New Reviews for October on Reviews in History

Posted by dannymillum under Announcement | 0 Comments

BlockView

The following reviews of possible interest to followers of the Intelligencer were published in October in the Institute of Historical Research’s e-journal Reviews in History.

Our 800th review was a double-header, with Robert Poole tackling two histories of popular protest, Katrina Navickas’s Loyalism and Radicalism in Lancashire 1798-1815 and Adrian Randall’s Riotous Assemblies: Popular Protest in Hanoverian England.

Then Rhonda Semple (no. 801) reviews Alison Twells’ The Civilising Mission and the English Middle Class, 1792-1850: The ‘Heathen’ at Home and Overseas, a study of missionary philanthropy both abroad and back in England. Alison’s response can also be found here.

Glenn Richardson’s edited collection 'The Contending Kingdoms': England and France 1420-1700 spans three centuries of contact between the two nations, and is reviewed (no. 802) by Simon Lambe.

There is also an account by Paul Flewers of British attitudes to the Soviet Union under Stalin, critiqued (no. 803) by Geoffrey Foote with a response by the author.

On a different note, Peter Webster reviews (no. 804) two volumes on early modern church music, Beth Quitslund’s The Reformation in Rhyme. Sternhold, Hopkins and the English Metrical Psalter, 1547-1603, and Humanism and the Reform of Sacred Music in Early Modern England. John Merbecke the Orator and The Booke of Common Praier Noted (1550) by Hyun-Ah Kim.

Next the medieval prison is the focus of a short and ambitious work by G. Geltner, The Medieval Prison: A Social History, which has been reviewed for us (no. 805) by Jonathan Rose.

The first full-length work on the history of adoption in England (A Child for Keeps: the History of Adoption in England, 1918-45 by Jenny Keating) is the subject of a piece (no. 806) by Daniel Grey, for which there is also a response by the author.

The next book under review examines the contradictory relationship between Americans and the British royal family, as Adam Smith (no. 808) tackles Frank Prochaska’s The Eagle and the Crown: Americans and the British Monarchy.

In addition Carolyn Kitching discusses (no. 810) a new book analysing the relation between British foreign policy and the formation of the League of Nations – Peter Yearwood’s Guarantee of Peace: The League of Nations in British Policy 1914-1925.

Lastly there feature two very different books on British history. To mark the 25th anniversary publication of a new edition Vernon Bogdanor reviews (no. 813) a key work of modern constitutional history, John F. Naylor’s A Man and an Institution: Sir Maurice Hankey, the Cabinet Secretariat and the Custody of Cabinet Secrecy, while elsewhere Kristina Straub’s Domestic Affairs: Intimacy, Eroticism, and Violence Between Servants and Masters in Eighteenth-Century Britain is discussed by Sarah Lloyd (no. 814), for which there is a response by the author.

As always, all comments or suggestions should be sent to danny.millum@sas.ac.uk.

Next July, the annual conference of the Institute of Historical Research is taking as its theme environmental history. Over two days we shall feature a series of lectures, panels, policy forums, exhibitions and book launches devoted to this exciting field. We have lined up some of the world's top experts as keynote speakers: William Beinart, Alfred Crosby, Harriet Ritvo and Donald Worster, and shall be ensuring that there is full press coverage. We anticipate over 300 registrations.

I am writing now to give you advance warning of the event, at which I hope very much you will wish to join us in some shape of form. We will be back in the South Block of Senate House, ie: using the Beveridge Hall and the surrounding reception area and galleries for the main events. Do let us know as soon as possible if you would like to be involved, and please pass on news of the conference to your colleagues and graduate students. Details of the cfp are below.

As always, we are grateful for your support, and may I thank those NABCS colleagues particularly for helping to make Cities in 2009 such a success. The Anglo-American conference has been running at the IHR since 1921 and is the main national history event of the academic calendar. This is a wonderful opportunity for us and for you to communicate to the wider history community some of the findings and concerns of the environmental sector past, present and future.

I shall be attending the NACBS in Louisville next month and looking forward to updating you with more news on the AA2010 and other IHR developments then.

Yours sincerely,

(Professor) Miles Taylor, 
Director of the Institute of Historical Research
Anglo-American Conference 2010: Environments

Posted by dannymillum under Announcement | Tags: book review | 0 Comments

Area

The following reviews of interest to followers of The British and Irish Studies Intelligencer were published in August on the Institute of Historical Research’s e-journal Reviews in History.

