Saving the Pyramids

Twenty First Century Engineering and Egypt’s Ancient Monuments

Peter James

‘A history of the pyramids and the technical innovation that has gone into saving them is a fascinating combination that should interest all of us involved in building conservation… This book presents an extra dimension and interest, which again is a fascinating tale.’

- Professor John Edwards, University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Gothic Invasions

Imperialism, War and Fin-de-Siècle Popular Fiction

Ailise Bulfin

‘Meticulously researched and impressively theorised, Ailise Bulfin’s brilliant study takes us deeper than we have ever been into the paranoid imagination of the British Empire at its fin-de-siècle zenith, showing the extraordinary interplay of imperial geopolitics and popular culture in the decades leading up to the First World War. Bulfin’s work offers crucial insight into the development of popular genre fiction at this time, deepening our understanding of familiar writers such as Bram Stoker, Conan Doyle, and Rudyard Kipling, and making a fascinating case for the contemporary significance of marginal cultural figures such as Guy Boothby, M. P. Shiel or William Le Queux.’
- Professor Darryl Jones, Trinity College, Dublin

Sex, Sects and Society

'Pain and Pleasure': A Social History of Wales and the Welsh, 1870-1945

Russell Davies

‘Russell Davies has written an enthralling book which defies convention by focusing on how the obsession with pain and death, moral excess and squeamishness, black humour and disenchantment became an integral part of the Welsh psyche in modern times. He has become an expert in peeping into nooks and crannies which historians either deliberately or inadvertently avoid.’

- Professor Geraint H. Jenkins, former Director of the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies

New Territories in Modernism

Anglophone Welsh Writing, 1930-1949

Laura Wainwright

‘For many, Welsh Modernism begins and ends with Dylan Thomas. This stimulating study argues otherwise, demonstrating that Modernist experimentation was a natural outcome of the growing biculturalism and cultural hybridity of early twentieth-century Wales. Laura Wainwright’s is a bold, original contribution not only to our understanding of Wales’s Anglophone literature, but also to the ongoing scholarly enterprise of pluralising our conception of the Modernist Moment world-wide.’
- Professor M. Wynn Thomas, Swansea University
