It is a must have for any scholar of British History.

Praise for Military and the Monarchy:
Well grounded int he archives, this is an important study both of the relationship between the monarch and military and of the British army as it struggled to cope with the consequences of repeated wars, international competition, and technological and institutional change.” — Jeremy Black, Professor of History, University of Exeter

Farrell’s comprehensively researched and convincingly reasoned analysis establishes Cambridge as not a one-dimensional reactionary but as a central figure int he complex redefinition of the relationship of armed forces, crown, and Parliament during the mid-Victorian era.” — Dennis Showalter, Co-editor of If the Allies had Falled: Sixty Alternate Scenarios of World War II

Poetry in the Air!

The University Press of North Georgia held a poetry reading on April 13th to celebrate national poetry month. We would like to thank everyone who participated and attended the reading. Three poets presented very beautiful and very different types of poetry that the audience enjoyed very much. Local poet, Ben Sierachik wowed the audience with his poems that were both humorous and touching.

We are hoping to host several of these types of poetry reading a year, so keep coming back for more information about future readings and events!
