Culture and society in the Stuart Restoration : literature, drama, history by Gerald M MacLean( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What specifically distinguishes Restoration culture and society from what went before and came after? And how did early modern British women and men accommodate themselves to the dramatic historical changes of the seventeenth century? This study, which brings together recent work by leading historians as well as literary and cultural critics of the period, shows how the Restoration produced the concept of a national literature crucial to a new nationalist cultural enterprise: questions of national identity and difference, of what it meant to be English or British or both, came to be framed in terms of international trade and imperial ambition; and religious and royal authority gave way before the advance of a secular literary culture geared to the demands of a developing commercial and imperial nation
The country and the city revisited : England and the politics of culture, 1550-1850( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1550 and 1850, the great age of mercantilism, the English people remade themselves from a disparate group of individuals and localities divided by feudal loyalties, dialects and even languages, into an imperial power. Examining literature, art, and social life, and returning to ground first explored by Raymond Williams in his seminal work, The Country and the City Revisited traces this transformation. It shows that what Williams figured as an urban-rural dichotomy can now be more satisfactorily grasped as a permeable boundary. While the movement of sugar, tobacco, and tea became ever more deeply interfused with the movement of people, through migration and the slave trade, these commodities initiated new conceptions of space, time, and identity. Spanning the traditional periods of the Renaissance and Romanticism, this collection of essays offers interdisciplinary perspectives on central issues of early modern English history."--BOOK JACKET
Materialist feminisms by Donna Landry( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Materialist Feminisms investigates the crucial theoretical and political debates that have determined the course of British and American feminism over the last thirty years. As intellectual terrain has shifted during these decades from Marxism to cultural materialism and poststructuralist literary theory, questions of race and ethnicity, sexuality, postcoloniality, and green politics have converged and sometimes collided with the categories within feminism, but analyze many of the most important texts and movements of contemporary cultural theory. Offering not so much a unified history as an analysis of important moments within these debates, this book examines the work of such feminist theorists as MichUle Barrett, Judith Butler, Rosalind Coward, Donna Haraway, bell hooks, the m/f collective, Tania Modleski, Jacqueline Rose, Gayle Rubin, Hortense Spillers, and Gayatri Spivak. Materialist Feminisms includes new, exemplary readings of feminist detective, African-American, and postcolonial fiction, three kinds of textures commodity currently fetishized in the literary marketplace. What might the success of these kinds of writing signify about politics and desire in contemporary Anglo-American culture? Demonstrating how the poststructuralist critique of essences and identities need not end in a complete paralysis of political action, as has sometimes been claimed, Materialist Feminisms argues that feminism, socialism, and deconstruction are not theoretical dead ends, but names for unfinished business."--Back cover
The rise of oriental travel : English visitors to the Ottoman Empire, 1580-1720 by Gerald M MacLean( Book )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book retells the stories of how four seventeenth-century Englishmen journeyed around the Ottoman Mediterranean, from Istanbul through the Levant and Holy Land into Egypt, and across North Africa to the Regency of Algiers. Contrary to the hostile declamations of Protestant preachers, they all found much to admire, from the multi-culturalism of the Ottoman system to the food, weather and styles of life. Beginning with Thomas Dallam, the skilled artisan sent by Queen Elizabeth to present his clockwork organ to Sultan Mehmed III in 1599, Professor Gerald MacLean subsequently examines William Biddulph, chaplain to the Protestant expatriates of Aleppo, Henry Blount, a self-appointed intelligencer who was knighted in 1641, and 'T. S.' whose libidinal Adventures in Algerian captivity mark the nation's taste for historical and romantic fiction. The book closes with an examination of evidence for British women travelling in the Ottoman empire before Lady Mary Wortley Montagu." "This is the first book to consider the contemporary historical setting of these visits as seen from the Ottoman side, and uses previously unpublished sources to show the importance of archival research for the study of travel literature. As the author explains, 'I have travelled in the footsteps of all four and have noted some instances of curious coincidence.'"--Jacket
Britain and the Islamic world, 1558-1713 by Gerald M MacLean( Book )

16 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before they had an empire in the East, the British travelled into the Islamic world to pursue trade and to form strategic alliances against the Catholic powers of France and Spain. First-hand encounters with Muslims, Jews, Greek Orthodox, and other religious communities living together under tolerant Islamic rule changed forever the way Britons thought about Islam, just as the goods they imported from Islamic countries changed forever the way they lived. Britain and the Islamic World tells the story of how, for a century and a half, merchants and diplomats travelled from Morocco to Istanbul, from Aleppo to Isfahan, and from Hormuz to Surat, and discovered a world that was more fascinating than fearful. -- Book jacket

Re-orienting the Renaissance : cultural exchanges with the East by Gerald M MacLean( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores how the Renaissance entailed a global exchange of goods, skills and ideas between East and West, and challenges the accepted view that the rebirth of European civilisation came from roots in classical Greece and Imperial Rome
Looking East : English writing and the Ottoman Empire before 1800 by Gerald M MacLean( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and Turkish and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looking East explores early modern English attitudes toward the Ottoman Empire in the seventeenth century. To a nation just arriving on the international scene, the Ottoman Empire was at once the great enemy and scourge of Christendom, and at the same time the fabulously wealthy and magnificent court from which the sultan ruled over three continents with his great and powerful army. By taking the imaginative, literary and poetic writing about the Ottoman Turks and putting it alongside contemporary historical documents, the book shows that fascination with the Ottoman Empire shaped how the English thought about and represented their own place within the world as a nation with increasing imperial ambitions of its own

Abdullah Gül & the making of the new Turkey by Gerald M MacLean( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on original research, including personal interviews with President Abdullah Gül as well as his wife and close circle of colleagues and friends, this fascinating account offers readers a portrait of a man who has been at the heart of the political, economic and cultural developments that have brought Turkey to international prominence in recent years. In 2002 Abdullah Gül's democratically-elected party gained power and challenged Turkey's republican and secular legacy, and shortly after Gül led Turkey's attempts to receive an accession date for the European Union. In 2007 he became the first president of Turkey with a background in Islamic politics--causing political commentators to hail his victory as a "new era in Turkish politics"--and he has, ever since, been a major figure in Turkey's diplomatic relationships in the Middle East and international political arena. Gerald MacLean's absorbing biography of this significant politician throws light on important episodes of Turkey's recent history." --Publisher's description
