ADAMS, Eleanor N. Old English Scholarship in England from 1566-1800 . [New Haven, CT]: Archon Books, 1970. Pp. [1]-204,(4). 8vo, blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Yale Studies in English, volume 55. "When Old English was a spoken language there was no scholarship, in the strict sense. How andwhen did the study of the language and literature of Old English begin and what obstacles did it meet in its development? The first old English book was published in 1566 and the first professorship of the language in an English university was established in 1795. This study has considerably wider implications than its title might imply. It connects a literary movement ofa peculiar kind with the general political and religious history of Englan d. In a broader sense, it touches upon all men - in what are they interested, and why, at a given time? how do they learn? how do they build upon the past?" - from the dj.

3 ADAMS, S.M. SOPHOCLES. Phoenix Supplementary Volumes, 3). Sophocles the Playwright. The Phoenix, Journal of the Classical Associationof Canada, Supplementary Volume III. Hardcover in dustjacket.
University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1967, 
(SOPHOCLES). ADAMS, S.M. Sophocles the Playwright. The Phoenix, Journal of the Classical Association of Canada, Supplementary Volume III. (Toronto): University of Toronto Press, (1967). Third Printing. Pp. (4),v-viii,(2),[1]-182. 8vo, red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "In Professor Adams' view, a Sophocles play is not the work of a writer feeling his way, with occasional flashes of genius, towards a later and more effective art-form, but one possessing complete dramatic unity. To contemporary Athenians nothing in these plays was undramatic; nothing was superfluous and nothing missing; the plays were artistic wholes. To recognize the basic unity of Sophocles' plays, one must fully realize the importance of religion in the drama of the time. Tragedy in ancient Greece was a form of religious observance, its subject matter drawn almost exclusively from legend. The controlling power of the gods, and their participation in the affairs of men, are the apparatus on which the dramatic unity depends. It is easy to lose sight of the religious aspect of the plays, for Sophocles, in particular, presents his human story so powerfully that a modern audience might easily see it as the only important aspect of the play. However, a Sophoclean drama is at once the fascinating presentation of a story, and a demonstration of the way in which mortals, with all their strength and greatness, are guided or supported by Olympian will and wisdom. The plays of Sophocles were constructed within theforms peculiar to their day, and should be judged accordingly." - from the dustjacket.

8 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.

Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to brown panels to spine. In The History of Human Society series. "The epic story of American society, from pre-Colonial times to the end of the Civil War is unfolded here in a swift and sweeping synthesis. John Alden has sought primarily to put the multitudinous facets of the rich and varied past, so often separately studied by others, into a clear and just perspective. He begins with a notable chapter on the American Indians, and then goes on to the English, French, and other pioneers, emphasizing the educaitonal, religious and political heritageeach brought from Europe. He presents a swift and lucid picture of the Col onial Period, usually shown as an intricate morass of sectarian bickering. He puts the American Revolution, the writing of the constitution, and the opportune Louisiana Purchase into the panorama of world history. He shows how the aristocratic federalists were ousted by a second and more democratic revolution, the Jacksonian, and makes clear the powerful social forces at work. As the pioneers moved west, the very foundations of American society were altered. And the Civil War was a crucial social as well as political turning point" (from the dj).

