A Modern History of Politics and Violence
Modern History of Politics and Violence is a book series, published by Bloomsbury, which promotes scholarship scrutinising the diverse histories of political violence in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, across the globe.
Volumes in the series examine a wide variety of politicised violence, from histories of genocide, to cultural experiences of war, to the nature and impact of terrorism, to the history of violence in colonial and postcolonial situations. As well as thinking about perpetrators of violence, the series also seeks to examine the impact of violence on victims, politicized memories of political violence, and ideologies and cultural dynamics that are predicated on violent themes.
The series is now looking for new submissions. Book proposals examining histories of political violence in Asian, African, American and Middle East contexts will be looked on favourably. We are also keen to receive more book projects focused focus on European history, especially related to the impact of communism and fascism on twentieth century Europe.
Moreover, we are looking for proposals for monographs or edited collections that engage with themes including:
– Fascism, anti-fascism and violence
– Immigration, precarity and violence
– Political violence and gender
– Transnational networks and political violence
– Faith, religion and violence
– Media and the licencing of violence
– Histories of terrorism
– Communism and political violence
To discuss ideas for book projects that related to any of these themes, or to pitch a project that addresses the topic of violence and modernity in another way, then please feel free to get in touch to discuss your proposal.
