New kid on the block

No, not Donnie, Danny, Jordan, Johnny, and Joey. (To save face, I’ll admit I had to look their names up).

I’m talking about a new publisher, or at least a new publisher to me: I don’t recall their name in my roundup of two years back, and they honestly hadn’t been on my radar until recently. That would be independent academic/popular Bloomsbury press, based in the UK. Titles of interest for us EMEMHians include:

  • Loades, D. M. The Fighting Tudors. Kew, Richmond, Surrey, UK: National Archives, 2009.
  • Martines, Lauro. Furies: War in Europe, 1450-1700. New York: Bloomsbury Press, 2013.
  • Davies, Brian. Empire and Military Revolution in Eastern Europe: Russia’s Turkish Wars in the Eighteenth Century. New York: Continuum, 2013.
  • Lyons, Adam. The 1711 Expedition to Quebec: Politics and the Limitations of British Global Strategy. London: Bloomsbury, 2013.
As you can see from the titles, a variety of popular works alongside monographs – and they have their mandatory share of Ancient and Modern military history as well.
They’ve also acquired several backlist titles, including republishing classic studies like Geoffrey Holmes’ British Politics in the Age of Anne, as well as David Chambers’ War, Culture and Society in Renaissance Venice: Essays in Honour of John Hale.

Oh yeah. I think they have something to do with Winston too.
