This collection seeks scholarship on queens and kings who were not expected to become rulers in their own right. In the early modern era many unexpected heirs came to power, but how, why, and the repercussions have never been the subject of one singular volume. These women and men deserve being re-evaluated for their struggles, achievements, and survival.
The primary purpose of H-Albion is to enable historians more easily to discuss research interests, teaching methods and the state of historiography. H-Albion is especially interested in methods of teaching history to graduate and undergraduate students in diverse settings.
As I put the finishing touches on a graduate-level readings list, I'm curious about what people consider to be "must read" books or articles on late 19th/early 20th c. Britain, with a focus on cultural history? That is, what books would you take for granted that a graduate student working in late 19th/early 20th c. should be familiar with? For instance, I'm thinking of things like Harris, Private Lives, Public Spirit, or Walkowitz, City of Dreadful Delight. But I'm wondering what books or articles others would expect. Thanks.
