In The Ruling Passion, Christopher Lane examines the relationship between masculinity, homosexual desire, and empire in British colonialist and imperialist fictions at the turn of the twentieth century. Questioning the popular assumption that Britain's empire functioned with symbolic efficiency on sublimated desire, this book presents a counterhistory of the empire's many layers of conflict and ambivalence. Through attentive readings of sexual and political allegory in the work of Kipling, Forster, James, Beerbohm, Firbank, and others—and deft use of psychoanalytic theory—The Ruling Passion interprets turbulent scenes of masculine identification and pleasure, power and mastery, intimacy and antagonism. By foregrounding the shattering effects of male homosexuality and interracial desire, and by insisting on the centrality of unconscious fantasy and the death drive, The Ruling Passion examines the startling recurrence of colonial failure in narratives of symbolic doubt and ontological crisis. Lane argues compellingly that Britain can progress culturally and politically only when it has relinquished its residual fantasies of global mastery.

Ruling Passion is the only book-length study of tyranny, statesmanship, and civic virtue in three major Platonic dialogues, the Georgias, the Symposium, and the Republic. It is also the first extended interpretation of eros as the key to Plato's understanding of both the depths of human vice and the heights of human aspirations for virtue and happiness. Through his detailed commentary and eloquent insights on the three dialogues, Waller Newell demonstrates how, for Plato, tyranny is a misguided longing for erotic satisfaction that can be corrected by the education of eros toward the proper objects if its pleasure: civic virtue and philosophy. In unfolding these reflections through his analysis, Newell also demonstrates a rich and deep grasp of the complexities of the tyrannical personality and countless new insights into the dramatic dimensions of Plato's dialogues. Written in a clear and engaging style, Ruling Passion will be of interest to philosophers, political theorists, classicists, historians, and anyone generally intrigued by the ironies, mysteries, and longings of human nature and psychology.

The first three YA fantasy romance novels featuring “vampires with bite and girls who bite back. A witty, exhilarating and fresh take on an old tale” (Kelley Armstrong). In the darkness of the vampire realm, the Drake family has hidden for ages. Now, a new generation of young, noble nightwalkers must find their way in the world of immortals, mortals, and vampire hunters as they fight for both survival and the chance of eternal love . . . Hearts at Stake: Solange Drake is coming into her own as the only daughter ever born to an ancient vampire dynasty. And that means a lot of people both dead and undead are going to be watching her. Especially Kieran Black—a vampire hunter out for revenge. But when Solange is abducted by a power-hungry vampire queen, it will take all her friends as well as the daring and dangerous Keiran to save her eternal life . . . Blood Feud: The day Isabeau St. Croix was turned into a vampire, she was buried alive and left for dead by a vicious British lord. Now, over two hundred years later, she has emerged to seek revenge. But she never expected the vampire world to be on the edge of chaos. Nor did she expect to meet the handsome Logan Drake. And when a sinister threat rises to challenge the Drake dynasty, Isabeau and Logan must stand with each other if they are going to survive . . . Out for Blood: Hunter Wild is descended from a long line of elite vampire hunters. But when the hunter academy she attends comes under attack, she must turn to an unlikely ally: the drop-dead gorgeous vampire Quinn Drake. Can she trust her born enemy to help her without using his wiles to ensnare her? Hailed as “a refreshing take on the familiar teenage vampire drama,” the Drake Chronicles is an irresistible saga of love, humor, and adventure that will keep you turning pages deep into the dark of night (Publishers Weekly).

'Thoroughly absorbing.' The New Yorker 'A marvellous account' Sunday Telegraph This vibrant, fascinating account of Britain's most eminent bird illustrator was first published to wonderful reviews over a decade ago. Beautifully repackaged as a classic biography of one of our most extraordinary Victorians, The Bird Man, by acclaimed writer Isabella Tree, will captivate a new audience. John Gould was a genius and a cad. His volume of work eclipsed his American counter part Audubon in accuracy and artistic value. But John Gould's work was the result of sacrifice and alienation. Through the unacknowledged loyalty and handiwork of his wife, and many other artists, in particular one young fellow called Edward Lear, Gould cemented his reputation as the first gentleman of birds. Isabella Tree's lively biography reveals a story of discovery, ambition and betrayal - touching on some of the greatest wonders of the Victorian era, from the arrival of the first giraffe in London to Gould's crucial role in Darwin's theory of natural selection.
