De-Radicalisation in the UK Prevent Strategy: Security, Identity and Religion

M. S. Elshimi

De-Radicalisation in the UK Prevent Strategy: Security, Identity and Religion by M. S. Elshimi

This book examines de-radicalisation policy in the UK and addresses the contradictions evident in the conceptualisation and practice of de-radicalisation.

It explores three main themes that touch upon some of the most pressing issues of our day: security, identity and religion. Situated within the Prevent strand of the UK Counter-Terrorism policy and administered by the police through the 'Channel Programme', policymakers have promoted de-radicalisation as a vital instrument in the fight against terrorism. Despite the political and legal importance of de-radicalisation as an instrument of counter-terrorism,...

Charles Pelham Villiers: Aristocratic Victorian Radical

Roger Swift

Charles Pelham Villiers: Aristocratic Victorian Radical by Roger Swift

This book provides the first biographical study of Charles Pelham Villiers (1802-1898), whose long UK parliamentary career spanned numerous government administrations under twenty different prime ministers.

An aristocrat from a privileged background, Villiers was elected to Parliament as a Radical in 1835 and subsequently served the constituency of Wolverhampton for sixty-three years until his death in 1898. A staunch Liberal free trader throughout his life, Villiers played a pre-eminent role in the Anti-Corn Law League as its parliamentary champion, introduced an important series of Poor Law...

Mail Men: The Unauthorized Story of the Daily Mail - The Paper that Divided and Conquered Britain

Adrian Addison

Mail Men: The Unauthorized Story of the Daily Mail - The Paper that Divided and Conquered Britain by Adrian Addison

Perhaps because of the power and fear that the Daily Mail commands, this is the very first book to provide an unauthorized account of the newspaper with more global readers than any other. With a gripping personality-led narrative, informed by well-placed sources, Mail Men investigates the secret behind the Mail's extraordinary longevity and commercial success, from its first edition on 4 May 1896, to its global MailOnline website today. But, it also examines the controversies that have beset the paper - from its owner's flirtation with fascism in the 1930s to its fractious relationship with...

Poverty and Welfare in Modern German History

Lutz Raphael

Poverty and Welfare in Modern German History by Lutz Raphael For many, the history of German social policy is defined primarily by that nation's postwar emergence as a model of the European welfare state. As this comprehensive volume demonstrates, however, the question of how to care for the poor has had significant implications for German history throughout the modern era. Here, eight leading historians provide essential case studies and syntheses of current research into German welfare, from the Holy Roman Empire to the present day. Along the way, they trace the parallel historical dynamics that have continued to shape German society, including religious...

Xenocracy: State, Class, and Colonialism in the Ionian Islands, 1815-1864

Sakis Gekas

Xenocracy: State, Class, and Colonialism in the Ionian Islands, 1815-1864 by Sakis Gekas

Of the many European territorial reconfigurations that followed the wars of the early nineteenth century, the Ionian State remains among the least understood. Xenocracy offers a much-needed account of the region during its half-century as a Protectorate of Great Britain-a period that embodied all of the contradictions of British colonialism. A middle class of merchants, lawyers and state officials embraced and promoted a liberal modernization project. Yet despite the improvements experienced by many Ionians, the deterioration of state finances led to divisions along class lines and presented...

Between Blood and Gold: The Debates over Compensation for Slavery in the Americas

Fr Beauvois

Between Blood and Gold: The Debates over Compensation for Slavery in the Americas by Fr Beauvois Today, a century and a half after the abolition of slavery across most of the Americas, the idea of monetary reparations for former slaves and their descendants continues to be a controversial one. Lost among these debates, however, is the fact that such payments were widespread in the nineteenth century-except the "victims" were not slaves, but the slaveholders deprived of their labor. This landmark comparative study analyzes the debates over compensation within France and Great Britain. It lays out in unprecedented detail the philosophical, legal-political, and economic factors at play, establishing...

Migration, Memory, and Diversity: Germany from 1945 to the Present

Cornelia Wilhelm

Migration, Memory, and Diversity: Germany from 1945 to the Present by Cornelia Wilhelm Within Germany, policies and cultural attitudes toward migrants have been profoundly shaped by the difficult legacies of the Second World War and its aftermath. This wide-ranging volume explores the complex history of migration and diversity in Germany from 1945 to today, showing how conceptions of "otherness" developed while memories of the Nazi era were still fresh, and identifying the continuities and transformations they exhibited through the Cold War and reunification. It provides invaluable context for understanding contemporary Germany's unique role within regional politics at a time...

Narratives in the Making: Writing the East German Past in the Democratic Present

Anselma Gallinat

Narratives in the Making: Writing the East German Past in the Democratic Present by Anselma Gallinat Despite the three decades that have passed since the fall of the Berlin Wall, the historical narrative of East Germany is hardly fixed in public memory, as German society continues to grapple with the legacies of the Cold War. This fascinating ethnography looks at two very different types of local institutions in one eastern German state that take divergent approaches to those legacies: while publicly funded organizations reliably cast the GDR as a dictatorship, a main regional newspaper offers a more ambivalent perspective colored by the experiences and concerns of its readers. As author Anselma...

