It was May 2013 when Thomas Paradis convened in Siena, Italy, with a cohort of American faculty and students to lead a two-month inaugural study-abroad program. After a harrowing journey across the ocean, students and faculty alike soon realized that adapting to a foreign culture and language would be more challenging than they expected, especially amid one of the world’s more authentic community festivals—the Palio horse race. Paradis weaves witty stories of personal discovery with a crash course on Siena and its ferocious twice-yearly horse race. As the July 2 race and its related rituals draw closer, Paradis details how he and his wife uncovered the impressive local communities that underlie the life and blood of the age-old Palio in order to better understand what drives the passion of its residents. When the race finally begins, Paradis provides a compelling upfront view of the action and the race’s aftermath, pulling in the collective experiences of his students as their eyes and minds open to seeing the world in an entirely new way. Living the Palio shares an amusing and instructional romp through Siena, Italy, as university faculty members and their students gain self-confidence, patience, and most importantly, respect for a different way of life.

Wildly enjoying the success of his first production, playwright David Musante sees his reckless life in the fast lane come crashing to the ground following a bizarre bust-up on New Year’s Eve in New York City. Hoping somehow to put his life and career back together, David flees the bright lights of Manhattan on an impulsive trip to Europe. Unfortunately, his irresponsible ways continue and after leaving a trail of misbehavior from London to Lazio, he ends up virtually penniless in Rome. Desperate for money, an extreme lapse in judgment suddenly finds David as the prime suspect for the murder of one of Italy’s most prominent social figures. Set against a marvelous European backdrop, this astonishing debut shows us how a person’s life can be flipped upside down almost instantaneously. The Palio is a riveting journey into the world of mystery, circumstance and suspense, all topped off with a truly shocking conclusion bound to leave the reader stunned.

To rule their vast new American territories, the Spanish monarchs appointed viceroys in an attempt to reproduce the monarchical system of government prevailing at the time in Europe. But despite the political significance of the figure of the viceroy, little is known about the mechanisms of viceregal power and its relation to ideas of kingship. Examining this figure, The King's Living Image challenges long-held perspectives on the political nature of Spanish colonialism, recovering, at the same time, the complexity of the political discourses and practices of Spanish rule. It does so by studying the viceregal political culture that developed in New Spain in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and the mechanisms, both formal and informal, of viceregal rule. In so doing, The King's Living Image questions the very existence of a "colonial state" and contends that imperial power was constituted in ritual ceremonies. It also emphasizes the viceroys' significance in carrying out the civilizing mission of the Spanish monarchy with regard to the indigenous population. The King's Living Image will redefine the ways in which scholars have traditionally looked at the viceregal administration in colonial Mexico.

Once in a great while the people of Siena, Italy organize a special horse race beyond the normal Palio events of July and August. Known as a Straordinario, or Extraordinary Palio, the city's seventeen timeless contrade (neighborhoods) reserve such events to honor only the most significant occasions, not the least being the Apollo 11 lunar landing and the turn of the millennium. Eighteen years would pass before the next Straordinario featured herein, which arguably pulled the community quite outside its comfort zone. Unbridled Spirit invites readers to dive into the locally contentious effort in October, 2018 to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the end of World War I. Upon Siena's whirlwind decision to hold the event, Thomas Paradis visited off-season to explore the history and meanings of the war and to experience a rare October Palio that came close to not happening at all. Whether you are a newcomer or more familiar with Siena's Palio, Unbridled Spirit offers intriguing local stories and perspectives that help us appreciate what the Palio means to Siena, and how its people rallied to encourage a unique centenary reflection on La Grande Guerra--the Great War. Includes illustrations, glossary, bibliography, and notes.

Intended for Western Civilization surveys or courses on Early or Modern Europe, they incorporate the most significant historical scholarship of the past fifty years. Conventional political history is presented in three forms: in the narrative wherever appropriate, in boxed inserts, and in the chronologies which open each chapter. Both authors frequently relate past history to present events and problems. The second volume contains extensive coverage of the United States. Both volumes contain maps, photos, and annotated bibliographies broken out in historical time periods and arranged topically within the periods.
