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).

""Adding to a dynamic new wave of scholarship in Atlantic history, The Loyal Atlantic offers fresh interpretations of the key roleplayed by Loyalism in shaping the early modern British Empire. This cohesi ve collection investigates how Loyalism and the empire were mutually constituted and reconstituted from the eighteenth century onward. Featuring contributions by authors from across Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom, The Loyal Atlantic brings Loyalism into a genuinely international focus. Through cutting-edge archival research, The Loyal Atlantic contextualizes Loyalism within the larger history of the British Empire. It also details how, far from being a passive allegiance, Loyalism changed in unexpected and fascinating ways - especially in times of crisis. Most importantly, The Loyal Atlantic demonstrates that neither the conquest of Canada nor the American Revolution can be properly understood without assessing the meanings of Loyalism in the wider Atlantic world."

Index. 8vo, illustrated reddish-brown card covers. In the Sourcebooks in Negro History series. “Dating fromthe heyday of Garveyism in the 1920's, Harlem's Congregation of Commandmen t Keepers, under the leadership of Rabbi Wentworth A. Matthew, represents an important stage of the black man's spiritual odyssey in the New World. Kept from all communion with his past through slavery and later stripped of the legal equality gained during Reconstruction, the American Negro has had to face the terrible task of creating ex nihilo his very identity. The sustaining myth of an Ethiopian-Hebrew origin , however inaccurate and set against a white Christianity, has sometimes put this small sect on the path toward “remoralization,” shared dignity, and a precious sense of self-reclamation. Dr. Brotz extrapolates from their achievement to a genuine and original analysis of the Negro's life style and place in a society defined by the white man. The political and historical material available here provide an indispensable introduction to what W.E.B. Dubois prophetically called the problem of the twentieth century, the problem of the color line.” - from theback cover.

September 17, 1774, Manchester, England - d. November 3, 1857, Saint John, New Brunswick) British naval officer and explorer. See DCB Vol. 8. "William Owen belongs to the first generation of naval surveyors. Afer a hectic time as youngofficer in the Fleet against the French, he made a career of hydrographic surveying during the Pax Britannica that followed the Napoleonic wars. First he charted the Great Lakes of Canada, then he led a squadron which in four years surveyed 20,000 miles of the coastline of Africa. Tropical disease decimated his crews, and half of his officers perished: the 300 charts thatthey produced, one senior officer obeserved, 'may be said to have been dra wn and coloured with drops of blood'. Owen's fierce hatred of the slave trade diverted him from surveying and often landed him n political hot water, but Imperialists credit him with helping to lay the foundations of British East Africa and also the Gold Coast. His book, Narrative of Voyages, published in 1833 and illustrated with charts, was a best seller. He retired in 1835 and spent the last twenty years of his life in Eatsern Canada, ruling feudally over the Island of Campobello, New Brunswick, which his family had owned since the eighteenth century. This book covers the war at sea againstNapoleon, the early history of Canada, the 1812-14 American War [War of 18 12], African exploration, the anti-slavery campaingn in the nineteenth century in the Indian OCean and West Africa, and ther history of British hydrography. The book is profusely illustrated by specially-drawn maps and by period engravings." - from the dustjacket [dj NOT with this copy]. Contents: 1. Origins; 2. The Campobello Settlement; 3.
