Peter Kirby's analytical survey of child labor during the industrial revolution asserts that the concentration by some historians and social commentators upon small numbers of industrially-employed children has diverted attention from the important role of the working child within the context of the family, the labor market and the state. Kirby convincingly argues that during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, child labor provided an invaluable contribution both to economic growth and to the incomes of working-class households. The book also discusses the major issues involved in the study of children's employment.
There is a feeling among the electorate that something is terribly wrong with America and its leadership. This perception defines one of those rare moments when sustained change is possible at the local, state, and national levels. But change demands bold action. Taking their cue from the courageous Strengthening of America Commission, chaired by Senators Sam Nunn and Pete Domenici, the authors lay down a comprehensive blueprint including: a 7-year write-down to a zero deficit budget; strict caps on the growth of non-Social Security entitlements; and the substitution of a tax code that favors savings, investment, and growth. The authors also call for a process of deregulation that develops innovative market approaches through careful and inclusive dialogue. Abshire and Brower call for the experiments underway in our states and localities to summon the creativity of the American business revolution. They put forth a cogent analysis of the leadership problem in our public life and the need for character, strategic direction, and vision. And ultimately, it is the idea of the American family, personally and nationally, to which the authors turn for the ideas that animate these changes and to define those who will be the enduring beneficiaries. In short, they urge a reemphasis on the unum in our national motto, e pluribus unum.
In this highly original book James Cracraft provides a major case study of the cultural revolution in Russia initiated by Peter the Great, tsar and first emperor (1682-1725). He recounts in fascinating detail how modern standards of architecture supplanted traditional norms in Russia following a massive injection of European expertise and indicates how, thereby, the modern Russian built world came into being. The first comprehensive study of the Petrine revolution in Russian architecture to be published in any language, the book includes nearly 250 illustrations, many of them original photographs appearing here for the first time.
Eight years before the American Revolution, orphan Peter York is adopted by a strict Quaker farmer. Peter sees his chance to break away by capturing a runaway indentured servant for reward money. But the capture leads to consequences Peter cannot foresee. Written by a Newbery Honor-winning author.
Focusing on a number of historical and literary personalities who were regarded with disdain in the aftermath of the 1917 revolution--figures such as Peter the Great, Ivan the Terrible, Alexander Pushkin, Leo Tolstoy, and Mikhail Lermontov--"Epic Revisionism" tells the fascinating story of these individuals' return to canonical status during the darkest days of the Stalin era. An inherently interdisciplinary project, "Epic Revisionism" features pieces on literary and cultural history, film, opera, and theater. This volume pairs scholarly essays with selections drawn from Stalin-era primary sources--newspaper articles, unpublished archival documents, short stories--to provide students and specialists with the richest possible understanding of this understudied phenomenon in modern Russian history. "These scholars shed a great deal of light not only on Stalinist culture but on the politics of cultural production under the Soviet system."--David L. Hoffmann, "Slavic Review"
From Le Corbusier to the Helvetica font, Switzerland has produced some of the most influential product and graphic design of the twentieth century. This sleek volume collects the best examples spanning from the early twentieth century (tiny slippers with pom-poms attached, made for little girls in the 1930s) to 2007 (Peter Muller's most recent avant garde fashion collection). One chapter is devoted to things that are "Small and Beautiful," like a 1926 pocket watch by Movado or the 2006 MX Revolution Logitech computer mouse, while others collect "Tiny Helpers" like the series of Swiss bank notes produced in 1997. In "Up to the Mountains" we find snowboards, chalets, avalanche dogs and other high-design rescue equipment, and in "The Longsellers," we get to classics like the Swiss army knife, an iconic vegetable peeler and Le Corbusier's famous LC1 1928 armchair. An extremely sexy book packed with great visuals and truly pertinent information.

Outlandish! tells the story of an unusual society, one composed exclusively of women. Impossible? Not with oocyte fusion, the blending of the genetic characteristics of two women, which produced only female children. This unfortunate necessity, after the bloody revolution, treachery, and counterrevolution aboard their Starship, over generations of travel, and colonization, became a familiar way of life. Until, that is, they realized that with their advanced genetic knowledge, they could recreate the missing portion of humanity, if they dared. It was common knowledge that men were unstable, and dangerous. Cautiously, they developed "kinder, gentler," companions, which they called males. The males became their household servants, their pets and slaves. ... Their willing slaves...
Wie verhAlt sich heute ein innovativer Architekt angesichts der elektronischen Revolution, die im Gange ist?

"This will be an important book, and a powerful exemplar for the growing numbers of anthropologists who seek to place such things as democracy, citizenship, and neoliberalism under an ethnographic lens."--James Ferguson, author of "Expectations of Modernity: Myths and Meanings of Urban Life on the Zambin Copperbelt "In joining activism and fine ethnography, Paley enables us to appreciate the profound complexity of the links between civil society and public institutions. Chakrabarty's assessment of "the undemocratic foundations of 'democracy'" becomes a fine analytic tool as it is refracted in the words of the women of Poblacion La Bandera."--Charles Briggs, author of "Learning How to Ask "Paley has produced an insightful and fascinating exploration of the shifting meanings of democracy for the Chilean state and for shantytown activists across the Pinochet dictatorship and through the contradictory democratic politics of the 1990s. The marketing of democracy is a highly relevant issue for societies and states throughout the world."--Kay Warren, author of "Indigenous Movements and Their Critics: Pan-Maya Activism in Guatemala "An important challenge to Polyanna conventional wisdoms about democratic transitions and neo-liberal miracles in Chile and its neighbors."--Peter Winn, author of "Weavers of Revolution "This is anthropology as the observation of and involvement in, the new, participatory politics of the previously excluded."--Sally Falk Moore, author of "Law as Process

The book is a must-read for anyone interested in starting or building a business." - Peter Lewis, Chairman and CEO, The Progressive Corporation " The University of Phoenix is largest private university in the United States.

This collection takes a refreshingly original approach to the phenomenon of the radical right. Most studies have tended to concentrate on particular movements in a single country, neglecting to a greater or lesser extent the international dimensions of right-wing extremism. By contrast, Merkl and Weinberg adopt a comparative perspective, concentrating on the revival of the right across a variety of countries. For example, the work contains data from Lauri Karvonen reviewing levels of support from rightist values in all members of the European Union. Piero Ignazi discusses the appearance of a silent 'counter-revolution' all over western Europe and Peter Merkl explores of the reasons for the popularity of right-wing parties in Europe at this particular point in the continent's history. As well as studying movements in Britain, France and the United States, this book provides data from places as diverse as the Ukraine, South Africa, Belarus and Romania.
