France's iconic queen, Marie Antoinette, wrongly accused of uttering the infamous "Let them eat cake," was alternately revered and reviled during her lifetime. For centuries since, she has been the object of debate, speculation, and the fascination so often accorded illustrious figures in history. Married in mere girlhood, this essentially lighthearted child was thrust onto the royal stage and commanded by circumstance to play a significant role in European history. Antonia Fraser's lavish and engaging portrait excites compassion and regard for all aspects of the queen, immersing the reader not only in the coming-of-age of a graceful woman, but in the culture of an unparalleled time and place. From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the height of colonialism in the mid-nineteenth century, through to the aftermath of the Second World War, nurses have been at the heart of colonial projects. They were ideally placed to insinuate the 'improving' culture of their employers into the local communities they served, and travelled in droves to far-flung parts of the globe to serve their country. Issues of gender, class and race permeate this book, as the complex relationships between nurses, their medical colleagues, governments and the populations they nursed are examined in detail, using case studies which draw on exciting new sources. Many of the chapters are based on first-hand accounts of nurses and reveal that not all were motivated by patriotic vigour or altruism, but went out in search of adventure. The book will be an essential read for colonial historians, as well as historians of gender and ethnicity.

This comic book is the combined volume of Red Quill Book's signature four-part Communist Manifesto Illustrated series. It also includes the full text of the original "Manifesto of the Communist Party" along with a new Preface and explanatory notes on the prologues "Reckoning at Highgate Cemetery," "Breadline Babooshka," "The Agricultural Treadmill," and "After Occupy." The Communist Manifesto has been described as "the most important political text of the 19th century" yet it remains a profoundly important political text even today. Crisis after crisis breathes new life into the idea of communism and Marxist thought in general. Anti-capitalist sentiment is renewing itself and it is hoped that this illustrated work helps facilitate a rediscovery of Marx and adds fuel to the imagination for another world.

Il manuale ripercorre le vicende della storia mondiale lungo un arco di tempo bisecolare che dal congresso di Vienna arriva fino ai nostri giorni. Dopo aver delineato vicende demografiche, evoluzioni ambientali, trasformazioni di sistemi produttivi e forme di organizzazione del lavoro industriale negli ultimi due secoli, il volume adotta un scansione cronologica definita da avvenimenti considerati particolarmente periodizzanti: congresso di Vienna (1814-1815), nascita dell'Impero tedesco (1871), prima guerra mondiale (1914- 1918), invasione dell'Ungheria (1956), crollo del sistema sovietico (1991). L'ultimo capitolo segue le più recenti vicende mondiali fino al 2004.