ALLEN, Robert S. His Majesty's Indian Allies : British Indian Policy in TheDefence of Canada, 1774-1815. Toronto & Oxford : Dundurn Press, 1992. Firs t Paperback Printing. Pp. (6),7-294,(2), including plates. Illustrated. 8vo, art illustrated green card covers with white lettering to front cover andspine. "Today the First Nations are demanding a new recognition of their p lace in Canada. For them this demand is a renewal of the historical relationship between themselves and the European newcomers, based on mutual respect and a separate but equal status in which neither side would interfere wihthe integrity of the other's culture, language, law, or religious and poli tical systems. 'His Majesty's Indian Allies' is a study of the roots of this relationship and an examination of British Indian policy in North Americafrom the time of the American Revolution to the end of the War of 1812, wi th particular focus on Canada. Remarkably little recognition has been givenot the vital military role of native people in the defence of Canada. More precisely, the long relationship between native people and thje crown in C anada, based on formal alliances, was instrumental in preserving and protecting the integrity of the territories that became Canada. The cohesive vehicle for implementing policy directives was the British Indian Department, the forerunner of the present Department of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada. Although plagued by a continuous struggle over land issues and native sovereignty, an enduring and symbiotic relationship evolved between the native people and the British Crown in Canada that was rooted in the mutual need and desire for protection and survival. In his conclusion, Allen argues that the historic chain of friendship between native people and the crown has been recast, but not particularly altered, in the contemporary world of government-native relations. In detailing and assessing these military alliances during the formative and critical years in the development of the nations in North America, Robert Allen has brought refreshing new insights intothe field of native history." - from rear.

AMIT, Vered, and Nigel RAPPORT. The Trouble with Community : Anthropological Reflections on Movement, Identity and Collectivity. London / Sterling, VA: Pluto Press, (2002). First Paperback Printing. Pp (6),1-185,(1). Index. 8vo, illustrated white card covers, lettered in black. "'Community' is one of social science's longest-standing concepts. The assumption, of much social science, has been that it is in communities -- and to communities -- that human individuals, as social and cultural beings, belong. Communities aresaid to embody that interactive environment from which individuals' identi ties and senses of self derive, and in which they continue to dwell. The trouble with 'community' is that this is not necessarily so; the personal social networks of individuals' actual experience crosscut collective categories, situations and institutions. Communities can prove unviable or imprisoning; the reality of community life and identity can often be very differentfrom the ideology and the ideal. In this provocative new book, anthropolog ists Vered Amit and Nigel Rapport draw on their various ethnographic experiences to reappraise the concept and the reality of 'community', in the light of globalization, religious fundamentalism, identity politics, and renascent localisms. How might anthropology better apprehend social identities which are intrinsically plural, transgressive and ironic? What has anthropology to say about the way in which civil society might hope to accommodate the on-going construction and the rightful expression of such migrant identities? Nigel Rapport and Vered Amit give their own answers to these questionsbefore entering into dialogue to assess each other's positions." (from the back cover).

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1984, ISBN:0521257603 1984 0521257603 / 9780521257602 
ANDREWS, Kenneth R. Trade, Plunder and Settlement : Maritime Enterprise andthe Genesis of the British Empire 1480-1630. Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, (1984). First Printing. Pp. (6),v-ix,(1),1-394,(10). 8vo, black cloth with gilt lettering to spine.

"Not since 1945 has a general account of the origins of the British Empire been published, as if the demise of the empire freed us from our imperial past and historians from any obligation to digest it. Of course, it has done nothing of the kind, but it does enable the historian today to approach that past in a more critical spirit and to attempt a deeper and more detached analysis than could have been expected a generation ago. The purpose of this work is therefore not merely to reco unt but to explain the course of English overseas expansion and the beginning of the overseas empire; a prolonged pregnancy, culminating in a difficult birth and sickly infancy.

The introductory essay discusses the forces and motives involved in the expansion movement, which is seen as being part of a wider European movement and derivative in many ways from it. The author considers the attitude and conduct of the Tudors and early Stuarts towards this fundamentally commercial movement and examines the nature and importance of sea power, the contribution of different social groups, and the relevance of religious and economic ideals as well as nationalistic sentiment.These various themes are taken up again in the narrative chapters which follow, dealing with the enterprises of exploration, trade, plunder and colonisation successively through from the early Bristol quest for 'Brasil' to the diverse ventures of the 1620s. The last chapter comments on the itneraction of trade, plunder and settlement and the wave-like chronological pattern of the English advance to oceanic empire." - from the dustjacket.
