The Survival Of The Crown
- Hardback - Book Guild
In this, the second, and concluding, part of his masterly account of Mary Queen of Scots, her son James, and the hoary question of their succession to the English throne, Robert Steddall takes us from the aftermath of Bothwell's murder, through Mary's imprisonment and execution for treason, to James's eventual coronation as James I of England. In this volume, James moves to centre-stage and his complex, neurotic personality is explored. What exactly was his relationship with his mother, removed from his side at such an early age, and how can we explain his seeming lack of feeling with regard to her fate?

Scenes From The Suburbs: Suburban Space In US Film And Television
- Hardback - Edinburgh University Press
This is a study of the representation of suburban space in US film and television. Suburbia.

We all know what the suburbs are about. Or do we? This book looks again at the filmic and televised spaces we think we know so well. How are these spaces built up? What is it that makes us recognize them as suburbs? How do they function?
