German description: Die Internationalen Brigaden, die im Spanischen Burgerkrieg gegen das von Hitler und Mussolini unterstutzte Franco-Spanien kampften, gelten bis heute als Vorkampfer fur Freiheit und Demokratie in Spanien und uber die spanischen Grenzen hinaus. Dass sich bereits mehr als hundert Jahre zuvor auslandische Freiwillige dazu berufen fuhlten, auf spanischem Boden fur ein freiheitliches Regime zu kampfen, gehort dagegen zu den vergessenen Episoden der europaischen Geschichte.

London and the Culture of Homosexuality explores the relationship between London and male homosexuality from the criminalization of all 'acts of gross indecency' between men in 1885 to the outbreak of the First World War in 1914 - years marked by an intensification in concern about male-male relationships and also by the emergence of an embryonic homosexual rights movement. Taking his cue from literary and lesbian and gay scholars, urban historians and cultural geographers, Matt Cook combines discussion of London's homosexual subculture and various major and minor scandals with a detailed examination of representations in the press, in science and in literature. The conjunction of approaches used in this study provides insights into the development of ideas about the modern homosexual and into the many different ways of comprehending and taking part in London's culture of homosexuality.

London has for most of 2000 years been the hub of the political, economic, and cultural life of the British Isles. No other city has held such a dominant national position for so long. This new study, by the doyen of London historians, describes London's diverse past, from its origins as aRoman settlement at the first bridging of the Thames to the world-class metropolis it is today. It provides a vivid account of a city which was the 'deere sweete' place which Chaucer loved more than any other city on earth, which was for Dickens his 'magic lantern', and to Keats 'a great sea',howling for more wrecks. It is also a story of much contrast and remarkable resilience; through great fires and pestilence, civil war, and the Blitz, London has rebuilt and reinvented itself for each generation.
