David A. Postles Social Proprieties. Social Relations in Early-Modern England (1500-1680)

This book combines theater and life in an attempt to consider how people inter- acted in face-to-face situations in early-modern England, and to examine the wider implications of those relationships for social organization. The research behind the text is interdisciplinary: it draws on mid-Tudor comedies, the City comedies, and early-Stuart plays, illustrating how the dramatic realism of those playwrights interrelates to the real social world."The idea of this book to recreate the social structure from the way persons addressed one another and the variety of social descriptors employed is long overdue." - Richard Smith, FBA Professor of Historical Demography, Cambridge University."It's a novel study of an intrinsically interesting subject, drawn from sources never before systematically explored by social historians. It will prove a useful contribution to early modern English social & cultural history, opening another window on the lives, social networks, and language of ordinary folk."- Margo Todd, Walter H. Annenberg Professor of History, University of Pennsylvania."David Postles was able to successfully combine research across the disciplinary boundaries between social history and literary and sociological analysis.... The result is a subtle and multivalent study of human conduct, social position, and the ways in which early-modern subjects sought to fashioning their own identities-and were in turn fashioned by others- through the language of soc...

C. D. Baker-Carr From Chauffeur to Brigadier-Founder of the Machine Gun Corps . Pioneer of the Development of the Tank

An outstanding pioneer of mechanised and armoured warfareWhile the story of a man who was a civilian driver in 1914, but who rose to become a Brigadier-General in consequence of his services during the four years duration of the First World War cannot be anything but incredible, readers will be astonished to learn that this was by no means the most remarkable aspect of Christopher Baker-Carr's military career. Recognised as the officer in the British Army who knew 'more about machine guns than anyone', Baker-Carr, often opposed, almost single-handedly, brought about the specialised training of machine gunners, the creation of the Machine Gun Training School, the increased manufacture and widespread adoption of the machine gun by the British Army and the creation of the Machine Gun Corps itself. Recognising the potential of a new weapon to break the stalemate of trench warfare, he then became a primary influence in the development of the battle tank becoming commander of the First Tank Brigade. There can be few other British soldiers, who have all but faded from military history, whose role has averted imminent disaster in times of great peril and of whom it can be said that he made a contribution to victory of such importance. Republished in this new edition in cooperation with the author's family, this book is highly recommended to all those interested in the development of modern warfare.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title i...

Peter Burke follows up his magisterial Social History of Knowledge, picking up where the first volume left off around 1750 at the publication of the French Encyclopédie and following the story through to Wikipedia. Like the previous volume, it offers a social history (or a retrospective sociology of knowledge) in the sense that it focuses not on individuals but on groups, institutions, collective practices and general trends. The book is divided into 3 parts. The first argues that activities which appear to be timeless – gathering knowledge, analysing, disseminating and employing it – are in fact time-bound and take different forms in different periods and places. The second part tries to counter the tendency to write a triumphalist history of the 'growth' of knowledge by discussing losses of knowledge and the price of specialization. The third part offers geographical, sociological and chronological overviews, contrasting the experience of centres and peripheries and arguing that each of the main trends of the period – professionalization, secularization, nationalization, democratization, etc, coexisted and interacted with its opposite. As ever, Peter Burke presents a breath-taking range of scholarship in prose of exemplary clarity and accessibility. This highly anticipated second volume will be essential reading across the humanities and social sciences.

Key members of the 1916committee have been identified for extended research and analysis. One additional individualfrequently quoted throughout the Report, John Dewey, received special consideration owing to his stature and influence in the U.S. andthroughout the world.

This examination encompassed the existing viewpoints, the meaning and intentof the 1916 committee, as well as the social and political aspects of the era.

David A. Postles Social Dramas. Literature and Language in Early-Modern England.

