The Centre for French History and Culture of the University of St Andrews, together with the Institute on Napoleon and the French Revolution at Florida State University and the University of London Institute in Paris, is pleased to announce the launch of a new publication series for French history.
The history and historical culture of the French-speaking world is a major field of interest among English-speaking scholars. The purpose of this series is to publish a range of shorter monographs and studies, between 25,000 and 50,000 words long, which illuminate the history of this community of peoples between the end of the Middle Ages and the late twentieth century. This series of midigraphs covers the full span of historical themes relating to France: from political history, through military/naval, diplomatic, religious, social, financial, cultural and intellectual history, art and architectural history, to literary culture. Titles in the series are rigorously peer-reviewed through the editorial board and external assessors, and are published as both e-books and paperbacks.
The first title, now available, is: “The New enfant du siècle: Joseph de Maistre as a Writer”, edited by Carolina Armenteros and Richard A. Lebrun (St Andrews, 2010: ISBN 978-1-907548-00-0 [paperback]; ISBN 978-1-907548-01-7 [e-book])
The titles in this series are FREE, and libraries are warmly invited to establish an e-book link in their catalogue systems to this series. To link your webbrowser or your university library to the series and its titles see here.
