4 ABULAFIA, David Discovery of Mankind: Atlantic Encounters in the Age of Columbus. First Edition in dustjacket
Yale University Press, New Haven and London, 2008, ISBN:9780300125825 
ABULAFIA, David. The Discovery of Mankind : Atlantic Encounters in the Age of Columbus. New Haven and London : Yale University Press, (2008). First Printing. Pp (6),[vii]-xxvi,(6),[3]-379,(7). First Printing. Maps in the text. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. David Abulafia, FSA, FRHistS, FBA (b. December 12, 1949, Twickenham, London). "The first landings in the Atlantic World heralded striking and often terrifying impressions of peoples entirely isolated from the explorer's continents, customs and religions. From the first recorded encounters with the native inhabitants of the Canary Islands in 1341, to Columbus's explorations in 1492 and Cabral's discovery of Brazil in 1500, western Europeans struggled to make sense of the existence of the peoples they met. Were they Adam's children, of a common lineage with the peoples of the Old World, or were they a separate creation, the monstrous races of medieval legend? Should they govern themselves? Did theyhave the right to be free? Did they know God? Could they know God? Emphasi zing contact between peoples rather than the discovery of lands, and using archaeological findings as well as eyewitness accounts, David Abulafia explores the social lives of the inhabitants, the motivations and tensions of the first transactions and the swift transmutation of wonder to vicious exploitation. Lucid, readable, and scrupulous, this is a work of humane engagement with a period in which a tragically violent standard was set for European conquest across the world." - from the dj.

10 ADAS, Michael Studies in Comparative World History series Prophets of Rebellion : Millenarian Protest Movements against the European Colonial Order. in dustjacket

ADAS, Michael. Prophets of Rebellion : Millenarian Protest Movements against the European Colonial Order. Chapel Hill : The University of North Carolina Press, (1979). Pp (6),[vii]-xxvii,(3),3-243,(1). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. A volume in the Studies in Comparative World History series. "This study provides new approaches to the writing of comparative history and to the analysis of social protest movements, by combining five case studies with other evidence on millennial movements, Michael Adas constructs a framework for the study of the relationship between millenarian expectations, prophetic leaders, and violent social protest. The participants in these rebellions sought to change unacceptablesociocultural systems by extralegal means rather than by constitutional me thods, by force rather than by reform, withdrawal, or passive resistance. Each of the groups mounted a rebellion aimed at the overthrow not only of the political regime but also of the existing sociocultural order. The authorviews these rebellions from the perspectives of both the colonizer incumbe nts and the participants themselves. He analyzes the causes which give riseto these movements of protest gainstst the changes and dislocations engend ered by European conquest and colonization of diverse societies in Africa, Asia, and POceania. He moves from an examination of causation to a consideration of the factors that influenced the mode of protest that was adopted and he discusses the techniques of organization, ritual, and magic that wereused to offset European technological superiority. He pays special attenti on to the careers of the prophets who played central roles in these movements and to the importance of their millenarian visions as catalysts of protests. The work concludes with a discussion of the patterns displayed by the actual revolts, the campaigns of repression launched by the Europeans, and the historical legacy of these movements. The five rebellions that Michael Adas examines in this study are: the revolt led by Prince Dipanagara in theNetnerlands East Indies (1825-1830), the Pai Maire or Hau Hau movement of the Maoris of New Zealand (1864-c. 1867), the Birsa disturbance among the Mundas of Chota Nagpur in east-central India (1890-1900), the Maji Maji rebellions in German East Africa (1905-1906), and the Saya San uprisings in Burma (1930-1932)." (from the dj). Contents : Foreword by Philip D. Curtin; Introduction; 1. Contexts for five rebellions; 2. Causes for revolt: colonialtransformations and relative deprivation; 3. An absence of alternatives; 4 . Prophets and millenarian visions; 5. Toward violence: abortive repressionand the rise of secondary leaders; 6. Mobilisation: symbol and ritual, tal isman and sympathetic magic; 7. Rebellion, suppression and impact; 8. Prophetic rebellion as a type of social protest.

18 ALBANESE, Catherine L. Nature Religion in America : From the Algonkian Indians to the New Age. First Edition in dustjacket.
University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1990, ISBN:0226011453 
ALBANESE, Catherine L. Nature Religion in America : From the Algonkian Indians to the New Age . Chicago & London : University of Chicago Press, (1990). First Printing. Pp (6),vii-xvi,1-267,(5). Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "This ground-breaking study reveals an unorganized and previously unacknowledged religion at the heart of American culture. Nature, Albanese argues, has provided a compelling religious center throughout American history. In a book of remarkable originality and vision, Albanese charts the multiple histories of American nature religion and explores the moral and spiritual responses the encounter with nature has provoked throughout American history. Tracing the connections between movements and individuals both unconventional and established, Albanese treats figures from popular culture, such as the nineteenth-century Hutchinson Family Singers and almanac-version Davy Crockett, as well as historically prominent culture brokers, including Thomas Jefferson, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and John Muir. Just as there are variant understandings of what nature is, there are diverse nature religions. Moving beyond Algonkian Indians, Anglo-American Puritans, and Revolutionary War patriots, Albanese argues persuasively for a classic American double vision of nature, notably articulated by Emerson and Thoreau. On the one hand, nature was real, and Americans should live in harmony with it; on the other, nature was illusory, and they should master it with the power of mind. The conceptual crack between nature real and nature illusory dogged later Americans: Albanese explores nineteenth-century wilderness preservation and mind cure and turns her attention,too, to physical forms of ature healing in movements such as water cure, h omeopathy, and chiropractic. She goes on in the twentieth century to find that the quantum provides a powerful metaphor to fill the crack between contrary views of nature. And she discovers old and new together in politicallyorganized Greens and feminist followers of' the Goddess, who also share a common landscape with nature writer Annie Dillard and Bear Tribe founder Sun Bear, with Reiki initiate healers and practitioners of macrobiotics. Throughout Nature Religion in America, Albanese emphasizes those who have not been formally trained as theologians, ceremonial leaders, or ethical guides.She demonstrates that nature religion in America has flourished among a ca dre of people who have thought and acted for themselves. The first of its kind, this study is a preliminary guide to a vast and previously uncharted religious world."" - from the dj. Foreword, by Martin E.
