An international symposium called by a Finnish university, held in Edinburgh in 1988 about "Enlightenment, Rights and Revolution", focusing on social and legal history as well as history of ideas.

A 400+ volume of papers from the symposium was published in 1989, but it must have been a very productive symposium, because they continued publishing themed books of papers from the symposioum for several years totalling 7 volumes in all. Of course it is some hit-and-miss collections, but the interesting papers make up for all the boring ones. It's a shame the symposium was before my time, I would have loved to have participated.

Bought for my mum who is going on holiday to 'Carthage' in the autumn, but I'll read it when she's finished with it!

I am a huge fan of the TV series

The Montefeltro Conspiracy: A Renaissance Mystery Decoded: Marcello Simonetta: 9780385524681: Amazon.com: Books

Plus I also bought three books in Italian language(one about the history of the clashes between the Hellenistic phalanx and the Roman legion, one about the military organization of Venice during the XVII century and the last one dealing with the wars and insurgency in Caucasus)

I also finally ordered
Japonius Tyrannus (Japonica Neerlandica): Jeroen Lamers: 9789074822220: Amazon.com: Books
Not exactly cheap but I was able to "extort"(using my deceptive talk) some money out of my dad
Lamers book is well worth the money. Still waiting for his translation of the Shincho ko ki to drop a little bit in price, though.

I have his history of D-Day which I thought was okay, and one about B-24 squadrons (forgotten the name sorry ) which is good.
