Culture of History by Billie Melman Culture of History, Hardback (June 2006)

Billie Melman takes us on a panoramic voyage of the 'culture of history' which developed in England after the French Revolution. She vividly recovers unexplored aspects of popular history, and unpicks notions of the uncosy past, a place of pleasurable horror and sensationalism, which survived into the 1950s.

Borderlines by Billie Melman Borderlines, Hardback (February 1998)

Weaving together the study of gender during World War I with that of the evolution of nationalism and colonialism, Melman challenges some current interpretations of the gendered experience of war and its relation to national identity.
