Staging the Revolution : drama, reinvention and history, 1647-72 by Rachel Willie( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Staging the revolution offers a reappraisal of the weight and volume of theatrical output during the Commonwealth and early Restoration, both in terms of live performances and performances on the paper stage. It argues that the often-cited notion that 1642 marked an end to theatrical production in England until the playhouses were reopened in 1660 is a product of post-Restoration re-writing of the English civil wars and the representations of royalists and parliamentarians that emerged in the 1640s and 1650s. These retellings of recent events in dramatic form mean that drama is central to civil war discourse. Staging the Revolution examines the ways in which drama was used to rewrite the civil war and commonwealth period and demonstrates that, far from marking a clear cultural demarcation from the theatrical output of the early seventeenth century, the Restoration is constantly reflecting back on the previous thirty years
Exploring Russia in the Elizabethan commonwealth : the Muscovy Company and Giles Fletcher, the elder (1546-1611) by Felicity Jane Stout( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring Russia in the Elizabethan Commonwealth tells the story of English relations with Russia, from the 'strange and wonderfull discoverie' of the land and Elizabeth I's correspondence with Ivan the Terrible, to the corruption of the Muscovy Company and the Elizabethan regime's censorship of politically sensitive representations of Russia. Focusing on the life and works of Giles Fletcher, the elder, ambassador to Russia in 1588, this work explores two popular themes in Elizabethan history: exploration, travel and trade and late Elizabethan political culture. By analysing the pervasive languages of commonwealth, corruption and tyranny found in both the Muscovy Company accounts and in Fletcher's writings on Russia, this monograph explores how Russia was a useful tool for Elizabethans to think with when they contemplated the nature of government and the changing face of monarchy in the late Elizabethan regime. It will appeal to academics and students of Elizabethan political culture and literary studies, as well as those of early modern travel and trade

Communicating the history of medicine : perspectives on audiences and impact by Sven Widmalm( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<I>Communicating the History of Medicine</i> critically assesses the idea of audience and communication in medical history. This collection offers a range of case studies on academic outreach from historical and current perspectives. It questions the kind of linear thinking often found in policy or research assessment, instead offering a more nuanced picture of both the promises and pitfalls of engaging audiences for research in the humanities. For whom do academic researchers in the humanities write? For academics and, indirectly, at least for students, but there are hopes that work reaches broader audiences and that it will have an impact on policy or among professional experts outside of the humanities. Today impact is more and more discussed in the context of research assessment. Seen from a media theoretical perspective, impact may however be described as a case of 'audiencing' and the creation of audiences by means of media technologies

Progress and pathology : medicine and culture in the nineteenth century by Melissa Dickson( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conditions such as stress, burnout, overwork and fatigue are central preoccupations of our era, but they have a longer history, that gives depth to contemporary debates. Similar problems were diagnosed in the nineteenth century, as popular and medical understandings of the mind and body were challenged and reframed by the politics and structures of 'modern life'. Engaging with current scholarship on the history of medicine, science, and technology, disability studies, childhood, and consumer culture, this collaborative volume explores how emotional and physical ailments of the nineteenth century were often understood as uniquely 'modern'. Sally Shuttleworth, Melissa Dickson, and Emilie Taylor-Brown gather work by leading international scholars to explore changing perceptions of health and disease in the context of the burgeoning global modernities of the nineteenth century. Case studies from Britain, America, France, Germany, Finland, Bengal, China, and the South Pacific, demonstrate that a multiplicity of medical practices were organised around new and evolving definitions of the modern self. Essays within the collection examine the ways in which cancer, suicide, and social degeneration were seen as products of the stresses and strains of 'new' ways of living. Others explore the legal, institutional, and intellectual changes that contributed to both positive and negative understandings of modern medical practice. Ultimately, the volume's integrative and holistic approach to notions of disease disrupts the frequent compartmentalisation of psychiatric, environmental, and literary histories in present practice to offer new ways of contextualising the problems of modernity facing us in the twenty-first century." -- Back cover
