Cyprus Historical and Contemporary Studies

Cyprus has had an eventful and troubled history for such a small island state. From antiquity to modern times, Cypriots have formed an interesting melange, where different peoples in terms of race, religion, ethnicity, class, language and other determinants, have shared a common homeland, collective experiences, popular traditions and often social, political and economic inequalities and hardships. Cyprus and its inhabitants have had a multi-faceted relationship with various civilisations and empires, ancient, medieval and modern, a relationship that has sometimes been fraught but at other time...

Historical and Pedagogical Issues in History: Insights from the Great Lakes History Conference

The Great Lakes History Conference has been running for over 40 years, and during that time it has been fortunate to have some of the world’s finest historians and lecturers illuminating many of history’s most intriguing, and in some cases intractable, problems.

This series continues to address current issues facing both the professio...

Inverting History with Microhistory

Inverting History with Microhistory is a series of edited volumes in which scholars question the allocation and appropriation of power by ordinary individuals.

Studies in Intellectual History: Culture, Politics and Society in the English-Speaking World since 1870

Intellectual history, though closely related to the history of philosophy and the history of ideas, seeks to contextualise those ideas and to study them in terms of the debates to which they were a contribution. If individuals and “influences” are important, the main focus here is on the ways in which the work of various intellectuals was applied, and how it subsequently affected or modified the political and cultural development of the society in which that work was produced. The main argument, then, underpinning the series is that ideas should not be divorced from the people and the society who...
