Jonathan Forrest, Andrew Hughes-Hallett Keep Calm and Carry On - A handbook to choose your emotions and change your attitude

The original Keep Calm and Carry On poster was created by the British government in 1939 as part of a series of inspirational posters designed to help the people of Britain stay positive during a time of crisis. Millions of copies of this poster were printed but never displayed and the poster and its message were forgotten until a copy was discovered in a box of books bought at auction by a bookseller in 2000 who subsequently displayed the poster in his shop. Following coverage in a national newspaper, copies of the poster were sold and its message replicated on to other goods. Whilst many people worldwide have been inspired by the message of Keep Calm and Carry On, there has never been any guidance on HOW to Keep Calm and Carry On - until now...

King David Russian Revolutionary Posters

Russian Revolutionary Posters tells the story of the development of the Soviet poster, from the revolutionary period through to the death of Stalin, revealing the way in which tumultuous events within the Soviet Union were matched by equally dramatic shifts in graphic art and design. Written and designed by David King, one of the world's foremost experts on Soviet art and himself an internationally acclaimed graphic designer, the publication features posters drawn from his unparalleled collection, well known to visitors to Tate Modern in London. The book is arranged chronologically. Captions accompany each poster, explaining the historical and artistic context in which it was produced. Constructivist posters, socialist advertising, film posters of the 1920s, classic photomontage, the heroic posters of the Great Patriotic War, biting political satire and the cult of personality of the Stalin years are all here. The great names of Soviet poster design, including Alexander Rodchenko, El Lissitsky, Gustav Klutsis, Dimitri Moor, Viktor Demi and Nina Vatolina, all feature. However, some of the most arresting posters reproduced were created anonymously or by scarcely known artists whose work will be a revelation to many. King takes us behind the scenes, explaining the process involved in the commissioning of the posters and the key figures who coordinated poster campaigns, providing personal histories of the art directors and creative directors whose vision played such a vital role in soviet poster design. With an insightful introduction and over 165 images, some of which have never been seen before, this beautifully produced book will be the definitive survey of the subject for many years to come.

Christian David, Baker David, Grinin Leonid E. Teaching and Researching Big History: Exploring a New Scholarly Field

According to the working definition of the International Big History Association. 'Big History seeks to understand the integrated history of the Cosmos, Earth, Life and Humanity, using the best available empirical evidence and scholarly methods'. In recent years Big History has been developing very fast indeed. Big History courses are taught in the schools and universities of several dozen countries. Hundreds of researchers are involved in studying and teaching Big History. The unique approach of Big History, the interdisciplinary genre of history that deals with the grand narrative of 13.8 billion years, has opened up a vast amount of research agendas. Big History brings together constantly updated information from the scientific disciplines and merges it with the contemplative realms of philosophy and the humanities. It also provides a connection between the past, present, and future. Big History is a colossal and extremely heterogeneous field of research encompassing all the forms of existence and all timescales. Unsurprisingly, Big History may be presented in very different aspects and facets. In this volume the Big History is presented and discussed in three different ways. In its first part. Big History is explored in terms of methodology, theories of knowledge, as well as showcasing the personal approach of scholars to Big History. The second section comprises such articles that could clarify Big History's main trends and laws. The third part of this book explores the nature of teaching Big History as well as profiling a number of educational methods. This volume will be useful both for those who study interdisciplinary macroproblems and for specialists working in focused directions, as well as for those who are interested in evolutionary issues of Astrophysics, Geology, Biology, History, Anthropology, Linguistics and other areas of study.

Work in a Modern Society. The German Historical Experience in Comparative Perspective

Whereas the history of workers and labor movements has been widely researched, the history of work has been rather neglected by comparison. This volume offers original contributions that deal with cultural, social and theoretical aspects of the history of work in modern Europe, including the relations between gender and work, working and soldiering, work and trust, constructions and practices. The volume focuses on Germany but also places the case studies in a broader European context. It thus offers an insight into social and cultural history as practiced by German-speaking scholars today but also introduces the reader to ongoing research in this field.Jürgen Kocka taught Social History at the University of Bielefeld for many years, after which he was appointed Professor of History of the Industrial World at the Free University of Berlin and Research Professor at Berlin Social Science Research Centre (WZB). He has published widely in the field of Modern History, particularly Social and Economic History of Europe, 18th-20th centuries. His publications in the English language include Facing Total War.