The City comedies in early-modern England repeated social tropes and paradigms from which we can deduce much about social attitudes.Although literature is often assumed to belong to the sphere of representation rather than constituting an accurate reflection of social reality, early-modern English drama can tell us much about social attitudes in the early Seventeenth century. The City comedies were, in particular, composed by authors who wereembedded in the mundane social existence of London, in its quotidian transactions and exchanges, in its less salubrious contexts of debt, drinking, death and incarceration.Although the dramatists had slightly differing allegiances, their commentaries all illuminate 'middling' society in the City of London. "This new work by David Postles raises important questions in an innovative manner. It will certainly be welcomed by the historicalcommunity."-Bernard Capp, FBA, Dept of History, University of Warwick "David Postles is one of the most innovative social historians writing today."-Nigel Goose, Professor of Social and Economic History, University of Hertfordshire"This book will be significant reading for all those working in the field. It will be warmly received by readers and reviewers, and will remain a work of reference for scholars and students for the future."- Greg Walker, Regius Professor of Rhetoric and English Literature, University of Edinburgh,

The world has been dramatically changed . . . for the worse. And it is Aaron's fault. He vowed never to use his time machine to change history, only to record history accurately. But a slip leads to a crime organization, the Outfit, chasing Aaron to get the machine. Despite Aaron using the machine to try to escape the Outfit, it ends up stealing the machine. The Outfit then forces Aaron to help it use the machine to radically change the Twentieth Century. The Outfit makes changes that allow the Axis powers to win World War II and take over most countries of the world. The Outfit does this so that it can control the rest of the world through the countries of Germany, Italy, and Japan. Even worse, in order for the world to get rid of the U.S.'s geopolitical competitors, the Outfit uses nuclear weapons to commit genocide in Russia and China. Russia and China cease to exist after the bombings. The Outfit ensures that it is the only entity with nuclear weapons. After making the changes, the Outfit locks Aaron away, keeping him alive only long enough to have him train them to use the machine.

Nascimento Leandro Marques do SMADL - The Social Machines Architecture Description Language

The term 'Social Machine' (SM) has been commonly used as a synonym for what is known as the programmable web or web 3.0, where several web-based systems make their APIs publicly available and establish connections with each other under several and complex restrictions. Some definitions of a Social Machine have already been provided and they basically support the notion of relationships between distributed entities. The type of relationship molds which services would be provided or required by each machine, and under which constraints. In order to deal with the complexity of this emerging web, we present a language that can describe networks of Social Machines, named SMADL - the Social Machine Architecture Description Language. In few words, SMADL is as a relationship-driven language which can be used to describe the interactions between any number of machines in a multitude of ways, as a means to represent real machines interacting in the real web, such as, Twitter running on top of Amazon AWS or mash-ups built upon Google Maps, and obviously, as a means to represent interactions with other social machines too.

A fresh look at the history of psychology placed in its social, political, and cultural contexts A History of Modern Psychology in Context presents the history of modern psychology in the richness of its many contexts. The authors resist the traditional storylines of great achievements by eminent people, or schools of thought that rise and fall in the wake of scientific progress. Instead, psychology is portrayed as a network of scientific and professional practices embedded in specific temporal, social, political, and cultural contexts. The narrative is informed by three key concepts—indigenization, reflexivity, and social constructionism—and by the fascinating interplay between disciplinary Psychology and everyday psychology. The authors complicate the notion of who is at the center and who is at the periphery of the history of psychology by bringing in actors and events that are often overlooked in traditional accounts. They also highlight how the reflexive nature of Psychology—a science produced both by and about humans—accords history a prominent place in understanding the discipline and the theories it generates. Throughout the text, the authors show how Psychology and psychologists are embedded in cultures that indelibly shape how the discipline is defined and practiced, the kind of knowledge it creates, and how this knowledge is received. The text also moves beyond an exclusive focus on the development of North American and European psychologies to explore the development of psychologies in other indigenous contexts, especially from the mid-20th-century onward.