The road : an ethnography of (im)mobility, space, and cross-border infrastructures in the Balkans by Dimitris Dalakoglou( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an ethnographic and historical study of the main Albania-Greece highway. But more than an ethnography on the road, it is an anthropology of the road. Highways are part of an explicit cultural-material nexus that includes houses, urban architecture and vehicles. Complex socio-political phenomena such as EU border security, nationalist politics, post-Cold War capitalism and financial crises all leave their mark in the concrete. This book explores anew classical anthropological and sociological categories of analysis in direct reference to infrastructure, providing unique insights into the political and cultural processes that took place across Europe after the Cold War. More specifically, it sheds light on political and economic relationships in the Balkans during the socialist post-Cold War period, focusing especially on Albania, one of the most under-researched countries in the region. Categories such as the house, domestic life, the city, kinship, money, boundaries, nationalism, statecraft, geographic mobility, and distance--to name but a few--seem very different when seen from, or on, the road."--
Managing diabetes, managing medicine : chronic disease and clinical bureaucracy in post-war Britain by Martin D Moore( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"<I>Managing diabetes, managing medicine</i> examines the emergence of managed medicine in Britain. Through its study of diabetes care in the twentieth century, this book offers the first historical monograph to explore how the decision-making and labour of medical professionals became subject to bureaucratic regulation and managerial oversight. Whereas much existing literature has cast health care management as either a political imposition or an assertion of medical control, this work positions managerial medicine as a co-constructed venture. Although driven by different - even conflicting - motives, doctors and nurses, national professional and patient bodies, British government agencies, and influential international organisations were all integral to the creation of managerial systems in Britain; all working within a context of considerable professional, political, technological, economic and cultural change. By focusing on changes within the management of a single disease at the forefront of broader developments, <i>Managing diabetes, managing medicine</i> is able to tie together British developments across a number of sites at different scales of change, from the very local innovations of single towns to the debates of specialists and professional leaders at international levels. Drawing on a broad range of archival materials, published journals and textbooks, newspapers and oral histories, this book develops fresh insights into the history of managed healthcare, the NHS, and post-war government more broadly. Providing an important window onto crucial features of modern British medicine and society, it will be of interest to scholars and students across a range of historical, sociological and political scientific disciplines." -- Back cover
Enacting the Bible in medieval and early modern drama( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume offers new perspectives on the crucial role played by the Bible in medieval culture and in the wake of the Reformation across Europe. The thirteen chapters open up new horizons for the study of biblical drama by putting special emphasis on periodisation, the intersections of biblical narrative and performance, and the strategies employed by playwrights to rework and adapt the biblical source material.The book is based on a framework of multitemporality, transnationality, and the modalities of performance and form in relation to the uses of the Bible in late-medieval and early modern drama. These aspects are not to be treated as separate or distinct phenomena, but are intertwined: particular modalities of performance evolve, adapt, and are recreated as they intersect with different historical times and circumstances. These intersections pertain to aspects such as dramatic traditions, confessional and religious rites, dogmas and debates, conceptualisations of performance and form, and audience response - whenever the Bible is evoked for performative purposes.Stressing the presence of both biblical and contemporary concerns in the periods under discussion, <i>Enacting the Bible </i>conceives of biblical drama as a central participant in the dynamic struggle to both interpret and translate the Bible. The double focus on formal elements and the multilayeredness of time allows us to cast the idea of the Bible as a generator of meaning into sharper relief." -- Back cover
Shakespeare by McBean by Adrian Woodhouse( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shakespeare by McBean collects 300 images, many never before published, taken by the renowned photographer Angus McBean. Incorporating images from every one of Shakespeare's plays performed at the RSC, with some from the Old Vic, between the years 1945-62, it is a veritable who's who of the British stage. Richard Burton, Vivien Leigh, Robert Donat, Alec Guiness, Michael Redgrave, Peggy Ashcroft, Laurence Olivier, Edith Evans, Paul Scofield, Diana Rigg, Anthony Quayle, Charles Laughton, John Gielgud, Peter O'Toole and Dorothy Tutin are just some of the names that appear. Angus McBean was an exceptional talent, whether he was transforming the photography of rehearsals, inspiring the Beatles, or entertaining his admireres with his light-hearted espousal of surrealism in portraiture. In a career lasting half a century his influence can be seen in everything from advertising to pop culture.-- Publisher's description

