"News, Policy & Politics Magazine Archive offers unprecedented digital access to the archival runs of 15 major 20th/21st-century consumer magazines covering such fields as the history of politics, current events, public policy, and international relations. Each title has a deep backfile--the earliest content dates from 1918--and every issue from the first through to recent times is scanned from cover to cover in full color. Central to this collection is the archive of Newsweek, one of the 20th century's most prominent, highest circulating general interest magazines. In combination these publications provide access to a rich seam of contemporary responses to the key events, trends, and preoccupations of the period, from a range of perspectives. In addition to the representation of various political and religious orientations, the collection is international in scope. Alongside leading US publications such as Newsweek and In These Times are magazines that are published outside of North America and/or are engaged with international affairs, such as Europe, New Internationalist, and NATO Review. The range of subject areas served by this collection is broad; in addition to conspicuous subjects such as modern history, politics, economics, and law, the content extends into numerous other research areas, including women's studies (women in politics, women's rights), ethnic studies (international development, diplomacy, sustainability), media history (communications, journalism), and many others."

Rich in primary source content from world-class libraries and archives, The First World War: Propaganda and Recruitment provides an essential insight into propaganda and recruitment throughout the Great War.Propaganda, in its written and visual form, is an effective tool that employs multiple basic techniques: to exploit existing beliefs; establish authority; create fear; use humour; appeal to patriotism; to be selective and create a ?version? of the truth; to name but a few. The study of propaganda during the First World War becomes at once a study of the relationship between the government, the press and the public. The government?s control over the mass media and the entire propaganda machine were deemed vital in demanding the national support needed for ultimate victory. Such victory was only attainable by sustaining allied soldiers and civilians, so recruitment propaganda, appealing to the patriotic hearts and minds of many, was crucial at the very outbreak of war. The vast and varied range of material in this resource, from aerial leaflets and atrocity propaganda to international posters, postcards, cartoons and political pamphlets, showcases the methods exploited in wartime propaganda and their paths of dissemination. Themes of recruitment, training and morale are also examined through items such as tribunal case files, Kitchener's papers, recruitment listings, training manuals and minute books of both parliamentary and local recruiting committees.

"An emerging field of study that explores the Hispanic minority in the United States, Latino Studies is enriched by an interdisciplinary perspective. Historians, sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists, demographers, linguists, as well as religion, ethnicity, and culture scholars, among others, bring a varied, multifaceted approach to the understanding of a people whose roots are all over the Americas and whose permanent home is north of the Rio Grande. Oxford Bibliographies in Latino Studies offers an authoritative, trustworthy, and up-to-date intellectual map to this ever-changing discipline." -- editorial page.
