About the Author

Ulinka Rublack teaches early modern European history at Cambridge University and is a Fellow of St John's College. One of the most original historians of her generation, she is widely known for her books Reformation Europe and Crimes of Women in Early Modern Germany (the latter published by Oxford University Press) and, more recently, Dressing Up: Cultural Identity in Renaissance Europe, which is also published by Oxford University Press.


`True companionship involves creative disagreement, unremitting stimulation, and constant accessibility. Ulinka Rublack has created a true companion volume for readers of recent and current historical writing. In an astonishing feat of editorship, she brings together some of the best living historians and some insuperable essays on the state and drift of the subject. ' Felipe Fernandez-Armesto