Fritz Fischer The Memory Hole. The U.S. History Curriculum Under Siege

The U.S. history curriculum is under attack. Politicians, political analysts, andideologues seek to wipe clean the slate of the American past and replace it withone of their own invention. The basis for this new narrative comes frompolitical beliefs of the present, rather than any systematic examination of thepast. These anti-historians campaign to insert their version of American historyinto the nation's classrooms, hoping to begin a process that will forevertransform our understanding of America's past.The Memory Hole examines five central topics in the US history curriculum,showing how anti-historians of both the left and right seek to distort these topicsand insert a refashioned story in America's classrooms. Ignoring facts, refashioning other facts and pretendingthat there are no rules in the telling of history, these re-interpreters of the past place the minds of America'syoung people in danger. The beleaguered hero of this book is the discipline of History, and The Memory Holeshows how the history curriculum should adhere to history's habits of mind that require complex, sophisticatedand subtle thinking about the past. History and social studies teachers, students of history and all those who careabout the deep and enduring value of history will value this book and its conclusions.

Irakli Zhorzholiani United States of America - the highest form of empire.

This book is the product of philosophy of history focused on completely different vision of world historical development. The author employs multidisciplinary approach to represent theoretical discourse regarding rise and fall of empires in contrast to modern American empire and about the phenomena of new world order as well. Moreover the book attempts to answer to macro-philosophical and historical questions based on the classical studies of history, philosophy, political and social sciences. Herewith debates, among scholars concerning the real nature of history is still underway. Nevertheless historians were unable to give precise answer how the exact nature of history looks like. Consequently the research has ambitions to clarify the exact nature of history and thus to solve this problem thoroughly.

Ikechukwu Aloysius Orjinta Social Constructivism in international relations and the Gender Dimension

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Politics - Political Theory and the History of Ideas Journal, grade: Eins, LMU Munich (Geschwister-Scholl Institut für Politische Wissenschaft), course: Social Constructivism in International Rel. Theory, language: English, abstract: The goal of this work is to study the Approach of Social Constructivism in International Relations and to anchor this examination to the emergent debate of Feminist Constructivism as an offshoot of Gender in International Relations. To market International Relations as a social construction is to underscore the importance of Interactions, discourse, change and sociality as opposed to Individuality, autarky, power, materiality , rationality and militarism. In this regard Social Constructivism ushers itself in, in the discipline of International Relations as a new alternative to the traditional theories that have hitherto monopolized the way political scientists have been viewing the inter - and intrastate events. Constructivism is the new approach to International Relations. It takes a middle course between realism and liberalism. Constructivism explores the role of ideas, images, symbols, norms, culture and discourse on social life. It stresses that ideational factors such as dialogue and exchange of ideas are more result-oriented in socio-political life than material factors. Constructivism is a social Theory that centers on social life and social change. Focusing on ,,social facts"(Searle 1995...

John K. Rhoads Critical Issues in Social Theory

Critical Issues in Social Theory is an analytical survey of persistent controversies that have shaped the field of sociology. It defines, clarifies, and proposes solutions to these "critical issues" through commentary on the writings of such influential social theorists as Hobbes, Marx, Durkeim, Weber, Mead, Merton, Parsons, and Schutz.Instead of being just another history, or another classification of theories, Rhoads's four-part model allows him to focus attention on issues that remain at the core of sociological theory today. First, Rhoads analyzes the controversy over positivism as the proper methodological model for the study of human society. Is there one science, of which sociology is a branch, or do the peculiarities of sociology's subject matter require a modification of the scientific method borrowed from the natural sciences? Rhoads next considers the relationship of individuals to society and its structures. Does society have a mode of existence distinct from its members, or is it merely an abstraction derived from the characteristics of individuals? Third, a discussion of social order raises the question of whether social order is the consequence of rules and their underlying moral values, or the product of continuous construction based on self-interest. Finally, the relative importance of consensus and conflict in social relationships is addressed. Is society better understood as a community united by beliefs, values, and rules, or is the social ...

