MILLER, Edward. The Abbey and Bishopric of Ely : The Social History of an Ecclesiastical estate from the tenth century to the early fourteenth century. [With an editor's preface by M.D. Knowles]. Cambridge: at the University Press, 1969. Second Printing. Cambridge University Press Library Edition. Pp. (6),[v]-xii,(2),[1]-313,(3). 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Cambridge Studies in Medieval Life and Thought, New Series, number 1. Edited by M.D. Knowles. "A study of the formation of a large estate by Ely Abbey during the tenth and eleventh centuries and of the various social groups on that estate after the foundation of the bishopric in 1109 and down tothe mid-fourteenth century. A central theme is the way in which this estat e reflected the great movement of economic expansion during the twelfth andthirteenth centuries: the agricultural operations of the bishops themselve s, the fortunes of their peasant tenants and the relationships between the bishops as landlords and their tenants. In this connexion the problems of estate management are also discussed and the formation and character of a managerial class. The bishops, however, were more than merely landlords: theywere also feudal lords and possessed extensive local government powers. Th e book, therefore, also deals with their feudal as well as their agricultural tenants and with exercise by the bishops of 'public' powers. In this sense it tries to give a complete picture of the secular influence of the bishops, which was one of the dominating influences in the society of Eastern England." - from the dustjacket.

2 SCOTT, Jonathan. SIDNEY, Algernon). Cambridge Studies in Early Modern British History). Algernon Sidney and the English Republic, 1623-1677. First Edition in dustjacket.
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1988, ISBN:0521352908 
SCOTT, Jonathan. Algernon Sidney and the English Republic, 1623-1677. Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, (1988). First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-xii,1-258,(2). 8vo, brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine. A volume in the Cambridge Studies in Early Modern British History series. "In the century following his execution for treason in 1683, Algernon Sidney became one of the most widely influential political writers -- in both Europe and America -- that England had ever produced. This is the first full-scale study of Sidney for more than a century, and the first ever study of his political thought. The book describes Sidney's republican political ideas and their laterimpact. It sets them in their ideological context, in relation to their so urces and to the ideas of contemporaries, including Milton, Harrington, Vane, and Locke. It then asks: how did this ideology develop, and why? The answer involves a series of investigations: of Sidney's family background; of the nature of his personal life and family relationships; and of his publicpolitical career. On this latter score we follow Sidney's progress from pa rliamentarian soldier in the English Civil War, to senior member and ambassador of the English Republic, to embittered exile after the Restoration in 1660. During his time in the republican Netherlands in 1665-6 Sidney wrote a major early work, The Court Maxims, which has only recently been discovered and receives its first full exposition here. The book ends after Sidney's seventeen-year-exile in France - at the age of 54 -in 1677. The final sixyears in England to follow, in its restoration political context, are to b e the subject of a separate study."(from the dj) Contents : Preface, Acknowledgements, 1 introduction: the man and the myths, PART ONE: FAMILY AND IDEAS, 2 Political and Religious thought,2 Family and background, 4 Family andpolitics, PART TWO; WAR AND POLITICS, 5 Diplomacy and war 1635-48, 6 Repub lic 1649-53, 7 Tyranny 1653-59, 8 War and diplomacy 1659-60, PART THREE: RESTORATION AND EXILE, 9 The Restoration, 10 Rome 1660-63, 11 The Exiles 1663-66, 12 The Court Maxims, 13 The Dutch Connection, 14 Le Comte de Sidney 1666-77, Index.

Number 7 in the Cambridge Studies in Anglo-Saxon England series "'This is the first book to make a comprehensive study of Old English medical texts. Professor Cameron compares Anglo-Saxon medical practice with that of the Greeks and Romans from whom the Anglo-Saxons borrowed freely. He analyses the position of physicians in society, the conditions under which their patients lived and the effectiveness of their remedies. He examines the ingredients of Anglo-Saxon prescriptions, their therapeutic efficacy and availability. The role of magic in medicine is dealt with in depth, but found to have played less part inmedical practice than has sometimes been thought. Special attention is giv en to surgery, bloodletting, gynaecology and obstetrics. Professor Cameron concludes that Anglo-Saxon medicine, on the evidence of surviving texts, was as good as any previously practised in Western Europe. The author has written with the needs of medical historians and non-specialist readers as well as Anglo-Saxonists in mind. The numerous quotations from the surviving texts are given in English as well as in the original languages." (from the dj). Contents : 1. Introduction. 2. Conditions for health and disease. 3.

DOCKRILL, Saki. Britain's Policy for West German Rearmament 1950-1955. Cambridge [et al] : Cambridge University Press, (1991). First Edition. Pp (8),ix-xii,(1),1-209,(1). Index. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

Cambridge Studies in International Relations, no. 13.

"The integration of West Germany into the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) became one of the most important and contentious problems of post-war security. Increasing Cold War tensions during and after 1949 had led Britain to consider the need to rearm West Germany. Yet fears of a resurgent Germany existed both in Britain and on the continent. The timing and manner of German incorporation was crucial and became the subject of lengthy negotiations.

Using extensive archival material, Saki Dockrill stresses how the government was forced to react to the constantly changing positions adopted by the USA, France and Germany itself and addresses three main issues: What made Britain accept the need for a German contribution to the defence of Western Europe? Why was Britain reluctant to encourage any hasty American and French proposals? Andwhy did Britain eventually put forward proposals that successfully resolved the crisis?

