CULTURE, AUTHORITY AND CRISIS: ENGLAND AND ITS NEIGHBOURS – UPHPJS-30-3


The best overview of the fifteenth century is A J Pollard, Late Medieval England, 1399-1509 (Longman, 2000), which may be available from libraries – it is now out of print, I believe. Ralph A Griffiths (ed.), The Short Oxford History of the British Isles: The Fourteenth and Fifteenth Centuries (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2003) is a collection of essays that constitutes the best short introduction to this longer period.

A very useful survey is M Hicks, English Political Culture in the Fifteenth Century (Routledge, 2002), ISBN 0 415 21764 4. A convenient short account of English political history from 1307 to 1509 is provided in K Dockray, William Shakespeare, the Wars of the Roses, and the Historians (Stroud, 2002), chs 2-6.


An on-Line textbook history of medieval England by Stephen Muhlberger, written for US undergrads, is at http://www.the-orb.net/textbooks/muhlberger/muhlindex.html

Two brief introductory overviews of the period are provided by:


N Saul, ‘Britain, 1400’, History Today, 50 (July, 2000), pp. 38-43

S Gunn, ‘Britain, 1500’, History Today, 50 (August, 2000), pp. 38-44


The following books provide accounts of the political and/or social/economic/cultural history of England for parts of our period. Bear in mind that no one book gives a full overview of the entire period.
H S Bennett, The Pastons and their England (Cambridge, 1922)

THE COLD WAR WORLD – UPHPKB-30-3

Please, do not be alarmed by the length of the reading list below. You are not expected to read all or even most of the books listed here. The aim is to provide you with choice and alternatives in case a particular listed book is not available from the library. The library also has a large collection of e-journals containing articles that are relevant to this course. For seminars and assignments, students are encouraged to locate journal in the American Historical Review, Journal of American History, Diplomatic History, Journal of American Studies, Diplomacy and Statecraft, Cold War History, Journal of Cold War Studies, Journal of Contemporary History, etc., etc. Many of the most important books can also be found in the short loan section. Suggestions for specialised reading for each seminar will be provided in the module handbook and also during seminar sessions.


To get the most out of this module you must go beyond the minimal amount of reading required for each seminar. Seminars function best if everyone has done the preparatory reading, has thought about different interpretations of key themes or events and comes along prepared to discuss the subject in depth. Do not leave it up to the tutor or fellow students to do the work for you in individual sessions.

THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR, 1936-1939 – UPHPLA-30-3


For background, acquire a copy of Helen Graham, The Spanish Civil War. A Very Short Introduction (Oxford, 2005). (It’s a lovely little book. The introductory chapter is VERY good for background and the rest gives you a good summary of the war).
For more detailed political background (which will benefit you enormously if you read and digest it) see Raymond Carr, Modern Spain, 1875-1980, (Oxford, 1980). Read particularly the chapters prior to and including the civil war.

 

Here are some excellent introductory texts which are highly recommendable as the basis of this preparatory reading. ALL students should devour at least one of these in addition to the above BEFORE the start of next year (whether they have studied modern Spanish history before or not):



 

George Esenwein and Adrian Shubert, Spain at War, (London: Longman, 1995) (Probably the most recommendable, at the moment, as a module “text book” to refer to week-by-week)

 

Julián Casanova, The Spanish Republic and Civil War, (Cambridge, 2010) (A very readable synthesis which benefits from the most recent research) (Also an E-book)



 

Francisco Romero Salvadó, The Spanish Civil War (Palgrave, 2005). (Another good and highly readable synthesis).

 

Paul Preston, A Concise History of the Spanish Civil War, (London: Fontana, 1996) (An up-dated version of his The Spanish Civil War, London, 1986; either will do).



 

Raymond Carr, The Civil War in Spain, (London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1986) (A re-print of Carr’s The Spanish Tragedy. The Civil War in Perspective, London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1977; though this is now a little dated, it remains useful).

 

For the more adventurous among you – and for those who want to gain some clues about the kind of thing that is to follow over the course of the year – see:

 

Michael Richards, A Time of Silence: Civil War and the Culture of Repression in Franco’s Spain, 1936-1945 (Cambridge: CUP, 1998).



 

Chris Ealham and Michael Richards (eds), The Splintering of Spain: Cultural History and the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939, (Cambridge: CUP, 2005).


AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY DURING THE PERIOD OF THE “HIGH COLD WAR”: FROM THE ADOPTION OF CONTAINMENT TO FLEXIBLE RESPONSE – UPHPLB-30-3

Please, do not be alarmed by the length of the reading list below. You are not expected to read all or even most of the books listed here. The aim is to provide you with choice and alternatives in case a particular listed book is not available from the library. The library also has a large collection of e-journals containing articles that are relevant to this course. For seminars and assignments, students are encouraged to locate journal in the American Historical Review, Journal of American History, Diplomatic History, Journal of American Studies, Diplomacy and Statecraft, Cold War History, Journal of Cold War Studies, Journal of Contemporary History, etc., etc. Many of the most important books can also be found in the short loan section. Suggestions for specialised reading for each seminar will be provided in the module handbook and also during seminar sessions.


Special subject modules require intensive, detailed examination of a historical subject. To get the most out of this module you must go beyond the minimal amount of reading required for each seminar. Seminars function best if everyone has done the preparatory reading, has thought about different interpretations of key themes or events and comes along prepared to discuss the subject in depth. Do not leave it up to the tutor or fellow students to do the work for you in individual sessions.

WAR, CULTURE AND SOCIETY IN TWENTIETH CENTURY BRITAIN – UPHPLC-30-3


General Reading
You should start by familiarising yourself with key events and people, making sure that you understand the political framework for both wars. General texts about Britain in the twentieth century can be helpful for this. For example,
J Black Modern British History since 1900

T O Lloyd Empire to Welfare State

B Porter Britannia’s Burden

M Pugh The Making of Modern British Politics

M Pugh State and Society: A Social and Political History of Britain
There are important overviews of both world wars;
A Marwick Britain in a Century of Total War

S R Grayzel Women and the First World War

R Pope War and Society in Britain, 1899-1948

A Marwick The Deluge (WW1)

A Calder The People’s War (WW2)

S Rose Which People’s War? (Key text for WW2)


For a discussion of the debates on war and social change see;

Local Studies

John F. Sweets, Choices in Vichy France (Oxford: OUP, 1994)



Robert Gildea, Marianne in Chains (London: Macmillan, 2002)
The best – and most important – books on Vichy overall are those of Paxton, Burrin and Jackson: Paxton provides the classic account of Vichy and collaboration, the starting point for all subsequent works; Burrin looks at collaboration in detail and points to the many gradations of ‘accommodation’ to the Occupation that existed; Jackson provides an up-to-date synthesis of recent scholarship on Vichy. If you want to buy one book, I would strongly advise you to invest in Jackson (who also spends quite a lot of space on the 1930s, despite the title).