First, Lynne Walker finds much of interest (no. 786) in Judith Neiswander’s new study of the popular literature of Victorian interior decoration, The Cosmopolitan Interior: Liberalism and the British Home 1870-1914.

Frank Turner then assesses (no. 787) Ruth Windscheffel’s attempt to find a new perspective on Gladstone through an examination of his reading habits, in Reading Gladstone.

We also have Hilda Kean’s critical take (no. 789) on A History of Attitudes and Behaviours toward Animals in Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century Britain. Anthropocentrism and the Emergence of Animals by Rob Boddice, whose reply can be found here.

Next Ariel Hessayon (no. 798) deals with a work which examines the period of gradual and informal Jewish readmission to England, Eliane Glaser’s Judaism without Jews: Philosemitism and Christian Polemic in Early Modern England. Her response can be read here.

Finally there is an amicable exchange (no. 799 and response) between Gareth Atkins and Richard Blake over the latter’s exploration of the increasing concern for spiritual and moral wellbeing in the British Navy in his Evangelicals in the Royal Navy, 1775–1815: Blue Lights and Psalm-Singers.

Surrey, TW9 4DU

10 September 2009

Dear Ms. Ceeney,

We write as the principal officers of the North American Conference on
British Studies to express our concern regarding the proposed changes to
TNA service prompted by budgetary cuts. While we realise that changes
are necessary given current economic conditions, and that TNA is
answerable to the British government and must implement costs-savings,
we join a considerable number of other interested groups and individuals
in questioning whether the cuts proposed are the wisest measures TNA
could take to reduce its expenditures.

We represent a large group of scholars, based mainly albeit not
exclusively in Canada and the United States, many of whom use the
archives on a regular basis and for whom it is a vital resource for
their scholarship and career advancement. We include in our numbers not
only those who hold academic positions but also independent scholars and
students working towards higher degrees. For all of these
constituencies, reduced access to TNA will, without question, be a
significant blow. Ours is a membership that, for the most part, can
visit London only for limited periods, and the reduction of hours that a
full day closing each week represents will hit them severely.

Likewise, the vagueness in TNA’s proposed staffing reductions is
worrying. Many of our younger members in particular benefit considerably
from the expertise of your specialist research staff. Reduction in their
numbers or availability will have a direct and powerful impact on
scholars unfamiliar with your holdings, and even on those already
experienced in using your collections.

All of us count TNA amongst the most valuable of the resources we use to
further our studies and researches in a variety of British studies
disciplines, and we are wholly supportive of the organisation. We write,
as so many others both in and beyond British shores have done, to urge a
wholesale reconsideration of the proposed cuts.

Yours sincerely,

Barbara Harris, President, North American Conference on British Studies;
Professor Emerita, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Philippa Levine, Vice-President and President-Elect, Professor,

New Reviews for August on Reviews in History

Posted by dannymillum under Announcement | 0 Comments

Area

The following reviews of interest to followers of The British and Irish Studies Intelligencer were published in August on the Institute of Historical Research’s e-journal Reviews in History.

Two of these are concerned with Ireland. The first (no. 777) consists of a fascinating exchange between Micheál Ó Siochrú (see his response here) and Jason Peacey regarding the former’s recent publication God’s Executioner: Oliver Cromwell and the Conquest of Ireland. Emmett O’Connor then reviews (no. 784) the recent biography of Jack Lynch (Jack Lynch: a Biography) by Dermot Keogh, challenging what he sees as the book’s attempts to rehabilitate the former Irish Taoiseach’s reputation.

In addition, Kevin Jefferys takes on (no. 780) Parties at War. Political Organisation in Second World War Britain, written by Andrew Thorpe, while Justin Champion reviews (no. 781) The Blasphemies of Thomas Aikenhead. Boundaries of Belief on the Eve of the Enlightenment, with the author Michael Graham responding here.

New Reviews for July on Reviews in History

Posted by dannymillum under Announcement | 0 Comments

Area

This month Reviews in History focusses on urban history and cities, co-inciding with the IHR's Anglo-American Conference on the same theme.

Three of these reviews are of London-centred studies. There is an assessment by Justin Colson (no. 766, with response) of an attempt to bring together archaeological, documentary and architectural evidence relating to the London Guildhall, namely The London Guildhall: an Archaeological History of a Neighbourhood from Early Medieval to Modern Times by David Bowsher et al.

Then Jacob Field reviews (no. 767) Lost Londons: Change, Crime and Control in the Capital City 1550–1660, Paul Griffiths’ analysis of crime and migrant workers in London during this period. The author’s response can be found here.

