"This exciting new book provides an account of the transformation of radical ideals and action during the decades in which the first industrial society was born. It spans the period from the outbreak of the American Revolution to the Chartist petition, and shows how the ideas of modern democracy, first established by events in America, were substantially changed as a result of the French revolution and the reactions to subversive "Jacobinism".

The authors examine various streams of radicallism whiich contributed to the reform movement. Radicalism is identified" as that set of ideals and associated organisations which sought it to institute a reform of the political system in a democratic direction. The study focuses onn the men and women who worked for this change from outside the political nation, who were truly representative of those people for whom democratic reform was essential. Based on suibstantial original research this work at last provides a coherent account early radical activities in England." - from the dj.

With tables, graphs and maps in the text. 8vo, scarlet red cloth, white & blue lettering to spine. "This book takes an entirelynew approach to the evolution of cities and of societies in premodern peri ods. Refining the theory advanced in his earlier study of China and Japan, Gilbert Rozman examines the development of Russia over several centuries with emphasis on the period immediately preceding the Industrial Revolution. He makes possible comparison of urbanization in five countries (including England and France as well as Russia) and develops a systematic framework for analyzing cities of varying size Treatment of Russia includes a history of urban development prior to 1750, an examination of late eighteenth-century social structure as it related to cities, and a study of regional variations in urbanization. The author presents a wealth of information until now unavailable in English. Since this information is provided in a format similar to that used in the earlier book, data on Russia can readily be placed in broad perspective. Comparisons with the other countries show that Russia's development was less slow than has been supposed. Separate sections on En gland and France supply estimates of the number of settlements at each level of their urban hierarchies." (from the dj).

Pp (10),[ix-xii,(4),[3]-276,(12). Illustrated. 8vo, turquoise cloth spine, turquoise paper-covered boards. "By the middle of the nineteenth century, as scientists explored the frontiers ofpolar regions and the atmosphere, the ocean remained silent and inaccessib le. The history of how this changed—of how the depths became a scientific passion and a cultural obsession, an engineering challenge and a political attraction—is the story that unfolds in Fathoming the Ocean. "In a history at once scientific and cultural, Helen Rozwadowski shows us how the Western imagination awoke to the ocean's possibilities—in maritime novels, in the popular hobby of marine biology, in the youthful sport of yachting, and in the laying of a trans-Atlantic telegraph cable. The ocean emerged as important new territory, and scientific interests intersected with those of merchant-industrialists and politicians. Rozwadowski documents the popular crazesthat coincided with these interests—from children's sailor suits to the ho me aquarium and the surge in ocean travel. She describes how, beginning in the 1860s, oceanography moved from yachts onto the decks of oceangoing vessels, and landlubber naturalists found themselves navigating the routines ofa working ship's physical and social structures. "Fathoming the Ocean offe rs a rare and engaging look into our fascination with the deep sea and intothe origins of oceanography—origins still visible in a science that focuse s the efforts of physicists, chemists, geologists, biologists, and engineers on the common enterprise of understanding a vast, three-dimensional, alien space." - from the dj, which also has a favourable review by Dalhousie's Eric L.

"The year 1957 marked the publication of Robert Ruark's best seller, 'The Old Man and the Boy', a tale of 'infinite warmth and wisdom, love and understanding.' It told of the Boy, Ruark himself, and the Old Man, his grandfather, as they roamed the North Carolina outdoors together, savoring the sights, sounds, and smells of the earth. As they explored the woods and fished the streams, the Old Man talked and the Boy listened. And as he listened, the Boy learned. The Old Man is now gone from the earth, but not from the memory of the Boy. In the pages of the present book, 'The Old Man's Boy Grows Older', the Boy has grown up to new adventures, tocollege, to a seaman's berth on a North Atlantic freighter [pp. 33-54], to African safaris, and treks to the world's far corners -- and to other dogs and boys who now follow him. But the Old Man is still there. He is there i n anecdotal memories awakened by the sight of a tiger in Africa, a dog in Spain, or by the tantalizing smell of a hearty meal prepared over an outdoorfire. The echoes of the Old Man's patient instruction, his gentle humor, a nd his warm companionship are here again, guiding the BOy as he meets his adult problems and adventures." - from the dustjacket.

Small 8vo, blue cloth, silver lettering to spine. Johannes Rüber (b. January 18, 1928 in Braunschweig) is a German author and poet. Originally publshed as Die Heiligsprechung des Johann Sebastian Bach: Eine Papstlegende. "It is the dream of Pope Gregory XIX to raise Bach to the ranks of the saints. He was already an old man when called, from an obscure monastery in Burgundy where he haa been organist before becoming Abbot, to fill the Chair of Peter, and he has defined no dogma, issued no famous encyclical, pronounced no memorable canonisation: but if only he were to enrich the canon by the creation of St. Jean-Sebastien, he would die content. Gregory approaches the bishops of Bach's own Lutheran faith and finds them as divided as his own advisers in Rome; yet he proceeds, and as a first step brings all the parties together at a great Bach festival in Rome. The story sweepsto its climax in the tense debate on the canonisation, at which the Pope p resides and makes his own contribution in the form of a performance of a Bach partita; and the issue hangs on whether the Pope's quiet determination can hold out as long as his frail mortality. The time is approximately now, ana the author calls his work a 'modern papal legend'. It is also a joyful little work of art—a swift and moving narrative filled with the glory of music and of goodness." (from the dj).
