This is an offprint of two chapters of a more complete monograph published by the author under the title of ""How America's First Settlers Invented Chattel Slavery."" That book is still available from the publisher, but the two chapters reproduced here are because they have particular relevance to contemporary subjects and discussions, particularly surrounding the recent canonization of Father Junipero Serra. The subject of the reprinted chapters is the dehumanization of Native Americans and Africans with Language, Laws, Guns, and Religion, especially during the colonization of early settlers in the United States. The two chapters reproduced in this offprint are from a larger work published in the Series ""Berkeley Insights in Linguistics and Semiotics"" and are reproduced here, by the author, with the kind permission of Peter Lang Publishers, Inc., New York.

Li Anshan A History of Overseas Chinese in Africa to 1911

1989 руб.
The first English translation of part one of Li Anshan's seminal work Feizhou Huaqiao Huaren Shi, A History of Overseas Chinese in Africa to 1911 explores early Chinese knowledge of and contacts with Africa through Chinese literature on Africa and current archeological evidence, suggesting Sino-African trade existed as early as the seventh century. Li provides readers with an uncomplicated history of Chinese in Africa, examining their story from multiple perspectives, using approaches and sources found in economic history, social history, international relations, and migration in world history. While Li maintains the first group of Chinese were prisoners brought by the Dutch from Southeast Asia in the seventeenth century, the vast majority of early Chinese in Africa were "free immigrants" and contract labors that established key communities and organizations. It is these early Chinese which laid foundations for and provide important context in interpreting the recent flow of Chinese migrants and capital into various parts of Africa. The book should be of value to African and world historians, sociologists, anthropologists, and students of African and Asian studies.

This book combines theater and life in an attempt to consider how people inter- acted in face-to-face situations in early-modern England, and to examine the wider implications of those relationships for social organization. The research behind the text is interdisciplinary: it draws on mid-Tudor comedies, the City comedies, and early-Stuart plays, illustrating how the dramatic realism of those playwrights interrelates to the real social world."The idea of this book to recreate the social structure from the way persons addressed one another and the variety of social descriptors employed is long overdue." - Richard Smith, FBA Professor of Historical Demography, Cambridge University."It's a novel study of an intrinsically interesting subject, drawn from sources never before systematically explored by social historians. It will prove a useful contribution to early modern English social & cultural history, opening another window on the lives, social networks, and language of ordinary folk."- Margo Todd, Walter H. Annenberg Professor of History, University of Pennsylvania."David Postles was able to successfully combine research across the disciplinary boundaries between social history and literary and sociological analysis.... The result is a subtle and multivalent study of human conduct, social position, and the ways in which early-modern subjects sought to fashioning their own identities-and were in turn fashioned by others- through the language of soc...

Daniel Hardie Jazz Historiography. The Story of Jazz History Writing

3014 руб.
Jazz has been around for over a hundred years but how much do we know about its history, and how much of what think we know is true? Beginning in the so called Jazz Age of the 1920's jazz history was recounted and interpreted by admiring authors and record collectors both in the United States and elsewhere. However, since the early 1990's some historians have come to doubt the validity of the conventional narrative of the story of jazz and some of its most hallowed traditions. In Jazz Historiography: The Story of Jazz History Writing Daniel Hardie uncovers the course of jazz history writing from early Jazz Age American and French publications to Academic texts in the 2000's, and seeks answers to questions about the accuracy of those accounts and the influence they have had on our understanding of jazz history - even the impact they might have had on the course of jazz history itself. How much for example did the work of jazz historians influence the course of the New Orleans Revival? Was the appearance of bebop in the 1940's a revolutionary response to oppression experienced by Afro American musicians in a commercialized popular music industry, or was it an attempt to mirror the development of classical music of the time? How has the development of University jazz studies influenced the writing of jazz history?

