  • 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...

    Felix Meiner Verlag 2012; US$ 88.94

    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...

  • Wissenschaft für den Kriegby Günter Nagel

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2013; US$ 83.50

    <P>Der historische Spurensucher stößt in Kummersdorf, südlich von Berlin, auf ein weitläufiges Areal ? übersät von Betonklötzen, Ruinen und verfallenen Gebäuden. Die einstige militärische Zweckbestimmung ist offenkundig. Doch was genau geschah hier? Woran wurde geforscht? Wer waren die Wissenschaftler, die in der Abgeschiedenheit der märkischen... more...

    This amazing book collects together true tales of South West spies in the Second World War from across the West Country and the South West. From the Plymouth rescue operations as the exodus from France began to the secret guerrilla army in Plymstock, the first German spies, the amazing story of Jasper Lawn of N51 and the Helford Flotilla (told here... more...

  • Aufstand der Pfeffersäckeby Karin Schneider-Ferber

    Konrad Theiss Verlag 2014; US$ 41.47

    »Wutbürger«: Überall in Deutschland stehen sie gegen geplante Großprojekte auf. Sie misstrauen den Politikern, fordern mehr Transparenz und Teilhabe. Ein neuer gesellschaftlicher Trend? Von wegen. Zornerfüllt und waffenklirrend, lärmend und gewaltbereit ? so standen aufgebrachte Bürger im Mittelalter vor ihrer Obrigkeit. Nichts fürchteten die Mächtigen... more...

  • Yours Till Deathby John Cotton; Lucille Griffith

    University of Alabama Press 1753; US$ 26.95

    "These letters from a yeoman farmer in the Confederate Army to his wife in Coosa County, Alabama, will be of interest to historians not only for the light shed upon the life of the Confederate soldier, but also for frequent allusions to rural life and the operation of the farm in Cotton's absence. He enlisted at Pinckneyville, Alabama, on April 1,... 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...

  • 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.

Memory in Black and White is important reading for all... more...