Addressing Social Issues in the Classroom and Beyond. The Pedagogical Efforts of Pioneers in the Field (PB)

Addressing Social Issues in the Classroom and Beyond: The Pedagogical Efforts of Pioneers in the Field is comprised of essaysthat delineate the genesis and evolution of the thought and work of pioneers in the field of social issues and education. The authors (many ofwhom, themselves, are noted professors of education and who have done significant work in the field of social issues and education) delineateand analyze the efforts (e.g., theoretical work, research, curriculum development, and teaching) of such pioneers within the largerframework of their life-story. As a result, the reader is not only introduced to the significant work of each pioneer but valuable and often fascinatinginsights into how his/her life experiences informed his/her thinking, beliefs, goals and work.This book constitutes a rich and unusual record of the thinking and accomplishments of those luminaries who worked tirelessly inthe belief that a well-educated and well-informed populace was absolutely imperative in a democracy if the latter were to remain healthy andvibrant.Beyond current scholars and students, we believe that this book will be of great interest to a wide spectrum of individuals: teachereducators who perceive the need to avail their students of the rich history, rationales and methods for incorporating the study of social issuesacross the curriculum; professors who teach history of curriculum courses and/or history of education courses are likely to be drawn to thebook, both for the rich ...

R. G. Collingwood The Idea of History .1946 Edition.

Книга "The Idea of History [1946 Edition]".2014 Reprint of 1946 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. R. C. Collingwood (1889-1943) was an English philosopher and historian. Collingwood is most famous for his book "The Idea of History." The book came to be a major inspiration for philosophy of history in the English-speaking world. It is extensively cited. According to Collingwood, the science which is dedicated to the study of mind is history. Collingwood's philosophy of mind and action is thus to be found in his philosophy of history, primarily in "The Idea of History" (1946). The claim that history is the study of mind is prima facie counter-intuitive because many of us tend to think of history as a descriptive science of the past rather than as a normative science of thought. Collingwood's claim that history is the study of mind is in line with the distinction between the Naturwissenschaften and Geisteswissenschaften that is found in continental philosophy of social science.

Dimitrios I. Roussopoulos Political Ecology. The Climate Crisis and a New Social Agenda

Political Ecology explains the history of environmental politics and its prospects for the future. This highly readable classic is now available in a revised and expanded edition. Political Ecology opens by presenting the history of the state management of the environment, then moves to an overview of the great variety of popular responses to the ecological crisis, before finally discussing the main political tendencies offered by the ecology movement. Ecological activists, Roussopoulos argues, aim for more than protecting the environment; they call for new communities, new lifestyles, and a new way of doing politics.The concluding sections explore how we can channel the aspirations of environmentalism into such political alternatives, and they provide a set of striking examples of successes inspired by social ecology. This edition is updated with a new postscript reflecting on Paris COP21.

Jeremy W Kilar Michigan.s Lumbertowns. Lumberman and Laborers in Saginaw, Bay City, and Muskegon, 1870-1905

Michigan's foremost lumbertowns, flourishing urban industrial centers in the late 19th century, faced economic calamity with the depletion of timber supplies by the end of the century. Turning to their own resources and reflecting individual cultural identities, Saginaw, Bay City, and Muskegon developed dissimilar strategies to sustain their urban industrial status. This study is a comprehensive history of these lumbertowns from their inception as frontier settlements to their emergence as reshaped industrial centers.Primarily an examination of the role of the entrepreneur in urban economic development, Michigan Lumbertowns considers the extent to which the entrepreneurial approach was influenced by each city's cultural-ethnic construct and its social history. More than a narrative history, it is a study of violence, business, and social change.

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject Business economics - Economic and Social History, grade: 1,0, Abo Akademi, Finnland (Hanken), course: Economic History and Development, 19 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Human migration denotes any movement of groups of people from one locality to another, rather than of individual wanderers. Over the course of prehistoric time and in history, humans have been known to make large migrations . The term "migration" refers to the territorial mobility determined by economic reasons (e.g. the research of better working conditions) or politic reasons (e.g. the research of more suitable situations for the exert of collective and individuals rights).The aim of this paper is to analyze the migration process that interested most of the 19th century. In order to understand the phenomenon I will try to find out the economic and social reasons and the individual motivations of migrants that led to this big and massive movement of human and capital resources. I will then try to understand which has been the importance of this phenomenon in the definition of the new cultural and economic world asset. The history of each of the countries is reflected in their emigration distribution patterns.

