Conquer and Colonize: Stevenson's Regiment and California
Автор: Donald C. Biggs
Издательство: Presidio Press

Количество страниц: 263

When President James Polk authorized the raising of a regiment of volunteers in New York after the 1846 declaration of war between the United States and Mexico, Jonathan Stevenson, a man with proper Democratic Party credentials, was named to recruit and lead its members. Donald Biggs, former director of the California Historical Society, has written a history of the regiment tracing its recruitment and training in New York, its arrival in California in March 1847, its deployment throughout both Alta and Baja California, its members' reactions to gold fever, and its mustering out. He then follows the regiment's former members into the gold fields, San Francisco businesses, and public life. Biggs concludes that a majority of members of Stevenson's Regiment became an important and positive force in the Americanization of California. A minority of the regiment's members became outlaws, like Jack Powers, or members of the Hounds, like Samuel Roberts, or filibusters, like Joseph Morehead, or had a brief career in smuggling, as did Ira Johnson in San Diego. Biggs effectively and persuasively points out that many historians, instead of looking at the constructive work of the majority of former regiment members, have emphasized the role of the minority, particularly of the Hounds. He performs the important task of correcting our view of the impact of the regiment.

Medieval Technology and Social Change
Автор: Lynn White
Издательство: Oxford University Press
Год издания: 1974
isbn: 0195002660
Количество страниц: 224

Формат: PDF (scan)

In Medieval Technology and Social Change, Lynn White considers the effects of technological innovation on the societies of medieval Europe: the slow collapse of feudalism with the development of machines and tools that introduced factories in place of cottage industries, and the development of the manorial system with the introduction of new kinds of plows and new methods of crop rotation. One invention of particular import, writes White, was the stirrup, which in turn introduced heavy, long-range cavalry to the medieval battlefield. The development thus escalated small-scale conflict to "shock combat." Cannons and flamethrowers followed, as did more peaceful inventions, such as watermills and reapers.

Treasures of the Czars from the State Museums of the Moscow Kremlin, presented by the Florida International Museum, was an important and long-awaited event in the lives of two nations - Russia and the United States of America. Hundreds of art objects formed an exhibit brought directly from the Kremlin Armory Museum in Moscow to the newly opened Florida International Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. The unprecedented exhibition included glittering icons, golden chalices, pearl-encrusted gospel covers, ornamental crucifixes, rich imperial regalia and ecclesiastical vestments, plus weapons, armor, tapestries, textiles and toys. This book has high-quality color photographs of many of these wonderful items, accompanied by text by the Kremlin curators.

The Lands of Partitioned Poland, 1795-1918 (History of East Central Europe Volume VII)
Автор: Piotr S. Wandycz
Издательство: University of Washington Press
Год издания: 1993
isbn: 0295953586
Количество страниц: 431
Язык: english
Формат: PDF (scan)

The Lands of Partitioned Poland, 1795-1918 comprehensively covers an important, complex, and controversial period in the history of Poland and East Central Europe, beginning in 1795 when the remnanst of the Polish Commonwealth were distributed among Prussia, Austria, and Russia, and culminating in 1918 with the re-establishment of an independent Polish state. Until this thorough and authoritative study, literature on the subject in English has been limited to a few chapters in multiauthored works. Chronologically, Wandycz traces the histories of the lands under Prussian, Austrian, and Russian rule, pointing out their divergent evolution as well as the threads that bound them together. The result is a balanced, comprehensive picture of the social, political, economic, and cultural developments of all nationalities inhabiting the land of the old commonwealth, rather than a limited history of one state (Poland) and one people (the Poles).

1919 The Year Our World Began
Автор: William K. Klingaman
Издательство: Harper & Row
Год издания: 1989
isbn: 0060972513
Количество страниц: 689
Язык: english
Формат: PDF (scan)

This book is a collection of accounts about the crucial year in world history. The Versailles Peace Conference takes center stage, while many other details, including the baseball season which will culminate with the Black Sox scandal, social trends of great and minor import (Prohibition and Votes for Women, as well as new fashion trends), Herbert Hoover's observations on the humanitarian crisis the world faced in the former Austro-Hungarian Empire, and revolutionary fervor in Germany, Russia, Ireland, India, and elsewhere, are interspersed throughout the book, giving us a feel of what life was like in 1919. One world war comes to an end while the roots of a second begin, the shooting continues in eastern Europe, and the seeds of future wars are planted in the Middle East.

Kiev: A Portrait, 1800-1917
Автор: Michael F. Hamm
Издательство: Princeton University Press
Год издания: 1993
isbn: 069103253X
Количество страниц: 304
Язык: english
Формат: PDF (scan)

In an "urban biography," Michael Hamm tells the story of one of Europe's most diverse cities and its distinctive mix of Ukrainian, Polish, Russian, and Jewish inhabitants. A splendid urban center in medieval times, Kiev became a major metropolis in late Imperial Russia, and is now the capital of independent Ukraine. After a concise account of Kiev's early history, Hamm focuses on the city's dramatic growth in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The first historian to analyze how each of Kiev's ethnic groups contributed to the vitality of the city's culture, he also examines the violent conflicts that developed among them. He shows why Kiev came to be known for its "abundance of revolutionaries" and its anti-Semitic violence. This carefully detailed account reveals another side of the city's history. It helps to put present events in context, showing that at least one of the 'new' nationalisms in the former Soviet Union has old and very deep roots.

The Birth of the Modern World Society 1815-1830
Автор: Paul Johnson
Издательство: Harper Perennial
isbn: 0060922826
Количество страниц: 1095
Язык: english
Формат: PDF (scan)

This hefty book is a chronicle of the period that laid the foundations of the modern world. From the terrible conflicts of this century we have learned that, in addition to the devastation they wreak, big wars can accelerate ongoing innovations in organization and material technologies that will in turn expand the scale, complexity, and logistical reach of those human communities able to recover quickly from the conflagrations. Just so, Paul Johnson boldly argues in this vast and vastly rich book, the matrix of the modern world was largely formed in the years between the battles of Waterloo and New Orleans in 1815 and the overthrow of the restored French monarchy in 1830. According to Johnson, modernity was conceived in the 1780′s. But the actual birth, delayed by the long, destructive gestation period formed by the Napoleonic wars, could begin in full measure only when peace came and the immense new resources in finance, management, science, and technology which were now available could be put to constructive purposes.

История письма в Средние Века
Автор: Добиаш-Рождественская О.А.

Год издания: 1936
Количество страниц: 230
Язык: русский

Условия, в каких выходит „Руководство латинской палеографии", во многих отношениях мало благоприятны для безупречности и успеха книги, ставящей себе цель, подобную данной.
Они мало благоприятны для ее безупречности. На доказательстве этого положения не приходится останавливаться особенно долго. Оно слишком понятно каждому, кто хотя бы отдаленно причастен к историческому исследованию вообще и в особенности—к предметам, подобным тому, какой стоит в заголовке нашей книги. Латинская палеография есть „вспомогательная дисциплина" медиевиста, — орудие ученого, исследующего латинское средневековье.
