Race, Law, and "The Chinese Puzzle" in Imperial Britain by Sascha Auerbach
English | ISBN: 023060949X | edition 2009 | PDF | 280 pages | 3,2 mb

This book examines the historical evolution of Chinese communities in early twentieth-century Britain and their significance in the development of race as a category in British law, politics, and culture. During this period, fears about the moral and economic impact of Chinese immigration, amplified by press sensationalism and lurid fictional portrayals of London’s “Chinatown” as a den of vice and iniquity, prompted mass arrests, deportations, and mob violence. Even after Chinatown was demolished and its inhabitants dispersed, the stereotype of the Chinese criminal mastermind and other “yellow peril” images remained as permanent aspects of British culture.

Royal Wills in Britain from 1509 to 2008

Royal Wills in Britain from 1509 to 2008 by Michael L. Nash
English | 14 Mar. 2017 | ISBN: 1137601442 | 217 Pages | PDF | 2.31 MB

This is the first book on Royal Wills since 1780 and aims to take over where the previous ones (in 1775 and 1780) left off. Therefore the period 1509 to 2008 is covered. It aims to uncover the many dilemmas and conundrums they have had to deal with, against a backdrop of Imperial splendor and political strife, society scandals and in later instances, a disintegrating infrastructure.
