The Early Life of Miss Anne Lister and the Curious Tale of Miss Eliza Raine

by Patricia L Hughes

Two young girls pledge undying love, marry each other secretly and promise to live together when they reach the age of twenty-one - but nothing works out as planned. This tale of Georgian England is from real diaries and letters revealing two women whose circumstances changed beyond belief. If you're looking for the sedate world of Jane Austen you won't find it here. This is the wild world of nineteenth century northern England made famous by the Bronte sisters who lived nearby, and based their characters on these real people. Eliza Raine was almost certainly the model for Mrs Rochester in Charlotte Bronte's 'Jane Eyre', while Anne Lister was depicted as 'Shirley' by Anne Bronte. Anne Lister was born in 1791 and started life as the eldest daughter of a poor branch of a landed family. Her d...

Filling in the Pieces: A Survival Story of the Holocaust

by Izaak Sturm

This autobiography is a compelling tale of an individual who survived the full brunt of the Shoah as a teenager, from the first day of the war in the small town of Dembitz in 1939 to liberation in Bergen Belsen in 1945.

Remembering and Disremembering the Dead: Posthumous Punishment, Harm and Redemption over Time (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Floris Tomasini

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licence. This book is a multidisciplinary work that investigates the notion of posthumous harm over time. The question what is and when is death, affects how we understand the possibility of posthumous harm and redemption. Whilst it is impossible to hurt the dead, it is possible to harm the wishes, beliefs and memories of persons that once lived. In this way, this book highlights the vulnerability of the dead, and makes connections to a historical oeuvre, to add critical value to similar concepts in history that are overlooked by most philosophers. There is a long historical view of case studies that illustrate the conceptual character of posthumous punishment; that is, dissection and gibbetting of the criminal corpse after the Murder Act (1752),...

Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Mortality and its Timings: When is Death? (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Shane McCorristine

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This volume provides a series of illuminating perspectives on the timings of death, through in-depth studies of Shakespearean tragedy, criminal execution, embalming practices, fears of premature burial, rumours of Adolf Hitler’s survival, and the legal concept of brain death. In doing so, it explores a number of questions, including: how do we know if someone is dead or not? What do people experience at the moment when they die? Is death simply a biological event that comes about in temporal stages of decomposition, or is it a social event defined through cultures, practices, and commemorations? In other words, when exactly is death? Taken together, these contributions explore how death emerges in a series of stages that are uncertain, p...

The Angevins and the Charter 1154-1216

This series of English History Source Books is intended for use with any ordinary textbook of English History. Experience has conclusively shown that such apparatus is a valuable—nay, an indispensable—adjunct to the history lesson. It is capable of two main uses: either by way of lively illustration at the close of a lesson, or by way of inference-drawing, before the textbook is read, at the beginning of the lesson. The kind of problems and exercises that may be based on the documents are legion, and are admirably illustrated in a History of England for Schools, Part I., by Keatinge and Frazer, pp. 377-381. However, we have no wish to prescribe for the teacher the manner in which he shall exercise his craft, but simply to provide him and his pupils with materials hitherto not readily ...

My Soul is Filled With Joy: A Holocaust Story

by Karen Treiger

This Bronze Medal Winning book (Independent Publishers Book Award in the category of World History) tells the story of Sam and Esther Goldberg who met in the Polish forest – just outside of the Treblinka Death Camp. It was August 3, 1943, just one day after Sam escaped the Camp during a prisoner uprising. With 870,000 murdered at Treblinka, Sam was one of approximately 65 to survive and live until the end of the war. Esther had been hiding in that patch of forest for a year and was out that morning, looking for mushrooms to eat. They met and after hearing of the prisoner revolt, she took him to the Righteous Gentiles who, at danger to themselves, hid them in their barn for three days while the Nazis, Ukrainians and Poles scoured the area. Deciding to stay and hide with Esther, they ...

South Texas Drag

Take a trip through the South Texas terrain through the eyes of drug runner, Toño Garcia. His distinctive South Texas slang adds a unique charm to this dark story, but the appeal and originality doesn't stop there. This guy knows more about style than Carrie Bradshaw, which adds massive flavor and a whole new twist to a tale about "crime as a way of life" in South Texas.Toño sets the mood of every scene by describing the sagebrush and cactuses, the 100-degree heat, the dusty roads, and winding rivers. He sets the mood, too, cluing us into memories, his history. These tales--from the time he had to smuggle prize-winning horse jizz across the border, to the 55-gallon tanks that serve as human caskets for his "colleagues" the Bass brothers when drug deals go wrong--come to...

