Cryptohistories is a collection of essays which provides a meeting ground for historians and cultural scholars analysing discussions of cryptic discourses in history and in historical narratives with roots in the mysterious. The focus here is on history as a subjective narrative, as a conscious construct and as manipulation. Equally important for all the contributors brought together in this book is the mechanics of the rise, popularity and apparent necessity of such narrative strategies. The essays address a variety of issues revolving around the study of cryptic aspects of discourses, ranging from theoretical approaches to secretive narratives of history, cultural encoding and decoding of cryptohistories, microhistories focusing on historical mysteries, and mythicised pasts and processes of mythicization of the past, as well as histories and theories of chance and manipulation. Among its specific subjects Crytpohistories features discussions on the reasons why certain quasi-historical narratives do not reach the status of history; on conspiracy theories analysed from the perspective of contemporary video-games; on the paradoxes of truth and falsehood in history; on parasitology as a cryptohistorical discourse; on the codes of Victorian floriography; on cases of cross-dressing and sartorial camouflage; on the Vietnam War MIAs; on manipulations lying at the core of contemporary Bulgarian identity; on the search for a racial utopia in the American South; and on the fiction of Beryl Bainbridge as a form of cryptohistorical literature.

A Companion to Livy is a collection of essays representing the most up-to-date international scholarship on the life and works of the Roman historian Livy. Featuring contributions by some of the world’s top contemporary Livian scholars, essays shed important new light on myriad aspects of Livy while exploring the complexity and originality of his monumental study of Roman history and the people of Rome. Collectively, essays offer powerful evidence to support the elevation of Livy’s Ab Urbe Condita from a history book to a literary masterpiece centred on a particular moment in time and space—the end of Rome’s civil wars and the establishment of the principate under Augustus—that expresses a unique philosophical approach to history. A ground-breaking new interpretation of Livy’s historical philosophy, one based on a cyclical conception of the life of cities, is also presented for the first time in this collection. Innovative and thought-provoking, A Companion to Livy offers illuminating insights into one of the greatest Roman historians while setting a new standard in contemporary Livian scholarship.
