BURBANK, Jane. Intelligentsia and Revolution : Russian Views of Bolshevism,1917-1922. New York and Oxford : Oxford University Press, 1986. First Prin ting. Pp. (4),[v]-viii,(2),3-340,(4). 8vo, maroon cloth with gilt letteringto spine. "From the Bolshevik victory in 1917 to the consolidation of powe r five years later, the Russian revolution inspired a brilliant outburst oftheory and criticism among Russian intellectuals who struggled to comprehe nd their country's dramatic social upheaval. Faced with the collapse of themonarchy and disintegration of life as it had been, Marxists, monarchists, anarchists, populists, liberals, and nationalists alike contributed to a g rowing collection of critical and speculative thought. The October coup rekindled issues that had concerned the intelligentsia in the past -- issues that are still hotly debated today. Why had the revolution happened in Russia? Was this socialism? What did Bolshevik power mean for Russia and the Western world? How would the values of the Russian people be affected? In 'Intelligentsia and Revolution', Jane Burbank recovers these early responses tothe revolution, offering a multi-faceted image of the revolution seen from within. She surveys the vast body of unknown or forgotten polemical litera ture inspired by the Bolshevik takeover in 1917 and the ensuing social, political, and economic turmoil. From Kropotkin, the voice of Russian anarchism, to Ustrialov, a xenophobic nationalist, Burbank follows the disparate theories of these intellectuals, tracing their commitments and dilemmas through the turbulent years of civil war, and for many, into the Russian emigration. Her insightful analysis reveals how the revolution revitalized the political culture of the intelligentsia and, at the same time, exposed the fragile basis of its existence. An informative study of the Russian intelligentsia in its classic role as social critic and articulator of national ideals, 'Intelligentsia and Revolution' paints an important group portrait. it skillfully depicts a broad range of perspectives on the revolution during a crucial period when both action and inaction counted and when the tactical and institutional choices made by the intelligentsia were critical for the future." - from the dustjacket.

Large 8vo, brown cloth, white lettering to spine. “This is a unique study of the spirit and radiance of the eight hundred years of Muslim dominance of Southern Spain, from the time of the invasion of the Iberian peninsula in 711 until the Renaissance. It examines the manner of life and the achievements in architecture, poetry, philosophy, religion, and music that developed in Andalusia, the center of the North African Arab empire on the European continent. The Arab contribution to human progress - astronomy, mathematics, cosmology, the variety and magnificent wealth of architecture form - could fully develop in Spain and is a remarkable legacy of a people who entered the land as conquerors, and became peaceful masters. From the establishment of the first misque in Córdova [sic] in 1785 until the time of their expulsion by the Catholic kings in 1492, the Moors dominated the intellectual life of the area and had a profoundimpact on European civilization which assimilated many of their ideas.

"From the middle of the thirteenth century to 1517 A.D. Jerusalem was ruled by the Mamluk Sultans, whose domains stretched over most of the Levant and Egypt. Today, their architecture still characterises the Holy City, surrounding the exceptional presence of the earlier buildings of the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque, which are setapart within al-Haram al-Sharif. This book records for the first time the total magnificence of design and the skill of the craftsmen of that period.The studied elegance of these buildings still represents to many people th roughout the world the continuing presence of Islam in this, the Holy City of the Pprophet's Night Journey (Mi'raj) and the First Qibla, through fourteen centuries of Islamic history. This meticulous work, in which the architectural drawings have been prepared to precise standards, is the result of fifteen years of painstaking and definitive surveying by thehe British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem, enhanced by detailed socio-historical research of the Mamluk period, with particular regard to the Old City. This edition represents a corpus of standard reference on the subject for all time, in a format and style commensurate with the special position the city of Jerusalem holds in the three great monotheistic traditions."

