Drawing on new research from local archives as well as reinterpretations of published literature,Power and the Peopledescribes how England remained governable between 1525 and 1640, despite the wars, famine, epidemics, and dynastic and religious crises of the period. The book surveys the mechanisms of authority at various levels, from the street and alehouse to the manor and the royal court. Maintaining order was a difficult challenge, given that England had no standing army or professional police, and Alison Wall investigates everything from the roles of village constables to the social cohesiveness that came from civic celebrations and participatory politics. Her book provides students with a rich perspective on the social world and political culture of early modern England.

Max Beckmann is widely acknowledged as one of Germany's leading twentieth-century artists. A figurative painter throughout his career Beckmann depicted the world around him with an unparalleled intensity. His art emerges directly from his experiences of the First and Second World Wars the political upheavals of the 1920s and 1930s the rise of Nazism exile in Amsterdam and his final emigration to the United States. By capturing the objects and events that surrounded him Beckmann hoped to grasp the deeper mysteries underlying human existence. He perceived and painted the world as a vast stage at once real and magical upon which his own life and the traumas of contemporary history were closely intertwined."On My Painting" can give a valuable insight into understanding his work. It was composed in 1938 at a crucial juncture in Beckmann's life just a year after he was included the ‰ÛÏDegenerate Art‰Û� exhibition in Nazi Germany. It was read by him at the opening of the ‰ÛÏTwentieth Century German Art‰Û� exhibition.With an introduction by Mayen Beckmann the artist's granddaughter and an afterword by Sean Rainbird.

Dismissing attempts to characterize his paintings and graphic work as connected to stylistic movements or to historical events, Max Beckmann positioned himself above the earthly realm and claimed that he painted 'truths impossible to put in words'. In contrast, this volume consists of essays that relate his work to the tangible circumstances of its production and reception. Unlike much earlier scholarship that has focused on stylistic analysis or on interpretations of the work's 'eternal truth', these essays contextualize aspects of Beckmann's early, middle, and late career by way of detailed reference to contemporary music, film, philosophy, theatre, history, sports, and exile. The anthology thus expands Beckmann scholarship, which only recently has begun to consider context in relation to his position as both a central and an outside figure in the history of modern art in the twentieth century.
