William of Malmesbury's Chronicle of the Kings of England Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from William of Malmesbury's Chronicle of the Kings of England: From the Earliest Period to the Reign of King Stephen "William of Malmesburt," according to archbishop Usher, "is the chief of our historians;" Leland records him "as an elegant, learned, and faithful historian;" and Sir Henry Saville is of opinion, that he is the only man of his time who has discharged his trust as an historian. His History of the Kings of England was translated into English by the Rev. John Sharpe, and published in quarto, in 1815. Though the language of Mr. Sharpe's work is by no means so smooth as the dialect of the present day would require, yet the care with which he examined MSS., and endeavoured to give the exact sense of his author, seemed so important a recommendation, that the editor of the present volume has gladly availed himself of it as a ground-work for his own labours. The result of this plan is, that the public are enabled to purchase without delay and at an insignificant expense, the valuable contemporary historian, who has hitherto been like a sealed book to the public, or only accessible through a bulky volume, the scarcity of which served to exclude it from all but public libraries or the studies of the wealthy. But the translation of Mr. Sharpe has by no means been reprinted verbatim. Within the last ten years a valuable edition of the original text, with copious collations of MSS., has been published by the English Historical Society. This edition has been compared with the translation, and numerous passages retouched and improved. Some charters, also, have been added, and a large number of additional notes appended at the foot of the pages, together with a few other improvements and additions calculated to render this interesting history more acceptable to the reading public.

The book Politics of Erasure. From ?Damnatio Memoriae? to Alluring Void on the one hand deals with the strategies of widely understood erasure in visual arts (i.e. exclusion, annulment and depreciation) in terms of particular works of art, museum narrations or urban spaces; on the other hand, it attempts to look at the ways of writing history because here the required and necessary virtue of synthesis sometimes transforms into an injurious scheme.Thus, oscillation between the general consciousness of the method and its precise use within case studies becomes not only a presentation of significant works of the Polish art of the 20th century showed in the general European context, but also a reflection on the craft of the historian, its limitations and possibilities.The ?politics of erasure? in the title does not link only with the ruthless power struggle hostile to any signs of resistance, it can also be a strategy aiming at widening our perception or negotiating what is visible and real. In this last case it does not reconcile itself to the terror of the visible and becomes a persevering attempt to expand the range of imagination and activate memory and intuition.

French Romantics: Volume 1 BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This collaborative, two-volume work offers a full survey of the French Romantics as a whole, and seeks to reassess their collective achievement and continuing value. The movement they created is considered within the broad terms of intellectual and cultural history as well as of literary criticism. Alongside chapters on the poetry, the novel, the drama and literary theory, there are therefore studies of the religious and political thought, historical writings, art, music and opera that are no less central to a full appreciation of French Romanticism. Volume 1 begins with a discussion of the movement's rise, development and aims, and this is followed by two chapters devoted to different aspects of the Romantics' fundamental intellectual commitment as embodied in their ideas on religion, politics and society. The other two chapters in this volume consider the two central literary genres of poetry and prose fiction.

Armenian Legends and Festivals (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Armenian Legends and Festivals The author of the study which follows responded to the lure of his task for both theoretical and practical reasons. He seemed, because of his intimate personal relationship to Armenian life, to be peculiarly qualified to study and interpret a cross-section of that country's life. It is particularly urgent that we as Americans have authentic studies of Armenia and Armenian social life. Heretofore there has been a striking lack of such materials readily accessible in English. Because of the not inconsiderable immigration which reaches us from Armenia, and because also there has been a call for the United States to act as mandatory for this country under the peace treaty, we should penetrate more deeply into the Armenian heart than we have been able to do so far, if we are to carry through successfully our job either as assimilator or as friendly guardian. Moreover there is incumbent upon the United States in particular the duty of understanding a country like Armenia, since we have been foremost in proclaiming the doctrine of the rights of small nationalities. Those are the practical purposes from the standpoint of social politics which have given rise to and confer full warrant upon this study. Of no less importance, however, is the contribution which Mr. Boettiger's study makes to theoretical sociology. He has sketched out for us the picture of a refractory culture which refuses to amalgamate with or yield to or be permeated by rival cultures. The social history of this sturdy people offers us a very clear-cut example of what really makes a society or a nation. Not mountains, not dynasties, not blood, but common interests, common traditions, common beliefs; in short, mental community. The theoretical joins with the practical service of this study if it can strengthen our understanding that only as our own blood and that of our Armenian friends reach the place where they boil at the same temperature, or are cooled by the same application of reason, can we minister to each other or carry out the new partnership which may lie immediately ahead of us in the reestablishment of peace and reorganization of world comity.

Excerpt from A Memoir, Explanatory of the Chart and Survey of the County of London-Derry, Ireland When Ireland seemed devoted to political parties, withheld neither by true wisdom nor by kind feelings; when all interference seemed full of danger and void of hope; the author formed the design of abstracting his thoughts from public transactions, and of bending them on the studies of inanimate nature. In this pursuit, materials were collected for the natural history of his native county; a part of this collection was placed in the hands of a respected member of the Dublin Society; and this, with other accompanying remarks, too hastily thrown together, was published, in 1808, under the title of a "Statistical Survey of the County of London-Derry." The imperfections of this work did not escape the author; and, in consequence, a design was formed that, on some future occasion, if possible, these defects should be redeemed. In 1809 the worshipful Company of Fishmongers sent over, to visit their estate in the county of London-Derry, three gentlemen of excellent judgment and patriotic views: They were pleased to honour the author with a visit, and to favour him with their confidence. In various conversations, it was suggested that if a Chart of Territory could be combined with a Topographical Map, on an extended scale, it would be a most useful acquisition for the proprietors of the county.