BURKE, Clara Heintz, as told to Adele COMANDINI. Doctor Hap. New York : Coward-McCann, Inc., (1961). First Edition. Pp (8),9-319,(1). 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Tourville, Alaska, A bibliography 734. "After all, it would only be for a year — she certainly would be in good hands. And so, in 1907, Clara Heintz' mother permitted her gentle, 19-year-old daughter to accompany Archdeaconess Carter to the primitive mission outpost of St.Jonns-in-the-Wilderness, above the Arctic Circle in Alaska. After an adven turesome trip via steamboat from Seattle, the two ladies, incongruously clad in their city dresses, arrived at their destination. The little mission was operated by lone deacon who administered to tribe ot Eskimos and Indianswho had never before seen white women. These simple people were half-ruiii ined by disease and occasionally stupefied by moonshine sold to tnem by unscrupulous trappers. They were a people who slashed their children's tonguesfor lying and burned their hands for petty thievery, and who were ruled by witch doctors and magic. Life was hard for a young white girl, gracefully reared in Los Angeles, and she was lonely... Then Grafton Burke arrived. The handsome young doctor had just completed his internsmp in New York and was dedicating his life to work as a medical missionary. Clara fell in love in short order — but without a romantic word having passed between them . Dr. Hap soon set off for Fort Yukon where he dreamed of setting up a hospital. This is the heartwarming and exciting story of how Clara and Hap met again by chance and were married. It is Clara Heintz Burke's tribute to a tine,selfless man who unhesitatingly dogsledded miles through 30- below weather to aid sick Eskimos and trappers, and who, despite lack of funds, shatteri ng calamities and the vicious belligerence of renegade whites (including so-called men of law), set up a fine modern hospital in the wilderness, and brought health, civilization and the realization of God to a depressed, ignorant people. Through it shines the courage of a lovely, lively woman who gave up the joys of her children's company so that they might be educated in the United States, and devoted herself to tfle man she loved, the alleviation of misery and the service of God."

A different distribution of the contents, while it has made the volumes more nearly eq ual in their respective bulk, has, at the same time, been fortunately foundto produce a more methodical arrangement of the whole. The first volume co ntains those literary and philosophical works by which Mr. Burke was known,previous to the commencement of his public life as a stateman, and the pol itical pieces which were written by hime between the time of his first becoming connected with the Marquis of Rockingham, and his being chosen Member for Bristol. In the second are comprehended all his speeches and pamphlets from his first arrival at Bristol, as a candidate, in the year 1774, to hisfarewell address from the hustings of that city, in the year 1780; and als o what he himself published relative to the affairs of India. The remainingcomprize his works since the French revolution, with the exception of the Letter to Lord Kenmare on the Penal Laws against Irish Catholics, whcih wasprobably inserted where it stands from its relation to the subject of th L etter addressed by him, at a later period, to Sir Hercules Langrishe." - from the advertisement for the new edition.

7177 BURKE, Edmund History of Archery. First Edition in dustjacket

BURKE, Edmund. The History of Archery. New York : William Morrow and Company, 1957. First Edition. Pp (8),9-224,+ 16 pp plates. 8vo, green cloth spinelettered in black, blue cloth boards illustrated in black. "If you are one of America's ten million enthusiastic archers, you have probably heard of Edmund Burke. He is a founder-member of the Society of Archer Antiquaries and the author of a handbook on archery published several years ago. After years of searching in vain for a complete history of archery at a popular price, Mr. Burke — professionally a free-lance writer and photographer — decided to write it himself. This book is the happy result. It is fascinating to trace the role of the bow and arrow in the cultural development of man. For example: .. did you know mat the invention ot the bow ranks with the discovery of he use of fire and the invention of the wheel? . . or that the bow was man's first attempt at storing energy? ... or that the bow and arrow were first used in the Upper Paleolithic Period, over ten thousand years ago? From these ancient beginnings, Mr. Burke traces the history of archery to the emergence of the gun as a superior weapon. He not only includes the factual history of the making of bows, the art of fletching, etc.. but he gives colorful accounts of famous battles in which archers played the decisive roles. He describes the terrifying armies of Genghis Khan, where each mancarried sixty arrows, some with heads shaped like the open blades of a pai r of scissors to sever an enemy's arm at the shoulder. He brings to life again the battles of Crecy, Poitiers and Agincourt, where English bowmen defeated the might of Eurooean chivalry and England emerged as a world power. He explodes the commercial myth of the American Indian as a superior archer and even deals with Robin Hood. Through war and peace, necessity and sport,down through the ages the bow and arrow has called upon the keenest physic al aptitudes of man. The sportsman-archer of today shares in the great tradition that makes this book the liveliest kind of historical reporting." (from the dj). Contents : 1. The Beginnings. 2. Bowmen in the Mist. 3. The OldKingdoms. 4. Greece—Persia—and the Heirs. 5. Archery in the Roman Era. 6. The Scourges of God—Archers out of Asia. 7. The Yeomen Bowmen. 8. The Red Archers. 9. Just Yesterday—and Tomorrow.

