When Our World Became Christian: 312 - 394

"A vigorously written interpretative essay about the triumph of Christianity in late antiquity, by a selfprofessed unbeliever. Veyne, always as sensitive to the process of writing history as he is to the study of the past itself, approaches the early history of Christianity as an avant-garde religion. He examines the implications of its appropriation by the state with great energy and in an uncompromising manner."

America's Teilhard: Christ and Hope in the 1960s

"In her comprehensive study America's Teilhard, Susan Sack examines the many and complex reasons for the rise and fall of Teilhard's popularity with the American people during the 1960s and gives valuable insights into the dynamic.

Decline of Buddhism in India: A Fresh Perspective

Interestingly, the subject itself has remained one of the most neglected topics in the history of India. In this book apart from the history of the decline of Buddhism in I...

King James VI and I and the Reunion of Christendom

"In the era of the 180-page monograph so favored by cost-conscious publishers today, scholars will be grateful to Patterson (and Cambridge University Press) for the comprehensiveness of this work.
