V. F. Minorsky and C. J. Edmonds Correspondence (1928-1965)
This volume is an annotated correspondence, of nearly forty years, between two prominent Orientalists. The letters cover a range of topics related to the Zagros Mountains, its peoples, their history, culture, and languages. They also offer a glimpse into the personal lives and careers of the two scholars, give valuable insights on the development of the field of Kurdish Studies, and to an extent outline the contours of what the two referred to as Zagrology.
This peer-reviewed book series publishes research monographs and edited collections on modern and contemporary history. The remit of the series is broad in chronological (nineteenth to twenty-first centuries) and geographic (global coverage) terms to promote a multi-dimensional conversation on the diverse expressions of the ‘modern condition’; and on how particular ‘modern’ forces and processes shaped the world in micro- and macro-scales. The series fosters critical reflection on the study of modern concepts and ideologies; of political, cultural, and social change; of mobilities and exchanges within and across conventional borders; and of conflicts between competing actors, groups or ideas.

The series welcomes submissions from scholars of political, cultural, social, and intellectual history, as well as of scholars whose work on the modern world lies at the fruitful intersection of history, political science, cultural studies, and international relations. We particularly encourage interdisciplinary submissions that traverse traditional historical, geographical, or methodological boundaries; engage with transnational and comparative perspectives; promote long-term analysis of drivers and processes of historical change; and develop new perspectives on the fascinating plurality of modern and contemporary phenomena. We are committed to giving space to new scholarship that questions conventional assumptions about, and understandings of, the modern/contemporary world; or brings in focus previously under-studied topics and areas.

Authors who are interested in submitting proposals/full manuscripts or wish to discuss any publishing ideas that may fit the series are invited to contact either the series editor Aristotle Kallis or the publisher at Brill, Alessandra Giliberto.

Modern South Asia and the Global Circulation of Ideas
This collection brings together case studies that cover a wide spectrum: from Hindu, Buddhist, Jaina traditions through reformist ventures such as the Brahmos, to issues in modern Islam and Judaism.
The first part of the book explores idioms of self-fashioning in global platforms and religious congresses. The second part explicates the nature of movements of such ideas. Cumulatively, they offer fresh and invaluable insights into their histories in modern South Asia against the backdrop of, and in relation to, wider transcultural global flows.

Conflict and the Legacy of Exclusion
This is the first work exploring the colonial roots, modern context, trajectory and legacy of the Shining Path insurgency in the region of Huancavelica, Peru, one of Peru’s most impoverished and Quechua-speaking regions. The use of terroristic violence to implement a revolutionary and exclusivist ideology was without precedent in Latin America, presaging later movements such as ISIS. Integrating interviews, testimonials, survey data and the vast primary and secondary literature on the insurgency, this work examines how Huancavelican communities experienced and continue to shoulder the consequences of an exterminatory conflict thirty years after the insurgency was largely, although not entirely, defeated.
Erstmals widmet sich eine große Edition den Praktiken der Monarchie im 19. Jahrhundert. In internationaler Perspektive stellt das Quellenwerk in einer neuen Folge der traditionsreichen Acta Borussica bislang ungedruckte Aktenstücke für die Forschung zusammen. Die dritte Reihe veranschaulicht am preußischen Beispiel, welche Anpassungen die europäische Monarchie an eine Gesellschaft im Wandel vollzog. Wirksame Integrationsleistungen wie auch deren Grenzen werden greifbar. Die ersten Bände widmen sich Funktionen, Entscheidungsformen und Entscheidungsinstanzen des Hofes. Später stehen performative Praktiken am preußischen Hof, wie sie im Modus höfischer Konkurrenz auch durch kulturelle Transfers aus den europäischen Nachbarländern geformt wurden, sowie Strategien und Reaktionen der Monarchie auf den gesellschaftlichen Wandel im Blickpunkt.

For the first time, a large multi-volume edition work will reflect practices of the monarchy in the 19th century.
In international perspective, this edition of primary sources presents previously unpublished archival documents for further research. The Prussian example illustrates the strategies and reactions of European monarchies when they had to adapt to a changing society. Effective integration achievements as well as their limits become tangible. The first volumes are focusing on the different functions of court members, on deciders and the forms of decision making at the court. Other volumes will highlight e.g. the performative practices at the Prussian court as they were shaped in competition processes and by cultural transfer from neighboring European countries.

The nineteenth century has witnessed the unprecedented development of classical physics, the multifarious use of physics and chemistry in industry, the rise of evolutionary theories in biology and geology, and a number of groundbreaking developments. Though most of these trends continued into the twentieth century, the theories of relativity and quantum mechanics transformed radically the classical view of physics and research in the life sciences revealed a number of astonishing results. Furthermore, during the second half of the twentieth century, “Big Science” has come to characterize the dramatic institutional metamorphoses of science. Historians and sociologists of science, in ever increasing numbers, have been offering many new and insightful accounts into the sciences of these two centuries while at the same time, a number of historical and historiographic issues have been the subject of lively discussions among them. Aiming to contribute to this growing scholarly interest, Brill Publishers to this growing scholarly interest, Brill Publishers present this peer-reviewed series in the History of Modern Science with emphasis on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

History of Modern Science was initially published as a subseries of History of Science and Medicine Library; one volume appeared as part of that subseries.

Series Editor:
This is a peer-reviewed series that explores the ways in which industrialization has shaped the production, distribution, and reception of books from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the present day. This period is marked by the introduction of new technologies – not just of manufacture, but also of transportation and communication – that have profoundly altered the ways that books are created and circulated and that have, among other things, enabled the rise of international publishing conglomerates that can reach a global mass market. The series investigates every aspect of the book in the industrial world, from the reorganization of the book and publishing trades to the present impact of digital texts and the internet.