Ambassadors of Realpolitik: Sweden, the CSCE, and the Cold War

Aryo Makko

Ambassadors of Realpolitik: Sweden, the CSCE, and the Cold War by Aryo Makko During the Cold War, Sweden actively cultivated a reputation as the "conscience of the world," working to build bridges between East and West and embracing a nominal commitment to international solidarity. This groundbreaking study explores the tension between realism and idealism in Swedish diplomacy during a key episode in Cold War history: the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, culminating in the 1975 Helsinki Accords. Through careful analysis of new evidence, it offers a compelling counternarrative of this period, showing that Sweden strategically ignored human rights violations...

Losing Heaven: Religion in Germany since 1945

Losing Heaven: Religion in Germany since 1945 by Gro

As the birthplace of the Reformation, Germany has been the site of some of the most significant moments in the history of European Christianity. Today, however, its religious landscape is one that would scarcely be recognizable to earlier generations. This groundbreaking survey of German postwar religious life depicts a profoundly changed society: congregations shrink, private piety is on the wane, and public life has almost entirely shed its Christian character, yet there remains a booming market for syncretistic and individualistic forms of "popular religion." Losing Heaven insightfully recounts...

The Nuclear Crisis: The Arms Race, Cold War Anxiety, and the German Peace Movement of the 1980s

Christoph Becker-Schaum

The Nuclear Crisis: The Arms Race, Cold War Anxiety, and the German Peace Movement of the 1980s by Christoph Becker-Schaum In 1983, more than one million Germans joined together to protest NATO's deployment of nuclear missiles in Europe. International media overflowed with images of marches, rallies, and human chains as protesters blockaded depots and agitated for disarmament. Though they failed to halt the deployment, the episode was a decisive one for German society, revealing deep divisions in the nation's political culture while continuing to mobilize activists. This volume provides a comprehensive reference work on the "Euromissiles" crisis as experienced by its various protagonists, analyzing NATO's diplomatic...

Incarceration and Regime Change: European Prisons during and after the Second World War

Christian G. De Vito

Incarceration and Regime Change: European Prisons during and after the Second World War by Christian G. De Vito Political instability is nearly always accompanied by fuller prisons, and this was particularly true during the "long" Second World War, when military mobilization, social disorder, wrenching political changes, and shifting national boundaries swelled the ranks of the imprisoned and broadened the carceral reach of the state. This volume brings together theoretically sophisticated, empirically rich studies of key transitional moments that transformed the scope and nature of European prisons during and after the war. It depicts the complex interactions of both penal and administrative institutions...

The Rivals: Montrose and Argyll and the Struggle for Scotland

Murdo Fraser

The Rivals: Montrose and Argyll and the Struggle for Scotland by Murdo FraserThe struggles of the Scottish Civil War of 1644-45 could easily be personified as a contest between James Graham, 1st Marquis of Montrose and Archibald Campbell, 8th Earl of Argyll. Yet at first glance there seems to be more that unites them than separates them. Both came from ancient and powerful families; both were originally Covenanters; both considered themselves loyal subjects of Charles I, then Charles II, who in turn betrayed each of them, and both died at the hands of the executioner.

In this book Murdo Fraser examines these two remarkable men, underlining their different personalities:...

Scotland: A History from Earliest Times

Alistair Moffat

Scotland: A History from Earliest Times by Alistair MoffatFrom the Ice Age to the recent Scottish Referendum, historian and author Alistair Moffat explores the history of the Scottish nation. As wellas focusing on key moments in the nation's history such as the Battle of Bannockburn and the Jacobite Risings, Moffat also features other episodes in history that are perhaps less well documented. From prehistoric timber halls to inventions and literature, Moffat's tale explores the drama of battle, change, loss and invention interspersed with the lives of ordinary Scottish folk, the men and women who defined a nation.

Martyrs: Glendale and the Revolution in Skye

Roger Hutchinson

Martyrs: Glendale and the Revolution in Skye by Roger HutchinsonIn the 1830s and 1840s the district of Glendale on the island of Skye was swamped by immigrants cleared from other north Skye estates. The resultant overcrowding and overuse of land caused simmering discontent – not against the incomers, but against the landowners, who regarded their tenants as no more than chattels. This book is a definitive account of what happened when the powder-keg erupted and a full-scale land-war ensued. Pitched battles with police, factors and bailiffs, military intervention, arrests, trials, imprisonment and the personal intervention of the Prime Minister were to have...

The Faded Map: Lost Kingdoms of Scotland

The Faded Map: Lost Kingdoms of Scotland by Alistair MoffatThis book brings to vivid life the half-forgotten kings and kingdoms of two thousand years ago, of the time of the Romans, the Dark Ages and into the early medieval period. Though recent politics and logistics have established borders and jurisdictions which now seem permanent and impervious, The Faded Map looks beyond these to remember a land that was once quiet and green. In this fascinating account, Alistair Moffat describes the landscape these men and women moved through and talks of a Celtic society which spoke to itself in Old Welsh, where the Sons of Prophesy ruled, and the time when...

The Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes: Essays on Victorian England by Liese Anne Sherwood-Fabre

Step back to London, 1895.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories are full of references to everyday activities and events from Victorian times that make the twenty-first century reader run to the reference shelf. Few, for example, are intimately acquainted with the responsibilities of a country squire, the importance of gentlemen's clubs, or the intricacies of the Victorian monetary system.

These twenty-four short essays explore various aspects of life mentioned in the original tales of Sherlock Holmes, providing modern-day insight into the nineteenth century world. Originally shared through various...
