Kingship and Consent in Anglo-Saxon England, 871-978 Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This engaging new study focuses on the role of assemblies in later Anglo-Saxon politics, challenging and nuancing existing models of the late Anglo-Saxon state. Its ten chapters investigate both traditional constitutional aspects of assemblies - who attended these events, where and when they met, and what business they conducted - and the symbolic and representational nature of these gatherings. Levi Roach takes into account important recent work on continental rulership, and argues that assemblies were not a check on kingship in these years, but rather an essential feature of it. In particular, the author highlights the role of symbolic communication at assemblies, arguing that ritual and demonstration were as important in English politics as they were elsewhere in Europe. Far from being exceptional, the methods of rulership employed by English kings look very much like those witnessed elsewhere on the continent, where assemblies and ritual formed an essential part of the political order.

'Only with the greatest of simplifications, for the sake of convenience, can we say Africa. In reality, except as a geographical term, Africa doesn't exist'. Ryszard Kapuscinski has been writing about the people of Africa throughout his career. In a study that avoids the official routes, palaces and big politics, he sets out to create an account of post-colonial Africa seen at once as a whole and as a location that wholly defies generalised explanations. It is both a sustained meditation on the mosaic of peoples and practises we call 'Africa', and an impassioned attempt to come to terms with humanity itself as it struggles to escape from foreign domination, from the intoxications of freedom, from war and from politics as theft. The Beginning: Collision, Ghana 1958 More than anything, one is struck by the light. Light everywhere. Brightness everywhere. Everywhere, the sun. Just yesterday, an autumnal London was drenched in rain. The airplane drenched in rain. A cold, wind, darkness. But here, from the morning

American Bibliography, Vol. 2 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from American Bibliography, Vol. 2: A Chronological Dictionary of All Book Pamphlets and Periodical In the twenty years of literary production in the United States of America, of which this second volume of the American Bibliography is a record, the printing-press has also become established in the Provinces of Virginia and South Carolina, and a literature in the German language has become an integral part of our own. With the spread of printing into the Provinces south of New England the literary record assumes a broader outlook. It becomes freer, more outspoken, discussion of public questions takes a wider sweep, and the purely literary is more cultivated. With the flow of emigration and immigration property rights and boundaries become more jealously guarded, and vulgar competition in society and politics becomes a marked feature of American life: New York, always the stormy petrel of American political life, leading in this. The prevailing tone of literary production is still dominantly religious, but more and more variant from the uniform sentiment which pervaded the first volume. Massachusetts is still true to its early teachers, and the sermon still remains the most authentic revelation we possess of the mind and heart, the learning and intellectual energy of New England. Here and there are individual cases of rebellion from the fixed government and discipline of the church, but the heavy hand of council or synod, or the earnest pleading of his brethren brings the erring brother to his knees, as in the case of James Davenport; or he finds the service of his Master more congenial elsewhere, as the eminent ability of Jonathan Edwards was lost to Massachusetts. It was a period of unrest in churches, a revival of religious feeling outside of them, and is strongly marked by the assertion of the right of laymembers in the offices of the church. In Connecticut the missionaries of the Church of England were actively and controversially pro)agating their faith from that vantage-ground. New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and the Carolinas were free to them, and Virginia, where severe penalties were enacted against Ioravians, New-Lights and Methodists, was already their own. Owing to sectarian and provincial bigotries, the Dutch Church in New York never assumed the proportions in literary production that the importance of their early colonization would seem to have warranted. How much the general average of intelligence in the Colony entered into this, for the representatives of the church were men of high ability, can only be conjectured, but one historian of the period is authority for the statement that in 1745 there were only fifteen men of academical training in the Province. The church record of New Jersey, in this period, is mainly the printed writings of the brothers Gilbert and John Tennent, the former being compared by his contemporaries to George Whitefield in the eloquence and power of his preaching.

Whether they're about raising chickens or herding sheep, the tales of Jenna Woginrich have caught the imagination of thousands of young homesteaders. As she learns traditional farming skills by trial and error, Woginrich records her offbeat observations and poignant moments with honesty, humility, and humour. In "BarnHeart", she lands at a small rented farm in Vermont, where she struggles to find her place in a reserved New England community filled with working farmers who are scraping by and wealthy vacation-home owners with fancy barns that never house livestock. Woginrich explores her new surroundings with a friendly openness (and a ready fiddle) and finds a community of like-minded people who are keeping alive meaningful regional traditions. Although her barnheart - a term Woginrich coins to describe her state of longing for a farm of her own - never subsides, she makes do on her rented farmstead, caring for her sheep, chickens, geese, ducks, rabbits, a goat, and a turkey, until relationships sour and she's abruptly forced to leave. Where will she (and all her animals) go? Will she finally be able to afford the farm she's always dreamed of? Even when dealing with cranky neighbours, small-town politics, and the loneliness that comes with running a farm on her own, Woginrich never loses her sense of humour. Readers will recognize themselves and find inspiration in this appealing story of longing and striving for a more authentic life.

Yona Stern has travelled from New York to Israel to make amends with her estranged sister, a stoic ideologue and mother of five who has dedicated herself to the radical West Bank settlement cause. Yona's personal life resembles nothing of her sister's, but it isn't politics that drove the two apart. Now a respected Jerusalem Talmud teacher, Mark Greenglass was once a drug dealer saved by an eleventh-hour turn to Orthodox Judaism. But for reasons he can't understand, he's lost his once fervent religious passion. Is he through with God? Is God through with him? Enter Aaron Blinder, a year-abroad dropout with a history of failure whose famous father endlessly - some say obsessively - mines the Holocaust for his best-selling, melodramatic novels. Desperate for approval, Aaron finds a home on the violent fringe of Israeli society, with unforeseen and devastating consequences. In a sweeping, beautifully written story, Joan Leegant, winner of the PEN New England Book Award and the Edward Lewis Wallant Award, and a finalist for the National Jewish Book Award, weaves together three lives caught in the grip of a volatile and demanding faith. Emotionally wrenching and unmistakably timely, Wherever You Go shines a light on one of the most disturbing elements in Israeli society: Jewish extremist groups and their threat to the modern, democratic state. This is a stunningly prescient novel.

Napoleon's Conquest of Europe Greenwood Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Poised to strike at England in the summer of 1805, Napoleon found himself facing a coalition of European powers determined to limit his territorial ambitions. Still, in less than one hundred days, Napoleon's armies marched from the English Channel to Central Europe, crushing the armies of Austria and Russia-the first step in his conquest of Europe. In this telling new account, Schneid demonstrates how this was possible. Schneid details how Napoleon's victory over the Third Coalition was the product of years of diplomatic preparation and the formation of French alliances. He played upon the prevailing conditions of the European state system and the internal politics of the Holy Roman Empire to improve France's strategic position. This war must be understood in the context of the French Revolution and its influence on major and minor European states. In some cases, Napoleonic diplomacy returned to France's traditional and historic relationships; in others, he capitalized upon longstanding competition and animosities to gather allies and create wedges. Schneid approaches the campaign from a broad diplomatic, economic, and military perspective, including not only the French perspective, but the points of view of the other powers involved as well. This telling account reveals that the road to Vienna was paved long before Napoleon's armies marched upon the enemies arrayed against them.
