Countering Revolution in Transnational Networks, Ideas and Movements (c. 1700‒1930)
This volume presents a fresh picture of the historical development of “conservatism” from the late 17th to the early 20th century. The book explores the broader geographies and transnational dimensions of conservatism and counterrevolution. The contributions show how counterrevolutionary concepts did not emerge in isolation, but resulted from the interplay between ideas, media, networks, and institutions. Like 19th-century liberalism and socialism, conservatism was the product of traveling ideas and people. This study describes how exile, mobility, and international sociability shaped counterrevolutionary identities. The volume presents case studies on the intersection of political philosophy, scholarly practices, international politics, and governmental bureaucracies. Furthermore, Cosmopolitan Conservatisms offers new approaches to the study of conservatism, including the prisms of ecology, gender, and digital history.

The nature of time has haunted humanity through the ages. Some conception of time has always entered into humanity's ideas about mortality and immortality, and permanence and change, so that concepts of time are of fundamental importance in the study of religion, philosophy, literature, history, and mythology. How humanity experiences time physiologically, psychologically and socially enters into the research of the behavioral sciences, and time as a factor of structure and change is an essential consideration in the biological and physical sciences. On one aspect or another, the study of time cuts across all disciplines. The International Society for the Study of Time has as its goal the interdisciplinary and comparative study of time: http://www.studyoftime.org
Brill’s 'Mapping the Past' is a peer-reviewed book series exploring and revitalizing the relationship between the history of mapping and the mapping of history. The series editors stimulate to explore the potential of maps for the study of the past, and accordingly the series aims at cross-fertilizing the history of cartography with disciplines such as history, landscape studies, geography, art history, digital humanities, urban planning and heritage studies. Volumes take the study of maps and mapmaking practices as a crucial starting point for understanding the evolutions, representations and imaginations of past societies, landscapes and territories. They may equally present the results of broader collaborative research projects or detailed case studies, insofar they have wider methodological and theoretical relevance. The series has no temporal or geographical limitations and both monographs and coherently presented edited volumes are welcomed.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals or full manuscripts to the series editors Bram Vannieuwenhuyze and Iason Jongepier, or to the publisher at Brill, Wendel Scholma.
