Fair and Unfair Trials in the British Isles, 1800-1940 by David Nash,Anne-Marie Kilday Book Resume:

Adopting a microhistory approach, Fair and Unfair Trials in the British Isles, 1800-1940 provides an in-depth examination of the evolution of the modern justice system. Drawing upon criminal cases and trials from England, Scotland, and Ireland, the book examines the errors, procedural systems, and the ways in which adverse influences of social and cultural forces impacted upon individual instances of justice. The book investigates several case studies of both justice and injustice which prompted the development of forensic toxicology, the implementation of state propaganda and an increased interest in press sensationalism. One such case study considers the trial of William Sheen, who was prosecuted and later acquitted of the murder of his infant child at the Old Baily in 1827, an extraordinary miscarriage of justice that prompted outrage amongst the general public. Other case studies include trials for treason, theft, obscenity and blasphemy. Nash and Kilday root each of these cases within their relevant historical, cultural, and political contexts, highlighting changing attitudes to popular culture, public criticism, protest and activism as significant factors in the transformation of the criminal trial and the British judicial system as a whole. Drawing upon a wealth of primary sources, including legal records, newspaper articles and photographs, this book provides a unique insight into the evolution of modern criminal justice in Britain.

The Dawn of the Cheap Press in Victorian Britain by Martin Hewitt Book Resume:

The Dawn of the Cheap Press provides the first detailed study of the mid-Victorian campaign for the repeal of the taxes on knowledge for over a hundred years. Using the recently discovered papers of the Association for the Promotion of the Repeal of the Taxes on Knowledge and taking advantage of new forms of research made possible by the digitisation of nineteenth century newspapers, it assesses the impact of the removal of the last surviving legal disabilities on the newspaper industry, the nature of journalism, and the cultures and practices of newspaper reading. The book demonstrates that the campaign against the taxes on knowledge retained broad popular appeal, and played an important role in the politics of mid-Victorian budgets. It not only makes a seminal contribution to the history of the nineteenth century press and print culture, but also illuminates the culture and politics of mid-Victorian Britain, offers an important re-reading of the history of extra-parliamentary pressure group politics and provides new insights into the origins of Gladstonian Liberalism.

Secret Commissions by Stephen Donovan,Matthew Rubery Book Resume:

Lurid, controversial, and vulnerable to accusations of titillation or rabble-rousing, the works of Victorian investigative journalism collected here nonetheless brought unseen suffering into the light of day. Even today their exposure has the power to shock. As one investigator promised, “The Report of our Secret Commission will be read to-day with a shuddering horror that will thrill throughout the world.” Secret Commissions brings together nineteen key documents of Victorian investigative journalism. Their authors range from well-known writers such as Charles Dickens, Henry Mayhew, and W.T. Stead to now-forgotten names such as Hugh Shimmin, Elizabeth Banks, and Olive Malvery. Collectively, they show how unsparing descriptions of social injustice became regular features of English journalism long before the advent of American-style “muckraking.” The reports address topics as varied as child abuse, animal cruelty, juvenile prostitution, sweat-shops, slums, gypsies, abortion, infanticide, and other controversial social issues. The collection features detailed chapter introductions, original illustrations, a historical overview of investigative reporting in the nineteenth-century press, and suggestions for further reading.

Consuming Behaviours by Erika Rappaport,Sandra Trudgen Dawson,Mark J. Crowley Book Resume:

In twentieth-century Britain, consumerism increasingly defined and redefined individual and social identities. New types of consumers emerged: the idealized working-class consumer, the African consumer and the teenager challenged the prominent position of the middle and upper-class female shopper. Linking politics and pleasure, Consuming Behaviours explores how individual consumers and groups reacted to changes in marketing, government control, popular leisure and the availability of consumer goods.From football to male fashion, tea to savings banks, leading scholars consider a wide range of products, ideas and services and how these were marketed to the British public through periods of imperial decline, economic instability, war, austerity and prosperity. The development of mass consumer society in Britain is examined in relation to the growing cultural hegemony and economic power of the United States, offering comparisons between British consumption patterns and those of other nations.Bridging the divide between historical and cultural studies approaches, Consuming Behaviours discusses what makes British consumer culture distinctive, while acknowledging how these consumer identities are inextricably a product of both Britain’s domestic history and its relationship with its Empire, with Europe and with the United States.

L'américanisation en Europe au XXe siècle : économie, culture, politique. Volume 1 by Collectif Book Resume:

« Américanisation » est un mot entré de plus en plus dans le langage courant qui exprime des réalités fort diverses. Ce volume analyse les rapports entre l'Europe et l'Amérique selon une vision macro-économique large. De l'Espagne à la Finlande, de la Grande-Bretagne à l'Union Soviétique, les différents chapitres de ce livre montrent comment le modèle américain fut une référence autant pour les entreprises qu'aux trois niveaux politique, économique et culturel. Ils abordent pour cela le sujet selon quatre grands thèmes qui sont : les prémices de l'américanisation avant 1945 ; la dimension politique du projet de l'Amérique, les voies spécifiques de l'américanisation, l'enjeu propre des pays de l'Europe de l'Est. Ils présentent une analyse de la première phase du processus d'américanisation durant laquelle l'introduction du système américain de production revêt un caractère exceptionnel. Ils montrent comment dans l'entre-deux-guerres, une moindre présence américaine au niveau politique est compensée par leur intervention sur le double plan de l'économie et de la technologie. Ils insistent sur le tournant majeur que constitue la Seconde Guerre Mondiale après laquelle les États-Unis programment désormais les transferts culturels et technologiques ainsi que de leurs valeurs et de leur modèle d'organisation sociale. Ils insistent sur l'accueil alors réservé à cette démarche, consistant à la fois en un accueil enthousiaste et une très forte résistance. Ce livre montre aussi l'existence de décalages chronologiques dans le transfert des diverses composantes du modèle américain. Dans la plupart des pays européens, le modèle de consommation de masse a pénétré plus vite que les technologies, les modèles d'organisation de la production et de la gestion de l'entreprise. Il confirme également que l'hégémonie américaine se nourrit d'une relation de dialogue avec l'Europe. L'américanisation consiste davantage en une adaptation sélective, en une hybridation qu'en une adoption.

Un terrain contesté by Tamir Sorek,Aline Weill Book Resume:

Depuis les années 1990, le football est devenu une institution majeure dans la culture populaire des citoyens arabo-palestiniens d'Israël. De plus en plus de joueurs arabes intègrent les meilleurs clubs israéliens ou, comble de la réussite, l'équipe nationale. étant donné le statut marginal de la minorité arabo-palestinienne en Israël, ce processus est révélateur des tensions et des contradictions fondamentales à l'oeuvre dans l'identité collective de ce pays. Mêlant une approche sociologique, anthropologique et historique, Tamir Sorek analyse, à travers le pouvoir symbolique de ce sport, les ressources politiques qu'il recèle. Utilisé par des minorités ethniques et nationales comme un champ de protestation sociale, le football peut également servir de voie d'intégration sociale et politique. Mais jusqu'où ? L'égalité dans la sphère du football ne fait-elle pas oublier les discriminations entre Juifs et Arabes dans de nombreux autres domaines ? Alors, modèle égalitaire, enclave d'intégration ou enjeu d'un nationalisme de substitution ?
