The book is written with an explicit aim for its reader to acquire understanding of the past whilst imparting knowledge using the underlying the historical concepts such as evidence, continuity and change, cause and effect, significance, empathy, perspectives, and contestability. Key topics discussed within the book include: The structure of French society before 1789. The long- and short-term factors that contributed to the French Revolution. How ordinary French people, including women and slaves participated in the revolution. What brought about the end of the ancien regime. The major reforms of the National Assembly, 1789-1791 and how they lead to the division and radicalisation of the revolution. How did the alternative visions of the new society divide the revolution and what were the internal and external pressures on the revolution that contributed to its radicalisation. The forms of terror which enabled reality triumph over the idealism. The rise of Napoleon Bonaparte as military leader and Emperor. This book is an ideal introduction for anyone wishing to learn more about this influential revolution in the shaping of modern Europe and the world.

    Aëtiana V: An Edition of the Reconstructed Text of the Placita with a Commentary and a Collection of Related Texts
    Mansfeld, J ; Runia, DT ; Mansfeld, J ; Runia, D (Brill, 2020)
    The present edition and commentary on the Placita has been a very long time in the making. In the case of Jaap Mansfeld, its origins go as far back as the research he did on ps.Hippocrates De hebdomadibus in the late 1960’s.1 David Runia first came into contact with doxographical texts when analysing Philo of Alexandria’s puzzling work De aeternitate mundi in the late 1970’s.2 We made the decision to work together on the Aëtian Placita in 1989 and the project entitled ‘Aëtiana: the Method and Intellectual Context of a Doxographer’ was born. The present volume consisting of four parts is the project’s culmination. Four preparatory volumes (in five parts) have preceded it.3 We will not again describe the project’s origins and development. The interested reader is referred to the Introduction to Volume 4, where a full account is given.

    Keeping Family in an Age of Long Distance Trade, Imperial Expansion, and Exile, 1550-1850
    Dalton, H ; Dalton, H (Amsterdam University Press, 2020)
    Keeping Family in an Age of Long Distance Trade, Imperial Expansion and Exile, 1550-1850 brings together eleven original essays by an international group of scholars, each investigating how family, or the idea of family, was maintained or reinvented when husbands, wives, children, apprentices, servants or slaves separated, or faced separation, from their household. The result is a fresh and geographically wide-ranging discussion about the nature of family and its intersection with travel over a three hundred year period during which roles and relationships, within and between households, were increasingly affected by trade, settlement, and empire building. The imperial project may have influenced different regions in different ways at different times yet, as this collection reveals, families, especially those transcending national ties and traditional boundaries were central to its progress. Together, these essays bring new understandings of the foundations of our interconnected world and of the people who contributed to it.
