The rich cultural and political life of Spain has emerged from its complex history, from the diversity of its peoples, and from continual contact with outside influences. This book traces that history from prehistoric times to the present, focusing particularly on culture, society, politics, and personalities. Written in an engaging style, it introduces readers to the key themes that have shaped Spain's history and culture. These include its varied landscapes and climates; the impact of waves of diverse human migrations; the importance of its location as a bridge between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean and Europe and Africa; and religion, particularly militant Catholic Christianity and its centuries of conflict with Islam and Protestantism, as well as debates over the place of the Church in modern Spain. Illustrations, maps, and a guide to further reading, major cultural figures, and places to see, make the history of this fascinating country come alive.

Australia is the last continent to be settled by Europeans, but it also sustains a people and a culture tens of thousands of years old. For much of the past 200 years the newcomers have sought to replace the old with the new. This book tells how they imposed themselves on the land, and describes how they brought technology, institutions and ideas to make it their own. It relates the advance from penal colony to a prosperous free nation and illustrates how, in a nation created by waves of newcomers, the search for binding traditions has long been frustrated by the feeling of rootlessness. Now, with the realization that colonization began with invasion, present-day Australians are more than ever before coming to terms with their past and recognizing the need to redefine and reposition Australia in a changing world. This is the most up-to-date single-volume Australian history available.

This book was awarded the Calliopean Prize of the Goethe University Frankfurt for the best thesis in American and British studies in 2007. New Zealand appeared relatively late on the general tourist map of the 19th century. Famous for its exotic flora and fauna, a visible native population, and women's suffrage, it also drew American tourists to its shores: How did American travelers perceive New Zealand and its society? Did they connect in a special way to this country? What were their experiences and how did they write about it? Very few travel accounts by American women were published in this period, but these historical documents offer subjective accounts of the author's time and present individual experiences and views on New Zealand: Abby Jane Morrell accompanied her husband on a sealing expedition in the South Seas (1833). Mrs. Woolley's tour through the South Seas included New Zealand and she described the tourist highlights of that time (1906). And Carrie Francis Robertson's unpublished travel journal gives a detailed account of her travels through New Zealand in 1912.

Born in Scotland in 1818, John Webster came to New Zealand via Australia in 1841 (after a violent encounter in the outback which he just escaped unscathed) and spent most of the rest of his life in Hokianga. At the Margin of Empire charts his colourful experiences carving out a fortune as the region's leading timber trader and cultivating connections with the leading figures of the day, Maori and Pakeha. Webster fought alongside Tamati Waka Nene in the Northern War, married one of Nene's relatives and built up his kauri timber business through trade with local chiefs (though at one point awoke to find a plundering party had arrived on his front lawn). He was also friends with Frederick Maning, and visited by George Grey, Richard Seddon and other luminaries of the day.
