  • The Life of Mary Jemison
    The Life of Mary Jemison

    $4.46

    Document Overview:
    The life of Mary Jemison was one of singular vicissitude and trial. Taken captive by the Seneca band of Indians at the early age of thirteen and trained in the wilderness to the ordinary duties of the Indian female, she became imbued with their sentiments, and transformed essentially into one of their own. The narrative of her life cannot fail to awaken our sympathies while it may serve to remind us of the perils which surrounded our ancestors during the period of colonization. Mary Jemison’s story is a remarkable one not because of her extraordinary lifestyle, but because this was the lifestyle that, in the end, she chose for herself. When prisoners were being set free from the bondage of the Indians after the French and Indian War, Mrs. Jemison chose to remain with her Indian friends and accept her Seneca upbringing. As westward expansion began to flourish, those who settled near the Genesee River soon became acquainted with “The White Woman.” Strangers knew Mrs. Jemison for her uncommon generosity.

  • Before Homosexuality in the Arab-Islamic World, 1500-1800
    Before Homosexuality in the Arab-Islamic World, 1500-1800

    $20.25

    Document Overview:
    Attitudes toward homosexuality in the pre-modern Arab-Islamic world are commonly depicted as schizophrenic—visible and tolerated on one hand, prohibited by Islam on the other. Khaled El-Rouayheb argues that this apparent paradox is based on the anachronistic assumption that homosexuality is a timeless, self-evident fact to which a particular culture reacts with some degree of tolerance or intolerance. Drawing on poetry, biographical literature, medicine, dream interpretation, and Islamic texts, he shows that the culture of the period lacked the concept of homosexuality."Meticulously researched, lucidly written, nuanced, and brilliantly conceived, [the book] forthrightly takes on complex issues surrounding the culture of same-sex eroticism that existed in the Arabic-speaking lands of the early modern Ottoman Empire. . . . An important book by an excellent scholar."—Journal of Religion"Rectifies many . . . prejudices and misinterpretations in a masterly fashion."—Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies

    The Army in The Civil War - Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, Volume 6 of 16

    $4.46

    Document Overview:
    Doubleday served under General Patterson in the Shenandoah Valley, June-August 1861. He was appointed Brigadier General, United States Volunteers, February 3, 1862 and led the 2nd Brigade, 1st Division, III Corps at Second Bul Run and took command of the Division on August 30 when General Hatch was wounded. He again led the Division at South Mountain, Antietam and Fredericksburg. He was promoted to Major General, USV, November 9, 1862 and commanded 3rd Division, I Corps, at Chancellorsville, and headed that Corps when General John Reynolds was killed in the Battle of Gettysburg, July 1, 1863. On the first day, Doubleday led the Union troops in their repulse of the Confederate army until reinforcements arrived. Doubleday's top commander, Gen. George G. Meade, was not, however aware of all of the facts concerning Doubleday's meritorious service and Doubleday's division's credit for the ultimate Union victory on the third day of Gettysburg. Therefore, Doubleday did not earn the permanent command of his division; instead it was given to former West Point classmate John Newton, and Doubleday was returned to a lesser command.

  • Democracy and Peace Making
    Democracy and Peace Making

    $81.00

    $81.00

    From:Taylor & Francis Inc;

    Document Overview:
    Democracy and Peace Making surveys the post-war peace settlements of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including the Vienna Congress of 1815, the Treaty of Versailles, the peace settlements of the Second World War, the peace talks after the Korean war and the Paris Peace Accords of 1973.These negotiations have been chosen because of their intrinsic historical importance for what they reveal about the effects of the development of democracy, nationalism and secularisation on the process of peace-making, which had radically altered since the time of the French Revolution. Peace makers had to contend with the contradictions and difficulties caused by the contrast between the new democratic way of negotiation and debate, and the traditional attitudes of pre-1789 European conferences when it was rare for the government of a major European state to be replaced at the victors' insistence, for indemnities to be imposed or for there to be any consideration for the self-determination of peoples involved.Democracy and Peace Making is an invaluable up-to-date account of the process of peace making and draws on the most recent historical thinking.
