News Networks in Seventeenth Century Britain and Europe by Joad Raymond

Book Description

Examining new research, this excellent volume presents a series of case-studies exemplifying the new newspaper history. Using cross-cultural comparisons, Joad Raymond establishes an agenda for answering crucial questions central to the future histories of the political and literary culture of early-modern Britain: * What is the relationship between the circulation of news in Britain and communication networks elsewhere in Europe? * Was the British development of the media unique? * What are the specific rhetorical properties of news-communication in seventeeth-century Britain? * What was the relationship between commerce and politics? * How do local exchanges of news relate to national practices and institutions? Previously published as a special issue of the journal Media History, this book is compulsory reading for researchers and students of European history and media studies alike.

Milton's Angels by Joad Raymond Milton's Angels, Paperback (February 2013)

Milton's Angels is a study of writing - theological, scientific, political, and poetic - about angels in 16th-century and 17th-century Britain. It demonstrates that angels were integral to the Protestant imagination and argues that Paradise Lost is a poem about angels that is both shockingly literal and sublimely imaginative.

Conversations with Angels by Joad Raymond Conversations with Angels, Hardback (August 2011)

Based on refractions of earlier beliefs, modern angels - at once terrible and comforting, frighteningly other and reassuringly beneficent - have acquired a powerful symbolic value. This interdisciplinary study looks at how humans conversed with angels in medieval and early modern Europe, and how they explained and represented these conversations.

Oxford History of Popular Print Culture by Joad Raymond Oxford History of Popular Print Culture, Hardback (April 2011)

From the early sixteenth century through to the later seventeenth, governments, institutions, and individuals learned to use cheaply-produced printed texts to inform, entertain, and persuade. This authoritative collection of essays examines the developing role of popular printed texts in the first two centuries of print in Britain and Ireland.