Thomas 'Jupiter' Harris : spinning dark intrigue at Covent Garden Theatre, 1767-1820 by Warren L Oakley( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first biography of Thomas Harris. Until now, little has been known about his life. He was most visible as the man who controlled Covent Garden theatre for nearly five decades, one of only two venues in London allowed by law to perform spoken drama. But this career was only one of many: he became the confidant of George III, a philanthropist, sexual suspect, and a brothel owner in the underworld of Covent Garden. While deeply involved in Pitt the Younger's government, Harris worked as a 'spin doctor' to control the release of government news. As novelists created elaborate storylines with fictional intriguers lurking in the shadows, Harris was the real thing. In this lively recreation of life in Georgian London - social, political, sexual, theatrical - his career intersects many of the hidden worlds of the eighteenth century. This narrative of detection brings together a hoard of newly discovered manuscripts to construct his many lives." -- Publisher
Vaccinating Britain : mass vaccination and the public since the Second World War by Gareth Millward( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vaccinating Britain shows how the British public played a central role in the development of vaccination policy since the Second World War. It explores the relationship between the public and public health through five key vaccines - diphtheria, smallpox, poliomyelitis, whooping cough and measles-mumps-rubella (MMR). It reveals that while the British public has embraced vaccination as a safe, effective and cost-efficient form of preventative medicine, demand for vaccination and trust in the authorities that provide it has ebbed and flowed according to historical circumstances. It is the first book to offer a long-term perspective on vaccination across different vaccine types. This history provides context for students and researchers interested in present-day controversies surrounding public health immunisation programmes. Historians of the post-war British welfare state will find valuable insight into changing public attitudes towards institutions of government and vice versa
Five Elizabethan progress entertainments : an annotated modern-spelling edition by Leah Scragg( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Designed to introduce the student or general reader to a largely unfamiliar area of Elizabethan theatrical activity, Five Elizabethan progress entertainments focuses on a group of entertainments mounted for the monarch in the closing years of her reign. Richly annotated and prefaced by a substantial introduction, the texts enable an understanding of the motives underlying not only the progress itself, but the choice of locations the monarch elected to visit, and the personal and political preoccupations of those with whom she determined to stay. Selected for their diversity, the entertainments exhibit the tensions underlying some royal visits, the lavish expenditure entailed for the monarch's hosts, and the overlap in terms of both material and authorship between the progress entertainments and more widely studied products of the sixteenth-century stage."--Page 4 of cover
Containing trauma : nursing work in the First World War by Christine E Hallett( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who were the military nurses of the Great War, and what did they really do? In this book, Christine Hallett explores the nature of the practices developed by nurses and their volunteer-assistants during the First World War. She argues that nurses found meaning in their complex and stressful work by identifying it as a process of 'containing trauma'. Beginning with a discussion of the current literature on the social and cultural position of nurses at the outbreak of the war, and on their importance to the war effort, the book explores a range of nursing scenarios and practices, examining the physical, emotional and spiritual care and support these women offered to their patients." "Broad in its scope and detailed in its research, the book analyses the work of nurses from Britain, Australia. New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and the United States of America. It draws on highly personal writing, using letters and diaries drawn from archives and libraries throughout the world alongside published diaries and semi-fictional accounts." "This wide-ranging study explores a range of treatment scenarios, from the Western and Eastern Fronts to the Eastern Mediterranean, Mesopotamia and India, and considers both the efforts of nurses to provide physical, emotional and moral containment to their patients. and the work they did to maintain their own physical and emotional integrity."--Jacket
