“Wife Dies as She Watches,” announced a Daily Express headline after the broadcast of Nineteen Eighty-Four, a BBC adaptation of George Orwell’s novel. The article seems to have attributed the sudden collapse and death of a 42-year-old Herne Bay Woman to the production’s shocking content. That was the most dramatic of the many accusations leveled against the BBC of inflicting distress on the viewing public with Orwell’s bleak and harrowing vision of a totalitarian future. Yet that same pu...

“Game of Thrones” in real life: How kinship changed war in early modern Europe

A new paper finds that royal marriages were able to reduce wars in proportion to how closely they bound dynasties together. The most peaceful century in the history of Early Modern Europe was the most intermarried. The exact mechanism causing this is not fully determined, though the authors suggest a large part of it was easing diplomacy. European monarchs tend to be related to each other. It was seen as advantageous at the time to marry off children to those of royal families in other countrie...
