The Age of Caricature : Satirical Prints in the Reign of George III

Author: Diana Donald

Full of illustrations, this handsome volume contains the first major study of late eighteenth-century caricatures. Donald challenges many assumptions about these cartoons, putting them in context as a widely disseminated form of political expressions and propaganda, as subtle and eloquent as the written word. Her writing carefully explores the social and political allusions of specific images (so often obscure to the modern viewer) while at the same time weaving in a far broader study of the Georgian world.

Author: Lois Austen-Leigh

A vintage piece from the Golden Age of the detective novel, playfully satirising both the cosy country-house crime and the rambling academic mystery. The plot roams from Prince’s College, Cambridge to Wellende Old Hall, Suffolk, taking in smuggling, espionage, fox-hunting and the eccentricities of academia along the way, while the obligatory unconventional young woman finds her usual unexpected romance.

The Landscape of History : How Historians Map the Past

Author: John Lewis Gaddis

Based on a set of lectures given at the University of Oxford, ‘The landscape of history’ is a wide-ranging discussion of the aims, limitations and methods of historiography. Gaddis argues that history has more in common with the ‘hard’ sciences than the social sciences, and his pragmatic view touches on chaos, complexity and criticality. A thoroughly post-modern exploration of historians, written by a historian.