Early Earth Systems provides a complete history of the Earth from its beginnings to the end of the Archaean. This journey through the Earth's early history begins with the Earth's origin, then examines the evolution of the mantle, the origin of the continental crust, the origin and evolution of the Earth's atmosphere and oceans, and ends with the origin of life. Looks at the evidence for the Earth's very early differentiation into core, mantle, crust, atmosphere and oceans and how this differentiation saw extreme interactions within the Earth system. Discusses Archaean Earth processes within the framework of the Earth System Science paradigm, providing a qualitative assessment of the principal reservoirs and fluxes in the early Earth. “The book would be perfect for a graduate-level or upper level undergraduate course on the early Earth. It will also serve as a great starting point for researchers in solid-Earth geochemistry who want to know more about the Earth’s early atmosphere and biosphere, and vice versa for low temperature geochemists who want to get a modern overview of the Earth’s interior.” Geological Magazine, 2008

The accuracy of recalled childhood memories in adulthood is the subject of extensive research and debate, and controversies exist surrounding the authenticity of recovered memories. This recollection of episodes from a childhood spent in 1950s England is enhanced by the authorÕs ADHD syndrome; it supplies a rare clarity to counteract the errors commonly found with authentic memories, when the adult has to infer missing details. The vignettes of an early life that comprise this book represent a world of freedom and adventure now sadly lost to history, but they paint a picture that is as vivid today as when they were first experienced.

History Wars and the Classroom. Global Perspectives

6339 руб.
ABOUT THE BOOKThe book is entitled History Wars and the Classroom: Global Perspectives and examines how ten separate countries have experienced debates and disputes over the contested nature of the subject, for example the ‘Black Armband’ and ‘Whitewash’ factions in Australia who adopt opposingly celebratory or denigratory views of Australian history, especially when evaluating episodes of poor racial relations. There are also tensions between traditional/patriotic views of history teaching and reformed or ‘new’ history. There are issues of political control of the curriculum and parallel issues of who writes it (very topical in England at the moment over two expat ‘big picture’ historians who work at Harvard and Columbia (Niall Ferguson and Simon Schama)).ENDORSEMENTS:“An important collection for anyone seeking to understand the incendiary nature of the history curriculum across the globe.” Sam Wineburg, Margaret Jacks Professor of Education and History, Stanford University, USA.“A powerfully and impressively wide-ranging collection of essays, which vividly remind usthat the debates on the teaching of history are global rather than merely national”.Sir David Cannadine, Dodge Professor of History, Princeton University, USA.

Luke wrote this historical book of the Acts of the Apostles. In it, he covered the first thirty years of the early Christian church - from Jesus Christ's ascension to heaven until Paul's arrival and ministry in Rome. This history includes coverage of the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was first given to believers, through the ministries and travels of Peter, Stephen, Philip, Paul, Barnabas, and Silas. Details of early church practices are explained throughout the Acts. Apart from Luke's history of the early church and the ministries of the apostles, we would have missed the stories of the early development and spread of the church throughout the Eastern Mediterranean region. This includes the ministry of Peter in and around Judaea, and the ministry of Paul and companions throughout the lands of the present day Middle East, Turkey, Macedonia, Greece, Cyprus, Crete, Malta, and Italy.

Duncan Campbell History of Prince Edward Island

2827 руб.
This island was one of Cabot’s early discoveries in North America, and was called by him St. John, a name it carried through much of its history. However, it was claimed by France as part of the discoveries made by Verazani in 1523, and it remained under French control for much of its early history. In 1713, when Acadia and Newfoundland were ceded to England, the French inhabitants were given liberty to leave, and many went to St. John. Again, when the Acadians were driven from Nova Scotia in 1755, many removed to St. John. In 1763, St. John was ceded to the British, who then developed some grand plans for the settlement of the island by their own people. Subsequently it was settled by Loyalists fleeing from the American colonies, and by many Scotch highlanders. The latter are readily apparent from the names of the heads of households in the 1798 census of the island which is included as an appendix to this history. The author also wrote a history of Nova Scotia. A new full-name index has been added.

