Though originally intended as a gesta of Alfonso, it is primarily an original account of the reign of his father, Ferdinand I — For its earlier history it relies on the works of Isidore of Seville , Julian of Toledo , and the Vitas sanctorum patrum Emeritensium for the Visigothic period, the Chronicle of Alfonso III for the ninth century, the work of Sampiro for the tenth and early eleventh centuries, and the Chronicon of Pelayo of Oviedo for the eleventh century. The Historia along with Pelayo's Chronicon provide the only surviving versions of Sampiro's otherwise lost history. The date of composition can be approximately fixed by internal evidence. In chapter 7 the author notes that "the whole length of [Alfonso VI's] fragile life has been run", indicating that he was writing after Alfonso's death in Since Rainerius reigned as Paschal II from to January and there is no mention of his death, modern scholars have largely accepted that he was still alive at the time of composition.

Historia Silense HS is the misleading name given to a composite historical miscellany whose main claim upon the attention of historians has been that it includes principal narrative account of the Leonese monarchy between and The work owes the title by which it is conventionally known to a supposed origin at the Castilian monastery of Silos. This book provides an account of the University of Manchester's struggle to meet the government's demands for the rapid expansion of higher education in the s and the s.
The book tells the story, not just from the point of view of administrators and academics, but also from those of students and support staff such as secretaries, technicians and engineers. It not only uses official records, but also student newspapers, political pamphlets and reminiscences collected through interviews. This book provides a detailed consideration of the history of racing in British culture and society, and explores the cultural world of racing during the interwar years.
The book shows how racing gave pleasure even to the supposedly respectable middle classes and gave some working-class groups hope and consolation during economically difficult times. Regular attendance and increased spending on betting were found across class and generation, and women too were keen participants.
Enjoyed by the royal family and controlled by the Jockey Club and National Hunt Committee, racing's visible emphasis on rank and status helped defend hierarchy and gentlemanly amateurism, and provided support for more conservative British attitudes. The mass media provided a cumulative cultural validation of racing, helping define national and regional identity, and encouraging the affluent consumption of sporting experience and a frank enjoyment of betting.
The broader cultural approach of the first half of the book is followed by an exploration if the internal culture of racing itself. Lawyers had been producing reports of trials and appellate proceedings in order to understand the law and practices of the Westminster courts since the Middle Ages, and printed reports had appeared in the late fifteenth century. This book considers trials in the regular English criminal courts in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
It also considers the contribution of criminal lawyers in developing the modern rules of evidence. The book explores the influence of scientific and pseudoscientific knowledge on Victorian insanity trials and trials for homosexual offences, respectively. The British Trials Collection contains the only readily accessible and near-verbatim accounts of civil trials from the s, s, and s, decades crucial to understanding how the rules of evidence developed.
The book presents a comparative critique of war crimes trials before the International Military Tribunals at Nuremberg and Tokyo and the International Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and for Rwanda. The first spy trial by court martial after the legal change in was that of Robert Rosenthal, who was German.
The book also considers the principal features of the first war crimes trial of the twenty-first century in terms of personnel and procedures, the alleged crimes, and issues of legality and legitimacy. It also speculates on the narratives or non-narratives of the trial and how these may impact on the professed aims and objectives of the litigation.