Belief and Culture in the Middle Ages Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Are there angels within spitting distance of men? What did Pope Gregory the Great think of pagans? Were the monks of Battle compulsive forgers? Is temptation always a bad thing? These and many other fascinating questions are explored in this book. Commisssioned in honour of the distinguished medieval historian, Henry Mayr-Harting and reflecting the range and focus of its honorand's interests, the twenty-five essays provide a panoramic and stimulating exploration of the interrelated fields of belief and culture in the middle ages. Sanctity and sacred biography, seduction and temptation, forgery and litigation, patronage and art production, conversion and oppression were all part of the rich fabric of medieval Christian culture that is scrutinized here. Individually the studies shed new light on a series of key issues and questions relating to the cultural, religious, and political history of the sixth-century church, of Anglo-Saxon and Norman England, and of Carolingian, Ottonian, and Investiture Contest Europe; while collectively they illuminate the interaction of Christianity and politics, of secular and sacred, and of belief and culture from late antiquity to the thirteenth century.

Marion Expedition to Davis Strait and Baffin Bay, Vol. 1 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The "Marion" Expedition to Davis Strait and Baffin Bay, Vol. 1: Under Direction of the United States Coast Guard, 1928 Prior to the loss of the Titanic, on April 14, 1912, as the result of a collision with an iceberg in the North Atlantic, no patrol was maintained in the region of the Grand Banks for the purpose of safeguarding lives and property against the.iceberg peril, and no systematic study had been made of physical and oceanographic conditions pertaining to icebergs and their drift in the North Atlantic. While a patrol of the ice zone was maintained during the seasons of 1912 and 1913 to meet an almost universal demand, arising from the Titanic catastrophe, for protection against the iceberg menace, it was not until the season of 1914 that the United States Government undertook the management of the international service of study and observation of ice conditions and of ice patrol, pursuant to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea signed on January 20, 1914.This was a new and important duty, inaugurating the entry of the United States Coast Guard into an international service of iceberg scouting and patrol, and into a field of scientific study and research not previously developed nor sufficiently known. The early history of the International Service of Ice Observation and Ice Patrol represented a pioneering service and purpose not only to maintain an efficient patrol worthy of the high standards and traditions of the United States Coast Guard, but also to accumulate scientific data to afford an intelligent understanding of the forces of nature having an effect on or a relationship to the iceberg menace. With the growing importance of a knowledge of ocean currents, and of the source, characteristics, and drifts of icebergs in the conduct of this international service, ever opportunity was availed of and every effort directed, each ice season, toward assembling data and making studies of oceanographic conditions in the Grand Banks region. The data gathered during the ice seasons were supplemented by observations made during special cruises at other periods of the year in order to study seasonal changes in ocean currents and water temperatures. Each succeeding season brought to light extensive and important data in furtherance of our knowledge of the elements entering into the study of ice conditions, and strengthening and corroborating opinions held as a result of prior scientific investigations. Reports of these observations were published in the annual bulletins of the International Service of Ice Observation and Ice Patrol.

Roman Mosaics Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Roman Mosaics: Or Studies in Rome and Its Neighbourhood So many thousands of volumes have been written about Rome that it is impossible to say anything new regarding it. Every feature of its topography and every incident of its history have been described. Every sentiment appropriate to the subject has been expressed. But Rome can be regarded from countless points of view, and studied for endless objects. Each visitor's mind is a different prism with angles of thought that break up the subject into its own colours. And as is the case in a mosaic, old materials can be brought into new combinations, and a new picture constructed out of them. It is on this ground that I venture to add another book to the bewildering, pile of literature on Rome. But I have another reason to offer. While the great mass of the materials of the book is old and familiar, not a few things are introduced that are comparatively novel. The late Dean Alford made the remark how difficult it is to obtain in Rome those details of interest which can be so easily got in other cities. Guide-books contain a vast amount of information, but there are many points interesting to the antiquarian and the historian which they overlook altogether.

Heart of the Railroad Problem Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Heart of the Railroad Problem: The History of Railway Discrimination in the United States, the Chief Efforts at Control, and the Remedies Proposed, With Hints From Other Countries This work is one of the consequences of a conversation years ago with Dr. C. F. Taylor, of Philadelphia, editor and publisher of The Medical World and of Equity Series. The doctor said that Equity Series should have a book on the railroad question. The writer replied that there was room for a book dealing with the political, industrial, and social effects of different systems of railway ownership and control. A plan was adopted for a book, to be called "The Railways, the Trusts, and the People," which is now on the press of Equity Series. For the preparation of this work the writer travelled through nine countries of Europe and over three-fourths of the United States, studying railways, meeting railroad presidents and managers, ministers of railways, members of railway commissions, governors, senators, and leading men of every class, in the effort to get a thorough understanding of the railway situation. He also made an extensive study of the railroad literature of leading countries, and examined thoroughly the reports and decisions of commissions and courts in railroad cases in the United States. As these studies progressed, the writer became more and more convinced that the heart of the railroad problem lie s in the question of impartial treatment of shippers. The chief complaint against our railroads is not that the rates as a whole are unreasonable, but that favoritism is shown for large shippers or special interests having control of railways or a special pull with the management.
