Walking Shakespeare's London : 20 original walks in and around London by Nicholas Robins( Book )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 348 libraries worldwide
"Shakespeare's associations with Stratford-upon-Avon are well known, but few know that he was equally at home in London, the city in which he worked and lived for much of his adult life. London's streets, inns and theatres form a backdrop to many of Shakespeare's plays and much of his poetry, showing how deeply the city influenced his work." "This book brings together 20 walks exploring 16th century London, including Westminster, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Globe Theatre, St. James's Palace, the Tower of London and Hampton Court." "As well as exploring the London that Shakespeare knew, the walks also cover the theaters of modern London, including the West End, the Barbican Centre, the South Bank Centre and the Young and Old Vics, where great directors have successfully staged Shakespeare's plays over many centuries." "Shakespeare expert Nicholas Robins guides and entertains throughout, taking us back in time to an era when theater dominated artistic life. Using excerpts from Shakespeare's plays, he reveals some of the inns where Falstaff drinks and carouses in Henry IV and shows the brooding darkness exerted by The Tower in Richard III." "This guide is illustrated with specially-commissioned full-color photographs and is enriched with atmospheric 16th century engravings. Each walk is supported with an easy-to-follow map highlighting places of interest along each route."--BOOK JACKET

Burton on melancholy ( file )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 107 libraries worldwide
Journey through the subject of melancholia in an easily accessible volume touching on topics from love and sex to religion and geographyBurton's The Anatomy of Melancholy is one of the great but unclassifiable prose works in English literature: diverting, delightfully rambling, and filled with recondite learning and peculiar facts and speculations. Burton, frustrated at the stagnant, disorderly society in which he found himself, became convinced that the problems of England lay in its inclination to melancholy. This is the starting-point, or pretext, for a hugely wide-ranging survey of the causes, descriptions (and cures) of melancholy. Burton's unsystematic approach to his subject contributes greatly to its charm and interest, for much of it is composed of digressions that are, in effect, self-contained essays on all manner of subjects: cosmology, religious fanaticism, devils and spirits, food, love, and sex

Genocide and millennialism in Upper Peru the Great Rebellion of 1780-1782 by Nicholas A Robins( file )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Exploring one of the least studied genocides in post-conquest South America, Robins calls into question many of the central assumptions currently held by genocide scholars. Victims of genocide usually lack the organization and weaponry to battle their enemies. During the 1780-1782 Great Rebellion in Peru and Upper Peru (now Bolivia), however, the Indian revolutionaries faced the better-organized and armed loyalist army. Whereas genocidal policies are usually characterized by centralized leadership, the Great Rebellion was highly fragmented and confederational in nature, undercutting the widely