It is a treatise that presents the history and culture in broad strokes covering the early history of the Anishnaabek (Ojibwa) of the Saugeen (Bruce) Peninsula as well as their relationship with the Crown during the colonial period of Upper Canada. The first section of the book highlights the historical periods of the settling of the peninsula by the Ojibwa through the War of 1812. This is followed by the treaty-making era and relationships with missionaries. The historical section finishes with the paternalism of the early days of the Indian Act through modern times.The second section of the book gives a glimpse into the culture of the Anishnaabek. Topics such as Ojibwa characteristics, language, religion, and trade. Band designations, wampum and dodems are explained as well as gatherings, games and stories. Lifestyle is also covered illustrating the cyclical movements throughout the territory following the seasons from the main villages to hunting camps in winter, to sugar making in the early spring, to the fishing camps in late spring.

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject History Europe - Other Countries - Middle Ages, Early Modern Age, grade: English Grade:58% von 70%, University of Nottingham (School of History), course: Hauptseminar: Gender and Society in Early Modern Europe, language: English, abstract: 'Witch- hunting is seen as something pathological, a disease infecting like a plague the body of the communities in witch it raged.'1 With these words the historian Bob Scribner described witchcraft and witch-hunts. They are defined as something negative and pathological and it is obviously that witchcraft could easily emerged because of the traditional beliefs rooted in the early modern society of Germany. Witchcraft and witchhunts emerged in this period and made the population susceptible to the carrying out of denunciation and elimination of innocent people. The population had been easily influenced by the authorities like magistrates and their fellow citizens.In the following discussion/passage, witchcraft and witch-hunts concerning the early modern Europe will be less prominent rather than the study about witchcraft and witchhunts in early modern Germany. In particular the main focus will stress on the south of Germany because it was the centre of witchcraft and witch-hunts. In addition to that some examples will be mentioned to show special witchcraft and witch- hunt cases. First it will be examined how the term 'witch' is defined shown in a historical, linguistic and an ...

Ruskin Bond The Lamp Is Lit

Autobiographical sketches and stories from India's best-loved writer in English. For over four decades now, by way of innumerable short stories, essays, poems and novels, Ruskin Bond has championed simplicity and quietude in life and in art. This collection of essays and episodes from his journals is, in his own words, "a celebration of my survival as a freelance'. The author's early forays into the literary magazines of the 1950s and '60s are described in the first part of the book, along with some examples of his work at the time. The sections that follow contain extracts from an unpublished travel journal he kept during the '60s, episodes from the highways on which he was a frequent traveller, and vignettes of life in Mussoorie, past and present. With understated humour and compassion, Ruskin Bond records the charming eccentricities of friends and acquaintances (a former princess cheerfully obsessed with death and disaster); the silent miracles of nature ("New moon in a purple sky'); life's little joys (the smell of onions frying) and its fleeting regrets. Nostalgic and heart-warming, full of wisdom and charm, The Lamp is Lit provides a fascinating glimpse into the life of "our very own resident Wordsworth in prose.

Abraham Lincoln raved that this series of historical biographies gave him "just that knowledge of past men and events which I need. I have read them with the greatest interest. To them I am indebted for about all the historical knowledge I have."Considered what we would now call "young adult" literature, this collection, first published between 1848 and 1871, was designed to present a clear, distinct, connected narrative of the lives of the great figures of world history, those people who have been most influential, at least as American author and educator JACOB ABBOTT (1803-1879) saw it from his 19th-century perspective.Wildly popular and republished many times under different collected names, this replica set mimics the 1904 reprint known as the "Makers of History" series. It will delight students of history as well as show the scholar how history telling has changed over the last few centuries.More than 30 other volumes in the series are also available from Cosimo Classics.This volume, dating from 1850, covers Cyrus the Great (d. 530BC), founder of the Persian Empire, from his early years and ascension to the throne to the Oracles, the conquests of Lydia and Babylon, the restoration of the Jews, and more.
