Monographs

‘The English Republican Exiles in Europe’ (in preparation).

*

Henry Neville and English Republican Culture in the Seventeenth Century: Dreaming of Another Game (Manchester: Manchester University Press, 2009).

*

Reviews:

‘… this is a highly skilled and very effective doctoral thesis, in an original area of scholarship, which will be of interest to scholars working in the field of Harringtonian political thought and the genesis of English republicanism.’

John Callow, History, 95 (2010), pp. 380-2.

*
‘This is an important, well-researched, and lucidly written work that not only adds greatly to our knowledge of Neville but also contributes significantly to ongoing debates about republicanism, civic humanism, patriarchalism and anti-patriarchalism, and neo-Harringtonian thinking, among much else.’

Johann Sommerville, Journal of British Studies, 50 (2011), pp. 484-5.

*

‘Based on thorough research and a close analysis of all Neville’s writings (and others attributed to him), this book at once becomes the standard guide and essential point of reference.’

Bernard Capp, English Historical Review, 521 (2011), pp. 942-3.

Edited VolumesPatriarchal Moments

Cesare Cuttica/Gaby Mahlberg (eds), Patriarchal Moments (Bloomsbury Academic, 2016).

Reviews:

‘The really good thing about these books (i.e. Patriarchal Moments and Feminist Moments) is that I have been arguing with them ever since I read them, and anything that creates that much intellectual commotion provides a good start for an analytical conversation.’

Dirk Wiemann/Gaby Mahlberg (eds), Perspectives on English Revolutionary Republicanism (Farnham: Ashgate, 2014).

*

Reviews:

‘This volume offers refinements rather than breakthroughs. But the refinements are significant: the level of scholarship is generally high and at times outstanding, as attested by the volume’s comprehensive bibliography.’

Feisal G. Mohamed, Renaissance Quarterly, 68:3 (2015), pp. 1085-1087.

*

‘Readers of this stimulating collection will find plenty of food for thought, especially in its welcome exploration of religion’s place in republican thinking.’

Bernard Capp, English Historical Review, 131: 549 (2016), pp. 452-4.

*

Onnekink-The Anglo-DutchGaby Mahlberg/ Dirk Wiemann (eds) European Contexts for English Republicanism (Farnham: Ashgate, 2013).

Reviews:

‘Gaby Mahlberg and Dirk Wiemann’s excellent collection of essays, European Contexts for English Republicanism, is a much-needed, groundbreaking work. … the very issue of Continental translations and under-studied circulation of English language texts and people is an issue that historians of the Republic of Letters still need to come to grips with. European Contexts for English Republicanism is paving the way for future work in this area.’

Vittoria Feola, Sixteenth Century Journal, XLV/4 (2014), pp. 1024-25.

*

‘Collectively, the essays in this volume highlight the complexity in untangling the threads of English republicanism as it wove its way through two centuries of continental thought, and in doing so very clearly demonstrate the benefits of a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach.’

Victoria Anker, The Seventeenth Century (2014). 

*

‘Against a historiography which has stressed that any exchange of republican ideas was confined to England and its colonies in North America, shaping the American Constitution, the contributors to this collection convincincly demonstrate the interchange of political ideas between England and the Continent during the 17th and 18th centuries.’

Jutta Schwarzkopf, Journal for the Study of British Cultures, vol. 20, no. 2 (2013), pp. 191-5.

*

‘In der Tat liefert der Sammelband neue Impulse, Ansätze und Knotenpunkte, von denen aus weiterführende Untersuchungen der „European Contexts for English Republicanism“ vorgenommen werden können. Der fruchtbare Mehrwert des Werkes besteht gerade darin, dieses vor allem interdisziplinäre Forschungspotential dargelegt und exemplarisch angestoßen zu haben.’

Nina Schweisthal, in: H-Soz-u-Kult, 13.05.2014, <http://hsozkult.geschichte.hu-berlin.de/rezensionen/2014-2-106>.

*

‘… for now the collection of thought-provoking essays contained herein make European Contexts for English Republicanism essential reading for students of English republicanism and of early-modern political thought more broadly.’

Matthew Johnson, in: History of European Ideas (2014).

*

‘Neben den enthaltenen, allerdings teils speziellen Ergebnissen, liegt die Leistung des Bandes darin, konkrete Perspektiven für die weitere Erforschung der europäischen Verflechtungen und Wirkung republikanischer Denker zu eröffnen. Besonders die Ansatzpunkte, die die Vorstellung des Wansleben-Manuskripts liefert, haben das Potential, die ideengeschichtliche Landkarte Europas seit dem späten 17. Jahrhundert merklich zu modifizieren.’

Sebastian Meurer, in: Francia-Recensio (2014).
