through oral history, but the people I interviewed were, of course, adults. The twentieth century’s total wars thrust their way into the domestic space, affecting children as never before. Bombing is just one potentially traumatising trigger in war. Trauma has a number of symptoms specific to children, which alter according to the child’s stage of development. In children under five, traumatic events may provoke anxious attachment behaviour and a loss of recently learnt behaviours, such as toilet training or speech. From around five or seven years old to about twelve, v

A tough but necessary measure?

in the regulation of domestic and overseas dissent during the twentieth century. Here the chapter engages with the British state’s handling of the fascist movements of the 1930s and 1940s, the challenge of Irish republicanism, and emancipatory movements in its overseas colonies. A third section then turns to today’s proscription powers and their deployment against international terrorism. This sets out in detail the reach of contemporary legal powers and their application since 2001. The chapter concludes by discussing the core threads of proscription powers across

Nations and the European Union, and, second, a selection of national proscription regimes that, in interesting ways, interact with the UK’s apparatus. Finally, we turn to an array of issues identified by academics, activists, policymakers and others around the effectiveness and ethical implications of this power. Proscription in the twentieth century Woven throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries is an assortment of struggles for national or ethnic liberation, particularly amongst colonised countries but also in states with long-standing internal

E. A. Freeman and Victorian public morality
Author: Vicky Randall

This book seeks to reclaim E. A. Freeman (1823–92) as a leading Victorian historian and public moralist. Freeman was a prolific writer of history, Regius Professor of Modern History at Oxford, and outspoken commentator on current affairs. His reputation declined sharply in the twentieth century, however, and the last full-scale biography was W. R. W. Stephens’ Life and Letters of Edward A. Freeman (1895). When Freeman is remembered today, it is for his six-volume History of the Norman Conquest (1867–79), celebrations of English progress, and extreme racial views.

Revisiting Freeman and drawing on previously unpublished materials, this study analyses his historical texts in relationship to the scholarly practices and intellectual preoccupations of their time. Most importantly, it draws out Thomas Arnold’s influence on Freeman’s understanding of history as a cyclical process in which the present collapsed into the past and vice versa. While Freeman repeatedly insisted on the superiority of the so-called ‘Aryans’, a deeper reading shows that he defined race in terms of culture rather than biology and articulated anxieties about decline and recapitulation. Contrasting Freeman’s volumes on Western and Eastern history, this book foregrounds religion as the central category in Freeman’s scheme of universal history. Ultimately, he conceived world-historical development as a battleground between Euro-Christendom and the Judeo-Islamic Orient and feared that the contemporary expansion of the British Empire and contact with the East would prove disastrous.

in Irish migration historiography have also emphasised the importance of Britain in the twentieth century as a destination, away from the primacy of post-Famine migration to America. 5 This chapter continues that focus by analysing an under-represented group in the historical literature. It adds to both the historiography of the social history of medicine and to

Much has been written about nursing and its reformation from a dubious, disorderly occupation in the early nineteenth century into a modern, skilled profession by the early twentieth century. The image of Sarah Gamp has been depicted as the model of the archetypal nurse in the 1840s and 1850

, colonial clients, rogues and degenerates. Keen ( 1988 ) devised his classification by looking at Western propaganda produced in the first half of the twentieth century, resulting in ten enemy archetypes: aggressor, faceless threat, enemy of God, barbarian, imperialist, criminal or rogue actor, sadist, rapist-infanticide, vermin-beasts and death incarnate. Enemy archetypes merit attention because each has

The impact of the First World War on the 1918–19 influenza pandemic in Ulster
Patricia Marsh

The last six months of the First World War coincided with one of the most virulent pandemics of the twentieth century. Dubbed ‘the Spanish flu’, it struck in three concurrent waves throughout the world and may have had a global mortality of 100 million. 1 There were three distinct waves of influenza in Ireland, which occurred in June 1918, October

On the occasion of his death in 1944 his obituary writer remarked that with his passing they had lost ‘almost the last of those great figures who dominated the field of psychological medicine in Ireland’. 6 He was born in 1859 into a wealthy, Catholic, mercantile family from Limerick. In 1882 he graduated from the Royal College of Surgeons in

Modern states are based on the premise that legal and political boundaries are congruent with territorial boundaries in what Miles Kahler ( 2006 : 2) has termed ‘jurisdictional congruence’. For most of the twentieth century, it was assumed that examples of jurisdictional incongruence – where politics and geography are not aligned – would fade away into irrelevance, either through
