Reviews in History – New Reviews 11 June 2009

by

This week we have reviews of books covering two very different subjects. First Sonja Levsen reviews (no. 760) Thomas Weber’s Our Friend ‘The Enemy’: Elite Education in Britain and Germany Before World War 1, which compares the university cultures of the two countries in these key years. His reply can be found here.

Secondly we have a review (no. 761) by Ingrid Tague of Johanna Rickman’s study of extra-marital sex in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, Love, Lust, and License in Early Modern England: Illicit Sex and the Nobility, which again includes a response by the author.

As ever, please feel free to send all comments, including suggestions for books you would like to see on Reviews in History to danny.millum@sas.ac.uk or ihr.reviews@sas.ac.uk.