Freedom by a Thread. The History of Quilombos in Brazil

Freedom by a Thread: The History of Quilombos in Brazil brings together some of the best scholars in the world working on the history of quilombos (maroon societies) in Brazil from a variety of perspectives and approaches. Over 40 percent of the total volume of captive Africans arrived in Brazil during a 400-year period of legal and contraband transatlantic slaving. If slavery penetrated every aspect of Brazilian life, so did resistance—and co-existence with it—in the form of small to large-scale quilombos. Palmares and the other quilombos built an exciting history of freedom. Yet, it is a history filled with traps and surprises, advances and setbacks, conflict and commitments, while advancing their immediate interests and more ambitious projects of liberty. These events and many others are part of the history told in this book.

Daniel Hardie Jazz Historiography. The Story of Jazz History Writing

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?

R. G. Collingwood The Idea of History .1946 Edition.

Книга "The Idea of History [1946 Edition]".2014 Reprint of 1946 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. R. C. Collingwood (1889-1943) was an English philosopher and historian. Collingwood is most famous for his book "The Idea of History." The book came to be a major inspiration for philosophy of history in the English-speaking world. It is extensively cited. According to Collingwood, the science which is dedicated to the study of mind is history. Collingwood's philosophy of mind and action is thus to be found in his philosophy of history, primarily in "The Idea of History" (1946). The claim that history is the study of mind is prima facie counter-intuitive because many of us tend to think of history as a descriptive science of the past rather than as a normative science of thought. Collingwood's claim that history is the study of mind is in line with the distinction between the Naturwissenschaften and Geisteswissenschaften that is found in continental philosophy of social science.

M. J. Rymsza-Pawlowska History Comes Alive. Public History and Popular Culture in the 1970s

During the 1976 Bicentennial celebration, millions of Americans engaged with the past in brand-new ways. They became absorbed by historical miniseries like Roots, visited museums with new exhibits that immersed them in the past, propelled works of historical fiction onto the bestseller list, and participated in living history events across the nation. While many of these activities were sparked by the Bicentennial, M. J. Rymsza-Pawlowska shows that, in fact, they were symptomatic of a fundamental shift in Americans' relationship to history during the 1960s and 1970s. For the majority of the twentieth century, Americans thought of the past as foundational to, but separate from, the present, and they learned and thought about history in informational terms. But Rymsza-Pawlowska argues that the popular culture of the 1970s reflected an emerging desire to engage and enact the past on a more emotional level: to consider the feelings and motivations of historic individuals and, most importantly, to use this in reevaluating both the past and the present. This thought-provoking book charts the era's shifting feeling for history, and explores how it serves as a foundation for the experience and practice of history making today.

A volume in International Review of History EducationSeries Editors Peter Lee, Rosalyn Ashby, Stuart FosterDebates about the identity of school history and about the nature and purpose of the learning that does,can and should take place in history classrooms continue in many countries around the world. At issue, inmany of these debates, beyond the concerns about history and national identity, are often unaddressed questionsabout the role and inter-relationship of historical knowledge and historical understanding in historicallearning.Research on historical thinking is on-going and a complex tradition of enquiry has developed acrossnational borders in the last 30 years, focusing, in particular on developing students understanding of historicalmeta-concepts such as 'evidence' and 'causation'. There has been comparatively little focus, however, on thehistorical content that students study, on how they study it and on how mastery of historical content contributes to students overall picture of a historicalpast.This volume gathers together recent research and theorising from around the world on key issues central to historical learning and instruction.What sense do students make of the history that they are taught? Are students able to organise historical knowledge in order to form large scale representationsof the past and what difficulties can children face in doing so?

Michael Nelson The French Riviera. A History

The French Riviera: A History is a fascinating look back over the Riviera’s rich history. Perfect to dip into, or follow the whole historical journey in one sitting, it will make the perfect addition to any history buff’s bookcase.Michael Nelson shows the surprisingly cosmopolitan nature of the area in the early middle ages, such as the story of the finishing school run by Frankish kings in the 7th century where Siagrius, the ruler of the region, had studied and where the son of King Edwin of Northumbria in England was also sent. The Riviera was part of Provence in France for much of its history and was often a microcosm of France itself, with many dynastic struggles and horrific blood-letting. Maps and plates illustrate The French Riviera: A History, and it is also full of fascinating anecdotes. Examples include the loan of a guillotine by Nice to Grasse in the French Revolution (Nice had no victims and Grasse had thirty) and the occasion when Jean Moulin, the leader of the French Resistance in World War II, invited the Germans to the opening of an art gallery in Nice which he was using as a front. In the nineteenth and twentieth century the British and Americans led tourism, and the Riviera was described by Somerset Maugham as ‘a sunny place for shady people’.

