Most popular at the top

    University Press of New England 2015; US$ 59.99

    A valuable reference guide to Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey in the Civil War more...

  • A Young General and the Fall of Richmondby G. William Quatman

    Ohio University Press 2015; US$ 23.99

    Despite his military achievements and his association with many of the great names of American history, Godfrey Weitzel (1835?1884) is perhaps the least known of all the Union generals. After graduating from West Point, Weitzel, a German immigrant from Cincinnati, was assigned to the Army Corps of Engineers in New Orleans. The secession of Louisiana... more...

  • Vergelding, waarheidsvinding, verzoeningby M.M. Dolman

    Amsterdam University Press 2005; US$ 13.50

    Hoe kan de internationale gemeenschap adequaat reageren op genocide, misdaden tegen de menselijkheid en oorlogsmisdrijven? Soms wordt in twijfel getrokken of het (internationale) strafrecht het meest geschikte instrument is om belangrijke doeleinden als waarheidsvinding en verzoening te verwezenlijken. De internationale strafrechtspleging ondervindt... more...

  • Eight Years in Southern Prisonsby Beecher Deason

    Garrett County Press 2011; US$ 0.99

    Published in the 1920s, this is a fascinating and engrossing account of the southern prison system as told by a man on the inside. This was a time when a short stint in prison might easily mean a death sentence, as prisoners were subjected to endless labor under the constant threat of violence and death (from "bosses" and prisoners). This is the rural... more...

  • Early New World Monumentalityby Richard L. Burger; Robert M. Rosenswig

    University Press of Florida 2012; US$ 85.00

    In studies of ancient civilizations, the focus is often on the temples, palaces, and buildings created and then left behind, both because they survive and because of the awe they still inspire today. From the Mississippian mounds in the United States to the early pyramids of Peru, these monuments have been well-documented, but less attention has been... more...

  • Die Sachen der Aufklärungby Frauke Berndt; Daniel Fulda

    Felix Meiner Verlag 2012; US$ 91.44

    Hauptbeschreibung Die Sache der Aufklärung meinen wir zu kennen - die Aufklärer forderten Gedankenfreiheit, Selbstbestimmung, eine Lebensführung nach Maßgabe der Vernunft und bürgerliche Rechte. Weniger bekannt sind die konkreten Sachen, für die sich das 18. Jahrhundert interessierte: Dinge des Alltags, die materiale Dimension von Erkenntnis, Kultur... more...

  • Geschichte Altamerikasby Hanns J. Prem

    De Gruyter Oldenbourg 2008; US$ 490.00

    Die Geschichte der vorspanischen Hochkulturen Amerikas, insbesondere die der Azteken, Maya und Inka und ihrer Vorläufer, faszinierte lange Zeit schon, weil sie geheimnisvoller, unbekannter erschien als die der Alten Welt. Forschungsfortschritte der letzten Jahrzehnte, vor allem die Entzifferung der Maya-Hieroglyphenschrift, brachten ungeahnte neue... more...

  • Memory in Black and Whiteby Paul A. Shackel; Dwight T. Pitcaithley

    AltaMira Press 2003; US$ 32.99

    Paul Shackel uses four well-known Civil War-era National Park sites to illustrate the evolution of commemorative expression at sites of controversy. He shows how interpretation may change dramatically from one generation to another as interpreters try to accommodate, or ignore, certain memories. Memory in Black and White is important reading for all... more...

  • Icons of Powerby Nicholas J. Saunders

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    Icons of Power investigates why the image of the cat has been such a potent symbol in the art, religion and mythology of indigenous American cultures for three thousand years. The jaguar and the puma epitomize ideas of sacrifice, cannibalism, war, and status in a startling array of graphic and enduring images. Natural and supernatural felines inhabit... more...

  • Von Helden und Opfernby Jörg Koch

    WBG - Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft 2014; US$ 45.15

    In jeder Gemeinde Deutschlands stehen Denkmäler für die Kriege 1870/71, 1914?1918 und 1939?1945: triumphale Siegesmale für den Deutsch-Französischen Krieg, Gefallenendenkmäler für die verlorenen Weltkriege. In allerjüngster Zeit erst wurden das Ehrenmal der Bundeswehr und das Denkmal für die ermordeten Sinti und Roma geweiht, werden Stolpersteine zur... more...
