The Gender of Debt

This book demonstrates, from a historical and an economic point of view, how the female contribution has been so determinant in the success of our species, and how it is linked to male dominance.

The James Losh Diaries, 1802-1833

Diaries offer us the rare privilege of seeing the world through someone else’s eyes, and James Losh’s writings spanning the period 1802 to 1833 do just that. To describe them simply as “weather diaries” is, however, to overlook the wider range of his critical and always informed eye. Assuredly, weather is the main focus, but he see...

The Origin of Geometry in India

This book is the first complete study of the origin of geometry in India. In Ancient India, brick-built fire-altars (citi-s) were ordained for the Soma sacrifice, a Vedic rite, which led to the compilation of rule-books for making and arranging bricks. These volumes, called Śulbasūtra-s, represent the first available texts of both ...

However, while Preston Brooks remains, as described by one historian, “an obscure...

This book recuperates the narrative of Andrew Jeptha, a Cape Town-born boxer who was the first black fighter to win a British welterweight title in 1907. As a result of that victory, Jeptha was permanently blinded, and took to preparing a book titled A South African Boxer in Britain (1910). This volume explores the relationship bet...

Transatlantic Malagueñas and Zapateados in Music, Song and Dance

Transatlantic Malagueñas and Zapateados is an exploration of two fandango dances, recording the circulations of people, imagery, music, and dance across what were once the Spanish and Portuguese Empires. Although these dance-musics seem to be mirror images, the unbreachable space between them reflects the political fault-lines alon...

By adopting Social Movement Theories (SMT) as a basic framework to analyze the 2011 uprisings in the Middle East, this book disentangles the role of alternative networks and other forms of political conflict with reference to the Egyptian case in mobilising and forming a potential revolutionary movement. During the 2011 uprisings i...
