The British Missionary Enterprise since 1700 / Jeffrey Cox. - New York, London : Routledge, cop. 2008. - XII, [2], 315 s. ; 24 cm.
(Christianity and society in the modern world / ed. Hugh McLeod)
Missions are an important topic in the history of modern Britain and of even wider importance in the modern history of Africa and many parts of Asia. Yet, despite the perennial subject matter, and the publication of a large number of studies of particular aspects of missions, there is no recent, balanced overview of the history of the missionary moment during the last three hundred years. "The British Missionary Enterprise since 1700" moves away from the partisan approach that characterizes so many writers in field and instead views missionaries primarily as institution builders rather than imperialists or heroes of social reform. This balanced survey examines both Britain as the home base of missions and the impact of the missions themselves, while also evaluating the independent initiatives by African and Asia Christians. Also addressed are the previously ignored issues of missionary rhetoric, the predominantly female nature of missions, and comparisons between British missions and those from other predominantly Protestant countries including the United States. Jeffrey Cox brings a fresh and much needed overview to this large, fascinating and controversial subject.

(Religion, culture, and society)
Includes bibliographical references (p. [202]-205) and index.
'A sense of place': what do we mean? Why are some places felt be holy? What is a sense of nationality in spiritual terms? Is nationalism fundamentally opposed to international understanding, tolerance and equality, or can it be humanitarian and Christian? These are some of the questions which Dorian Llywelyn explores in his vigorous analysis of the interplay between place, religion, nationality, language, culture and politics in the Welsh literary tradition. This comprehensive study ranges from the sixth to the twentieth century and draws on a rich variety of sources in its examination of the development of a political theology in Wales. Since many of the writers discussed here have not been previously translated into English, the book opens up the treasures of Welsh-language spirituality and thought to the non-Welsh-speaking reader. Sacred Place, Chosen People combines contemporary theory with a profound knowledge of the Welsh literary and religious tradition and offers a fascinating elucidation of the long tradition of Wales as a 'holy land' and its people as a 'people of God.'

The Natural and the Supernatural middle ages / Robert Bartlett. - Cambridge, New York : Cambridge University Press, cop. 2008. - X, 170 s. : il. ; 23 cm.
Bibliografia s. 149-164, ined s. 165-170
How did people of the medieval period explain physical phenomena, such as eclipses or the distribution of land and water on the globe? What creatures did they think they might encounter: angels, devils, witches, dogheaded people? This fascinating book explores the ways in which medieval people categorized the world, concentrating on the division between the natural and the supernatural and showing how the idea of the supernatural came to be invented in the Middle Ages. Robert Bartlett examines how theologians and others sought to draw lines between the natural, the miraculous, the marvelous and the monstrous, and the many conceptual problems they encountered as they did so. The final chapter explores the extraordinary thought-world of Roger Bacon as a case study exemplifying these issues. By recovering the mentalities of medieval writers and thinkers the book raises the critical question of how we deal with beliefs we no longer share.

The later Tudors : England, 1547-1603 / Penry Williams. - Repr. - Oxford : Clarendon Press ; New York : Oxford University Press, 2010. - XXI, 606 s., [16] s. tabl. : ill. ; 24 cm.
(The New Oxford History of England)
Bibliogr. s. 561-580, indeks.
"The Later Tudors" is an authoritative and comprehensive study of England between the accession of Edward VI and the death of Elizabeth I - a turbulent period of conflict amongst European nations, and between warring Catholics and Protestants. These internal and external struggles created anxiety in england, but by the end of Elizabeth's reign the nation had achieved a remarkable sense of political and religious identity. Penry Williams combines the political, religious and economic history of the nation with a broader analysis of English society, family relations and culture, in order to explain the workings and developments of the English state. The result is an incisive and wide-ranging analysis that culminates in an assessment of England's part in the shaping of the New World.

In 1970 the "cold war" wass still cold, Northern Ireland's troubles were escalating, the UK's relations with the EEC were unclear, and corporatist approaches to the economy precariously persisted. By 1990 Communism was crumbling world-wide, Thatcher's economic revolution had occurred, terrorism in Northern Ireland was waning, multiculturalism was in place, family structures were changing fast, and British political institutions had become controversial. This, the first thorough, wide-ranging, and synoptic study of the UK so far published on this period, has two overriding aims: to show how British institutions evolved, but also to illuminate changes in the British people: their hopes and fears, values and enjoyments, failures and achievements. It therefore equips its readers to understand events since 1990, and so to decide for themselves where the UK should now be going.

