The Centenary Edition Raymond Williams

Who Speaks for Wales? Nation, Culture, Identity

Edited by Daniel G. Williams

‘Anchored solidly in Welsh history and culture, this collection of essays restores nuance and depth to critical studies of Raymond Williams. A bracing introduction and new afterword cogently parse through problematic terms like “exile” and “marginality” to recover Williams’s Welsh experience as an essential component of his critical practice. The volume provides a definitive account of Williams’s complex engagement with Wales as a template for his understanding of British imperialism, nationalism and class struggle.’
-Professor Gauri Viswanathan, Columbia University

Crimes Against Humanity

The Limits of Universal Jurisdiction in the Global South

Nergis Canefe

‘This is an eminently interdisciplinary tome on crimes against humanity, which draws appropriately not just from the usual international law sources but also from a range of other disciplines – especially philosophy and political science. Canefe is to be commended for the refreshing way in which she has systematically applied a Global South perspective (as a way of seeing) to the analysis of such crimes as they relate to Global South (as a geo-political space); an analytical approach that remains uncommon in the field.’
- Professor Obiora Okafor, York University, Toronto ON

Doña Bárbara Unleashed

From Venezuelan Plains to International Screen

Jenni M. Lehtinen

‘In this hugely engaging and delightfully written exploration of Doña Bárbara and its popular on-screen afterlife, Jenni Lehtinen presents the eponymous protagonist as a potentially endlessly morphing manifestation of untamed barbarism, glamour, seductiveness and female empowerment. Bárbara becomes a marker of transnational mobility and social and cultural evolution, both in terms of her textual, filmic and televisual incarnations, and in terms of her public reception and re-imagination by audiences and fans. The story of Doña Bárbara becomes the story of shifting conceptions of Latinity and a still unfolding tale of the powerful possibilities of adaptation and transformation.’
- Professor Philip Swanson, University of Sheffield

Blood, Land and Power

Manuel Perez-Garcia

‘Manuel Pérez-García forcefully demonstrates the role of the extended family groups in Spanish early modern and, by extension, in Western early modern societies. They articulate the relationship of individual with the global context, and their needs for preservation and dominance are the motor of social change, creating the dominant social representations. Unveiling the most intimate structures of Western societies, this book paves the way for global comparisons.’

Embodying Contagion

Edited by Sandra Becker, Megen de Bruin-Molé and Sara Polak

‘Haunting and timely: a set of meditations in an emergency that reflect not only on the present viral pandemic, but on the various crises that led to this moment, the ways we narrativise real world disaster, and the disastrous ways we have shared information and misinformation in the new millennium.’
- Dr Sarah Juliet Lauro, The University of Tampa

Global TV Horror

Edited by Stacey Abbott and Lorna Jowett

‘This timely new collection, truly global in its scope, gets to grips with the exponential spread of Horror across a wide variety of channels, national television networks and platforms. The recently-held belief in the incompatibility of Horror and television seems hard to imagine now, which is precisely why this collection of essays is so necessary. Abbott and Jowett’s introduction to the book is written with their characteristic clarity, and they have collected here the work of both senior figures from Horror Studies and many of the field’s most exciting new scholars.’
- Professor Helen Wheatley, University of Warwick

Transnationalism and Genre Hybridity in New British Horror Cinema

Lindsey Decker

‘We all thought British horror film perished in the 1990s. So when it returned from the dead in the 2000s, there wasn't a critic who knew what to do with it. Thankfully, we now have Lindsey Decker to illuminate this decade – with sharp, incisive and yet accessible prose, Decker explores how gothic horror, zombie films and hoodie horror embodied a distinctive Britishness that offered a compelling global appeal. This book is going to be a fixture on horror film reading lists for years to come.’
- Dr Alison Peirse, University of Leeds, editor of Women Make Horror: Filmmaking, Feminism and Genre
