saharan Africa, the West Indies Southeast Asia, and Oceania. This monumental study has a wide sweep both over chronological time and geographically.” – Raymond E. Dumett, Purdue University Read More..

Fantasy and Science Fiction Medievalisms:

From Isaac Asimov to A Game of Thrones
Helen Young
ISBN: 9781604978964

Science fiction and fantasy, with their necessarily impossible worlds, are perhaps the ultimate in neomedievalism. Earlier volumes have examined some of the ways in which contemporary popular culture re-imagines the Middle Ages, offering broad overviews, but none considers fantasy, science fiction, or the two together. The focused approach of this collection provides a directed pathway into the myriad medievalisms of modern popular culture. By engaging directly with genre(s), this book acknowledges that medievalist creative texts and practices do not occur in a vacuum, but are shaped by multiple cultural forces and concerns; medievalism is never just about the Middle Ages.