The Limits of History The Limits of History Новинка

The Limits of History

History casts a spell on our minds more powerful than science or religion. It does t root us in the past at all, but instead flatters us with the belief in our ability to recreate the world in our image. It is a form of self-assertion that brooks opposition or dissent and shelters us from the experience of time. So argues Constantin Fasolt in The Limits of History, an ambitious and path-breaking study that conquers history's power by carrying the fight into the center of its domain. Fasolt considers the work of Hermann Conring (1606-81) and Bartolus of Sassoferrato (1313/1457), two antipodes in early modern battles over the principles of European thought and action that ended with the triumph of historical consciousness. Proceeding according to the rules of rmal historical analysis-gathering evidence, putting it in context, and analyzing its meaning - Fasolt uncovers limits that kind of history can cross. He concludes that history is a ritual designed to maintain the modern faith in the automy of states and individuals. God wants it - the old crusaders would have said. The truth, Fasolt insists, only begins where that illusion ends. With its probing look at the ideological underpinnings of historical practice, The Limits of History demonstrates that history presupposes highly political assumptions about free will, responsibility, and the relationship between the past and the present.Издательство: The University of Chicago Press

Fritz Fischer The Memory Hole. The U.S. History Curriculum Under Siege

The U.S. history curriculum is under attack. Politicians, political analysts, andideologues seek to wipe clean the slate of the American past and replace it withone of their own invention. The basis for this new narrative comes frompolitical beliefs of the present, rather than any systematic examination of thepast. These anti-historians campaign to insert their version of American historyinto the nation's classrooms, hoping to begin a process that will forevertransform our understanding of America's past.The Memory Hole examines five central topics in the US history curriculum,showing how anti-historians of both the left and right seek to distort these topicsand insert a refashioned story in America's classrooms. Ignoring facts, refashioning other facts and pretendingthat there are no rules in the telling of history, these re-interpreters of the past place the minds of America'syoung people in danger. The beleaguered hero of this book is the discipline of History, and The Memory Holeshows how the history curriculum should adhere to history's habits of mind that require complex, sophisticatedand subtle thinking about the past. History and social studies teachers, students of history and all those who careabout the deep and enduring value of history will value this book and its conclusions.

Sigrid Hackenberg y. Almansa Total History, Anti-History, and the Face That Is Other

Total History, Anti-History, and the Face that is Other motions towards a metaphysics of the body that is identically groundless-ground, wherein the delineation of the body, inpropinquity, contradiction, and separation-as the body of a point of departure-assumes the possibility of a duplicity of existences and time(s) that are at once itself (the Same) and its interruption (the Other and/or Infinity).In its provocative reading of Hegel's philosophy of history and Levinas' "face to face" encounter, Hackenberg y Almansa's Total History, Anti-History, and the Face that is Other explores vital questions of history and ethics-offering us a possibility for a metaphysics of the body in the plural.

According to the working definition of the International Big History Association. 'Big History seeks to understand the integrated history of the Cosmos, Earth, Life and Humanity, using the best available empirical evidence and scholarly methods'. In recent years Big History has been developing very fast indeed. Big History courses are taught in the schools and universities of several dozen countries. Hundreds of researchers are involved in studying and teaching Big History. The unique approach of Big History, the interdisciplinary genre of history that deals with the grand narrative of 13.8 billion years, has opened up a vast amount of research agendas. Big History brings together constantly updated information from the scientific disciplines and merges it with the contemplative realms of philosophy and the humanities. It also provides a connection between the past, present, and future. Big History is a colossal and extremely heterogeneous field of research encompassing all the forms of existence and all timescales. Unsurprisingly, Big History may be presented in very different aspects and facets. In this volume the Big History is presented and discussed in three different ways. In its first part. Big History is explored in terms of methodology, theories of knowledge, as well as showcasing the personal approach of scholars to Big History. The second section comprises such articles that could clarify Big History's main trends and laws. The third part of this book explores the nature of teaching Big History as well as profiling a number of educational methods. This volume will be useful both for those who study interdisciplinary macroproblems and for specialists working in focused directions, as well as for those who are interested in evolutionary issues of Astrophysics, Geology, Biology, History, Anthropology, Linguistics and other areas of study.
