  1. The Territories of the Russian Federation

    Reference Book of the Month: The Territories of the Russian Federation 2012

    Events surrounding the 2012 Russian Presidential Elections were bought to a head in early February when Doku Umarov, the self-styled ‘leader of the North Caucasus emirate’, announced that his forces would no longer attack Russian citizens, on the basis that the antigovernment protests demonstrated their common enmity to Russia’s rulers. In a year that has proved particularly agitated for Russian politics, dominated not only by public disquiet around elections but also the ongoing insurgency against Russian rule in the predominantly Islamic republics of the North Caucasus, the editors of the 13th edition of The Territories of the Russian Federation have assembled a number of resources to assist readers in grasping the defining issues of the day.

  4. Women and Belief, 1852–1928, Edited by Jessica Cox, Mark Llewellyn, and Nadine Muller

    Over recent years, research into religious belief during the Victorian period and the early twentieth century has grown in diversity and importance. The centrality of faith-based discourses to women of the period has long been recognized by scholars in the field, but until now relatively little significance has been attached to the fundamental relationship between women’s faith and women’s rights.

    Women and Belief, 1852–1928 - a new six-Volume collection forming part of the History of Feminism series - remedies this omission, exploring a wide range of opinions about women, their self-identity, and the combination of their spiritual and political beliefs.
