Les Origines Du Socialisme Parlementaire En Australie, 1850-1920, Terry Irving

Terence H Irving, Dr (Terry)

Challenges To Labour History, Terry Irving Jan 2014

Challenges To Labour History, Terry Irving

Terence H Irving, Dr (Terry)

The decline of the labour movement in the 1980s and 1990s robbed labour history of its elan as 'history with a social purpose', and the rise of postmodernism devalued the attempt by labour historians to grasp social reality as a whole. Today there is a commonly expressed feeling that labour history is experiencing a crisis. The first three essays in this volume are historiographical; then four essays engage with the challenges posed by post-modernism and cultural theory; and finally four essays present examples of the ways in which theoretical reappraisals can shape the writing of labour history.

Anticipating The Atom: Popular Perceptions Of Atomic Power Before Hiroshima, Jacques D'Emal Jul 1994

Anticipating The Atom: Popular Perceptions Of Atomic Power Before Hiroshima, Jacques D'Emal

Jacques d'Emal

Before Hiroshima made the Bomb an object of popular concern, possible implications and applications of atomic physics had been discussed in the public forum. The new science of X-rays and radium promised the possibilities of unlimited energy and the transmutation of elements in the two decades leading up to World War I. During the twenties, as scientific method struggled to keep pace with atomic theory, discussion centered on the feasibility of atomic disintegration as an energy source and the many uses of radium. The 1927 case of the New Jersey Radium Dial Painters, who sued their employers for compensation after ...

Traditionelle Wertmuster Und Der Krieg In Ex-Jugoslawien, Joel Halpern, Hannes Grandits May 1994

Traditionelle Wertmuster Und Der Krieg In Ex-Jugoslawien, Joel Halpern, Hannes Grandits

Joel M. Halpern

The various national movements in the Southern Slavonic countries concerned themselves very thoroughly with their respective village cultures. In them, in a world of rapid modernization, they sought to find and detect their origins and to understand what characteristics their people and makes it special. This more often than not resulted in a romantic transfiguration and idealization of rural or village value patterns,as seen from an urban, intellectual perspective. These patterns,as it were, should be "characteristic"of the nation and serve as models. Furthermore, we seek to place some traditional value patterns into the context of the war ...

The Civil Sword And The Scottish Kirk, 1560–1600, Michael Graham Mar 1994

The Civil Sword And The Scottish Kirk, 1560–1600, Michael Graham

Michael F. Graham

This volume presents the evolution of Calvin’s ideas in the latter part of the sixteenth and early part of the seventeenth centuries along national lines. Calvin’s influence is traced in Switzerland, France, Scotland, the Rhinelands, Holland, and England. As John Leith points out in his “Foreword,” this book enables many American Protestants to understand their history, how they came to believe what they do, how scholastic theology of the nineteenth century is firmly rooted in later Calvinism.

De Multro, Traditione Et Occisione Gloriosi Karoli Comitis Flandriarum, Galbert Bruges

Jeff Rider

Rider's edition is the first to be based on representatives of both the Multrum's manuscript traditions since the Bollandists' heavily emended seventeenth-century edition. It offers the first complete and accurate critical apparatus for the text including all the variants of the existing manuscripts and early editions. It also takes into account emendations suggested by scholars since the mid-nineteenth century (Köpke, Pirenne, Thomas and Ross). Readers are thus provided with all the surviving textual evidence and may evaluate for themselves the editor's decisions. Rider's text also indicates, for the first time, the original divisions of the Multrum ...

Reading Between The Texts: Benjamin Thomas's 'Abraham Lincoln' And Stephen Oates's 'With Malice Toward None', Robert Bray Dec 1993

Reading Between The Texts: Benjamin Thomas's 'Abraham Lincoln' And Stephen Oates's 'With Malice Toward None', Robert Bray

Robert Bray

This essay, previously published in the 'Journal of Information Ethics' (1994) is the one that ignited the Stephen B. Oates plagiarism scandal; that story is fully told in the companion book, 'Dishonest Abe Scholarship.' 'Reading between the Texts' is an analysis of parallels between the two Lincoln biographies of the title, arguing that Oates's book was in parts written out of Thomas's, without acknowledgement of the former's work.
