Textualities, Intellectual Disputes, Intercultural Transfer
Author: Marc André Bernier,Clorinda Donato,Hans-Jürgen Lüsebrink
Publisher: University of Toronto Press
In recent years scholars have turned their attention to the rich experience of the Jesuits in France and Spain’s American colonies. That attention has brought a flow of new editions and translations of Jesuit accounts of the Americas; it is now time for a study that examines the full range of that work in a comparative perspective. Jesuit Accounts of the Colonial Americas offers the first comprehensive examination of such writings and the role they played in solidifying images of the Americas. The collection also provides a much-needed re-examination of the work of the Jesuits in relation to Enlightenment ideals and the modern social sciences and humanities – two systems of thought that have in the past appeared radically opposed, but which are brought together here under the rubric of modern ethnographic knowledge. Linking Jesuit texts, the rhetorical tradition, and the newly emerging anthropology of the Enlightenment, this collection traverses the vast expanses of Old and New World France and Spain in fascinating new ways.
The Old South and American National Character
Author: William R. Taylor
Publisher: Oxford University Press
William Taylor's Cavalier and Yankee was one of the most famous works of American history written in the 1960s. The book is an intellectual history of the South before the Civil War, the perception of it in the North, and the effect it had upon the nation in the years from 1800 to 1860. First published in 1961 and out of print for several years, Taylor's classic study remains essential to the study of the pre-Civil War South.
A Chronicle of Colonial New York
Author: Maud Wilder Goodwin
Publisher: Cosimo, Inc.
Sea commerce at this time had so far outstripped a naval power adequate to protect it that piracy grew more and more profitable, and many a respected sea merchant held private stock in some more than dubious sea venture.-from "Privateers and Pirates"First published in 1919, this now-classic history chronicles the settlement and early life of what would become the greatest city in the world, from the first European traders and settlers to the civic life of the colony in the 18th century. In vivid, dramatic prose, Goodwin describes: .Henry Hudson's arrival in New York harbor.the Dutch West India Company's early charter in the New World.the government of the burghers, and the first English governors.the brutal treatment of Negro slaves in the burgeoning city.the waves of immigration that saw surges in the city's population.and much more.MAUD WILDER GOODWIN (1856-1935) wrote extensively on American history, including The Colonial Cavalier, Or Southern Life Before the Revolution (1895), White Aprons: A Romance of Bacon's Rebellion, Virginia, 1676 (1897), Historic New York (1899), and Sir Christopher: A Romance of a Maryland Manor in 1644 (1901).
A Constitutional History of Property Rights
Author: James W. Ely Jr.
Publisher: Oxford University Press
The Guardian of Every Other Right chronicles the pivotal role of property rights in fashioning the American constitutional order from the colonial era to the current controversies over eminent domain and land use controls. The book emphasizes the interplay of law, ideology, politics, and economic change in shaping constitutional thought and provides a historical perspective on the contemporary debate about property rights. Since publication of the original edition of this work, both academic and popular interest in the constitutional rights of property owners has markedly increased. Now in its third edition, this text has been revised to incorporate a full treatment of important judicial decisions, notable legislation, and scholarship since the second edition appeared in 1997. In particular, Ely provides helpful background and context for understanding the controversial Kelo decision relating to the exercise of eminent domain power for "public use." Covering the entire history of property rights in the United States, this new edition continues to fill a major gap in the literature of constitutional history and is an ideal text for students of legal and constitutional history.