The author argues that, contrary to the acceppted view, Britain was not at any time enthusiastic about rearming West Germany. Moreover, as Dr Dockrill shows, Britain's attitude to Western Europe did not result in a radical departure from her traditional opposition to a continental commitment, but led to her persuading her allies to accept Britain's original plan lor a West German army controlled through NATO.

This is the first book-length analysis of the formulation of Britain's strategy for rearming West Germany and will be of interestto specialists and students of international politics, with special refere nce to post-war diplomatic history, NATO and European security." (from the dj).

WIGLEY, Philip G. Canada and the Transition to Commonwealth : British-Canadian Relations 1917-1926. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, (1977). First Edition. Pp 294. 8vo, black cloth. In the Cambridge Commonwealth Series."This book studies the relations between Britain and Canada from the end o f the First World War to the Imperial Conference of 1926. It is concerned principally with the problems of imperial co-operation and consultation in foreign affairs and defence policy, and with the pressures developing out ofthese problems to reformulate the constitutional relations of Britain and her dominions. Having made unprecedented efforts and sacrifices during the war, the dominions were seeking an enhanced position within the empire, a new partnership with Britain based on equality of status rather than mere colonial autonomy. Canada was consistently in the vanguard of this drive for equality, and although until 1921 Canadian governments were themselves reluctant to breach united imperial policies too severely, thereafter the impetus for a new Canadian freedom from such policies was sharply intensified. In the course of examining Canadian attempts to redefine empire-commonwealthrelationships this book also throws fresh light on the evolution of Britis h attitudes to the dominions during these years. Often there were serious policy disagreements in Whitehall - the Colonial Office preferring to conciliate, the Foreign Office to challenge the overseas governments - and Dr Wigley, with close attention to official and private papers, shows clearly that developments in this period owed far more to Britain s own responses and priorities than has been previously realized." from dj flap.

The principal episodes of this period (the death of Charles V, the accession of Philip II, and the latter's marriage to Mary Tudor) are well known in outline, but Dr Rodriguez-Salgado provides much that is new and original, both on theinternal history of Spain, and on the highly complex diplomacy of the peri od. Why did Charles V and Philip I go to war against France, and Papacy andIslam, and how did the multinational empire survive the huge financial dem ands such wars placed upon it? Spanish relations with England and France are examined in detail, and The Changing Face of Empire does a great deal to illuminate the breakdown in relations with the Netherlands that was to culminate in the Dutch Revolt."

HAINES, Roy Martin. The Church and Politics in Fourteenth-Century England :The career of Adam Orleton, c. 1275-1345. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, (1978). First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-xiv,1-303,(3). 8vo, black cloth with silver titles to spine. Cambridge Studies in Medieval Life & Thought, Third Series, Volume 10. Haines was a member of the History Department of Dalhousie University. "Orleton's life of some seventy years was colourful and dangerous. Apart from the early phasse, about which little is known, it falls readily into three parts: his activity as a diplomat, his often-interrupted work as diocesan and his involvement in politics. The contemporary chronicler Geoffrey le Baker is largely responsible for Orleton's appalling reputation as a self-seeking revolutionary and regicide: a judgment handed on toe Stow and Holinshed. Re-examination of Baker reveals him as a blatant propagandist, whose unsupported word is suspect. This book traces Orleton'scareer against the background of fourteenth-century politics and the Churc h, attempting to make sense of a baffling conflict of evidence. Orleton emerges as an able and courageous man, as well as a skilful polemicist, a person who in more settled times might have gained a reputation for intelligence, practical ability and even loyalty." - from dj.

Pp (4),[v]-xiv,(2),[1]-335,(1). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. In the Cambridge History of Medicine series. "The Belgians commonly referred to their colonisation of the Congo as a 'civilising mission', and many regarded the introduction of Western biomedicine as a central feature of their 'gift' to Africans.By 1930, however, it was clear that some features of their 'civilising mis sion' were in fact closely connected to the poor health of many of the Congolese. The Europeans had indeed brought scientific enquiry and Western biomedicine; but they had also introduced a harsh, repressive political system which, coupled with a ruthlessly exploitative economic system, led to the introduction of new diseases while already-existing diseases were exacerbated and spread. Tropical, or 'colonial', medicine was a new field at the turnof the century, linked closely both to European expansionism and human try panosomiasis, or sleeping sickness. In 1901 a devastating epidemic had erupted in Uganda, killing well over 250,000 people. Over the next decades other African colonies, including the Belgian Congo, experienced epidemic sleeping sickness. By the 1960s and independence, many Africans had come to regard sleeping sickness as the 'colonial disease' because of the truly draconian measures taken by some colonial administrations in their attempts to check the spread of the disease. Sleeping sickness captured the colonial imagination to such an extent that it continued to dominate medical attention for many years. As a consequence, other glaring public health needs of the Congolese were ignored over decades." (Abstract). Contents : 1. Disease and medicine in the history of Africapage. 2.

Pp (6),vii-xiii,(3),3-205,(5),+ 8 pp.photos. Maps. 8vo, illustrated red and black card covers. Cambridge Studies in Social Anthropology No.60. "Rooted in two centuries of the history of daily life in the fishing villages of Newfoundland and Labrador, this study develops a historical anthropology that interweaves ordinary moments (naming a child, families eatinga meal together) with spectacular and suspenseful customs (masked mummers and ritualized liars) and with such fundamental confrontations as which fisher families the fish merchants would allow to starve, and why. By exploring such questions as how folk culture is transformed when it ceases to be central to labor discipline, how it connects and separates daily life and domination, and how it enters the arena of state politics, this book enables us further to understand the role of custom and culture on history." - from rear cover.
