About this book

Reviews

“This volume is a thought-provoking collection of essays borne out of a 2013 international conference. … as historical study continues to turn increasingly to encompass a wider view outside the national narrative, this edited collection can claim to have set the course for new and exciting future studies in what is a popular and ever expanding area of research.” (Mario Draper, European History Quarterly, Vol. 47 (1), 2017)