Lastly James Gregory (no. 771) takes on Guilty Money: The City of London in Victorian and Edwardian Culture by Ranald Michie (see here for his response), which looks at the way the Square Mile was portrayed in the fiction of this period.

There is also a review (no. 769) by Kate Bradley of Andrew Davies’ book The Gangs of Manchester, the inspiration for the play Angels With Manky Faces which opened last week.

As ever, please feel free to send all comments, including suggestions for books you would like to see on Reviews in History to the deputy editor Danny Millum at danny.millum@sas.ac.uk.

The North American Conference on British Studies/Southern Conference on British Studies has again arranged with The Scholar’s Choice to manage the combined book exhibit for our annual meeting taking place November 6-8 in Louisville, Kentucky. It will be possible for your recently-published books to be included in their display.  Please refer to the guidelines below:

“Any members interested in having their book displayed at the upcoming NACBS/SCBS meeting should contact their publisher as soon as possible.  Please keep in mind that the publishers pay a fee to display with The Scholar’s Choice and may not have the marketing budget necessary to honor all requests, particularly for older titles. Reservations from the publishers will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis so reserving early is highly recommended.  Please note that The Scholar’s Choice displays on behalf of the publishers and ALL requests must come from them, not the author.  The person who handles reservations at The Scholar’s Choice is Debby Pitts. Your publisher may reach her at djpitts@scholarschoice.com or at 585-262-2048 x.108.”

The following reviews of interest to readers of the British and Irish Studies Intelligencer have been published in the last month on the Institute of Historical Research's e-journal Reviews in History.

Two of these are on Victorian England, with Victoria Le Fevre reviewing Kathleen Callanan Martin's Hard and Unreal Advice: Mothers, Social Science and the Victorian Poverty Experts, and Stuart Jones taking on The Invention of Altruism: Making Moral Meanings in Victorian Britain by Thomas Dixon.

On a different tack Sonja Levsen reviews Thomas Weber’s Our Friend ‘The Enemy’: Elite Education in Britain and Germany Before World War 1, which compares the university cultures of the two countries in these key years.

We also have a review by Ingrid Tague of Johanna Rickman’s study of extra-marital sex in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, Love, Lust, and License in Early Modern England: Illicit Sex and the Nobility, as well as Kate O’Malley’s recent publication Ireland, India and Empire: Indo-Irish Radical Connections, 1919–64, which draws out the parallels and connections between the independence struggles in both countries, and is reviewed here by Keith Jeffery.

Finally Andrew Dilley's review article surveys two books taking new historical approaches to Australia and Canada's experiences of empire, namely Australia's Empire edited by Deryck M. Schreuder and Stuart Ward and Canada and the British Empire, edited by P. Buckner.

Dear H-Albion List Members,

Many thanks to everyone who has submitted panel and paper proposals for the
2009 NACBS Meeting in Louisville.  I'm delighted to see a range of high
quality submissions across themes and chronologies from scholars at all
levels in their careers.  I know that a number of you are working diligently
to complete panel proposals; others have recently begun their semesters.  To
facilitate submission at this busy time, I'd like to extend the due date for
panel and paper proposals to FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 13, while still encouraging
you to get your proposals in as soon as possible.  Full panels are
encouraged, but individual papers will be considered, too.

Thanks, too, for your patience with the new online system.  The system is
working, but it does not give you a receipt confirmation.  If you wish to
allay concerns about receipt or to make corrections, please write to me
after submission, and I will reply as soon as I can.

For those who are still looking to complete panels, I understand that
H-Albion and the new NACBS facebook page have worked wonders for many.
Please also send any remaining questions about panel formation my way.

Sincerely yours,

NACBS Membership Renewal

Posted by jaskelly under Announcement | Tags: harris, membership, NACBS | 0 Comments

Area

Now that the holiday season has passed and we've started a new year--one I
like to think of as a year of miracles, beginning with the rescue of
the passengers from the plane that landed in the Hudson--I'd like to remind
you that it is time to renew your membership in the NACBS for 2009. The
miracle I'd like to see is a 100% renewal in the first quarter of the year.

Your officers and executive committee are doing everything they can to make
your membership ever more valuable to you. In addition to receiving the
Journal of British Studies, we have made it easier for you to have access to
the Institute of Historical Research in London if your institution doesn't
belong and are pursuing arrangements with presses to give you discounts all
year round. And in addition there is all the support we give to graduate
students and prizes for the superb work you produce year after year.

Have a wonderful 2009. I look forward to seeing you in Louisville in
November.
