History

The Don Carlos Enigma: Variations of Historical Fictions

Author: 

Necula, Maria-Cristina, Ph.D., City University of New York Graduate Center

Book CoverThe death of Spain’s Don Carlos, Prince of Asturias, on July 24, 1568, remains an enigma. Several accounts insinuated that the Spanish Crown Prince was murdered while incarcerated by order of his father, King Philip II. The mystery of Don Carlos’s death, supported by ambassadorial accounts that implied foul play, became a fertile subject for defamation campaigns against Philip, fostering an extraordinary fluidity between history and fiction.

Author: 

Gassanly, Murad PhD, Cardiff University

Murad Gassanly, a distinguished international relations scholar and rising British politician, explores how international relations paradigms could be utilized in approaching the vital field of international oil politics, specifically historical issues of international energy politics and comparative case studies of energy transmission networks – the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan Pipeline and the Southern Gas Corridor.

Kings and Conquistadors: Spain’s American Empire

Author: 

Thornton, Richard C., Professor of History and International Affairs, George Washington University

Spain’s American empire began as the serendipitous outgrowth of the search for a shortcut to China. That search derived from two mid-fifteenth-century developments: the Ming Dynasty’s decision to adopt a silver standard for its medium of exchange and the Ottoman Turks’ capture of Constantinople in 1453. China’s great demand for silver and the disruption of the Silk Road drove the need to find alternative access to China.

Capital Punishment in American Courts

Author: 

Whisker, James B.:Professor Emeritus of Political Science, West Virginia University; Kevin R. Spiker, Associate Professor of Political Science, Ohio University

In the 400 years since the first known execution was carried out for treason in Virginia, American jurisdictions have debated both the appropriateness and methods of capital punishment. Over that time, courts have placed varying restrictions on its application, excluding categories of citizens (for example the insane or the underaged) and evaluating and excluding methods of execution by the U.S.
