War, History and Politics

About the Series

This new series of books marks a new publishing initiative in military history and politics. Covering history over the last millennium, the series will publish cutting-edge scholarly works within the fields of military and political history. Here, military history is taken to include not only operational histories but also the wider social, cultural, economic and political contexts of conflict. Similarly, political history is seen as not only a matter of politicians, political parties and elections but also in terms of the wider resonances of political commitment, activity and thought. The geographical coverage of the series will be global and proposals on topics beyond Anglo-American history and politics will be encouraged.