Shaping the Nation : England 1360-1461 / Gerald Harriss. - Repr. - Oxford : Clarendon Press : Oxford University Press, 2008. - XXI, [1], 705 s., [8] s. tabl. : il. ; 24 cm.
(The New Oxford History of England)
Bibliogr. s. 661-670. Indeks.
The Black Death, the Peasants' Revolt, the Hundred Years War, the Wars of the Roses... a succession of dramatic social and political upheavals reshaped England in the period 1360 to 1461. In his lucid and penetrating account of this formative period, Gerald Harriss draws on the research of the last thirty years to describe late medieval society at its peak. The political narrative centres on the rule and eventual deposition of Richard II on charges of tyranny and the establishment of the House of Lancaster, which was in turn overthrown in the Wars of the Roses. Abroad, Henry V's heroic victory at Agincourt in 1415 opened the way to the English conquest and colonisation of Normandy and a projected union of England and France. Far reaching chenges occured in English society. The Black Death produced a crisis in agrarian structures, marked by the Peasant's Revolt in 1381 and the end of serfdom. A class structure emerged in landed society, with grades of knights, esquires, gentlemen and yeomen linked to the nobility through patronage and service. The marked individualism of this society was accompanied by a growing sense of national identity. Literature expressed an assertive patriotism, facilitated by the spread of London english as a standard language, while a spate of church building developed perpendicular as a distinctive national style. the increasing participation of the laity in the Church stimulated new forms of Catholic devotion and prompted the emergence of the proto-Protestantism of John Wyclif and the Lollards. Through a close examination of these aspects of late medieval England, Gerald Harriss traces its transformation from a feudal into a national society.

A polite and commercial people : England : 1727-1783 / Paul Langford. - Oxford : Clarendon Press, cop. 1998. - XVIII, [2], 803 s., 16 s. tabl. : il. ; 23 cm.
(The New Oxford History of England)
Bibliogr. s. 741-766. Indeks.
Conventional views of the eighteenth century emphasize its political stability, aristocratic government, stately manners, and Georgian elegance. Professor Langford, however, also brings to life a less orderly world of treasonable plots, rioting mobs, and Hogarthian vulgarity. Using the latest research, and a wealth of original sources, often generously quoted, he tells a highly readable tale of remarkable contrast and changes. Pitt, Fox and Walpole rub shoulders with Dr Johnson, Pope and Fielding. This books shows the vitality and variety of an age often seen in static terms. This was, above all, a period of rapid commercial growth and burgeoning bourgeois pretensions. Many characteristic features of eighteenth-century life were the result. They included military success and imperial expansion, political maturation and economic development, cultural confidence and polite manners. But there were also tensions and contradictions. Evangelical enthusiasm jostled with scientific rationalism, oligarchical politics with popular insubordination, entrepreneurial opulence with plebeian poverty, sentimentality with utilitarian reform. Professor Langford examines all these features and explains the way they relate to each other. He demonstrates that this was a society constantly being stretched by change, and perpetually responding to its challenge.

British Cultural Identities / ed. Mike Storry, Peter Childs. - Ed. 3. - London, New York : Routledge, 2007. - XIX, 299 s. : il. ; 24 cm.
"In British Cultural Identities" Mike Storry and Peter Childs assess the degree to which being British impinges on the identity of the many people who live in Britain. They analyze contemporary British identity through the various and changing ways in which people who live in the UK position themselves and are positioned by their culture today. Using examples from contemporary and popular culture, each chapter covers one of seven intersecting themes: place and environment education, work and leisure gender, sex and the family youth culture and style class and politics ethnicity and language religion and heritage. This third edition is fully updated to include environmental concerns, devolution, the infantilization of culture, binge-drinking and reality TV, 7/7 and terrorism, and the general shift from a literate to a visual culture.

England under the Norman and Angevin Kings 1075-1225 / Robert Bartlett. - Repr. - Oxford : Clarendon Press ; New York : Oxford University Press, 2011. - XXX, 772 s., [8] s. tabl. : il. ; 24 cm.
(The New Oxford History of England)
Bibliogr. s. 695-705. Indeksy.
This lively and far-reaching account of the politics, religion and culture of England in the century and a half after the Norman Conquest provides a vivid picture of everyday existence, and increases our understanding of all aspects of medieval society. This was a period in which the ruling dynasty and military aristocracy were deeply enmeshed with the politics and culture of France. Professor Bartlett describes their conflicts, and their preoccupations - the sense of honour, the role of violence, and the glitter of tournament, heraldry, and Arthurian romance. He explores the mechanics of government; assesses the role of the Church at a time of radical developments in religious life and organization; and investigates the peasant economy, the foundation of this society, and the growing urban and commercial activity. There are colourful details of the everyday life and ordinary men and women, with their views on the past, on sexuality, on animals, on death, the undead, and the occult. The result is a fascinating and comprehensive portrayal of a period which begins with conquest and ends in assimilation.
