Recent publications

Two recent works.

First up, Erik’s comment in a previous post alerted me to:

Mallett, M., and Christine Shaw. The Italian Wars 1494-1559: War, State and Society in Early Modern Europe. 1st ed. Pearson, 2012.
For those keeping track, it looks like the mega-conglomerate Pearson has taken over the Longman Modern Wars in Perspective series.
Second, we have:
Terry-Fritsch, Allie, Erin Felicia Labbie, and W. J. T. Mitchell, eds. Beholding Violence in Medieval and Early Modern Europe. Ashgate Publishing Company, 2012.
Most of the chapters focus on art history and violence broadly defined (dare I say ‘constructed’), but Brian Sandberg’s “‘To have the pleasure of this siege’: envisioning siege warfare during the European wars of religion” may be of interest to military historians more narrowly defined. Michael Wolfe’s earlier works on the subject touch on a similar theme, especially his “Writing the City under Attack: Siege Warfare as Vicarious Experience during the French Wars of Religion” in Cities under Siege (Montalcino, Italy, 1999).
What else am I forgetting?

One response to “Recent publications”

  1. Averrones says :

    Furies: War in Europe, 1450-1700 by Lauro Martines went out a few weeks ago. Not a true monograph, but quite interesting in its focus on suffering that was caused by early modern wars.
