Introducing the Medieval Dragon

Thomas Honegger

‘This study of the medieval dragon not only provides a detailed examination of the perceived threats to medieval society, but also more broadly sheds telling light on the very nature of medieval culture. Superbly well researched yet also highly accessible, this is scholarship at its best.’
- Dr Martin Arnold, Reader Emeritus, University of Hull

Kant’s Political Legacy

Human Rights, Peace, Progress

Luigi Caranti

‘In his latest book, Luigi Caranti writes clearly and with insight not only about the legacy of Kant’s political philosophy, but also about our present political condition and the painful gap between the two. Arguing that Kant correctly interpreted can in fact offer better concrete guidance for political action in today’s world than many of his foes as well as friends realise, this is a work from which all thoughtful readers concerned with reducing injustice will benefit.’
– Professor Robert B. Louden, University of Southern Maine

Horror and Religion

New literary approaches to Theology, Race and Sexuality

Edited by Eleanor Beal and Jonathan Greenaway

Eleanor Beal and Jonathan Greenaway have assembled here a truly stimulating collection of essays devoted to exploring the often surprising connections between religion and horror, from the eighteenth century through to the present day. As eclectic in its various critical approaches as it is in the range of texts, authors and topics covered, the collection, refreshingly and perhaps self-consciously so, is a very broad church. Horror and Religion is a welcome addition to the recent critical interest in the theology of the Gothic mode, and is bound to become a key text in the field.’
- Dale Townshend, Professor of Gothic Literature, Manchester Centre for Gothic Studies

Women and the City in French Literature and Culture

Reconfiguring the Feminine in the Urban Environment

Edited by Siobhán McIlvanney and Gillian Ni Cheallaigh

‘Ranging across centuries, continents and cultural media, this book explores with exceptional cogency and brio women’s ambivalent relationship with the masculine space of cities. Its chapters are splendidly well chosen, framed and edited to show how women, past and present, find multiple ways to engage creatively with cities, as social agents and as writers, readers and film-makers.’
- Diana Holmes, Professor of French, University of Leeds

‘Pacifism, Peace and Modern Welsh Writing is an enlivening and erudite study, which draws on a range of Welsh-language and English-language texts to reveal the distinctive, interwoven history and cultural importance of pacifist thought in Wales.’

Freedom Music

Wales, Emancipation and Jazz 1850-1950

Jen Wilson

‘In Freedom Music, archivist and pianist Jen Wilson embellishes established narratives of Welsh culture with the “blue notes” of transnational, African American and feminist histories. Her explorations of musical influences, the politics of performance practices and the social effects of cultural transference open up new areas of research. This is a wide-ranging, suitably-illustrated and engaging book that documents the cross-cultural and transatlantic dialogues that were the making of modern Wales.’
- Professor Daniel G. Williams, Swansea University
