This study examines how political news was concealed, manipulated and distorted in late Jacobean England. Using a wide range of manuscript sources, it examines how news was managed and interpreted during a period of acute political and religious conflict. The book analyses how the flow of information to and from the King was managed by his Secretaries of State and diplomats, and how the King prevented information about his policies from leaking into the wider public sphere. The 'outward shows' James made to signal his intentions and mislead a variety of audiences are investigated, as well as the ways in which these 'performances' could backfire and undermine royal authority. It also examines the sceptical and often cynical reception of news, and the political significance of the rumours that circulated in court and country. This work advances new arguments about censorship, counsel and the formation of policy, propaganda and royal image-making, political rumours and the relationship between elite and popular politics, as well as shedding new light on the nature and success of James I's style of rule. In doing so, it shows news to be a source of influence and even power in Jacobean England.

Der Krieg um das Heilige Land- erstmals dargestellt aus christlicher und aus muslimischer Sicht. Diese grosse Gesamtdarstellung nimmt die politischen und religiösen Beweggründe aller Seiten ernst und veranschaulicht die immense Kriegslogistik. In packenden Szenen schildert Asbridge all die Belagerungen und Eroberungen und entwirft lebendige Porträts von Saladin und Richard Löwenherz, dem tragischen Leprakönig Balduin IV. oder der Jerusalemer Königin Melisende. Thomas Asbridge berichtet erstmals gleichberechtigt und in wechselnder Perspektive von den von Christen wie von Muslimen verübten Grausamkeiten und erduldeten Leiden. Ausführlich macht der polyglotte Historiker Gebrauch auch von den arabischen Quellen. Asbridge nimmt nicht nur die politischen, sondern auch die religiösen Beweggründe aller Seiten ernst. Auch von überraschend freundlichen Begegnungen zwischen Kreuzfahrern und Sarazenen erfahren wir: von Momenten des interkulturellen Austauschs, Beispielen friedlicher Koexistenz im Heiligen Land, Gesten religiöser Toleranz und Zeugnissen der Freundschaft über die feindlichen Lager hinweg.

Im Jahr 1936 geht George Orwell in die Industriestädte Nordenglands, um an Ort und Stelle zu beobachten, wie Bergleute im Alltag arbeiten und wohnen. Er steigt mit in die Gruben hinunter und berichtet aufmerksam, sachlich, genau, mit Einfühlung und Gespür für die vielfachen Zusammenhänge. Diese Erfahrung führt zu Reflexionen über den Sozialismus als umsichtigen, schwierigen Weg zu Gerechtigkeit und Freiheit.