I was never put in Facebook Prison, but I know many who were. Most of them were just posting or reposting articles that were not favorable to Obama or Hillary. I learned what my purpose was and I came to Facebook every day to fulfill that purpose. Do I understand SnapChat or the power of Instagram or how to market via Pinterest? No. Do I believe everyone should have an interest in politics? In some ways, yes.

The Fighting Cheyennes

by George Bird Grinnell

"This book deals with the wars of the Cheyennes. A fighting and a fearless people. When their struggles with the white men began, some of their older and wiser men strove earnestly to preserve peace, but their efforts failed. During these first wars between the whites and the Cheyennes, the United States Government was struggling for its very life. Its attention was concentrated on the war between the North and the South, and the movements of a few Indians on the thinly settled frontier attracted little notice. As more and more people pushed into the West, there was more and more fighting with Indians, until in 1878-9 it ceased — so far as the Cheyennes were concerned.Since the Indians could not write, the history of their wars has been set down by their enemies, and the story has been ...

Gender and Genre in the Folklore of Middle India (Myth and Poetics)

by Joyce Burkhalter Flueckiger

In Gender and Genre in the Folklore of Middle India, Joyce Burkhalter Flueckiger analyzes six representative Indian folklore genres from a single regional repertoire to show the influence of their intertextual relations on the composition and interpretation of artistic performance. Placing special emphasis on women’s rituals, she looks at the relationship between the framework and organization of indigenous genres and the reception of folklore performance. The regional repertoire under examination presents a strikingly female-centered world. Female performers and characters are active, articulate, and frequently challenge or defy expectations of gender. Men also confound traditional gender roles. Flueckiger includes the translations of two full performance texts of narratives sung by fem...

Religious cults, such as the cult of Isis, formed around the same concepts, claiming to offer the secret of immortality and prosperity to those who sought it for themselves.The Hellenistic age brought a great deal of change in ...

When I was young… a long time ago in a different era to now…my friends used to keep scrapbooks. I never did. I am not sure why. Perhaps I was too shy. Perhaps I did not think that I had all that much to record. As I have grown older, I have realized that I have many wonderful memories to record, and many family stories. Family stories are the essence of family life. Together with photos, they transmit the core of family life from one generation to the next. With the wonder of the internet, I have been able to uncover images of events and places as they were before I was born, and during my life. I have also been able to gather a lot of information about my family that I was not able to get before, and so put together a reticulum of family structure. Each photo represents a moment in my...

The Mystery of the Anasazi Civilization: Surprising Evidence of Spiritual and Astronomical Knowledge of the Mysterious Anasazi’s Civilization of the Remote American Canyons

by Osmanagich Ph.D., Sam

The surface of the Earth over the last two million years provides evidence of the occurrence of eighteen ice ages each lasting about a hundred thousand years. Between them there were short periods of warming, which lasted no more than twelve thousand years. Those were the times when new life cycles would begin. Life blossomed, the planet turned green, and the sounds of various living beings could be heard most everywhere. We are now at the end of one such temporary warm period which began 11,500 years ago. We are rapidly approaching another ice age. Climate changes will intensify, cold regions will become even colder, warm regions even warmer. Another cycle will come to an end. The dominant civilization will come to an end and it will take many generations before another cycle starts over ...

Speaking the Unspeakable in Postwar Germany: Toward a Public Discourse on the Holocaust (Signale: Modern German Letters, Cultures, and Thought)

by Sonja Boos

Speaking the Unspeakable in Postwar Germany is an interdisciplinary study of a diverse set of public speeches given by major literary and cultural figures in the 1950s and 1960s. Through close readings of canonical speeches by Hannah Arendt, Theodor W. Adorno, Ingeborg Bachmann, Martin Buber, Paul Celan, Uwe Johnson, Peter Szondi, and Peter Weiss, Sonja Boos demonstrates that these speakers both facilitated and subverted the construction of a public discourse about the Holocaust in postwar West Germany. The author’s analysis of original audio recordings of the speech events (several of which will be available on a companion website) improves our understanding of the spoken, performative dimension of public speeches. Speaking the Unspeakable in Postwar Germany emphasizes the social constr...