Measuring History. Cases of State-Level Testing Across the United States (PB)

Measuring History complements the cases presented in Wise Social Studies Practices (Yeager & Davis, 2005). Yeager and Davis highlightthe rich and ambitious teaching that can occur in the broad context of state-level testing. In this book, the chapter authors and I bring the particularstate history tests more to the fore and examine how teachers are responding to them. At the heart of Measuring History are cases ofclassroom teachers in seven states (Florida, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, Texas, Mississippi, and Virginia) where new social studies standardsand new, and generally high-stakes, state-level history tests are prominent. In these chapters, the authors describe and analyze thestate's testing efforts and how those efforts are being interpreted in the context of classroom practice. The results both support and challengeprevailing views on the efficacy of testing as a vehicle for educational reform. Catherine Horn (University of Houston) and I lay the groundworkfor the case studies through a set of introductory chapters that examine the current environment, the research literature, and the technicalqualities of history tests.

In this lively and accessible book, Colin Heywood explores the changing experiences and perceptions of childhood from the early Middle Ages to the beginning of the twentieth century. Heywood examines the different ways in which people have thought about childhood as a stage of life, the relationships of children with their families and peers, and the experiences of young people at work, in school and at the hands of various welfare institutions. The aim is to place the history of children and childhood firmly in its social and cultural context, without losing sight of the many individual experiences that have come down to us in diaries, autobiographies and oral testimonies. Heywood argues that there is a cruel paradox at the heart of childhood in the past. On the one hand, material conditions for children have generally improved in the West, however belatedly and unevenly, and they are now more valued than in the past. On the other hand, the business of preparing for adulthood has become more complicated in urban and industrial societies, as the young face a bewildering array of choices and expectations. A History of Childhood will be an essential introduction to the subject for students of history, the social sciences and cultural studies.

Friedrich List National System of Political Economy - Volume 1. The History

History everywhere shows us a powerful process of reciprocal action between the social and individual powers and conditions. In the Italian and Hanseatic cities, in Holland and England, in France and America, we find the powers of production, and consequently the wealth of individuals, growing in proportion to the liberties enjoyed, to the degree of perfection of political and social institutions.-from "The Teachings of History"One of the most prominent economic philosophers of the 19th century, on a par with-but espousing quite different thinking than-Karl Marx and Adam Smith explores, in the three-volume National System of Political Economy, a reasoned doctrine of national and pan-national management of trade, a global collaboration between government and business. Volume 1 examines the pronounced influence of freedom prudently balanced with regulation in the economic histories of the nations of Europe and North America. A close reading of this 1841 classic is an absolute necessity for anyone who hopes to understand world economic history of the last 150 years.German economist and journalist FRIEDRICH LIST (1789-1846) served as professor of administration and politics at the University of Tübingen, but was later jailed and later exiled to America for his political views. His is also the author of Outlines of American Political Economy (1827).

Terror was central to the Nazi regime, and the Nazi concentration camps were places of horror where prisoners were dehumanized and robbed of their dignity and where millions were murdered. How did prisoners cope with the brutal and degrading conditions of life within the camps? In this highly original book Maja Suderland takes the reader inside the concentration camps and examines the everyday social life of prisoners – their daily activities and routines, the social relationships and networks they created and the strategies they developed to cope with the harsh conditions and the brutality of the guards. Without overlooking the violence of the camps, the contradictions of camp life or the elusive complexity of the multicultural prisoner society, Suderland explores the hidden social practices that enabled prisoners to preserve their human dignity and create a sense of individuality and community despite the appalling circumstances. This remarkable account of social life in extreme conditions will be of great interest to students and scholars in history, sociology and the social sciences generally, as well as to a wider readership interested in the Holocaust and the concentration camps.
