Photography, History: History, Photography
This field-defining series explores the inseparable relationship between photography and history. Bringing together perspectives from a broad disciplinary base it investigates what wider histories of, for example, wars, social movements, regionality or nationhood, look like when photography and its social and cultural force are brought into the centre of analysis.

Modernity, History, and Politics in Czech Art By Marta Filipová
"Overall, Filipová’s arguments are quite convincing and firmly grounded inboth primary source research and secondary scholarship from various fields. ... Marta Filipová’s book will certainly inspire other scholars and advanced students to pursue further research on Czech modernisms."
--Journal of Art Historiography
Constructing the Viennese Modern Body: Art, Hysteria, and the Puppet By Nathan J. Timpano
"I cannot begin to do justice to this book in this brief review. As a lay reader interested in gender, sexuality, and the history of the body, I approached the book with great curiosity and I was not disappointed."
-- German Studies Review
"Alongside all of the quickly and superficially produced publications on Viennese modernism, Timpano's book pleasantly stands out - as a very serious study written with a highly scientific ethos."
-- Journal of Art Historiography
"Timpano writes with confidence and authority on art history…[his] perspective on some of the better known developments in twentieth-century European puppetry will be of interest to readers."
-- Puppetry International
Form and Meaning in Avant-Garde Collage and Montage By Magda Dragu
"Dragu’s book is ... a valuable addition to the field of modernist studies. The meticulous research conducted is a particular strength of the volume."
--The Modernist Review
"Dragu’s book is a much-needed, meticulously researched and highly original contribution to a field that is undergoing a resurgence of critical interest."
--Polish Journal of English Studies