Index. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt letteringto spine. “Languages and Jargons is a contribution to the social history o f language. [...] This volume is particularly concerned with the special semi-private languages, dialects or jargons developed by different social groups, whether they are professions, like lawyers, doctors and teachers, voluntary associations like the Masons, social classes, or groups on the marginof society, such as beggars or Gypsies. The contributors are concerned to describe these jargons as they were spoken in particular places and times, to analyse their functions (which range from keeping secrets from outsidersto reinforcing a sense of collective identity), and to account for change over time. They also study the relations between these forms of speech and their speakers and the outside world - the rejection of jargon, the domestication of technical terms, and the transformation of former jargons into ordinary languages. The volume is mainly concerned with different forms of English from the 16th to the 20th century, but some contributors range further afield, from Calo to Urdu.” (from the dj).

"Even before publication this extraordinary book created a sensation both sides of the Atlantic. The author of the book is Richard Burke, who was Edward Kennedy'spersonal aide for ten years. He probably came to know Edward Kennedy more intimately than anyone outside the closed circle of the Senator's family. He was, significantly, usually the last person to see the Senator at night and the first to see hm in the morning. He produces startling new information about Kennedy's political life and will astonish even experienced Kennedywatchers with the details of Kennedy's private life. Needless to say the b ook makes compulsive reading, even if you know nothing about American politics. It is much more than a memoir about the Senator. The whole Kennedy family is portrayed in a new light. The hearbreaking trial of Ethel, Bobby Kennedy's wife, with her numerous unruly children are colourfully chronicled. JFK in the White House is unedifyingly exposed. All in all, a book that will give an insider's view of the Kennedy's and American poltics, and the wreckage that can lie behind the most glamorous facades." (from the dj).

A volume in the Studies in Gender and History series (general editors: Franca Iacovetta and Craig Heron). "In the summer of 1910, the University of Toronto opened its settlement house in one of Toronto's crowded manufacturing districts. The university's first active response to social problems in the city beyondits grounds, University Settlement (modelled on Toynbee Hall) was a consci ous attempt by its advocates to apply the social views of British idealism to the problems generated by poverty. It was also the product of a philosophy that held that the study of social problems would lead to their solution. In 'Seeking the Highest Good', Sara Burke provides an appraisal of the social thought of a succession of influential academics at the university, from W.J. Ashley, the first professor of political economy, and his successor, James Mavor, to the social philosopher E.J. Urwick -- the men who forged and preserved into the late 1930s the distinctive 'Toronto ideal'." -from the introductory preamble. Contents: 1. British Roots: Arnold Toynbee, W.J.

Index. 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Jean-Baptiste Lamarck was a biological Janus, at once a highly competent taxonomist in a traditional mold and a bold, almost visionary, philosopher of nature who aspired to contrive an all-embracing "physics of the earth" by sheer force of intellect. Lamarck is generally remembered only for his ideas about the inheritance of acquired characters, ideas hedid not originate or take special credit for, ideas that were only one par t of his broad theory of evolution. [...] In this, the first modern book-length study of Lamarck, Richard Burkhardt examines the origin and development of Lamarck's theory of organic evolution, the major theory prior to Darwin." (from the dj). Contents : 1. Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, naturalist-philosopher. 2. The background to Lamarck's biological thought. 3. Eighteenth-century views of organic mutability. 4. The preoccupations of the new professor:chemistry, meteorology, and geology. 5. Invertebrate zoology and the inspi ration of Lamarck's evolutionary views. 6. Lamarck's theory of evolution. 7. The frustrations and consolations of the naturalist-philosoph. Very good in nicked,, spine-browned dustjacket. 95.00
